In the warehouse: Flip a switch

I shared photos of our new warehouse space the other day where we keep items that haven't been restored yet or that we don't currently have space for in the store. The photos were long shots that didn't show much detail, so for the next few days, I'll show you some specific items, starting with some of our lamps.

Ignore the dust and the auction tags and the occasional cushion with stuffing showing. Pieces won't be moved into the store till they're perfect!

    3. Oh, by the way, that peachy set you see in the background is Adrian Pearsall, due to be reupholstered.

  4. Such gorgeous pieces, and such a wonderful space. And of course we noticed a small reupholstery project heading your way in the second photo?

    1. Yes, you did. That's mainly where we're going to house things awaiting refinishing or reupholstering, plus our more moderately priced items. However, there are a few pieces in there now that should be in the store, but we're waiting for several sold items to be picked up so we'll have space for them.

  7. I love that pair of retro floor lamps with the 3 lamps each. I have one exactly like them, only in a black and brass finish instead of the tan. I believe that I found those in an early 1960s Montgomery Ward catalog I have around here.

    1. I have a black and also a tan one - Have seen them on the show PAN AM - knowing they were from Montgomery Ward explains why there are so many of them.

    2. Interesting to know that those are Montgomery Ward lamps. That definitely does explain why they are fairly common.

    3. I have also seen them in dark brown, but not nearly as often as the black and tan.

  8. These are all so retro cool. Hubby has a no more lamps (and no more chairs)rule at our house so it's nice just to be able to look and appreciate.

    1. I've pretty much imposed a no more chairs rule for myself. In fact, I really need to take one or two to the warehouse and sell them.

  9. In the background of the pic with the nova triple arc lamp there is a large piece of furniture with three drawers and doors on top.It looks very interesting, I could picture it in Ron Burgundy's bedroom with a collection of after shave lotions and balms inside.

    1. That's a Lane chest that will be featured in a Made in America post in a few days. That's hilarious about it being in Ron Burgundy's bedroom. I'll think of that from now on every time I see that chest.

  10. I had a consignor come in the other day with a very large and heavy marble base 3 globe arc that looks like yours except in gold plate. Stunning! We also received from the same consignor a 4 globe concentric ringed table lamp very similar to your pendant. Some of our consignores have great eyes and more time than I do to hunt. Looks like you are "lamped" up!!
