One Kings Lane Sneak Peek

My one kings lane sale is finally upon us this week, folks.  First off the date has changed to September 20th (at 6pm) instead of the 18th, Sorry, i was wrong. So you have a few more days to save your pennies, get your friends opinions, sell your pets. etc.  I was looking at the prices today and am kinda worried that i underpriced things, but that’s good for all of you guys.  Don’t get me wrong, i’m not giving it away but there are a lot of affordable things to buy and i probably didn’t mark things up enough. I have SUCH respect now for store owners. It’s all such a risk, but i think it will be worth it.  

So here are some more sneak peeks of some of my favorite pieces.  

And some lampage. I’m dying to keep that first top left brass lamp, i am.  It’s just so good.  But the chrome dome? Stop it.  And that yellow mid-century lamp is awesome. Oh and so is that thin brass squared off piece.  ALL. OF. THEM.

I want everything.  EVERYTHING.  Please help me and my hoarding problem…..

You have no idea how hard it is to give up those brass trunk side tables and the green freshly upholstered sofa.   Plus that amazing blue velvet 1970’s sofa.  I tried and tried to convince Brian to trade out this sofa for ours, but he strangely loves ours (and i do, too) so no go on that end. The burl coffee table is from my studio and it will always be nastalgic for me.  So hard to let go.  Wood beaded curtains….stop. 

I kinda want to interview each person before they buy to make sure that these are truly appreciated. Perhaps you could all send me photos of these pieces in your house after you buy and recieve them? Oh yes, i can frame them, create a photo album of them and these pieces will forever be immortalized.  

Unless i decide to track you down, camp outside your house and stalk the pieces, making sure you appreciate them as they should be appreciated.

    You are just the nicest, sweetest person ever. I can't believe you changed the date just for me? I'd like to think so:) You made my night. Just got into Denver and I've been stalking the OKL site for the preview and trying to come up with excuses for how I'm going to need to step out of the meeting tomorrow so I could go shop your OKL sale. I saw this post and I gotta admit, I almost cried for joy. I am so happy that the sale is on the 20th. I land in Boston at 5am on the 20th and will be home in plenty of time to get ready for your sale. I will most certainly send you pics and promise to love each item as much as you loved it, maybe even more because they were items that you personally curated and since I pretty much idolize you I will idolize the items I purchase from your sale:)

    Obviously you love your object-babies. You should make people fill out adoption applications. lol.

    I would love love love to own so many of these items, but I'm afraid I'll have to wait until your next hoarding crisis happens as that I have not a penny to spend this month in my bank account! :-(

  4. Oh those gold chests! Im dying! They are so gorgeous!

  5. Sarah

    Pretty sure that with OKL prices, whoever buys them will appreciate them. The spouse might be a little resentful though…

    Oooh – the green sofa is so amazing! Can't wait til Thursday!

  7. Carrie

    I NEED that yellow lamp for my living room in my new (to me) c. 1959 house!!!!

  8. I really, REALLY dig that brass crawfish thing.

  9. Sarah

    Loving those lamps! For the sale, is it 6PM EST?

  10. I'm so upset–One Kings Lane doesn't ship to Alaska, so I'm doomed to not benefit from your sale!!! Wah.

    I've been looking for a coffee table like that one for a while now. I have a curved sofa so a rectangular coffee table obviously isn't working, but an oval shape feels too matchy-matchy, like a puzzle piece. This would be PERFECT. Fingers crossed that I can afford it! Or at least something! :)

    So lovely.
    Can't wait to see your OKL sale.
    I too have a serious hoarding problem.
    I just come across things that are too good to pass up but I don't need.
    Scolari cage chandelier, a sputnik, several significant MCM sofas and chairs.
    All plucked from estate sales at time capsule homes.
    I may attempt to sell at Brimfield this year.
    I just have to get over the logistical fear of loading and unloading a truck and driving cross-country..
    Good luck with your sale. I can't wait to see your stuff!
