March at Last
How did the pioneers make it through winter? We have electricity, heat and tv and when I look out the window on this first day of spring and all I see is snow falling it just makes me want to cry. Where is my fortitude? Fortunately my forebears were made of stronger stuff. I will just have to look inward.
Which honestly, thanks to three major shipments this month, looks pretty darn good. First came the upholstered couches and chairs: They are made by Hickory White, an American company with over 100 years experience in the furniture industry. With over 700 fabrics to choose from and a number of seat, arm and skirting options we can basically offer a bespoke sofa for a big box store price...What we show here is the two seater couch in navy linen with white piping which pairs nicely with a striped club chair with a navy welt and a box pleat skirt.
Then we did a three seater couch in a khaki blend with an English arm and no skirt and a smattering of nailheads. Two side chairs with waterfall skirts and no welting for a slightly more contemporary vibe complete the ensemble. All in all I think we nailed it. Crisp, clean, coastal, classic, and cool. What more can you ask for?
The turn around time is about six weeks and the hardwood frames are guaranteed for 45 years. Oh, I forgot to mention comfort. The spring down cushions are crazy soft when you sit but then, when you get up they bounce back into shape...no more fluffing. Come in and sit for yourself. These are amazing.
The day after the chairs and couches arrived we unloaded a shipment of furniture from a supplier who imports a wide range of products. We got in end tables, side tables, cupboards and coffee tables in every finish from dark walnut to greige. Check this out:
And then finally, on Friday March 13, our new shipment of antique and reproduction pine furniture from Hungary arrived and life was good. Now if it would only stop snowing.
