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.

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.

Ok...normally I wouldn't buy a Murano glass clown. In fact, to call this a clown is insulting and incorrect! I found this 15"example, believe it or not, on eBay. They didn't know what they had...neither did I until I did some research. I believe it's Fulvio Bianconi for Venini from the Commedia dell 'arte series. The quality of the workmanship is superb. This is particularly unusual and scarce because of the confetti colored ball. I've only ever seen one documented with an all white ball.

A recent acquisition.... Love the simplicity of these late, and scarce, '60's Italian enamel & silver plated copper plates by Gallinaro Oggettistica (est.1962-1970's) by Celeste Gallinaro. I've only ever seen 7 ¼" diameter ones. These are 10 ½" in diameter.  The circular motif on the edge of the blue plate is very reminiscent of the Charles Rennie MacIntosh rose.

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!
