Wow is this Mid-century Modern snack set cute!!!! As I go through the process of hunting out the best in vintage Mid-century items I am always ready to learn something new. Today I discovered Dan Baird glassware. His designs are bold, high contrasting explosions of color with bright red crowns set in the middle of black convex glass plates!! You cannot go wrong with this set on your table for the holiday entertaining season. This set is a fine example of the L.J. Houze convex glass company and probably produced in the 50's. Houze Glass was in business for 102 years in Point Marion, Ohio. The company was sold in 1954 and closed its doors in 2004. Dan Baird was one of several artists Houze produced glass pieces for. for additional information on Houze Glass check this article Memories of Houze glass continue to shine.

As most of my family knows I really don't have a favorite style. I just like style. This old Empire sofa hasn't seen it's potential for the 21st century. Overall it's in good usable condition but the previous owner tried to reupholster it herself. With all of these minor flaws and a little creative ambition and this old sofa could fit well with any decor. Imagine a little work on the wood and some bright new fabric and it becomes that modern piece everyone will talk about. Imagine it in a different fabric and it becomes that cozy cottage chic sofa that everyone wants to snuggle up on in the coming moths. Or leave it the way it is and admire it for the way it was. No matter which style you prefer this sofa is available for sale at a price that you can use your imagination and make it what you want, in your style. it's scheduled to go on sale this evening.
