CAFE AU LAIT

We discovered these chairs from a source in Toronto this year and I have to say they are beautifully made with a soft bleached out finish. They remind us of Parisian cafes where you can sit and linger over coffee and a croissant and watch the world go by. Pair these with our South Shore or Oxford Harvest tables. Priced at $195 each.

DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH


One of our favorite things to do here at Henhouse is hunt for unique finds. We got just that chance last week when we hit the road and traveled down to the South Shore and picked up quite a few diamonds in the rough. We especially love finding dilapidated and neglected pieces, fixing them up, discovering hidden patina and letting them shine again. Pair these unique pieces with something contemporary and you really will have the design “tension” that is in all the magazines. We’ve spent all week sanding, hammering, nailing, stripping, and waxing these diamonds to sparkling perfection. Stay tuned for the finished results.

SOUTH SHORE PERFECTION



When we named this furniture line “South Shore”, it brought to mind images of family cottages that are dotted around our beautiful coastline right here in Nova Scotia. These cottages are homes that have been passed down or have been built to resemble that passed down look. Hence this furniture line embodies that by having the classic lines and worn in perfection that will stand the test of time and can be passed down to future generations.


SSBH 60″w x 20″d x 38″h $2715.00 painted in Chelsea Gray with Forrest Floor trim detail. Select from a variety of colours that compliment your cottage or home and we will make you your version of a South Shore piece.

BUFFET ANYONE?





Referred to as a buffet, console, or sideboard this type of piece is so versatile in any home. Put it in your dining room to store family heirlooms, in a living room with a great piece of modern art above, or in a grand hallway welcoming visitors and instantly putting them at ease. This piece has been a labour of love, featuring a new design for us, with the breakfront design and hand painted in that golden creamy colour that can easily be paired with any colour scheme you have going on in your house. The top has rough hewn boards that have been sanded by hand and the whole piece has finished in bees wax polish, giving it that juicy look that we all love here at henhouse.


We are referring to this new design as the MacAskill Sideboard, on our floor now priced at $3210.00.
