The Latest and Greatest

It has been a couple weeks since our last update.  Here are some of the pieces we have worked on recently.

We were very excited to find this pair of lounge chairs.  When I first saw them I thought they would be a set to upholster in Pendleton wool.

Here is the final result.  We are very happy with them.  The soft new wool and gray tones are a nice touch.

Road Trip

Recently I went on a one day 415 mile buying trip.  I had a very favorable day and found many wonderful mid century modern furnishings.

Now & Then

Our blog posts and update have been a little far and few between this month.  We will try to post a little more regularly in February.  Nevertheless we have put out quite a few nice pieces.  Here are a few of our latest offerings.

 Newly upholstered mid century American lounge chair and ottoman.  It has been a while since we have found a lounge chair with a matching ottoman.

Before & After: This love seat was a fun project.  We removed the original upholstered armrests and added solid walnut armrests.

 Modern Drexel lounge chair upholstered in a brilliant yellow fabric.

Freshly refinished Danish solid teak dining table.

 Scandinavian beech & teak bar cart with a few items from our personal collection.

A very rare find was this flawless 1950s floor lamp by Gerald Thurston for Lightolier.

Last but not least, an American walnut highboy dresser by Dixie. 

Hello 2018

 It's been nearly a month since our last regular post.  Since then we have finished several projects and found a few more.

Our final upholstery project of the year was this gondola sofa.  They are getting harder and harder to find so we are thankful each time we find one.

We reupholstered this B.P. John lounge chair in a brilliant yellow fabric.  It sold quickly so we are currently upholstering a Drexel lounge chair in the same fabric.

 I ended the year of 2017 by going on a 500 mile road trip.  The surprise find of the trip was this Danish lounge chair by Ib Kofod Larsen.  I have begun refinishing it but it is proving to be challenging because there is a bit of water damage but it should be done soon.

 Another thing I found on my road trip was this autumnal sculpture by Curtis Jere.

The crown jewel of the road trip was this 48 bottle wine rack by Arthur Umanoff.  They can be very hard to find.  I have only seen two others in person in the last 5 years.  It sold quickly.

We refinished this Lane acclaim coffee table and accentuated the oak and walnut tones in the wood.  It has been sold as well.

This Lane bench is the first time we have tried deep diamond tufting.  We learned quite a bit through the experience.  We are now more confident to take on a similar project in the future.

We continued our blue velvet theme with this British settee.  We rarely find highback sofas so it was wonderful to find this one and bring it back to life.

We are now in the second stage of baby-proofing our home.  This bar cart has been in our home for a couple years but we have now decided to move it along.

 Lastly, we found this incredible 9 piece sectional sofa by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin.  Each piece has nearly identical dimensions allowing for many possible configurations.
