I bought the same table at an antique shop in Hudson, NY. Do you have any information on it?
Thank you.

Where did that light fixture come from - It looks like that light fixture can be repositioned when Leaves are added to the table to keep it centered. Where can I get one of these.

where can i find that floor to ceiling lamp if still made? if not, is there a company that still makes them? - ever since i saw my friend's mid-century modern spring-loaded floor to ceiling lamp that she inherited from her grandparents, i have wanted to find one like it. i never seem to see them in antique stores.... perhaps because they are so unique and, thus, always sell right away. does anyone know if these are still made anywhere? and if not, is there a "technical" name for this style lamp so that i can google it or search for one on e-bay or craigslist? i must have one!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This playful fixture, called the Bübingarang, was created for Policky and Hagin's own dining room. The boomerang shape pays homage to mid-century modern style, and it is crafted from a beautiful African rosewood called bubinga (hence the name of the fixture). The piece shows us a lot about the way Policky and Hagin collaborate. They brainstorm together, come up with a sketch, and Policky builds the fixture while Hagin scouts fabrics and makes the lampshades.A conversation I had with Policky and Hagin showed me much about the way they design.Policky: One of the neat things about this piece is the balance. When designing the rod, I had to balance the weight so as not to put pressure on the junction box...Hagin: He studied physics.Me: I was just thinking he must have a degree in engineering.Hagin: He has that rare right brain/left brain balance.Me: I was thinking that as soon as he said "junction box."The point is, there is a lot more to each piece than one notices at first. The Bübingarang ($920) is a piece that Inspired Wire offers as part of their current product line, which they are hoping to develop in addition to the custom pieces they craft.

Table and chairs are mid-60s originals that we purchased from two different mid-century dealers. The table came from Design Modern in Vancouver B.C. (www.bydesignmodern.com), the chairs from Just L furniture in Littleton NH (http://www.facebook.com/MidModLiving). We recovered the chairs.
