Take a seat. Chairs everywhere.

I have lots of new items to unveil and I am busy working on getting some ready to go.  Here is an overview of items I have in house.   

First off, there are some modern, AS IS items I am blowing out. You can pick up or arrange a meet up local to me. These are not offered online.  You must contact me directly!

Super set from ROWE FURNITURE.  2 arm chairs and matching ottoman.  Structurally superb, no rips or tears in upholstery but it will need a good cleaning.  Priced to MOVE at $100 for all 3 pieces.

Next up....NEW GOODS! 

i hit a local auction last weekend and to my surprise, the local dealers were not interested in the few mid century and bohemian items there!  These are trickling in to my online markets and being cleaned up and tended to.   

Blond beech Thonet 811 arm chairs.  designed by Josef Hoffmann/Josef Franck in 1930s.  This is an early set as noted by the lack of extra leg supports that were added to later models.  Beautiful hand caned seats and backs and in fantastic condition.  I will be glueing up a few wobbly front legs (reason additional supports were added) you may periodically have to repeat this as they loosen up but an ounce of prevention will keep them stellar.  They are super lightweight, simple, yet gorgeous in design. Made in Thonet’s Czechoslovakian plant, imported by US IMPORTER Stendig and stamped, stickered accordingly. You will find Thonet’s bentwood pieces in museums all over the world as Michael Thonet devised and perfected the stream bending process.  Here’s a great chance to obtain a large matched set of these great artifacts!

A bohemian and eclectic’s dream!

Rattan and reed chaise. This beautiful piece is from same estate (Doctor). Not sure it’s origins but design elements are very much a replica of a Thonet No. 2 chaise.  They are typically not bamboo, however and feature cane instead of woven reed.  I will continue to research but not only is it a gorgeous piece to look at, it was used inside so is in very good condition.  A few broken reeds but no missing areas. I will spend time tacking some areas with glue as that is all that needs to be done.

Gorgeous Knoll raw saddle leather office chair. Swivels and on casters. This leather is dreamy.  I found one chair like it online but no identification help.  It is not in Knoll’s current offerings.  I have reached out to the company so let’s hope their helpfulness is better than their Human Resources since I have applied for many jobs there in the last year and only get canned denial emails. 🤦‍♀️

Adorable oval tall table.  This may make an appearance at my booth....need to sell the Broyhill set!!!!

I will split these chairs from the table at this point.  I am priced at $400 local pick up.  That gets you the chairs (new upholstery), table and leaf.  You can’t beat this price for Broyhill Saga!  These splat back chairs were sold with all the Broyhill premier lines and you can add on very easily.  Why am I priced so low?  I sold the credenza off quickly and made my money on this buy.  I do not have room as my storage is jammed.  This is the one set I have that I can offer to local fans and collectors at a great price! I buy to sell retail, not wholesale.  When I can offer at a great wholesale price, I want to!  This chance does not come often. That said, my online price of $600 is still great but accounts for my fees.  Shipping this complete could be a $650 price.  Still the set will be had under value if you restore the finish. It is current in well loved/rustic condition but it’s charming. The gold linen seats are new including the foam and it is ready to use.

I am working on the other set of chairs I have as well.  Fabricating a new support piece as the former was missing.  Will replicate the finish on the new piece and then just need to knock a few crooked legs loose and reglue them up.  The former fixer did not use clamps. 😭  They look real nice cleaned up.  I am leaving the original upholstery alone and did repair a small hole.  I think it’s nice and if you want to hire me to redo for you I would gladly do that but trying to keep the price down and I really do love the striped fabric!  So sexy! These will be priced to move!

My husband is working on the new piece of maple that will replace a missing rung.  It’s a great match to the original wood which is probably beech.

Hey Heywood!  Love this cute 4 drawer Encore dresser.  It has been refinished to walnut but the finish is excellent.  Sure it can be stripped and saved, but it really is in good shape to use.  If you like your Hey Wake dark, this one is for you!  I will be listing this weekend I hope....still in my vanagon with all this crap weather!

Credenza refinish, Black Friday/Small Biz Sat

IMG_9686.JPG

I am in the final week of my tax prep class and so excited to finish up!  I have a final next Monday which I need to score 80 or better on. 🙏🏻 Hopefully this will open me up for some hours next spring.  I love what I do here but it does not pay my bills.  🤷‍♂️ So until that happens I have to keep working a plan B. Meanwhile, I am thinking about Black Friday and Small Biz Saturday.  I will have some great stocking stuffers from Primitives by Kathy out at my retail space priced to move. I am doing $6 ea and pick 4 for $20.  These are new gifts from my wholesaler in packaging with tags, etc.  they retail for double this price so come shop with me!  I hope to spend some time hanging out at the mall too.  Please come take a look at the Broyhill set if you are looking for a mid mod dining room. I just redid the top of the credenza too.  I am not so sure I can squeeze that in but I left a flier on the table about it.  Here are some pics

Very pleased with the color match!  I am priced well under retail on this collectible Broyhill set. I would love to find it a home for the holidays!

I wish I could feature more stuff out here but alas, I only have a small space.  Please review my online shops.  If you want to see anything let me know and I will try to leave it out there for you or meet you so you can see it.

Just split up this chair set by selling off 2 of the black chairs.  I am now offering in sets of 2, black or natural finish.  If you want all 4 I will split shipping.  These can go Greyhound 2 per box.

Another interesting item available is this great antique chest.  My son used it as a toy chest and we made some modifications including fixed hinges that keep the top open all the time, plastic trim over the metal edge. The lock is broken so no chance of locking a tiny person inside and we are leaving a mat in the bottom.  Great toy storage for a waiting room or play room. The paint is durable and was redone before we bought it 13 years ago or so.  It is a neat piece and needs a new home.    Etsy shop sales ENDS NOV 15th 11:00 pm EST! SHOP NOW AND SAVE ON MOST ITEMS!
