  • Ric Emmett wrote this book as a sequel to his first Gomo book:  The Adventures of Gomo the Rubber Duck which was published in 2012.   Starting Gomo for President in 2012, he set it aside while he finished his book on Amercian Art Deco Furniture which was published in 2015.   All the notes he made for this book as well as what photos went with what text were very clearly marked by Ric so both Iza Emmett and Amanda MacMaster were able to bring the book to life!

  • This is an antique Art Nouveau etagere in bamboo with chinoiserie detail decorating each shelf surface. It is very good condition, with a minor chip here and there in the chinoiserie, as shown. This can be purchased alone or with one or both of our other bamboo pieces to make a suite.

  • What's the difference between vintage and antique?
    This is a question that is important to us at Modernism.com because our dealers use these words often. We are here to clear up any confusion!
    The simple definitions:
    VINTAGE: The word VINTAGE describes an item that is at least 20 years+ old. 
    ANTIQUE: The word ANTIQUE describes an item that is 100 years old or older.

  • When Marjorie Goldman of Piano Nobile told me she was designing "Florida Everglades Wallpaper" I tried to imagine what she was thinking.   Little did I know how excited I would be when I saw the first samples:  Whimsical designs inconrporating the Everglades' birds and flowers set on backgrounds that emulate the various colors that form the backdrop for Everglades wildlife.   Marjoire tells me she grew up going to the 'Glades and was fascinated by everything she saw.
