Five Fabulous Finds

Recently found vintage and antique pieces that bring character and charm to our rooms.

We’re never not shopping, and we’re always shopping for a million different things at once. Armed with lists of “To Be Found” items and their desired dimensions at all times, we don’t think we’ll ever tire of the thrill of finding the perfect piece. From high end New York City dealers to the dusty fields of Massachusetts, where we are buying at any given time depends entirely on the style of the project and the interests of the client. A few recent finds illustrating this range of periods and style — we love to mix it up!

No. 1

These original circa 1745 watercolor botanicals came out of house in Kennebunkport, Maine. We hung them in the nursery of our recently completed Brooklyn Heights brownstone project.

No. 2

We purchased this fine French Art Deco veneered cherrywood dining table by Dominique for one of our projects downtown. It will be paired with a custom upholstered banquette and 4 Peder Moos chairs.

No. 3

Two different vintage 1960’s Orrefors pendants we have in mind for a powder room we’re finishing up. Orrefors glass pieces were made in southern Sweden, and became popularized at the Paris Exhibition in 1925.

No. 4

This is a beautifully restored Italian table circa 1780 with wonderful carved wood escutcheons and tapered legs. It’s going into a project we’ll be installing in a few weeks.

No. 5

We came across this camel back sofa at the 1st Dibs showroom in NYC. We just loved the modernized lines of it.

No. 6

These small scale carved wood lamps would be wonderful on a mantle. They’re made so unique with the addition of such exaggerated lampshades. We’re loving bleached wood everything lately…

Check back soon for more fabulous finds!
