Vintage Finds Around The City…

February 1, 2012 by admin

Sometimes I see things out and about that I just have to share with you.  Sometimes I buy them – more times, I don’t.  But they’re worth oohing and ahhing about either way, don’t you think?

P.S. if I told you were I saw all of these, I’d have to kill you!  Trade secret…he he he…

I’ve always loved this style of metal garden chair ever since spotting them in Martha Stewart’s Gardening Month By Month from the early 1990′s.  Her’s were painted a glorious green, but I spotted them this afternoon in white in the HBO Grey Gardens film too…

This lovely little cabinet in a perfectly old and distressed paint finish really caught my eye.  It’s diminutive scale means it would fit in perfectly in many a bathroom for some decorative, unfitted storage.  I believe someone I know and work with may have bought it and had it lacquered in shiny black for a project.  But this is unconfirmed so it may still be up for grabs.  Love it!

How perfectly classic are these bergeres? Depending on the colour scheme, I think they could work perfectly as is!  Maybe in a room with pale lilac walls and chalky white mouldings?  The tan upholstery and natural wood would be a striking pairing with lilac.

And finally a petit little chinoiserie chandelier.  Perfect for a bedroom, a powder room or entry hall.  Sadly, I believe this one ended up in a posh Rosedale shop for much more than the original price of $145!  You snooze you lose Michael!  Curses!

    Aw c’mon, you HAVE to tell us where this is. Such a tease to show us all this great stuff and then keep it a secret!
