The High Boy

2

Happy Thursday, friends! When it comes to things we love, antique furniture is definitely at the top of the list. And, for the best of the best, the High Boy has long been a favorite, go-to spot! But, now they’ve sweetened the deal. Not only is the site full of fabulous furniture and accessories, but it’s also home of The Weekly.

It’s a virtual buffet of gorgeous inspiration photos, incredible in-depth interviews at sneak peeks at totally unique experiences — like an enchanted English wedding with a nod to the past. And now, without further ado, some of our favorite High Boy eye candy!

On a freezing cold day like today a seat by the fire sure would be nice. We think these bamboo stools are a cool twist on the idea!

 Happy, happy Monday, sweet friends! We hope you are all having a great morning. I turned in the final, final draft of my novel, Dear Carolina, on Friday, so today feels like a good day for a little celebration — and a lot of retail therapy! We thought we’d share a few of our favorite, fabulous pieces from one of our favorite shops, The Highboy, in case you are in need of a little purchase as well!

Finding gorgeous furniture can be a little bit tricky — and gorgeous one of a kind pieces? Even trickier!

That’s why we were so excited to be introduced to friends Kendall Drake and Bernadette Truxal of Maison & Co.!

They turned a passion for great design, French antiques and European culture into a business, importing their finds from French villages, brocantes and antiques fairs and making them available to people like us.

Antique Linens

There’s no doubt about it: Some things simply get better with age.
My Country Home
Wine, dry-aged beef, and, of course, linens.

Karen Lawson

We can buy them, monogram them and try to make them look old…

But, as with so many things in life, there’s no substitute for the real thing!

Yup, you guessed it. We are crazy about antique linens.

Of course, the family heirlooms, the ones with family members’ monograms and special memories woven into their fibers, are the best.

But, even those without special significance to us look gorgeous hanging in the powder room!

It’s something to think about when deciding whether to splurge on those pricey linens that are sure to become heirlooms for our heirs…

I’ll admit it: I’m pretty bad about buying Christmas gifts for myself. But gorgeous linens make that trend seem a little less selfish… Something beautiful to enjoy today that can be enjoyed for decades to come by someone else. (We can rationalize anything!) We hope your holiday shopping — and entertaining — is going as beautifully as, well, antique linens!
