Last weekend myself and a friend enjoyed a fun jaunt on Queen West in Toronto, looking for funky cool modern furniture and stuff to show into our apartments. While i certainly got more out of the trip than he did (He prefers Queen East, it has a much more 50's retro selection of stores) it was a good way to spend an afternoon.
Not that I would have this in my place (well ok, maybe if my place was a loft), but I found the glass within glass design kind of appealing.
Need some bar chairs? Funky bright green lucite stools, not exactly my taste but a good way to punch up and funkify your booze area. My fat friends would break em.
Speaking of lucite, someone molded themselves this angular little piece of... what? Not sure, and no idea what purpose it serves but it was visually interesting to look at.
1 part salon hair dryer, 2 parts mod dining room hanging lamp. Who am I kidding, I actually really liked this. Only problem was that it was HUGE.
These looked like fun.. keep em as is, stick a flower in em. Would pop on a floating shelf on the wall.
Great 50's retro sunburst clock, great way to jazz up a smaller wall. For some reason, the starship Enterprise is beside it.. and missing a battery
I love this lamp. I mean I really love it. Ya'll know I have a lamp fetish, but this one was damn nice. I'm tempted to grab a couple for the living room, but I dunno how the red would play against the rest of the monochromatic theme goin now.. might punch it up if i get a complimentary area rug, might be tacky. I can't decide.
Note: the lampshade isn't pink, it's a solid orangy red. Stupid cellphone cam.
If not the previous lamp, then this is my next choice. Goes with anything, retro inspired but modern enough to be hip. I really enjoyed this one as well. Loves it.
I'm thinking this for a TV stand, saw it on a website.. the shape makes me moist
Ok, gayness complete. Any thoughts?
