The Hang Out Coffee Table

With its minimal and organic shape crafted from wood, fine metal and fabrics, the Hang Out coffee table has a classic Scandinavian expression.

Slender legs attached to the curved table top give the Hang Out a light and airy profile.

Underneath the table top, a special bag is suspended across three legs like a hammock. The stylish two-sided leather and textile bag is perfect for storing your remote controls, magazines, books and other small items.

  The Reader and A Conversation Piece armchairs add warmth, style and comfort to your living space, inviting conversation with friends or an evening with a good book.

The Armchairs

The Reader armchair has been designed as a space to relax with a good book and a cup of coffee. The armchair’s special curved shell is inspired by traditional Danish crafting techniques and helps to reduce surrounding noise, offering a place of shelter and reflection. With its light form and bold organic curves, The Reader is a standout design piece in any room.

Meanwhile, A Conversation Piece is an armchair that encourages unwinding and having a conversation with friends. It is ideal for use in the living room, as a corner armchair or as part of an extra lounge area. Its comfortable shape also makes it suitable for the bedroom or as an extra armchair in a nursery. The armchair’s final look is extremely flexible as the interchangeable upholstery is easy to remove and update.

The Lighting

We also have an array of UMAGE lighting, from table lamps to hanging pendants. We’ll even assemble them in store for you, ready to take home!

7 Tips for Styling a Thanksgiving Table

Thanksgiving is less than a month away, and we’re here with 7 helpful tips for styling a festive dining table!

 Image: Pinterest

Image: Pinterest

1. Start with the perfect table!

Here at Legacy Modern, we have an incredible collection of dining sets in a variety of styles, sizes and finishes to fit your lifestyle and home. Come browse our collection, and save 20% off mid-century vintage dining sets through November 18!

3.jpg

2. Decide on a style.

Consider what feelings you want to evoke and what will best flow with your dining table and interior design. Would a rustic table setting hit the mark, or do you want something more modern or elegant?

3. Choose your colors and textures.

Decide on a main color for your display, as well as 1-2 accent colors. We love using a neutral color, such as white or ivory, as the main color and adding in pops of black and copper or rust for a palette that works with any style.

And don’t be afraid to play with texture! Combine textures and materials to add interest to your Thanksgiving table design. We love mixing copper, linens and rustic woods with crystal glassware. Varying your textures and colors adds depth, warmth and interest!

4. Add a special touch to each place setting.

Whether it’s a mini pumpkin or a handcrafted name card, be creative in how to dress up your dinnerware. Fun tip: Spray maple or oak leaves with gold paint, then write names in with a permanent marker or paint pen.

5. Be mindful of centerpieces.

There’s nothing worse than trying to have a conversation when your view is blocked by a candelabra or giant flower display! Remember that the best part of the gathering is connecting with those you love. Keep centerpieces low (such as groupings of small candles or pumpkins) and leave the taper candles for other areas of your home, or for in-between place settings where they will not block your guests.

6. Bring the outdoors in.

A touch of nature always inspires festive feelings and adds warmth to your Thanksgiving display. Fill in your table setting with dried oak and maple leaves, twigs and pine cones for a simple and beautiful touch.

7. Set the table the night before your gathering.

Rushing around at the last minute creates chaos and stress, when you should be enjoying your loved ones as they arrive! Staging your table the evening before allows you plenty of time to play with options and reconfigure as needed until you arrive at the perfect table setting. Besides, you’ll be busy in the kitchen on Thanksgiivng Day!

Featured Item of the Week!

 

We have the perfect credenza for you!

According to wiki....

"Jentique is a brand of furniture made by Jentique Furniture Ltd. Started in the 1930s by the well-known toymaker Geoffrey Bowman Jenkins and his wife Edith, the company was based in Dereham, Norfolk."

"Along with similar cabinetmakers (e.g. Meredew), the design of Jentique furniture followed the tastes of the times and the company did particularly well during the 1950s and 1960s, tapping into the hugely popular mid-century modern style inspired by Danish design."

Get to Know Johannes Andersen

 

Who was Johannes Andersen?

on-the-blog.png
 
 

According to Vintage Home Boutique....

"Andersen was born in Aarhus, Denmark in 1903. He apprenticed as a cabinet maker, becoming certified in 1922. By the mid-1930s, when Danish modern design rose in popularity beyond Denmark, he opened his own workshop."

 photo by:  bukowskis.com

photo by: bukowskis.com

"Scandinavian furniture was known for its distinctive shapes, flowing contours, and “restrained chic.” (Scandinavian Style) Andersen certainly followed this aesthetic in his designs. Looking at his work, it is also easy to see the influences of the culture and environment that surrounded him. The hallmarks of the Scandinavian ethos are present, but interpreted in a way that is Andersen’s alone."

Currently on the floor, we have this beautiful dining table designed by the man himself! 

This quality Danish table is from the 1950s and extends up to 94.5 inches! Great for parties and everyday use!
