As Found @ Liz O’Brien

August 5, 2010

My As Found blog posts are like taking you shopping with me, virtually of course.  As I’m browsing some of my favorite websites for special ieces of furniture and accessories for clients, I think “oh cool, everyone would love these too” and I want to share some of those things with you.  Today I wanted everything from the Liz O’Brien showroom… check it out and then check her out at www.lizobrien.comIt really doesn’t get more mid-century than this bookcase/shelving system in walnut.  Consisting of four upright supports with shelves, drawers and cabinet sections this was the “built-in” of the 50’s and 60’s.  Today people want true built-ins with baseboard wrapped bases and crown mouldings but I have to say I think this system is so sexy but practical and even in a mid to dark stain, light and fresh.  Redundant to say I want one? Dimensions: 80 1/2H x 106W x 17D

After Frances Elkins, this group of six loop chairs, four side-chairs and two armchairs, in ivory painted wood with Mongolia lamb seats are pretty cool too.  The shag seats add an element of 70’s porn to a chair that could go a bit to precious.  Maybe that says something about the chair, if it can go retro 70’s and it could pair with chintz then it’s a pretty versatile chair. Dimensions: 37.75H x 27W x 22.5D inches (Armchair); 37.5H x 19.75W x 20.75D inches (Side-chair).

This pair of FAB cerused and ebonized oak bedside tables are signed James Mont (10902 – 1978).  I love the design of these too, so Art Deco with the single drawer pull and the cerused oak is so right now, who knew? … these are dated 1940!  Dimensions: 21.25W x 18.25D x 29H (inches).
