An ongoing blog following a young married couple as they renovate their railroad apartment in Brooklyn, New York and a crazy falling down farmhouse up in the Catskills. Both husband and wife work full-time jobs each day, so almost all of their projects will be squeezed into any free second each night and every weekend. Hence the name: After-Dinner Design, though come to think of it, maybe we should change it to "So Tired Design"...)

Not wasting any time here!
John and I drove out to Red Hook yesterday afternoon and met up with mid-century modern furniture dealer/extraordinaire, David Jaffe from Equity Modern, to scope out the glorious marble tulip table I was hoping to buy for my office. It's as beautiful in person as it is in theory, and I readily loaded it into my friend's borrowed truck. (Thanks Friend!)
Not too shabby for a 30-minute trip to Red Hook!
Because David is great and I'm a cunning (unrelenting) negotiator, I also ended up coming home with two fabulous plexi-glass/lucite eiffel chairs, two nutty reproduction sputnik lights, and a couple of cute miniature classic chairs.
What's not to like about these tiny chairs? Nothing but charming!
My plan is to make a big push getting the office assembled and organized today, and hopefully I'll have lots to show for my efforts by tomorrow. Too exciting! I can't decide what I like most: getting organized, designing a new space, or shopping for mid-century furniture!
