We’re always talking about heirloom furniture on this blog. The antiques we sell are already heirlooms, and the high-quality and beautifully crafted new furniture is destined to become an heirloom one day! This month, as well as talking about heirloom furniture and home accessories, we tipped our hat to heirloom tomatoes too…
We started the month proudly announcing that we have changed our name to EuroLux Home. This is because we are doing so much business these days with antique-inspired new furniture, so the broader name shows that we offer much more than just antiques now. At EuroLuxHome.com you’ll find a wide range of new, antique-inspired furniture and home accents. For example, collections by Jonathan Charles, exquisitely crafted using the same techniques as original antique English and French furniture.
You can see exactly what we mean about the high quality of our new, antique-inspired furniture in our French Country Stools Client Spotlight. Stephanie was looking for a counter-height French Country stool for her gorgeous kitchen, and she found just want she wanted in one of our French Country style stools with intricate carvings, a hand-woven rattan seat, and antiqued black washed stain. See the full story for more photos and close-up details.
In other client spotlight, we delivered antique furniture to Brittany and Greg who live in this amazing castle style home in Charleston, SC. The couple wanted furniture with lions on it, so we knew that the Mechelen style of furniture would be a roaring success with them! (Flemish Mechelen furniture often boasts handsomely carved lion heads.) Sure enough, they chose an antique Mechelen stained glass buffet with lots of noble lions. They also picked a monumental 1880 antique Renaissance sideboard with massive lion’s paw feet. See the photos of the lion furniture inside the house in the Castle in Charleston Client Spotlight.
I’m confident that the furniture and accessories I featured in my article Warm Up Your Decor With Copper Accents will become family heirlooms.
From vintage copper plates and coal scuttle planters, to new upcycled lamps and a stunning copper backsplash, copper always creates an inviting atmosphere and a warm glow. Check out the post for some surprising ways to enjoy versatile copper in your decor, whether your taste is traditional, modern, or exotic.
Finally, what about the heirloom tomato post I mentioned? I shared a little about the history of ‘love apples’ and also suggested a wonderfully refreshing and easy recipe for gazpacho. Let’s not forget my Uncle’s fantastic Bloody Mary recipe and a chic party treat of mini insalata caprese in a shot glass.

I’ll be back in September with lots more to say about antique decor, home furnishings, interior design inspirations and living the antiques and vintage lifestyle!
