furniture :: midcentury cool

I love the sleek lines of midcentury modern furniture and Blackbird Modern has some cool pieces that look so ultra modern, you'd think they came right off the assembly line today. But nope, these wonderfully funky pieces are over 50 years old, manufactured in the 50's and 60's when design saavy was at the height of hip-ness!



Norman Cherner Chairs manufactured by Plycraft, 2 arm chairs and 2 side chairs. Paper label on 1 chair, stamped July 11, 1964





















A Brass and Mosaic Coffee Table attributed to Paul McCobb











Very Cool Gerald Thurston Lightolier Floor Lamp




A Frederick Weinberg Clock






I have to say it, the 50's and 60's were JUST COOL!

Thats some pretty cool stuff. I imagine the prices are probably out of reach? A great site for affordable modern is http://www.njmod.com.
