Grown-up furniture

This Saturday Mr. Z and I will be hittin' the road up to Connecticut (again) to pick up our dresser! So I might sound a little too excited about an old piece of furniture, but this is no ordinary piece. Believe me, because we've been looking everywhere for that *perfect* thing, scouring every vintage store within our vicinity. We figured that there are so many great pieces of well made furniture from the past that getting a new one made wouldn't be as special. We have been especially drawn to Danish furniture from the 50's-60's. You really can't beat the quality and construction. Every little tiny detail was thought out, even matching the grain of wood pieces! Whoa... I don't think even I can be that meticulous.
We stumbled upon this amazing furniture store last weekend during our visit to my family's cottage on Twin Lakes, CT. I can't believe I never stopped in here, tho' I've driven by it many times. Great Barrington Antiqes Center had a lot of Mid-century modern furniture as well older antiques all in fantastic condition. Here are some of my other favorite pieces...
