Combining Texture

Our latest piece is a set of early 1950's black wire and upholstered Eames dining chairs. We decided to pair them with a rustic oak wine table in a cold concrete environment. The product of combining mid century vintage pieces with true 19th century antiques is very refreshing.

An English Bed and Breakfast

The English countryside is one of my favorite places to go buying antiques. Bath is one of those exceptional towns that embodies "old English style". Remodelista recently featured the vacation home of Patrick Williams, of design-build firm Berdoulat. Williams' vacation home has been converted into a bed and breakfast and opened to the public.
