AMERICAN Pickers’ Mike Wolfe has put his unique touch on a loft to provide fans with an amazing vacation experience.
Das Amerikanische Pflücker star opened the custom holiday space in 2019 in Columbia, Tennessee after falling in love with town’s transportation history.
The second floor, one-bedroom loft has a custom sliding barn door features a green couch with a pull-out sofa.
It is also packed with unique decor Mike spent years collecting from sheds and barns around the country.
“Some people may not know, but for the past 30 Jahre, I have been selling to designers and decorators,” Mike said about deciding to open the accommodation.
“It has been a major part of my business. This is the first time that I’ve been able to utilize that experience inside my own space for other people to enjoy.
Er fügte hinzu: “I’m on the road six months out of the year. I check-in to a lot of hotels and Airbnbs, so I understand what travelers need when they’re looking to relax after a long day in a space that feels like home. This entire project is all about creating an experience not just for a few hours in Columbia, but for a long weekend.”
Found in a historic building dating back to 1857, the original 13-foot windows in the living room show off Columbia’s courthouse across the street.
The foyer entrance leads into a hallway decorated with a wooden windmill blade and framed vintage motorcycle attire from Mike’s collection.
The loft has plenty of ‘Instagrammable’ pieces, including a mint green 1951 Vespa, a model of RCA’s dog Nipper, a giant fire eater circus banner and 130-year-old wooden bicycles hung like art.
“We were in California picking for about a month finding vintage Navajo style rugs, worn leather goods, original cowboy paintings, und mehr,” he told Antique Archaeology.
“Looking at the pieces in the back of the van, it hit me — this is the inspiration for the Two Lanes Guesthouse. It just seemed fitting to include the spirit of exploring the wild frontier in this space.
“I wanted it to represent the grit and passion one needs to chase down the road ahead, whether it’s through the mountains of the west or down a country back road.”
The open space features sporadic pieces of exposed bricks on the wall a renovated kitchen with a black marble kitchen island which also serves as a dining space.
A rusty cafe sign repurposed serves as overhead lighting and decor above the kitchen island.
The modern bathroom comes with one-of-a-kind concrete and iron vanity and even vintage inspired, custom ‘Two Lanes’ hand soap.
Mike recently confirmed Frank Fritz was NOT returning to the show after the pair got into a feud.
Alongside a photo of Mike and Frank sitting with co-star Danielle Colby on Instagram, Mike wrote: „Ich kenne Frank seit ich denken kann, er war wie ein Bruder für mich. Die Reise, die Frank, Dani and I started back in 2009, wie das ganze Leben, ist gekommen mit seinen Höhen und Tiefen, Segen und Herausforderungen, aber es war auch das lohnendste.
„Die Unterstützung, die Sie uns alle gegeben haben, war eine ständige Erinnerung daran, was die Botschaft der Show immer war; durch diese Orte, Menschen, und Dinge, die wir alle gemeinsam haben. We’re here to not only take care of the past, but also each other.”
Mike concluded: „Ich werde Frank vermissen“, genau wie ihr alle, und ich bete um das Allerbeste und alles Gute für ihn auf dem nächsten Teil seiner Reise.“
Frank joined the cast of American Pickers in 2010, aber sein Abwesenheit seit anderthalb Jahren ist scheinbar unbemerkt geblieben.
Trotz ihrer jahrzehntelangen Co-Gastgeber-Beziehung, Frank previously told The Sun that he hasn’t spoken to Mike in two years.
The Iowa native never reached out to check on his co-star post-surgery after a Geschichte, nicht auf Augenhöhe zu sehen.
Frank hat kürzlich gesagt, dass er gerne zur Show zurückkehren würde, obwohl eine Quelle erzählte TMZ Das producers have no plans in place for his reappearance.
zusätzlich, an insider claimed to The Sun that he believes Mike wants to replace him with his brother Robbie.
