Swivel on these !

Check out this pair of funky 1970s swivel chairs.  We've reupholstered them in gorgeous antique orange velvet. Definitely a steal at just €59 each.

TLC Update

We would just like to say thanks to all of our friends, old and new, for coming out to support us at the fabulous Newmarket Brocante yesterday.  Jenny and I are delighted that so many of you managed to take home one or two of our lovely pieces.  We hope they'll give you great pleasure for many years to come.  We are now searching for more little gems and have some great new stock arriving this week.  We'll have pics and prices up very soon.

Newmarket Brocante this Sunday

We've been getting a great response to the blog so far, so thanks for all your support. Aside from burst pipes flooding the place and distracting us from getting some more work done, we are well on the way to being ready for this Sunday's Brocante Market (see newmarketbrocante.com). It is on from 11am until 5pm in New Market Square - same place as the organic co-op in the Coombe. So why not drop by and enjoy some live music, coffee, great food and maybe pick up a bargain or two ? We've got some fab new pieces including a couple of funky orange velvet and chrome swivel chairs. They're being reupholstered tomorrow so we'll get some photos up asap.
We are trying to decide what else to bring along. Let us know if you have any requests! We will also have some lampshades. They are covered with marimekko fabric designed by one of our favourite designers, Maija Isola. The one in the photos here is called Tansu and was designed in 1960. Timeless I think. We have 9inch and 14inch lampshades for sale which can be used as ceiling light shades or with a lamp base. The bases in the photos are sold. I made them myself and will be making some more soon. See you sunday. Aoife.

My name is Aoife. Jenny and I are on a new work adventure. We have set up a furniture business. We've been working on it for a few months now and it seems to be taking shape, one baby step at a time.
We buy mid century furniture; mostly danish/scandinavian design, and lovingly restore it. We call ourselves Table Lighting Chair. Get it?
So far the most popular items have been dining tables and chairs. In general the tables are teak, both solid and veneered. The chairs are left with their original upholstery if it is in good nick, otherwise we reupholster with funky textiles, like the photo of the chair here.

We spent yesterday down at our studio cleaning the place up and getting it ready for an opening (yet to be decided!). We are located off Donore Avenue, Rutledge Terrace, Dublin 8. It was freezing down there but a few pairs of socks and thermals as well as plenty of scrubbing and moving of furniture heated us up nicely. We got a few good photos. All the snow, crisp blue white proved a perfect backdrop. The photos will be uploaded very soon.
Next week will be a busy one. We are at the brocante market next sunday, 17th January 2010. See www.newmarketbrocante.com for more info. So we will spend the week preparing for it. Come down and see us there.
