Atlanta finds

Hey, it’s Doug…Anna Kay and I went to Atlanta this week to visit one of our favorite places to shop, Scott’s Antique Market.  We found some great new items for our Rosemary Beach shop while we were there and we wanted you to be the first to see what we discovered!

We’re always on the lookout for pieces that will accommodate televisions and all their related gear in an attractive manner so we were excited to find this console.  Crafted out of iron with a dark-stained wood top, it would work well with a television sitting directly on top or below one hung on a wall.  The vintage industrial style drawers are great for stashing dvd’s.

We’ve been selling so much upholstery lately!  We love having a few antique chairs in the shop in addition to the new upholstery that we carry.  This beautiful pair of antique fauteuils feature wonderfully carved walnut frames.  The seat cushions have been rebuilt and the chairs have already been recovered in upholstery-weight burlap.  We think they’re great as-is, but they certainly could be recovered or slipcovered too. 

Speaking of antique chairs, check out this beautiful piece we purchased for a client.  We’re planning on recovering it in a grey linen.  We’ll be sure to share pictures of the finished product with you when it’s ready.

We always see items at Scott’s that we love, but don’t quite have the need for at  the moment.  This amazing pair of metal cabinets is from an old drug store and some of the drawers still features 1960’s typewritten labels!  Wouldn’t they be great catch-all cabinets in an office or craft space?  This particular seller always has cool vintage industrial pieces and though we didn’t get these cabinets, we did pick up a 1930’s era metal table that’s been stripped down to its bare silvery natural finish.  We’ll probably place it in our room at this year’s Designer Showhouse for the Arts so watch for photos of that coming soon too.

While were in town we were sure to hit up one of our favorite fabric stores, Lewis & Sharon.

There are so many great things there, but we were especially taken with this nautical-themed fabric.  Although we’re based at the beach and have a shop there, we don’t very often design your typical “beachy” interiors, which is why we thought this fabric was so great.  It comes in a fun yellow-green color too.  We’ll definitely be finding a place to use this soon!

Chain-link and faux wood planking aren’t typically things we’d go for, but how cool are these printed linen fabrics?  Both come in several colors but we think the charcoal on flax colorway is especially cool.

If you’re interested in any of our Atlanta finds, let us know and we’ll get you pricing and dimensions.  Have a great weekend!

  1. Loved the industrial console table. Just an awesome piece. Are heavy industrial pieces the in for this year? Esp, mixed with a few more refined pieces. Hope so!
