      As do I. It is in immaculate shape too. I even got all the fitted protective table mats and leaves. The buffet has two glass sliding doors up top.

      Your post is worthless without pictures.

      Berry I absolutely love the gang seats, they have them all over the Oakland airport and I make it a point sit in them everytime I'm out there.

      It's hard to believe that's a '52 design. Think of ho ugly cars were in '52. Big and bulbous is all I remember.

      SERIOUSLY considering getting a piece like this in my half sleeve:


      the wife isn't super sold on it yet, I do appreciate her feedback on my ink, so I have some work to do. I was also considering a technical drawing of the chair, like one of those line drawings with the pieces exploded. I'm working with a small(ish) space so I'm restricted on the size.

      sure, why not? almost all of my tattoos have meaning for me, either a time in my life or something I want to remember.

      I have one for each of my grandfathers to remember them, I've decided my left half sleeve is going to be pieces for each one of my family members.

      My right arm is for times in my life and my hobbies. I have a diamond inside of a horseshoe to commemorate my wedding. A vintage TLR camera, I'm a photographer. a crow drinking a bottle of hooch, got it at my bachelor party.

      My love of design goes back to about middle-school and I'm at a point in my life where I have honed in exactly what I like: Mid-Century/Danish design. A lot of people get tattoos for the sake of getting them without any real meaning or thought behind them. What's wrong with dedicating a piece to a timeless design that I have been fond of for years?

      Found this beauty today at an antique mall. Bent plywood veneers. Looked to be Teak or maybe Walnut with a stain.



      Went home with this. Marked Lewis '74. Not exactly MCM, but along those lines.

      Those are to keep the bottles from slipping through the openings as the rack is on an angle for proper wine storage.

      The other pegs are to give it stability, I think.

      funny story, this chair sat around for months. I decided I was going to break it down to refurb it. I go out and get a can of high gloss black oil paint and start sanding. No more than an hour in I get an email from a kid who wants to buy it. So, it left in pieces and I got a pile of $20s in my pocket.

      Another auction coming up soon, hopefully I can do good this time around again, it's so hit or miss.

      I know we talked about the Eames Lounge Chair, but how about the DCW? I love the design; anyone ever sat in one and care to comment on the comfort? (DCW being the dining room chair variant, not to be confused with the LCW)

      I love that chair generally and find that the LCW is easy to sit in, but never sat in the DCW let alone seen one. My wife thinks they all look like pre-school chairs so she doesn't take them serious. Unfortunately besides the kids room I could never convince the wife to agree to sit one of these in any other room in the house.

      I own a DCW that I use as a desk chair.
      Very comfortable despite no padded surface. The flexible rubber grommets between the back rest and the support provide enough movement. Ergonomically, the chair is perfect for me. I'm 5-10 and 150lbs.

      On another note, I picked up an Eames Lounger and Ottoman last week. Love it!

      Cool, good to know. I actually stopped by Design Within Reach yesterday to check out the Eames stuff. They didn't have a DCW, but they did have an LCW. Super comfy. Sat in the Lounge chair. Sales guy laughed at me when I wouldn't put my feet up on the Ottoman - that's what it's there for, he told me (so I did). Man, what a great chair/work of art. Too bad I don't have $6,000.00 burning a hole in my pocket...
