Happy Friday, everyone!
Last year we decided to finally get that George Nelson pendant lamp we’ve always wanted. We went with the small saucer version of the bubble lamps, and we couldn’t be happier. I know it’s a very popular mid-century lamp, but when something’s good, it’s good. Anyway, we were very excited to finally receive it. We had been living with an off-center drum shade, which drove me crazy. This one is perfect, and we are done with the dining room lighting. Now, onto the next project!
Here’s the latest up for auction at KL Vintage Modern! This is definitely one of my all-time favorite pieces. This is a teak planter designed by Arne Wahl Iversen for Vinde MobelFabrik of Denmark, circa 1961. It features three storage drawers on the left and a planter with removable metal table top on the right side. There is also a slatted shelf on the bottom to hold books, magazines, etc. It’s a beautiful and versatile piece, so be sure to check it out.
I have to share one of Kelly’s greatest find to date; these gorgeous Danish teak chairs. We were in desperate need of some different dining chairs, so we were keeping our eye out for a nice, reasonably priced set. We had been using the Arne Jacobsen Series 7 chairs for a couple years, and 2 chairs just weren’t enough. I loved them, but they were damaged and needed a lot of work. So one day while thrifting (yes, thrifting) Kelly found this set for $80, and brought them home. I almost died when he brought me out to the van and opened the doors. I absolutely love them! I posted the photo above on Instagram, and a wonderful user informed me that they were designed by Arne Vodder! Bonus! The craftsmanship is so beautiful, I can understand why these chairs (and all vintage Danish furniture) have become so desirable. We’ve had them for about a month, and they’re the best dining chairs we’ve had. (This is our 4th set). The others were either too heavy or too rickety. I believe we’ll have these for many years. The search is over for the perfect dining chairs, and we can cross one thing off our list.
Here are some great last-minute gift ideas and holiday decor items from my shop.
I’ve been working really hard these past few months adding gorgeous items to my shop, so please take a look at these items and lots more at Kibster Vintage. Happy Holidays!
We’re excited about our auction items this week. I’ve decided to give up one of the pieces from our personal collection-this Paul McCobb planner group table. It’s one of my favorite pieces, and I’m hoping it goes to a great home!
I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday weekend!

Just a quick Around the House post to get the weekend off to a good start. I’m excited about going to Renninger’s tomorrow and hoping that we’ll bring back some more goodies. As usual, I’ll be posting some photos.. Have a great weekend, everyone!
I hope everyone is having a fantastic day! My sweetie bought these roses for me, and also found something else this week…
He found a (possible) original Knoll tulip table! My old Burke table was a bit too big for this space, and we love the marble top on this which has a subtle pattern. It needs a little TLC, but it’s worth it. Kelly is still working on our Shelby Williams Gazelle chairs to go with it, so I’ll post photos when they’re ready. The tulip chairs he found a few months ago just didn’t work for us. We prefer something more lightweight and easy to move around, so they’ll be going up for sale soon, as well as the Burke base. We’re keeping the top since it’s bigger and it will come in handy for when we have company.
I’m looking forward to the weekend so we can really celebrate Valentine’s Day. A very old and dear friend is coming to visit tomorrow morning, so I’m excited about that. Then Kelly and I are going to Renninger’s Extravaganza on Saturday. This will be the last Extravaganza until November, so we’re hoping to have better luck than the January event. Either way, it’s always fun! If we have the energy on Saturday, we’ll probably go out to eat at our favorite restaurant, The Garlic. I think I’ll turn in early tonight so I can get plenty of rest! I hope everyone has a great weekend & a Happy Valentine’s Day! xoxo
