What's New?

We just finished a few new projects.  They are now available at Hawthorne Vintage.

In Denmark we saw lots of these modern hanging lamps.  I was fortunate to be able to buy this one.  I was able to disassemble it and put it in my luggage.

Last weekend I bought this Danish teak cabinet.  It was mounted to a wall when I found it.  I spent all week refinishing the wood and I added hairpin legs to it.  The legs bring it up to the perfect table height of 29''.  Sold

Here is a quick looks at what we currently have available at Hawthorne Vintage.

Tomorrow we will be vending at the Sunday Emporium at Rejuvenation.  We will be bringing several more newly completed pieces to this event.

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. Sold

 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. Sold.

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.

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.  Sold.
