Our Favorite Finds from the Las Vegas Market, January 2014


This darling farm style table with casters is stunning.


Great alternative to a standard built-in island.  Stunning! From Four Hands

Wonderful lighting from Robert Abbey

Van Thiel collection, available from Four Hands.  This blue and white pottery is GORGEOUS!  I believe it is from Holland.

Seriously!  What a great idea, upholstering the seat.  I have had one of these little stools for year.  Much more comfy this way.

Additional Van Thiel pieces from Four Hands.  We just ordered this darling folding bench for a client.   It is actually very comfortable.  What a statement piece, too.
Here is an up close picture of this terrific bench.  It will be going into our client's entry.  A piece of art!!

I have always loved large bottles and this display is so pretty.

In love!!!!  These fabulous wall sconces from Egypt from Blue Ocean Traders make me weak.  I think we are getting the large ones.  I ordered both sizes, however I think the small ones might not be available any longer.


Nice idea for wall shelves. 

We just ordered these cool baskets made from recycled tires. 

Probably my most favorite color pallet.  I LOVE yellow, so this combo paired with the blue and white chair in the picture below is AWESOME!!! 

Stunning light fixtures, too

This market was really about color, lots of it. 

Yep, love this too. 

Selfie!  Sorry, had to get one in.  LOL.  We both look very tired.  This was at the end of the show for us.

These chairs sit outside of the ARIA.  What fun!!

Things We Love in the Shop


We love Leah Anderson Art.  This is one of our many favorites.  This horse would add drama to any space it is in.  Very transitional piece, large and regal.  We could see this in a very modern style home, too.
 This little vintage rooster is so cute. 
Our very "Chippy" old Baker's/Hoosier cabinet is very charming. Would be a fun addition to a kitchen remodel or existing kitchen.

 Vintage/antique Turkish Bread bowl...We can see that being made into a very cool light fixture, however it is beautiful just as it is, too.

A Few Fun Ways to Display Collections

I recently acquired a vintage croquet set and thought this might be a fun way to display it. Still trying to figure out how the balls are hanging from the wall.  Perhaps, I need to mount them on a board.

 Rackets on the wall, I like the colorful texture this is bringing to this display.
Why hang an old mirror up by a nail? Adding old rope adds another layer to this display

Blue and White, oh My!

Blue and white indoor outdoor rug, Dash and Albert, lovely throws for the breezy summer nights.


 Blue Hydrangeas, with some white pottery
 Just changing a few items out, and adding a few blue and white pieces can update an area
Pretty pine cabinet, just sold, but wanted to share
