A Significant Find

As I have educated myself about the history of modern design over the last 4 years one of the pieces of lighting that has caught my attention is the Artichoke Lamp by Poul Henningsen for Louis Poulsen.  Poul Henningsen was the preeminent Danish lighting designer of the modernist era.  Many of his designs are still in production by Louis Poulsen.  Recently I was very fortunate to find one while out looking for modern furnishings.  Unfortunately the one I found is just the shade of the artichoke lamp.  It does not have the original light fixture but I was able to adapt my own lighting fixture without detracting too much from the original design

Shopping Spree

This week we bought more inventory than any other week this year!  We also finished a few projects too.  Here are just a few pieces that we got.  More pieces will be revealed soon.

One exciting score this weekend was an entire walnut Dillingham bedroom set including highboy & lowboy dressers, a mirror, pair of night stands, mirror, and king headboard.  We also bought a matching dining set and bar stool which are being refinished.

Our primary project this weekend was reupholstering this daybed.

We chose to upholster it in a much softer color as well as adding an inch of padding and shorter legs.

Lastly, my favorite find of the weekend was this huge glass & walnut coffee table designed by Adrian Pearsall for Craft Associates.
