New Arrivals: Sofa Table + Grey-Legged Farm Table

This week’s new arrivals are full of personality. Two tables with different styles.

This ordinary sofa table got some love before it joined the collection. With its grey-brown finish, it is the perfect neutral. I’m picturing it laden with favors or desserts with flowers spilling out of the drawers.

16″ x 70″ x 31″

We’ve got farm tables in all shapes and sizes and this newbie will fit right in with its small scale and grey legs. Guest books, cakes, or photographs will be right at home on top of this beauty.

Sew in Love with Utterly Engaged

If you haven’t yet seen the Sew in Love feature in Utterly Engaged’s latest issue, you should. We’re excited to share the inspiration that we found as we collaborated on this wedding dress-centric project.

When the UE girls said “sew”, Jeni’s mind immediately started reeling with mannequins, vintage sewing tables, and notions galore. She loves anything having to do with fabric (that’s probably why she’s constantly reupholstering things) and this photo shoot was right up her alley. Bolts of fabric, dollies, vintage spools, clothespins, and a glamorous vanity vignette resulted.

The white ladders and sewing machine tables provided a crisp clean backdrop for this fashion-focused photo shoot. The gold touches in the chandeliers and King Louis chairs added the chic accents this Vanity Fair-inspired shoot required.

Aren’t the florals from JL Designs striking? And we just love the gorgeous cake from Sweet & Saucy Shop. They both rocked the old-meets-new vibe.

New Arrivals: Flour Bin Table, Birdcage & More

Over the weekend, Jeni did some great finding. Check out the latest additions to the Found Vintage Rentals Collection.

A fabulous rustic table with a flour bin, drawer, and pull-out cutting board. Imagine it with overflowing flowers filling the drawers as sweet accents for a cake table.

The flour bin table is 42.75″ wide, 25.5″ deep, and 30.5″ tall.

This little black cart will join our other metal carts as a side table in a seating vignette or as an industrial accent table in a grouping or display.

The little black cart is 19.5″ wide, 14″ deep, and 27″ tall.

Don’t you love this birdcage? I can just see it as an accessory in a tablescape with family photos or holding cards for the bride and groom.

The birdcage is 21″ wide, 9.5″ deep, and 39″ tall.

I can’t wait to tuck escort cards into this chipping white and blue shutter. Isn’t the little knob sweet?

The distressed white and blue shutter is 24″ wide, 76″ tall, and 1.5″ deep.

Let us know what you think of our fabulous new finds this week.

History of European Grain Sacks

Now that you’ve seen our latest arrivals, we thought we’d share more about the cool grain sacks that grace the seats of many of our chairs.

European grain sacks have shown up everywhere from pillows to curtains in home decor lately. The hemp and linen textiles are handwoven or homespun and can date back to the early 1800s. They range in shades of grey, warm creams, and sun-bleached white and have a variety of textures from loose to tight and neat. Most have stripes or other bands (usually blue or red) and rare grain sacks can even be found with text or designs printed on them. Farmers individualized these designs so they could identify their own sacks when transporting grain, flour, or sugar. Some even initialed the sacks with their families’ monogram to further distinguish them.

We’ve used grain sacks to upholster several one-of-a-kind pieces. Here are a few chairs we rent that incorporate these incredible textiles.

New Arrivals: Cream & Black Grain Sack Wingbacks

Here at Found, we’ve always got our eyes peeled for fabulous pieces. Sometimes that means we have to look for the diamond in the rough. Tables that need an extra coat of paint, a trunk that needs a little love, chairs that could use some fresh stuffing. We’re not afraid of putting in a little elbow grease, especially when we get to add some flair.

Jeni just designed these incredible wingbacks. When she found them, they were a little worse for wear but she saw something better. Old ugly chairs were transformed by upholstering them with black striped antique homespun Hungarian grain sacks. Don’t you just love the fresh black and white piping too?

Come See Us at Hitched!

We’re stoked to be part of an upcoming curated wedding event at Smog Shoppe: Hitched. The gals over at Bash Please have put together a rad group of wedding pros that are going to have a great time together. On September 23rd, there will be cocktails, fab decor, yummy food and good company. Even if no brides show, it will be a great party.

We do hope brides and grooms come along too, though. Join us.

Jessica Claire Workshop: Camp Style Wedding

While we’re all about the craft hut and new friendships of summer camp, it can be tough to translate the love of outdoors into a lovely wedding celebration. Ashlyn & Heather of Carter & Cook did just that at the latest Jessica Claire Workshop. Their uncampy camp theme came across beautifully with rustic touches and a casual vibe.

This simple ceremony set-up makes the couple the focal point.

Simple touches like eucalyptus leaves on the back of ceremony chairs can make any seat special.

Our rustic red metal folding side tables just beg for beautiful programs.

Don’t you love the cantaloupe-turned-decor on this rustic farm table for the reception? We do!

We really dig these cakes… especially on top of our red metal table. We’re always fans of treats from Sweet & Saucy Shop and these toasted marshmallow beauties fit the bill for a slice around the campfire.

Wouldn’t you love a campfire (sans smoke) with your friends to end your celebration?

Our bingo cards were just begging to be part of the campfire fun.

Thanks to Carter & Cook for inviting us to be a part of this wonderful team.
