A river of furniture, that is. Here are some of the pieces we just imported. They're all hand carved. They are also my excuse for not posting more the past couple of weeks.
We've got the entire front room painted and one side room painted and papered.
When I get it all put together I'm going to post some pictures.
Lion Tub Chairs
We always sell these as a pair but I envision a set of four around a game table. I'm not really a huge fan of lions but these are my exception. They're comfy to!
I love this bed. Flame mahogany, four posters, rods all around for curtains or sheers. Can't you imagine it with pillows piled high and a pretty fabric wound around the poles or drapes across the back? One of my sponsors, Ma Jolie Maison Fabrics and Drapes sent me some custom chintz drapes I'm thinking of using around the back of the bed, against the spiced orange wall on the left.
We've got several benches in but this is my favorite. Love the carving, love the button tufted top.
French Country Wheat Back Chairs
Irish Trestle Table
One of my favorite armoires we carry...
You've seen these chairs in lots of my tablescapes. I have four of these around my breakfast table, upholstered in a different fabric.
These French Country footstools / ottomans come in a set of three sizes, which we sell individually. I've got a set with blue fabric and another set with a gold fabric. Love these to!
I think this fireplace surround / mantle has an Art Deco feel.
I'll have to dress this tea trolley up one day for Lady Katherine.

The top of this torchere stand comes off, revealing a hidden storage area below. Not sure what I'd hide inside it though.
I've always liked this mirror. It's got doors that open. I really like all the filigree carving around it to.
Who doesn't like Collie dogs?
I like anything and everything barley twist,.
And this, I want. I love the octagonal shape and filigree carved sides.
This piece is so cool...it's accessible from either side.
Big Horn Sheep Plant Stand and while I'm on the subject....
but more because I felt like being totally random....
Ashton, Shawn and me feeding Rocky Mountain big horn sheep in Colorado Springs, four years ago. We had a wonderful, and very rare, opportunity through the Colorado Division of Wildlife to take part in this daily event of feeding that only park rangers normally get to do. The Colorado Division of Wildlife
has ongoing research with the decline of sheep and how bighorns fall prey to pneumonia, parasitic lungworm and other diseases. The food we gave them was treated with medications to help fight and prevent disease. It was an amazing day!
At length, however, there was no room in the galleries for another table; no room on the tables for another cabinet; no room in the cabinet for another rose-bowl; no room in the bowl for another handful of potpourri; there was no room for anything anywhere; in short the house was furnished. ~Virginia Woolf
