While I was in Maine I met up with Tricia Mitchell of Avolli. I had a blast checking out her collection of antiques from Scandinavia. Tricia explained that many of pieces found had layers and layers of paint covering their beauty. Her pieces are carefully restored to their original finish when possible. My favorites pieces belong to the Gustavian style (1700-1800’s). I love the softness of the style infused with a bit of rococo femininity.
Above and below a few shots of the warehouse in Scarbourgh, Maine. Check upholstery displayed on the backs of side chairs is so pretty and surprising. Tricia’s pieces are top notch and display the finest examples of the period. Every piece is absolutely perfect and gorgeous. They are pricey but investing in quality antiques will hold it’s value for generations. Hmm what should I save up for first? Check out Avolli.com for detailed info on all the pieces shown and to make appointments to visit the showroom: avolli.com.
p.s. Tricia blogged about me too, see here.
