OK, who out there loves to watch “American Pickers” on the History Channel? We call across the house, “Hey, American Pickers is on!” I just love to see people’s junky barns, and I’m always amazed at the treasures that Mike and Frank find (they don’t know it, but we’re on a first name basis). And we talk to the TV saying things like, “Come on, you’ve gotta sell that! Get rid of some of your stuff, for Pete’s sake!”
Anyway, it was a happy day when Alex Cirimelli, proprietress of Serenite’ Maison in Leipers Fork, TN asked me to come with her to measure for cushions for Mike Wolfe’s kitchen banquette. The cushions had to be custom cut and made because of their unusual size and shape. This banquette is the gathering place for meals and much laughter, so Alex chose gray linen for the cushions and back pillows to give the nook a calm and earthy look, going well with the various collections and industrial atmosphere.
When Alex let me know that Mike Wolfe is on the March 2013 cover of Nashville LifeStyles Magazine, and that our cushions were shown too (on page 40-41 to be exact), I was thrilled and just had to share them with you.
So, our cushions have hit the Big Time! What do you think? Huh?
