I loved studying furniture styles in college. Of all of the styles, I somehow have been attracted to Mid Century Modern. I sometimes think it is a little how I describe my own self: classic, somewhat antique yet modern. This was indeed the style that reigned when I was a little girl although I don't really have vivid memories of furniture.
I do remember my mother's first sofa in the home my Dad built in the 50's. It was an aqua modern, clean lines sectional sofa.
I have found some super classic pieces at a steal occasionally. I have also found a warehouse FULL of this style at top dollar prices! MCM is actually the craze in the design world with many clients and designers.
This is a Mid Century Modern desk I purchased at a Goodwill for 39.99, used for 2 years and sold for $250. It was, I think, a Flanders and had the name in the drawer on the side.
This dresser I found on the side of the road in my sister-in-law's neighborhood. Just happened to be there on our way from a get together. Still using it until I find something I like better.
Now, drum roll...here is my little find this week. I have wanted a stool in my kitchen. This is surprisingly comfy and it will be an easy and inexpensive fix to recover and refresh the wood.
The price was $14.99 but blue tags had a 30% off on the day I purchased.
Now, I get really excited when I buy a piece like this for only ten bucks, do my research and find I indeed got a great deal. Here are a few comparable items on ebay:
