Antique Chandeliers, Moras, Holiday Hours

 Holidays are fast upon us and our brick and mortar shop in Reading Mass 
has been pretty slow.  So that gives us a chance to catch up on other stuff,
like custom work and painting Mora clocks and revamping the shop.
Today we will be getting in a collection of old chandeliers from a Boston home
in the Back Bay.  You might know I have a weakness for old light fixtures,
and really think they can transform a room! This is one of the lovely fixtures
that will soon be in our shop.  I am not sure we will offer these online as they are 
so delicate and shipping can be rough on anything breakable.
We have worked hard these past few months, opening and closing shops
and trying to get our Reading store and our online shop up and running
the way we want with slower sales predicted for the coming week
we will be closing the Reading store and taking a well deserved break. 
Closed December 22-January 2
Online open at
 Our Holiday Hour notice~
we have posted on facebook and twitter and instagram and now, the blog.
Hopefully no one makes the trek out to the shop next week, as we won't be here.  Hoping to spend some quality time together and doing what families do over the holidays. We have had great customers in our new location and know that they are busy putting the finishing touches on their plans as well.
 But we will back in January all fired up and ready to rock and roll! One idea we are hoping to develop is a Curated Vintage Collection.  That means being picky about the vintage and antiques we find that have the qualities we think embody the Maison Decor style.  Like these chandeliers that are simply gorgeous! Colin will be bringing them into the shop today and I can't wait to unpack them and check them out!! Not everyone is a vintage lover, but we think there are enough like minded folks out there who will appreciated us having a well curated vintage collection of home decor items.
Of course the coming year will include more blog posts about
 the how tos of decorative furniture finishes, 
like this example of using Foils for an easy gilded look.
Our Deluxe Mora Clock proved to be more popular than we imagined!
We set a record in the past four weeks and are proud to have gotten 
these wonderful reproduction clocks out to our
 shoppers by their Christmas deadlines.
Julie, this one is for you and you can expect it Christmas Eve!
(Note: Julie wanted her clock with a very light antique glaze, so this is a 
lighter finish than what we usually offer.)
So Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! 
Wishing you all a Happy New Year from 
me and the guys, Justin and Colin. 
(You think I might need to get a more recent pic of us three?!!)
