Rare thrift find – Dansk mill

01.12.13 | Permalink | 5 Comments

I love going to thrift stores. You never know what you might find. I’ve found lots or random Dansk, Heath, Krenit, many other vintage pieces, and a guitar amp. I’ve been able to sell and enjoy much of what I’ve purchased. But nothing that’s blown my mind. And this is exactly what happened with […]

Dansk in modern marketing

01.07.13 | Permalink | 1 Comment

I got home today to a new DWR and CB2 catalog.  Great day – my house is still somewhat new so I’m always on the lookout for the right furniture. Right there on the cover of DWR – to follow up last month’s amazing station wagon – was a smooth flamestone coffee cup.  The same […]


My New Danish Modern Chair

When I saw the posting on our neighborhood email list that there was a “Free Mid-Century Chair” sitting in my neighbor’s driveway, I turned off to stove, told my wife to watch the kid, and jumped in the car.  What I found was a big-ass mauve upholstered chair with what looked like teak legs. I didn’t […]


Amazing cover on the DWR Holiday catalog

I don’t know about you, but it’s not even Thanksgiving and I’ve gotten dozens of holiday catalogs in the mail. But when I got the new DWR catalog, the cover photo jumped straight into my cerebral cortex’s vintage station wagon and mid-century architecture pleasure center. Wow, what an amazing shot. The Egg chair on top […]

Dansk in Dwell

The cover story of the most recent issue of Dwell Magazine is a profile of Toronto collector Dr. Kenneth Montague. It has some great photos of his penthouse, which features an amazing roof deck, a series of Calder prints, and – yes – Dansk teak. The photos feature many Dansk pieces, including a glimpse of a […]


Eames Shells Restored for Outdoors

After moving into my new home, I began to search for some seating for my back patio. It had to look great because it’s only separated from my living room by a wall of glass. And, it couldn’t be upholstered because it will be covered with pine needles in the fall and seed pods in […]

Unusual Mark on Bowl

04.01.12 | Permalink | 5 Comments

I found this vintage Quistgaard bowl at a local shop and it has a somewhat unusual mark.  Not sure if I’ve seen the bowl before, or if I have seen this mark before. Let me know in the comments if I’m just crazy after seeing too many teak bowls.    


My New House

03.26.12 | Permalink | 2 Comments

One of the reasons I haven’t posted much over the last few months is that my family moved.  We packed up our home and moved south down the Penninsula. It was a major job – and as you can imagine – it took a lot of time. The new house is still not fully together […]
