I am taking 13 newly finished pieces to October High Point market. My fabulous paint finish designer created some incredible paint finishes for these new pieces. If you are attending market, please come see me at The Suites at Market Square, space 1-805. Top floor near the escalators.
All of my pieces are designed to flow seamlessly in a room with Swedish antiques. Next to each other, you can hardly tell the difference.
A classic Gustavian buffet. I'm in love with this piece. Six legs and curved ends. 60" long, 39" high and 21" deep, four doors, two drawers and finished in pale grey with silver leaf on the top trim. I am definitely keeping one of these for my house. It looks so great with some of my antique Swedish cabinets.
I named this occasional chair Sabylund after Sabylund Manor, a beautiful home two hours from Stockholm built in 1787 and still occupied today by the same family. Chairs almost identical to these are in the manor. You can also see them in the Nov/Dec 2011 issue of Veranda magazine. I have three favorite chairs and this is one of them. Hand carved in maple with 8-way hand-tied springs in the seat.
This is a curvy Rococo chair. I brought back this newborn's ancestor from Sweden on my last trip and my guys hand carved it exactly in maple. I designed some brass fleur de lis braces for the back so it could be removable to switch out the back fabric when you want a change of design or color for an event or holiday without having to remove the front fabric.
Here is another reproduction of an antique chair I brought back from Sweden. I made this one in two sizes, a dining room chair and an occasional living room chair. Hand carved in maple with a pretty grey finish. Of course you can order any finish you want. It would look fun in our aqua finish. I love how the carving comes off the back and turns and swirls to form the arm.
This floor mirror is 94" tall and 43.5" wide. In textured creme and hand applied gold leaf. All the details are hand carved including the moldings which were hand carved in place. Antiqued mirror glass. This piece will look good 300 years from now.
This triangular shaped sunburst mirror is hand carved in maple. No plastic here. Then silver leaf and gold leaf was hand applied. Mirror is antiqued glass. 41" wide at bottom and 39" tall. Another classic piece.
We made another size in this oval back dining arm chair. This one is 26" wide at the seat so it is narrower to place on the sides of rectangular tables if you want arm chairs there instead of armless side chairs. We also make this one in 28" width for host chairs or for larger round tables. We also just finished this armless side chair in 24" width to save space along the sides of a rectangular table. All the oval-back chairs have eight-way hand-tied springs for comfort at long dinner parties. This one, too, is hand carved.
We made this Rococo dining chair in a smaller size, so now you can choose between a large or smaller chair. We have the larger ones in our kitchen and just love them. My husband is very comfortable in it.
This occasional or tea table was remade in a textured finish created by my fabulous paint guy from Indiana.
This one got a new texturized finish as well.
We made a few small changes to this wave rim chair also.
Here is the Gustavian occasional chair. It was made wider and deeper than the dining chair. All the detail you see here was carved by hand.
I have a full line up of new pieces for the next April market. Always exciting to make new products. Lots of work go into making quality furniture so it will last for generations. Hope you like these.
