We just received some wonderful pictures from local boutique NOLAJane of a few of our reclaimed heart pine tables they won at our auction last year, looking lively and hard at work in their new home.
These tables are variants of our standard farm and café tables. They're both made from reclaimed antique heart pine beams and boards, dated to the 19th century. The café table is embellished with antique painted Victorian porch wood. These are some of our more popular designs, as they're quite simple while aesthetically pleasing: just up a block and across the street you can find their cousins, a few café tables and a large farm table at Back In The Day Bakery.
NOLAJane presents to the neighborhood home and lifestyle goods as well as books and clothing, hand-curated by husband and wife Nicholas Witchel, a SCAD graphic design student, and Jenny Jaquillard, a SCAD staff member. From industrial lamps to garden herb- and legume-scented candles, jeans and beach blankets, their stock adds variety to what was once a nearly empty block. They have worked hard to take advantage of the relative freedom to create in developing Savannah, which seems teeming with more possibility each year.
For us in Savannah (and likely any other newly-popularized, historic city), small businesses and new, personable developments create a thriving community full of opportunities for local students, artists, and workers, and entice new transplants from other cities. NOLAJane is an earlier arrival in the new and thriving Starland District, next door to the wonderful reclaimed art supply store properly called Starlandia, and its presence has inspired movement into a once-neglected part of the greater historic district. It's important for us at Southern Pine Company to help promote the growth of Savannah, so providing tables like these is close to our heart.
If you find yourself on Bull St. headed to Victory, do stop by and say hi to them while having a look at their store! I fondly remember, and recommend (if they didn't all sell out!) the radish-scented candle I found last year. It worked wonders. You can also find NOLAJane on Facebook and Instagram.
