Projects Galore

In the first three days of this week we got busy and finished 3 projects.  Here they are:

Rare Danish solid walnut frame sofa with new upholstery.

Our second space at Hawthorne Vintage is crammed with goodies. Our new offering is the dining set.

Set of 6 teak dining chairs and a refinished Danish teak dining table.

Weekend Update

Last fall we took a trip to Scandinavia.  During the week that we spent in Denmark we became fascinated with the designs of Hans Wegner.  We especially loved the design of his wishbone dining chairs. This weekend we found a set of 4 of them.  They are a wonderful addition to our dining room.


Danish teak display case by Arne Vodder.  Now available at Hawthorne Vintage.


The one project that I finished this weekend was refinishing this unique teak flip top dining table.
It sold right away.




Dining Set: Teak & Walnut

Two projects that we have finished this week are reupholstering a set of 4 teak Benny Linden dining chairs and a walnut draw leaf dining table.  They are now both available at Hawthorne Vintage.



Weekend Round Up

This weekend we finished a couple projects and vended at the Portland Flea.  Here are three new pieces that are now available.

 Here is one of our corgis, Teddy, posing with a 1950s American rocking chair that we reupholstered this weekend.

Earlier this week I bought 3 of these Adrian Pearsall benches.  One has been sold already.  This one is currently available at Hawthorne Vintage.  The third one is still available for custom upholstery.

Our final new offering at Hawthorne Vintage is this gorgeous Danish teak display case.

A Few New Things

Last week we worked on a couple custom pieces and then took a few days off so we haven't had much to post.  Now we are back at work and here are a few of our latest pieces.

 Set of 4 Danish teak dining chairs by Dyrlund-Smith.  Refinished and reupholstered.

 Danish style lounge chair.  Side table by Adrian Pearsall for Craft Associates.  Cathrineholm percolator for our personal collection.

Brass trees sculpture by Curtis Jere.  Signed "C. Jere 1973".

New Offerings

Here are three projects that we have completed since our last post.

 Adrian Pearsall style bench upholstered in Pendleton wool.

 Swedish teak lounge chair by Alf Svensson for Ljungs Industrier.  Ottoman was custom built to match the chair.
Vintage daybed reupholstered in orange fabric.

Found & Finished

On Monday I went on a buying trip and came home with two Milo Baughman recliners.  We got right to work on one of them and upholstered it in black leather.  It is a very handsome chair and I am sure it will make a lovely addition to a happy home.



 It is always nice to find the original label.  They are almost always missing.

 Last weekend I found this interesting atomic style rocking chair.  We gave it some much needed repairs and upholstered it in a vibrant yellow fabric.

Road Tripping

On Monday I drove around for 12 hours looking for modern furnishings.  I discovered some amazing finds.  Here they are.
My day got off to a quick start and my truck was overflowing by the early afternoon.

 Over the years most living room sets have been split up.  It is becoming increasingly difficult to find complete sets.  This set is Swedish and was designed by Alf Svensson for Ljungs Industrier.
 Although these Milo Baughman recliners look nearly identical I found them separately, about 10 miles from one another.

 My final finds of the day were this Danish style lounge chair and an amazing cocktail set.


This lounge chair and cocktail set are now available at Hawthorne Vintage.

Monday's Offerings

We started off the week by refilling our spaces at Hawthorne Vintage.  Here is what we added

This pair of Danish oak slipper chairs were in rough shape when I found them but we put lots of work into the wood frames and the upholstery.

 MR cantilever chairs by Mies Van Der Rohe.

 Pair of Danish teak stacking cabinets & a pair of solid walnut bar stools by Dillingham.

 Solid walnut lounge chair by Gunlocke.

Big Buys

On Friday I had a great day of buying.  Here is what I got!
 (Left to right) Solid teak floor lamp, Danish teak bar cart by Orla Molgaard and Peter Hvidt for Soborg Mobler, and a Gunlocke lounge chair.  It is shorter and wider than the common desk chair version.

Pair of "MR" cantilever chairs designed by Mies Van Der Rohe.

2 lounge chair frames; one is Japanese the other is American

Danish rosewood desk by Arne Vodder for HP Hansen.  It has already been sold
