Carter for President



Ok, you've seen a few of my favorite haunts already. Parrin and Co., Christopher Filley, Scott and Warren, Retro Inferno. The first two are in our antiques district and the later are in the Crossroads. There's another little spot I know, a diamond in the rough. The store's the diamond, and while the neighborhood isn't exactly rough, it's not exactly charming either.






But come on in, the stuff is fine.








These Johnson Hadley Johnson chairs live at Nick Carter's at 3410 Main Street. Right across from Costco. (There are 4; 1200 each pair.)






It's a crazy little mix of just about everything good. A little mid century over here.







Little chinoiserie over there. (This screen reminds me of Style Court and her headboard obsession.)





Entry hall? Powder room? Vanity?





Nick Carter also carries a lovely selection of Arts and Crafts pieces.



This very well could be the fixture from the Blandings's entry hall of our first house. It was, unfortunately, a split level with several retro light fixtures. I sold them immediately, for almost nothing, but it was before it was all the rage.







This could bring a smile to your face as you're Wisking away.





The color on this set was lovely and unique. It would be great to mix in with black pieces as well.



Vote for Nick. He knows things.

Patricia, you should offer shopping tours to Kansas visitors. That is a fabulous screen! Thanks for the mention.

Mrs. Blandings said...

Courtney - I'd be happy if the locals just got around a little bit!

Great post and too bad you sold your light fixtures. I guess it all comes back around!

Mrs. Blandings- That oak round table is IDENTICAL to our dining table. We use our dining room as library too, so it doubles as a library table. First time I've seen one exactly like ours. The feet are very different than most. Ours has two giant extensions. Very surprised to see that!

Halcyon - reconfirming my initial impression that your taste is fabulous.
