"Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else." —Margaret Mead
Here at Pamono, we pride ourselves on encouraging folks to embrace their individuality and to choose designs that reflect their own special tastes. Who cares what everyone else is doing, right? That said, sometimes it's fun to look for patterns and see what emerges. We went ahead and had a peek at the data to discover which vintage pieces you all were loving the most in 2018 in the 1-2k range. I gotta say, you guys are crushing it when it comes to selecting handsomely crafted and jazzy designs that offer a lot of bang for the buck.
In the category of armchairs and lounge chairs under 2K, top-selling designers included Bruno Mathsson, Grete Jalk, Jindřich Halabala, Geoffrey Harcourt, and Pierre Paulin, while the top manufacturers were Artifort, Knoll, and Fritz Hansen. We are excited to share that velvet is still very popular, especially in bold colours!
When it comes to sideboards and buffets, our top designers are H. W. Klein, Ib Kofod Larsen, Alfred Hendrickx, and Victor Wilkins. Our top manufacturers include McIntosh, Hundevad, and G-Plan. Simple lines, solid craftsmanship, and lasting materials. That's what makes pieces these such a good buy.
Now on to couches and sofas: The most popular designers are Mogens Hansen and Vico Magistretti, and the most popular manufacturers are Cassina and de Sede. Midcentury modern design and leather upholstery will seemingly never go out of style.
Illuminating the top of the ceiling light category, you'll find designers like Gaetano Sciolari and Johannes Hammerborg alongside manufacturers like Vitosi , Stilnovo, Mazzega , and Fog & Mørup. Looks like cosmic forms will forever capture our imaginations.
For coffee and side tables, our top designers are Niels O. Møller, Hans Olsen, Louis van Teeffelen, Peter Ghyczy, and Knut Hesterberg . High performing manufacturers include J. L. Møllers , McIntosh, and Omann Jun. MVP Awards go to pieces that combine brass and glass and feature artistically sculptural bases.
Wrapping up our review of bestsellers in the 1-2K range, you find floor lamps designed by Goffredo Reggiani, Gae Aulenti, and Achille Castiglioniand produced by Artemide, Stilnovo, and Stilux . Extra points awarded for lamps that double as house plants. Super whimsical and super popular right now.
