Four Hands Furniture is a supplier for numerous retail stores across the country. We have a showroom here in Austin as well as a warehouse where they have sales a few times a year.
If you're not familiar, they carry things similar in style to Restoration Hardware but at a scale more suitable for most homes.
They're having a warehouse sale that started today so I went to check out what they have. It was a bit like Black Friday. A whole lot of ladies speed walking to stake claim on that coffee table across the room. Lord help you if someone had a stroller!
Here are some things that caught my eye.
I like the camelback shape of these linen wing chairs. And there was a surprise.....
A tiny drawer! For the remote..... or your pistol. $1220.
This chair was cute with the nailhead detail. I think it was around $250.
Barrel back leather chairs were surprisingly comfortable for their small size. 28"w x 32"d. $625 each.
These square club chairs were extremely comfy! $695 each.
These were cuter in person. They look a little "waiting roomish" here. $595.
Cute grey linen chair with nailhead detailing. $599.
These didn't last long! $660 each.
Loved these Rattan chairs. $130 each.
Adjustable leather stools, $275 each.
Kitchen Island with bluestone top, $675.
I looooooved this Bluestone Dining Table! $1,120.
Another Bluestone table.
Concrete and metal console table. $560
Wood X base coffee table, $595
48" coffee table, $299
Many cute side tables.
This table was fab. 11 1/2 feet long for $730.
This table was yuck but interesting, $995
Lots of lighting.
A big ball??? $$249
A myriad of overdyed rugs. 8x10's were around $1300.
I loved this navy and gold color combo.
Black and brass bookcase.
Metal cabinet, $549. Would be pretty in a bathroom with all white towels.
Overall, lots of pretty, well made pieces with a healthy dose of trendy, yuck-o things. If you're in the Austin area, it's worth a look!
Beth and Chris Collier bought a boarded up, historic building once a hospital and later, a nursing home. Both have ties to this building in Washington, North Carolina once known as the Tayloe Hospital. Chris's grandfather and great-grandfather were doctors there and Beth's grandmother lived there when it was a nursing home.
Their initial tour of the boarded up building included a discovery of hundreds of dead pigeons in the attic!
While most people wouldn't even consider an undertaking of this magnitude, Chris and Beth, an interior designer, painstakingly renovated this beautiful Georgian building for their family. It also serves as their studio for their furniture line, vanCollier. Take a look!
Their front door was once the ambulance entrance.
Beth chose to paint their foyer red as a nod to Albert Hadley's famous New York City apartment.
I love a white kitchen. But for years, there has been a formula. White cabinetry + Calcutta + Subway + Stainless = Pretty Kitchen.
I'm really enjoying the shift in using other materials and colors.
All of these kitchens have used matte black range hoods and they are awesome. The hood is the "fireplace" of the kitchen and is a major focal point.
I'm loving these kitchens! (I know, a lot of them are still white...baby steps folks!)
