My lovely designer Celia Bryson asked me to assemble the list of furniture I’d be keeping for our move…. which frankly, is everything. Here’s a random sampling of the pieces I’ve acquired:
Custom Tuxedo-style queen-sleeper sofa in KravetSmart red fabric. Bench seat and two back cushions. Very comf! Two Rejuvenation rugs (7×10 each); vintage Scandinavian Falcon sling chair; Eames lounge; Visual Comfort cantilevered reading lamp; enormous plaster and canvas palm tree; champagne cork stool
Montauk green velvet sofa; pair of Karl Springer-style horn standing lamps; enormous wicker hinged basket; vintage bamboo hexagon cocktail table (paint matte black?); giant pencil.
Midecentury console (was Greg’s desk console. Can we give it back to him?); custom bent-wood and rawhide bench (an objet, not actually comfortable); some art, including 1970s silk screen of zebras. Lots. Of. Art. And book.
3 x pillows: denim & check w/ chocolate tape + 2 bolsters (check)
Giant bolster in Lisa Fine fabric.
2 vintage gilded switch-lamps
Ballard Designs bench in honeydew melon velvet. Custom rug, turquoise + lemon (from Studio Four by Carrier & Co)
Small secretary (meh provenance but nice storage/org for my personal desk) + low midcentury bureau (Greg’s clothes)
Sophie bureau + oversized gilt mirror
Nice late 19th c. console. Has held dining room stuff (linens, napkins, occasion pieces) and arts/crafts materials. The Masai shield needs a home; it was my father’s. (The Annie Selke metallic-weave rug LINK was one of my favorites. Feels great underfoot!)
< not me, but is my Ikea king bed. The cute tie-on linen cushions can be re-made with our own fabric (not critical, just a sweet idea.)
6 molded plastic dining chairs from Zone Maison (4 yellow, 1 nordic green, and 1 pink).
Vintage Parsons chair, just purchased at an estate sale.
Rattan glass console + apothecary standing lamp, also from an estate sale.
Vintage Italian bamboo-motif folding screen x 2. Because…. why not?
Ugh. Lives in basement for a reason.
