Beautiful pair of chairs made in France, in the 1960s. The structure, made of walnut, is very elegant and reminiscent of Art Deco current. The front legs, cone-shaped, have brass clogs. The chairs were re-upholstered in the spirit of the period and are in excellent condition.
Coffee table made in Norway, late 60s. The counter-top is made of teak; the legs are made of stainless steel with hard plastic clogs. The counter-top edges are cut inwards giving this piece a light non-intrusive look. The legs are not plain, but made of three thin rods. The minimalist shape, the dialogue between wood and stainless steel, the curved edges, the line of the counter-top, all of this make this table a leading exponent of Scandinavian Modern style.

Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted coffee beans, which are the seeds of berries from the Coffea plant. The genus Coffea is native to tropical Africa, and Madagascar, the Comoros, Mauritius and Réunion in the Indian Ocean. The plant was exported from Africa to countries around the world and coffee plants are now cultivated in over 70 countries, primarily in the equatorial regions of the Americas, Southeast Asia, India, and Africa. The two most commonly grown are the highly regarded arabica, and the less sophisticated but stronger and more hardy robusta. Once ripe, coffee berries are picked, processed, and dried. Dried coffee seeds (referred to as beans) are roasted to varying degrees, depending on the desired flavor. Roasted beans are ground and brewed with near boiling water to produce coffee as a beverage.
Coffee is slightly acidic and can have a stimulating effect on humans because of its caffeine content. Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world. It can be prepared and presented in a variety of ways (e.g., espresso, French press, cafe latte, etc.). It is usually served hot, although iced coffee is also served. Clinical studies indicate that moderate coffee consumption is benign or mildly beneficial in healthy adults, with continuing research on whether long-term consumption inhibits cognitive decline during aging or lowers the risk of some forms of cancer.
A table is an item of furniture with a flat top and one or more legs, used as a surface for working at, eating from or on which to place things. Some common types of table are the dining room table, which is used for seated persons to eat meals; the coffee table, which is a low table used in living rooms to display items or serve refreshments; and the bedside table, which is used to place an alarm clock and a lamp. There are also a range of specialized types of tables, such as drafting tables, used for doing architectural drawings, and sewing tables.
Common design elements include:
top surfaces of various shapes, including rectangular, square, rounded, semi-circular or oval
legs arranged in two or more similar pairs. It usually has four legs. However, some tables have three legs, use a single heavy pedestal, or are attached to a wall.
several geometries of folding table that can be collapsed into a smaller volume (e.g., a TV tray, which is a portable, folding table on a stand)
heights ranging up and down from the most common 18–30 inches (46–76 cm) range, often reflecting the height of chairs or bar stools used as seating for people making use of a table, as for eating or performing various manipulations of objects resting on a table
a huge range of sizes, from small bedside tables to large dining room tables and huge conference room tables
presence or absence of drawers, shelves or other areas for storing items
expansion of the table surface by insertion of leaves or locking hinged drop leaf sections into a horizontal position (this is particularly common for dining tables)
Vintage daybed made in Germany in the early 1980s. Made of wood, this sofa is extensible on its left side (see pictures). The model is typical for the period and the discret beige colour, in a nice dialogue with the dark wooden parts, is a recuring theme of the german rationalism in design. The sofa is in good vintage condition.
Corner sideboard with rolling shutters. Can be used as a TV stand or minibar and is made in Germany, in the late 1940s or early 1950s. The contrast between the dark brown and acacia color are specific for the German furniture design of that period and creates a nice chromatic game. The sides and top are decorated with brass rods. Inside, the rolling shutters hide behind a double wall when open (so the storage space is completely void). The piece was recently restored and is in very good shape.
Set of 4 "MR" armchairs by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The armchairs are made of tubular steel and black natural leather and are preserved in a very good shape.
The architect and designer Ludwig Mies van der Rohe is one of the best-known exponents of International Style modernism. His "less-is-more" philosophy has become a catchphrase for much twentieth-century design, though a preference for luxurious and costly materials often underscores the deceptive simplicity of his elegant and refined designs.
Mies van der Rohe was the last director of the Bauhaus design school in Dessau, from 1930 until its closing in 1932. In 1938 he left Germany for America, where he headed the architecture department at the Illinois Institute of Technology.
The graceful, elegant, and beautifully proportioned "MR" armchair, developed from a 1924 design for a cantilevered chair by Mart Stam, was introduced by Mies van der Rohe at the 1927 Stuttgart exhibition and has remained in production ever since. The chair’s cantilevered design uses tubular steel, then a technological novelty, to create an intuitively accessible and ergonomic seat. (When asked why he created chairs with generously sized seats, Mies van der Rohe allegedly replied that he designs chairs he’d be most comfortable sitting in.) The MR Armchair is perfectly balanced, featuring the material innovation and lack of ornamentation that epitomize the International Style. It was awarded the Museum of Modern Art Award in 1977 and the Design Center Stuttgart Award in 1978.
In 1968 the Knoll group took the license to manufacture these chairs but both before 1968 and afterwards many factories have in fact produced these iconic pieces.
Beautiful pair of Józef Chierowski's 366 armchairs, made in Poland. Featuring the new Atomic Age aesthetics, this items are iconic for the Polish Modernism. The armchairs have been recently restored and are in great condition.
Józef Marian Chierowski (1927 – 2007) was an eminent interior and furniture designer. He graduated from the Faculty of Interior Design at PWSSP in Wrocław, where in 1976 became the Head of the Department of Design. After 1980, he returned to the Department of Interior Design, where he led the Workshop of Furniture Design (together with Piotr Karpiński). He was strongly associated with Dolnośląska Fabryka Mebli (Lower Silesia Furniture Factory) in Świebodzice, where the prototype of the armchair 366, the symbol of the his success, was made. Józef Chierowski’s works can be admired, among other places, in the National Museum in Warsaw.
