Mart Stam Cantilever Armchair - SOLD

We have a beautiful pair of vintage Mart Stam cantilever armchairs that we are selling individually.  The polished tubular steel chair frames have a caramel-colored leather seat and back with padded arms.  The leather was replaced 2 years ago.   It is the same color as the original leather.  The frames are in great condition, with some areas of patina.  Each chair measures: 24"W x 24"D x 31 1/2"H. Mart Stam was a famous Dutch architect, urban planner, and furniture designer.  His  steel-tubing chair designs were extremely popular, and they influenced new designs by Mies Van der Rohe, Eileen Gray, and Marcel Breuer.  This Cantilever Armchair design was introduced in 1926.

Commissioned Kent Coffey Highboy - SOLD

This Kent Coffey Perspecta highboy is our latest commission.  Phil and I love the Perspecta line.  A Blue Lamb client purchased this piece, and asked us to redesign and refinish it.  We have been very pleased with the white, wood, gray combo, so we painted the top drawer fronts Benjamin Moore's Chelsea Gray, and the outer "wrap" White Dove.   We also refinished the bottom drawer fronts and pulls.

 Here is a before photo of this piece:

Striped Thayer Coggin Coffee Table - SOLD

This low-profile vintage coffee table is stamped Thayer Coggin.  We suspect it was designed in the 1960s by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin.  Baughman was a pioneer in modern design.  He was one of the leading modern furniture designers of the second half of the 20th century.  From 1953 to 2003, Thayer Coggin and Milo Baughman collaborated on designs and production techniques that came to define the mid-century modern era of American residential furniture.  This was a true rehab project. We fully refinished the table and then introducing the white painted stripe pattern over the stained wood.  For added durability, we applied multiple coats of clear polyurethane over the stripe pattern.  This table measures: 30" W x 30"D x 15"H.
