This handsome lounge chair and matching ottoman were professionally restored and reupholstered in 2015 by Modern Hub. They were manufactured mid-century, following the introduction of Herman Miller's iconic Eames 670 lounge chair. Their molded bentwood frames and chrome bases are in excellent condition. The tufted fabric is a gray tweed wool. The chair measures: 26"W x 30"D x 39"H. The ottoman measures: 21 1/2"W x 16"D x 17"H.
This beautiful, double-sided pedestal desk was manufactured mid-century by the Sligh-Lowry Furniture Co. We chose to refinish this piece with Benjamin Moore's Aura Grand Entrance paint in high gloss. Grand Entrance was inspired by fine European door and trim enamel. It is an interior/exterior paint that boasts a rich, lustrous finish, and outstanding durability. All 9 drawers on this desk slide well. They are solidly constructed with dovetail joints. We lined the drawers with a wall covering featuring a geometric lace print. The metal drawer pulls and capped feet have a nice natural patina. The built-in bookshelf on the back of the desk is a great spot for additional storage. The desk measures: 50"W x 27"D x 30"H.

Phil and I love the simplicity of this vintage hutch. It was manufactured mid-century by Stanley Furniture. The wood was in beautiful condition when we picked this piece up, so we only refinished the surfaces that needed some TLC. The wood has been cleaned and polished. Being selective about where we placed paint led to a very unique design. We think the different finishes and colors compliment each other well. The removable white door on the hutch top slides all the way across. All 6 drawers on the bottom server slide well. The metal drawer knobs have a nice natural patina. Featured on the hutch shelves is a collection of ceramic pieces from various time periods that are also available for purchase in our showroom at The Barn at Todd Farm in Rowley, MA (275 Main St./Rt 1A). We can accommodate private showings if you are unable to make it to The Barn during their hours of operation. We also offer a delivery service. Fully assembled, this hutch measures: 52"W x 18"D x 74"H.

We love the sweeping bow in the design of this vintage chest of drawers. This chest was manufactured mid-century (circa 1940) by Hendredon Heritage. The new finish is Benjamin Moore Advance, a premium semi-gloss paint, over primer. The brass pulls are original. They have a nice natural patina. All eight drawers slide well. They are constructed with dovetail joints. The chest measures: 57"W x 21 1/2"D x 35"H. This piece could serve a number of different purposes. 35" is great working height. We think it'd be beautiful in a nursery as a changing table.

Phil and I adore this vintage chest of drawers. It has just the right balance of interesting architectural details and cleaner, simpler lines. We thought this piece would look great with two different finishes. The top row of drawers features the natural wood grain beautifully, and white semi-gloss finish on the lower drawers makes the sculpted pulls look fresh. We left the tapered legs wood to tie in the top row of drawers. All nine drawers slide well. They are solidly constructed with dovetail joints. The original brass drawer knobs have been lightly polished. This piece was manufactured mid-century. It measures: 60 1/4"W x 19"D x 31 3/4"H.

We salvaged this gorgeous chest of drawers from the attic of a 100 year old home in Jamaica Plain. It was manufactured circa 1919 by the Sligh Furniture Co. in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The new finish on this piece was inspired by a dresser that we refinished for a Blue Lamb client in January of 2015. We hand-painted the body with Benjamin Moore Advance paint over BIN primer. Then we stripped, stained, and polyed the top surface in an effort to feature the beautiful wood grain. Finally for a touch of glamor, we replaced the original wooden knobs with new round glass knobs that we purchased from Rejuvenation. All four drawers slide well. They are solidly constructed with dovetail joints. The chest rests on metal casters. The mirror is in excellent condition. Fully assembled, this piece measures: 44"W x 23"D x 71" H. Without the mirror, the dresser measures 37"H.

This vintage chest of drawers was manufactured mid-century by Broyhill. We love its simple architectural details and solid build. We refinished this piece with Benjamin Moore Advance, a premium semi-gloss paint, over primer. The color is charcoal gray with blue green undertones. In some lighting, it could be interpreted as a muted navy. All of the drawers slide well and are constructed with dovetail joints. The original brass drawer pulls have a nice natural patina. This dresser measures: 38"W x 18"D x 44"H.
