Jubilee Furniture weekly update post for Thursday, April 30, 2015

Hello! Welcome to the last day of April AND the Jubilee Furniture blog where each week we show you some of the new-to-us furniture that’s in our inventory.

As many of you know, the blog isn’t the only online place where you can checkout our furniture – we also have our Furniture Gallery.

As nice, and convenient, as it is to see photos online – it’s always lovely to touch a piece of furniture and so we invite you to come into the store (730 E. North Ave. Carol Stream 60188) today from 1 to 8, tomorrow also from 1 to 8 and Saturday from 9 to 4.

But let’s start our virtual tour!

WOW – beautiful pedestal table with glass top – LOVE the design and colors of the pedestal! Priced $145. The four chairs around it are very nice (might want to change out the seat fabric but that’s not a big deal). Priced $100 for all four

Man alive – I LOVE these two blue velvet side chairs! Give ‘em a good vacuuming and they’ll be good as new! Priced $55 each

JFC 04-30-15 017JFC 04-30-15 018

we have a wonderful design/pricing team (who I’ll introduce you to next week) who are a wealth of knowledge about furniture and they labeled this piece as a Martha Washington sewing cabinet (it’s a storage piece and, obviously, a reproduction). The three drawers open and the top of the curved side pieces open too. Really sweet. Priced $65

JFC 04-30-15 019JFC 04-30-15 020

AMAZING Lane brand black leather small sofa or loveseat in excellent condition and…BOTH SIDES RECLINE! I tried it out (both sides) and it’s fantastic and very comfortable! Priced $425

JFC 04-30-15 021JFC 04-30-15 022

Ethan Allen retro green velvet wingback chair – needs to be cleaned and there are some minor issues with the velvet (which happens over time). But isn’t that color fabulous?! Priced $45

JFC 04-30-15 023JFC 04-30-15 024

nice floral camelback sofa in good condition. Priced $75

JFC 04-30-15 025JFC 04-30-15 026

another lovely camelback sofa – from John M. Smith’s Signature Collection – also in good condition. I love the un-skirted look of camelback sofas as well as the single seat cushion and one piece back. No adjusting ever needed! It always looks good! Priced $85

JFC 04-30-15 027JFC 04-30-15 028

I have some FABULOUS dressers to show you – starting with this retro dresser by Kroehler – in good condition and priced $65

JFC 04-30-15 029JFC 04-30-15 030

JFC 04-30-15 037JFC 04-30-15 038JFC 04-30-15 039

this Sterling House three drawer dresser is made of all solid woods (maple and cherry). Needs to be cleaned up a bit – but overall in wonderful condition! Priced ONLY $55 (my shadow in the second photo makes me look like a 9’ tall monster! Yikes!)

JFC 04-30-15 040JFC 04-30-15 041

antique dresser – really cool – priced $195

JFC 04-30-15 042JFC 04-30-15 043JFC 04-30-15 044JFC 04-30-15 045

there’s something about this gold and cream colored round pedestal coffee table that I think is amazing! In good condition and will add a bit of glam to any room! Priced $45

JFC 04-30-15 050JFC 04-30-15 051

this wine/storage cabinet is built in that – sorta – primitive style but it also needs some TLC (one of the drawer fronts is warped and I couldn’t open the door at the bottom). Priced $55

JFC 04-30-15 052JFC 04-30-15 053JFC 04-30-15 054JFC 04-30-15 055

FANTASTIC Thomasville dining table with two leaves and six chairs (two with arms) in very good condition – built in 1966! Priced $265 for the whole thing!

on the bottom of the same chair are these two labels: one from the Fancher Furniture Co. and one from Paramount Furniture Co. I know Fancher primarily built chairs and shipped them to other manufacturers – so maybe that’s what happened? Regardless, this is an amazing set! Includes: a gorgeous drop leaf table w/two leaves and EIGHT chairs (two with arms). Yes, it needs some minor cleaning/wood cover up. Yes, the chair seats need to be re-covered. But – on my goodness – this is a beauty! Priced $225

I hear it’s going to be a beautiful spring weekend and I hope you, dear reader, enjoy every moment of it (you know, once all the laundry, grocery shopping and cleaning are done. Ha! Can you guess what I’ll be doing?).
