Coming up for air, but still adding things to the inventory.

The Christmas rush has started!  My small items are moving out the door!  Pyrex sets, holiday decor....it's going!  This is very exciting and I am still trying to get everything out the door in 24 hours or less.  I will be stressing about last minute shipments and I can tell you UPS STANDARD will get things to NYC in one day.  But do not push your luck!  I would gladly upgrade your shipping but you need to reach out to me so I can quote it for you!  Anything going by bus really needs to get out this weekend to have a chance of making it.  I can tell you my NYC bus shipment usually arrive in Port Authority the next day after I ship, but with holiday travel, we cannot assume anything at this point. 

NEWS

If you have been to any of the shops or the web site this week, you may have noticed I have commissioned a new logo! 

Also on the move is the new Chairish shop!  I am up 6 listings, approved and live!  I am hoping to reach a new market of designers and collectors and am looking forward to my first sale and going through the process.  I will be cross listing pieces in the shops and prices will vary accordingly.     

MadModWorldVintage Shop on Chairish

I continue to tweak things on the web page and hope everyone finds it helpful and easy to use.  There are a few things that bother me and I will continue to tweak! I am all set up for commerce and am limited in what I can have listed, so will keep the web direct deals to items that do not fit etsy's strict criteria.  I have some new vintage themed items for sale!  They will make great stocking stuffers!  Also, I picked up a fabulous set of T-Vac chairs by Ron Arad for Vitra.  Only designed in 1999, these are too new for etsy. Ron Arad is a London based Architect and Designer who has been dubbed the hottest of our modern designers.  I thought these were definitely in line with my offerings and scooped them up! Buy direct for best price!

Also new this week are a SUPER set of 7 Lane Perception dining chairs!  They are an awesome Danish inspired style, but with all the great construction of American made era furniture.  The seats are very large, everything is super sturdy and these lived their whole lives to date with one family who raised 11 children!  I have update with new vinyl seats, tended to some finish issues ending with some new lacquer and glued up some weak joints.  They are ready to ship and will look great around any walnut table.  Please check out the Perception line if you are unfamiliar.  Designed by Warren Church, this line incorporates a sleek Danish style and these seats and some of the tables incorporate a floating look.  Drawer faces feature woven cane.  It truly is a nice line and is very collectable as many of the era Lane pieces are.  They are fairly easy to find and pricing is reasonable.

Farstrup Mobler. Classic Danish modern farmhouse design.

Farstrups profile

– craftsmanship since 1910

Farstrup Furniture A/S has its roots in the village of Farstrup, and well-established sawmilling traditions. The company was founded as a sawmill in 1910, and after some years the production was expanded to comprice furniture – since 1960 in a significant volume.

We have continuously expanded and modernized the production in Farstrup, and can therefore guarantee that all the furniture is 100%.

"Made in Denmark"

Farstrup Møbler is Danish Design and crafts through and through. In other words, we make furniture from scratch: we cut the wood, process it in our joinery workshop, apply the finish and assemble it.

We also have our own stitching and upholstery workshops. This keeps us in complete control of the high quality that has been our hallmark for decades and which our customers expect of us.


I have been smitten with Farstrup chairs ever since I have laid eyes on them!  My first find was the little black #216 classic stick back.  It was in poor condition and there were huge chips of paint missing from it.  I felt it needed to be saved.  After a lot of stripping and sanding, it has been fully restored and it absolutely gorgeous!  The 216 model has been reintroduced by Farstrup and is back in production for their European market.  Alas, they are not imported to the US.  The only option you have to obtain one of these lovelies is to find a vintage one.  I will tell you they are out there, but unfortunately, finding a full set in one blow may prove difficult!  That is one of the reasons I pick them up.  I do find a lot of my single and pair chairs go to homes that are looking to add them to a set already in use!  That makes me super happy!  This chair does have a doppleganger, though! 

DOBBLEGANGER made by FDB MOBLER, another Danish company.  Notice the indent across the top of the back!  Farstrup does not have this.  Otherwise, they are pretty close.  The seat from above is also shaped different.  This chair is attribute to Folke Palsson.

I do not know much about FDB Mobler other than they had some very well known designers working with them.  Construction and quality seems similar to Farstrup.  You cannot go wrong adding any of these to your home.  They add a certain charm and mix well with other period furniture, if you aren't a pure modernist. 

I have 3 styles of Farstrup chairs in stock now as you will see at the top of the page.  Please have a look in the shop to check them out!
