Best of September 2013: Antique Dining Rooms & Elvis Fest

Best of September 2013: Antique Dining Rooms & Elvis Fest

Posted by Aimee Talbot on 27th Sep 2013

We covered an eclectic mix of subjects in our September blog posts, including spotlights on antique dining room furniture in two clients’ homes, a tutorial on how to mend broken ceramics, and a fun celebration of Elvis Presley. I guess that is fitting for the harvest season, as we gather in all the fruits and veggies and enjoy an abundant and diverse feast!

We certainly took inspiration from the wide range of creative options in our item on decorative stair ideas. Check out the photos in the post and tell us what you think! Let’s revisit some of our other most popular September posts.

Antique dining room furniture in our client's homeIt’s always great to see photos of our customers’ homes, featuring antique furniture and other home decor accents they’ve bought from us. Our client spotlights are a great source of home design ideas and beautiful ways to blend antiques into decor. This month we got a glimpse of Susan’s gorgeous red dining room, featuring 12 Renaissance dining room chairs she found in our gallery. Susan reupholstered some of the chairs and she also bought a vintage chandelier to hang over the dining room table. The red ceramic Hubert Bequet chandelier is the perfect finishing touch and it proves that a relatively simple decor accent can really pull the whole look of the room together!

Antique dining room furniture in our client's Victorian houseContinuing the antique dining rooms theme, we looked at the Victorian dining room of our client Sal S. in New York. Sal is a busy entrepreneur and he is restoring a Victorian house with the help of an interior designer. The designer suggested Sal check out our online antiques store. Sal went one better, and drove all the way to South Carolina to visit our gallery in person. Thank goodness the shopping trip proved successful! Sal added an antique French Renaissance Buffet, ten upholstered Hunting chairs, and a Renaissance style server or sideboard to his Victorian home.
ceramic-restoration-tipsFrom a Victorian restoration to ceramic restoration… In our blog post on How to Fix a Broken Ceramic, Kathy gave a video tutorial, using a broken ceramic figurine as an example. The figurine, a.k.a. Prudence, belongs to a friend of ours and poor Prudence had a broken arm. Kathy did her magic and repaired Prudence, sharing her ceramic-fixing tips in a short video as she worked. Those tips are also written up in the post if you prefer to read them.


Ready for the South Carolina Elvis FestivalWe enjoyed a celebration of Elvis Presley this month, as Greg and I recently visited Tupelo, MS, for a furniture show and stopped in to see Elvis Presley’s birthplace. You can see our photos of Elvis’ childhood home in the post. Whilst there, I bought these awesome Elvis jumpsuit pajamas in the gift shop. So when the South Carolina Elvis Festival came to our town of Newberry a few weeks later, I already had the perfect outfit to celebrate Elvis The King!
