Eddie Ross Sold My Chairs!

Last weekend Hubby and I went to the Richmond Home Show.  Eddie Ross was doing a presentation on using color in your home. I saw Eddie In November when he did a show for Richmond Magazine and he did such a great job I was excited to see him again. We both really enjoyed his presentation and his philosophy that you don't have to spend a fortune to have a beautiful home.


 


On Twitter Eddie mentioned his visit to Richmond and West End Antique Mall, where I happen to be a dealer. He posted a photo of two chairs in my space that he liked. OMG, The Eddie Ross likes my taste!  A couple of days later a lady saw the chairs on Twitter and came into West End Mall and bought them.  Thank you Eddie for helping with this sale and when you are back in Richmond I owe you lunch! 


SOLD

Ah Sherry! So thrilled you sold the chairs, though I must say: I wish it had been us who'd bought them! (No room in the overhead bin, I'm afraid). Thank you for making the effort to come and see me too! Until next time...

That is an awesome story, that kid(Eddie Ross) packs a powerful design punch and those chairs ARE stunning! Did you recover them? or just the seller?

I saw those chairs! I loved them. I love Eddie Ross too. I was hoping to meet him when he's in Los Angeles for the Rose Bowl Flea Mart but I'm not going to be able to make it.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting and commenting on my post about vagazzling. I laughed when you said last thing you want is to worry about losing your crystals :-)

OMG! How awesome that he bought ur chairs! And I'm so jealous that u've seen/met him. Not once but twice! I love going to antiques shops sooo much. Have u been to Roundtop in Texas?

Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by the blog & joining our month-long giveaways from the shop & I'm so honored & grateful for ur kind words about the shop. :)

What neat chairs and what an interesting story of how they were sold. Congrats! Hopefully, he'll take you up on your lunch offer next time he is in town. Stopping in from SITS.

So, I won't lie- I have no idea how to decorate, and I don't know who Eddie Ross is, but those chairs are AWESOME! And as soon as my girls are old enough to keep spit up and jelly covered hands off of my furniture, you and I should have a talk!
Congrats on the sale, and for being having your work recognized by someone whose work you admire!

Patti said...
