The coffee table was from a company called Pure Design. They had sold their product through various stores on the web and have since gone out of business. :(

The collection also included side tables in various heights and colors. I miss them.

The tripod lamp is not vintage. It is fairly current from a company called Orbit.

The shade came from a company called Meteor Lights in San Francisco (www.meterolights.com). They custom make shades in many colors and shapes for all kinds of lamps...current and vintage. Check them out.

Yes, the planter is an original fiberglass planter found at a second hand store. It still has the label on the inside.

Gretchen is correct in finding the website for the models they make today. I believe this is the only place that makes them now. I don’t think they have the woodgrain ones but have lots of colors to pick from. I want them all!

The Warhol print is entitled Flash: November 22, 1963 JFK Assassination c. 1968 (Red and Pink) It is available at www.allposters.com

Hey everyone. Thanks for the nice comments. You are all too kind.

Here are some of the answers to your questions.

clarkbar9: The picture above the vintage Paul McCobb unit is a Andy Warhol glicee print that was bought online.

kdkaboom: The ottoman was bought at an antique store and recovered in vintage barkcloth.

As Modfan points out the wooden chairs are Eames and totally comfortable.

The photography skewed the colors a bit. The walls are a color called Griddle Grey and the couches are a medium grey. In person the wall color looks like a deep dark chocolate.
