Another year older for me this week! My week has started off great with my first sale on Chairish.com last week and my second sale this week! 🎉🎁✌️. That said, I am meeting my buyer in Elizabeth, NJ midday This Friday, so if anyone in the area would like to meet up for something delivered, please reach out! Also anywhere on I78 through NJ and ABE. It's a birthday road trip for me! I will find something exciting to do on the way home for sure.
I will be picking up some fabulous barware soon from a collector downsizing. I mean nice sets of 40's era Hazel Atlas. These are high end collector pieces. If any of you are interested in barware, please shoot me an email and I can let you know first what I have available after I collect and go through it. I promised I would find good homes for this collection and I may keep a set for myself, because, well PINK ELEPHANTS! 😍😍😍.
I just added a GREAT chair to the etsy shop today. It is US made by Norwalk Upholstery Co and dated 1974. Norwalk is still in business making custom upholstered pieces and weathered many ups and downs but are going strong. Always good to support these companies manufacturing in our country! This chair is styled like a Danish lounge chair, made of heavy hardwood (maple or birch, my guess), stained a medium pecan with gloss finish. A little chunkier than their Danish cousins, I am liking the gracefully sculpted arms. So many companies made chairs of this style and unless marked, it is sometimes impossible to figure out it's origins. This one is tagged. Upholstery is really in excellent condition! No tears or stains! Structurally, the seat could take some web tightening but at this point it is not bad off and I do not want to disturb. I did have some webbing and foam done on my England chair and it was very inexpensive at a local upholsterer. (That cutie is still available as well!)Have a look! It is a lovely khaki green with orange tweed. I took the pics in the rising sun so a tad warmer than reality but you get the idea.
The Heywake chairs are still in my booth and will be for at least another week unless they sell online. Please stop by if you are in the area and see them! I would love your feedback! Have a great week!
