I know many of you enjoy decorating, redecorating and / or are members of the design trade. You can relate here as we’ve all sold furniture out of our homes to friends and clients. But being shop keepers, this kind of stuff happens pretty regularly for us. For example, we’ve had two dining tables and four sets of chairs in the last five years. Not because we're picky….just the nature of the biz.
Some comments I've received from household members:
~ What did you sell now?
~ But we have guests this weekend. What are we going to sit on? Me: let's take them out :)
~ Wait, you just had those chairs reupholstered!
Come with me down memory lane . . .

Sold the set of 6 Swedish Rococo style chairs.
Goodbye Rococo chairs. Hello Gustavian chairs!
Sold Gustavian chairs and English pedestal table. Ate in kitchen of former home on Ikea wicker chairs (comfy). The round table under the linen cloth is also from Ikea.
A different table along with 6 Swedish armchairs for the current house. Pardon the tattered upholstery. Above photo by Gordon Beall, courtesy of Washington Post.
Tattered armchairs replaced by set of 12 chairs (back to Rococo style).
Had a sofa in the the window but it didn't work. Brought in statue (a bit damaged and that's not mold...it's moss :) He's too heavy to move so he's staying for a while.
Friend Lori needed painted chairs for her steel breakfast table. I don't need 12 chairs...here's 2 from our house. 10 left if anyone is interested---just kidding. I love our chairs and they are not for sale (at the moment).
