Staff Pick of the Week: The Jenna Awards

Did you catch any of the Academy Awards show this past weekend? I love Oscar time of year… the gowns and tuxes, the jewelry, the hairstyles and of course, the awards…so glamorous, so fun! There is something special about a room full of people who are at the top of their field, seeking acknowledgement for a job well done! Well, how about a little awards ceremony of our own, Phantastic Phinds style? (BTW, I didn’t consult with my fellow co-workers, this one was all me…sorry Angela!)

BEST WOOD AWARD: This category had the most nominees; probably well over 100, from dressers to armoires to hand made benches. It was hard for this judge to choose a winner. But keep in mind; I am a TRUE fan of rustic! AND THE WINNER IS: Vintage Quarter Sawn Oak Table w/ Japanesque Brass Accents!!

This table is simply gorgeous as is, but it has a hidden feature that I’d like to share….it opens up to 1XX”! Talk about a banquet table! Although it does NOT come with leaves, in its former life, it had many. With a little ingenuity, you can make new leaves and have an Oscar party for 12 at your house next year! Congratulations to my favorite table of the year! Square as you may be now, you have potential for greatness later!

BEST FURNITURE ACCESSORY: This is the category that neither fits into furniture nor small wares. But sometimes the nominees can fit into both categories. Sometimes they can be both decorative AND serviceable. My winner is indeed both! AND THE WINNER IS: Vintage Black Painted Coat Rack Stand!

This piece is sleek and unassuming. It can play many roles in a home including in an entrance way, a bedroom or a bath. Hooray for the supportive Coat Rack, what would our jackets do without you?

BEST SERVING PIECE: This was another category that took hours for this judge to decide on a winner. With so many beautiful items in the store to help make a dinner table special, I chose an item that was beautiful both on and off the stage. AND THE WINNER IS: Vintage Hand Painted Porcelain Japanese Relish Tray in a Hand Painted Box!

First, I loved the box, then the gifts kept giving--I opened it to find a gorgeous serving plate inside! Not just another pretty face! Someone will serve you and store you in style!

BEST SEATING: Oh how I wish my job as judge was easy, but for this category, I had to walk around the store and sit down in SO MANY CHAIRS! It was quite exhausting with so many choices, but I finally selected one that stood out from all the rest. AND THE WINNER IS: The Victorian Carved Wood Upholstered Settee Sofa!

I saved the best award for last. This beauty comes to us with many stories to tell. It can be used in a sitting room, parlor, a living room, or even in a large entrance way. It’s simply beautiful with great lines and a very comfy seat. And how pretty she looks for her age! Congratulations to a job well done, settee!

Thank you all for joining us! Congrats to all of the winners in tonight’s abbreviated ceremony! Please visit our website where you can find descriptions, dimensions and prices of all the nominees in our store! See you soon, Jenna
