Talk about a baby shower from French heaven! NYC Planner Tracy Taylor Ward and her mother Lauri Ward designed this incredible French baby shower at Upper Crust in NYC that was just featured in Martha Stewart Living (!!!!). We normally don’t offer vintage furniture rentals NYC since we are based in Washington DC but she saw our pieces at the Claire Pettibone runway show in NYC and was set on having them for her big fete, so we made it happen! Her design using our neutral colored French collection was totally spot on. I loved EVERYTHING about this etheral shower!!

We were excited for many of our upholstered pieces with natural wood frames to make their debut at Tracy’s shower. We go to great lengths to hand-sand and refinish these tufted beauties to give them a fresh lease on life—not to mention reupholstering them in fresh, plush fabrics. Check out our new Madeline chairs, Harper tufted sofa, Peggy Sue end table and our Natural Farm table with turned legs below.  These are pieces that were a labor of love to bring back to life, but we think it was totally worth it, don’t you??


So excited for our Natural Farm Table to shine here!  You really can’t beat its texture in photos or in person!  No glossy lacquer here.  Each one of these tables is handmade from reclaimed wood.  As you probably know, we are obsessed!

Tracy also used our vintage china and vintage tea cups for her guests. We love this look of this on our white washed round tables and on our natural farm tables!


To match the Natural farm tables, we built these custom natural bars with antiqued mirrors on them.  We have similar bars we constructed in gray, but wanted something that fit with the cohesive, amazing look of this shower.

A big congrats on Tracy and little Miss Carrigan!  I love this pic of the parents to be–so sweet.


Hot mama!  I’m 34 weeks preggo right now and I can tell you that I definitely do not look anything like Tracy did here!  How stunning is she??!
