Chesterfield, A Love Affair

Recently, the Georgetown antiques shop, Miller and Arney, closed, and relocated here, to Naples.  As luck would have it, I popped in, and met Joe Miller, the owner.  He was most helpful, and very nice.  He even had some tables that had been made by Albert Hadley for a Washington client.  Antiques Center of Naples (239) 596-2636

Anyway, Mr. Miller had this gorgeous, circa 1900 English sofa, and it spoke to me.  I've only wanted one of these for the LAST THIRTY-EIGHT YEARS!!!  So, you can imagine how happy and pleased I was, when yesterday, my movers, MacDonald Moving and Storage, delivered it !

I also obtained a circa 1800 giltwood mirror, which may replace the Andy Warhol silkscreen- coming up in a future post.  I've always loved Edwardian tufted upholstery, and picture this sofa ending up in front of the big fireplace I've also always dreamed of.  One step at a time!  Enjoy!  DF *****
