New stock here!

…Some vintage sofas

Ben managed to hunt down a great range of sofas and armchairs on his last furniture finding excursion to Denmark – including pieces designed by Hans Wegner, leather stouby sofas and timber-framed sofas by Ole Wanscher. (I know – how did he squeeze them all in?!)

These are just two of the vintage sofas that arrived in our last shipment… just to wet your moozy-day appetite….

SP2013_11July-0690 SP2013_11July-0669

Its a 3-seater sofa designed by Peter Hvidt and Orla Molgaard and it’s classically simple and understated. With original charcoal fabric it’s a really elegant piece.

Below is another vintage 3-seater sofa that has recently arrived to squarepeg – designed by Andreas Hansen in 1979 it’s also a danish classic in black leather and beech.SP2013_11July-0621-1 SP2013_11July-0611

 

I think we have a sofa for you to love. And one thing is for certain when you buy a piece from us – its an original. It’s authentic – every single piece of furniture at squarepeg. Don’t you want to fight the fakes? Sit on something real? Come and find it (and fall in love).

What are you looking for?

A new range of mid-century furniture at squarepeg home…

Some customers at squarepeg are purists. They love danish modern design and are collecting pieces that they fall in love with that melt their purist hearts. Others have more eclectic tastes – they might be searching for a quirky piece, a piece with a difference, with personality.  The common ground for all these people is a love of something a little unusual, or special.  This same desire draws us to hand select authentic vintage pieces. Attached are some pictures of our latest collection on the floor at squarepeg. We think we have something for both the purists and the eclectic sorts out there!


A mahogany dining set in immaculate condition designed by Ole Wanscher. Its an extendable table with six matching dining chairs.


A rare shelving and desk system in rosewood designed by Omann Jun. Consisting of two separate book shelves (either side) and a central desk area that folds away, its in perfect condition.


Just in are two matching rosewood bedside tables (both with two drawers).  Some things are hard to come by and then just don’t seem to hang around…including this vintage danish chair in original upholstery (it sold today).

Just back from restoration is this extendable dining table designed by Johannes Andersen in rosewood.

And lastly this mid-century storage system from the UK provides the perfect elegant answer for storage.

hand crafted…

…Local work on show at squarepeg

I guess its fair to say that here at squarepeg we really have two true loves – mid-century furniture and beautifully crafted furniture that’s locally made. You know my love of mid-century so today I thought I would post some pictures of the tables we are stocking that have been locally crafted. The elegant simplicity of all these pieces is just so hard to beat.

Rick Knopke has been working his craft for many years now and squarepeg currently stocks two of his tables.  Both coffee tables are made from a wood veneer on marine ply with a demountable stainless steel base. The tables are priced at $1, 950 each.

Also on the floor is piece by local Freo craftsman Lewis Waters. Lewis’s designs are all about simplicity, durability and innovative construction techniques. The coffee table is handcrafted from Australian wattle ($790).


Our last local that we also love is Adam Cruikshank – its his table in beech that is truly devine ($4,900).

We think there is a lot to be said for furniture that is hand crafted. For one thing, long after you have forgotten how much you paid for a piece, you will still remember what it is that you fell in love with. And it will last a lifetime. Or two or even three.

And its locally made.
