High Point Furniture Market - Fall 09

I got home at 2:45 am from a 4 day tour de force market sprint.... next time I'm getting new shoes and a bag of epson salt! Aye. Regardless, the market was quite good even though it was short on buyers.

These heads mounted on baby blue plaques caught my attention.

This room was devoted to orange. not pictured were vases filled with carrots. Very cool.

A yummy Swedish cabinet. Loved it.

A cool folding library ladder.

Anyone need a 9ft high cabinet?

I bought a basket full of the these 17th & 18th century reproduction candle sticks, finials, and art pieces.

This is an early 19th century painted Italian cabinet....for a mere $53,500.00

These were in the same category - not in this lifetime!

Spied this cool union jack sofa.

Was one step too late here. Sold! A southern plantation tray rack. This gets a swoon award for original coolness and I would have loved to seen it full back in the day.

A lovely table. Leaves push underneath...extends from 7 to 10 feet. Nice, rich finish. $2,370

A beautiful 19th century french replica wall plaque. I will have these available soon.. and the ones below.

A french Queen headboard. Comes in a King size too. Based on a 19th Century carved panel.
A milky yellow color. Fabulous.

A French wall board.... imagine this over a mantle! Stunning. Available soon ( and better pictures too!) $2400

A gorgeous Swedish sideboard with 2 marble top inlays on each side. $3425

Loved this for a ski / mountain get-away. The handles are over-the-top. Just perfect! $2585

Grape hods are officially in!

Loved these 19 century French replica planter boxes. Order a pair for the store.

These planter boxes were massive and had nice hardware. Pull the pegs and the front panel comes off for easy plant removal. French replica. Also coming soon.

New this market - silvered (almost mercury glass looking) lamp bases! Great profiles.

Loved this regency looking consul. Black with antiqued mirror top, lower back splash and drawer faces...mirror has gold leafed edging as does the body. Very, very nice. Once of my show favorites. Will be available in a few months.

Close-up. Will also be available in a side table size. Very classic.
