If The Form Fits, Get It!

I find period rooms can be a bit "unimaginative" at times or museum-like. An eclectic mix of good forms, in furniture and objects, can work regardless of when they were made and can create an interesting and comfortable environment. See my picks for rooms, furniture, art, and objects I consider to be great forms. Many of these items are available should you wish to acquire them. Message me on here.

I used to work at a gallery in New York that sold antiques mixed with 20th C. designed furniture. My boss would take consignments, some of them from Albert Hadley. One time Albert brought in a pair of Edward Wormley-designed "Captain" chairs. Ever since then I've always loved this chair. I found this one in a resale/consignment shop. I think this one has had the black stain removed and has been done in a greyish cerused/limed finish. Love it!

Dagobert Peche Cabinet 1919. Designed while at the Wiener Werkstätte. I believe these legs influenced the design on the legs of the Czech armchair shown in an earlier pin.

I have this cocktail table at our Sydney, Australia apartment. On 1stdibs the vendor attributes it to Raymond Subes. I've always thought it might be Maison Jansen.  It's painted iron, bronze with a black glass (vitrolite) top. What do you think?

I love these tables! James Mont with an antiqued silver leaf finish. I use these as bedside tables. So chic!

An extremely scarce pair of Mastercraft 3-legged ottomans, c.1960's/70's. I got these about 9 years ago. To this day, I've only ever seen a Mastercraft table and dining chairs listed on 1stdibs at BG Galleries with this leg. Most MasterCraft furniture I see is chinoiserie is style, and is either all brass or ebonized lacquered wood with brass details.
