I still can't believe what a haul I brought in last Saturday. Most of it has made its way up into the attic/master bedroom/mod cave until I get a chance to break out the antique finish restorer, but this little beauty is staying right here.
I must say, the Mid-Century Modern breakfast table was an elusive quarry, but with the help of Kristina and Michael at Rocket Century, I finally bagged one. And what a prize it is: a 36" Eames Aluminum Group by Herman Miller in white laminate.
It looks a million times better than the craftsman-style set that was a holdover from my grad school days. Wouldn't you say?
If I had my druthers, I'd have gotten the dark wood-grained laminate version or, in an ideal fantasy world, a Saarinen tulip table with a marble top. It'd go a bit better with the dark-stained cabinets and counter tops. Beggars can't be choosers though, can they?
Still, this table brings some much-needed MCM style to the kitchen, where it was seriously lacking. I can't wait to gussy it up with a set of chairs and some suitably modern decor.
