vintage

I am a classical and vintage aficianado. Antique hunting at flea markets is something I have been doing at flea markets and antique stalls since I was a little girl.   In this story, a vintage Stiffel lamp, c. 1950, sits next to a 1932 Maple serpentine settee that has been reupholstered in bottle green velvet. The Stiffel lamp sits on Chinese Rosewood nesting tables. The curves of the lamp are repeated in the serpentine curves of the settee. A modern note are the simple Hunter Douglas pleated shades, and reproduction fan. The entire vignette speaks of ease and elegance from another era, yet is timeless in its appeal.
