Ebay find.

So...after the little fashion diversion, we're back to furniture and here's a selection of iconic pieces currently found on eBay. This time more Mid-Century Modern than the 80s Post-Modern stuff I've been hyping of late.

Although described as 60s/70s in the auction, I'd place this more in the late 50s/early 60s. It perfectly suits 1950's Tola (African Mahogany) furniture which I love so much because they just ebonised everything for a touch of Noir-ish glamour:

Also on a similar tip is this late 50s Sofa and matching chairs. Geometric and angular, they feature original charcoal and grey fabric in a typically 'New Wave' abstract pattern.The castors are listed as being 'easily removable', something I'd personally do like, immediately:
