We wanted to start 2011 off with a fresh new look. In the last few days, we have rearranged, redecorated, and restocked the store. We brought in new one-of-a-kind items that have been waiting in our storage, and organized it all into four room settings.
From the center of the store, we made flag banners using old paper to create the look of a tent for a fun and unique start to 2011.
Behind the counter, this antique window was salvaged from a church in France. The weathered wood of the window frame is a perfect color on our reclaimed siding.

Painting of the charming historic town of Lincoln, UK $225
I love this room setting. The sofa is slip-covered in a gorgeous grayed sea foam color. The coffee table is made from reclaimed barn wood and the wall drying /cup rack is from France. The over scaled wicker baskets and the large kitchen cupboard, filled with vintage ironstone are both from England.

This dining room setting has some of my favorite upholstered pieces. The dining table is made from reclaimed barn wood and has a beautiful inlaid herringbone pattern. The slip-covered linen chairs go perfectly with the tufted linen banquette. At the ends of the table, we had vintage wing-back chairs reupholstered in the perfect stormy gray fabric. As the centerpiece, a pair of French concrete roosters make a statement.

In this last dining room setting, we played with white on white. The dining room table top is planks of reclaimed barn wood and sits upon a painted trestle base. Laced up slip-covered chairs surround the table, while layers of antique English cake pedestals and a collection of white architectural finials act as the centerpiece. The "buffet" table is an old factory piece with an added glass top for a unique piece of furniture. The buffet is dressed with an antique French Trumeau mirror and a selection of glass serving pieces. On the back wall, we installed a unique vintage candle sconce, and we found a re-wired old glass chandelier to give the room it's charm.
