With Wheaton's Memorial Day parade scheduled for Monday, May 31 starting at 10:00 a.m. (for details go to http://www.wheaton.il.us/ and click on calendar of events) and Elmhurst's parade starting at 9:30 (http://www.elmhurst.org/) you have plenty of time either today (Friday 1 to 8) or tomorrow (Saturday 9 to 4) to stop by Jubilee Furniture to check out what's "new" without missing a single marching band or firetruck! As always, I have some photos of the most recent additions to our inventory:
hands down, this is my favorite piece this week (though I also very much like some cool mid-century orange chairs we got in too - you'll see photos below). It's a stainless steel rolling kitchen island which measures 5' long, 2' wide and 34" high and priced $295
we got in a Howard Miller grandfather clock a week ago and I forgot to show you - so am doing so now. It works, lovely chimes every 15 minutes, and is priced $550
floral rocker/recliner for $50
dresser $95 and matching desk w/chair for $40
table, 1 leaf and 5 chairs for $75
Steelcase task table for $45 (and we have three of them) and the chairs are by J.G. Furniture Co. and priced $20 each
round table for $65 and six chairs for $75 (for all six of 'em)
here are the orange chairs I mentioned earlier. I love the seamless line of the upholstered part which flows from the front to behind the back of the chair - can you see what I mean? They sit low, but are very comfortable (because of the angle of the seat) and I couldn't find any thing to identify who manufactured them. The fabric is actually zippered onto the frame and then stapled - does that help anyone? I priced them $75 each and I don't know if that's a steal or not. I guess time will tell!
this is a huge sectional - it's actually 5 pieces - two pieces recline and there is a sleeper in another one of the sections. We took one of the armless pieces out of the configuration - but you can add it back in which would actually better balance the short part of the "L" and is priced $245
looks like stone - but without the weight! Unique coffee table for $95
okay these Room & Board pieces require some "splainin" (name the character and TV show which debuted on 10/15/1951 who said "splainin"). There is a sofa and chair and they look pretty good in my top photos - but look at the bottom photos. The pieces originally had a pattern impressed onto the fabric which appears to have disappeared with wear. They're not bad - other than the disappearing pattern and some stains and I've priced them to sell - sofa for $35 and chair for $50 (chair's in better condition than the sofa - thus the higher price tag). Remember all sales are final!
we really got in some cool mid-century pieces this week - here's a yellow leather (I think - it's hard for me to tell leather from really good fake stuff) chair and the white frame is metal for $65, sofa for $85 and coffee table for $40 and the pieces are very heavy (just an interesting note)
gorgeous three piece sectional with chaise for $395
Steelcase armless desk chair (note the four prong legs) with nubby orange fabric for $50 (and we got in 3? 4? of these plus two with arms which I priced - I think - $65 and one of the armed ones is a different color)
this is a buttery yellow sofa by Klaussner - which ServiceMaster just professionally cleaned yesterday - priced $125 - thank you ServiceMaster!
