Every January through March Pam and Keith Foster close the doors of The Outpost and travel the World in search of beautiful things.
This Friday, April 4th they will reopen their doors and reveal the one-of-kind (and certain to be extraordinary) inventory they’ve curated from this year’s travel to the UK. Keith and Pam are busily readying the shop for the Spring opening on Friday, but allowed TSG Hunt Country a quick preview of a few of their favorite finds – hold on to your hat, its a wild, wonderful ride!
Victorian Snowy Owls - “We found an amazing source for taxidermy on this trip to the UK, and this is one of our favorite pieces. It is a magnificent pair of Victorian Snowy Owls in a glass case. At 32 inches high, it makes a strong statement and is pure magic.”
The Outpost Chair – “ Ten years ago, we bought a fantastic pair of 1906 Paragon chairs, which are the predecessors of the much later Butterfly chairs and the folding safari chair. They are the perfect combination of classic elegance and timeless style. We’ve been working with our furniture maker in England to make a reproduction that does the originals justice, and we are so happy to introduce The Outpost Chair. The frame is beech with custom-cast brass hardware and fittings; and the seat is a full Italian hide backed with olive green tent canvas. The comfort factor is an eleven on a scale of one to ten.”
Great Old Leather Pieces - “We are known for always having great old leather pieces and this selection is the best ever. Gladstones, postal bags, saddle bags, and much more. All are in impeccable condition.”
English Bamboo Kneehole Desk and Chair – “English bamboo pieces in great condition are getting harder and harder to find and we lucked into a great collection this year. My favorite piece is this very sweet yet practical kneehole desk with four drawers. We also have a great matching chair. It gives a little bit of the exotic to any space.”
Cast Stone Deer - “For the garden or the home, this French cast stone deer is so charming. He still has his original whitewash paint which has aged to a gorgeous patina.”
For the full reveal, be sure to make your way to The Outpost this weekend!
