Clean, Simple, Classic - For Your Modern Man

Leland Little Auction June 14 & 15  


Break-ups and make-ups, good times and bad; the one thing you can bank on is dear old Dad. Thank him for being your shoulder to cry on, the guy who set your curfew, and your own personal ATM. This Father's Day create a space that is simple but classic just for dad. It will become his new in-home retreat.


Friday and Saturday, June 14 & 15 The Summer Catalogue Auction at Leland Little Auction and Estate Sales, Ltd. you'll find some inspiring mid century modern pieces just waiting to fill your newly modernistic room Barstools designed for Dad.


Four Bertoia Barstools - Designed by Harry Bertoia in 1952 for Knoll. Stools are in excellent condition and made of chrome plated steel with brown leather cushions. If you're part of the 'cult following' of Bertoia chairs, then you don't want to miss these.


Harry Bertoia (1915 - 1978) was known for his designed chairs made by Knoll in the post-war period. He displayed a unique stroke of genius with his patented Diamond Chair for Knoll in 1952. Bertoia was an inventor of form and of furniture design with his introduction of a new material: he turned industrial wire rods into a design icon. His awards include the craftsmanship medal from the American Institute of Architects, as well as AIA's Gold Medal.


Mid-Century Lucite Chaise Lounge - This circa 1960 chaise is quite an unusual combination of Eames Lucite meets Kagan and provides quite a comfortable statement. Clear furniture is perfect for when you want a sense of visual lightness in your space - and when don't you want that?


By the 1960s Lucite was often found in furniture. Vladimir Kagan, Charles Hollis Jones and Gaetano Sciolari are just some of the designers who are well-known for their work in Lucite with its durable and chic look.


Like so many other things, Lucite could have been totally ruined by the '80s, Vegas, and the famous stripper Eames red shoes. But thankfully today Lucite has made a big comeback in interiors of varied styles.


Charles and Ray Eames, Seven DAX Chairs - Molded plastic, zinc coated metal and naugahyde in bright red, each with Herman Miller, Zeeland Michigan label, manufactures date 1971.


Charles and Ray Eames, Seven Easy Chairs - Including one DAX chair and six swivel chairs in black molded plastic, black naugahyde and zinc coated metal, each with Herman Miller label, circa 1970. Eames black


The DAX armchair was designed in 1948. It belongs to a group of shell chairs and  armchairs with a variety of bases which Charles and Ray Eames entered for an international competition for "Low-Cost Furniture Design". In cooperation with the Herman Miller Furniture Company, the first series of 2,000 armchair shells was manufactured.


Plycraft Plycraft Lounge Chair and Ottoman - In teak, black naugahyde and chrome plated metal, swivel armchair with ottoman. If good design is a balance of aesthetics and utility, the craft peaked in the years between 1945 and 1970. This era of modernism hit the design sweet spot: functional beauty. This chair is a tribute to the mid-century modern movement as both a historical milestone and a living ideal, reflected in today's best furniture, architecture, and design.    


George Nakashima, Cherry Sideboard - (Japanese-American, 1905-1990), pegged and dovetailed sideboard construction, two sliding slatted pandus cloth doors open to reveal a three drawer and adjustable shelf compartment to the right and two adjustable shelves.  George Nakashima furniture making received many awards from the AIA and other prestigious institutions during his lifetime. This sideboard is no exception to his beautiful craftsmanship.


Now throw that old Lazy-Boy out to the curb and start your bidding on some modern furniture that will make any room pop, and make Pop a happy man!

Chicken Fried - Zac Brown Band at Walnut Creek, June 21


How Do You Like Your Chicken Fried?  When the Zac Brown Band played the Lincoln Theatre in Zac Brown May, 2009, relatively few people had heard of them.  Now 55 Award Nominations later (including last year's Grammy Award for best country album), they're just getting warmed up. Driven by jaw-dropping flat-picking skills, great songwriting, harmony, and a dynamic live show, Zac Brown's audiences have become fanatical and will get their next local chance to see the show on Friday, June 21 at the Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion at Walnut Creek. ZBB's toe tappin' single, "Chicken Fried", went from a barroom anthem to a bone-a-fide country hit and was followed by 8 more number one singles on the Billboard country charts. Clearly, there is more to the Zac Brown Band than your typical horse poop and gunpowder country act. By far.


Breaking All The Rules:  Most successful performers and bands get type-cast and stereotyped. Not so with the Zac Brown Band as they play a multitude of music styles including southern rock, country, reggae,Zac Brown Band   and folk. Close your eyes and you would swear you are listening to the Marshall Tucker Band, Bob Marley, the Band, and Jimmy Buffet at different spots in the show. Their bearded, beanie clad leader is adamant about focusing on the vocals and harmony first; then fitting in the music accompaniment.  That is why beautiful ballads like "Colder Weather" and "Goodbye in Her Eyes" fit in seamlessly along with "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" and "Toes". All band members are extremely talented and are showcased during the live show. This show is Not to be missed.


Zac Brown Band: Friday, June 21 7:00pm, Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion at Walnut Creek; Tickets; Alternative Tickets - Allgoodseats

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of  The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
