Hipsters Holla Back!

I love that expression "HIPSTER."
I confess. I am a Hipster & proud of it. Back in the day there were Hippies, Yippies, Yuppies, Buppies, Dinks & Shrinks.
Society really gets a kick out of labeling folks and states there's a new movement out here pulsating, gyrating & gelling before our very eyes.
"They've" also mapped out Chicago's Wicker Park as "Hipster Heaven."
Well actually thats what I call it.

Billy Baldwin "X" Benches

William “Billy” Baldwin (1903-1983) designs were immaculately timeless. His name became the byword for exemplary American design. Billy Baldwin’s style was crisp, elegant, simple and practical.

Since we moved to this new location, we've been, as I like to say, "CRA-ZEE DAH-LING!"

I don't get an opportunity to post on as much as I'd like, blog as much as I used to, and hang out & party like a Rock Star.

Sidebar. We were on the road a couple weeks ago & after we closed one of the clubs, I suggested we just stay up! Why not? We had a 6am appointment the next morning anyway. I remember hearing groans & laughter at my suggestion.

Anywho, today it dawned on me how truly wonderful this business is. I was chopping it up with Megan--from the neighborhood. She stopped in for a bit. After she left, I thought about the bright side of this business. We get to travel & shop for Arne Jacobsen & Ed Wormley pieces in little out of the way places. High five each other (Ty), when we score entire vintage households that have gone untouched by the human hand for decades. Decide on Maharaham, Boucle or Mohair fabric for a 9 foot Dux sofa. Or simply RE-MIX entire homes. Then there's always an estate sale or two, a set design for a television show, or a great magazine spread. Don't get me wrong. All of that is fantastic! But the best thing?? 


All the engagements! Parties!! Weddings! The sweet little babies born on our watch! All the "hook-ups" made at our shop! All the tears from relationships--both happy & sad. The new careers! The new cities! Music, photographers, stories. Somethings always going down!!

Recently a customer stopped by and stated he'd recently lost his job at Harpo studio & his girlfriend decided to leave town, as he put it for "greener pastures." Luckily I had a fresh bottle of tequila on hand. Today Janie stopped by & reported Jason Grotto is a dad! Bring the baby by the shop Jason!! My Joanie is doing big things on the West coast! Come say good-bye before you go! Andriennes coming in from LA & staying at the Fairmont for the week. She put us on her list of stops! 

I feel like George Bailey. It is indeed a wonderful life!

An Orange Moon's Top Five Vintage GET List

Don't know where to start?
Follow these easy step by step furniture instructions on An Orange Moon's

* Harvey Probber Sofa

This is hands down the most important & presumably the largest piece of furniture you will purchase. When choosing a sofa, look for great lines, a solid frame & little bit of swagga! Remember, whether you call it a couch, davenport, daybed or sofa, this is the piece you build out from.

*Side bar: An Orange Moon always has adorable vintage refurbished sofas in stock. This week? A DUX by Folkes Ohlsson & a Selig sofa totally re-mixed Dunbar style! These sofas are An Orange Moon exclusive.

*Teak "FULL Sideboard" Credenza
Some of us can remember back in the day when a Credenza was called a Buffet, Sideboard or Console. Today's Design Stars use them as a cabinet to float a flatscreen above, a kick-ass storage unit to house component systems, and just a really smart unit to for extra storage.

*Sidebar: In the AOM Home, we have one in every room. My favorite is the guest Credenza where it houses cotton balls, fluffy hand towels, hotel style sheets, travel size lotions, tooth brushes & other things guest need for AOM style comfort. Try it. Not only will your guest feel special (you anticipated their needs, & you really want them there!), but it aids in keeping order in the home, thus allowing you to visit your guests, instead of playing the role of hand maiden. New Credenza arrivals include: American of Martinsville & Folke Ohlsson for Dux.


*Kipp Stewart for Stuart McDougall Dining Set

Want to make a memory? Buy a vintage Mid Century Modern dining room set! No not the little bistro style, but the table that has two or more leaves, 6 side chairs & 2 head chairs. (The two head chairs can be big & upholstered if you  want to chop it up a bit!) That Design Stars, is the new move!  

*Have a smallish space & want to have a dinner party? Remove all the chairs & reposition the table (in its entirety) to the longest wall or under the window for all you Bungalow owners out there! Then add a LARGE FRESH floral center piece, your favorite dishes on your prettiest platters & poof, you've just transitioned that awesome dining table into a buffet! Position the chairs around the wall, "house party" style. As the night winds up, the food is devoured, and the staff can bring out the wine. Now watch the dining room becomes the dance floor! HOLLA! New dining room arrivals include: Eva Chairs, Erik Christiansen & American of Martinsville.

4. Vintage Lighting
Image of Mid Century Modern Danish Lamps

 *Mid Century Modern Lamps

How important is lighting? It can make or break a room! Gone are the days of just one pair. Todays Design Stars up light, down light & spot light every corner of every room. We currently have 8 lamps in our living room.  

*Use lighting on top of bookcases & fireplaces, in unconventional spaces like the kitchen. Want to really chop it up? Do it AOM style and add a chandelier in the  bath. Yes really! Your guest will think they've just stumbled into Elle Decor.
New arrivals: Acrylic base lamps! Nice for keeping a tight space open. And for the industrial enthusiats, a vintage, mint condition heat/irradiation lamp by Sperti, inc.

5. The Vintage Lounge Chair

The Egg Chair

After a hard day in the world, you come in, turn off the alarm, throw your keys on the hall Credenza, kick off your shoes, put down your bag/briefcase & what?  Fall into the waiting arms of your favorite lounge chair. For me its my Egg chair. It was made to block out sound. And on some days I need to chill, have a sip of something cool, flip through a magazine & listen to the television drone on about much ado about nothing.

*We think a lounge chair is just as important as a sofa. Why? Because It's all yours. Your own private little sanctuary. New arrivals: a fabulous pair of walnut lounge chairs totally reupholsterred in a French Oatmeal Boucle. Want to know a design secret? Add a footstool to your lounger--instant heaven!

Take it slow, have fun & have a happy Fourth of July!

8 Danish Dining Room Chairs by Erik Christensen

8 Erik Christensen Slagelse Mobelvaerk Fabrik Chairs

The wonderful thing about this biz is we always take every opportunity to make it a learning experience. Over the years we've learned:

A. The many types of woods used to create the pieces. Mahogany, Rosewood, Fruitwood, Walnut, Oak, Teak...

B. How the piece was treated over the years by its original owners. E.g., was the piece always by the window catching sun rays? Did the O.O. use oils or varnishes on the pieces? Have the pieces been properly repaired/restored if broken? Or was it a DIY project?

C. What was the vintage manufacturer's budget when creating these stellar works of art? Yes some manufacturer's had more money than others, & they were mass produced--& that's okay, but some lack quality & some companies made up for a low production budget with a good design! 

Well I'm here to tell you folks, this is not one of them. These chairs are SOLID TEAK & hands down individual works of art. Can you imagine what SOLID TEAK would cost today if you wanted to replicate just one chair? Pardon me, I don't wish to speak of money, I just want to make my point clear. Nothings made of SOLID ANYTHING today!!

My hubby Ty McDaniel pointed out, the arm & hip of the chair is in the shape of a "Boomerang." Hence the nickname--"Boomerang chair." We usually source our pieces from D.C. & Ohio, but when these came available, we hit the road, along with a hand full of other dealers & travelled a great distance to acquire them! Why? Because these chairs are individual works of art. And to have a set of 8 is almost unheard of. Oh & BTW, its rumoured Erik Christensen only made these chairs for 3 years. So you won't find them at Design Within Reach, or any of the big box stores that make "licensed reproductions." No judgement! I'm just saying.

And who is this ERIK CHRISTENSEN genius person? A hard working designer turned manufacturer of the Slagelse furniture company! No small feat apparently...

These 8 classic Scandinavian, signed & Denmark control sealed, Solid TEAK chairs are available now only at AOM! Go ahead, Modernists, pull ahead of the pack. True Mad Men/Women--you won't see these stunners anywhere, but
An Orange Moon.

Priced at:
$2790 for complete set of eight. 7 side & 1 head.

Dux Sofa by Folke Ohlsson @ An Orange Moon

Image of Dux Sofa

Dux was a San Francisco based company started by Swedish designer Folke Ohlsson in the late 1950s. Dux furniture is usually referred to as Danish Modern or Scandinavian Modern, and this Dux sofa is an uber barometer of stellar design! What do you think about the Tiffany Blue Boucle (pronounced Boo-clay) Yeah, right??!!

Design Stars, this sweetheart measures approximately 8ft and has been totally redone by our personal upholsterer. Today it is in house, on our showroom floor, waiting to be wisked away to your uber hip space!

Let me be clear about the process. This vintage sofa/couch was stripped done to the frame & brought back up with all NEW hand-picked & sourced materials. Are you ready to make your design mark? Call Lynne @ 312.450.9821 with questions regarding shipping, delivery or design assistance.
