An Orange Moon

Vintage Mid Century Modern chair designed by Ty & Lynne McDaniel.

Chair name:

"Letters" by Gunnar Aagaard Andersen, designed in Denmark in 1955. 

"Color, texture, funtion, design. An uber-hip salute to a subtle but cool work of "mid century modern art."

Since you asked. This is the Steve Madden boot I wore for this event. Below is a mainstay from my closet, an 80's leather "Biker" jacket. I purchased it new in the 80's. Timeless cool.

La Chaise Lounge Chair by Charles and Ray Eames

Isn't she a beauty? And besides being a sculptural gem, its really very comfortable! Charles and Ray Eames designed La Chaise in 1948 for a competition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, inspired by ''Floating Figure'', a sculpture by Gaston Lachaise. It is the unbelievable elegance of this assertive seating sculpture that enables any number of sitting and reclining positions, which is so very appealing. It has long since established itself as an icon of organic design. They were truly ahead of the times!

Manufactured by Vitra, one of the preeminent names in European furniture.
Overall Height - Top to Bottom: 34.25 Inches
Overall Width - Side to Side: 59 Inches
Overall Depth - Front to Back: 34.34 Inches

An Orange Moon Vintage Furniture Shop Turns 5 Years Old!!!!!

Lynne & Ty McDaniel

Can you believe it? WE ARE FIVE YEARS OLD! Do you remember the space in the photo below?? It was on the South side of Chicago, back in 2009. It had pale green walls and painted white floors, so quaint, warm and welcoming. Now add a treasure trove of Mid Century Modern furniture, great jazz and tequila and poof!, An Orange Moon! We loved it there! 

Our old location on 59th street.

So many people, parties, tequila and the furniture! O.M.G. 
Wait, I'm getting ahead  of myself. You all know the story of how we came to be? Well, Ty McDaniel, my husband and vintage furniture Guru, suggested we leave our careers as Clinicians and open a  vintage furniture shop. I didn't have to think twice! With a background in Antiques, courtesy of my mom, a graduate of 
Ray-Vogue, and Ty's killer eye, we were on our way to Herman Miller heaven!
Then we found this space on North ave.
Pretty rough huh?

Before at new location

After at new location

The Little Pop-Up That Could

Are you ready for *WOW? 
What's *WOW? 
Why its the newest, hippest, coolest neighborhood west of the Hipster Triangle.
*West of Western you'll find An Orange Moon, Tom Robinson Gallery
Please click the link below to see our progress and check me out, 
the QUEEN of WOW, in the video!
Now without futher ado, I bring you,

WOW! — Here is what Rosie Quasarano plans to serve at her Bucktown cafe, Cup and Spoon, in no particular order: pie, art, granola, poetry and, of course, coffee.
Here's how she plans to do it: by putting the cafe in the front room of Iwona Biedermann's Dreambox Foto Studio at 2415 W. North Ave.
It's a unique arrangement that both women say is just right for this burgeoning little stretch of North Avenue they and other residents have dubbed the WOW (west of Western) district. Here, the neighbors really do know each other's names.
"Coffee is at the core, but it's more than that," said Quasarano, who is targeting an early April opening. "The sign in the window says, 'Coffee, community and art,' and that's the mission, bringing people together and showcasing cool people and the neighborhood and what it has to offer."
Artist Tom Robinson, whose studio is across the street at 2416 W. North Ave., is building the wooden counter and bar that will be a focal point in the 1,000-square-foot space. Robinson was a furniture maker for three decades before he became a painter. He doesn't even drink coffee.
"We're very excited about our little area," he said.
The custom neon sign for Cup and Spoon is being made at Fishtail Neon, 2247 N. Western Ave.
Quasarano is keeping the menu very local, too — Metropolis coffee and tea and breakfast pastries and sweets from Cheap Tart. She's thinking of doing "cool toast service" (in the vein of what's taken hold in San Francisco) using breads from local bakers and butters flavored with herbs and made-in-Chicago preserves.
She plans to add lunch options later from vendors she's met at the Nosh food festival, where she launched Cup and Spoon last summer.
The cafe will hold art shows and open-mic poetry, music and spoken word events regularly, drawing from Biedermann's extensive network of artists.
"Coffee and I have a long history," Biedermann said. "Rosie is a wonderful young woman and I'm very happy because this is her dream."
Biedermann moved to the neighborhood 11 years ago, when vacant buildings along North Avenue outnumbered occupied ones.
In recent years, the area has quietly drawn an eclectic mix of independent retail and artists seeking affordable rent. Dotting North Avenue now are several art studios, a dance studio, a vintage furniture shop, a cigar store, a salon/clothing boutique and an Indian restaurant residents gush about. But there's no coffee shop.
For as long as she can remember, Quasarano has wanted to own a coffee shop, just a simple gathering place for coffee, pastry, art and conversation.
She held on to that goal while working her way through college as a Barista and art studio manager, and in the years after graduation as she built a successful advertising career.
Two years ago, Quasarano moved to the neighborhood. Last summer, she made the big leap: from associate creative director at a division of the Leo Burnett Group to pop-up coffee shop owner, running a stand (with her boyfriend Suneil Bisht and her brother Frank Quasarano) at the Nosh and looking for a storefront.
A stop into An Orange Moon, the vintage furniture store at 2418 W. North Ave., was fortuitous. Quasarano and the shop's owner, Lynn McDaniel, got to talking about her cafe concept. McDaniel in turn introduced her to Biedermann across the street.
"In this economy, instead of competing with each other, you share the customer. Rosie and I are very much interested in that," Biedermann said. "Her vision for a coffee shop embraces all the cultural and art exchanges that can take place in this space."
"I feel the wonderful vibes this space emits," said McDaniel, who also lives in the neighborhood.
An Indiegogo campaign, which ends March 7, has raised nearly 70 percent of Quasarano's $15,000 fundraising goal.
