Our client is a retired English Teacher who has become a massage therapist. He moved into his parents home to care for his father during his last years. By the time his father passed in 2001, his mother needed end-of-life care. She passed last July. Our client is going to move to the Big Island of Hawaii. So besides not being able to take anything from his parents’ home, he can’t really take too many of his own things either. Except for personal items, the cost to ship to the islands exceeds any benefit one might gain.
His parents had a strong affinity for Asian culture, customs and art. As a result, they lived in Taiwan for several years during the early 1970’s. During that time, his father commissioned a master carver to make their furniture. These pieces were created by hand: no electrical power was used. They include a spectacular entertainment center (with four matching speaker cabinets) the likes of which we have never seen anywhere before. Also, their dining room table, 2 leaves with skirts, a set of six chairs (two of which have arms) and a china/buffet cabinet. All hand carved in Teak in the early 70’s. Remarkable!
The minute you enter this home, you will feel the quiet tranquility. It is lovely, well-appointed, and full of treasures. No ‘big box’ stores are represented here.
