In the store: A little Danish, a little American and a lot of style

This week's additions to the store are three credenzas, a 9-foot Milo Baughman sofa and a chrome and glass coffee table.

One of the credenzas is a Danish beauty manufactured by H. P. Hansen that was purchased in 1972 and still looks brand new. Another is teak with unusual silver pulls and interesting detailing on the doors. The third just received a beautiful professional two-tone finish from mid-century miracle worker Hank Tosh at Toshmahal.

The Milo Baughman sofa has chrome legs and pale gray upholstery. The chrome and glass coffee table has a brand new top and looks like it was made for the sofa.

Update: The two-tone credenza flew out of the store almost as fast as we got it on the floor. Score one for Hank Tosh and his great refinishing job!


  1. Love the Hansen and the Baughman. I'd buy!

  2. @Makemindmidcentury: The Hansen is even prettier in person, and the Baughman is soooooooo sleek. They're both de-luscious!

  3. Is it wrong that when I read you had a little Danish my mind went to yummy pastry? Love the look of the furniture, too!

  4. @DearHelenHartman: I think that's a perfectly normal reaction for a Saturday morning, especially if you can smell coffee brewing in the kitchen.

  5. Oh wow, that silver gray sofa looks soooo long and low! Is it just cuz of the picture or is it maybe a little longer and lower than your average Mod sofa? And yes, a fresh danish and a cup-o-joe sound good even though it's after noon. Wouldn't it be fun if we could all sit around the shop talking about our stuff drinking good coffee and noshing some pastries?

  6. Oh....9ft. I see. Maybe I should read stuff instead of just looking! It IS super long huh!

  7. @Mr.Modtomic: Yep, it's a monster...a super-sleek monster, however. :) And, yes, coffee and pastry would be nice!
