Paging Bob, Carol, Ted, and Alice: The funkiest bed I’ve ever seen—a large round vintage number that converts to an oval—is on display at Uber Modern, a great little store in the burgeoning Grand Ave. design district (of COURSE I forgot to get a photo of it; you’ll just have to go see for yourself). I was there for a little holiday cheer (Brandon, the owner, poured champagne into cool vintage glasses he’s selling) and fell hard for this bar cart. There’s also wonderful glassware, pony-skin end tables/benches, and tons more authentic midcentury treasures.
