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.
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.
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.
Over the summer months, project pieces are easy to come by! Here's a few of our latest furniture acquisitions that are waiting in the wings. Please contact us if you're interested in custom upholstery and refinishing.
*Disclaimer* Some pieces are just more fun with a little bit of our dog, Millie!*
Amazingly we got another Adrian Pearsall Chaise Rocker
Teak Draw Leaf Table
Plycraft Lounge Chair and Ottoman
Kroehler Lounge Chair
Two of Six Teak Danish Dining Chairs (2 with arms & 4 without)
This weekend we bought a ridiculous amount of furniture. It's all stacked up so deep that we have not yet had a chance to photograph it. We also managed to finish a couple projects today.
A local shop, Boy's Fort, commissioned a pair of Eames style lounge chairs in this interesting Pendleton wool pattern.
A couple weeks ago I found this Domino Mobler loveseat. The bland beige fabric needed some serious updating. We chose a modern grey fabric that compliments the teak frame. It is now available at Hawthorne Vintage.
Recently I learned about a very rare version of the Eames lounge chair by Herman Miller. It was a 60th anniversary edition that was only sold in Japan and only 100 were made. These chairs had black leather upholstery with black bentwood shells. I have been wanting to create a replica version of this chair. We just finished it and now it is available for $995.

One of my favorite things about the summer in Portland is all of the neighborhood sales. Some neighborhoods have over 100 garage sales. I went to one such sale this weekend and found some great stuff.
Although I have dabbled with small pieces of taxidermy but this is the first deer mount I have had. I love the majestic look in its eye.
These 4 stools have an interesting story behind them. They were originally designed by Norm Cherner for Plycraft in the 1960s. Norm's sons Benjamin and Thomas recently started a company and revived productions of their father's designs. *SOLD*
Frtiz Hansen style Danish teak tray side table. Now available on Etsy.
Our project this weekend was this wonderful Pearsall style gondola sofa. *SOLD*
