Awwwk! You sold the bar already! I really wanted to glom that! Probably couldn’t have afforded it tho. What a great set. Heck, I’d love to have glommed ALL the stuff you’ve sold! GREAT finds, GREAT restorations Hepcat!
Thanks Vic. I appreciate all your comments today.
Just found your site. Awesome stuff!
Great! I’m glad you are enjoying the site.
i have a lion painting, im guessing circa 1960′s/early 70′s – the signature looks to be “Duprie”? Any info popular artists that painted Wild Animals? I’ve seen alot of these growing up as a kid, and saw a very similar style painting at a friend’s house, but of a Tiger.
Unfortunately, I don’t have much info except he was a landscape and animal painter. If you can send me a copy of the picture I will see if I can find anything new out.
We enjoyed your visit to the Skyway Antique Mall in Paradise today! Thanks for stopping in. Enjoy your treasures! -Kim
Thanks, we found some great things at your store….we will be back!
I love mid-century design. I’ve tried to incorporate it into my mid-century (kinda) house. I’m looking for some fabric to go in my boys’ room. (blues, browns, circles?open to suggestion) Any suggestions?
I love mid century design. Fabrics are always hard to decide on and sometimes more difficult to find. There are a lot of things to consider when thinking of decorating a child’s room such as age, furniture style and also how you plan to incorporate the fabric (upholstered chair, pillows drapes…). Also, something to consider is if you can not find a fabric with the color combination you are looking for then try to use accessories that bring those colors in. I don’t know if I could recommend a certain fabric pattern because there are so many variations of blues and browns to choose from, but I can try. Also, if you are unsure what accessories to use to incorporate your color choices refer to design magazines or search the internet for examples. I hope this helped.
Here are some examples of mid century modern fabrics:
Shane- I have the same set of 4 burke chairs shown above, and wanted to know what you can do for mine (bad shape). I think you actually saw then @ B&T Upholstery about a month back. Give me a holler…Thanks!
Hi Lauren-Thanks for your note. I just sent an email to you. I took a quick look at them but not a good enough look to make an accurate estimate (cost & time) for restoration. Can you send me some photos of their condition and let me know of any cracks or sun rot?
I saw the photos above. Are you just showcasing what you have or are you selling them? Lenore
If they are in our Archive section they have already sold.
I have a painting I inherited with a carlo hollywood sticker on the back. It looks to be a dark cityscape/reflection painting and the signature is “sorri” the date written in pencil on the back of the paper is 1969 – any info on the artist or name of the painting you can tell me?
Unfortunately I do not specialize in Carlo oils, just water colors. If you refer to my Carlo of Hollywood section that is all we know, or think we know of Carlo.
Omg! I love Carlos of Hollywood. I have an enormous Hawaiian watercolor, I’m dying to know its worth!
