It is a limited edition, which is perhaps part of the reason why the 1950s Gianfranco Frattini-designed Albero bookcase comes at such a price. Of course, the other reason is that this is a very well made piece of furniture... Continue reading

We have featured some original 1960s designs from this maker, but we think the Cool Chandelier by Frandsen is actually a contemporary design. Not that you would think that by looking at it. This looks every bit the hip modernist... Continue reading

A lovely piece that could easily pass for a period original - this midcentury-style Pearson bar cabinet at Swoon Editions. A great retro design, it is probably adaptable enough to be used for various storage uses. But if you need... Continue reading

Not your average mid-20th century-inspired piece, which is perhaps why we love this Mid Century Leather Sofa at Rose & Grey so much. A new design, but looking every bit the vintage piece, this is a two-seater sofa with pared... Continue reading

This is such a good looking thing. In fact, the Finn sofabed at Aflair is just perfect for a midcentury or Scandinavian-inspired room. If you have both of those influences going on, even better! Regardless of the setting though, this... Continue reading
