I was reading an interview of Mary McDonald by Raina Cox on Curbed National and learned that Mary was selling stuff from her own collection on One King's Lane. On Million Dollar Decorators we saw Martyn Lawrence-Bullard and Kathryn Ireland go on shopping trips to London and Morocco to make selections for their own One King's Lane sale, but how fun that this selection of items comes from her own collection of furnishings.
Here are some my own picks from her sale:
Federal chest, $1389
Pair of tufted armchairs, $2749
Sleigh bed, $1499
19th C. whitewashed prayer chair, $979
19th Century American Walnut Occasional Table. $299
Many of the items are from her warehouse. They may be items that were purchased for a client and just didn't work or plans were changed. Others were from Mary's own home.
The leopard sofa seen in the lead photo...
...seen here in Mary's own library was for sale.
I love the collection of engravings on the leopard print wall. Notice how the leopard print on the chair is perfectly aligned with the print on the wall. It's almost invisible!
Even Mary's own drapes from the library were for sale for $399.

If you could have the drapes, what would you do with them?
Hang them as is?
Make a dress?
Upholster a chair?
Make a bunch of pillows and sell them on etsy?
They're tacky. Throw them away?
Roll on them naked?
Let me know your ideas!!
The sale runs until Tuesday at 8:00 a.m. Get your own piece of Mary McDonald while you can.
