Eglomise Glass Furniture and Home Decor

Antiqued Mirror Gold EglomiseWe have added more églomisé glass furniture and decor to our online EuroLuxHome.com gallery recently. This is a very special technique that takes a lot of expertise for craftsmen and women to achieve. The results are breathtakingly beautiful!

The verre églomisé technique sometimes gives an aged or antiqued look to glass or a mirror, and sometimes it gives a very pretty and decorative effect.

Verre églomisé is a French phrase, and the term means that the glass (verre in French) has a design or gilding applied on the rear of the glass to create a mirror finish.

This antiqued gilt and eglomise wall mirror in our store is a good example.

You can see how the églomisé effect applied to the back of the glass makes the wall mirror look naturally aged.

Another way of applying the églomisé technique is in a very decorative piece, like this superb new John-Richard églomisé credenza.

Eglomise CredenzaThe John-Richard credenza is extraordinary with its antiqued gold and abstract pattern. We reckon that this piece would work in so many interior design styles. It is perfect for a glamorous Art Deco interior, and it will also pack a punch in a Mid-Century Modern, Modern or Contemporary home. The artisans at John-Richard have really outdone themselves.

Eglomise screenThis is also a John-Richard piece. The John-Richard églomisé floor screen is less overtly ornate in the design of the glass than the credenza above, but it shows how an églomisé finish can turn a simple piece of glass into a fairyland! It also turns it semi-opaque, which is very useful if you are the person getting dressed behind the screen!

Scarborough House Eglomise Center TableThe gold leaf églomisé table top on this incredible Scarborough House center table almost plays second fiddle to the ornately hand-carved base. But not quite!

The beautiful gold leaf églomisé top is the perfect complement to the hand-carved wood. A plain glass top here might look as if something was a little out of balance… the heavily carved table needs a top that can stand up to it! The decorative reverse painted gold leaf glass top does exactly that.  If you want to create a handsome focal point for your foyer, living room or great room, this table has you covered!

There is something quite magical about églomisé glass furniture and decor that simply takes my breath away. It has a delicate and slightly mysterious quality. I hope that you feel the same way after our little tour! To see all the églomisé glass furniture and decor on our website, just click the link and extend your tour of wonderland.

Client Spotlight: Chelsea House Lisa Kahn Mirror

Our customer Barbara ordered this beautiful Chelsea House Lisa Kahn collection mirror for her bathroom. I think the antiqued glass looks wonderful in her bathroom in Riverwoods, IL.  It really ties in with the marble counters and pretty nickel sconces.

Chelsea House Lisa Kahn mirrorThe iron arched fretworkwall mirror that Barbara chose is from the Chelsea House Lisa Kahn collection and it has an antique gold leaf finish. The mirror is more than 4 feet high and it also comes with an antiqued silver leaf finish.  It brings a sense of elegant grandeur to the room and it pairs perfectly with Barbara’s light fixtures.

Lisa Kahn Chelsea House chandelier Chelsea House is the decorative home accessories label of Jonathan Charles Fine Furniture and the company introduced the Lisa Kahn Collection a few years ago.

Kahn is a renowned interior designer in Naples, Florida, and the head of the Kahn Design Group. She has a fresh and feminine take on traditional, classic and serene interiors and now her signature look is available to everyone, even if we can’t afford Lisa Kahn to design our entire home!

This lovely Lisa Kahn for Chelsea House chandelier  with a sleek nickel finish and delicate lines gives you a sense of her graceful design aesthetic.

Tracery is a popular theme in the Lisa Kahn collection as you can see in this Gothic tracery cocktail table.

The cocktail table would match beautifully with the Lisa Kahn tracery mirror below.

Lisa Kahn Chelse House tracery metal mirrorThe metal Lisa Kahn wall mirror features a glowing gold leaf finish. As it is five feet high, it becomes a decorative focal point any room, as well as being a practical mirror.  Again, the mirror is available with a silver leaf finish. You can see our entire Chelsea House Lisa Kahn collection at this link.

I think Barbara chose the perfect mirror for her bathroom. The traditional luxury and understated glamour of her elegant mirror works terrifically with her decor! Thanks for the photo Barbara, we hope you enjoy the Lisa Kahn mirror for many years!

Bookshelf: Elements of Style

These three new interior design books look so gorgeous and lavish and stylish, they are sure to provide home decor inspiration!

The Four Elements of Design: Interiors Inspired By Earth, Water, Air and Fire

the-four-elements-of-design-featured-imageInterior designer Vicente Wolf has very classic taste and in this book he turns to the classic elements of earth, water, air, and fire as a basis for home decor.

For example, Earth inspires interiors featuring natural materials such as wood and stone. Fire revels in dramatic reds and Air creates a light and open atmosphere. I’m guessing the image on the front cover is Air, don’t you think? Lots of luminous white and shiny surfaces, accents of transparency and reflection. I don’t know how we’d keep this room so pristine bearing in mind our brood of 8 cats and dogs, but it sure is pretty to look at!

Beautiful: All-American Decorating and Timeless Style

Beautiful All-American DecoratingInterior designer Mark D. Sikes celebrates American style in all its classic and eclectic glory. Sikes offers suggestions for all kind of looks, from bright and breezy “Blue and White Forever” casual spaces to “Timeless Neutrals” — semiformal rooms adorned with French chairs, chinoiserie, gilt, glass, mirrors, and banquettes.  It really is America the Beautiful!

Film director Nancy Meyers wrote the book’s foreword, saying that Sikes shows “how classic can look fresh, how style and comfort go hand-in-hand.” That’s what we like!

 

Around That Time: Horst at Home in Vogue

Around that TimeThis book looks so incredibly glamorous, and it’s not surprising. Horst P. Horst was a top fashion photographer for Vogue and when he turned his lens on some of the world’s most stunning homes, his chic-o-meter was just as strong! From the 1960s through the 1980s,  he created opulent images of the homes of the world’s movers and shakers. Essays by Valentine Lawford give further insight into the houses and the people who lived in them.

Horst is famous for saying: “Fashion is an expression of the times. Elegance is something else again.” Perfect and timeless!

I feel like I ought to be wearing a cocktail hat and a designer outfit just to open the cover of Horst’s book. But shh… it will be a lovely guilty pleasure to read it curled up on the sofa in  my Elvis pajamas!

Vintage Summer Style and Antique Furniture

We have just crossed the halfway point of the year (can you believe it?) and it seems like a good time to look back on our best vintage summer style and antique furniture posts from the last four months. Here are our favorite home decor stories to inspire you!

Silver Spoon Chandelier Pendant Light FixtureEarly in the spring we heard that Consumer Reports magazine would feature one of our upcycled vintage chandeliers in their Kitchen Planning and Buying Guide.

We were delighted as our spoondeliers and pretty vintage teacup and spoon chandeliers are very popular and they are made by an artisan right here in the USA.

Read the whole Silver Spoon Chandelier in Consumer Reports story with photos from client homes.

Antique Chairs and TableIt’s always a joy to write our client spotlights about the new and antique furniture our customers bought from us and how great it looks in their homes. This one really caught our attention though, with antique French Renaissance chairs, the famous Aztec calendar stone and the singer Axl Rose, of the band Guns N’ Roses! To top it off, our client Bernard, who told us this great story, also lives in Hawaii with fantastic views.

Art Deco Buffet 18-33We recently received a container of antique furniture from France that included some amazing Art Deco buffets. We chose these buffets and sideboards because we love the look of Art Deco furniture and the pieces are exceptional.

They all have the spirited glamor and glitz of the Art Deco era, as well as the sophistication and craftsmanship that we expect from French furniture makers of the 1930s.

So I wrote a post about Classic Art Deco Style using these Art Deco buffets as examples to point up the features of this period of furniture. I’d love to hear if you enjoy this style as much as we do!

Jonathan Charles Home Office FurnitureWhen everyone was busy with spring cleaning and tax time (yay – that’s behind us for another year!) I wrote a series of blog posts about beautiful home office decor.

It was fun to think about how to create an enjoyable home office, from picking the perfect desk to choosing home office accents.

Top Grain Leather Sofa Antique LookI also got lucky and picked up some great tips about different types of leather and leather furniture care from one of the leather furniture makers that we work with.

They are a small family business and so they have time to chat and correspond with me and give me info and advice. So I passed that on to our blog readers in my post about Top-Grain vs. Split-Grain Leather and Leather Furniture Care. Read that and you’ll know how to take care of your favorite leather furniture. You’d be surprised at some of the mistakes people make!

mediterraneanflowerpotMy final favorite blog post recently was inspired by Mother’s Day! I made up a bunch of flower pots and hanging baskets for my mom and that made me think about Great Ways to Decorate the Garden with Flower Pots.

I hope you enjoy browsing through my favorite vintage style and antique furniture blog posts as much as I enjoy sharing them with you!

Bookshelf: Living With Antiques

In every one of our client spotlights you can see how beautifully our customers live with antiques or antique-inspired furniture. These three new home design books offer more inspiration on how to live with antiques in a modern world!

Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and Antiques

Past Present Living with Antiques“Antiques add the touch of time and the human hand,” says author Susan Sully. Her new book shows how every antique piece, “tells a story that began long ago and hasn’t ended yet. There are no rules about living with them, except to take what’s old and keep it young by making it part of daily life.”  That’s exactly what we think!

Sully’s book shows how to blend heirlooms and antiques into contemporary homes. Photographs include rooms decorated by collectors, antiques dealers and design professionals to create lively settings for today’s lifestyle.

Rooms for Living: A Style for Today with Things from the Past

Rooms for LivingThe book title says it all! Interior designer Suzanne Rheinstein shows how well she can translate traditional style into something fresh, whether for casual or format interiors.

The examples she shows include how to turn a neglected living room turned into a space for reading and writing and how to use color to dress up an entryway. If you love the look of timeless elegance but want to keep a relaxed and inviting atmosphere for your real-life family to enjoy, Rooms for Living is worth a browse!

 

Home

Ellen HomeEllen DeGeneres says that she is passionate about interior design. She might even have been a designer herself if she hadn’t made such a wonderful career for herself in show business.

She has renovated and decorated nearly a dozen homes and she’s a big fan of antique furniture.

All of Ellen’s houses that I’ve read about include antique furniture, from antique French furniture to exotic antique rugs and carpets and from Spanish colonial benches to Rococo Bergere armchairs.
She also seems keen on using antique architectural elements in her home decor. It all creates a Ellen Home bookwonderfully eclectic effect, combining Mid-Century Modern and Louis XVI, traditional French and colorful Asian pieces.

Ellen’s wit and character shines through in the way she juxtaposes pieces that she loves. She really does have a good design eye and is a great ambassador to show how to live with antiques.

I hope you find some inspiration for how to live with antiques in your own particular style!

Houzz Furniture and Home Decor Favorites

We have been selling on Houzz.com for less than two years but we’ve already found an enthusiastic following of home decor lovers who are quick to snap up our antiques imported from France, as well as our high-quality and hand-crafted antique-inspired furniture. We already won several home decor honors from Houzz including a Best of Houzz award for our customer satisfaction and service.

So I thought that for today’s blog post I’d share with you three of the most popular items we’ve been selling recently on Houzz. It’s a good way to take the temperature of the kind of things that Houzz folk are interested in right now in terms of home decor.

Leather Sofas and settees and leather chairs are very popular with the style-wise Houzzers, probably because leather upholstery looks good with any style of decor and stands up to tough punishment in daily wear. For example, this elegant but comfortable new Madison leather accent chair, superbly crafted with a solid wood frame featuring hand-applied nailhead trim. The weathered brown leather gives a classic aged effect. All you need is a good book or the remote control and a glass of wine and you are settled in for the evening!

Aubusson hand-embroidered throw pillow

Our new Aubusson hand-crafted throw pillows are also being snapped up left and right. We have many different designs in our wide selection of Aubusson throw pillows but they all of exceptionally high quality and craftsmanship. This 20″ x 20″ hand-embroidered throw pillow in traditional Aubusson style is a good example. The large embroidered flowers are perfect for a French Country living room or bedroom, and the pretty design is set off by a luxurious frame of green and bronze tassels. A zippered velvet fabric and a down and feather insert add to the comfort! A set of handsome throw pillows always adds a wonderful decorative touch to a room and the design of the pillows can really help pull together a color scheme.

Woodbridge Marseille console table

Design savvy Houzz fans are also buying a lot of console tables from us.  A console table is so versatile and it can be used in many different ways in every room of the house. It can be a convenient storage table in a narrow hallway, a beautiful display table placed against the wall in a living room, or it can be placed as a visual divider between different areas of a room. One of our most popular console tables is this gorgeous solid wood Woodbridge Marseille console table with a hand-waxed cherry veneer.

I think that a good leather chair or sofa, attractive throw pillows and an eye-catching console table are all practical and beautiful investments in any home. Apparently the Houzz community agrees! What do you think?

Bookshelf: Past Perfect Antiques and Stylish Details

These three new interior decor books have beautiful covers that make me want to step right into the rooms they portray! They focus on antiques as an essential part of the personality of a home, as well as examining the important details that add the finishing touches.

Past Perfect

Past Parfect Antiques Book Written by a designer and antiquarian in partnership with an editor at Architectural Digest magazine, this hunky new book has a strong emphasis on Old World style.

The featured homes evoke past eras with rooms designed with more than a dash of European personality. They are decorated with antiques (of course!) and they also show how easy it is to live with antique furniture and decorative items,  creating a unique space that reflects your personality. The cover shot is so inviting – I love the way the art is arranged around the large mirror on the wall!

It’s the Little Things

It's the Little Things Home Decor bookThe subtitle of this stunning book is: Creating Big Moments in Your Home Through The Stylish Small Stuff. Don’t we all want that? This decorating book offers inspiration from designers including Alessandra Branca, Bunny Williams and India Hicks, showing how small touches in a room can create a stylish vignette that reflects your individuality and interests. Some of the photographs in the book are of full rooms, others give examples of how designers and homeowners arrange their art, objects, and beloved possessions. The author intends to help readers “to slow down and pay attention to the details that can add richness and personality to any interior.” I second that!

Patina Farm

Farmhouse and antiques decor bookAlthough the Californian farm home featured in this unusual book is newly built, the style signature is all about antiques and traditional looks. The authors are an architect and an interior decorator. When the couple decided to leave their suburban home to start life afresh on a farm, they first traveled through France and Belgium in search of ideas and antiques. More than 200 photographs and architectural drawings show the inspirations for the house and the process of pulling it all together from the building materials to the decorative details. I’m guessing that if you love Farmhouse style and French antiques, you’ll enjoy taking a tour around Patina Farm!

Pantone Picks Pink and Blue for Interiors

A few weeks ago I blogged about the Paint Colors of the Year for 2016, which are all soft whites. The only company that has spoken out for color this year is Pantone. The international color trend experts at Pantone picked a pink and a blue for their colors of the year 2016. The colors are called Rose Quartz and Serenity.

Pantone pink and blue

Pantone chose these soft pink and blue tones for the same reason as the paint companies who chose whites!

They say it’s to create a sense of peacefulness – an escape from modern day stresses. The Pantone website says “Whether on their own or combined with other shades, the pairing of Serenity and Rose Quartz bring a feeling of calm and relaxation into the home environment.”
This is the first time Pantone picked two colors rather than one. Last year it was the deep wine color Marsala, which I thought was a very nice shade for many different styles of home decor. The light pink and blue are a bit different. Pink and blue makes some people think of picking a color to paint the nursery for the baby! Other people might be reminded of the 1980s.  But I think there are ways to work with Serenity and Rose Quartz in the home and still keep it looking grown-up and beautiful.

Blue and Pink Floral Traditional

Here is one example. It reminds me of the decor I’ve seen in some old French houses and chateaux, where the soft pastel pinks and blues were a very traditional choice. High quality materials and fine finishes are important to carry off this luxurious look. A touch of gilding adds to the sophistication too!

This is a sweet take on the same color combo. The romantic bedroom plays up the delicate tones by pairing them with flowers, bows, crystals on the light fitting, and sheer curtains. Even the image behind the bed of a rack of dresses has a floaty feel.
Aubusson Pink Blue Throw Pillow
If all-out Rose Quartz pink and Serenity blue is too much for you, a few home decor accents can capture the tranquility of these colors.

This new Aubusson throw pillow blends similar shades of pink and blue beautifully. Crafted using traditional techniques to replicate antique French Aubusson pillows, the pillow has a floral design that would look very pretty in a Victorian bedroom or in a country cottage living room.

Dale Tiffany Blue Barroque LampThe airy weightlessness of the two colors also makes me think they will look good on glass. The softness of the colors matched with the shiny translucency of glass seems like a match made in color heaven!

I think the blue on the hand-crafted art glass shade of this new Dale Tiffany Blue Baroque table lamp looks very close to the Pantone Serenity shade.

The shade is made by glass artisans using traditional copper foil techniques and the pretty glass jewels add to the light and tranquil feel.

Pink Chandelier FlorenceThis amazing new Cyan Design Florence chandelier looks like a close match for Rose Quartz pink. The Murano glass style chandelier with its cascading swirls could almost be whipped up from pink clouds at sunset! Or maybe I’m just getting all romantic and dewy-eyed from looking at Rose Quartz pink and Serenity sky blue for too long!

What do you think of the Pantone colors of the year? Would you like them in your home? Would you combine them or just stay with one shade or the other?

Stunning Home Decor from Scarborough House and Cyan Design

We are thrilled to be starting the new year with two new furniture collections in our furniture and home accents online store. Each collection is stunning in its own way. The first furniture maker is Scarborough House which creates beautiful antique-inspired furniture. The high-quality pieces are hand-crafted using using age-old techniques.

Scarborough House Demilune tableThis Scarborough House demilune table is a fine example.  Scarborough House is acclaimed for its veneers using the finest crotch mahogany and burls that remain beautiful for years to come. They also make their own brass hardware to create a perfect match for the piece. Combined with their rich finishes on the wood, this attention to detail and great craftsmanship all adds up to heirloom quality furniture.

Scarborough House Rosewood Card TableThis charming rosewood and crotch mahogany flip-top card table looks like it should be in a Jane Austen novel with its decorative brass accents! The satinwood chest of drawers below is another impressive example of Scarborough House style.

Satinwood Chest of DrawersAs you might guess by the company’s name, it was founded by an Englishman who was a fine furniture designer and maker. You probably remember the song: “Are you going to Scarborough Fair? Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.” The old English ballad refers to a gathering held in the coastal town of Scarborough in the north of England. It was a popular attraction in Medieval times when it took place for more than a month each summer.

You can browse all our Scarborough House fine furniture at this link.

We also started stocking a large collection of lighting and home accents by Cyan Design. They approached us to look at their collection. How could we resist when they create such spectacular pieces, like these amazing Murano style purple Bella Vetro glass chandeliers featured in Elle Decor magazine?

Cyan Designs Bella Vetro ChandelierCyan Design has a very unusual style that (as you can see) is different to Scarborough House but equally stunning. Their pieces are also great value, with surprisingly low price points for their small sculptures, candlesticks and art glass pieces.

Cyan Design Skyros Pendant Chandelier Gold LeafThis is another glamorous light fixture. The gold leaf Skyros chandelier pendant manages to be both classic and contemporary at once, with a traditional chandelier inside a chic globe made of a meshed quatrefoil design.

Cyan Design Ribbon Console Table2Although this Cyan Design ribbon console table looks streamlined and edgy in one way, I can totally see in a French Rococo living room, hallway or bedroom beside your antique French furniture! The black granite top and gold legs give it a classic note and the swirly lines are very ooh-la-la!

I could browse Cyan Design furniture and home accents all day. I hope you enjoy exploring these exceptional pieces too!

November Home Decor & Antiques Roundup

Thanksgiving trayWe hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! If you were so busy shopping, cooking and decorating for Thanksgiving that you didn’t have chance to drop by and see us on the blog, here are highlights from November so you can go back and read the stories in full. (And next year, check out our post on Easy Decor Ideas for your Traditional Thanksgiving Table. It might make life a bit simpler!)

Vintage Renaissance Table in Dining RoomMy favorite posts each month are always our client spotlights when we take a little tour of a customer’s home and see how they use the piece of furniture or decor that they bought from us. Last month was no exception as we visited Crystal B.’s Georgia kitchen to deliver a large 1950s vintage French dining table. Crystal has been hunting for the perfect table for her spacious open kitchen for 4 years and we were thrilled that this chunky Renaissance style table was the solution! See the full story and more photos of the vintage Renaissance table as well as Crystal’s lovely wrought iron pot rack packed with vintage appeal.

Kathy with her collection of Thanksgiving pilgrimsTalking of vintage appeal, we got a great response on our Facebook Page and other social media to our post about Kathy’s collection of Thanksgiving pilgrims. My mother-in-law has collected pilgrims and other Thanksgiving-themed objects for more than 30 years and her collection has grown to more than 700 pieces! We display this wonderful collection in our EuroLux Gallery window on Main Street, Newberry, SC, from October through Thanksgiving every year. People love seeing the pilgrims peeking out of our window! My Collection of Thanksgiving Pilgrims post tells you how the collection started and shows more photos.

The photos are SO inspiring and I hope that the posts help you think about how to make the guest bedroom inviting, comfortable and practical for your dear family and friends.
