Cathode Blue: Vintage Shop of Curiosities

Cathode Blue is an online shop specializing in vintage décor, hosted on Etsy. The collection is best described as a collection of curiosities, ranging from the chic Hive Modular Shelving Unit (shown above) to old soda bottles. The man behind Cathode Blue is Chris Ferebee, who claims to have a collection of over 60 vintage thermoses from the 1930s - 1960s! Read more for details on Cathode Blue.

Ferebee himself designed the Hive Modular Shelving Unit. This piece has won some notable design awards, including the Good Design 2000 Award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design. Cathode Blue can be hit or miss, but definitely worth browsing because when it's a hit, it's out of the ballpark.

At $6,000.00, the Hive Modular Shelving Unit is a pretty penny. And he has only three left. Maybe he'll give you a discount if you offer him a thermos.
