Mission Accomplished

Over the last few days we have finished several projects and now they are all available at Hawthorne Vintage.

 I love the integrated wood handles on the door and drawers of this piece.  I cut off the original base and added 6'' haipin legs to give it a floating look.  Now available for $325

 We originally intended on keeping this Westnofa recliner for our new home but we have decided to sell it after all.  Reupholstered and refinished.  Now available for $695.

 Eames style lounge chair and ottoman $595.  Newly reupholstered Kroehler highback lounge chair $695.

Handmade walnut writing desk on hairpin legs $375.

Weekend Roundup // 8/17

This week was action packed.  We vended at the Portland Flea, went on a 400 mile picking trip, and finished a couple projects.


On Sunday we vended at Portland Flea.  We brought several of the pieces that I picked up on my trip and a few of them sold right away.
  
 In other news, we just bought a house!  This George Nelson style slat bench will go in our entryway.

 Dux teak & beech side table.  I am going to begin restoring it today.

 A couple weeks ago I picked up an identical lounge chair.  It sold quickly.  I was glad to find another one

Sets of 6 dining chairs can be hard to find but I found a set of 6 of these chairs by Uldum Mobelfabrik.  They will be refinished & reupholstered shortly.

 Yugoslavian woven rocking chair.  Sold

 My favorite find of the weekend was this Danish bar cart.  Now available at Hawthorne Vintage for $395.

Millie loved this slat bench as much as the customers at the Portland Flea. Sold

 The first project we finished this week was this Rock-n-Rest recliner by Westnofa (Norway).  We will most likely be keeping it for our new home.

Finally we reupholstered a set of 4 blonde Benny Linden dining chairs.

eBay Auction: Johansson & Eames

We currently have two amazing mid century chairs up for auction on eBay.  The auctions end around 7:15pm (PST) this evening.  This is a great opportunity to get an amazing deal on a fantastic chair.  The chair pictured first was designed by Ejvind A. Johansson for Godtfred H. Petersen - Denmark.  The original fabric is in excellent condition and the legs are solid oak.  The listing can be seen here 
  The second chair is a soft pad aluminum group management chair by Charles Eames for Herman Miller.










Seating and Storage

We found and refurbished some great pieces this week.  Here are a few highlights.

Pair of bentwood Thonet side chairs reupholstered in Pendleton wool (sold).

Very rare easy chair by Ejvind A. Johansson for Godtfred H. Petersen.  Now up for auction on eBay.
The listing can be seen at this link .

An equally rare set of 4 stools by Adrian Pearsall for Craft Associtates.  

 Walnut credenza on hairpin legs.  Now available at Hawthorne Vintage.

Gondolas Galore

Good things come in threes! This saying really holds true for much of our vintage finds. Chris picked up this gondola sofa a couple weeks ago. It was in poor shape with the original yellow scratchy upholstery. Chris stripped all it's guts, revealing that it was made out of high-quality maple wood. 


As with the other gondolas, I chose a dark gray fabric that has nice texture. It sets off the wood nicely and plays well with most people's home design. 


My favorite feature of this sofa are the 'v' shaped legs.



At first we thought this sofa was designed by Adrian Pearsall, but we could not find one attributed to him that has this wood piece on top. It's definitely made in his similar style.


The sofa is for sale at Hawthorne Vintage for $1850.

Mid Week Pickin'

Earlier this week I went on a 300 mile picking trip.  Here are a few of the things that I picked up.  They are all now available at Hawthorne Vintage.
Danish teak dining table with 1 leaf $450.

Danish lounge chairs.  We reupholstered the cushions with Pendleton wool. $525.

 Broyhill Sculptura dresser $425.

Small Domino Mobler credenza.  I cut off the original base and added hairpin legs. $275.

Sunday Emportium // 7/27

On Sunday we vended at the Sunday Emporium event at Rejuvenation in Portland.  We spent all week working on some very special projects for this event.  We finished them in the nick of time.  Our pieces looked beautiful paired with the modern lighting at Rejuvenation.


Our Plycraft chair upholstered in Pendleton wool was one of the first items to sell.

 One of the projects that we worked on all week was this Adrian Pearsall rocking chaise.  It is now available at Hawthorne Vintage.

 (Right)  When we reupholstered this Plycraft lounge chair and ottoman we left the wood in the armrests exposed.  It's a big improvedment over the condition we found it in.

Lastly we upholstered this beautiful set of teak and oak armchairs by Moblenord.

Portland Flea // July Recap

Yesterday was another successful Portland Flea! If you haven't made it out yet, it's a must! Before the crowds arrived, I quickly snapped these photos.



After vending at every Portland Flea for almost three years now, I think I can safely say that this was the most attended flea yet! There were tons of people mulling about all day long.  Here's a pic from Portland Flea's instagram.








If you're bummed you missed out, come to Sunday Emporium this Sunday from 11-5pm at Rejuvenation. It will be a different vibe and vendors, but still lots of treasures to be found.

For Your Consideration: Modern Teak Wastebasket by Einar Barnes for P.S. Heggen

This past week I found one of my favorite pieces of modern design.  A teak wastebasket designed by Einar Barnes for P.S. Heggen.  I love the sculptural beauty of this piece and this one is in excellent condition.  I wish I could keep it but selling it is the financially responsible thing to do.  It is now up for auction on eBay.
Happy bidding!  Click here for eBay listing.
