Jubilee Furniture weekly update post for Thursday, January 29, 2015

Hello!

Thanks for stopping by to check out some of the inventory currently available at Jubilee Furniture today (I say “today” because it might be sold by tomorrow or Saturday). The Furniture Gallery is another place to “virtually walk through the store” (though once something is purchased it doesn’t immediately get removed from the Gallery [and never removed from this blog]– so if you have your heart set on something you might want to phone first to see if it’s still available – 630.784.2890).

A late arrival at the store last night combined with a doctor’s appointment cut down on the amount of time I had to take photos – so though there aren’t as many as I normally take, please know there’s a lot more inventory than shown here.

Let’s begin:

JFC 01-29-15 012JFC 01-29-15 013

unique wood framed sofa that sits directly on the floor (price tag calls it a “European sofa”) – enough spots for me to say the whole things needs to be cleaned – but structurally in excellent condition. Priced $225

JFC 01-29-15 014JFC 01-29-15 015

JFC 01-29-15 029JFC 01-29-15 030JFC 01-29-15 031JFC 01-29-15 032

contemporary style black (or is it dark brown?) leather and chrome chairs – all four need fixing where the leather is coming apart at the top sides (see first photo second row). Priced $60 for all four

JFC 01-29-15 037JFC 01-29-15 038JFC 01-29-15 039JFC 01-29-15 040

this is a GORGEOUS leather sofa with down cushions – yes it’s faded, yes it’s worn, yes it’s stained – but man-oh-man it has character to spare and is extremely comfortable (as in I could sleep on this sofa). I totally want to buy this piece especially because it’s priced $85

Next week marks Jubilee Furniture's 9th anniversary and I’ll have some interesting information to share about where we started and where we are now – thanks to customers, donors and volunteers like you, dear reader! It’s really a remarkable journey.

Oh, and whoever purchased that awesome, large, blue table lamp with the cherub on it that I had on the blog last week – would you email me a photo of it in your home, please (sgalbraith@outreachcommin.org)? I’d love to see what you did with it! Thanks!

Jubilee Furniture weekly update post for Thursday, January 22, 2015

JFC 01-22-15 002JFC 01-22-15 003JFC 01-22-15 005JFC 01-22-15 006JFC 01-22-15 007JFC 01-22-15 008JFC 01-22-15 009JFC 01-22-15 010

Welcome to the Jubilee Furniture blog where each week I show you some of our current inventory with the hopes we have whatever you’re looking for and you decide to stop in and see the item in person and…buy it! With every sale helping to support the programs and services at Outreach Community Ministries – your purchase goes a lot farther then you might realize!

When we moved into our building last March – we knew we needed more space for both our showroom and the warehouse. Construction started in the fall to enclose the overhang on the west side of the building and every week or so I’ve been showing you photos of the progress.

And boy-oh-boy – look where we’re at this week! Walls are up, dry-walled and even painted! Windows are in and this space will be flooded with natural light! We can’t wait to start using this roughly 3,000 square foot addition because the 17,000 square feet we currently have isn’t enough for all our amazing inventory.

Speaking of our current inventory – remember the Furniture Gallery is an online resource for taking a look at what’s available (and there are cool sorting tabs) as well as here! So, let’s get started.

 JFC 01-22-15 011JFC 01-22-15 012

gorgeous Hufford Furniture Co. sofa in excellent condition! Priced $265

JFC 01-22-15 013JFC 01-22-15 014

I THINK this Ethan Allen chair and ottoman are leather – but I’m not 100% sure. Regardless, at $95 for something in great condition – it’s a bargain!

JFC 01-22-15 015JFC 01-22-15 016

this lovely, deep purple micro-suede sofa is beautiful! Excellent condition and priced $325

JFC 01-22-15 017JFC 01-22-15 018

lovely muted green sofa in good shape – priced $115

JFC 01-22-15 019JFC 01-22-15 020

these Leather Center pieces, I know, are leather! Black leather loveseat for $145; matching sofa for $165 (a little wear on the sofa)

JFC 01-22-15 021JFC 01-22-15 022

sweet pine writing desk for $65 (missing one knob)

JFC 01-22-15 023JFC 01-22-15 024JFC 01-22-15 026JFC 01-22-15 027

really nice Alan White gray sofa for $65; glass and metal coffee table for $75; matching Alan White oversize chaise for $55 (small rip on one arm of the chaise); matching glass and metal end table for $45 and there are two of them (both priced $45)

JFC 01-22-15 028JFC 01-22-15 030

though it needs some work restoring the finish – this walnut drop leaf table for $65 is worth the effort!

JFC 01-22-15 031JFC 01-22-15 032

if you’ve ever wanted a conversation starting, one-of-a-kind piece of furniture – this large table lamp fits the bill! Priced $45 (love the cherub peeking around the base). Just wish I’d had time to plug it in so I could see how it looked with the light shining through the blue glass!

JFC 01-22-15 033JFC 01-22-15 034JFC 01-22-15 035

now you see it – now you don’t! Even the chair back folds down and fits inside this amazing computer/work space! In great shape. Priced $175

JFC 01-22-15 036JFC 01-22-15 037

sunny yellow loveseat that opens into a bed! Needs to be cleaned. Priced $45

JFC 01-22-15 038JFC 01-22-15 039

excellent condition mission style sofa for $145

JFC 01-22-15 040JFC 01-22-15 041JFC 01-22-15 042JFC 01-22-15 043JFC 01-22-15 044JFC 01-22-15 045JFC 01-22-15 046

starting with the trestle table – both ends have a leaf that pulls out and up – solid wood construction – needs to be refinished – priced $135. Then take a look at the six chairs around the table. Made by Dinaire Furniture of Buffalo, NY. An online resource I found describes a set they had as follows:

“Set of six modern spindle back casual dining chairs, with nods to both Nakashima and Wegner. Seats are a shovel design, with spindles turned to resemble cattails. Very well made with one piece curved back frames and made of oak in a nice tobacco finish.”

The six we have need to be cleaned, certain spindles need to be re-glued, maybe refinish all six – but the design is crazy amazing and at $120 for the set – what a deal!

JFC 01-22-15 047JFC 01-22-15 048

at 8’ long and 30” deep this credenza would provide a ton of storage and it looks great too! One water stain on the top that needs work. Priced $135 (there’s an odd piece of glass sitting on top that isn’t part of the credenza)

JFC 01-22-15 049JFC 01-22-15 050

lovely antique cabinet – priced $65

JFC 01-22-15 051JFC 01-22-15 052

this one piece open shelf china cabinet is begging for a make-over – but it has great bones and would look AMAZING once painted/antiqued/striped and stained! Priced $55

JFC 01-22-15 053JFC 01-22-15 054

gorgeous king-size metal head board, foot board and side rails – priced $225 (mattress and box springs sold separately)

JFC 01-22-15 055JFC 01-22-15 056

sweet four drawer small dresser with pull out shelf (Bombay Co?) – priced $45

JFC 01-22-15 057JFC 01-22-15 058

tile top table w/1 leaf and six chairs – all in good condition – priced $95

Until next week, dear reader! God bless you and keep you.
