The Empire returns. This time in the form of two dressers. The first, and ready for a new home, is a four drawer mahogany beauty that is in very good condition. The grain patterns are striking and the shape of the top drawer and detailing is classic Empire period. The second dresser, arriving sometime later this week, is a more unusual piece. This will surely merit before and after photos! Be sure to stop by to watch the work in progress.
Our 6 month anniversary celebration was a huge success! Thanks to all who came by. Many of our larger pieces now have new homes. As a result, the Redeux Spa is working overtime…and then some. Many of your requests for certain pieces have been found and I’m getting these up on the shop floor as soon as possible. In no particular order here is what is available now or will be before weeks end:
Trunks. We now have two available. One is a whimsical decoupage, stencil and hand-painted with rope handles. It would make an excellent end table or coffee table. The second is a rather sturdy fellow made of oak and most likely made late 1800’s to very early 1900’s. Great condition!
Coffee tables. We now have a really nice mahogany table with uncommon (bird) claw feet and a protective glass insert top.
Sofa table. A table that might also double as a writing desk is ready. It has a nicely sized top drawer.
Accent tables. Our Tailor’s table is a rare find. Made of oak it is surprisingly lightweight and has folding legs held in place by a unique wood bow-strap on the underside. It would make a striking lamp table.
Muffin Table. A three- tiered wood display piece, thus named because of its round, muffin-like shelves. But, I suppose some freshly baked muffins would fit nicely, too!
We also have some unusual accent pieces that will be coming up soon. Great for gift-giving or for treating yourself. Finally, the Ranch Oak desk and corner piece have been finished and are awaiting a new home! Both pieces have loads of hand-detailing and a newly restored rich, warm natural finish. It is pictured at right as our "Featured Item".
Ask and ye shall receive! We have been asked numerous times to find really nicely scented, quality drawer liner paper. While I sometimes find it hard to believe, not everyone is especially fond of the smell of turpentine or wax. Well, Redeux has done it again. We have located a manufacturer that makes wonderfully scented drawer paper that will make everything smell great. And, like everything at Redeux Vintage Furniture, these liner papers are made in the USA! They should arrive sometime the week of October 19-20.
We are getting in more scented candles, too. The response to our line of JeT’aime candles has been terrific. Long lasting, great scents…made in the USA, of course.
Watch for our holiday hours which will begin in November. And, for some very special events!
Thanks, and hope to see you again soon.
