New Ground.

Vintage Ground is moving....from my a new work/store space!  It's a very exciting, scary time, but I think it's going to be wonderful!  For the first couple of months it's going to be used as more of a work space, and hopefully by December it will be a shop for you to come in and browse around, a place for you to sit down and share your ideas and discuss with me the exact piece(s) your looking for.  Like the furnishings I refinish, this space is going to have a great eclectic feel.  So I'm going to have Vintage, Mid Century, Antique, Industrial, Traditional, etc., items, and with that it will be full of character, simplicity, clean lines, lots of color, and of course some black and white.  The inventory will constantly be changing.  Definitely something for everyone, and that is the kind of shop I've dreamed of having.  It's in West Rogers Park in a fantastic residential area.

I will keep you updated on the opening of Vintage Ground, and hope to have everyone in as soon as I open the door!  I'm still busy with wonderful furniture, so if you see something you want please let me know!

Danish Modern Mid Century Bar/China Cabinet and Matching Credenza/Sideboard

The two pieces posted are in such amazing condition.  They are both tagged "Made in West-Germany" by Munker-Modell on the back, and I think that they both were in Austria and Germany by the shipping papers on the back. I am selling them together, being as they are a matching set, and there is only one key to open up to the goodies.

***I will sell the sideboard/credenza separate for $500. I have a separate key for it to open/close it, but it will not lock, which isn't a big deal.***

The Bar/China Cabinet.

This item is in two pieces, the top and the bottom.  Such a STUNNING piece to look at.  The top has two cabinets that lock, as well as a sliding wood door and a sliding glass door.  In the middle, one area has a place to put liquor, etc., while the other has glass shelving for amazing glassware/barware.  The bottom has three doors that open and lock, and three drawers.  The wood grain is absolutely stunning all over the piece, and has been taken care of very well.  There are only a couple of small blemishes to the entire piece, one of the doors is missing the front of the lock space (but still locks), and under one of the drawers, the wood spacer is missing, neither of which are noticeable.  This piece can store all barware, china, silverware, etc.  A very versatile piece and will definitely take up a wall wonderfully.

The dimensions are 90.5w 19d 61h.

The Credenza/Sideboard.

The woodgrain throughout this piece is wonderful, and the condition is amazing.  Each item has a couple of tiny knicks that aren't any big deal.  The two locking doors open up to storage and the wood inside all doors are just as amazing as the outside.  There are also four drawers.  This would make an awesome, media stand , credenza , buffet , sideboard , etc. 

The dimensions are: 64.5w 17d 30.5h.

I apologize for the glares on the pieces in the photos, but they are just glares.

All photos can be seen here:

Sideboard - Sold.
Bar/Cabinet - Sold.
