Magnificent Mid-Century!

Since Gabriel and I just moved into our first house this year we have run up against a problem we never had before: how to furnish a place that is really ours! We want to be eco-friendly of course, so choosing vintage pieces seemed natural. The house was built in the early 70's, but it has a sort of "Atomic Ranch" feel so we decided to go with that era and aesthetic.  So here, for your viewing pleasure, is our first find, a beautiful Danish modern chair in mint vintage condition! It was built in the late 50's or early 60's and still has the original upholstery. And it really is Danish, having only arrived in this country a few weeks ago. 

We were instantly in love with it, but a question remained. 
Would our house mates approve?

Fortunately, the answer is yes. Cooper Cat has adopted the new/old chair as his favorite lounging spot, leaving us free to begin searching for a matching side table...


  1. Welcome to the blogosphere. What fun! I saw your tweet on Twitter. Funny, because I haven't been there much, but there you were :) I wonder if your wonderful pix will encourage me to get more personal on my "personal" blog. As it turns out it's not all that personal ;) I'm enjoying your chair and your cat. You may have been the first person to comment on my blog about a century ago. It was a "nice rockfish" photo from the aquarium in Newport, Oregon. See you around!

  2. oooooh i love mid century modern danish furniture! we have a few pieces ourselves.

  3. Very cute. I love taking the time to search for unique pieces. You find that they all come together and coordinate well.!

  4. The chair is lovely--Cooper Cat says you made a great choice!!

  5. Thanks everyone! I told Cooper he has some fans now. He seems to think that is just the way things should go ;)
