It's Fun to Buy From Forslund's Portfolio of Quaint American Furniture (1958 catalog)

By: Carl Forslund

Price: $20.00

Publisher: Grand Rapids, Michigan, Carl Forslund Inc.: 1958

Edition: 1958 Catalog

Seller ID: 3302

Condition: Very good condition


This catalog joins a list of furniture manufacturers and sellers from the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. For decades they had dominated the furniture industry, but the items in this catalog are not the furniture of the 50's with its obvious modernity. Forslund's was a retro trip through colonial and rustic furniture and accessories including dishes, lamps, carpet, and more. But even within the retro look there were choices -- quaint American, Forslund farmstead, plantation pine, and American mahogany. The catalog measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 104 pages. View more info

Price: $25.00

Publisher: New York city, The Museum of Modern Art: 1973

Seller ID: 3042

ISBN: 0870703145

Condition: Very good condition


This booklet is an important one for anyone interested in midcentury design and furniture. Even those who know little about it can often recognize an Eames chair. This booklet measures 7-1/2" x 10" and has 56 pages of photographs (color and black and white) plus a significant text. The only fault is one I came close to missing! The catalog is right beside me and it looks perfect. But in the "right" light you can see that someone used the cover as a desk and left behind light scratches. Otherwise it's pristine inside and out. The booklet was the first in a series of important groups of like ite... View more info

Fabulous! From its beautiful cover to its pages of splendid treasures this isn't your mother's auction catalog. Before the 80's the catalog was much smaller and covered with a drab colored wrapper and small black and white photographs inside. All that's gone now because these catalogs are like coffee table books in full color with great descriptions. They're dream books and bigger too. This one measures 8" x 11" with 242 lots. I am so enamored of them that I bought twelve last Saturday! View more info
