What I Found: Dec. 8th

Half of doing well at a pick is timing.   This week I had very good timing.   Below are just a few of the items I picked up from one sale Friday morning.

Some of the artwork I might be keeping so I'm trying it on for size.  Our weather has been cold and rainy most of the weekend so everything is still hanging out in the garage... I tried to style them a little for you, but well for the most part my photos this week are crap and I can't figure out the lighting in the house either.   One day. 

I don't think this photo captures how very big this abstract oil painting is.   Neither me or my husband could fit it in our cars. He ended up walking it home about 1 mile.  Thank goodness this sale was in our neighborhood and that they lived at the top of the hill, and us at the bottom.   He's a good man.

This is an original serigraph by Victor Vasarely - considered to be the leader of the Op-Art movement. Unfortunately there is a little water damage to the lower right corner which has caused the paper to wave a little.  There is also a small puncture in the center of the piece.   Im going to guess these 2 flaws destroy any value it once held. 

I love the shape of this mid century chair and it's found a nice home for now in the boys room.

Our newest Eames style lounge chair.  We've already got a brown one in the living room and a camel colored one you'll see poking out a few photos down.  Time to make some decisions and let one or two go.

My vintage luggage hoard continues.   Luckily I found this cheerful Steelcase swivel chair so i'll be able to fill a room with all the luggage and spin around to my hearts content.  I also picked up that square mid century table holding the luggage.  It is teak and much nicer than the above photo implies.

This is where I just got lazy.   What I am trying to show you is the beautiful and very long Lane Coffee table full of all the smalls I picked up, including some more pieces of the Midwinter Sun plate set.   There are also a few more pieces of art behind the Vasarely that you can't see.  Oh and a white feather Christmas tree, but that is already inside by the fireplace.
