Our series of client spotlight blog posts shows how our antique furniture and lighting look in our customers’ homes. These are some of our most popular blog posts among people who read our antiques blog! Anyone who is interested in home decor enjoys a sneak peek inside someone else’s house. It’s also a good way to see how other people live with antiques and incorporate them into today’s homes. Plus, thanks to the kindness of our customers, we get a mini tour of some mighty fine homes!
Here is a roundup of our antique furniture customer spotlights for the last six months, in case you missed seeing them. Click the links to read the full story and see more photos.
This is an example of one of those mighty fine homes I was telling you about! We delivered a handsome antique French Renaissance buffet to the this gorgeous historic home built in 1810 in Winnsboro, SC. Read the antique Renaissance buffet blog post to see photographs of the interior including our intricately carved antique buffet in the charming dining room and several of our vintage chandeliers hanging in other rooms.
Greg and I personally delivered a stunning French antique Brittany bed and a Brittany buffet to our customer May in Pensacola Beach, FL. May retired here but she used to travel a lot to Europe and she loves Paris, so she especially enjoys buying antique French furniture. May bought an 1880 chestnut wood French Brittany antique bed, heavily carved with scenes of villagers and windmills. She also bought a Brittany style buffet dating to the same year, and asked us if we could alter the buffet to fit a TV for her bedroom. We could and we did! See more photos of the converted buffet and of May’s 14th floor apartment with its lovely views in the Antique Brittany Buffet and Bed blog post.
Fran P. in Concord, NC, bought this beautiful set of vintage French Rococo dining chairs for her dining room. The six mahogany vintage French dining chairs date to 1950 and the chairs feature curvy lines from the cabriole legs to the carved curlicues.
The soft pinky beige fabric upholstery is also pretty in Fran’s dining room. It blends very well with the colors in her rug and the gilded Rococo mirror,

The armoire is carved in the Normandy style, dating to 1890, with a large carved vase of flowers on the top and many carvings of birds.
Paul is going to convert the armoire himself. Lane is pleased to have a terrific full-length mirror in the master bedroom and she likes the fact that the mirrored doors will hide the gun collection.
See our blog post Antique Armoire Repurposed as a Gun Cabinet for more pictures including the antique Louis XV Buffet the couple bought from us for their dining room and another example of how a bookcase was repurposed as a gun cabinet!
