MODERN SWIVEL LOUNGE CHAIR | $965 EACH Sit in the lap of style in this contemporary modern chair made by Steelcase. Designed for high-use commercial spaces yet refined enough for use in your home. Each chair (there are several available) is upholstered in textured red fabric that’s both durable and soft to the touch. The base is made of heavy-weight aluminum with a matte finish. The chairs have a 360-degree swivel and adjustable head rests. Dimensions are 35″W x 34-1/4″D x 41-1/4″H to top of the headrest.
RESTORED VINTAGE MAPLE CHAIRS | $275 EACH These vintage chairs spent their lives (until recently) serving student after student after student in a large regional university. But they’re built so well that even after decades of tough service they restored beautifully. The frames are solid maple with extensive curly figuring and have exposed hardware – all replaced for uniformity. We upholstered the seats and backs in an intricate geometric print fabric. These could serve new generations of readers, studiers, gamers, watchers and guests or all sorts. Sold individually.
EAMES FIBERGLASS ARMCHAIR | $395 Modern classic Charles and Ray Eames-designed fiberglass armchair dating from 1960-1962. This chair features a red-orange shell on zinc “H” base with all original parts – shock mounts and gliders included – in excellent condition. Embossed Herman Miller emblem and paper tag. We have other authentic Eames fiberglass chairs in stock with various bases.
ROYAL METAL MFG. ‘ROYALCHROME’ SOFA | $695 This Royalchrome sofa was made by Royal Metal Manufacturing Co. with a design dating to the pre-World War II Machine Age movement. It has a chrome-plated tube steel frame and features a backward arching continuous sweep. The frame is in excellent structural condition: strong and without distortion. The finish is exceptional for its age. The coil spring seat cushions are firm and wrapped in a dense fiber. The seat backs use the same dense material. The cushion covers are a durable cotton duck fabric in black with white piping. Dimensions are 69-1/2L x 39″D x 33″H.
6-DRAWER WALNUT LOWBOY DRESSER | $845 This mid-century dresser from Basic-Witz carefully threads a design needle. The styling is streamlined and uncluttered yet there are small details – like the distinctive drawer pulls – that set it apart. As usual, we’ve fully restored this piece to draw out the book-matched walnut drawer fronts and highlight the handsome wood figuring. Dimensions are 54″L x 18″D x 30-3/4″H.
LANE ACCLAIM DRUM TABLE | $495 The drum accent table from the Lane Acclaim line is a versatile player, offering the expected functionality of an end table with the bonus of a generous storage cabinet. Fully restored. Dimensions are 26-3/4″ diameter x 20-1/4″H.
CUSTOMIZED FLIPTOP DESK-SERVER-TABLE | $445 Is it a tiny desk? A petite server-bar? Maybe a crafting table? While it began life as a table for a portable sewing machine, there are plenty of ways to press this clever piece into service now. The flip top doubles the amount of surface space you have, and we bolstered the support for it by adding a strong walnut slide-out. There’s also a hidden storage compartment that pops out from the side. Everything’s freshly restored. Dimensions are 26-1/4″W (52-5/8″W when fully open) x 18-1/8″D x 32″H.
TWO-TIER MEDIA BENCH-ACCENT TABLE | $295 If you’re looking for versatile furniture, this unusual two-tier table is worth consideration. Use it as a media bench for stereo components. Or as a plant stand, taking advantage of the durable laminate tops. Or it could be a coffee, end or bedside table. Solid wood frame fully restored and two surfaces with new white laminate tops. Dimensions are 30-3/4″L x 22″D x 19″H to the top tier and 12″H to the lower tier.
TILE MOSAIC SUNBURST COFFEE TABLE | $195 The sun will never set in your space with this vintage mosaic tile top coffee table. The eight-point sunburst design is made using white, black, orange and gold round tiles of varying sizes. The mosaic is set into a painted wood frame supported by four tapered legs. Dimensions are 30″ diameter x 15″ high.
MOSAIC TILE ACCENT TABLE | $245 Back in the day this was referred to as a smoking table, a casual accessory in hip homes that served as a smoker’s oasis. These days we don’t smoke that much, but this well-built little table still has plenty of utility. The tile top is perfect for parking a cold drink glass or hot coffee (or tea) mug. You could use it as a plant stand or just a stylish accent table. Mosaic tile top in gold, black and gold-flecked white nestled in a brass-coated aluminum base. Dimensions are 18″ diameter x 21-1/2″ tall.

BISSMAN SOLID OZARK WALNUT DRESSER | $1,195 Bissman Furniture, based out of Springfield, Missouri, produced highly distinctive furniture using solid walnut sourced from the surrounding Ozark region. The company was short-lived because of the founder’s death, but the pieces they produced were high quality and durable. This eight-drawer dresser epitomizes the Bissman style, with a streamlined design featuring rounded edges and sculpted pulls. This piece is fully restored. Dimensions are 58″L x 20-1/2″D 31-1/2″H.
MADE IN MINNESOTA: SOLID WALNUT DESK | $1,695 Our master furniture making partner never ceases to impress us. He creates original furniture designs and then builds and finishes each piece by hand.

A. SIBAU SCULPTED SOLID CHERRY CHAIRS | $795 EACH In a museum, it’s forbidden to sit on the artwork. But these sinuously sculpted solid cherry arm chairs invite you to break the rules, albeit in your own home. Designed and made in Italy in the 1980s by A. Sibau. There are three chairs available.
MADE IN MINNESOTA: WOOD FRAME EASY CHAIR | $1,195 We started the relationship with our long-time furniture making partner over a pair of chairs. And although he’s made many other types of furniture – desks, coffee tables, console tables, nightstands and sofas – his first love is still chairs. His all-original designs are handmade in his Minneapolis/St. Paul workshop. For this design he used solid white oak for its strength, intricate grain pattern and sustainability. The seating platform and backs are slightly angled for comfort but the frame provides a more upright sitting position. The cushions are a blue and white tweed.
DANISH MODERN TALL BACK LOUNGE CHAIRS | $775 EACH These contemporary Danish lounge chairs channel some of the best Scandinavian modern designs from the 20th Century. The frames are bentwood beech with a dark brown/black stain, and have tall backs. They are upholstered in black leather and have adjustable/removable headrests. There are two available.
MADE IN MINNESOTA: BENCH-COFFEE TABLE | $995 Another original from our furniture-making partner, and as always he’s paired form and function for fantastic furniture. His newest design is a combination bench-coffee table. Or maybe it’s the coffee table you’re allowed to put your feet up on. It’s built using solid red oak with a white-washed finish, giving it a strong Scandinavian vibe. The removable cushions are upholstered in a blue-gray tweed with button tufting. The boxed center of the bench-table creates the perfect place to stash reading material, TV remotes or a gaming controller. Dimensions are 56″L x 20-1/2″D x 19″H to the top of the boxed center.
NIELS MOLLER MODEL 80A STOOL | $675 Designed by Niels Otto Møller and made by J.L. Møllers Møbelfabrik, this Model 80A stool is a Danish modern design classic.

Dimensions are 19-1/2″L x 14″W x 18-1/2″H.
JACK CARTWRIGHT FOR FOUNDERS DRUM TABLE | $445 This walnut drum lamp table was designed by Jack Cartwright for Founders Furniture.

MILO BAUGHMAN PEDESTAL COFFEE TABLE | $795 Vintage coffee table with a sophisticated modern style: a square walnut top on a black pedestal base. The design is attributed to Milo Baughman. Restored top and rejuvenated base. Dimensions are 30″ square x 15-1/2″ tall.
