British Invasion

I went on a buying trip this weekend and found quite a few wonderful pieces.  We also finished several projects since our last post.  Here are a few of the noteworthy pieces.

Our big score this weekend was this pair of British credenzas.  Each one needs a little work but they should look incredible once they are finished.
G Plan "Fresco" credenza designed by Ib Kofod Larsen.

Compact teak credenza with fold-down bar cabinet.

 Enormous lighthouse oil painting. Signed "Yeager".  61''L x 49''H.

 Iconic modern globe on a brass stand.  Inspired by the designs of Paul McCobb.

 Mid century lounge chair upholstered in Pendleton wool //  Sold.

 Rare early design side table by Paul McCobb for Winchedon // Sold

 Early 1970s walnut frame sofa.  Refinished and reupholstered.

One of Each

Since our last post we have acquired a diverse bit of inventory.  Typically we focus primarily on seating but recently we have focused on a wider spectrum of furnishings.

We were amazed to find this Brazilian rosewood desk.  This is only the second rosewood desk that we have ever had.  The wood grain is incredible.  Brazilian rosewood was declared endangered in the early 1970s.  It can now only be found on vintage pieces of furniture // Sold.

Most modern sofas have a very low back.  Every once in a while we find a nice sofa with a higher back that still retains a modern aesthetic.  We upholstered this one in a very soft fabric, making this sofa even more comfortable.

This rocking chair by the Paoli Chair Co is one of our favorite designs.  We have a pair of them in our own living room.  We upholstered this one to match the 108'' long sofa that we finished last week.

This stool was one of the earlier designs from the modern design era.  It was designed by Alvar Aalto in 1933.  We are not sure of the exact date that this one was produced but it appears to be pretty old.

We don't seem to find many dressers, so we were glad to find this one.  It was made by Baumritter and is 100% solid maple (even the drawer boxes).

Sofas Galore

This week week we turned out some top notch projects. Here are our most recent new offerings.

We were very excited to find this matching set of leather and jacaranda sofas.  They are a rare Brazilian set by Percival Lafer.

Our biggest project this week was upholstering this 108'' long sofa.  I have been trying out some new refinishing techniques.  I used them on the walnut armrests and they turned out beautifully.

We also refurbished this Norwegian lounge chair by Westnofa.  We dyed the worn leather and added fresh foam to the cushions.

We also reupholstered and refinished this pair of Danish teak bar stools by Erik Buch.  The 3 panel Asian art piece was something I found on a recent picking trip,

Lastly I found this neat brass brutalist pendant lamp.  It looks a bit like a viking helmet.

Going Big

We recently finished two big projects and a few smaller projects.  We also have several amazing new pieces coming soon.

 Huge 4 piece sectional sofa by Kroehler.  This is the largest sectional sofa that we have upholstered.  It's a very nice set that can me arranged in multiple configurations // Sold

 Secondly, we refinished the largest dining table that we have ever had.  It has 4 leafs and extends from 63''-138.5''.  It can easily seat up to 14 people // Sold

 We also refinished and reupholstered this set of 6 dining chairs that we found with the large dining table // Sold

 Danish teak tambour door credenza.  When I found this credenza it had a plinth base that I removed.  I then added teak tapered legs to give it a more modern look // Sold.

Lastly, we upholstered this maple frame lounge chair in Pendleton wool // Sold.

Sofa, Desk, & Chairs

In the last couple days we finished a couple projects.  We also started refinishing and upholstering a nice set of Danish dining chairs.

We have wanted to upholster a gondola sofa in this teal fabric for quite sofa time.  The fabric contrasts wonderfully with the walnut accents // Sold

Floating top desk and chair by Vista of California.  This design is as functional as it is beautiful.  The drawers can be reversed so that they can be on either the left or right.  It is rare to find the original chair together with the desk.

Lastly, we have begun refinishing and upholstering this set of 6 Danish dining chairs.  It will be a pleasure to give them a new life.

Black & Tan

Last week we acquired more pieces of furniture than any other week in quite some time.  Many of the pieces need a bit of work before we sell them.  Here are a few of the pieces that have gone up for sale in the last few days.

We were fortunate to find this complete Lane dining room suite; dining table & four chairs, bar cart, and sideboard.  This set was a nice match to the Stow Davis executive set in this space.

Lane bar cart

Lane sideboard // Sold

Pair of newly reupholstered mid century slipper chairs

Before & After

Last weekend I found this wonderful 8' long mid century sofa.  I quickly stripped the old fabric off of it.  Here is a picture of the well constructed frame.

We found a nice charcoal gray fabric to upholster it in.  We think it was a great choice.  

I recently found a set of 20 Thonet dining chairs.  We got right to work on them and have already sold two sets of 4.

We stained and upholstered the first set of chairs to match this teak and formica dining table that we had.  It was a big hit and sold quickly.

Lastly, a few items sold this weekend and it opened up space for us to bring in a Stow Davis executive desk and stage it with our matching credenza. 

Spring Has Sprung

We had a hard winter here in the Pacific Northwest.  Spring has finally come and furniture has been coming out along with the sun and flowers.  We have picked up quite a lot in the last 10 days.  Here are some highlights.

 Dux walnut dining table with a set of teak dining chairs by Benny Linden // Sold

 Teak and brass coffee table by Folke Ohlsson for Dux // Sold

 Newly reupholstered sofa by B.P John.

 American mid century bedroom set.

 Mid century rocking chair with new cushions & Teddy Bear

 A few months ago we found a pair of lounge chairs by Milo Baughman.  The lowback chair sold on its own.  Recently we found a second lowback chair and we were able to make a second matching pair.

 We love this beautiful leather top credenza by Stow Davis.  It was a pleasure to restore it.  We have a matching executive desk that will be available soon.

 Lastly, here is a sneak peek at our upcoming projects.  This 8' long sofa has clean modern lines.  This sofa has a lot of potential to be a real eye catcher.

20 Thonet bentwood dining chairs!  Each one of these chairs is a needs quite a bit of work but I am sure it will be worth it.  It can be hard to find just a set of 8 matching vintage dining chairs so I jumped at the chance to buy 20.

It's Been Too Long
