A Piece of History for $600 AND PUBLIC WAREHOUSE SALE ON SUNDAY!



Highly collectible G-Plan server produced by E Gomme of High Wycombe, UK. Velvet lined silverware drawer, brass hardware, and Piero Fornasetti style front. E Gomme gold embossed stamp. 1952.

G-Plan is a UK furniture company with a fascinating history. First established during World War II, the furniture was rationed by the Board of Trade. This scheme ended in 1952, the year this server was made, when the company made its transition to a modern furniture producer that employed designers such as Kofod Larsen.

A primer on the Annex


Sunday sale virgins typically walk into the first warehouse and say wow. After surveying 5000 sq ft of furniture, they step through a small doorway and say "what the?". Welcome to the Annex, the new 6000 sq ft addition to the Mid-Century Furniture Warehouse.





We are a little less refined in here, not to say we are going for showroom chic in the front. The Annex features lots of "as is" and clearance furniture, as well as vintage designer clothing, kitchenware, books, records, and not your grannies tzotchkes. 

Here's an example of a bedroom set that will be on clearance in the annex this Sunday.

Long low dresser $450
Hiboy dresser $350
Nightstands $250






Chinoiserie


James put together this Chinoiserie vignette which highlights some furniture we have that doesn't fit into our Mid-Century niche. A little background on this artistic style - Chinoiserie represents the western fascination with asian iconography. Often found in the maximalist residences of "high society", this style can also gel nicely with Mid-Century Modern furniture. The overall affect makes your space more free-spirited and less pretentious (in my opinion).


Chesterfields sold individually at $250 each.
Henredon dresser $375
Hand painted Chinese screen $175
Blue Poofs $50
