    I was thinking about traveling to deifferent countries and start collecting and buying vintage furniture that might’ve been misused and also artisan furniture, hire a few skilled people to fix them up and start seeling them in the U.S.
    Would this be a good idea?

    Luis – It’s such a good idea that there’s lots of people doing it. Check out my Vintage Furnishings links in the right hand column for starters. That isn’t to say there isn’t room for you to jump in, too. To succeed, I’d say you need a thorough knowledge of vintage furnishings so you can spot the deals and avoid the dogs. You’ll also need to know who you’re going to sell to and how you’re going to reach them. If your knowledge is limited, I’d suggest starting by specializing only in the few pieces you know best, then slowly expand your circle and fill-out your inventory. Immerse yourself in the market, visiting every dealer you can find, attending every auction and attending every show. Good luck and keep us posted!

    Your comment about
    Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s iconic Barcelona Chair, also known as the MR90-
    As with many modernist pieces, its simplicity makes it easy to duplicate. Many copies are of exceptionally high quality – some would argue even better than the real thing. This is a case where you can get a good quality knock-off at substantial savings.
    Where are these copies? Any around the Washington D.C. area that I could actually go see before buying?

    Can you tell me about Milos Baughman? Specifically his sling back chair or scoop back, I am not sure what the ones I have are called. They are in brown plaid and no makers mark. I put a magnet on the arm and it stuck, Is that common? Is that not chrome? Did he use a chrome plating is I guess what I am asking. Thanks for your help.

    Can you tell me if Milos Baughman used chrome plating or actual chrome? I have two scoop back chairs that I am sure, or was sure until I put a magnet on the chrome part and it stuck. The chairs look period with plaid fabric, no maker’s mark but I was told that was often the case. Thank you
