The one with the swedish armoire

I LOVE this vignette in the front of my shop. The green and gold thing just came together. Even better in person. (books, painting, print SOLD)
The new, more neutral front window. It's interesting how people are actually sitting and hanging out up there. The fabulous pair of vintage chairs, recovered in hemp, will not last long for sure. Update all pieces are SOLD

Isn't this the prettiest chair? It's vintage, new down, covered in the most durable hemp fabric. The nailheads are put atop white cotton twill tape. I like how it can be masculine and feminine.
A new vignette with my beautiful rose colored ralph lauren distressed linen on this fab antique chair. Don't think it's not cozy, because it is. Update - chair SOLD
My newest exciting purchase. 6 beautifully framed Elizabeth Blackwell original hand colored botanicals from 1755. Matted in linen. Yes, they are for sale.
Last but certainly not least. My freaking amazingly wonderful Swedish Armoire. This has been hiding at my house because I was holding it to use in a showcase house in December. The homeowner does not want to move her current French armoire out (which is fine, I can work with it), so I will be bringing this into the shop very soon.

The one with my cat in the hammock

I could not let a month go by, so here we are in July. Happy Birthday America! This is my current very subtle red white and blue front window.

Vintage wicker and wrought iron table, super cute, super heavy. SOLD
As promised, the repaired Pennsylvania trunk. Amazing work from my wood guru, as usual.I hate to show this, because the set of four french iron chairs with custom linen slips went super quick, but isn't it fabulous? SOLD

Here are my cogs (or whatever they are) from Alameda a few months ago in their current location.
And my man Butters taking a snooze in the hammock. He needs the hat for sun protection.
