However, the George Nelson designs are expensive, but designer Kenneth Wingard has a sunburst wall clock that looks just as good as Nelson’s and is cheaper. I bought the small Wingard clock and it is large enough. I think I paid 79 or 89 bucks for it and you have a choice of metal finish. sablemable says February 2, 2009 at 8:59 pm http://www.oldtelephones.com. They have vintage telephones and this is where I bought my yellow Bell wall phone for the kitchen. Most of the phones from the late Sixties up until they were discontinued, have never been used and come in a variety of colors. The owner of the site also offers repair service on old phones. TappanTrailerTami says November 21, 2009 at 3:24 pm Hi Pam – I’m not sure if you’ve ever featured Ryan’s Relics in Baltimore, but it might be a great thing for your east coast readers. His prices are truly outstanding for all kinds of fabulous furniture, including some MCM and MCModest 🙂 Take a look! http://ryansrelics.com/New_Items.php the chair weaver says December 29, 2009 at 10:36 am Midcentury modern furniture includes many wonderful pieces woven with reed, Danish rope, fiber rush, cane and leather. Are made of the finest woods, walnut, rosewood and teak and were designed by some of the worlds leading architects. Sadly these materials don’t last forever and have reached the end of their life-span. There is a small but growing group of professional seat weavers able to restore these gems. visit http://www.wickerwoman.com/furniture-repair-directory/seatweaving-experts to see if there is a weaver in you area. Some of the weaves are very difficult and restoration can be expensive but a significant number of pieces are museum worthy and deserve restoration! Allison says January 19, 2010 at 6:35 pm Can anyone give me advice on how to refinish an eames fiberglass shell chair? I found a couple that have been primered, but that’s flaking off and I don’t want to ruin the fiberglass underneath. pam kueber says January 19, 2010 at 7:43 pm Hi Allison, this is not a DIY site.
