  • Modern architecture is characterized by simplification of form and creation of ornament from the structure and theme of the building. The first variants were conceived early in the 20th century.

Lane Coffee Table
Lane Coffee Table
I found this Lane coffee table from the Acclaim series at Goodwill for only $11.99. It is in pretty horrible shape but I found refinishing instructions specifically for this line of tables at jetsetmodern.com. I already have a coffee table that I like but the venire is chipping off of it and that isn't really something I can repair. These Lane tables are solid oak around the edges so chipping isn't really a problem. It should look nice once I refinish it.

Coffee table and armchair
Coffee table, armchair, lamp, sideboard are all thrifted. I love these cushions; it and the NZ map cushion in other shots were from limitedvintage.co.nz and are made from old woolen blankets. 'Aroha' means 'love' in Maori.
