Special New Arrivals at Scout.

This tall and wide steel cabinet with glass doors is unheard of - in other words, we've never seen anything like it and probably won't see one any time soon again.  The size and slim proportion make this a nice option for built-ins or other shelving needs.  The piece can be separated - top and bottom: top measures 72" wide x 21" deep x 38" high, and the bottom measures 72" wide x 21" deep x 82.5" high.


The last of the cream color Eames Chairs with black base

Ted Harris at his best

A pair of optimism - I remember the only time I saw my Mother break down - and I mean really break down - was when she heard Bobby Kennedy was shot.  It remains something that helped define my life.  Makes you wonder, "what if?" 

Ted Harris again.

This Haywood Wakefied dresser was sanded down to the raw wood, and carefully and lovingly refinished by the crew at Furniture Revival.  Thanks Dan and Garth for giving everything you do for Scout a bit of extra loving and care.  It shows and I am so happy you've chosen us to put your time and energy into.  Bravo,

Incredible Chairs!

This pair was split up but it made two people very happy, instead of just one.

Vignette in Grays and Greens

The vintage hand-held score board was a big hit in the store.  It lasted all of 2 hours. 

Vignette in White

Can this handmade pressure gauge make me any happier?  Not possible.

Drinking Glasses

Summer is not too far away, is it?  To keep it fresh in our minds, I keep this set of cocktail glasses in my line of sight.  The 8 glasses, cocktail stirrer, and ice bucket make me smile.

Vignette in Blues

Can this color be any more perfect? 

Scout's finest...

Michael Nicholson's special art makes everything around it look better.  See?
