Planet Oranj is a Seattle-based mid-century antiques warehouse that also sells all its stock online. So if you live in Portland, Maine, instead of Oregon and are questing for a Franciscan Starburst gravy boat to complete your set, this is the place for you.

Planet Oranj’s range extends from circa 1930 art deco/moderne period up to the early 1980’s Memphis movement, with an inventory of vintage mid-century furniture, lighting, electronics, and functional and decorative objects.

A specialty is treasures from the forties through the early sixties, with tons of atomic age tableware, pottery, and sculpture, and some good-looking Scandinavian modern pieces. This is also the place to go if you’re looking for a vintage record player or radio.

Little of the furniture is identifiably from celebrity designers, but the site claims owner Erskine Charles Wood is a “populist at heart” and therefore offers “a wider array of price categories and design styles than many of our competitors.”

This wide range includes some rare treasures, including this Eames clock and funky fifties dinnerware from Blenko Glass and Dansk.

Clicking through the accessories and lighting categories is especially invigorating if, like us, you grew up in a house full of this stuff.

Here it all is, in fairly pristine collection, and priced to avoid collecting too much dust in the warehouse.

Which brings us to an important point:
Planet Oranj doesn’t actually have a retail space, but you can visit the warehouse by appointment.

Prices seem reasonable but can always be checked by searching for a particular item on eBay, and there’s always a Bargain Basement section with markdowns.
