WASHINGTON, DC -- Discover the DC Metro Area’s newest online resource for furniture, décor and art – Hayloft Auctions! Our June auction is filled with exciting property for collecting, decorating and entertaining in the Mid-Atlantic area, and beyond!
Summertime means inviting friends over and sharing some Southern hospitality -- so why not show off your tabletop know-how? A set of Limoges porcelain oyster plates (lot 1) will make the perfect presentation for local Chesapeake Bay oysters on the half shell. Another set of plain white oyster plates comes together with matching asparagus plates, each with a handy well for the Hollandaise sauce (lot 17). Time to drop by your local farmers market!
Having your friends over for tea? A group of four Meissen porcelain teapots (lot 22) allows you to brew English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Oolong and green tea. Let your guests take their choice! Some of your guests may prefer a cold drink on a hot afternoon. A group of glass decanters would make a novel and elegant presentation for sweet tea or lemonade (lot 29). Won't your freshly baked scones look lovely in an elegant KPM porcelain basket (lot 32)! And how about two Herend porcelain pheasants (lot 9) as a centerpiece?
The change of seasons offers an opportunity to breathe new life into your home décor. Even with the longer days, additional lighting is always welcome. A pair of black and gold painted tole table lamps (lot 5) is especially handsome with their trellis pattern decoration. And painted metal sconces decorated with colorful strawberry vines (lot 37) would add a summery touch to a living room, dining room or bedroom.
If extra seating is on your list, a rococo style fruitwood armchair (lot 39) would be stylish painted a tranquil gray -- or perhaps a cheerful sunflower yellow -- with one of the assorted needlework cushions (lot 18).
A charming print by Maine artist Consuelo Eames Hanks (1928-2015) depicts an abandoned, picturesque farmhouse and barn (lot 40). What a perfect addition to any home, whether town or country! Hmmm, I wonder if the barn had a nice hayloft...
