Client Spotlight: Antique Hunting Thrones & Brittany Style Furniture

Client Spotlight: Antique Hunting Thrones & Brittany Style Furniture

Posted by Aimee Talbot on 17th Jun 2013

Our very first advertisement for the opening of EuroLuxAntiques.com 2004We will always have a soft spot in our hearts for Gene and Lyn, as we met Gene on the very first day that we opened our doors back in 2004. Our first advertisement that we ran in our local Lake Murray Magazine caught Gene’s attention – here it is with the tag line Your New Connection to the Olde World! When I dug this ad up from our archives, I realized that the pair of antique Hunting Thrones that Gene and Lyn later purchased were featured in that debut ad!

Since then, we’ve changed our logo, our name (from EuroLux Imports to EuroLux Antiques),and even our location (from outside Newberry to Downtown Newberry on Main Street). But we still specialize in beautiful, hand-selected European antique furniture.

Antique Hunting Thrones in the sun porchLyn was busy on our opening day, but Gene brought her back soon afterwards as he knew she would enjoy browsing in our gallery. It was filled to the brim with the spoils of our very first imported container. Those fantastic antique Hunting Thrones would soon find a new home on Gene and Lyn’s sun porch overlooking the lake, followed soon afterwards by an elegantly carved antique Brittany Bench. You can see the antique Hunting Thrones with their marvelous barley twists and carvings here on their sun porch, along with the Brittany Bench displaying that lovely vase of flowers.

Antique French Brittany Bench. EuroLuxAntiques.comHere’s a close-up of the Brittany Bench, which is very typical of our Brittany style furniture. It features ship wheel carvings to honor the maritime history of the Brittany region, and carvings of French country folk. I still remember that Gene and Lyn opened a bottle of delicious wine when we delivered the thrones, and insisted that we have a few glasses to help them celebrate their “new” acquisitions! That afternoon we discovered that we had quite a bit in common with Gene and Lyn. They had started their marriage as newlyweds in Europe, just as we had. They told us stories of Gene’s teaching stint in Scotland, and we made them laugh with stories of our adventures living in Germany. We laughed and talked for hours and it turned into the beginning of a wonderful friendship!

Antique French Hunting Buffet displaying our client's collection of antique pewter. EuroLuxAntiques.comOver the years, Gene and Lyn have continued to find “new” antique pieces at EuroLux Antiques for their handsome home, often as a way to celebrate a birthday or an anniversary. A large and heavily-carved antique Hunting Buffet holds Lyn’s collection of antique and vintage pewter in the great room. The pewter looks superb against the antique wood of the carved buffet, so beautifully mellowed with age.

Antique French Hunting Chairs in our client's great room with a Hunting Buffet. EuroLuxAntiques.comGene and Lyn’s great room is an open concept area connecting the kitchen with a dining area and living room. A set of antique French Hunting chairs was added too, as you can see in the great room around the marble table.

Antique Brittany bedroom suite in our client's home. EuroLuxAntiques.comLyn fell in love with a very high-quality antique Brittany bedroom suite, including a 3-door armoire, bed, and nightstand. I love the red floral bedspread with the dark chestnut wood – it just adds to the French provincial feel of their lovely bedroom.  If you admire this look as much as I do, we have an awesome Brittany Bed and 3-Door Armoire that just came into the gallery, and some wonderful Brittany chairs too.

Gene and Lyn are both retired and keep very busy schedules, but we’re always happy to see them when the wind blows them through our doors here in Newberry!
