One of the many great attributes of which the Bonanza can boast is uber-talented vendors, and extremely satisfied customers!
We wanted to share the story of these pieces — a music-themed desk and lamp — for a customer of Lee
and Tracie Anderson
‘s. They own Histories
, a business where they create vintage industrial repurposed furniture, lighting and home accessories.
Debi Beall of Bloomington saw one of Lee’s custom pieces during the Fall 2013 Bonanza, and simply fell in love. She commissioned these pieces, and the pair collaborated via email throughout the winter to arrive at these amazing pieces. using parts “purchased from other vendors at the Bonanza,” Lee noted.
“My grandfather was a music professor in Washington D.C.,” Debi said, “and my father was a concert pianist. So music is important to me.”
Among the amazing touches in these pieces:
*parts from a cymbal and flute keys on the lamp
* a clock face set to 2:06, to commemorate the morning birth of Beall’s daughter, Jillayne.
* piano pedals at the bottom of the desk.
These pieces, destined for Beall’s writing room, pleased her greatly. “They are just amazing,” she said.
