New & Cool Stuff

Everyday when I walk through our showroom, I’m constantly amazed at the changeover in inventory.  We spend a lot of time shopping the markets, meeting with new vendors, and looking under every rock in the furniture industry to find new products to bring to our customers.

Every day a mountain of boxes of arrive at the back door.  While we are chiseling away at unpacking, tagging and displaying, just as many items are being carried off to happy homes through the front doors.  Comfortable shoes have become a standard.

I’m often asked by friends and acquaintances “what’s new?”  As soon as I hear those two words, my brain goes into overload and usually the best response I can give is “you should come check it out.”  There is just too much cool stuff that passes through the store on a given day to isolate anything in particular.

So today I decided to take a brisk walk around and spot a few things that I thought were a little more unique.  I think I will try to do this every month or so for those of you who don’t get a chance to visit our store as often as you’d like.  This week, I thought I’d pick out some accessories that make great gifts…especially for yourself.   If you have any interest in any of them, give the store a call and we’ll help you out.

And if you happen to be the lucky winner of my blog contest, you could end up getting them for free.  Just subscribe and then post a comment on any posting.  The month is flying by….

  1. I see here that fire burner again. Is this a desktop piece? Can’t image what that green “thing” might be. A topiary? Looks alot like a post I once had, covered in carpet, for my cat to claw.
