1950's Boomerang Table



Whew, she's mine!

I needed another table like I needed a hole in my head, but I simply could not pass this beauty up! It's MUCH more retro than the two asian-style chow tables I planned on using in the living room.

I needed something turquoise to go with the turquoise in my "new" barkcloth curtains, and this came along.

Thank you vintage gods!

  3. That b*tch better have a third hairpin leg!

    The seller has low feedback and doesn't seem to sell very often. I have my fingers crossed this will get here in good shape...

  8. *gasp!* How unique - Two boomerangs in one! Does the bottom one swivel out or is it one solid piece?

    Good luck w/ the delivery, keeping fingers crossed that all goes smoothly. I had one last year where the seller upped the shipping after I won the item, took forever to deliver it, then had my name address and phone ALL wrong so the shipping service couldn't find me.... grrrrr!

  9. Yeah I just got the lamp I won last week with $12.50 owing. I should have sent it back and refused the extra. Oh well. So that soured the deal (unless they pay the difference, good luck to me for getting it).

    I'm nervous as a cat in a dog kennel about this.... lol...

    Excited, hoping it arrives and all is well.

    if not, I am swearing off eBay lol...

  11. Swearing off eBay, hmmm? Liar liar pants on fire! Just like I did, right. Awesome table. Hey, since my dad just lost HIS leg, that means you'll be getting that third leg FOR SURE. Whoops, sick humor, but actually he'd think it was funny (and yes, I got my sense of humor from him).

  15. Ha ha and as always, thanks for the replies. I had a bit of a panic attack at the cost. Not terrible, but I always sweat the pricier things.

    Bought it on eBay and got a reasonable price because the seller did NOT use any keywords such as "boomerang" or "Eames" or "Hairpin legs", it was only advertised as "1950's Table" nothing else. So I think fewer people saw it.

    This is why spending hours searching eBay pays off... Sometimes...

    I'll be thrilled when it arrives safe and sound.

  18. There's one of these exactly the same on ebay right now for $125,000 or best offer. Awesome table by the way! My wife and I are very envious.

  19. Wow, I just checked, and you are right! No way is he going to get that much. Heck, you can make one for $100 =/-

    I suspect they are reproductions, bought mine fully aware of that possibility. I did google to see if they were current repros and found none, so it may have been a 1980's repro.

    It's TOO "classic" to be an original 1950's design. ;)
