Mid-Century Modern Find!

I want to talk about blog jealousy and lay it out for all to see because - as they say - we are only as sick as our secrets.

I'm pretty sick.

BLOG JEALOUSY TEST
Question #1: Name three blogs you love to read and hate to read. You would never delete them from your RSS feed because their content is magically delicious, but gawd do they agitate the little green monster.
TEST RESULTS
If you answered the question, you have blog jealousy. Maybe they have an amazing skill? Or you want their couch so badly it makes you want to kick yourself in the golden palace? Or maybe their hunting instinct is so sharp they could find a mid-century modern treasure in Duluth for $2.......or a mid-century modern china cupboard/bar for $100 in western Massachusetts.

Dear gentle reader. Don't hate. Be a little jealous, yes, but don't hate.

  1. Dear HH, not only am I envious of this find, but I want your floors. How they boards form those lap joints in the corners? It's downright near herringbone (which would be my dream hardwood floor). Brava for finding a home with that detail.

  3. You find the perfect fit for your home and it's always beautiful and classic. Great find and I'm not a jealous person, but I do have a tiny bit of green monster going on...but it's Christmas so I'll be good!

  4. Soo green with envy right now. That a great deal and gorrrrgeous too! This is an awesome piece! I wish I can fit one of these in my dining room. My future (very near) mid century piece purchase is the eiffel dining chairs with dowel legs. Have your seen them? TDF!!! To. Die. For. I'll have to blog about it when I get mine and risk the fact that people will be jealous of me. LOL. I kid, I kid...

  7. What a meanie :-) However, I'm having wood floors put in upstairs in 2012, and now I have that nifty picture to go by. Is that oak? Why the color variations, was it patched with wood from a closet?

  11. Hi Karen Anne! Our dining room floor is herringboned oak on the outside and shitty wide pine in the center. Back in the days of y'ore, it was a common technique to put cheap-ass wood in the center of a room where a rug would supposedly cover it.

  16. Just bought the same hutch from an east coast thrift store...it needs some cleaning but at $65.00 I am not complaining at all. Would like to know if you know who made it (no markings that I can tell).
