Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows features Knut Hesterberg’s Propeller table. Designed in the mid 1960′s for Richard Schmitt (Germany). This can be found anywhere from $1000-$3000. This example is polished aluminum, but there are steel versions floating around.
MCM NERD got a new look for 2012. Last year we met a lot of new friends and look forward to meeting more this year. We’re excited for the new year and have been watching lots of TV, so LUCKY YOU!
I love Shirley Maclaine, Paul Frankl, and Paul Laszlo…… and all three are in the 2005 Cameron Diaz movie, In Her Shoes. The dresser is Paul Frankl for Brown Saltman. design / one in San Diego has a refinished one for $4200. I personally really like the honey/blonde vintage wood that was prevalent in the Fifties and Sixties, though the darker walnut tones are handsome against the brass hardware. I found another one for $1500 on ebay… Gotta love ebay.
The living room chairs are Paul Laszlo. I found a pair at Red Modern Furniture for $4800.
The dining table is Paul Laszlo. I found the whole set (with the complimentary chairs- not used in the film) at Off The Wall Antiques. It looks like everyone’s on the same track with ebonizing/refinishing the blond wood… Which color do you prefer???
CBS’s 2 Broke Girls and NBC’s Whitney have a few things in common. 1st – Whitney Cummings (creator of both shows) and 2nd - G Plan’s Astro Cocktail / Coffee table. I wonder if that was intentional or just laziness? The great thing about this table is that it can look chic and a bit upscale in the Whitney apt or low key and hip in the Brooklyn 2 Broke Girls apartment. Versatility!
You can find this example for $300 on Etsy right now or……
$2800 for an oval version at Stellar Union…
Laverne and Shirley … I mean those 2 Broke Girls, Max and Caroline should try to sell their table so they won’t be so broke.
