New posts and a GREAT opportunity for Californians and New Jerseyans!!! - October 17, 2011

Don't forget to check at the bottom for the GREAT opportunities
for Californians and New Jerseryans.....

I recently found this set of 10 "TO DIE FOR!!" Swedish Gustavian sidechairs.
They were from a New York estate originally purchased from Florian Papp in Manhattan for $49,000.00.  I could just cry that my dining room is finished, but that's what is great about my business, I get to buy them anyway and feel like they're mine!  These should be handled like an adoption, they are so special....It is so very rare to find a set of 10 chairs, never mind a set of 10 SPECTACULAR chairs...I know because I looked for myself for an eternity... They are covered in cream and steel gray silk...

The gray upholstery looks blue here but it's the camera the carving

h 33.75, w 19, d 16.25   $8,200.00 set

This dining room I pulled from one of my favorite blogs (mentioned below) it shows a set of chairs just like a set of 6 I found in France covered in leather with original nailheads. I  love the wall color with white painted trim.  I just realized I also have the mirror (below)
This is a traditional design but, by incorporating  antiques,  both the chairs and mirror add importance. Without an antique, the room lacks feeling and soul...

Great  patina....

Another dining room with simple classic cherry chairs and a Venetian chandelier so similar to the chairs and chandelier I found in France (below)

Vintage Cherry Classical Sidechairs    FRANCE
h 34, w 18.5, d 17   $5,600.00 set of 10

I love how the X's round at their joining with the chair back....wonderful Cherry...

Another dining room... although I don't love a frilly pleated skirt (sorry Joni),  the chairs look great in this room.  I know the room needs softening with the iron chandelier, the rustic French grocery sign and the sawbuck table and lack of a rug, but I would have used a flatter skirt.  These chairs are similar to a set I found in Belgium that I just got back from the upholsterer....

My set has really nice turned legs with a stretcher for more stability.

h 40 w 20 d 19  $3,795.00 set of 8

Tawny wheat upholstery.

Another set with layered each his own but I feel these probably need recovering as the burlap is REAL, the scratchy kind.  They do this over in France just to make them look okay for selling purposes. The frames are terrific, layered gesso paint.

Beautiful dining room with the Swedish server I have available and on sale, below and, also the giltwood mirror shown above the painted piece (pictured on the website).
I like the architectural table base and the old shutters or panels flanking the server AND the silver collection centerpiece.

Best regards,

P.S. Now for all my CALIFORNIAN followers...  I have a truck going to San Bernardino and it's not full.  The trucker is offering a flat rate of $150.00-$250.00 on anything you purchase to truck it to his warehouse in San Bernardino.   As you all know this is a great opportunity as the freight cost are high to California from the east coast.  Once there you can either pick it up yourself or arrange delivery with him (I'll help with that).  Please let me know right away if you have had your heart set on anything as the truck is leaving in 3 weeks.

P.P.S. And for New Jersey... Meredith Guida from Trouvaille has been working on a terrific event in New Jersey!   The Overlook Hospital Auxiliary has organized a kitchen tour of 7 beautiful homes in glorious Summit on Thursday, October 20th from 10 to 3pm with the latest and greatest of all things KITCHEN!  The group is very excited to feature all of our local talent including Heidi Piron Designs, Wilkat Designs, Cabri Kitchen, Pat Walsh, Marissa Lafiosca and more, many of whom are customers of Trouvaille.  This tour is raising money specifically for Ovarian Cancer Research at the Overlook Medical Center.  I can't wait to take a peek and support the cause, I hear it's fabulous!!  Tickets are available at Lois Schneider Realty & Overlook Downtown or visit the website at  for reservation forms.
