Well, it's Christmas Eve and we've decided to close early, so we can be with friends and family. Ethel will be closed December 25th, 26th and 27th and we'll be back December 28th.
We just got in the Winter 2010/11 issue of Modernism Magazine, just in time for Christmas! With feature articles on Richard Neutra in Europe, the Finn Juhl revival, fabulous Fifties fabrics and collecting vintage jewellery (a favourite pastime of Ethel's), this magazine makes for a great read while drinking eggnog by the fire, or a hostess gift for the modernista in your life.
Check out this late 60’s custom Spanner dining table with 11 chairs.
As some of you may remember, we had an early Ruspan dining set in the store back in the spring (see the “Spanner in the Store” post under April 2010 on the right) but you may not know that after those early lines, Spanner Products went on to do more Scandinavian inspired designs. This table is 8 feet long, features a racetrack top with additional glass top for a wider width and length, and the 11 chairs are in fantastic condition. The table is priced at $495 and the chairs are $150 each or $1000 for the set.
This buffet came with the Spanner set, but we suspect it’s a custom job and not a Spanner piece.It’s 7 1/2’ long and features sliding doors and four pull out drawers behind the middle drawer. It’s priced at $895 and would be perfect for holding all your vintage dishes!
UPDATE: One chair and ottoman has sold...one chair left
UPDATE: Second chair has sold!
UPDATE: Lounge chair has sold
If you’re just in the market for a little Christmas cheer, then pick up a handmade ceramic ornament from JoyPottery.
Priced at $16 each, these are a great addition to your Christmas tree or as a hostess gift. Give the gift of handmade!
See you at the store!
UPDATE: It's Saturday December 18th and we're down to 5 buttons. Get 'em while they're hot!
Ethel completely understands. Having a hectic holiday schedule herself, she knows what it’s like to have company coming with not enough room. So she’s helping out by having a little pre-Christmas sale on some furniture staples that will come in handy.
If you’re planning a dinner party or having the in-laws over for the first time and you still only have a door on trestles for a dining table, then you need this gorgeous six seater teak set.
The table is 48” in diameter and with the 18” wide leaf, you have enough room for everyone. Originally priced at $1350, we’re letting it go at $995.
UPDATE: Dining set has sold!
If you have overnight guests and the inflatable camping mattress just won’t do, then how about this lovely teak double bed?
Since it’s a slat frame, you don’t need a box spring and since it’s a double, it’ll fit in your cosy spare room. It’s classic Danish “knock down” style, meaning it’s easy to disassemble and reassemble, so even if you have a small house with narrow stairways, you’ll have no problem getting this home.
Originally priced at $950, it’s on sale for $600.
UPDATE: Bed has sold!
If you’re having a Christmas cocktail party but nowhere to put snacks and drinks, or your tired feet at the end of the night, then you need this vintage 70’s Danish coffee table.
With a fabulous 70‘s custom tile top you don’t have to worry about drink rings on your teak and you can put out hot dishes without worry of scorch marks. Originally priced at $495, it’s yours for $300.
There’s a few more lovely pieces for sale in the store so come on by and buy your home a Christmas present!
See you at the store!
Check it out and tell her Ethel says hi!
