I wanted to let you know about two great sales we have going on right now.  First of all, if you’ve been saving up for an iconic modern classic from Knoll, now’s the time to bust open that piggy bank. Knoll is on sale from September 20-October 1st, 2013.

Personally, I’ve got my eye on George Nakashima Straight Chairs:

and a Noguchi Cyclone Table:

I love the way it looks with Eero Saarinen’s Executive Chairs; they aren’t just for Mad Men-ish offices anymore. In fact, I have one in my own bedroom.

Speaking of offices we also have another iconic mid-century modern brand on sale. Selected items from Steelcase’s Turnstone collection are also up to 15% off right now. Steelcase is great for the office, the playroom, the living room, the family room and the bedroom.

This is the Steelcase Turnstone Jenny Coffee Table. Its shape is modern, yet it also has a contemporary sensibility. It’s a box that floats, and the wood grain adds warmth to any room, whether you’re a minimalist or a new traditionalist. The reason I love it so much is that you can keep that top cleared off; the bottom has plenty of room for your remotes, coffee table books, magazines, laptop, pet toys and whatever else tends to accumulate around the house.

This is the Steelcase Turnstone Big Lamp. I love the proportions; the shade is a narrow band that gets its heft from the black color, while the white stand is sturdy yet delicate. It has a clean look that will inspire you to keep those nightstands or your desk neat and organized.

Flickr Faves on Fridays, Last One


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

Oh good, thanks so much to those who weighed in at the one-at-a-time vs. all-in-one flickr favorites posting. I’m glad you are liking them one at a time, because I love doing them this way. Well, I fell into flickr member soulellis’s sets today and I’m still stuck in there, I can’t get out. It’s funny to track how you get to a place. Today  went something like this – I decided I wanted to do an ideabook on Houzz about big slabs of trees in furnishings, as I noticed a few choice pieces on the Modern Atlanta Tour last weekend. I could not think of George Nakashima’s name (I kept googling “George Nagasaki” and getting a lot of WWII search results) to save my life, so I twittered SallyTV and of course she set me straight from these clues I gave her:


Thank you Sally! Then I started futzing around and searching for George Nakashima on flickr, and I found souldellis’s George Nakashima Studio set. WOW! I’m only half way through checking out that set, but thought I’d share with you. There are many more pictures here.

*By the way, I had to cut and paste this twitter exchange together – I wish twitter would put things in order. Sometimes people respond to me and I’ve already forgotten what the heck I was talking about in the first place. Am I missing some better way to keep it all straight or figure out which tweet people are replying to? I’m still a twitter nitwit!
