Fresh Finds, the newest additions to the Modern Love gallery:

A rare execution of Robsjohn-Gibbings' elegant sabre leg lounge chair
for Widdicomb, in original and beautifully worn creamy white leather.

A classic Sheaf of Wheat coffee table base. Despite its Italian origin,
this design became the epitome of Parisian chic when both Coco Chanel
and Yves Saint Laurent utilized them in their own homes.

Usually found in gilt steel, this uncommon example features what appears
to be a nickel-plated finish, reminiscent of Warren Platner's similarly shaped
coffee table for Knoll.

A beautiful work from California Modernist potter Robert Maxwell,
protoge of David Cressey, with whom he shared a Venice studio in
the early 1960's.

This example features a scalloped and freeform edge, with a central
surface of crushed and molten Blenko glass in 2 tones.

An Eames Armshell Chair for Herman Miller in rare Turquoise fiberglass,
with production limited to contract orders only.

An Eames Armshell Chair for Herman Miller in rich and organic Olive Green Dark fiberglass.

A beautiful work from an unknown American studio, featuring sculpted
brass detailing and tapering dowels of solid walnut. Atop the central
walnut post is a white laminate top finished with a bevelled walnut edge.
Materials and craftsmanship are premium throughout.

A fine Italian minimalist trinket box crafted in polished translucent alabaster stone.

All via the new Modern Love.
