Happy St. Patrick’s Month!! In honor of the season, our featured item this month is this gilt and light green onyx floor lamp, which we have paired with a modern shade. Fully functional, it looks beautiful when lit! The lamp dates from the early 20th century. Consider how it could serve as a reading lamp between a pair of chairs from that period or how it could add an eclectic touch to a room with more contemporary furniture. Lots of possibilities . . .
While you’re envisioning options for your home, you may want to think about updating the look by reupholstering some of your well-loved pieces. The Upholstery & Caning examples tab on our website at http://irongateantiques.com/upholstery-examples/ shows how pieces can be transformed from literally trash to treasure. Bob’s happy to send fabric sample books home to help you imagine a new look for your pieces!
If you’re looking for a way to celebrate St. Patrick’s, on March 18th Leesburg will host a Family Fun Saturday with balloon artists, face painting, crafts, and live performances, including Celtic Rhythm School of Dance doing some Irish dance at the Town Green stage beginning at 11 A.M. There’s even an opportunity to participate by learning some ceili dances, so come out and give it a try! These free events take place monthly when the weather cooperates with info posted on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/leesburgsfamilyfunsaturday/.
We wish you the luck of the Irish!
