Road Trip!!!

Winter is quickly approaching here in the Pacific Northwest.  The change in weather prompted me to take one last road trip before the everything turns cold and wet.  I was out for 2 days and drove 880 miles.  I didn't fill the van entirely but came pretty close.  Although it would have been nice to find a little more I am very happy with the quality of what I did find.


The piece of furniture that inspired this road trip was this Danish sofa by Bramin.  It has an incredible afromosia base.   Years ago someone upholstered it in this hideous fabric.  I can't wait to restore it to its original glory.


Secondly, I found a pair of Paoli chairs.  The first is a rocking chair.  This is one of our favorite American rocking chair designs.  We have a pair of them in our own living room.

This second chair has the same seat at the rocking chair but just with a fixed base rather than a rocking base.

This Dux style lounge chair is another design that we are always on the hunt for.  We have already begun reupholstering it in brand new orange fabric.

Lastly, I found this large autumnal oil painting by Lee Reynolds.

After the road trip we managed to squeeze in one upholstery project.  A rare 1973 chrome recliner by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin.
