Old time tennis racquets are de rigueur these days with the stylish set. Used in fashion shoots and photography creatives, there is something about the weathered wood against the crisp and classic white, blue and red logos that is beautifully captured in photos. But fashion folks aren’t the only ones loving vintage racquets. A recent blog post by blogger Heather Clawson at HABITUALLY CHIC sums it up nicely for folks like me. We want the racquet for our front hall decorating, it is the new answer to the ubiquitous rubber Wellington boot. Casually placed at our front doors, the wooden raquets imply a kind of life so few have time to enjoy. Just think how nice it would be to put on your tennis whites, collect your racquet and balls and head out for a quick game at the club. For some reason I can’t get the image of Ali MacGraw playing tennis in Goodbye, Columbus out of my head. Youthful, healthful, sporty and elegant at the same time.

And luckily we have been scoring some racquets for FOUND that are perfect for your front hall. That is if I can part with them long enough to sell them.

And check this out, racquets as art, another great idea.
