Antique Love......New Find!

Living in New England we’re blessed with many things, one being antique shops. One serendipitous find and my favorite is a place called Red Chair Antiques owned and operated by Jocie Sinauer since 1997.

Frequent trips abroad to Europe as well along the Eastern seaboard she’s able to stock her shop with French, Swedish and American furniture as well as some amazing smalls.

You'll find stacks of linen sheets, hemp runners and grain sacks......

Stacks of pillows made from grain sacks and linens brought back from France.....

and artful displays and vignettes. Pictured above is a French mirror paired with a Hungarian bread cabinet and small zinc it!

Jocie and her husband Dave Chicane, who’s an amazing chef and restaurant owner, have had their home photographed for numerous publications. Pictured above and below are two shots from their home, look how calm and soothing the rooms are, Dave has a great eye too!

Look above the window there on the left, don't you love how Jocie hung an antique curtain rod without a curtain! Would you believe those amazing swing arm lights aren't antiques but from pottery barn and those from their local recycling center.

Since it was a long holiday weekend I decided to get out and do a little browsing. A few things caught my eye like this burlap covered chair.

This amazing French hutch that Jocie had flown over from France really wanted to come home with me but the husband was there and I like living but isn't it GORGEOUS?

So in the interest of a happy marriage and the fact I had been looking for a reasonably price French bistro table in black this one came home with me. I'm not quite sure where it's going yet but at least the husband liked it too. If you see anything pictured that caught your eye, not my bistro table, give Jocie a call since she does ship. Be sure to visit her website as well.

Great finds and I love your table. I'm looking for one just like it but 36" round. They are very hard to find.

Wonderful information! We are heading to Maine soon to look at colleges, and I am heading to my Google maps to see how far away this wonderful shop might be! Just lovely.

This does look fun, sometimes I get the impression there's a better selection of French antiques in America than in France!
