There are 2 Taos daybeds, one in leather and one in lovely white fabric.  A pair of Stickley arm chairs in solid cherry and leather that are so comfortable and well carried for as they were prized possessions.  A Baldwin grand piano, a Heritage dining table in the mid century modern Sketchbook line and a set of late 1700's Chippendale dining chairs are part of the furnishings that are not moving.  There is also a custom metal daybed and trundle by Charles Rogers of NYC.
