Art + Design + HOUSE: Newburgh

A Hang-It-All is on a wall (in the hall).

The new resident has taken up occupancy in the hallway. Doesn’t it look perfect next to Elisabeth’s amazing poster?

I’m looking forward to the long holiday weekend! Saturday will be very full: picking up the floor tiles for the bathroom (!!!), lunch with old friends, dinner with new friends. By Monday evening, I am determined to have curtains sewn for the living room. The fabric has been sitting around for months, but I’ve been procrastinating because I don’t feel like ironing. Isn’t that silly? I just hate ironing, especially huge pieces of fabric.

    i am in love with your credenza with the marble top! any tips on where to find something similar???

  • Reply Anna at D16 February 26, 2008 at 9:28 am

    Joanne, it’s a Knoll 4-Position credenza, designed by Florence Knoll in 1961. You can still buy them new (though the styling is slightly different — they no longer have sliding doors, and the pulls are now aluminum instead of leather), or you can buy a vintage one (try eBay, Craigslist, antique stores, etc.).

    Ours is vintage (probably from the early 70’s). We found it on Craigslist. The top had de-laminated, so we had a slab of 1/2″ marble cut to the fit. It’s not screwed on or anything, the weight is enough to keep it firmly in place.

    The total cost for ours (including the marble) was about $800. Quite a steal compared to the $7000+ we would have paid to buy one new!

    I was looking for inspiration and ideas for my hang it all rack that is going up in my new apartment. I LOVE the rug, where did you get that? I’m a year late, but what the hell, had to ask 😛

    Love your blog

    Nina: The rugs (it’s actually two, end-to-end) are from IKEA.
