Hudson, Hudson, Hudson

Ahhh…Hudson. We spent today in our shop on Warren Street. It was hot and steamy, but that didn’t deter the shoppers. And it didn’t deter me either – I took the opportunity (between customers) to clean, dust and re-arrange. I added some new smalls to the shop’s offerings, sold off some old ones for cheap, and generally tried to freshen the joint up a bit.
And I took some pictures!
This is Sandy. She’s new in town, and would love to get to know you. She brought a friend along, but I didn’t catch her name.
I’m tickled with the dressforms, dated 1966 and 1968. They play nicely with the lucite chairs and industrial decor.
What’s called for in the middle of all the steel, iron and industrial wood? Why, a big-ass gold ceramic mid-century lamp, that’s what.
Here’s some sunny retro pop for your breakfast nook.
And more dining options – this one with a mid-century pedigree. The dropleaf table was designed by Russel Wright and made by Conant Ball.
I really love these rock maple chairs, unmarked but probably by Sykes. And we just found the sexy little brass floor lamp last weekend.
This fabulous caned sofa needs a person with vision. The caning is rough on the seat, but it could be re-done or worked around with wood and cushions. What lines, though! What drama! It makes me think of Liz Taylor as Cleopatra.
And for your friend, or husband, or mom who came with you to Hudson but who isn’t all that into antiques – we always keep an interesting selection of books on art, design, architecture and travel in stock.
Speaking of art, we brought in this terrific oil on paper of Don Quixote by Pierre Mas.
Checkmate? Very fun over-sized handmade wooden chess set, also found last weekend.
Well, that’s all. Sandy thinks it would be groovy if you stopped in to see her. (She is convinced it’s still 1968, so don’t tell her no one says “groovy” anymore. )
