In other words; your birth surname determines your career. My birth name? Debra Byers, shopping is my passion and my business. I can walk and shop at markets for a week on end, never tiring and pinching myself that it is a piece of my business. Having been busy this month satisfying the aforementioned, here is a look at some of my European finds.
First up, just a few of the antiques found while in the UK last October
The quality of these images should note an apology, professional-like photography obviously
Adore the lines of this 1930's era table, perfect as a console or sofa table. An added benefit is the center opening/pop-up leaf to easily turn this into a dining table. The French seem to have perfected this feature that I have noted from coffee tables to dining tables.
Cabinet from Provence with the original turquoise interior, perfectly aged.
The series of hearts above are French pastry tins nicely rusted and ideally suited to assembling them into any configuration
In and sold immediately, hand carved panels
Loved this example of bleached wood. A Louis XIV styled table with numerous flourishes and carvings. Perfectly staged with the contemporary lucite chair
The master behind this look is friend, Madame Murielle, who scours her homeland.
Original paint, demi-lunes from Sweden. OK, this is not new to the shop......but needs a good home. Interested, contact me, we will make it happen
