9. Fireplace Mantles
Want to create a complete scene? We have been collecting a few classic fireplace mantles, including the one below with ornate Corinthian columns – lovely to create a ceremony alter, or add it to a lounge to create a beautifully composed environment.
8. Upholstered Stage Surround
Our grey stage surround is upholstered with tufted cream panels to match our upholstered bar – and is designed to be the front panel of a raised stage for performers and anyone with the spotlight on them. No more worrying about ugly stage legs or bedskirts. The entertainment and toasts can now be gorgeously photographed from head to toe. 18′ x 16ft x 8ft, can be customized for your stage.
We love renting our bars as DJ booths as well, and work perfectly to hide all the technology, wires and equipment.
7. Chestnut Pergola
Oh golly, how we love our winter project and our pergola will be available for rental in April 2015. We were inspired by the pergolas that are popping up all over the West Coast and Instagram and thought to bring some of that lovely indoor/outdoor comfort to D.C. Hand hewn chestnut barn beams are being refurbished in a canopy that can have flowers, vines, linens, or lights draped and hung. We’ve been collecting inspiration on our Pinterest. It’s the perfect framing for a headtable/sweetheart table (A single farmtable fits comfortably underneath). We imagine it as a lovely shaded arbor for a lounge, a setting for a dramatic bar, or as a welcoming ceremonial Chuppah. 10′ x 10 ‘
We are going to cozy up this winter upholstering and tufting berry toned ottomans, perfect for cocktail hour and seating around a dance floor, the ottomans encourage conversation and repose while still allowing 360 access to the party. The ottomans are also perfect with our mirrored silver trays as a coffee (or champagne) table.
5. Taylors- Gray Velvet and Gold Cane Chairs
These chairs are lovely – we just never got them on the site! The soft velvet is so luscious – and the pair of them together with the gold painted wicker are great additions to any lounge or seating area – or as creative sweetheart seating. Just be careful, these pretty babies are comfortable!
Our white vintage buffet was getting so popular we couldn’t keep up with demand! So we distressed a classical buffet to it’s barebones rustic pine for a woodsy look, and upcycled another to a high gloss gold. No matter what your style; modern and chic, natural, or romantic there is a buffet for you.
3. Garden Party Chairs
We’ve blogged about our Palmer-Snyder folding chairs before – but they are really just so lovely we can’t help but list them again. Original post-war wooden folding chairs from Pennsylvania – the Palmers have witnessed 6 decades of parties, weddings, graduations and church picnics in my home state of Indiana. We were so lucky to get them, and then to bring them back to their original glory. Every time I sit in one, I can feel the spirit of all the little old ladies with lace gloves enjoying their cake and smile at the 3 generations of memories these chairs have helped make.
2. Nadia – White Lounge Sofa with a Distressed Frame
This sofa is gorgeous! A completely natural, undyed fabric was used to reupholstered this vintage couch – and we scrubbed the frame clean to expose the raw beauty of the wood before whitewashing it and allowing the unusual carving to pop in contrast. It’s the perfect backdrop to a group photo, it’s lowkey yet stunning. She just went out for a test-drive for her first wedding at Longview Gallery in D.C with the white parlour chairs and mirrored end table bringing an old world sensibility to the modern lounge.
1. Bar and Bar Backs
We’ve been obsessing over bars and signature cocktail stations for most of the summer. After seeing our whitewashed, Maxwell and upholstered bars in action we realized how much more obsessing there is to do! We love them! Let’s face it, your guests always seems to waiting in line for a drink – but these bars make it an event! Guests linger, flirt and laugh. Why not make the bar into a little speakeasy? We are collecting vintage gilted mirrors, building frames, shelves and backdrops so that your bartenders have easy access to glassware, and bottles behind them – and photos, menus and decor can be displayed. We haven’t seen too many like it yet, but have been keeping a page of inspiration and would love to hear your thoughts. So roll up your sleeves 2015 is going to be a year of delicious cocktails!
