Preppy Pagoda Windows

Strange bedfellows.  Our June windows marry two of our favorite (if somewhat incongruous) styles, East Coast Prep and Asian Modern.  We've always loved the pagoda shape and decided to Pulitzer it up with preppy pink and green.  The side panels reference the simplicity of the Japanese flag.  The Asian Modern black lacquered chairs, in the style of James Mont, are by Century Furniture, c. 1970's.  $1,250.00 for the pair  SALE  $895.00 for the pair

A Few for the Road

We will be closed for vacation this week and reopening Wednesday, August 16th.  We will be checking emails daily and available by phone for immediate assistance at 416.407.1269.  We will be opening on the 16th with lots of new pieces in the shop, and thought we'd leave with a few additional markdowns.  Have a great week and check back for some posts during the week!

Harvey Probber Side Table

Harvey Probber was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1922 and began working as a designer immediately after graduating from high school.  He established his own design firm, Harvey Probber, Inc. in 1945 and soon became one of the leading modern designers in America.  Unlike many of his contemporaries, his approach to modernism tended to reject austerity and typical materials, and favor exotic woods, hand-rubbed finishes and luxurious fabrics in his upholstered pieces.  This can be seen in this handsome side table designed by Probber.  It has a Terrazo marble hexagonal top with inlaid patinated brass and three sculptural bleached mahogany legs.  17.25" h., 19" diam.  American, c. 1950's  SOLD


Kent Coffey Credenza

Great looking companion piece to the tall chest listed earlier.  Sleek, twelve drawer credenza in Vicuna Mahogany by Kent Coffey.  This photo shows off the finish and coloring more accurately than in the picture of the tall chest.  60" l., 19" d., 31" h.  American, c. 1950's  SOLD

Kent Coffey Tall Chest

Tall, blond and very sharp.  Unfortunately this handsome Vicuna Mahogany chest by Kent Coffey doesn't look nearly as good in photos as it does in real life.  The finish, graining and color are beautiful.  On the functional side, there are six ample drawers for storage.  40.5" w., 19" d., 43.5" h.  American, c. 1950's  $750.00  SALE  $550.00
