Chairs, a sofa and some vintage finds




Knoll 1950's arm chair  in shaded bue, textured wool £550
I've been very busy this week getting some new bits and bobs ready to sell. First, the lovely bar frame chair above, a real beauty and has been covered in a gorgeous Designers Guild blue shaded wool. 

1940's cocktail chair £390

Secondly, a classic little cocktail chair in neutral tones, with a plain cotton/linen on the inside in a  pewter colour and a very nice textured linen on the outside and back.


Button back 1940's cocktail sofa £875

And, saving the best till last, an amazing 1940's button back cocktail sofa. It's quite rare that I get one of these and I absolutely love it. It's been covered in a gorgeous mink Designers Guild velvet on the inside and grey wool check on the outside, a pretty special piece.


1950's formica topped, splayed leg table l89 x w69 £80

And on to some other vintage pieces of furniture I have found, first up the formica topped table above. It has lovely, splayed legs and a little metal handled drawer at one end. The top is an off white colour and over all the piece is in excellent condition.  

1940's German beer hall bench, £60

This is a 1940's German beer bench from the old beer halls, you can pretty much imagine some leiderhosen clad, bearded men tucking into an ale on this. It's been painted a reddish orange colour with the natural wood showing through. I love the colour but it could be easily sanded down if you wanted a natural finish.


1940's children's school chairs, £25 each

And lastly, these super cute little old school chairs, I actually think I remember sitting on something like this when I was very little, they stir up fond emotions anyhow. They are in very good condition and there are three available, £25 each.


And I shall leave you with some pictures of my garden because it is my heart and joy, and one of my husband who comes a close second! The magnolia tree is in flower which makes the garden look amazing. It only lasts a week or two so you really have to appreciate it whilst it's there, hence me snapping it in all different lights.



Nick has been absent from all my jaunts of late because he is writing his thesis for his doctorate which needs to be a squillion pages long, poor thing. Any hoo, he has been a permanent fixture in the garden during the warm weather and is looking more tanned than me after five days in Sardinia.

Here he is enjoying the sun looking very studious!

Have a good week everyone, I'm off to bed after an exhausting weekend of socialising, I can't handle late nights anymore, I'm definitely getting old.
