Tambour Door Console

  Tambour Door Console

Found in an industrial company that is moving to the suburbs, this incredible 8' console has been in the same executive office since 1952.  Smart, stylish and functional, this piece is made of walnut, and the tambour door works perfectly.  Opens fully, to reveal lot's of storage space. A true gem.  Found only at Scout.  We had two, now there is one.   

8' x 18" x 30"

Fricks Reed Company Maple Tuxedo Chairs

 A stunning pair of Fricks Reed Company Maple Tuxedo Chairs, reborn with black leather - all new foam, wrapped in muslin with smart piping and small details only found on important chairs.  New webbing underneath and a commitment to making these 1940's chairs come alive.  Probably in our top three of smart club chairs we've been fortunate enough to call our own. 


Hand-Made Square Wreaths

                                          Very Scout-like Square Holiday Wreath

Enter TroyBerndt, whom we have been looking for an opportunity to do something with since our first meeting.  Troy has an eye and a way with anything and everything floral - and, he lives up in God's Country - around Neenah Wisconsin.  Troy makes each wreath by hand, carefully selecting the local greens personally, and taking the time to do what machines do for other "store-bought" wreaths.  On the Saturday following Thanksgiving, we'll have our first shipment of these special wreaths - 40 of them!  You can order yours now, and we'll put aside a boxed wreath.  Pick it up whenever it is convenient or maybe we'll try and give you some holiday cheer by delivering it to your home or office, while we're out on other "scouting" missions. 

           24" x 24" hand-made square wreath from the Plantsmen of Neenah Wisconsin 

                                                         Price: $95

Regency Style Side Chairs

Another pair of Regency style side chairs, perfect for additional seating this holiday.  Found in a preview of a Winnetka house sale, we snagged them and completely rebuilt them: new springs, coils, and all the insides - wrapped in a dark smokey grey cotton velvet.  With "just so" attention to detail we've come to expect from our partner upholsterers - Comfort Upholstery lead by David Arevalo and his team of experts - especially his wonderful parents.  Thanks gang for making our chairs and sofas come back so wonderful.  You always make us look better than we thought we'd look!
