T's Ten, Week of 4/6

It looks like spring is here to stay for a little while, and we couldn't be more happy for it to arrive! Our dealers have been hard at work, re-merchandising their booths and bringing in their latest finds. There are some fun things in the shop right now, and I certainly have my eyes on a few things. Here are some of my favorite picks in the shop this week. Have a look!

1. Check out this white leather chesterfield from Bernhardt. This one is brand new, so this piece is ready to last throughout the coming years and will only get better with age! You know how I love aged leather:) I also think the white color is a great modern touch to such a classic style of furniture. Dealer #444, White Leather Chesterfield, $2495.

 2. While we're on the subject of leather, this vintage wingback chair is calling my name! I love the tufting, and this piece's versatility will allow it to sit pretty in both traditional or modern settings. Dealer #83, Leather Wingback Chair, $495.

 3. This palm tree sculpture is pretty awesome, and it would look really fun next to the two leather pieces I've already shown you. The trees have a great copper patina, and the base has a formation of crystals. It also makes me wish I was at the beach right about now:) Dealer #076, Vintage Palm Tree Sculpture, $118.

4. I'm loving these vintage clocks and am considering one for our kitchen. They've got such a great industrial look, don't you think? Come grab the middle one before I do!! Dealer #02, Vintage Clocks ranging in price from $45-65.

 5. Can you guess how this table was originally used? ....As a sculptor's table, of course! The sculptor would work with clay, stone, etc. and could easily turn the top around and around to make it easier to work. These tables are also pretty hefty, and are designed so that they can hold a lot of weight. So of course that means that it would make a perfect lazy susan coffee table and fun conversation piece. Dealer #44, Sculptor's Table, $595. 

 6. These vintage cabinets are a great retro relic. Used in a barbour shop to store supplies, these would be perfect in a salon or tattoo parlour to serve their original function . Or, if you're so inclined, they could function as taller nightstands! #AE1, Vintage Barbour Shop Cabinets, $750 ea.

 7. I am really in love with these Japanese advertisement aprons. I think they have a great graphic design element to them, and while you could indeed use them as aprons, I'm probably going to tie mine around the handle on the  front of our stove to add some interest there. It's hard to choose which one, though! Dealer #14, Japanese Advertisement Aprons, $68 ea.

8. I've never seen a credenza quite like this one.Each side has  sliding tambour doors that open up to plenty of extra storage. But let's focus on those doors! So cool, right? This piece would function especially well in a dining room or used as an entertainment center.   Dealer #133, Danish Tambour Door Credenza, $1950.

 9. I've always dreamed of having built-in bookcases, but this pair would be the next best thing. These are vintage Ethan Allen freestanding bookcases that have a custom painted finish. The creamy white backing is a great way to highlight decorative objects while the cabinets below can hide DVDs, games, etc. Dealer #800, $495 each. 

 10. I also really love the look of this 1920s era Jacobean walnut chair. The velvet cushion adds a sweet touch, and the petite size would make it perfect in an entryway or as a side chair in a living room. Dealer #24, Jacobean chair, $198.
