If you’ve been too busy to read our home decor and antiques blog recently, you missed some great Customer Home Spotlights and other news. Here’s a quick “antiques roundup” of our September posts, linked to the original stories so you can go back to see them for yourself!
A couple of years ago we sold a set of antique Renaissance chairs to La Biblioteca, a tequila bar that offers more than 350 tequilas in Denver, CO. It’s part of the empire of Richard Sandoval Restaurants so we were delighted to see how great our chairs looked in this gorgeous bar and to read the rave reviews of La Biblioteca in the press. See more about the antique French chairs and the restaurant in the full blog post.
Our customers Lenore and John recently purchased a charming old cottage next to a babbling brook and they bought several pieces of antique furniture from us to furnish it. This photo shows a beautifully carved antique French Henry II buffet and a set of vintage French Renaissance dining chairs dating to about 1930. Read the whole Cottage Style with Antique Furniture post to see more about this room, plus the master bedroom where Lenore creatively used a pretty Louis XVI buffet as part of the bedroom suite!
The plot of the story explains the mystery behind the sign on the wall of our antiques store. It dates back to the 1930s and it’s a tale of rivalry and a good idea gone wrong. This story ends with a bang!
Read about it in the post: Vintage Life: The Mystery Behind the Sign.
We also shared two pieces of good news. Houzz has awarded us a Recommended badge (given to the top-rated pros on Houzz.com) and an Influencer badge, given to pros on Houzz whose “advice and knowledgeable posts are most appreciated by the Houzz community.” We already received a Best of Houzz 2015 award for our customer service. If you want to see me brag (and also wonder about Clint Eastwood’s role in all of this) check out the Houzz Home Decor Honors post.
The unusual and very high quality antique-inspired furniture and home accessories from these two superb companies are a perfect addition to our existing collections.
