I particularly love to help my friends with interior decorating suggestions and consulting on possible pieces of furniture to purchase and paint. My client (obviously a friend) and her husband had been looking to purchase a small table as well as a secretary and we’ve been trading text messages when either of us come upon something of interest. As soon as she sent me this picture from a local antique mall, I knew it was the “one!”
We met in college when going through sorority rush week. Although I didn’t pledge her house, we remained acquintances and some 20 years later after moving back to my hometown, I ran into her at the local gym. What great luck! We’ve been in the same book club and she and her husband just moved into my neighborhood just one block over.
We spent an hour or so looking over different hues of red that would complement the color in her rug but not overpower the other furniture pieces in her dining room.
This table is the perfect size to go almost anywhere in a house. My clients have it nestled against an angled wall in their dining room.
With such great detail, this piece was just begging to be glazed. I love how it makes the inlays stand out.
I would’ve snatched this piece up if I had spied it at the antique mall. It’s a great signature piece that will look wonderful in any room of my client’s house.
