Back in November I ordered a few pieces of furniture from Keith Bougourd of Small-Time. Keith makes beautiful clocks, but also wonderful furniture and other small items. Be sure to check out his 'how it is made' page, where you can see a short video from the Discovery Channel showing Keith making one of his clocks.

Yesterday the postman brought me the pieces Keith made for me. I love them! On the photos below you can see an Artist Metamorphic Desk with ivory brush pot, a Charles Voysey Swan Chair and an ivory telescope. Aren't they beautiful?

As a backdrop for the photos I clamped some Arts & Crafts wallpaper against a piece of wood and put a piece of fabric down to act as carpet. The room the furniture will go in eventually is the basement of my first canal house, but I haven't started work on that yet. The beautiful furniture has inspired me to get to work on it though!

  27. Sabiha, de kelder van het grachtenpand (het eerste grachtenpand) is het souterrain achter de stoep en de trap naar de voordeur. De keuken zit ook op die etage. Ik heb nu de inspiratie om dat gedeelte af te maken!

    Jeanette, yes I do feel lucky!

    Catherine, that's what appealed to me as well, it is very different from what you normally see. And it is a metamorphic piece of furniture which always holds an attraction for me.

    Pubdoll, yes I also love Arts & Crafts. The wallpaper is a Morris design, 'Tom Tit'. The paper was printed by L.P. Wholesale products Ltd., Birmingham.

  28. This art desk with pull-out drawer/ easel table-top is absolutely the best piece of miniature furniture I have ever seen bar-none! I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to own it in both miniature scale and life-size! Well done, major score!
