Unique Antique Velocipede or Tricycle - Horses

This Velocipede or Tricycle is in the French museum:
Union des Arts Decoratifs Musee in Paris
BOO !!! Since Halloween is near I thought I might just startle you a bit......
(Scary little man on a Velocipede or Tricycle !!!)


Some of you ( too many to count) have spaces above your cabinets in the kitchen / family room from the top of the cabinet to the ceiling. Sometimes that space is up to 12 feet.
You need something there, and enough with the fake plants already!

Or other elevated areas that need large accessories. Or even next to a chair in a corner-
Something that is interesting, and I particularly like things that move/function.
One that I find interesting and have used are these little tricycles.

I found this gorgeous piece at an antiques store in Austin Texas. Click on the pic and it will take you to the site. It is a costly piece , but you get the idea and you can pic up little fakes at

'T.J. Max', 'Home Place' etc, etc.
Just Look – you will find it.

This is the type of thing you can find in the discount stores that I mentioned above.

This was in the paper in 1933

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
