FRESH + FEATURED
BILL STEPHENS MODEL 1315 CHAIR | $995 Iconic early 1970s chair designed by Bill Stephens and made by Knoll. It was first used in the then-new Yale School of Architecture student center. Design highlights are the organic bent wood frame and suspended bucket seat. This frame is rejuvenated but unaltered. The upholstery is in excellent condition.
GUSTAV BAHUS (NORWAY) TEAK SIDEBOARD | $2,995 Dramatic and sleek 1960s teak sideboard designed Alf Aarseth and made in Norway by Gustav Bahus. It features cabinets on each side bypass door access. Each compartment has an adjustable shelf. Each of the four drawers is lined with green felt. This room-defining piece is in exceptional condition. Dimensions are 74-3/4″L x 16-7/8″D x 30-7/8″H.
DANISH TEAK KING HEADBOARD | $895 If a headboard can affect your dreams, this stunning king headboard from Moreddi (Denmark) will give you big, bold ones. Restored with a teak oil finish. Dimensions are 81-1/2″L x 37″H.
DANISH TEAK QUEEN HEADBOARD | $645 Add an organic modern element to your bedroom with this teak headboard sized for a queen bed.

Headboard dimensions are 60″L x 2-1/2″D x 34-3/4″H.
RESTORED MID-CENTURY BOOKCASE | $795 This four-shelf walnut bookcase was custom-made in the 1960s and saw a lot of life in a big family house. We restored it to reemphasize the rich walnut and give it a new lease on life. It has three adjustable shelves. Dimensions are 33-3/4″W x 11″D x 52-1/2″H.
CONANT BALL NORSEMATES ROOM DIVIDER | $2,695 This free-standing room divider is an extraordinary combination; it’s both a work of art and a practical piece of furniture. From the Conant Ball Furniture Company Norsemates collection in the late 1950s to early 1960s, it is made of solid birch. Although its primary purpose is to partition larger spaces, it does so with a certain airiness: open dowels in the back and a raised bench-style base. (When it was originally offered, buyers could customize with accessories like hanging shelves and drawer sets.) We’ve imagined a number of uses for it. Our favorite is a stereo bench with one side of the base for components and the other for LPs. In exceptional condition. Dimensions are 52″W x 18-3/4″D (15″ bench depth) x 62-3/8″H.
JENS RISOM 4-DRAWER CHEST – CUSTOM LEGS | $1,895 Tinkering with a modern master’s furniture designs is a delicate balance between making the piece functional and honoring the original aesthetic. We think we nailed it with a pair of Jens Risom Design chests that were missing their bases. The first part of the process was to restore the walnut exterior and then polish the signature Risom brass drawer pulls. Next, we collaborated with a local maker to design and craft solid walnut legs that are both strong and integrated. This is the four-drawer version. See our listing of the three-drawer companion. Dimensions are 36″W x 21″D (plus 1-1/2″ drawer pull projection) x 31-1/4″H.

We think we nailed it with a pair of Jens Risom Design chests that were missing their bases. The first part of the process was to restore the walnut exterior and then polish the signature Risom brass drawer pulls. Next, we collaborated with a local maker to design and craft solid walnut legs that are both strong and integrated. This is the three-drawer version. See our listing of the four-drawer companion. Dimensions are 36″W x 21″D (plus 1-1/2″ drawer pull projection) x 31-1/4″H.
JENS RISOM WALNUT CREDENZA | $2,395 Certain mid-century designers continue to surprise us. Some of their furniture shows up recurringly, and then we discover a piece we’ve never seen before. This walnut credenza is our latest Risom surprise, with a minimalist profile and floating top. The storage is comprised of four individual cabinets, each with an adjustable/removable shelf. The back of the credenza is finished with an unadorned panel that we restored with fresh walnut veneer – and chose for its dramatic figuring. Fully restored. Dimensions are 66-1/2″L x 21-3/4″D (including the projection of the wood door handles) x 29-1/4″H.

CUSTOMIZED MID-CENTURY DISPLAY CABINET | $995 We love restoring long-neglected mid-century modern furniture. But we get an extra thrill when we’re able – typically out of necessity – to retrofit a piece with new components and make it something more than it was. Our partner used skill and imagination to convert an orphaned hutch into a freestanding display cabinet, with custom made walnut legs that give the cabinet a floating appearance. The cabinet, of course, is fully restored and the double bypass glass doors are in top condition. There are divided shelves behind the glass plus two open shelves and a dropfront cabinet opposite. Dimensions are 51-1/2″L x 12-1/2″D at the base and 11″D at the top x 46″H.

VINTAGE CRAFTSMAN MADE WALNUT TABLES Keep it simple. But keep it high quality, too. That must have been the ethos of the craftsman who created these solid walnut accent tables. The design is straightforward with no frills, but the build quality and materials are top-notch. The long, low table can be used a coffee table or a bench; it’s that strong.

The cedar compartment has lots of capacity, so the bottom drawer is a plus. The exterior is book-matched walnut with burled wood down the center. This piece is fully restored and ready to enjoy. Dimensions are 35″W x 18″D x 29″H.
