Of course I was a trekkie. So, I immediately loved this vintage light designed to look like the Star Trek Enterprise. It immediately goes into my wonderful oddities — “woddities” — Hall of Fame. The Modern Historic is an etsy seller in West Palm Beach, Florida. I can only being to imagine the midcentury wonders that seller Nick is pulling out of condos and homes there. West Palm Beach and this part of southern Florida: One of the key epicenters of midcentury modern cool in the 1960s, for sure! Regarding this light, Nick says:
This Star Trek Enterprise Lamp is original from the 1960′s. Based off of research on Star Trek blogs (who would know best!) there were only 500 of these ever made.
Link: Vintage Star Trek Enterprise chandelier or pendant light, $675, The Modern Historic. Pricey, but not that RR readers are being offered a 20% discount. Nick says:
We love your blog! Offer a 20% off to your customers with coupon code retro! Thanks!!!! Nick
Nick has other vintage lovelies, and he kindly gave me permission to feature some of his photos. Above: Bright orange and chartreuse upholstered sofa from the 1960s or 1970s, $900. So Southern Florida, don’t you think!
Yabba dabba tiki do! Leopard vinyl wrought iron tiki barstools, $300 for the set (plus discount if you use the “retro” code). If I had my Florida condo, I would buy these in a New York minute!
An unusual coffee table with artsy chartreuse glass panels, $575. Thank you, Nick!
