First, the Fall Foliage report from Andover. Peak!
Back to the thanksgiving project, "unique things we can get in a hurry", these gold goodies will make any corner shine.
Revered since time immemorial, gold's lustre is unmistakable. Queen of metals, it ranges from fine pale yellow to in your face brassy, burnished to broken, antiqued to shiny, mellow to molten. There's something primal about its appeal and warm glow.
Paris the sheltie is not available but her antique French dog bed is. This is a great example of mixing a contemporary rug with traditional furnishings; it works. Beautifully. Paris' bed is 19th century (Circa 1850, Napoleon III period), in the Louis XV style, and appears to have been originally gilded. The dimensions are approximately 22” wide, 22” deep and 19 ½” high. From Trianon Antiques in Boston, 617 443 1020. ....and I wouldn't mind that chest behind Paris either.
Flor's modular carpet, "Feelin Groovy" in Glitzy Gold. While this carpet seems made for a contemporary setting, it works beautifully in more traditional vignettes. Nylon cut and loop pile is pleasant to the foot, hard wearing, easy to clean and a 40% post industrial recycled content eases our sustainability sensibilities.
