Tricia’s 10: The Find


  

Depending on what type of designer (or consumer) you are, the thrill of decorating

can be found in various stages of the process.  If you are the inquisitive type, then

“the hunt” probably tops your list.  Scouring dusty secondhand stores, upscale

antique shops and the multitude of online resources is time-consuming, but almost

always exciting.  And to find that special something you need patience, focus and

a dose of good luck.  Below are ten great “finds”  from the Huntley & Co. archives. 

Some of the items required a substantial amount of research.  Others were a matter

of serendipity.  In either case, they all have one thing in common.  Finding the right

piece is just leg work.  What you do with it is what really counts.  Happy hunting!
