Most of you know that I wear many hats. One of the things that keeps me busy is running an antiques booth. I love this facet of my job because it allows me to be creative on MY terms. Since I love so many different styles and color combinations, this gives me an outlet to explore things that I don't necessarily have at home, or have a client requesting.
I have had the booth at the Queen of Hearts in Alpharetta for six years, and have yet to pin down a style...it's ever-changing! I buy what I love, and then figure out how it will fit into the scheme of things later. The process is always organic, and often therapeutic. Here is a little taste of what is currently for sale at Lisa Gabrielson Design...
The LONG, COLD winter must have influenced this explosion of color...
60" round pine table with carved base (1,500.00). These call for linen slip covered chairs. Elegant, yet rustic, with just the right touch of drama and understated class.
I love stacked trunks! Think coffee table, or bedside table. These are both antique...probably tool boxes. The bottom one has a cool crusty zinc top. Both are well under 100.00.
I am always on the hunt for one-of-a-kind smalls. The coal bucket with original paint on the left has such charm. The American Family Scale on the right would be fab in a modern white kitchen, loaded with fruits and veggies.
As an art history major, I adore vintage original art. Many designers consider my booth their go-to source for affordable, off beat paintings and prints. Don't be afraid of a salon style display for your art!
This 1930's still life has such pretty pinks...
I am aslo a sucker for great lighting.... It will always be one-of-a-kind and usually funky.
The console was made from reclaimed PA siding in the perfect original shade of blue.
The marble top was covered in gold paint. It was stripped to reveal a beautiful honed surface. I love how the patina still shows through on the edges.
Please let me know if you would like more info on anything you have seen here.
And enjoy the Spring...finally, folks!
