It is always exciting when I can match someone up with one of my vintage finds – whether it is a piece of furniture or a small decor piece.  I love that these pieces find new life, and that I get to be a part of that.  It is rare, though, that I am able to see these pieces in their new homes.  Back in August I shared photos of  two tables in their new spaces.  And now, today I can share a few more photos!

Heather is a local customer who purchased a gold-tone glass étagere and the Ello mirrored server.  Here are their “before” pics:

Both pieces have a really unique oval shape – and the gold & glass is so glam, so Hollywood Regency.  They are really fabulous pieces.

But they are even more fabulous in Heather’s space.

They are complemented by the dark walls and high ceilings.  You can catch glimpses of Heather’s mid-century and eclectic style.  The space is fun and interesting.  I think she did a great job choosing these two pieces to add to her space.  And I just love how she’s using the Ello server as a TV console!

For me, this is a huge part of what it’s all about.  Taking these little pieces from history, and helping them become part of a new story- making them accessible and obtainable to anyone with a vision.

Thanks for sharing your photos today, Heather!

I absolutely LOVE connecting a person with a new piece that they love.  Just today the lucite bar cart got a new home, and I think the buyers were thrilled with their purchase.  Yay!  And Saturday a table that I had nicknamed “The Beast” found its new home with Luci.  The table was so large and heavy that I questioned if I would ever find the right home for it.  The table is a vintage Henredon oak mirror-top dining table, with two additional leaves.  It is such a spectacular table, but also very large.  My home certainly could not showcase it properly.  Thankfully Luci has incredible taste and vision, and brought “The Beast” to her home, where it looks amazing!

Kerry at Design du Monde gave this beautiful faux bamboo table a new home.  It fits right in, and looks like it has always been there!  Perfect!

For me, seeing these pieces in their new homes is part of why I do this.  In a way, I’ve had a hand in giving these pieces a second life (or sometimes third or fourth).  Luci’s dining table can once again be the center of entertaining and great meals & conversation.  Kerry’s coffee table can be a focal point in a room once more.  These are pieces with years behind them, and many more in front of them.

If you’ve purchased something from Pursuing Vintage and would like to share a photo of the piece in its new home, I’d be so grateful!  Just email the photo to kristen@pursuingvintage.com and let me know if its okay to use it on the site.
