Joel and I are always on the hunt for really great pieces for the home! We’ve made some connections with folks where we live that have the scoop of where to find some pretty amazing finds!
We recently met up with an artist that Joel has known for 9 years. He creates beautiful paintings and shares the love and appreciation of mid century design furniture.Years ago he use to deliver paint out in rural areas, where he would often see mid century furniture just sitting in people’s yards, discarded from nearby air force and military bases. That’s when he started collecting Eames, Bertoia and many others! And that’s how we came across our fabulous Bertoia Side Char!
I think it’s safe to say we have a slight addiction to chairs. I love the modern and simple design of this Bertoia, it’s even comfortable! You just can’t pass up opportunities like this, when you have an appreciation for these designs you snag them when you can.
The best part is, we didn’t have to pay hundreds of dollars for it. We got it for a fabulous deal and that’s how we like to roll! Because we live in an area where mid century furniture isn’t really desirable, there’s still lots to pick from (if you know where to look) and usually a lot cheaper. In LA, it’s slim to none and always SO expensive!
It’s fun to look back and see how our style has changed over the years. But I have great confidence that pieces like this will remain desirable for years to come! It’s going to be in our home for a while I imagine.
Do you have a small collection building that you just can’t say no to?
