|MID CENTURY FINDS AT H.P.F.M.|
|Remember our new bar cart? This coffee table, with its heavy brass, reminds me of it. I've been kicking around ideas for brass/glass tables for a while and this one is a huge inspiration for me!|
I've been to HPFM for several years now, and I usually spend most of my time in the main building, which is where the best stuff is. This year I ventured off and found, in another building, in the darkest corner, away from the crowds....the "antique market".
The antique market, as the name would suggest, is a showing of mostly local (east coast) antique dealers...some were more mom & pop, some were quite sophisticated collectors, and a few were dealing in Mid Century Modern. Oh my!
I took some pics for you, which are not as clear as I would have liked due to the darkness of the building. I'll try to explain what you are seeing...
|I couldn't get over the beauty of this grass green love seat against the orange walls! Notice the danish modern magazine stand?....|
|Here it is again. This I love.|
|Love the Mary Blair quality of the horse and rider. Does this remind you of the illustrations in Sleeping Beauty?|
|B. and I have been looking for the perfect tension lamp. This one isn't it, but still....|
|Love a good corner piece...not certain about the fancy metal work, but I do admire the doors and hardware.|
|This piece was incredible. Difficult to tell in the photo, but this curves away from the wall.|
|I especially love the painting that leaning on the wall above this piece.|
|I thought the prices were rather steep for MCM, but that's to be expected at market.|
|This killed me! Two kidney (or yin/yang) shaped brass/glass tables. Can you see the one in the foreground? Used together, or on either side of a sofa, these are so Hollywood glam!|
|Love this pair of chairs, the upholstery was in perfect condition.|
|Clunky, and I really don't like the fabric, but I can think of a million ways to make this better. Inspiration!|
|Love this bright green!|
I'll be posting more pics (not MCM "antiques") later in the week.
Did anyone else go to market? What inspired you the most?
Have a beautiful day.
