Ernst Hahnbauer had been a private collector for years before deciding to open Bananas, a vintage furniture shop in close proximity to Vienna's famed Naschmarkt. One day he simply realized that he could make a living from his penchant for accumulating unusual and used pieces of furniture: enter Bananas. Mr. Hahnbauer's favorite era is the 50s, and he is particularly fond of Scandinavian and "no-name" designers, but by no means limits his offerings to these. The constantly changing stock at Bananas is best described as "a bit of everything" and generally represents a 1930-1980 range. A recent survey of goods included: multiple neatly nestling wooden table sets, a towering photo lamp from the 50s, fashion jewelry from the 60s and 70s, clocks galore, and one of the owner's favorites, a low oval table worked in mosaic. Hahnbauer appreciates the piece because of its singularity, "rare, like an original painting."Show lessRead more
