Wakefield that is...one of my favorite things about moving into a new space is the interior decorating part. The unpacking/moving part not so much- but I love interior designing.
As some of you may know- I used to be very into "Shabby Chic" and I still am- but as I am now sharing a home with my husband- who happens to be a straight male, we needed to come to a compromise. We both really like mid-century modern/Danish designs. These furniture pieces are typically characterized by clean lines, solid wood and timeless design. My favorite furniture designer from the 50's-60's era is Heywood Wakefield. I'm obsessed with the designs! We found a couple of amazing pieces in Pittsburgh- a coffee table and end table, both in the champagne finish- and definitely both needing to be refinished, but for only $70. That is a joke- total steal. Coffee table and side table pictured below.
Next up we found in LA (and by "found" I'm referring to scouring Craigslist-unless otherwise noted) this beautiful multi-use Heywood Wakefield piece. I think it technically is a vanity (missing the mirror)- but we are currently using it as a TV stand. It is in the champagne finish as well, and is in excellent condition. Another steal at $150. I'm in love with it- and we only had to drive to the valley to get it!
Also the lamp is an awesome 60's gem from one of my Godfather's Saturday sales on Silverlake Blvd. in Los Angeles. Check him out at Scott and Silverlake Blvd. Saturday mornings/afternoons!
