This beautiful chest of drawers was manufactured mid-century by Young's Furniture in West Lynn, Massachusetts. Phil and I love the unique style of this piece. It is one of a kind. The new finish is multiple coats of white and graphite Benjamin Moore Advance premium semi-gloss paint over primer. The raised wooden drawer pulls and tapered legs have also been refinished. The top two drawers used to have vertical sculpted details, but we removed those pieces to simplify the piece (or reduce some confusion) and to better showcase the horizontal details on the lower half. This piece measures: 39"W x 18"D x 49 1/2"H. It is on display in our showroom at the beautifully renovated Barn at Todd Farm in Rowley, MA (275 Main St./Rt 1A). The Barn at Todd Farm is a multi-dealer antique, vintage, and handmade craft shop. It is open to the public Wednesday thru Saturday 10:30AM - 5PM, and Sunday 9AM - 4PM.

Our friends Jess and Andy at Modern Hub just finished professionally restoring and reupholstering this gorgeous daybed sofa. We love the simplicity, the maturity, and the versatility of this piece. This sofa was manufactured mid-century in the style of George Nelson or Peter Hvidt. The wooden frame, which we suspect may be teak, is in excellent condition. The foam in the cushions and the gray tweed linen fabric are both brand new. The top of the built-in side table has a beautiful wood grain, and the arm of the sofa features a nice woven panel. This piece measures: 106"W x 32"D x 27"H, with a seat height of 17". The side table measures: 30"W x 32"D x 12"H. If you'd like to see this piece in person, Jess and Andy can be reached directly at email@example.com. They are based in Acton, MA. Happy Holidays!

Lauren painted this identical pair of paintings in the Fall of 2015. They feature a simple, vertical gold and gray stripe pattern on a white background. The gold stripes are metallic. Each deep-edge, stretched cotton canvas measures: 20"W x 2"D x 10"H.
Phil and I gave this beautifully crafted, vintage single spool bed frame a fresh look with multiple coats of a golden yellow semi-gloss paint over primer. The bed frame includes a headboard, a foot board, and pair of wooden side rails. The headboard measures: 40"W x 36"H. This bed frame is on display in our showroom at The Barn at Todd Farm in Rowley, MA (275 Main St./Rt 1A). The Barn at Todd Farm is open to the public Wednesday thru Saturday 10:30AM - 5PM, and Sunday 9AM - 4PM.
This vintage desk has some very unique design elements. It was manufactured mid-century by Drexel. In modernizing it, we chose to keep the sculpted front legs wood. This contrasting finish creates a beautiful frame for the painted body. The body is painted with multiple coats of a premium semi-gloss paint over primer. The painted gray and white stripe on the top surface nicely balances the funkiness of the flanking wooden legs. The polished chrome drawer knobs (a Rejuvenation favorite of ours) are new. All sides of this piece are finished, so it looks great from any angle. This desk measures: 44"W x 21"D x 30"H.
