Day 4 of the High Street Market HOME sneak peeks!  When we came up with the idea of opening a larger online shop, we wanted to create a shopping experience where customers could shop for new and vintage items in the same spot.  After all, good design includes both!  And as you might imagine, the "vintage" section of our new store is very comprehensive.  We'll be offering vintage furniture, lighting, home accessories, and even hardware (more on that next week!).  We will continue to offer a wide assortment of unique items at affordable price points.  And at the same time, the new shop gives us the opportunity to display some of our BEST vintage finds.  Many of these peices are rare, and historically significant.  They are sophisticated, and some are a little unexpected.  We think that our vintage section will become an excellent resource for people looking for top notch vintage finds (without the astronomical prices).  We're really excited about it.


Here are some of the vintage pieces in our inventory:
1948 Solid Brass Racehorse Doorstop
Designed by Calvin Roy Kinstler, this racehorse doorstop depicts "Citation", the 1948 winner of the Triple Crown.

Original 1965 Lytegem task lamp by Lightolier.
Designed by Michael Lax and produced by Lightolier, this task lamp has been a permanent part of the New York Museum of Modern Art collection.  Famous for creating the most perfect reading light!  This lamp adjusts every which way, and can even be mounted on the wall to be used as a wall sconce.


1960s Paul McCobb Mahogany Credenza with Brass Base
Made of mahogany and standing on a brass base, this credenza was designed by Paul McCobb.  This American born designer studied art in Boston, before going off to serve in WWII.  Upon his return, he began his career as a furniture designer in New York City.  His future works were later licensed with a variety of American furniture manufacturers.  A major influrence on mid-century design, Paul McCobb was known as "Americas Decorator".


The new vintage section of our store will be ever evolving, and we'll update it daily.  It will include a full range of price points (so there's something for everyone!). 

To answer your questions, we will not be closing the Etsy shop!  The High Street Market etsy shop will continue to list vintage housewares on a daily basis.



The High Street Market HOME store will be open in just a couple of weeks! Until then, we're posting exclusive sneak peeks of the new shop on this blog. Check back Monday to see another one of our new products.

It doesn't get much better than a Paul McCobb credenza in my opinion. Hope I can afford some of these items!

Archana said...

I was wondering if i could reserve(or pay for) the gilt wheat sheaf table. Pls pls let me know on this. Thanks.

Lauren | Seventeenth and Irving said...

I NEED that credenza in my life. And the horse. And the lamp. You might as well just ship it all to me now!

Thanks everyone!! Ashley and Lauren, the Paul McCobb is one of my ALL TIME favorite things. It's amazing.

Archana- the wheat sheaf table is gorgeous! Unfortuantely, I can't reserve it for you like we sometimes do in the etsy shop. The new store has a "no reserve" policy! But, the shop should be open soon, and I will notify you as soon as it is!

Elizabeth said...
