We got a call on Monday night, the client needed to have an estate sale that very weekend and we made it happen! Within two days we had the sale set up and by the following Sunday practically everything was sold. This was a great sale, full of a lot of fun items, and with a lot of fun people stopping by. We had a blast!!
We were so lucky to work on this sale. Our client is an avid collector of fine art and had amassed a collection consisting of over 100 pieces, mostly sculptures acquired over many years of travel. These were beautiful pieces that some very lucky people got to take home. One of our favorite sales yet!
The design concept for a Pantone Rubik’s Cube called the Rubitone went viral in the blogging community back in 2008 for its melding of vibrant and fun Pantone products with a toy almost every adult can get behind. Industrial Designer Ignacio Pilotto conceptualized this piece and the other clever designs pictured here, some of these products are available for purchase, while others like the Rubitone we’ll just have to cross our fingers are wait for.

Reupholstering a vintage chair is a great way to take the sometimes drab furniture you can find for a bargain at your local estate sale and turn it into that one-of-a-kind attention grabbing piece. I love the pop of color used to reupholster this french style accent chair found by NYC blog CherryPatter NYC at Brooklyn store Fabrica. Learn more about Fabrica here.
