Keep Furniture Needs in Mind
I found this great overly tufted settee. To freshen up the Louis XV inspired style, I'd cover it in a pretty linen fabric with about half the number of tufts for a cleaner, more modern look that will save you money.
Look Out for Silver Pieces
Several dealers toward the front of the South Building have unusual silver-plated pieces in various states of disrepair. Don't be discouraged by heavy tarnish or even a little deterioration. I buy pieces like this for a song and then turn them into heirlooms after either a heavy cleaning or with some help from a professional restoration company. At Scott's I picked several pieces of copper and silver to be restored.
