Multi-tasker

Who doesn't like furniture that is both functional and beautiful. When setting up my office I wanted a storage piece that I could also use to display my small collection of photography and my growing collection of glass. I hunted through Craigslist for midcentury consoles but most were too big, then I found this one that was actually two pieces, each the perfect size for my living room and office. If I move and have a space big enough I can then use them together.

The glass is a mix of vintage finds, iKea, Home Goods & a few pieces by my friend, glass blower Kristen Malone. The large poster is from a 70's Diane Arbus exhibition found on eBay. The print to the left is Matthew McConaughey shot by my pal, Davis Factor, then a little estate sale portrait and finally an original print by Barbara Morgan of the dancer, Martha Graham. An amazing gift from my lovely parents.

 

Speaking of art, I am selling this lovely painting in my Etsy Shop some of you may remember it from this post. One of my many Scotts finds, it is dated 1960 on the back and I think has a wonderful haunting quality. Sadly, I just no longer have space for it.

The painting is very cool, I'd snap it up in a heartbeat if I was in the States.
