Broyhill set reupholstered, BIG SCREEN premier, etsy sale and more!

Things are moving fast! Only one Heywood dresser left and that is the low one with mirror. See details in my ebay shop or etsy. You want it? You got it! Message me and we can make arrangements!

The Broyhill set just received it’s makeover so my AS IS price has been adjusted to reflect my efforts. The wood has not been refinished but I have oiled and tended to it. There are areas where color is uneven and some light signs of wear. Generally, the whole set is decent. I removed all the old upholstery, replaced the foam and batting with new and used a beautiful gold linen velvet fabric which is very high end and lovely. I scored a good deal of 5 yards of it but it is probably $100 a yard fabric. I decided to dress it up in gold because it looks so great with the walnut and was thinking it would be a great touch for the holidays! Get your home holiday ready! You can see the set in my retail space at Fleetwood Antique Mall, 14129 Kutztown Rd, Fleetwood, PA 19522 Wed-Sun 10-6. They take cash or credit. Please be prepared to haul. They will help you load. If you really want it and cannot haul, you will need to contact me and buy direct so I can get it to you. Here is a look and do not forget I have a great Saga line credenza which will soon be redone up top. As soon as I start working on it the AS IS price will disappear. Your DIY time is running out! I am determined to work my way through this stuff!

Here’s a look at the revamped space. I hung the mirror shadow box and if one of you people do not take that thing home you are seriously missing out on the most fab mirror ever! It looks great over a couch or even on a wall with the dining table. Mirrors are a great illusion to open up your space. This one is cool because it is loaded with little shelves and you can display all your kitschy little treasures. I’d fill it with my christmas pixie elves!

Fabulous Sonneman style eyeball arc lamp just added! Priced at $200. Cement base wrapped with aluminum cover. Socket just rewired and checked by my husband. Cool CFL bulb. I can’t plug this in because my plug is up high but it works fine. PLEASE NOTE! The pole breaks down for transit AND it will come off the base. DO NOT lift by the pole! Please remove from base and then break down the pole and fold. It is a super lamp! Just love it and it is a smaller size so not crazy room hogging like some of them. Perfect over a seating area for reading.

MAD MOD WORLD VINTAGE ON THE SCREEN

I sold a dark green victorian settee earlier this year that is currently on the the set of TELL ME A STORY on CBS ALL ACCESS. The show premiered on halloween night and I did not spot the couch yet although I suspect it is in Kim Cattrall’s living room. Episode two is up tomorrow so I will try to screen shot if I find it! The show is dark but so far I am liking it!

I recently sold a 50s industrial tool cart to the set of a movie filming in Philadelphia called 17 BRIDGES. Look for that next summer! It will be used in a kitchen and will be transformed into a counter with another Lyons piece next to it. Can’t wait to see how they work this cool industrial kitchen!!!

This fabric is hard to photograph and capture it precisely.  It was overcast in these shots.  In full sun, it appears much lighter than showing here.  I guess this will be more true to an interior lighting situation.  It is a great shade and a stunning choice!

SUMMER NOTES.  

I have a few trips planned this summer that I know I will be totally off the grid for most or some of that period.  I will try to give fair warning and put updates in my shop during those times.  There is a trip to the Adirondacks coming up soon ending with a weekend at our beloved moe.down music festival, and later this summer, a weekend in the Catskills.  We will be traveling and living in our VW Vanagon and are very much looking forward to connecting with nature and each other.  I will definitely post some pics!  

Weaving update.  Chair 3 is almost complete.  Today got away from me and tomorrow I have to work, but hopefully Friday it will be done and I can start on chair #4.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Ecclectic estate finds, dining chair options, and a fabulous new restoration begins.

Fall is in the air!  Many folks are thinking ahead of the holiday season and are getting their homes in order.  Adding a key new piece to your space can change your look without having to redo your whole room.  I have really focused on bringing in some unique items and some design classics in the last month so have a look at all the fun chairs in my stash and see if I can help you brighten up your home!  Some new items I am not comfortable shipping, and that will be noted in the listing and I encourage you to purchase via my Chairish shop.  You can get an instant shipping quote and if you have never shopped there, reach out as I think I can send you a coupon for $20 off your first purchase.  I have priced shipping on my own and their white glove service is easily half the price of what I can get so I feel it is worth me paying more fees on the sale to provide that service to my customers.  I have 3 items still waiting to go live, but they should be there by early next week.  Chairish is not quick to turn around listings.  :) 

Iranian-American metal artist, Bijan

Iranian-American metal artist, Bijan

I was invited to a local estate to purchase some items that had to go before the sale of the home.  I found some interesting items including a fabulous acid cut metal sculpture by an Iranian/American artist called Bijan.  Think C. Jere.  I read up on the artist and for sure am keeping the piece.  I am a sucker for tree art!  I also found that the owner had a rug fetish.  I picked up a small woven wool wall hanging.  I do not intend to sell that at this time.  These kind of things I treasure!  The real nice Arthur Umanoff metal and Danish cord chairs I recently listed also came from this estate.  It has the traditional slat board seat.  From what I have found, this particular chair is a harder to find chair.  I think it is great on it's own to add some natural interest to a space but also figured folks who have a few might be looking to complete a set.  It is in great shape overall.  I do think some of the paper cord is off at the ends but I will secure the piece to itself so it stays intact.  I would not opt to rewrap as you will lose the fabulous patina and that, in my opinion, makes this chair dreamy!  I added new plastic feet caps as there were 2 whites and 2 blacks when I found it.  This chair is listed and I could bus ship countrywide.  It is not terribly fragile.  I also picked a small upholstered arm chair, similar to my orange Heywood Wakefield arm chair, that will need a total redo.  Back of the line, but will get to it at some point. 

This Arthur Umanoff chair looks as good from the back as it does from the front!

What else I found in that musty, moldy basement was instant love and I knew I had to take her on..........a fabulous metal frame with hairpin legs MCM daybed/studio couch!  I will tell you, after an hour or so of being in that basement, there were definitely moisture issues and I am not sensitive to it myself, but I make all restoration decisions for the benefit of those who are.  With that said, this beauty is getting all new cushions.  Foam and upholstery.  I will not be doing her myself as I felt this was a great opportunity to use my beloved upholsterer in Reading and still be under budget.  Although he has not given me a firm price, he said he WILL GIVE ME A GOOD PRICE (in his thick Spanish accent).  hahaI already picked the fabric, Bentley Indigo, from Joybird and ordered it the other day.  As soon as it shows up, the cushions will be on their way to be used as a pattern.  I expect to receive the fabric next week, possibly the week after.  This couch should be ready to deliver before Thanksgiving.  Please reach out if you would be interested in welcoming her into your home!  The fabric I choose is a textured velvet so it will be nice and soft for lounging AND it is from Joybird's PET AND KID FRIENDLY choices!  I am super excited to watch this restoration come to life!  As much as my mom and I would love to have done the work ourselves, my time is needed elsewhere right now so this just happened to be a great way to support a small local business and still get the work done.  Stay tuned for updates as she moves along! 

This day bed will be totally redone in Bentley Indigo fabric from Joybird.

1968 classic Eames for Herman Miller in fabulous Cobalt upholstery! 

1968 classic Eames for Herman Miller in fabulous Cobalt upholstery! 

Just really cleaned up the Eames set and boy am I in love with them!  I decided, to keep the price user friendly, I will be selling AS IS, with the stacking bases.  Hopefully, the buyer will decide to invest in the repro dowel bases by modernconscience.com.  They are $130 each plus $20 shipping, I do not have a special arrangement with them so me buying them for you is just limiting my potential buyers and really, you could add them one at a time as budget allows.  There are some really cool things I learned about this set.  They are dated 1968.  They are MED BLUE fiberglass which was only available to contract customers with a 200+ chair order.  I am leaving the IBM sticker on the back of the one chair it is still present on because I think where they came from is freakin awesome!  The dawn of the computer age!  IBM's nickname was BIG BLUE, so kind of cool they choose these chairs to go with their image.  They are in pretty incredible shape.  No fiberglass issues and only very minor issues in the vinyl.  A few small pin holes, but no big tears or eyesores.  Also of note, the foam is SOFT!  These are in great working order.  I have seen enough trashed shells and have a well trained eye, I can spot the listings with the upholstery issues that no one talks about.....seriously, there is a lot of crap being sold online.  I assure you these are just lovely in every way!  They are the 'scholastic' or 'wide mount' so the only option of bases is the dowel base in choice of metal and wood.  I cannot attest for other repro manufacturers as I would personally buy from the company that Herman Miller refers their customers to for vintage restoration, and that is Modern Conscience. 

If you choose to add these modern conscience dowel bases, you can choose from walnut or maple wood and chrome or black powder coat metal.  Very well made and worth the investment.

Another choice of dining chairs I have is the finally complete Broyhill Brasilia chairs.  In gorgeous walnut finish and all new foam and upholstery in Pure Water by Joybird, they are stunning.  All structural issues have been repairs and a new shellac finish added to protect the wood.  These would look great in a more traditional setting if you are not an mcm purist.  They have real tall backs and make a formal statement.  They are ready to ship or deliver.  I can pack these for bus shipping nationwide for $100 or less in most cases.  

This blue really pops!  Mix with greens, blues even yellow and golds!
