Florida Fall Furniture Trends

An interesting annual Phenomenon occurring in Florida (and many Southern States) is known as Migration… As the weather begins to cool off in the northern sections of the country, the ‘Snowbirds’ begin packing those suitcases for the trek south to their 6 month home here in the Sunshine State. Tales of days and nights spent in warmth, on beaches sipping Mai Tais and Margaritas urges more Northerners to pack their bags and move South permanently, bringing with them the furnishings best suited for those cold climates.
This inspires Fall Cleaning, similar to Spring Cleaning with devastating effects in regards to solid wood furniture! Many people opt to trade in or throw out their rich hardwoods of mahogany, oak, walnut and cherry for wicker, rattan and <gasp!> p.v.c. pieces!

I say Let ‘em! I’ll be along in an hour or two to pick those babies out of the road heap and lovingly restore them. That is unless some other sharp-eyed hawk doesn’t beat me to them first! You see, there is a not-so-underground society of people here in the Sarasota area that scours the county looking for these treasures and they come from all walks of life. We love our bargains especially when free!

There are two choices after rescue: Strip and Refinish yourself OR Deliver to a Good Craftsman to do the job for you. Either way, for a couple of hundred dollars, it’ll be better than anything you can buy at a Big Box Store and last for generations as a gift to your children, their children, and so on. Start a tradition of reading a bedtime story or special Holiday story in it, etc. Recover it every ten years and have the padding refreshed for comfort. It’s an investment for a lifetime!
