Tables are now in the shop

Two Regency-style tables are now in my shop in Caledonia. The first is a large rectangular banqueting table that can sit six to ten people, the second is a smaller round table suitable for four places. Remember that most Blue Mars shelves display all merchandise in a 1-metre cube, so these items will look considerably smaller than they will appear when you place them at home. The larger table is over three metres long and the round table has a diameter of 1.68 metres.

All furniture has been upgraded

Working with Blue Mars is most definitely a learning process - a fact that has been emphasised all over again while working with cabinetry. I admit to having been learning on the job. Since first releasing the items of furniture listed below, I've found ways to make them better. If you have already purchased one or more of them, please contact me so that I may provide you with replacements. Note that I have included the mark of each item. If your items have a lower mark then you should upgrade to these ones.

  • Regency Chest of Drawers Mk II  -  more realistic materials, and the ability to place other objects on top of it
  • Early 19th Century French Writing Desk in Cherry Wood Mk VI  -  corrected scaling, more realistic materials, and the ability to place other objects on top of it
  • Regency Chair Elegant Black-Gold Mk IV  -  more realistic materials, and the ability to place other objects on top of it (though how this will look I do not know)
  • Regency Chair Sturdy Blue-Gold Mk IV  -  more realistic materials, and the ability to place other objects on top of it (though how this will look I do not know)
  • Victorian Hatstand in Cherry Wood Mk V  -  more realistic materials, and the ability to place other objects on top of it (though how this will look I do not know)

I am keeping my fingers crossed that these versions will be final.

A range of period furniture

Today, in parallel with the unveiling of the new shop, I am releasing a range of Regency period furniture - just the sort of thing that might have been found in Victorian times, too. First, two sabre-legged chairs featuring the distinctive striped upholstery of the Regency, one elegant, the other sturdy. You can try both of them before you buy; 'live' examples are near the main door of the shop.

Next, a writing desk with cabriole legs, and a matching chest.

And also now in the shop, a bentwood hatstand and a memento mori for a gentleman's desk.
