New Arrival The Federal Period

The Federal style is at its most suave and elegant in the furniture of Duncan Phyfe, a Scotch cabinetmaker who arrived in New York about 1795.  He did not originate a style; he translated prevailing fashions into fine craftsmanship.  Thomas Sheraton, then the current English favorite, and the French Directoire cabinetmakers set the style.  All these designers were  profoundly influenced by a rediscovery of the classic splendors of Greece and Italy.  Our sofa is from 1939 and boasting of the original fabric in a lovely mint green.

New Arrival

This huge oak dining set is very appealing to our oak lovers.  Although it is only twenty five years old, it gives a feeling of antique.  Stretched out it is eight feet long.  During holiday dinners, put the one that you don't like at the end!

Signs of Spring

When we need to feel Spring, up pops the March  Bloomsburg Antique Show and Sale.  We have yet to miss one.  The weather was a tropical 60 degrees and love was in the air.  We spent two exhausting days there and sad to see it end.

Our favorite person.

Looking forward to the Christmas show Nov. 9th and 10th.
