Here we have an interesting example of the Mexican Equipale pigskin leather chair family. It is constructed of rustic bent and roughly shaped wood splints and covered with leather. Ours has upholstered cushions which are in good condition but perhaps unnecessary from an aesthetics viewpoint.
It is in good condition and still structurally sound. Approximately 32 inches wide, 30 1/2 deep and 27 1/2 tall.

An interesting antiqued or pickled pine side table set. Each one is composed of a base, separate top and thick glass slab. They are massive and heavy and are very reminiscent of old mooring bollards but are actually contemporary pieces.
Handmade in France.
Fully assembled they measure 25 inches tall and are 20 3/4 inches square.
$350 for the set.

This is a bit different. Enough so that we walked by it until some enterprising volunteer pointed out that it was made from leather scraps (thanks!). It’s actually pretty cool and even better it’s reversible. It measures 98 x 122 inches and is in good condition.
Available at our Tualatin location: 8380 SW Nyberg St, open seven days from 10 am to 4 pm.

It’s big and blue, hence the clever title for this post. No worries though, I won’t hurt myself through self-congratulatory back patting.
Anyway . . . This is an interesting storage piece. It has 14 drawers over a storage cabinet with shelf that is accessed by two doors.
It is 38 1/2 inches wide, 15 1/2 inches deep and 55 1/5 inches tall. It’s a bit on the heavy side but manageable by two or more people.

If it weren’t for the need to make a living and animalistic requirements for social interaction at even the barest level I’d probably be a an eccentric hermit.
If so you could bet there’s be a lot of reading going on and a table like this would be essential. It’s a comfortable middle size (40 1/2 by 30 inches, 32 inches tall at most) and the top is sloped to hold the material you’re working on at a comfortable angle. This slope provides the secondary benefit of ensuring that one’s piles of books can only get so tall before tumbling off, thereby providing an automatic desktop cleaning service.
It also has two spacious drawers for papers, writing utensils, measuring devices, compass dividers and other arcana that might be needed by an eccentric recluse.
In good condition.

Long and lean, this farm style table is a great piece. Perfect for separating warring siblings but skinny enough that one could plan a sneak attack upon the best bite* of your spouse’s dinner.
Given the materials and construction techniques of this table I suspect it is less than 20 years old. It is in very good ‘rustic’ condition and measures 30 inches tall, 24 1/2 inches across and 78 1/2 inches long.
*The best bite is that part that of any meal that is the perfect mix of all your favorite parts. Inevitably this is also the part which will be consumed if you offer to share “a bite” of your food. In my experience this is not usually malicious, but with the right furniture and proper planning it could be.

This is a great old piece. It likely started life as a wardrobe but shelves have been added to make it a storage cabinet where you can conveniently hide the stuff you need to store but don’t want to look at.
It is in good condition and measures 68 1/2 inches tall, 38 3/4 inches wide and 17 1/2 inches deep.

I’d guess that this case once bore a thin skin of cloth but if so it is long gone. This is actually to our advantage because it is striking looking and would make a great decorative piece.
It measure 34 inches wide, 21 inches deep and when closed it is about 11 inches thick. It is in OK shape there are two longitudinally split boards and one of the leather handles is broken. Unfortunately we don’t have the key for the locks either.
