chair vibes

Making the home (or apartment in my single years) has always been my muse; but designing it with antiques - that's what really makes my home. There's something about the real deal (not a target replica) and knowing each piece has a story....says the owner of a 1750 Victorian farmhouse.

Rental chairs have always been a part of the master plan; it's a given most party-throwers need chairs. There are so many dreamy table:chair combinations that I'd like to bring on all at once but alas, all good things come to those who wait.

When Kevin isn't working weekends (ha!) we're usually hitting our favorite antique nooks - Delphi Antiques (Schwenksville), Antiques at Silver Bell Barn (Downingtown), Smithfield Barn (Eagle), and our numero uno love: Resellers Consignment (Malvern). Even days after Oliver's arrival earthside, we were fulfilling our semi-addiction.

So this is not only the style that reflects holmespun, but it's what made complete sense - to first bring on that whimsical mismatched chair vibe. To make your planning easier, we have added 120 (clean & coated) mismatched beauts to our rental inventory!

In other really great news, for those who seek that fine balance of old & new, we will have another single styled chair option in 2017. Be sure to follow / like all our social media outlets for the latest and greatest announcements!

A picture is worth a thousand words.

...but like, what is a real life first impression worth? For us, our response to people seeing and feeling our farmhouse tables for the first time has been quite humbling and a great bit flattering. It makes these early, new business days all the more encouraging. 

On top of making holmespun tables, Kevin helps run his Dad's furniture store in Phoenixville. We've had a holmespun table here and there at the store in between events and each time, someone has admired and inquired about purchasing 'that table'. Someday we hope to be there but for now, holmespun in focusing on rentals only.

With such positive feedback, we thought it was a no brainer to design a little nook in the warehouse and dedicate it to a table display. We believe in our product and we believe the images our dear photog friends have captured do our tables beautiful justice. But we also recognize there are people of all kinds; if you are a visual person who appreciates seeing products in the flesh before putting down that deposit, come visit us at the Home Furnishings Market (see map below)! Ask for Kevin and put a face with a name...we can't wait to meet those we are destined to meet and to work with you for some of life's grandest celebrations.

all of our love,

Alexa

 

ryan + cindy - john james audubon center

Ryan is one of three boys; all dear childhood friends who lived across the street from my family. They are bound to be a part of every fond memory on Waterview Road. For Kevin and I to be a part of this wedding day, in even the smallest way, was such an honor. To top it off, Ryan + Cindy were our first rental since launching holmespun; talk about a beautiful entry into the future of our business!

& his bride, Cindy. I couldn't dream up such a good-hearted soul for Ryan to share this life with. Their many days ahead are destined to be a sublime one stuffed with worldly travels, many cats (chasing Phish) and them beaming smiles.

Her flawless taste in finding just the right wedding vendors / design certainly contributes to all the magic in their day. I mean...a photographer who snaps in digital AND film?! Talk about high school, photo-student nostalgia!
