It took several trips but we got them home. The set is more mod than what we usually go for but I love it. And who can beat free furniture? I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about the three pieces on the right?
Nathan, a friend from Flickr kindly researched the one on the left for me through the book 1000 Chairs and says this: The chair at left is by Sergio Mazza for Artemide. Here is the info from my book: "The stackable, single-material single-form 'Toga' chair was first shown at the 1969 Milan International Furniture Exhibition to wide acclaim.. It was manufactured in compression-molded fiberglass-reinforced polyester. No longer in production, the chair was initially produced in only orange and white and later in red and black."
From photos online, this chair was sleek and shiny when new. Looks like we've got some work cut out for us!
The pieces are really huge and made of fiberglass. They have seen many years and need a lot of clean-up and work but I think they'll be really cool on our patio. I'm thinking the other pieces might be from the sixties too but a Flickr friend showed me a similar couch in a photo from a mall built in the mid-seventies. The ladies that gave them to us were really awesome and said that they had bought them all on eBay years ago. At that time, they were told that they were all from the sixties and by some designer that they can't remember now. They said that they wanted to see them gone and were just sick of sweeping the water out of them after rain storms. And sure enough, first thing this morning...I was outside sweeping water out of those babies.
I've been unable to find the other three pieces online anywhere but do remember seeing them somewhere before. If you have any ideas, please let me know!
In other Craigslist news, if anyone is in the Nashville area and needs some slammin' vintage double ovens, you HAVE to get these!
Sweet, huh? One of my favorite colors for appliances. The Seller is letting them go for a super cheap $150. or best offer.
I'd have those in a heartbeat if our kitchen were set up for wall ovens. Also, check out this single wall oven in another beautiful shade!
If you're interested, all the photos link back to the sales ads. Click on towards happiness! Disclaimer: And if you do, be sure and have them checked out by a pro. I'm only a professional in the "Ooh! Cute!" department.
Until next time,
