In the store: Fantastic furniture and awesome accessories

My SIL won two great Haeger earth wrapped vases at an online auction and then found a very cool 26" metal sculpture on an out-of-town picking trip. The vases add a bright splash of color to any credenza or coffee table, and the metal sculpture will create a bit of drama in any room.

While on his picking trips, he made some fantastic furniture finds as well, including a teak desk with a top that slides from side to side to reveal hidden storage, a pair of Baumritter chairs, a dining set with six newly reupholstered chairs and a 9-drawer credenza.

The first of three Carter Brothers scoop chairs just got back from the upholsterer, and it's on the floor now too. An identical low-back one in avocado green and a high-back yellow one will be ready soon.

We also just put a really nice vintage bullet planter out. It's white with a gold pattern, and it's in super condition.


  1. @Makemindmidcentury: Sometimes I wish I were too. :)

  2. I'm loving the scoop chair and that burnt orange is the perfect color for upholstery.

  3. @I dream lo-tech: That's actually the original vinyl on the orange scoop chair. It just had to go to the upholsterer for a couple of minor tune-ups...a loose button and some stitching. The other two are being completely re-done. They had their original green and yellow vinyl, but they were both the worse for wear. They'll look just like they did when they were new when we get them back.

  4. A lovely selection of chairs, but it's that sideboard we want - beautiful!

  5. @chairsmith: Someone agreed with you. It sold the day after we put it on the floor. :)

  6. Simply Astonished,lovely pairs of dinig tables and chairs..awesome creativity.
