When you first step into Founddesign, you immediately get a sense that this store is a labour of love. It’s not really like a store – it looks and feels more like a space where some people who are passionate about mid-century furniture collect and display all their cool stuff.
There is lots of teak in this store. All the items are ‘used’, but they are in impeccable condition. And amazingly, they don’t smell of cigarette smoke, given everyone smoked their faces off in the 50’s and 60’s.
I wonder what kind of plants were originally grown in these planter-lamps…
Coolest sectional ever and I’m pretty sure it came from I Dream of Jeannie’s genie bottle. If you look closely, you can see that the blue painting on the right hand side looks pregnant – wonderful!
More lamps and desks…
This ashtray is enough to make you want to take up smoking again.
We got a great cleaning tip while we were there – dust with a dryer sheet and it will keep the dust away longer. It works!
