    More Interesting Furniture

    Here's some more pieces I found.


    Edward Wormley Bench Made in 1948. 7' 3" long.


    "TL2" Table by Franco Albini for Poggi, manufactured in Italy in 1950. 5' 11" long.


    Charles Rohlfs Hall Chair 1901

    Definitely interesting. The Wormley bench looks like it would be too fragile to use. (I'm sure it's not...just looks that way.)

    I really like the first one. Kind of like a ladies deacon bench. the second piece reminds me of an ironing board. The hall chair looks incredibly uncomfortable. Kind of like my "time out" chair when I was a kid

    The Wormley bench has some nice lines that break the severity that a piece like that can have.

    The Albini table looks like a design that can fool you with its not-so-apparent strength.

    I agree with Bob about the chair, although I didn't have an official "time out" chair - wouldn't have been able to sit for a while anyway!

    I really like the TL2 Table by Franco Albini for some reason. Thanks for the post Dave.

    Glad you all liked at least some of those pieces. That table does look a bit like an ironing board but i think it would make a good table for a small apartment. i could see a modification of it to a coffee table maybe with a glass top.

    That Rohlf's hall chair seems typical of hall chairs of the period. Unwelcoming as a sitting place except maybe to tie your shoes but a prime place to hang coats and stack books.
