A blog to support the mother/daughter team of Babs and Bec and their vintage hobby shop on Etsy. Babs will discuss mid-century modern, her private collection, vintage items, her original art work and their REMIX items in the shop.
I would like to give a big shout out and thank you to Ira Mency for helping me design this new blog. I think it looks wonderful. What do you think? Please comment and let me know.
As I said in the beginning blogs when I started this thing I wanted to talk about mid-century modern furniture. I have these two Kensington Aluminum chairs and I would appreciate any comment or info anyone has about them. The info i have found out so far is that they were from the 1950's and they were from Alcoa when aluminum was a "new metal". I found an old magazine ad about them. They two chairs that I have were purchased at a school but they look pretty fancy for a students chair.
So anyone out there that has info about these chairs let me know. They are for sale but I haven't decided on the price yet because they are so rare and unusual. Lurelle Guild, is that the designer, or design line????????
