February is almost here and that means one thing…finding that perfect gift for the special someone in your life. If your sweetheart is tired of the same old candy and flowers, why not try something unique and different? We’ve got a huge assortment of gift items throughout our gallery at Michael Taylor At Home for men and women…drop by and see!

We’ve got name-brand men’s watches from Yema and Invicta, and ladies estate jewelry…all at sale prices. Our estate jewelry collection of fine and costume jewelry has something for everyone–whether your taste is contemporary or vintage, casual or dressy.  Look for men’s cufflinks and pocket knives, as well.

Men are notoriously hard to buy for…how about a cool metal sign or piece of western-themed art? Or for that truly special gift, we’ve got this amazing vintage pool table, red tag priced at $1,350!

For the ladies…we have unique pottery and porcelain pieces, a fun mixed-media mirror or this beautiful wicker breakfast tray…just to name a few things.

Roses are a tradition on Valentine’s day, but why not interpret this gift in a new way with a gorgeous decor piece that will last forever? This original oil painting by local artist Tim Liddle is sure to please your sweetheart.

Still not sure what to get? Feel free to ask gallery manager Jerry for ideas and suggestions! We’re open Thurs-Sat., 10-5 each week and are happy to help. We’ve got new midcentury decor pieces in store this week, as well as the best/most unique assortment of vintage and contemporary lighting fixtures we’ve had in awhile. AND…we’re still featuring fine furniture pieces from the downsizing sale of local Nashville broadcaster, Charlie Chase–gorgeous stuff, you really have to see it in person!

My best,

Michael Taylor & Co.

Michael Taylor At Home: Sneak preview of our Gallery update!

IMG_3995

Our 9,000 sq ft retail gallery, Michael Taylor At Home, is closed this week for restocking, so it seems like the perfect time to give you a sneak peek of the awesome new stuff that we’ve added to our “modern mix” of fine furniture, antiques, one-of-a-kind vintage finds, artwork and more. If you haven’t been out to our gallery, it’s conveniently located at 478 Allied Drive, 37211, and our normal hours are Thurs.-Sat., 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Bamboo style furniture is “having a moment” in popular decorating right now; these two occasional chairs are a great example. The hand-knotted oriental rug is one of many in our gallery–we have a large selection of wool and silk oriental rugs in an assortment of shapes, sizes and colors (and at a price that won’t break the bank!). The jade statue is one of several high-quality antique jade pieces that are a gallery feature.

Have a collection you need to display? This dark antique display case would make a dramatic backdrop for bright Fiestaware dishes, or treasured family photos. The antique dolls are just a sampling from an extensive collection we’ve taken on consignment. I think we can say with confidence that we have one of Tennessee’s largest antique doll collections for sale in our Gallery right now; check out the photos on our website for a preview of these special dolls.

The ’70’s are back with this awesome lucite bar chair set. These are absolutely amazing…very Saturday Night Fever!

Here’s another 1970’s-era set that we just love. The soft green tones of the painted wood of this dining room set are gorgeous. We’ve featured ruby glass in the china cabinet, but blue and white china would be pretty, as well. LKRF6240

Have y’all met our glamorous gallery ladies? Well, be sure to drop by and say hey to the best-dressed gals in town. We offer a curated selection of vintage gowns and furs in the Gallery–only the very best of the best from names like Lillie Rubin.  Stand out at your next charity function or holiday event–these dresses are truly amazing.

We specialize in one-of-a-kind vintage items, and these 1960’s era Colorforms toys can’t be beat. For the toy collector, 1960’s enthusiast or nostalgia buff, these would be a great gift item (and we’re closer to the holidays than you think!).

This carved buffet would add vintage style to holiday meals, events and gatherings…you also get a glimpse here of more of our beautiful hand-loomed rugs.

These items are just a small sampling of what’s new-to-us and in store waiting for you.  If you’re looking for specific pieces or if you’re an interior designer shopping for your clients, please consult with gallery manager Jerry when you visit- he’s got a wealth of ideas and resources for you, and would love to assist you in finding the perfect piece for your collection.

Again, the Michael Taylor At Home Gallery is located at 478 Allied Dr, Nashville and open Thurs.-Sat, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Come see us soon!

My best,

Michael Taylor and Company
