Well, with social/physical distancing happening there is a lot of time to spend in our homes. Show us some of your fav furniture/spots in the house or the whole house if you want! Here is the current look of our living room!The Inuit print on the brick wall is probably a temporary set-up but giving it a go 😀 Hope you are all well!

I am at that stage in my life where I have no room or any need for new furniture, mid century or otherwise!

I do however have a nice collection of mid century lamps, acquired over the last couple of years; a very important part of interior decor IMO.( and they do not take up too much space!! )

The image  I am posting might not be current but holds an important "spot" in my life.

Family photo from circa 1959. Chairs are Tele chairs by Robin Day for Hille. 

Curtains "Traffic lights" by Jacqueline Groag. Sewn and hung by my mother @spanky might appreciate this.

I would love to get my hands on even a small sample of that fabric, so I can frame it.

My parents were very unusual in acquiring mid century furniture at that time, so I treasure the memory.

Very nice @lexi ! That's a beautiful photo of your family, a good looking bunch!

I'd love to see your lamps if you ever get around to photographing them. There doesn't seem to be be too many opportunities around these parts to get very unique lighting but i've managed to scoop up a couple that we really like and will keep!

@spanky. I don't know how long the curtains were hanging. Barkcloth, not the most long lasting fabric; beloved by moths!!

My mother had to wait a year to enter university and enrolled with an accredited college to study  sewing, pattern design dress making etc. I grew up with a sewing machine in permanent position on the kitchen table. I was her eager apprentice. I still have a sewing machine,sharpened scissors ,pins  and measuring tape( double sided, metric/imperial)...ready to go.

The chairs were originally in charcoal with off white dots and pale grey  contrast seats.

They were reupholstered on a few occasions to reflect changing tastes and eventually, after my mother passed  away in 1996 , my brother  ( middle person in photo) took them , kept them for a few years ( kids playroom/ 2 boys !!) and eventually they ended up in landfill....

Ditto here (though i have 6-7 sewing machines right now, all but one of which i got intending to resell them but i've put it off because they're a huge pain to ship---something I never think about when I'm buying them).  

This is my oldest brother, the one I've talked about here before who is an artist and (now retired) stair builder.  He still has that McCobb chair.  It's at his drafting table and he sits in it often.

My parents weren’t collectors of anything really. We moved around quite a bit when I was young and furniture never came with us. Now they have some of the stuff I don’t have room for and it’s nice to see them enjoying/appreciating it 😀

The "good" room.

Image 1:- British( ?) teak and brass with cast iron feet. Lampshade bought in Germany ; in the style of cocoon lamps; no idea of maker for any of it!!

Image 2/3:- Doria chandelier, 1970's. Not everyones cup of tea but suits my high ceilings ( especially the stipple finish 😶,  put in by previous owner, also in the 70's) and general decor of room.

OMG, what is with the flipping of images???

And finally. I purchased a pair of Louis Kalff, NX41 wall lamps but unfortunately the glass shades broke in transit. So I repurposed a modern coolie  shade; will do for the moment. Most unlikely I will ever find replacement shades on their own!

Image 1:- what they should look like.

Image 2/3:- My DIY version.
