In the store: New credenza and dining table

I just thought I was going to post twice a week for a while. I should have known better.

Between construction news and store news, there's always a little miscellaneous news. Add the fact that I'm known as a bit of a talker, and there's no way I can stick to a two-times-a-week schedule.

Anyway, why would I want to, when my SIL is getting in pieces like this fabulous credenza? It measures 65" in length, has tambour doors and is newly refinished...and it sold before I could even post about it. How could it not?

Take a look at this impressive pedestal dining table. We saw it attributed to Milo Baughman in one eBay listing, and my SIL talked with someone yesterday who said the same, but we haven't found any proof of that yet. It is similar to some tables by Warren Platner too, so at this point, we don't know who designed it. Do any of you know? It is 66" x 38" x 28.5" and has a leaf for an additional 16". The brushed aluminum trim at the bottom of the pedestal really gives it an extra measure of va-va-voom.

  1. Those pieces are just gorgeous!! I have a soft spot for 60s teak credenzas. Love the clean lines and the great attention to the subtle detalis. I noticed you posted more than twice this week, can't say I wasn't thrilled about that:-) I'm a talker too, can't help it!

    1. I love credenzas too. I can get more excited about them than anything else we get in the store.

      Yes, I'm finding that I can't stick to the twice-a-week schedule at all. Now that I don't feel obligated to post daily, I can think of so much more to say!

    1. I feel the same way. There's something really special about a beautiful credenza.

  3. Both are really stunning! I'm not surprised that credenza is gone already. These are the absolutely hottest items that come through the door. Especially with tambour or sliding front doors.

    1. I think that grain is stunning. Our refinisher told my SIL that it's Honduran mahogany.
