Scott Antique Market: Part 2

Here it is March 1st (is anybody else out there happy February is over?) and I still haven't finished posting about my visit to Scott's last month. First up, the incredibly gorgeous work of Atlanta furniture designer Kevin Scanlon (kpscanlon (at) earthlink.net, 312.287.9828). The finish of this wood is unbelievable - feels as smooth as marble to the hand.

Classic X motif tables with just the right amount of industrial edge.
A restored deed cabinet repurposed for wine bottles. This was a stunning piece that sold quickly.
A metal bookcase with a beautiful patina.
Also loved this marble topped console with the X base. Again, the perfect balance of classic elements with an urban, industrial feel.

Here's one of the more beautifully staged booths at Scott's and it was full of unique, special pieces. Pam Haskins and Mary Meyerhoffer have an antique store, Tuesdays on the Boulevard in Yorktown, VA (757. 898. 1898), and couldn't have been nicer to chat with.
Here's a beautiful screen that they mentioned was most likely from the 1920's.
One of my favorite pieces from the show - adore this color blue paired with black.
Always a great find when unique, vintage chairs come in a set of 6.
One of my favorite booths was bookseller Sonny Ideker's collection of antiquarian and rare leather and vellum bound books. Surrounded by all these books I felt temporarily removed from all the goings-on at Scott's.
Looking at all these gorgeous bindings makes me think sometimes it's more than ok just to buy a book because it's pretty. (Sonny Ideker, rekedi (at) aol.com, 770.853.3311)

Last up, the the pressed ferns of Dawna E. Layman (majolicalady (at) earthlink.net, 770.401.9011) I immediately thought of Lauren of Pure Style when I saw these.

Other fun at Scott's:

The donuts at the end made me giggle.

I love that deed cabinet turned wine storage - I see why it was snapped up quickly! I can't wait until you find the business card - that vignette is stunning.

I have got to get over there.
Have a great week.

I am overjoyed that Feb is done. It was too cold and too busy. So, now I'm just excited to see the sun and count the days until Spring is official. Though we'll be lucky to hit the 50s by then!

Anyhooooo....love what you found at Scott's...especially those books with flowers creeping up the spine.

Lucky you...can't wait to see the rest.

Just the right amount of industrial chic can add such texture to a home...love those tables and shelves.

Danielle Sigwalt Interiors said...

Love those mirrors in the background of the first image and those framed pressed ferns are just so lovely! I like the industrial bookcases as well and would probably pair them with vintage pieces for an eclectic feel. I'm going to have to check this place out at some point...

Lots of good decorative furnishing PLUS donuts? That is a winning combination!

Ryland Witt said...

The vintage chairs are absolutely beautiful- and I can't believe they had 6!!!!!

Oh what a fun place to shop! The screen and the books would be enough to keep me happy.

Kevin Scanlon seems to have disappeared. Does anyone know where he is located or can provide me the name of his "foundry" where he was having work performed?

Does anyone know how to reach Ms. Layman with the pressed flowers? I need to purchase a few as a gift asap and the contact info above apparently has changed. Does anyone know if she has a website?
