In the store: Bringing home the bronze

While my daughter, SIL and the boys were on vacation, there was supposed to be a moratorium on work, work-talk and even work-think...but of course my SIL couldn't resist checking Craigslist. It's a good thing, because he scored this beautiful side table by Warren Platner...and it's in the coveted bronze finish. Such a looker!


Here it is with carseats and pillows, coming home from vacation.
And here it is in the store, looking a little more dignified.

  1. I once dropped by a craigslist sellers joint to pick up a tulip dining table and when I saw a Platner table (much like this) in the living room the seller must have seen my eyes bug out a little cuz he stopped me before I could even ask!

    1. We sold a pair in the nickel finish, but this is the first time we've had bronze. I've never seen one of the bronze tables, so I can't wait to get to the store and take a look at this one.

    1. Once more, he hit the jackpot, for sure. He amazes me with his ability to find one beautiful piece after another.

  4. You can't NOT talk shop when you have such fun stuff to find! Love that table, it's uber mod.

    1. Yes, I think that falls in the category of things that are acceptable moratorium-breakers. :)

  5. Your SIL really has that sixth sense, the table is yet another one of his awesome finds and most probably another one that will go quick!

    (sorry about the deletion/mess)

    1. He really does. He's developed a real eye for great pieces and seems to know how to ferret them out even when they are listed incorrectly on CL and eBay.

    1. I think so too. Not only did he find a great table, but he took a great photo of it too.

    1. I find them very interesting too. Now we need to find the chairs and ottomans and sofas and dining tables in the same line. I'm not asking too much, am I? :)

  8. So pretty it deserves it's own pillow! Great find... I bet he was just jumping up and down inside.
    I have always loved the Platner stuff but have yet to find any. Congrats.

    1. I think he was pretty happy to find this piece. He deals with so many beautiful things on a daily basis that he doesn't get quite as excited as he did when he first opened the store, but beneath that cool exterior, I can tell when he's found something he likes. :)

    1. I'd love to have one too...or two or three. Several months ago, someone in my neighborhood had several Platner pieces on Craigslist. Unfortunately, I didn't contact them, and it's driving me nuts knowing that furniture is somewhere a few blocks from me, and I have no way of figuring out where.
