2014 In Review: Mods

Folke Påalsson’s J77 chairs

Perhaps my greatest sidewalk find of the year was this pair of Folke Påalsson’s J77 chairs. There is an asterisk beside this claim because in retrospect, I may spent too much money having them restored to their original glory. The runner-up would be my recent acquisition of the Jens Quistgaard for Dansk Kobenstyle pot (below).

I was also able to tick off a few other examples of mid-century modern classics from my life list, including this thrifted Kaj Franck for Arabia Finland jam pot (above), a Poole Pottery Delphis saucer decorated by Cynthia Bennett (below), and this wounded Kosta Boda Ram (bottom).
