Dizzy


I am totally in love with this Sergio Rodrigues Diz chair from Vintage and Modern Brazilian dealer Mercado Modern. Designed in 2002, it pays homage to many 20th century styles and would fit perfectly into the unique architecture of The Cool House, perhaps near the Michel Arnoult game table. The asking price is actually something of a bargain - they retail for almost double. Dreaming....

Objets d'Art et du D├ęsir

Some objects just speak to me:


Yes!



Definitely.


Maybe.


No!


Oh, please...



Now you're just toying with me, aren't you?.
Obviously your style and taste may vary! All collectible objects, desirable or not, and many others available on the Vintage and Modern website.

Vintage and Modern's Video Inspiration


Bill Indursky from Vintage and Modern shares his design inspiration, some new items from V & M and a story about Achille Castiglioni's favorite design - a pair of sunglasses made from 35mm film.
My favorite piece on V&M, if you asking, or better yet, buying, is a 1970s carpet by Edward Fields that will go perfectly in the great room. Thanks.

Art Glass


I'd never heard of New York based architectural glass designer Gariella Huseman until the Vintage and Modern email dropped into my inbox. That's unsurprising as her work is to the trade only, but she produces laminated glass coffee tables and mirrors that are as much works of art as functional pieces. Funky, modern square coffee table with multicolored swirls, $1800 via Vintage and Modern.

Window shopping on the web

I'm currently lusting after a couple of items I've seen on auction sites on the internets.
First this modelicious 1970s Pucci Rocker available on 1st dibs. I'm totally in love with it but I think it's just too much for this house, although it might go here.


On the other hand these classy Lithic Floor Lamps, also from the 70s at Vintage and Modern are totally modern and in keeping with the style of this house. They are still produced today by the original manufacturer, J. Robert Scott so I can keep them on my wish list for now.
