Our last container from France brought in an abundance of antiques from all walks of life.  From the rustic to the refined, Vicky chose an eclectic blend of "something for everyone." FRENCH PRIMITIVES is our featured post this week. space space It doesn't get more primitive than this.  An authentic, LARGE feed trough.  All hand hewn wood and very, very unique, this trough is actually multi-functional.  One customer used it as a sideboard.  During the holidays she filled the trough with greenery and pinecones and topped it with a piece of glass.  You could line it with zinc, fill it with ice and use as a beverage station.  Great on the porch or lanai.  Great as a planter.  In short, it's just pretty great! space space How about some wagon wheels.  As you can see we have all shapes and sizes.  Some are wood, some are iron.  Some are painted, some are natural.  We have them suspended in our window and nestled in our trough.  Wonderful for architectural interest on walls, windows, or even turned into small tables. space space Speaking of tables, this beauty combines casual with elegant.  The table and matching chairs have a simple, solid design accented with a dry-brush paint application on table legs and chair frame.  Belgian linen in a deep, rich grey was used to cover the back and seat.  A natural wood top creates a nice contrast and completes the look. space space Another example of casual elegance.  Beautiful antique French chairs are covered in a muted taupe linen.  We sanded the arms and legs just enough to give it that "exposed wood" look.  The animal hide stool adds some interest and fun and the antique barrel "vase" continues the theme of rustically refined. space space More animal print?  Absolutely.  This antique arm chair combines primitive with POW!  Vicky selected a gorgeous animal print to cover the arms and seat.  The original leather back has aged to a soft, worn patina.  Incredibly compatible with many decors, this one needs to be seen in person to fully appreciate. space space A study in simple beauty.  This rustic workbench is a rare find.  Handmade with original vises, peg holes and tool tray, these benches are now being used as buffets, media centers, bars and kitchen islands.  We've used ours as a display piece and topped it with an exquisite antique French cross, large handmade twig basket and vintage wood bottle carrier.  If you're looking for primitive, it doesn't get any more authentic than this. As always, this is just a small sample of the vast selection we have in our shop and warehouse.  You can view more items on our PURCHASE NOW page or simply stop by and browse through our store.  We'd be happy to help you make your house your home.
