Sultry Slipper Chairs & Versatile Vintage

Hi and happy Tuesday!  We've got some new vintage at the store and I can't wait to show it off! 

First on the list is this sexy little slipper chair, c.1960, has a tufted seat and back with grey/blue linen upholstery, graceful cabriole legs and a gently curving back.  It is amazingly comfortable and beautiful at the same time.  I can see this in the bedroom placed beside a mirrored side chest topped with a sparkly lamp - with maybe a gilt mirror above that  . . .  the possibilities are endless!  Gorgeous!  You can see more details here.

Price: $250

Excellent, vintage piece newly upholstered

Versatile Vintage Etagere

Next is this versatile vintage etagere is tall and narrow and made of polished chrome and looks like something Milo Baughman would have designed.  But here's the kicker . . . It can be a lot of different things - the side pieces swivel so that they're parallel and glass can be placed into it to make a shelving display - or as a screen/room divider (as shown in the first photo) - or I was thinking it could be put on the long side and a longer piece of glass put a top to make a coffee table or scatter cushions along each side for seating for a Gypsy chic dinner party! The options are endless ...  You can see more details here.

Price: $650

Excellent vintage condition, with some minor oxidation to the chrome appropriate with use and age.

Internal Vision: Aleksandra Nogina & Crafthunters

Seems I have a new crush . . . the recipient of my infatuation is a blog called CRAFTHUNTERS. The creator and editor of CRAFTHUNTERS is Aleksandra Nogina.

Only a year old, launching in May of 2011, the sight is dedicated to the craft world: here you can find cool crafthunters’ pics, some fresh and simple DIY ideas from across the craft stylish universe and, of course, meet the most talented craftsmen on the planet.

Noginas' goal is to discover some new names in the craft universe and dish on what she loves, desires, and admires. It's a ideal blog for those of us whose style is defined by an internal vision.

Simply Brilliant: Puchsia & Furple

Classic and iconic . . . . Coco Chanel

I've always been a pink/fuchsia junkie and now purple is inching its way up the list as another favorite color.  I love both colors, most often together.  If you design a dress, bottle a perfume, glaze some china or snap a photo of a field with lavender or fuchsia or pink somewhere in it . . . . I'm hooked!

And just for funzies I like to transpose the first letters of the colors purple and fuchsia . . . . to each his own, as they say.  So recently I did a little research and discovered that purple symbolizes mystery, as well as royalty. And fuchsia is said to be associated with emotional stability . . . . which is why I guess I'm drawn to it . . . . I could always use a little more emotional stability . . . . just ask my psychopharmacologist!

Here are some very inspirational and brilliant images that I have pinned on Pinterest . . . hope you enjoy!
