Mid Century Martha

Martha Stewart recently debuted her new line of furniture at the High Point Market this year. Her new collection features a lot of mid-century inspired furniture and updated versions of classic pieces. I’m a sucker for wood and gold combinations and tufted couches. I also love the incorporation of pattern and texture with basic white and gray colors as shown below in the Ikat armchair and rug.

The High Point Market is going on through April 26 in North Carolina and is a hub for home furnishings and interior design.

20th Century Cincinnati

My husband and I attended 20th Century Cincinnati this past Saturday. It was truly a vintage mecca. Most of the vendors sold mid-century items and there were a few Art Deco booths as well.  One of my favorite things was the special exhibit about Bakelite. I’ve never seen so many Bakelite radios in one place! There was also a lot of Bakelite jewelry on display along with some backgammon games and silverware.

Heywood-Wakefield

Heywood-Wakefield Company was established in 1826 as a producer of wicker and rattan furniture.  They began creating wood furniture during the Arts and Crafts movement with sleek modern designs that continued through the 1930s in the French Art Deco style. They are most well known for their mid-century modern style furniture pieces which are also the most common Heywood-Wakefield items that you’ll find today. My friend Camille has a mid-century Heywood-Wakefield coffee table in her home almost identical to the one below but I know she didn’t spend anywhere close to $900! (remember… estate sales!)

Salton

I recently bought a vintage Salton hot food tray at a yard sale for $1! Salton is a brand that started making appliances in Canada in the 1950s. I think my food tray is from the 1960s based on color and design.  This hot plate not only warms your food but also looks good on the table! I’m excited to use it when I host my Mad Men party in a few weeks!
