Irony: When I attempt to research furniture and accessories in the Major Crimes/Sharon Raydor world, and all I find are my own, earlier posts about previous identifications and discoveries.
Things I need help definitively IDing:
- amazing hallway table between Rusty's room and the bathroom
- Sharon's home office desk (wood with metal & 5 drawers) & side table
- Sharon's branchy looking reddish rectangular light in dining room on shelf
- round table in Sharon's bedroom
- orange & brown living room furniture pieces: sofa, chair
- bent wood (or metal?) curled/stretched statue in Sharon's LAPD office
This hall table. What is and who made this slender table? Is it formed metal or highly polished wood? Also, the first season arrangement of objects (seen on right) is better than later changes (pictured on left). And is that blue tape on the floor?
This gold accent, three-shelf side table. Is that polished dark wood, marble? Glass? Has a small rectangular detail to middle shelf. For the longest time I thought it was a cart--but this picture finally let me see it's just sitting on feet, no casters.
In my life I repurpose so many furniture pieces to update them and let them live in new ways--this gold cart/table has that feel. Like maybe it was just a metal stand that had the glossy dark shelves added later? Impossible to say without more info, and I'm just guessing. Easy piece to repurpose for a show, though.
This branchy rectangular light on top of the Expedit shelf. There are never any good shots of this area of Sharon's dining room. God only knows what's in those shelves. I've taken several stabs at this entire area in the past, and have made some progress--but that light eludes me. And I like that light. It casts gorgeous shadows within and without. Wonderful soft color too.
I can't tell you how many round, tri-legged tables with tapering legs, triangular bases, drawers I've looked at. To no avail. Close, but no cigar.
These three living room pieces. The sofa & two chairs in varying shades of burnt orange and brown.
Because I've never found these pieces, it's still my working theory that they could all have had the upholstery tacks added later to tie them visually together--or that one piece may have come with the tacks, and the others were treated to match. Could be that they ALL came that way--but it's an easy way to take different furniture items in different colors, that have a similar 'feel' or width--and add tacks to make them seem more of a kind than they actually are.
This flowing figure. I still can't tell if it's bent wood or metal. Or coated resin. I'm endlessly frustrated not to have been able to find anything similar to this. It looks like a human figure, gently abstracted and elongated--that's leaning forward, in a tucked position: as though they're stretching toward their toes, or are flexing mid-dive.
Because of Sharon's love of dance, I've searched as dance, yoga, dive, stretch, lean, etc. Oh, all the hideous art I've sifted through. I have to take long breaks from these searches because they're frustrating, and in some cases, after looking at so much ugly, I need to recharge.
Of all of them, the one I most personally care about is the crazy hallway table that alternatively looks like a branch with leaves and an abstract spine. That's the sole item I would love to own. It totally resonates with both the sculptor and designer in me. My fear is that it's a one-off.
YOU would amaze and delight me if you found that hallway table.
Also, this purse. Is it hand-made or off the rack?
