White Decor Inspiration, a Pale Palette and European Antiques
“Jocelyn Sinauer is fascinated by the history of things, and has a high regard and curiosity for their previous owners and provenance. As a child Jocie would dig up treasures in the woods and set up pretend shops with her friends. Raised in a family that appreciated antiques, weekend outings were often spent at auction houses. Her grandmother collected found objects for her work as a collage artist and interior decorator, and taught Jocie to find the beauty in them. This love for vintage and antiques lured Jocie away from her life in the Boston area as an illustrator and graphic designer to open the first Red Chair in Peterborough, NH. In 2010, after 14 years in New Hampshire, Jocie and her chef husband, David Chicane, moved to Hudson.” ~Red Chair on Warren
Antique Shop: Red Chair on Warren
“This antique shopping mecca provided them both with the ideal location to accommodate Jocie’s expanding business and for David to open his Asian influenced restaurant, Food Studio. Red Chair is mainly filled with 17th, 18th and 19th Century French, Belgian and Swedish antiques. Jocie is noted for the wonderful assortment of white ironstone, French linen and silver flatware she sources. Her current passion is for 18th Century glassware; used in cafes, bars and restaurants for coffee, beer and wine, she marvels how it has withstood the test of time. Her work means she is constantly traveling. David accompanies on major trips to Europe, in the South of France and Belgium. She attends markets in the US, such as Brimfield, and savors her weekly car journeys to local destinations in search of treasures. As Jocie surveys the shop she is amazed that she has personally found everything, and it is obvious that she holds dear every single item.” ~Red Chair on Warren
“Established in 1997 with a concentration in Swedish, Belgian and French antiques. Red Chair provides a cool palette of greys, blues and whites with a focus on original surfaces. Owner Jocie Sinauer makes frequent buying trips to Europe and hand selects every item in the shop. Jocie’s discerning eye and imagination provide a space full of exquisite finds with a focus on 17th, 18th & 19th century finds. ” ~Red Chair on Warren

I just added a petite industrial style work table to my own kitchen, and there are so many possibilities online! Here are some favorites, and you can always give it a custom paint job, distress and antique it, or skirt it as seen in the kitchen above.
I love the idea of storing cookbooks on this work table’s shelf (above). This one’s a fav.
Undeniably Charming Kitchen!
Even new dining chairs like these can be customized and distressed.

Sinauer told DesignSponge:
“Although our home is architecturally a fairly simple farmhouse, I love the openness between spaces and the abundance of natural light that floods our home year round. The neutral color pallet that we’ve chosen mixed with textural linens, clean-lined European antiques and natural artifacts proved to be a good recipe. I like that our home is easy to be in, warm and inviting with a sense of calm. I am surrounded by things that I love and that is really what a home should be.”
“My husband found these chairs at our dump! They’ve been freshly slip-covered in 19th century french linen sheets. The swing lamps are Pottery Barn lending a bit of modern industrial edge.” ~Jocie Sinauer

Farmhouse Living Room Addition
“The living room is an addition we added about 6 years ago, with the belief that it’s nearly impossible to live in southern New Hampshire without a toasty, cozy fireplace. Note the wide opening between the original house and the new addition. We were happy that we connected the two to create a sense of openness throughout these spaces.” ~Jocie Sinauer via DesignSponge
