The "Seventies"

What a turbulent time in history. Who can forget the great oil embargo, the Watergate scandal, the end of the Vietnam War, and disco! But the furniture! Bold fabric patterns, the colors brown, purple, orange, and yellow, shag-pile carpets, lacquered furniture, and lava lamps! The use of teak wood and paneling regained popularity. OUCH! So here is our cool couch and a Henredon walnut coffee table of the 1970"s.

New Arrivals

Heywood Wakefield

Celebrate our 1950's rattan bar. Every rumpus room and pool party entertained on a bar like this. I'm sure no shortage of cigarettes and booze. It is amazing to see a Heywood Wakefield set like this in such wonderful condition.

American of Martinsville

Two stunning pieces. The company was founded in 1906. It was vast by the end of the 1950's, and proudly offered furniture representing almost every broad design era. The vitrine is a limited edition. Only 300 were made and this is number 238.

Vernis Martin

This vitrine is nothing short of magnificent. We decided to give the vintage jewelry a grand display. I don't think we can part with it!

I Am Pretty

The vanity is from NYC and was given as a birthday present to a lucky 15 year old in the 1960's. I was told the painting of the floral design was done by a French artist!

Tiger Oak Desk

This turn of the century piece is showing a little Eastlake flavor.

Pennsylvania House Cherry

My fave. This piece would be good for the guest room or a boy to young man.
