Here is the latest piece of furniture to enter our home on the ongoing furniture carousel.
Love the details --And the patina!
It seems as though I've had a love/hate relationship with my dish cupboards over the years. It all started with the one below. We were 23 years old; and this was the most expensive piece of new furniture we had bought to date -- an Ethan Allen maple hutch. I was so proud! It stayed with us through moves to six different houses.
But, house #6 was a 1898 Victorian, and I was wanting something old to more suit the house. So, we sold my Ethan Allen to my sister-in-law.
Next, filtering down through the family was this old buffet. This was the only picture I could find; taken on a Christmas morning with all of the mess included. This Craftsman buffet survived a couple more house moves.
Next came this curved glass china cupboard; we had moved to another Victorian house, and had inherited a bunch more dishes.
After moving to our current 1980s ranch 16 years ago, I endured the curved glass cabinet for a number of years; but never really liked it in this house. We had a chance to sell it, so it was out of here. In came this 1920s cupboard. It has been holding part of my dish addiction for a couple of years.
It was still a little too fancy, so I've been pining for something to more suit our current aesthetic of simple and rustic.
And so we have the new (old) buffet. Surprisingly, we haven't been trading up as the new piece cost less than any of the other cupboards with the exception of the free family buffet.
It's any one's guess how long this one will remain in favor. Does anyone else suffer from furniture fickleness?
