Carl Chaffee travels the world buying mid-twentieth-century American furniture like silk couches, lacquer end tables, and ebonized wood cabinets from estate sales and antique suppliers, most of which is refurbished before hitting the sales floor of his Brooklyn store. Many items straddle the boundary between classic and kitschy. In addition to a tranquil Robsjohn-Gibbings cocktail table or a pair of white Guimard chairs, expect to find quirkier pieces, like a bowl glazed in gold, a lamp decorated with a gleaming underwater scene, or an ornate ceramic mirror framed by carvings of vines, flowers, and sea shells. The collection is constantly in flux, and though most sales go to the trade, general consumers are welcome.
