It’s been a week since Red Chair Market’s first Designer Tag Sale and I’ve been meaning to showcase some of the other outstanding vendors of the event. I’d love to start with my neighbor across the aisle, Retrospective. As soon as I walked into the Shoal Crossing Event Center, I was agog at some of Retrospective owner Heather Banks’ amazing mid-century and vintage furniture. Her reimagined and reupholstered furniture is to die for, and to possess some of her curated pieces is to live quite happily in mid-century splendor. Take a look at what’s available via her Etsy store:

Mid-Century Danish Modern Dining/Accent Chairs, $165/ea (3 available).

Side view.

Gotta love this geometric mid-century upholstery!


Chrome Mid-Century/1970s Puzzle Bucket Chair, $450 (1 available).

Aren’t you wishing you’d seen these when multiples were available?

Pair of Vintage Mid-Century Chrome and Upholstered Occasional Lounge Chairs, $950.

I have some of this fabric too–pretty sweet stuff from Bolt Fabrics.

The pair.

Pearsall, Kagan Style Walnut Framed Atomic Upholstered Lounge Chair, $550.

Three-quarter view.

Love the texture of this upholstery.

Vintage Mid-Century Retro Marble Topped Coffee Table with Turquoise Painted Legs, $395.

Kill me with your turquoise legs, coffee table!

Top detail.

Mid-Century Modern Danish Rosewood Upholstered Dining Chairs, $1,800/set of 4.

Love the lines on these chairs.

Delicious fabric.

Danish Mid-Century Modern Teak Sideboard Credenza, $1650.

So cool…

…so functional.

Hollywood Regency Turquoise Blue Upholstered Loveseat, $650.

Beautiful blend of pretty and fuss-free.

If you live in Austin, Heather’s game for setting up in-person showings and pickups, but if you live outside of the ATX, don’t fret–Retrospective ships worldwide. For more information and to see what else Heather has available, visit the Retrospective Austin Etsy Shop.

Small World Dept.: Two years ago, I posted a plea for votes for Heather’s attempt to win a porch makeover via Making it Lovely (which she won). Keep up with Heather’s remodeling projects on her blog, Brady Bunch Remodel.
