Weekend Round Up

After spending the last week in Palm Springs for Modernism Week we rushed home to finish a couple projects in time for the Sunday Emporium at Rejuvenation.  Both of the pieces that we finished were a big hit and sold immediately.

 Our first project was a recliner by Milo Baughman for James Inc.

 The second was an Eames style lounge chair and ottoman in Pendleton wool.

I also found a couple wonderful pieces this weekend.
 Swedish Kontour chair by Alf Svensson for Dux.  It should be refinished and reupholstered by the end of the week.

Almost a year ago I found a set of 4 stools by Adrian Pearsall for Craft Associates.  The stools were a great find but I was missing the matching coffee table.  Finally I found the missing table along with 4 more stools in original fabric.

Here's What We've Been Up To

Lately we have been to busy working to post what we are doing.  We are about to head down to Modernism Week in Palm Springs so I thought I would post a quick update before we went on our trip.

I bought one of these and it looked like this.
 Then we reupholstered it and now it looks like this.  Then we sold it.

 Then I got two of these.
We reupholstered one of them and now it looks like this.

When I found this one it was brown.
Now it is yellow.

I also found this too.  It is going to go in our living room.

This is the chair that was in our living room.  Now that it is being replaced it is for sale.

 Gondola sofa are one of our top sellers.  It will look much more modern by the time we are done with it.

 This Plycraft lounge chair and ottoman look very different but I have a plan to upholster them in a cohesive way that will them a nice match

 Lastly our newest offering at Hawthorne Vintage is this Norwegian teak bar cabinet.
 The top expands to create a larger table surface.

The inside provides lots of storage and has beautiful brass hardware.

Before & After

We spent this week finishing a couple projects just in time for the weekend rush.  They are now both available at Hawthorne Vintage.

I bought this this chair back in June but never got around to refinishing it until now.

 I completely disassembled it and sanded the entire frame.

I then used Danish oil to bring out the natural beauty of the beech wood.

 Lastly Heather make cushions in a wonderful orange fabric.

The second project was a modern wingback chair.  Heather did all of the work on this one.

She made the seat and backrest much more comfy and used an eye-catching blue fabric.
