Although EuroLuxAntiques.com is best-known for its beautiful antique furniture from France and other parts of Europe, did you know that Greg and I also personally select high-quality reproduction pieces for our gallery? We pick out our favorite lighting, furniture, and other home accents, and yes, sometimes even a fantastic reproduction barstool!
A barstool should always have a tale to tell, so we were very pleased to learn the story from our client Margaret behind this superbly crafted barstool. It has quite a history for a newly-made reproduction!
Margaret, a board member and resident of a high-rise building in New York City, has been searching for nearly two years for just the right barstool for their doorman to use in the lobby of this building. Apparently the discerning board members just couldn’t agree on the right stool until Margaret found our website. Then she discovered our large selection of high-quality reproduction barstools.
Margaret chose an armless swivel seat barstool in a waxed cherry finish with black leather upholstery and brass nailhead trim. With a bowtie backsplat and hand-rubbed distressing for an antique look, the stool has just the right timeless appeal to suit this classic lobby.
It has turned out to be a wonderful fit with the custom-designed desk of oak and marble with brushed brass, and it perfectly matches the lobby fixtures. After such a long wait, Margaret remained patient as we sorted out a shipping delay with the Greyhound courier service, but in the end, she was very happy.
She wrote, “I am delighted, and the member of the board who volunteered to help ratchet up the pressure and get this through, came sailing down to the lobby in his bare feet and hopped right on the stool, grinning from ear to ear. The barstool is really classy and is six steps up from all of the other stools we had considered over the years. Thank you, Aimee!”
Well, thank YOU Margaret! We’re delighted to know that the barstool, crafted by Woodbridge Furniture Company, is gracing the lobby of your lovely building in NYC. We hope your doorman enjoys it too – comfort is important in that job!
