|Exterior of Contemporary House in North Atlanta.|
The house had some very vintage pieces and decor fully intact - like nothing had changed since it was built.
|These bright yellow cabinets were in pristine condition - just needed a stylish couple mixing a martini and putting out the cheese and crackers.|
|Shag carpet ... and it's popular again.|
A lot of rich history here:
The sellers wanted $795 for the pair but that is way beyond my cost point so I bid $200 for the two. On Saturday, I got a call indicating they were mine and I had to beg my sweet husband to return with our van to load the two - a tricky proposition I will not go into here.
The story of Tomlinson / Erwin - Lambeth began over one hundred years ago with two different companies only eight miles apart. Both companies were family owned and operated and began within months of each other. The Tomlinson family started the Tomlinson Chair Company in High Point, North Carolina in 1901.Also in 1901, the Lambeth family started The Standard Chair Company in Thomasville, North Carolina. In 1947, a new plant was built to create furniture specifically for the design trade.
Initially, I planned to redo the woodwork but it is in very nice condition so I choose to keep the original. I have two fabrics I plan to use - one is a clean neutral and the other a woven fabric which includes a hint of the wood color. They were dropped off this morning and I cannot wait to see how these turn out!
Another great day of estate saling!
