Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-07,Lethbridge, Alberta 14-THE LETHBRIDGf HERALD - Monday, January 7, 1974 Designers rebuild antique furniture By MARILYN HOFFMAN Chrittian Science Monitor ‘You wouldn’t exactly term us ‘trendy,' says Hugh Boyer, young president of Hickory Chair Company, “since most of our styles were determined several hundred years ago. And we've never felt we need really improve on them very much.” Mr. Boyer runs this old-line, Southern company founded in 1917 (but now a part of the SlOO million dollar Lane Company conglomerate), with a healthy respect for time-tested traditional design. "We couldn’t really care less," he says, “about developments in plastics and avant-garde designers. Nor do we feel traditional furniture has to be old-fogey in presentation and lacking in current color and dramatic flair “I find the constant search for good new pieces to WINNERS of Uw Friendship Lodg« Tea and Bazaar Raffle Mrs.E.McKlnni .....$25.00 Mi» S.

Hipp1«r .......CakB reproduce pretty exciting,” he continues, and explains how he and liis designer poke through the antique shops of England, do research in London’s Victoria and Alberta Museum, and visit such historic Eastern seaboard cities as Savannah, Ga., and Charleston, S.C., looking for nuiiable pieces to add to the company’s James River Collection of authentic — though sometimes adapted — 18th-century English designs. This collection, first introduced in 1961, is stronger — and longer — now than it ever has been. Each year its sales volume grows. “We are convinced that fully as many young people decide for traditional these days, as for new-technology modem,” says Mr. Boyer. “Many of them are buying such reproductions in lieu of the antiques they would like and cannot afford, or mixing our reproductions with the antiques they can afford, as well as with contemporary sofas and chairs and occasional pieces, and modern accessories." Last year, this enterprising company had built m the Hickory showrooms, actual and believable rooms, based on the livmg styles of known people With showroom designer James Daggett, he made sure the rooms introduced the latest colors and fabrics and wallpaper patterns, modem rugs, and a few chrome and glass tables. He even used shiny chrome lamps and silver mylar window shades, for a little glamour. “We don’t really expect to change very much as far as style is concerned,” explains Mr. Boyer. “We would feel happy to stay exactly where we are, because we feel that Is where the market and the potential is. We feel there will always be a steady demand for good traditional furniture. It is a staple in today’s home furnishings world.” Why? “Because people want those qualities of design that have stood the test otf many generations, and yet in form and scale are completely com-patable with modem living. The dominant English styles of the 18th century — Queen Anne, Chippendale, Hepple-white, and Sheraton have the lines and proportions that are satisfying to many tastes.” EARLY MINING Coal in Nova Scotia and iron ore m Quebec were first mined in the 17th and 18th cen-tunes- Hickory’s adaptation of Queen Anne and Hepplewhite EATON'S janudry Act now and enjoy complete stereo home entertainment at a low, low price.

He’s no lady FAMILY HES RM BRADFORD, England (CP) — A woman dressed in black wig, scarf, coat and fashionable shoes was watching proceedings in court when six policemen swooped and arrested her. It turned out the woman really was Edward Davis, i9, who escaped from a Liverpool prison last September. He’d come to see a pal due to app«ar before the court. By BARBARA L. MYTROEN District Home Economist In Training Now that the holiday season is coming to a close, perhaps it’s time to take out those party clothes and examine them for stains. It’s best to remove any soil spots immediately, but if you didn’t, be sure to do it before th^*re really set. Her« are some guidelines for stain removal tidcen from the Alberta agriculture publication, "Spot and Stan Removal.” GREASY STAINS On washable fabrics, pretreat spot with liquid detergent and launder; if any stain remains when fabric has dried; sponge with cleaning fluid and use an appropriate bleach on any remaining yellow stain. On unwashable fabrics, sponge with cleaning fluid and allow fabric to dry, repeating as required; if safe for fabric, use an appropriate bleach to remove any remaining yellow stain; and for some stains and fabrics absorbent powder may be the best choice. NON-GREASY STAINS On washable fabrics, laundering may set stain so pretreat before laundering; sponge or rinse in cool water; work in liquid detergent and rinse; and use an appropriate bleach on any remaining stain. On unwashable fabrics, fabrics that waterspot should be taken to a dry cleaner; if safe for fabric, sponge with cool water; if some stain remains, work in liquid detergent and rinse; a final sponging with alcohol helps to remove the detergent and the fabric dries faster. (Before using alcohol on a fabric, test to see if th& color will be affected. Dilute the alcohol with two parts water if it is to t)e used on acetate); and an appropriate bleach may be re-quircf. COMBINATION OR UNKNOWN STAINS On washable and unwashable fabrics, combination stains are those that contain both' greasy and non-greasy portions (e.g. gravy, cream sauce, etc.); do not use this method on unwashables that waterspot. Such garments should be taken to a reliable dry cleaner; sponge or rinse with cool water to remove the non-greasy portion; work in detergent and rise and allow fabric to dry; if greasy stain remains; sponge with cleaning fluid and let fabric dry repeating if necessary; and if colored -stain remains, use an appropriate bleach.
