Last day of One Kings Lane sale … also Veronica Mars is back

In case you are blind from my pestering or deaf from my rants, my One King Lane tastemaker sale started on Wednesday and ends tomorrow (Saturday) morning.

Or maybe you just simply don’t check my blog everyday, or perhaps you’ve been too busy pledging money toward the kickstarter campaign to make the Veronica Mars movie, in which case, you, LIKE ME, have extremely good taste in TV shows, and are a god damn genius in general. They raised 3.2 million in one day because fans, like me, crave that movie THAT bad.

Run, don’t walk to your local Netflix and start watching season one, episode one. Or come to my house and borrow one of my two copies of the entire series. I mean, I get crazy Nurse Betty about this show. The characters are real to me, the location is a real place, the love a real emotion … the death of the show — a. REAL. crime.

BUT, again, in case you have been distracted by thoughts of Veronica and Logan hate-loving each other, I wanted to highlight some of my favorite pieces from my sale that are still available. Most of the smaller items sold out, true, but these beauties are still for sale (as of 7pm 3/14).

upholstered vintage furniture

Every room needs a statement piece, and these above pieces are statements. Put them in your house and look effing cool. Don’t and don’t.

1. Aqua linen, lucite, and brass chairs. I can’t wait to keep these for my office. I only have 100 percent love for these mothers.

2. 1980’s club chairs. Oh the lines, the comfort, the luscious navy velvet … if i didn’t have my leather chairs, these would be mine.

3.  This bench is probably going to a client if it doesn’t sell. It fits perfect at the end of a king -sized bed.

4. My wingback that has graced so many blogs. I love it, which is why I listed it for so high. It’s worth a lot to me, emotionally.

5. Um, the most incredible brass based, peacock blue linen chairs. Could be for the living room, office, or king-like dining chairs.

6. Stop. These hot pink club chairs aren’t for everyone, but they are for someone VERY special.

7. These Ming chairs started as black, gloss and cheesy, but with good lines and bones. And ended up as bright, eclectic, and interesting — totally one of a kind and weird … in a good way. I upholstered them in Hmong wedding blanket that is $100 a yard. Totally, 100 percent interesting and beautiful.

8. These bedroom chairs are perfect at the end of a bed, or anywhere really. Perfect, soft, high quality velvet — all newly reupholstered, obviously.

9. My headboard from my guestroom. I decided that my guestroom should be storage so it is being sold, but she is a great headboard, and custom made by yours truly.

10. 1980’s Italian club chair, reupholstered in peacock blue velvet. It’s deep, comfortable, and so beautiful. Love this chair.



Or maybe mid-century is more your style in which case get these above pieces:

1. Oh, just a Paul McCobb desk that I had white lacquered because the wood wasn’t that awesome. Get it. Now.

2. Huge, caramel, worn, leather 1970’s lounge chair. Save this for me.

3. I can’t believe this day bed hasn’t gone yet. It keeps going in peoples “carts” but triggers are hard to pull. This piece is awesome, pull that trigger.

4. Vintage Thonet chairs. Classic.

5. Bright tangerine fabric, bentwood wood frame.

6. Because you always need more ottomans in your life.

7. Have office, will travel.

8. Mies Van der Rohe chrome and leather chair. I mean, it’s awesome, but if  you don’t appreciate it, I certainly will.

No. 9 and No. 10 are currently in my foyer. They are both simple and beautiful, and if you buy them I’ll be happy, but if you don’t I’ll still be happy because I love them.

So here’s a behind the scenes video of my One Kings Lane sale, by Tessa Neustadt. Thanks, Tessa. You are awesome.

And in case you need one more link, my sale is HERE.

  1. I can’t believe how much I love the shape and shade of pink those chairs are. I wish I had more house for new furniture :(…more money might also help. The navy velvet is also the perfect navy ever.

  2. Tracy

    VMARS FOREVER! I am an insane person about this show. Amazing sale! If I didn’t already have 20 chairs in my 2 BR apartment, I would get the bentwood chair and hot pink pair in a heartbeat. But … 20 chairs in 1000 square feet. Perhaps I am just an insane person generally? I’ll have to be content with my awesome painting.

  3. Sara

    Just wondering if you could share the font you used for “must haves” in the mid century section? I’m on the hunt for calligraphic fonts to use for my wedding Save the Date postcards. Thanks! Love everything up for sale, but with a recently merged home, we runneth over and are in major spring cleaning rather than shopping mode, sadly.

  4. Susan

    I’m loving the headboard! Really wish I had a place for it in our house. Great sale!

  5. Another reason for Mid-Century Must-Have #5 – it’s a Knoll classic. If I didn’t already have 6, I would buy it!

  6. Jessi

    the sale is ridiculously good. i can’t believe these pieces are still around. i want midcentury #3 soso bad! love the video and the Icona Pop song!

  7. Kimberly

    I would love those 80’s club chairs so hard that they’d never be lonely and I’d give the ming chairs the best home in the world but I still can’t afford the price of either of them. However, I fret not, you have taught us oh so very well about purchasing furniture from thrift stores or flea markets and then using a quality upholsterer to have the pieces refinished. You’ve also taught us about fabrics to use and where to purchase. So even though I can’t afford your pieces (which I totally die for) I just have to hit up the Elephants Trunk (opens this Sunday for the first time this season) and search for something with really great bones that I can then take to Tiger Lilys to have upholstered:)

  8. Jenna

    I have been a faithful reader of your blog for a couple of years but have never commented…until today. I knew that you were a pretty awesome person, but your cred has gone up dramatically since I read this post about VMars…I LOVE this show and feel like a movie is the only answer…I mean did Keith win the election???
    You have a reader for life now.

    • Emily

      Its so funny, how it takes random thing to really relate to someone. I’m so happy you did. Its on, my friend, Jenna. can they possibly live up to our expectations? probably not, but i’ll enjoy them trying whilst Logan says crazy snarky things and veronica is the bad ass that i want to be.

  9. Jacy

    Definitely love these pieces! Wish I had a lovely place for them!

    I don’t think Keith Mars won.

  10. anne

    So I’m a regular reader of this blog, and when I saw the news about VM, my first thought was, “Oh, Emily Henderson will be so pumped!” And I must say…I am ecstatic too. God, I love that show.

  11. anne

    And…love all those pieces, also, but am never sure how to mix genres/periods. I live in an old Victorian (in Oregon:)…midcentury just never seems to fit. Maybe someday you can do a tutorial on how to mix it up with pieces from different time periods?

  12. VERONICA MARS!!!!! YES!!! I seriously cried I was so excited watching the video on the Kickstarter page last night, knowing that it’s going to happen. I have the biggest girl crush ever on Kristen Bell.

    Maybe they’ll do another one for a Party Down movie next??? Ok, I’m going to watch the video of KB crying about her birthday sloth now.

    • Emily

      i literally feel elated everytime i think of the move coming out. my expectations are dangerously high. But the wanting is better than the not wanting. xx

  13. Deirdre*

    LOVE everything in the sale. Unfortunately not even close to ‘in my budget’. Boo

  14. Woohoo for V Mars!!!! I contributed in the first couple of hours and then had to sit and watch that total go up and up. slowed down a lot, but we’re gonna get a great movie. So happy to know that my favorite designer also loves one of my favorite shows.

  15. Wow, Emily, you have given me new faith in OKL curated sales. I was beginning to think they just recycled a bunch of the stuff that wasn’t selling and slapped somebody’s name on it. Great choices!

  16. Kara

    I wish you would open your own online store, and not just thru One Kings Lane! I love just about everything you post.

  17. so hopelessly in love with those lucite/aqua chairs and so, so sad i missed the one kings lane sale to get them. my timing is terrible! i have to admit, i’m new to this blog and just spent probably the last two hours admiring it… i’m totally inspired by your aesthetic emily! so, thanks for being awesome, even though i can’t nab those chairs anymore :-)
