35 Beautiful Vignettes

We spent the last few days satisfying the spring cleaning urge by rearranging the store. It is amazing how fresh a home or store can feel by something so simple.... just love it.

To find out more on the French and English Antiques in the below pictures - click here.

Our design design projects are all over New England and more. Click here and here for some portfolio examples from two of our other websites.

I found this 1860's mahogany Chest of Drawers in England. It is topped with two thin lamps, antique books, black forest match holder and tea caddies. It is flanked by two tufted Marlboro Chairs by Hickory Chair.

A Victorian table top nickel mirror sits on a Georgian side table. A pair of tobacco tins and asparagus plates finish it off. The Alpine walking sticks are a favorite.

Another nice English Chest of Drawers topped with a French Mirror. The Wucai platter is fronted by a pair of vintage Mastiff bookends.

Love these linen covered Lee boudoir chairs.

A Weston love seat by Hickory Chair and covered in a micro leopard print. Fronted by a tapered leg English table topped with a tea caddy, magnifying glass, saint carving, and glass vases with Perrin Mowen Beeswax candles.

Just love filling these old English tins with floral arrangements. This one has branches of custard apples, figs and palmetto berries.... visually heavy with texture. Always have a handful of green pots!

Lee industries washable slip covered yellow apartment sofa. A French grape trug filled with sunflowers sit beside it.

Nice table top texture and decor.... interesting mixture of shapes under some 200 year old Italian Candle Pedestals.

A mirror side table and a collection of smalls.

A pair of petite, but comfortable Lee chairs and an English corkscrew stool and a small French stool.

A French boudoir sofa, a hutch filled with blue and white and a pair of wooden trophy urns. 1920's...England.

A table top of tulips and smalls.

A Lee sofa and an antique Chinese baby bath filled with matches.

Marlboro chairs covered in Cowtan & Tout and a late Georgian / beginning Regency Hepplewhite table.

A great oil... sheep painting... never cleaned.

A Hickory Chair boudoir sofa that everyone loves ... and so do the Danish mice!

Aie, aie, aie - Sunflowers and summer!!!!!!! It's 80 today.... and I'm at work. Hmmmm? Ican foresee a sudden flu outbreak....cough, hack, ummm ....hookie.

A small oak secretary from England.

A lovely mahogany Chest of Drawers and a rare Louis XIV petite armoire.... Machrin style. Circa 1680-1710.

A great cabriole French table topped with some interesting finds.

The perfect Welsh Cupboard.

A Charles sofa by Hickory Chair and an Ottoman found in France.

Just decor and a Parisian Flea Market leather Rawlings chair by Hickory Chair....yummy.

A collection of Victorian paper mache plates and boxes.

A flip-top Victorian table.

A post box from a hotel in England, a tea caddy and a Georgian Apprentice Chest.

A cool Spool Chair by Hickory Chair.

Had to beautify the nook going into the fabric room.

The fabric room.

We are located 1 hour north of Boston.... and 4 hours from New York City ..... so all of you day trippers..... please stop in. We are in Downtown Portsmouth between the Sheraton Harborside Hotel and the Hilton Garden Inn and 300 feet from the river off Market Street. Take exit #7 off 95 before the bridge going into Maine.

While everything is just beautiful, I am afraid I have fallen head over heels for the Danish mice! So unexpected! Thank you for sharing!

So many lovely vignettes :-) It must be lots of fun putting them together :-) I really like the small round mirrored table and the zebra print pieces.
