One Man's Trash


I've always contended that the Dallas-Fort Worth area is better for finding MCM furniture than most people on the coasts might think. However, sometimes that ain't always true.

Consider the Hans Olsen table and chairs above. When he lived in NYC, my friend J found a set like that left out on the street for the trashman. Something that cool would never be out by the side of the road around here. The Big Apple got us beat there.

That is a rare sight. I have had the pleasure of restoring/refinishing some of these chairs, but out on the curb?! No such luck.
