      What is that arm chair called? I always loved those, and can't find a reference to them. I keep my eye out at garage sales, etc, but no luck yet.

      Congrats. Let me know if you need any feedback on interior design or layout. It's too bad we're not coming to LV this year otherwise I'd swing by with a bottle of champagne.

      I *love* MCM. Things like the last 2 pics above soothe my soul. "Traditional", "colonial" and developer McHouses are like a cheese grater to my soul.

      I wanted to bump this. I have always wanted to get a mcm. My wife and I are looking to hopefully get one within the next year, so more inspiring pics would be awsome

      yea that sucked big time. We just got started "retrovating" our kitchen last week. Here's a shot of the semi finished product:


      going mid-century one room at a time.

      since this thread is back from the dead I'll throw up an updated pic.





      We've also done a bit of work in the living room as far as eradicating the ikea/new furniture and going back to vintage stuff. The only things new in the living room now are the Mac and our 52" TV on the wall.



      this living room shot is actually dated too. We have a cool as Wall Unit full of vintage knick-knacks and the two white shelves have been taken over by my wife's new obsession with little ceramic things like deer and owls. Plus 2 AWESOME pictures of cats we got at the flea market for a Buck, yup, 2 for a dollar.



      and every Vintage house needs an Aluminum tree.

      thanks, it was shipped from Oklahoma to NJ. I won it on eBay Christmas eve a couple years back for $77. Let's just say it cost significantly more than that to ship it. I'm still looking for a Frigidaire range hood to go between the top of the stove and the cabinet, it's designed to have one.

      Watch out, there are a ton of knockoffs out there, some decent but most are crappy.
      There are only two manufactors that make this chair and thats Herman Miller USA
      and Vitra EURO. The two of them places the name (Eames) on the chair. Look for that when you go looking.
