FRESH + FEATURED
SCULPTED EASY CHAIR DESIGNED & MADE IN MINNESOTA | $1,195 The striking and original design for this mid-century inspired easy chair comes from a Minnesota maker whose work we feature regularly. This is an all-new design, with the frame made of solid African sapele. It’s not only beautiful, it’s well-engineered for comfort and durability. The cushions are upholstered in a gray on yellow geometric fabric.
HIBRITEN DINING SET WITH 6 CHAIRS | $1,795 SET Commanding walnut dining set made by Hibriten Chair Co. in the 1960s. The set includes a dining table with two expansion leaves plus six chairs. The walnut table measures 64″L x 42″D x 29″H and comes with two 20″ expansion leaves. When fully extended, it can seat 10 comfortably. It has the original lacquered finish in excellent condition. The chairs are matched to the table, and the set includes four standard and two armchairs.
PULASKI ‘OCEANIC’ QUEEN HEADBOARD | $645 Sweet – and probably vivid – dreams are made of this. It’s a headboard from the Oceanic collection made by Pulaski Furniture Corporation in the 1960s. It features three sculpted resin panels mounted on a solid wood frame. The vertical orientation of the panels add drama and height. The frame is fully restored and the panels underwent a light rejuvenation. This piece can accommodate a queen bed or a full bed. Dimensions are 60″L x 3-3/4″D x 47-3/4″H. Height from floor to the bottom rail is 21-1/2″.
C. JERE SIDEWALK CAFE WALL SCULPTURE | $465 It’s springtime in Paris (or Rome or Vienna) all year long with this 1970s vintage wall sculpture by C. Jere. This sidewalk cafe scene is a Jere classic, with shimmering gold and copper highlights. Dimensions are 46″L x 7″D x 21″H.
TWO-TIER RETRO RECORD CABINET | $395 Your LPs deserve nothing but the best, so we gave this 1950s vintage cabinet a major overhaul to create a styling place to park them. Features a handsome book-matched exterior, atomic door handles, and two levels of segmented storage. Dimensions are 27-5/8″W x 15-5/8″D x 34″H.
MID-CENTURY RECORD CABINET | $245 It’s compact and maybe a bit on the unassuming side, but this little cabinet is built strong. For more than 50 years it housed a couple hundred LPs on two perfectly proportioned shelves. We added a pair of Danish teak handles to dress it up…just a little. Dimensions are 26″W x 15″D x 34″H.
VINTAGE MODERN 9-DRAWER DRESSER IN NATURAL MAPLE | $895 Sometimes we find an exceptional piece of furniture that needs more to be reimagined than simply restored. This solid maple dresser was originally finished in a toned lacquer, applied with the intention of masking naturally occurring variations in the wood. When it came time to revitalize it, we used a clear coat finish to embrace and elevate the beauty of the maple and all its natural characteristics. There are signs of spalting in the wood and variety in the grain patterns. It’s now a truly natural beauty. Dimensions are 56-1/2″L x 19-5/8″D x 32-1/2″H.
CEDAR-LINED BLANKET CHEST CIRCA 1967 | $345 Lane Furniture chest made in 1967 features a walnut exterior, cedar lining (to battle those pesky moths) and a cantilevered shelf.

Shown with an authentic DCM chair designed by Charles and Ray Eames and made by Herman Miller | $285
VINTAGE BELART SCULPTURAL MIRROR-SHELF | $445 Is it a shelf? A mirror? A sculpture? It’s all three in our humble opinion. Vintage Belart wall-mount mirror made in Minnesota using American walnut. Designed to hang horizontally, but it would look every bit as awesome hung vertically. Dimensions are 54”L x 5”D x 20-1/2”H.
RARE VAN KEPPEL-GREEN INDOOR-OUTDOOR LOUNGE SET | $1,495 Rare six-piece set designed by Hendrik Van Keppel and Taylor Green, pioneers in the creation of an indoor-outdoor California modernist furniture aesthetic. The furniture frames are made of black-lacquered iron rod, and the tables have a wood slat under-structure. The seats, arms and tabletops are woven rattan, which have mellowed over the years to a soft amber patina. All pieces are in excellent condition, with only minor loss of rattan in places. The set includes an arm chair, a modular three-piece settee (two single-arm and one armless seat), a coffee table and an accent table. Offered only as a set.
