Too much time has passed since we last checked in with mid-century furniture aficionado Sam Kaufman, whose diminutive gallery on Beverly Boulevard is always stocked with the most wonderful things. Here he shares hia considerable knowledge to give us a bit of back story to a few of his most recent acquisitions.
Pair of Bar Stools by Henry Rosengren HansenDenmark, 1950s"These Danish bar stools, designed by Henry Rosengren Hansen for Brande Møbelfabrik, incorporate some really cool forms, with great craftsmanship and attention to detail. One's eye is particularly drawn to the way the tubular metal stretcher doubles as a footrest, and also balances the "woodiness" of the rest of the chair.These are of the most compelling bar stools I have ever seen. Lovely patina to the wood."
