Some new pieces are dressing up the shop lately. The french settee was a long time in the making. I searched for one of these even before I had a shop but they are always way out of my price range. In November I found this one on Craigslist being sold about 3 hours from my house by a woman who refinishes and reupholsters this type of furniture. When it was listed on Craigslist it was unfinished so I got to pick the upholstery color which is something I never dreamed I would be able to have done for a piece like this. It was a long wait but it's finally found it's home in my shop.
The painted screen was also a Craigslist find, I wanted a screen that wasn't too "chinosierie" but still sort of dreamy. It is from the 1920s with neat wood inlay on the frame. Most of the very antique ones are so expensive, I really got lucky with this one. The light fixture is something I picked up on my last trip to New York, had to have it.
