Mid-Century, Vintage, Retro, Call It What You Will: Lushpad Has It!

These days, all things Mid-Century Modern are in. A Craigslist search for names like Eames, Bertoia, Arne Jacobsen, Herman Miller or George Nelson will tell you that. But finding quality mid-century pieces in good vintage condition can be a difficult task. Trust me — I say this from experience. This is where Lushpad comes in. It seems like we all want a piece of the 50s and 60s, and Lushpad is the place where we’ll find it.

To put it simply, Lushpad is an online marketplace to buy and sell vintage furniture and housewares, most of which is in excellent condition. And the greenest product is that one that already exists, so give it a second life. Keep in mind that you WILL find reproductions in the listings, like 2-year-old Crate & Barrel sofas in the MCM style. But there are some gems to be had. Some of my favorites among the current listings:

Widdicomb bedroom cabinet, $599. I love the soft curves and notched drawers fronts. I wouldn’t even touch this wood, because the condition is so great.

lushpad3

Blue Ceramic Table Lamp, $150. Believed to be by Lotte Lamps of Ohio. I love the distinctive shape and the bold, robins egg blue finish!

lushpad4

Galaxy Form Chair by Dux, $1600. This transparent beauty is just the kind of piece that I love, but I know my husband would hate! Newly reupholstered.

lushpad5

Vintage Starburst Clock, $175. There is a special place in my heart for the original starburst mirrors and lamps that inspired the modern versions of today.
