I once inherited a set of chairs that a dear friend found on the street in Brooklyn, but then when she picked up and left New York for Texas, I was left with her chairs. Believe me, I was really sad to see her go, and I'm reminded of her every time I pull up one of my heavy, wrought iron garden chairs up to the rickety table in my dining room.
Tabletop guru Bill from Affordable Accoutrements told me the story of how he received this gorgeous white sofa, a side table and a wing chair from a friend's mother who entered assisted living. I can imagine that he accepted the gifts with a tinge of nostalgia, knowing how much the woman must have adored the lovely furniture that she was now forced to part with.
It's obvious to me how Bill has arranged his newfound pieces in a place of distinction. Why, just look at this fabulous, fantasy-filled table setting that he has set in their honor! It's comforting to know that one woman's adored treasures have now found another welcoming home.
