The gentle clatter of past tea parties seems to drift from colorful china cups and saucers on tables worn smooth by years of loving care. At LuLu's Fine Home Furnishings & Consignments, Liz Bradley curates 6,000 square feet of vintage furniture and accessories like these. Her inspiration comes from her great-grandmother LuLu Devaney, who helped her to forge her own aesthetic outlook. The parade of lore-steeped vintage items that passes through the shop has included painted oriental screens, Victorian-era chaise lounges, and classic paintings. In addition to connecting her clients with their dream pieces of furniture and décor, Bradley offers her services as a design consultant to help to add a measure of quirk and easy grace to dining rooms or find a sofa heavy enough to put on a magic carpet that has been grounded. Patrons complement retail excursions with a trip to the popular in-store photo booth which is outfitted with its own collection of pose-worthy props.
