Inside the Villa

July 26, 2013

Back to business at Robuck (it’s not all shopping and rosé)!  Beyond cleaning and polishing furniture we often need to rewire and restore light fixtures before we can post them to our website. 

On the last container, we had four significant chandeliers just waiting for their modeling careers to start. I actually named the Sicilian 8-light, King. It has that kind of impact. Lighting is always one of our most challenging categories to acquire and the quickest to find new residence.  I love when our clients juxtapose the serious with the unexpected.  King would do just fine in a well-appointed farmhouse at this stage of his life. 

Everything posted over the last two weeks is notable and unique.  It will certainly be exciting to follow where these pieces begin anew.  I happen to believe they started somewhere that looked like this-

Kindest Regards,
