EAMES LCW CHAIRS IN ASH | $895 EACH The LCW Chair ( Lounge height side Chair on Wood base) was designed by Charles and Ray Eames in the late 1940s and originally manufactured by the Evans Molded Plywood Division. Herman Miller soon took over and the chair design achieved true icon status. These authentic models are from Herman Miller circa 2006 and made of layered ash plywood. They have never been used, and sat in covered storage for years. They are in mint condition and have all the original labels. Available individually.
EAMES FOLDING WOOD SCREEN (FWS) | $2,495 Designed and developed in 1946 by Charles and Ray Eames, this clever room divider might be just right for current times. We all need a little privacy, but it’s nice to share space with the right people, too. The Folding Wood Screen (FWS) adds flexibility and portability, with six undulating panels that unfold from a slim vertical to a five-foot divider. The panels are made using ash veneer on the front and back over layers of maple. Each panel is connected with a polypropylene mesh fabric, allowing flexible positioning of the panels. The FWS was in production from 1946 to 1955, retired and then reintroduced by Herman Miller in 1994. This piece is from that second generation of production. Open screen dimensions are 60″L x 2-1/4″D x 68″H, and 10″W in the folded position.
AKSEL KJERSGAARD TRI-FOLD TEAK MIRROR | $995 Teak-framed mirror by Aksel Kjersgaard (Denmark) opens to give you an expansive vanity mirror experience. The mirror is designed to be hung or it can rest – while opened – on a countertop. Dimensions are 25-9/16″W (closed) and 51-1/8″W (open) x 1-3/4″D x 23-1/2″H.

Dimensions are 20″W x 27″D x 21″H to the top tier and 14-1/4″H to the lower tier. Available individually.

The display areas are lighted. Freshly rejuvenated and in excellent condition. Dimensions are 67″L x 14″D x 60″H.
NEW: MADE IN MINNESOTA COFFEE TABLE | $795 This compact coffee table comes from the imagination and skills of our furniture-making partner. It’s another original design and scaled to fit alongside vintage mid-century furniture. Crafted using solid Santos mahogany, an extra-dense wood found in Mexico, Central America and South America. That makes this table especially durable and heavy. Dimensions are 42″L x 17-1/2″D x 16″H.
NEW: MADE IN MINNESOTA ACCENT TABLES | $895 PAIR Newly made accent table pair from our furniture-making partner. These are ideal for smaller spaces, between a pair of chair or as bedside tables.

SKOVBY EXTRA-LARGE TEAK DINING TABLE | $2,495 If you’re looking for a modern dining table that accommodates big groups, this teak draw leaf table can hold from 8 to 12 in comfort. Vintage Danish modern table by Skovby Mobelfabrik made in Denmark. It’s a large table from the get-go and has two self-storing leaves that draw from each end to super-size the table top. Dimensions with the leaves stored are 70-3/4″L x 40-1/4″D x 28-1/2″H. Length with both leaves extended is 125-1/2″. Freshly restored with a hand-rubbed oil finish.

MID-CENTURY HOOKER TALLBOY WITH CUSTOM HANDLES | $1,095 We applied the old adage “necessity is the mother of invention” to a real world situation. This walnut Hooker Mainline tallboy chest came with good bones and great potential. But the three bottom drawer pulls, made using alloy, were beyond repair. So our partner sourced distinctive walnut replacements giving the piece a one-of-a-kind look. Of course, the entire chest is fully restored, with book-matched walnut drawer fronts and even the original drawer pulls on the top two drawers. Dimensions are 36″W x 20″D x 43-1/2″H.
PASCOE IRON FRAME ACCENT CHAIR | $395 This Clifford Pascoe iron frame chair is often misidentified as a Paul McCobb design. Fair enough. There are some strong similarities. But this little beauty is all Pascoe – and then some, not only restored but elevated. The iron rod frame was cleaned and re-coated in black. The bentwood back was stripped, stained and sealed to reveal handsome wood grain. And the seat is freshly upholstered in vintage, chunky wool with a tattersall on herringbone pattern. The background is charcoal black and gray while the windowpane pane is multi-colored.
NIELS MOLLER MODEL 80A STOOL | $675 EACH Designed by Niels Otto Møller and introduced by J.L. Møller Møbelfabrik in 1963, the Model 80A stool is a Danish modern design classic. We have two available.

1959 LANE WALNUT + BURLWOOD ACCENT TABLE | $345 Walnut accent table from Lane Furniture circa 1959 with burlwood inlays and solid lower shelf. Fully restored. Dimensions are 20″W x 30″D x 20-1/4″H.
CUSTOMIZED VINTAGE SHADOWBOX | $265 We rarely have vintage shadowboxes in the store, but when we do they have to be really worthy. One of our +friends sourced this Illinois Moulding piece, but the images that flanked the mirror were damaged. So she replaced them using salvaged images from a large Turner Accessories print. The merger is an aesthetic success, with the wood box in a deep walnut finish and the moody skyline panels in saturated blues and greens. Dimensions are 39″ long x 18-3/4″ tall x 4-1/16″ projection.
OWL WALL SCULPTURE – TORCH CUT METAL | $345 Torch cut metal wall sculpture featuring two stylized owls on a craggy branch with crumpled leaves. Pretty cute but kinda spooky, too. Dimensions are 44”L x 6”D x 24”H.
GLOBE-WERNICKE STEEL BARRISTER BOOKCASE | $1,195 Handsome bookcase made of steel and glass. Made by Globe-Wernicke beginning in about 1915, modular bookcases like these were used in both home and office settings. This set includes three bookcase/display sections, matching base and top (five pieces in all). Each bookcase/display section has a flip-front door with glass to protect the contents from dust and other incursions. All have original glass and knobs, and there are original component stickers on most of the pieces – plus the metal Globe-Wernicke badge. Rejuvenated with a fresh coat of sprayed gray enamel paint that closely matches the original color. Dimensions are 33″W x 13″D x 56-1/2″H.

HUTCH TOP: Teak-framed sliding glass doors, six adjustable glass shelves and interior lights on each side. Dimensions 54″L x 12″D x 51″H.
JENS RISOM T 621 WALNUT BENCH-LOW TABLE | $2,195 Alongside from his notable chairs, Jens Risom is known for the design of the versatile T 621 bench-coffee table. It features his signature floating top design, as well as the luxurious use of high-quality walnut. This piece is built strong, so it can be used many ways: as a coffee table, bench or platform for companion furniture. Fully restored. Dimensions are 54″L x 21″D x 15″H.
SOLID CHERRY WILLETT DINING SET | $2,695 This solid cherry dining table and chairs made in the early 1960s by Willett Furniture Co. was built to last. So we revitalized it for the next generations of use. Starting with the table top, we refinished it to tease out the variegated wood tones. Next was rejuvenation of the table base and every chair. The table goes from compact to family-sized courtesy of two large leaves that drop to the sides when not needed. Plus there’s a 14″ external leaf. A pair of sturdy, tapered legs pulls out to support each leaf, then tuck away when not needed. There are six chairs, including two with arms – again all solid cherry. Includes a full set of table pads. Table length expands from 27″ with leaves down to 72″ with both leaves up and 86″ with the extra center leaf. Width is 44″ and height is 29″.
MID-CENTURY UPHOLSTERED BENCH | $895 The turned rock maple legs don’t say “modern” yet this re-imagined bench is every bit of the mid-century era. We rescued this piece because we were impressed with the solid build of the frame – and yes, because the legs have charm. We chose a graphic fabric with a designer green ombré pattern on an ivory background. We retained the original double pillow design, piping and button tufting on top. Dimensions are 37-1/2″L x 20″D x 19″H.
RONDO CHAIR BY JAN LUNDE KNUDSEN | $395 The timelessly modern Rondo chair was design by interior architect Jan Lunde Knudsen circa 1961 and manufactured by Karl Sørlie & Sønner in Sarpsborg, Norway. It is simultaneously minimalist and inviting, combining a simple polished steel frame with rounded seat and hoop backrest. Freshly upholstered in high-grade leatherette. Dimensions are 23″W x 17″D x 27-1/2″H to the top of the seatback.
SWEDISH MODERN STYLE TEAK SIDEBOARD | $3,295 Handsome teak sideboard circa 1960s with details reminiscent of designs by Nils Jonsson for Hugo Troeds (Sweden). There is a four-drawer stack down the middle, flanked on each side by generously size compartments with adjustable shelves. We’ve taken this piece through a thorough rejuvenation. It has an oiled finish with a darker teak hue. Dimensions are 67″L x 19-5/8″D x 31″H.
1960s LANE PERCEPTION TWIN BED | $295 The twin (or single) bed is scarce today, but it was the dominant frame size of the post-World War II era and into the 1960s. Even adult couples often had individual beds with a solo nightstand in between. This twin headboard/footboard combination is from Lane Furniture’s Perception collection. It features the signature woven walnut accent, heavily figured walnut expanse and American ash surround. This frame is freshly restored and just needs a readily available steel foundation to make it perfect for the cabin, in a kid’s room or as a daybed. The headboard is stamped on back with the manufacture date March 16, 1965. Headboard dimensions are 40-1/4″W x 36-1/4″H.
LANE COPENHAGEN UPRIGHT CEDAR CHEST | $795 This upright cedar chest is from Lane Furniture’s Copenhagen collection. It’s a rare early piece from that line made Dec. 7, 1955. Present are Copenhagen’s unique ferrules (the brass cuffs around the base of each leg), the soft edge overhang and combination of light and dark-toned woods. The cedar-lined storage chest opens on top, and there is a felt-lined drawer below. Dimensions are 29″W x 17″D x 31-3/4″H.
HOLTKOTTER ‘THE ILLUMINATOR’ FLOOR LAMP | $695 Light up your modern space with The Illuminator, a modern floor lamp from Holtkotter in Germany. It features four bulbs operated by two pull chain switches. One switch controls three bulbs around the perimeter of the shade. The other operates a single bulb with a vertical orientation for up-lighting. All sockets accept standard base bulbs, including LED bulbs. The base is made of nickel with a brushed satin finish, and it is height-adjustable. Shade diameter is at the base is 18-1/4″. In like-new condition.

Dimensions are 57”L x 13-1/2”D x 18”H.
MADE IN MINNESOTA WOOD BENCH | $2,195 Here’s another handcrafted original from our furniture-designing and making partner: a bench using South American-sourced andiroba wood.

Dimensions are 49″L x 15″D x 30″H to the top of the back and 18″H seat.
LANE RHYTHM COFFEE TABLE WITH DRAWER | $595 Classic early 1960s walnut coffee table from Lane Furniture’s popular Rhythm collection. This configuration is less commonly found: it has a square cabinet with a super-sized drawer perfect for stashing games, crafts or your favorite throw for sofa surfing. Made April 16, 1966 and freshly restored. Dimensions are 18″ square x 16″ high.
MADE IN MINNESOTA SURFBOARD COFFEE TABLE | $895 A brand new design from our furniture-making partner. This elliptical-shaped coffee table is handmade with a whitewashed solid cherry top and ebony-stained wood base. Dimensions are 54″L x 18″D c 16-1/4″H.
VINTAGE MODERN TEAK SEWING TABLE | $895 It’s hard to deny the charm of an accent table that was designed specifically with darning socks in mind. Or maybe knitting a pair. This vintage table from Brode Blindheim (Norway) is as charming as it is practical. The sturdy teak frame houses a slide-out drawer for sewing notions atop a slide-out woven basket for holding sewing, knitting, needlework or other textile projects. Fully restored frame. Dimensions are 23-3/4″W x 21-1/8″D x 20″H.
JENS RISOM MODEL C 120 WALNUT EASY CHAIR | $1,095 Model C 120 easy chair from American-Danish design icon Jens Risom.

We reupholstered it in a rich navy tweed that plays off the deep walnut stain.
MADE IN MINNESOTA WALNUT EASY CHAIR | $1,395 The latest chair design from our expert furniture-maker, handcrafted using solid walnut. Beautifully proportioned, powerfully built and always comfortable. The frame is 28″ at its widest x 30″ front to back x 32″ to the top of the back cushion.
OP-ART FABRIC PRINT SLIPPER CHAIR | $795 If chairs could talk, oh the stories they’d tell. This particular chair would spin a tale of being abandoned by the side of the road. Sturdy and shapely but otherwise plain, the kind of chair cars would whizz past – unnoticed, unloved. Until a kindly furniture aficionado rescued it. She introduced the chair to a 1960s vintage bedspread. It was vivid, bold and exciting, yet flat as a pancake with no shape. You see where this is going, right? Today the plain little chair and the flat but lively fabric have come together to create a truly one-of-a-kind piece of furniture. One that can no longer be overlooked. Chair dimensions are 23″W x 29″D x 34″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. 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.
DYRLUND TEAK DISPLAY CABINET | $1,495 Handsome display cabinet made in Denmark by Dyrlund and featuring top-notch materials, construction and finishes – including lots of teak solids.

RESTORED WALNUT TALLBOY CIRCA 1950s | $795 Before Scandinavian designs significantly influenced American furniture manufacturers, the sleek moderne style had its heyday. There are echoes of Art Deco and Machine Age in the look, and we still value them for their uncluttered modern profile. This tallboy chest of drawers (and a companion low chest shown below) is of that era. It features four larger-than-average drawers and integrated wood drawer pulls. Fully restored with a rich walnut finish. Dimensions are 32-1/4″W x 18-1/4″D x 48-1/4″H.
JENS RISOM 3-DRAWER CHEST – CUSTOM LEGS | $1,895 Tinkering with 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 Group R 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 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.

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.
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.
MADE IN MINNESOTA MODERN WRITING DESK | $1,095 Our Minnesota-based furniture-making partner is of Scandinavian descent, and he’s channeled that heritage into another original design. This handmade writing table has a strong Nordic vibe with the use of light woods – ash and maple – along with a simplicity of line and everyday utility. It features a tray-style top with upswept sides and a gentle scoop across the back. Dimensions are 42-1/2″L x 26-3/4″D x 30″H to desktop and 32″H to the top of the back.
RESTORED + REIMAGINED GUNLOCKE SOFA | $3,695 Gunlocke Furniture is well-known in mid-century circles for its powerfully built and often elegantly designed chairs. The company has been a mainstay of upper echelon office furniture for decades. That heritage is part of what makes this sofa so exciting. The frame is built to last, so we invested in a complete makeover with all new upholstery and restoration of the exposed walnut base. Dimensions are 81″L x 31-3/4″D x 30″H to the top of the back cushions.
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.
BILL STEPHENS MODEL 1315 CHAIR | $995 Iconic late 1960s/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 original Knoll upholstery is in exceptional condition.
THONET STYLE BENTWOOD ROCKING CHAIR | $345 Beautiful 1970s reproduction of the bentwood rocking chair made by Thonet with a design dating from the early 1900s. Just like the original, this chair has a rounded bamboo frame, an open bamboo hoop at the base of the back, and caned seat and seat back. It has a wood-burned “made in Poland” stamp in the frame.

ANTIQUE 2-DRAWER ASIAN CHEST | $485 Throw a little variety into your decor with a piece or two that shakes up the monotony of an all-modern aesthetic. This handsome two-drawer antique chest might do the trick. The design is still relatively simple – like the best of modern – but has some flourishes that set it apart. All wood construction with a black exterior finish, red lacquered drawer boxes, distinctive drawer pulls and a beveled top edge. Dimensions are 22-3/4″ square x 23″ high.
PENNSYLVANIA HOUSE SERVER-BAR CABINET | $595 This expandable serving cart from Pennsylvania House offers 1970-era styling with timeless utility.

Lighting, Art + Accessories
AFFILIATED CRAFTSMEN STUDIO POTTERY LAMPS | $895 PAIR Hand-thrown and hand-decorated pottery lamps from Affiliated Craftsmen, the renowned architectural pottery studio co-founded by Bob Kinzie. Each lamp has an impressed stamp near the base that confirms it as an Affiliated Craftsmen piece and also dates it to the early 1970s.
