Gemstones Fit for a Royal || Something Vintage Jewel Tones

We love jewel tones so much we decided to dedicate an entire post to them! What better way to pay homage to our favorite color palette than to create a roundup of some of our go-to jewel tone pieces? You’ll see perennial favorites like our Baldwin Gray Tufted Chairs and brand new pieces like the McCoy Peacock Green Velvet Chairs that we just added to our collection.

Our Billie Merlot Sofa is one of our favorites!  The photo below shows her before we made her frame a beautiful natural finish. We love her for every season!Look at these burgundy goblets!  Aren’t they amazing?  Sooo deep and beautiful.  We are in the process of adding more to our inventory as we speak!Drum roll, please!  Meet our new McCoy Peacock Green Chairs.  We are in love with this color!!  We even have a matching sofa named the Hatfield!

An Intimate Wedding, Locust Grove VA || Germanna Foundation

An Intimate Wedding, Locust Grove VA || Germanna Foundation

Season 2 of The Crown comes out on Netflix today, and we couldn’t help but be reminded of this gorgeous shoot that features our San Clemente Low Farm Table, Madeline Ivory Vintage Chairs, and props! Working alongside the planners at Sincerely Pete Events is always a blast, and this was no exception. Inspired by the work of the French painter Jean-Honoré Fragonard, this shoot is simultaneously luxurious and whimsical. Stunning jewel tones fit for a royal complement overflowing centerpieces full of lush flowers, artichokes, and painted eggs. And doesn’t the bride’s Sera Vero gown look like it jumped right out of an episode of The Crown?!

Made With Love Gathering, Washington DC || Appointed Co.

We so loved being a part of this gorgeous gathering and are super excited to finally share these photos with you all! Made With Love is all about fostering community among artists and encouraging their creation of quality products- a mission which is definitely close to our heart as we love nothing more than sourcing and designing original pieces! At the end of October, Made With Love Journal put together this sweet event for some DC artists to bond and get to know each other at Appointed Co. We were thrilled when MWL asked us to provide furniture rentals for the event (we got to show off our brand new Tenley Square Farm Tables!), and we absolutely loved getting the chance to work alongside some amazing local vendors!

A Moody Elopement, Annapolis MD || Blackwall Hitch

As November comes to a close, we thought we’d share these photos from a recent photoshoot we collaborated on at Blackwall Hitch in Annapolis, MD. Orchestrated by the talented Christine McFarlane, this moody elopement is full of deep colors, farm tables, jewel toned goblets, gorgeous flowers, and metallic accents- embodying everything that is great about autumn weddings! So as we enter December and say goodbye to the fall wedding season, enjoy this one last dose of seasonal inspiration!

Behind the Scenes @ SVR: Our NEW Tyler Bar and Back Drop

Behind the Scenes @ SVR: Our NEW Tyler Bar and Back Drop

If you follow us on Instagram, you probably know my true passion is taking forgotten, vintage pieces and turning them into something awesome–like these new Tyler Bar and Tyler Back Drop– with a bit of creativity and A LOT of elbow grease!  We do a ton of refinishing and custom building work and I realized we never really give you an opportunity to see the before and afters of our pieces—mainly because I get so excited to start the pieces I never take before photos! But I’m going to make a concerted effort to start taking “before” pictures so you can see what we start with and then see the finished product!

Baltimore-DC Event Planner Lauren Niles asked us to build a natural wood bar and bar back and I suggested using architectural salvage elements and she loved that idea, so we went to town figuring out elements that would make for show-stopping pieces.  My husband Zach is a genius at figuring out how to transform elements that I pick out into bars and backdrops and he did not disappoint on this one–am I right?!  We used architectural pieces that were once in a 1880s house in Philadelphia and constructed the Tyler Bar and Tyler Backdrop out of them.  It took tons of stripper, sweat, and elbow grease, but we are so thrilled with the results!  I hope you are too!  Introducing our new Tyler Bar and Back Drop and Bar Back!

XO, Dawn

SNEAK PEAK || Our Handmade Bloomington China

We are SO excited to give you a sneak peak of our hand-fired Bloomington china coming Fall 2017 to our inventory. We collaborated with local artisan White Hearth Supply to design this one-of-a-kind line that you won’t find anywhere else.  (It even has our name on the back, eeee!!!) These gold and white beauties are perfectly imperfect and are adorned in real gold around the edges. We think they are simply gorgeous and are so excited for this new collaboration with fellow #girlboss and maker White Hearth Supply!

The Something Vintage Rentals’ Creed

The Something Vintage Rentals’ Creed

Since having Baby June, I’ve been focusing on what Something Vintage means, what we believe here, and how we are different from other rentals compnaies. We believe that having handmade and authentic vintage pieces is a big deal. It takes A LOT of extra work to overhaul a piece that was once forgotten and give it new, beautiful life but that’s why we do what we do—we take the forgotten and make it beautiful again and continue on the story of each piece. This is what we do, this is what makes us tick. After a lot of reflection, I came up with our Creed (below). I love it and hope that you do too!

The SVR CREED:   Handmade and vintage pieces are our obsession, our passion, and why we get up in the morning. ☀️ We believe that by choosing hand-salvaged timber and heirloom furniture frames for our collections, something beautiful happens. 🌈 Our pieces are inherently special because no two are exactly alike and each has a story that has stood the test of time. ⏳ We, at Something Vintage, transform centuries-old wood and salvaged architectural elements into kick-a$$ custom bars and tables. 💪 We tirelessly hunt down forgotten sofas and chairs, painstakingly refinish their frames, and reupholster them in rich fabrics to continue on their stories. 🛠 We believe handmade and authentically vintage are worth the sweat, time, and tears it takes to bring these beauties back to life. 😇 It’s what gets our blood going, and it’s why we do what we do. Welcome to our version of vintage, where craft, patina, style, and awesomeness reign supreme. Boom! 💥 Who’s with us?

Oatlands Historic House and Gardens, Leesburg VA || Greenhouse Editorial

Oatlands Historic House and Gardens in Leesburg was the perfect setting for this greenhouse editorial shoot with Jordan and Alaina Photography. We wanted a soft, romantic, dreamy vibe from this shoot (the drizzly, overcast weather added perfectly to this!) You can see our Natural Farm tables with our Sonoma Crossback Chairs fit this romantic vibe perfectly and the rich texture of the reclaimed wood Natural Farm Tables wood complimented these gauzy linens from Torn and Tied!

We incorporated timeless, antique, silver pieces throughout the shoot and opted for soft, dusty tones and colors. We love this shift from gold and think we’ll be seeing a lot more silver and dusty hues in the next year!  What do you think?!

Welcome Baby June, the Newest Addition to the SVR Team!

Welcome Baby June, the Newest Addition to the SVR Team!

I am overjoyed to welcome June Eloise Baldwin as the newest member of our SVR team!  If you were wondering why we’ve been a bit quiet on the blog as of late, now you have this cute answer!  She has been keeping us on our toes and has added some extra cuteness to the SVR office.   I am so grateful to our SVR team to rocking it and being tolerant of a newborn in our warehouse digs and for Zach for helping so much with big brother Hank!

Welcome, Baby June!  Our hearts are overflowing!
