We wish you a Merry Christmas!

IMG_5795It’s been a spectacular holiday season at the Michael Taylor Company, and we wanted to take a moment to thank our wonderful customers, clients and friends for your business in 2016! We couldn’t do it without you, and wish you all the very best for a happy holiday and time with friends and family.

We’ve got a special surprise coming up next week, so watch our Facebook pages and/or your email for more information…shh, details are still a secret, but I will let you know now that it’s a HUGE sale with the biggest and best giveaways and deals we’ve ever offered. And if you’ve been shopping with us for awhile, you know that’s saying something! You simply won’t want to miss it, so be sure to follow us there in the upcoming week. We’re going to have a lot of fun with this one!

In the spirit of the season,

Michael Taylor and Company

‘Tis the Season for Holiday Decor & More!

IMG_5633 (1)Holiday season is here and it’s time to deck the halls! We’ve got some fun ideas for getting into the spirit of the season, even if you’re short on time and budget.

  1. Set a festive table! Get out the Christmas china, festive glassware and crystal. It’s time to enjoy using your “special” dinnerware…why not even for simple family meals? ‘Tis the season! We frequently feature holiday-themed dinnerware at our estate sales, so if you’re lacking that special Santa mug, check our weekly listings…we might have just what you’re looking for! WIJT6994
  2. Indulge in nostalgia and special memories. Everyone has a few vintage holiday ornaments or decorative items that bring back the past…share the story behind the vintage Santa with a new generation. LIMI3505
  3. Get out those fun seasonal collections and holiday displays! It’s a lot of work to set up the Christmas village or to decorate the tree, but isn’t it worth it? It’s the time of year for over-the-top decorating…enjoy every minute! We love this village set up in an old china cabinet…don’t the lights make it special?

    4. Wear a festive outfit…it doesn’t have to be a Christmas sweater! (Although we think those are pretty fun!) If you haven’t been to the “Vintage Boutique” at Michael Taylor at home, you can find this retro ladies suit and lots more fun holiday garb at great prices…what are you waiting for?IMG_5565

And if you’re looking for food and friends, we’ve got a special holiday event coming up on Dec. 11 from 1-5 p.m. at Michael Taylor At Home…it’s our holiday open house, and we’d love to see you there! We’ve got prize drawings, refreshments and special deals…bring a friend and come say hello. IMG_5547

It’s a busy month, but we hope to see you at our sales and our open house…our customers are very special to us and we truly appreciate your business!

My best this holiday season,

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!).

IMG_3977

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
