We’re at the point in a few of our projects where we’ve needed to pound the pavement on the antiquing side. For us, we begin all of our rooms with a detailed furniture plan specifying exactly where each piece of furniture will go and what its dimensions are. From there, we decide which pieces will be custom-made and what fabrics will be used on them. Fabric for drapes and any decorative pillows or other upholstered pieces is then chosen. After all of this is set, the fun (for us) begins! We get to fill in with one of a kind antique and vintage pieces. Last week we took a couple of trips to some of our favorite antique stores. Furniture plan in hand, we were ready to go!


We fell in love with his gorgeous red lacquer coffee table from a Paris flea market.

Square coffee tables are hard to come by, so when we find them we often jump on them. This one looks like it could be a Luten Clary Stern piece.

A gilt faux bambou coffee table with glass top–pretty for either a small space or a large one with multiple seating areas.

A beautiful Jansen coffee table in very good condition. As you can see, we were on the lookout for coffee tables this trip!

A pair of Jansen-style side tables that would work well on either side of a sofa in a living room we’re doing.

These side tables were also gorgeous and very glam. We loved the mirrored tops and x bases.

A contender for a home office we’re working on in a more modern space, this Lucite lamp might be perfect on the desk.

A FAB French chair upholstered in a FAB silk chintz. Come on!!
