Back To Business

Hello everyone in Interternetland, the reason for the recent lack of activity on our blog was a three week trip to France, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway (more details to come).  We have now been back for about a week and we have gone right back to work finishing projects and finding new ones.  Here are a few of our latest completed projects.
 Rocking chair by Hans Wegner for Tarm Stole Mobelfabrik.  This is the first Hans Wegner designed chair that I have found.  It was great to find one locally after seeing so many of his pieces in Denmark.  It will be available exclusively at Rejuvenation's Sunday Emporium this weekend.
 Teak lounge chair by Grete Jalk.

 Beech lounge chair in Pendleton wool by Folke Ohlsson for Dux.

 Teak case love seat by Millard Sheets for Van Dyver Witt.  Refinished & reupholstered.

Rock n Rest recliner by Alf Svensson for Dux.  Refinished, reupholstered, and sold.

New Arrivals

We just added a few new pieces over at Hawthorne Vintage and re-styled both of our spaces.  I think that the new staging makes each booth look like a livable space and helps customers to imagine each piece in their own home.  Pricing can be seen on our Hawthorne Vintage page.

The new pieces we added are the three starburst clocks and the grey DWR Ted Boerner sofa which we reupholstered this week.

Chairs, Lamps, and Tables

As we prepare for our European vacation we trying to get as many projects done as possible.  We finished several projects this week and we have several more we plan to complete this week.  Keep an eye out for our new offerings in the coming days.

George Mulhauser plycraft pod chair reupholstered in black leather.  Sperti irradiation floor lamp, newly rewired.

Newly reupholstered Selig lounge chair.  Walnut live edge coffee table.

Set of 6 Danish teak dining chairs.  They sold just a few minutes after putting them in Hawthorne Vintage.

Rejuvenation: Sunday Emporium

We spend nearly every waking hour this week moving into our new home.  The one commitment that we were scheduled for this weekend was to vend at the Sunday emporium at Rejuvenation in Portland.  We had a great day and sold a few things.  Our two new pieces, Moroccan coffee table and Pendleton Eames style lounge chair, are now available at Hawthorne Vintage.

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.
