Midcentury Monday #5


Today, a few eBay finds:

This drama queen is the Platner Arm Chair, designed by Warren Platner and manufactured by Knoll in 1962.  The steel wire spokes are a great modern look for a design that reminds me most of the woven wicker furniture my mom used to have.  This chair is destined for a swank smoking lounge!  Currently on eBay for $2499 plus s/h.

I'm a sucker for the unusual, which is why I find myself drawn toward this Gondola Sofa, possibly designed by Adrian Pearsall.  Definitely in want of a reupholster, but the seller promises there are no bed bugs so there's that, right?!  Current bid $800.

How beautiful is bent plywood?  I had already marked this Tulip Lounger Chair by Bella Mod LA down for today's MCMM entry before I even realized that this is a current take on the modern design.  Either way, doesn't that seat just beg to cradle your bottom?  I thought so.  Current bid $695.

Ye gods!  I am stunned by this Vintage Brass Starburst Convex Mirror.  This is even cooler than an atomic starburst clock!  I would die to hang this mirror over my fireplace for all my visitors to bask in its glory.  If only I had an extra $630 to fork over...

My last little nugget for this week's Midcentury Monday is this Danish Teak Shoji screen or room divider.  I love this screen's curvy bow-shaped slats.  $639.99 "sale"

Very cute blog girly! I love all the retro furniture. If only my house could look like that!

Thanks! I'd love for my house to be filled with this stuff too, but an even more perfect scenario would be getting sent back in time!
