Deal of the Week – SOLD!!

Sorry, it sold already.

It’s deal of the week time!!

This week we have something a little different. In casual conversation we call it the Eiffel Tower shelf. It’s an all metal shelf, some might call it an etagere, maybe a curio shelf….we’re really not clear on the technical term. We use it behind a sofa in the store, but it would be great against a wall in a little nook, the end of a hallway,  in the kitchen, maybe even a bathroom. It’s a versatile little piece that you can just rotate all over your home.

So why is it being ousted? Honestly, we don’t know. It was the tall guy who stood out when it came time to choose.  There was really no reason. I know that’s not an interesting answer, but there it is. Its heavy and solid.

Deal of the Week

This week we have a deal to make up from the deal last time, which incidentally, we still have. This time it’s something really good, really useful. You are gonna like this one.

It’s a french lingerie chest – If you don’t know what that is, it’s a tall skinny dresser. It has a pretty chippy white finish with a little grey peeking through. It has 4 drawers with nice looking hardware. You could use it as intended, or for just about anything.

Why are we getting rid of this? Well, a while back one of the legs broke off due to a funny and painful accident – long story short, Callan (former warehouse guy that we miss terribly) and this dresser got into a little bit of a fight. And despite the fact that the dresser lost one of it’s back legs, it was definitely the victor. Callan now suffers from a severe phobia of dressers with no hope of recovery. As for the structural integrity of the dresser – it survived and was rehabilitated. We reattached the leg with great success and this thing should stand tall for a long time. And the repair is so well done (thanks to Jonny) that you can’t even see it – and since it’s a back leg it would be pretty discreet if you could. And it promises not to attack anyone else. Good as new. We promise.

Simple Gifts

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. We strung up lights. We put up our tree. And now it’s time to stock the shelves with gifts. Last year we played it pretty safe. We had recently opened the new store and we took the easy road and skipped the whole gift table thing. But this time around we are a little more relaxed, a little more comfortable in the new place that isn’t so new anymore. We decided to gather up some things, things you don’t see just anyplace. Some things you will only see here.

So without further adieu and further rambling, I give you the Simple Things gift guide :

Deal of the Week

Well, have we got something great this week. But, take heed, you deal-of-the-week readers that don’t read carefully to the end. There is an important caveat at the end of this eloquently written post.

This week – dining chairs. Leather dining chairs – 10 of them. We are selling them in pairs – so buy one pair, two pair, three pair, etc. Got it? Now for the details, and there is some fantastic detailing here – legs and frame are fully wrapped in aged cognac leather, antiqued brass rivets, and a slightly pitched back that gives the chair a nice line. Its a great looking chair. And now for the kicker – the comfort….. in the words of the great William Shakespeare, “Aye, there’s the rub.” *

The comfort level of this chair on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the greatest, is in the vicinity of a strong 1 – or at least almost 1. Did you get that? 1 = not so good.

This is the perfect chair in these following circumstances:

  • for a unused dining area in a bachelor pad
  • to tuck in a corner for the sake of it’s exceptional beauty
  • to use as rarely used, yet handsome side chairs
  • to offer to an unwelcome guest
  • as a chair for a person who believes strongly in the philosophy of “form over function”
  • as a time-out chair for an unruly child
  • for someone who likes the prickly sensation of one’s legs falling asleep from a highly un-ergonomic chair.

Bottom line : This is an uncomfortable chair.

Sorry we missed last week, sometimes the day gets away from us. To make it up to you, we decided to “deal” something pretty cool. This is not something we have had long nor is it something that we are trying to unload. It was next to the counter. We were lazy.

Today’s deal is an ottoman! We haven’t done that in a while. It is a round tufted leather – a really nice leather. Really nice. Italian. It’s purse soft. The color is called “manchester taupe”.  Fancy, huh? It’s a light-ish neutral taupe. You could almost call it a warm grey. In other words, a perfect color. It’s the perfect size for a coffee table at 36″round and perfect height – 18″. I’ll leave it up to you to come up with a great use.

This is a good one. Hurry! Call!

Deal of the Week! SOLD!!

Sorry, it sold….already. A minute and a half.

Rugs.

Vintage.Faded.Worn.Flat.

You know our obsession.

Our understanding of supply/demand economics failed….epically, as we have huge inbound shipments of rugs that will squash us. A lot of rugs – I told you we were obsessed.

So we begin to make room – and as luck would have it for you, we are starting with a great rug. This one is everything we love about our rugs:  subtle soft pinks. muted browns. allover pattern, and a universal size. It’s 100% wool, so it’s tough as nails. Put this anywhere – it just works.

We are selling it cheap to create goodwill amongst the internet gods….and maybe buy a customer for life.

Dimensions – 6’5″ x 9’4″

Deal of the Week! SOLD!

This is one of those things that when we first met it we were in love. It’s got a creamy white distressed base – we love that kinda thing. A 2″ thick well worn maple top – perfect! A great size. Infinitely versatile – a sofa table, a small kitchen island, a TV holding thing, an entry table – sky’s the limit. And this thing is heavy and rock solid – so if you are the type of person that takes to dancing on your tables – this table, though small for a dance floor, is quite up to the challenge. It has some great detailing that you can only find on old things – heavy metal braces on the legs, holes that supported tools or something handy that we wouldn’t know how to use if it were still there.

So, why are we not feeling the love anymore? We really have no excuse because it’s just a great table. But we have been looking at it for a while now and you know from past deals that we grow weary of stuff. It’s sat near our entrance greeting countless customers for several weeks, so you’ve probably walked right past it yourself. Anyway we decided, yesterday evening actually, that we were ready to part ways with this table. It’s not a nasty break-up, but an amicable end. Your gain….our….. well, gain.

Deal of the Week!! SOLD!!!

SOLD – less than one minute!

The rules! :

1. First paying customer gets it. By phone or in person ( 817-332-1772. Call. It’s best to call.)
2. No holds. None. We just can’t.
3. No returns. We never want to see this thing again. ever.

So, put aside the fact that I originally stated that we would only deal-of-the-week non-damaged goods. Have you done it yet? Okay, this week we have something damaged. It happens.

This was an expensive custom order apartment size sofa. For reasons that are complicated – the buyer immediately changed to a slipcovered linen version. We said it was complicated.

But first the leather story. Imagine a vintage old leather bag that Steve Mcqueen might be seen throwing in the back of his convertible for a weekend escapade. Soft. Supple. Textural. Has the look of age old leather. Rare. Expensive. Imported.

Now, back to us. We then put this expensive hunk of cow onto the floor and it rained soon thereafter. The leak dripped right down onto the sofa, right smack onto one of the seat cushions. And it being some serious cool non-sealed leather and all, well, let’s just say it left it’s mark. This is not a small stain, but it is a relatively discreet stain, noticeable in certain light and by a more type-A personality. But we like things just so, we decided to try and repair it. We googled “get a rain stain off a nubuck sofa” – well, this had me on my knees scrubbing the stain with a piece of bread. Yes, you heard me right. We read that a good bread-scrubbing would knock that stain right out. I mean, it was on the internet, so it must be true, right?……not so much. The next solution was down-right diabolical – “Let’s stain the whole thing!” we said. So we dragged out all the cushion covers and literally hosed them down. No dice. Nope – hosing was not the ticket. And then, we, being short in the attention span department and the patience department, gave up.

So, we offer you this leather sofa. Really nice leather – buffalo leather (that’s the animal, not the city). This sofa is a great size. It’s a smaller scale frame so it can be used a lot of places. The cushions are spring filled down – that means strong and soft and made to last. This is a great sofa…. i mean except for the water stain part.

I think the right person will embrace the stain as character.

Or maybe this person is relieved that the first stain has ALREADY HAPPENED and so the sleeping slobbering dog or unfortunate peanut butter sandwich incident doesn’t really matter anymore. Fear be gone!

And even better, you’d have a great piece of furniture that comes readymade with a great story. What more could you ask for?

Saturday hours….this Saturday.

IMG_4164-1

Hey there all you Saturday shoppers. We’ve got some important news for you. This Saturday, October 18th, we will be closed. We are all going to be off on a shopping excursion, so there’ll be no one left to man the shop. Hopefully this won’t cause any inconvenience, and hopefully in a few weeks you’ll get to see some cool new stuff in our showroom.

Don’t worry. We will open back up at 10:00am on Monday morning. And our Saturday hours will return to normal next Saturday.
