Check out these great Mid-Century modern pieces by Chelsea Textiles.  Their simple style is classic, but the use of gorgeous blue lacquer is what makes them stand out.  The chair below would be great in a bedroom or a living area, as it could easily bounce between formal and casual.

The credenza below is hand painted and hand made from solid wood.

This table is great for small spaces.  Notice that the chairs fit all the way under the table, and it comes in 2 space-saving sizes:  41″ with 3 chairs or 47″ with 4 chairs.
