I love it when I score a WHOLE SET of amazing chairs!  Sure, one great chair is fun, a pair is terrific, but a set of six is worth doing a dance!  (I’ll spare you.)

Adaptation of Prague Chairs

These chairs are like chameleons!  They can blend in and adapt with many decor styles.


Modern & Clean

These chairs are always stunning with a Saarinen tulip table (on my 2015 Wish List!)

This Sputnik-type chandelier and open-base table also complement the chairs.

Vintage & Rustic

The look and feel of the chairs completely changes when paired with this rustic farm table.

They even look great painted – love the red on these.

How do you prefer your Thonet chairs?  With a more modern feel, or vintage & rustic?

If you have a spot for them – they are available in The Pursuing Vintage Shop!



Have you seen my parrots?


I have to give credit to my friend, Rachael, who corrected me – evidently they are cockatoos!  Either way – aren’t they beautiful?!

I think they would be perfect in this 1960’s-inspired Palm Beach dining room designed by Meg Braff.  Yes, Meg Braff, this is me telling you that your stunning room is missing these amazing birds!

And here’s a similar bird on this fabulous bar cart:

Get the look!  My parrots cockatoos are available in The Pursuing Vintage Shop.


Earlier in the week I shared my Favorite Finds of 2014.  Now it’s time for some wishin’ and hopin’.

Pursuing Vintage 2015 Wish List

When I go out pursuing vintage, I look for pieces that speak to me, that would work in today’s decor, and add interest to a space.  I don’t carry a shopping list.  But, in the back of my mind, there are always a few things I’m keeping an eye out for.  There are pieces for my own home that I’d like – as well as pieces that would be fun to offer through the Pursuing Vintage Shop.

In my own home, I’m on the look-out for a vintage classroom map.  I’d like the roll-down type, and preferably one that features either the entire US, Virginia, or Illinois (where we have family).

I’d also like a dining room table.  I found terrific faux bamboo dining chairs in 2014, and now I need a great table to showcase them.  I prefer a pedestal table – and oval would be best in my space.  Other than that criteria, I don’t really know what I’m looking for.  I think I’ll know it when I see it.  These tables are amazing, and I’d bring either of these home in a heartbeat.

I also want a pair of ram or ibex bookends.

For my bedroom, I’m looking for a unique, antique side table or small writing table.  Something a little rustic or primitive.  This one is amazing.

I’d also love to continue to stock the Pursuing Vintage Shop with amazing finds, and these would be so fun to find:
