The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Ethel loves old movies and has a soft spot for Sergio Leone, the king of the Spaghetti Westerns. So imagine how happy she was when we found this sofa and chair set, straight from circa 1960’s Italy!

The cushions are reversible so you have basic brown tweed, or manly man plaid.

We think Clint would approve.

Sofa is $495, chair is $295.

UPDATE: Chair & sofa have sold!

From the same house came a set of three matching solid wood coffee tables. Made in Elmira, Ontario from 1959, we’re guessing this trio has seen it’s share of cocktail parties. Each table is in great shape, with some surface wear, (some worse than others.).

The tall square table has a small spot of veneer damage, seen here.

Tall table is $175.

The low round table has the same elegant legs as the square tables and is just shy of 36" in diameter.
It has some marring on the surface finish, which would disappear if you were to strip and refinish it.

Round table is $175

UPDATE: Round table has sold!

The low square table has the same elegant legs as it's brothers, seen above.
However, it seemed to have fared worse over the years, with some gouges in the corner.

Low table is $75.

UPDATE: Low table has sold!

To complete the Italian Stallion look, how about this pair of horses?

Horse art is $175

A label on the back proudly declares it is a "Turner Wall Accessory" , which could explain why we were told this same art was used on the set of I dream of Jeannie.

If you love the orange but you're not a horse person, how about this small resin coated abstract?

Orange abstract is $75.
UPDATE: Art has sold!

Small enough for table top, it can add a pop of colour anywhere.

If cats are more your speed, how about this pair of stylish felines?

Similar to Witco, this pair of elegant wooden kitties are mounted to a burlap backing and are framed in a simple wooden frame. Meow!

$95 for the pair.

UPDATE: Kitty cat art has sold!

So If you’re looking for something good, something bad or even something ugly, we’re sure Ethel can help you out!

See you at the store!
