Flashback Vintage Modern is a small shop with lots of atomic, mid century and danish style stuff. We quickly learned that the proprietor, Loraine, is not only from Northern Virginia but also lived for a time only a few miles from our current home in Annandale - the small-world law proves true once again! After a few minutes in the shop, I was wishing I had my truck. If I had, I would be bringing home a lot of stuff. As it is I had to settle for a great danish teak ottoman that should match up very well with a couple of Selig Z-chairs I haven't gotten around to writing about yet. Sorry for the tease. I'll get shots of the chairs and post them with the ottoman after I get back to the Uncle Atom Ranch.
Here are some shots of the other things now at Flashback. If you see a must have, shoot me a message and I can give you Loraine's contact information.
A great Heywood Wakefield piece
There were two of these danish end tables with ceramic tile accents
This was my favorite of several really great lamps in the store - and obviously it's a Loraine favorite too, since it's not for sale. Loraine and I were guessing that since it hangs on the wall, it was probably meant to be used above a bed for reading. She has a red bulb in it, which gives the white shade a pink tone in one photo. Killer lamp!
More great lamp porn - sorry I didn't get photos of everything, there were several pole lamps and tension lamps that I forgot to shoot
This hutch is one of my favorites, and would be on the truck if I had the truck with me
Three of these Paul McCobb dining chairs (no idea what may have happened to a fourth to make a set) with nice original pink vinyl were priced at $95 each - they look very similar to the construction of my wrought-iron, wood-armed sofa, don't you think?
I've never found any markings on the sofa, but now I suspect it may be a McCobb piece. I'll have to learn more about that guy.
This great desk was another piece that was hard to walk away from
