Vintage Scout now has Kravet

We are so ridiculously excited about our new fabrics and trims from Kravet and Lee Jofa! You won't want to miss stopping by the studio to see what's new for your fall redecorating projects. The patterns. The hand. The colors. We could go on and on! Come by and see for yourself and let the Scouts help you update your home for the holidays.

Take a seat

Just in the studio- this pair of gorgeous mid-century occasional chairs. We've updated them with a black finish and upholstered them in a contrasting, gently textured, fabric. We love the tapered shape of the legs. These chairs would be a statement where ever you might place them. Try them flanking your fireplace. Ironic, isn't it; that a piece of the past can update your future.

Somebody Bring Me A Mirror

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who has the most elegant looks of all? The Vintage Scout Studio, of course. We have a new shipment of mirrors that can accommodate a variety of spaces and attitudes.
The Rococo-inspired Patrizia mirror ($477) measures 34 inches by 77 inches. It could be hung horizontally over a sideboard in a dining room to create a dramatic dining experience. Or lean it vertically for a more modern edge.
The gilded sunburst style of the Hesperia mirror ($150) makes it a great accent piece for any wall. The mirror (28 inches in diameter) is perfect to hang in a hallway in order to check your hair or lipstick before heading out the door. And the price is right!
Many other mirrors are available in the studio including several vintage ones. If you don't see one that works in your space, let the Scouts guide you through our many sources to find the right mirror to brighten your interior with grace and originality.

Puccini would be proud

Scouts Jean and Dana were on hand for the Dayton Opera Guild's annual BRAVO! Champagne Brunch and Fashion Show this past Friday at Sinclair Community College's Ponitz Center. The Scouts had a small sampling of what's available in their studio to help support the Opera Guild and also give the attendees a glimpse of the glamour the Scouts can stage in any home. Among the items displayed are Le Jacquard Francais Tea Towels, Cucina Soaps, French Laundry Furniture & Fabrics, and Delirium Candles.

A "Jazzy" Piece of Furniture

The Scouts visited the Garden District of New Orleans just weeks before the horrific force of Hurricane Katrina struck the area. They loved the city and its myriad of restaurants, antiques, boutiques, museums and friendly residents.
A set of cherry corner cabinets from the Coleman (of the Coleman camping gear) mansion was one of the Scouts’ purchases. The two early 20th century cabinets measure 9 1/2' tall and deserve a home that is worthy of their noble stature. The accompanying crown trim is included as well. They would be smashing in a dining room, kitchen, office, or even a bedroom suite. If you are interested in having an elegant remnant of The Big Easy in your home, contact the Scouts at 937.312.9461 or info@vintagescout.com
