12-15ish Days of Christmas Sale

We were talking the other day about how cool it would be to have a deal everyday in December leading up to Christmas. We had this conversation on November the 28th. We said ” We should have a really great deal everyday!” 24 deals! Later in the day someone said “Wait, we aren’t opened on Sunday.” So our total went down to 21. 21 days of deals! Then some whiner (I won’t mention any names) said ” Saturday is really busy. We don’t have time to post a sale and answer all the calls.” Okay, so now we are down to 17 days of sale….okay, that’s still pretty good, considering our more traditional “Deal of the Week” is actually  “The Deal of Every Month And A Half  Or So”.

Well, we all went home, had a Thanksgiving dinner or two, AND leftovers and came back with tryptophan poisoning from too much turkey. We sort of lost our motivation.  The 1st and 2nd went by…. and a weekend, and now we are looking at 15 days of Christmas deals, but 12 Days of Christmas sounds so much more iconic. So, I’m saying 12 – 15 days, because it sounds better and we will be able to miss a couple and no one can complain because the name of the sale is charmingly vague.

So, here’s our first deal. It’s actually something we had on our Instagram sale. I know, it’s kind of like regifting, but there you go. This is a pair of slipper chairs, meaning armless chairs. They are slipcovered in a really cool washable stripe cotton- kind of light blue-ish grey and grey on a light background. In fact this material is made in a micro-mill somewhere in Spain. Yes Spain. There is nothing wrong with these chairs except that we ordered too many of this frame – and we just don’t have space. Now, here’s a secret – if you don’t like the fabric, at this price you are coming out so so far ahead that you could order a new slipcover and still be getting a heck of a deal.  So remember that when looking at them. No one bought them on our Instagram sale – so we are going to knock off even more off the price – a lot more. Now please, for the love of Christmas, buy these dang chairs.

Deal of the Week – SOLD

Sorry, it’s sold.

Happy Friday everyone! It’s Deal of the Week time.

Today is a  great day, for you anyway. You see, we had a “designer” who ordered a sofa, an expensive sofa… then the client freaked out and and decided that the best course of action was to dump it back into our laps. Well, we unfortunately took pity on her, and took it back. And now, we are sitting here looking at this thing and we really don’t so much want it. It makes us nervous. Really $7000? Therefore, we want to dump it in your lap! Please take it away. We want to forget this ever happened.

Now for the details. The frame is great – it’s a classic tuxedo style sofa with a bit of tufting – cut and sewn style, if you want the technical term. The seat is a down-filled bench cushion – which means one long seat cushion. I personally love a bench cushion. Typical of our sofas and chairs – it has a hardwood frame, 8-way hand tied springs, and it was made right here in the USA.  A masterpiece by journeymen upholsterers. But here’s the really great thing about it – it’s leather! A soft butter-y smooth leather – which… is the not so  great thing about it. I mean, unless you have no dogs, no cats, no children, no keys sticking out of your pocket or any from of rough-housing and chaos in the room. No horse play on this sofa – It’s kind of a diva. Because, well, it can scratch…pretty easy. And one more thing – the color… it’s called Pistachio….it’s not really green…it’s more of a toffee color, with a touch of a subtle green undertone. So in certain light, say fluorescent, you might draw out the green in a way that is not pretty. But, at this price, I think you could learn to love it.

Deal of the Week

I know, we need to call it the Deal of the Month, or the Deal of the 2 Months, but that’s just not catchy.

Today we are trying to squeeze more furniture into the showroom than the fire marshall will allow, so we need to dump something. We picked the biggest, deepest chair in the store. And really one of the most comfortable – and that’s saying a lot, because you probably know how many comfy chairs we have. It’s slipcovered in a washable fabric. Its large scale, and down wrapped cushion and giant down pillow  make this a curl-up-and-read-a-long-book kind of chair.

About the scale – This chair is a monster – its 36″ wide, and 44″deep. Please make note of the size before you buy this for your 600sf  New York loft apartment. It will fill a space. It’s big. Really. I mean it.

Now let’s discuss the fabric – first, let me say we plopped this chair in the showroom in the spring when we were thinking of summer homes and beach trips. This chair with this fabric belongs in the Hamptons. It’s got the whole coastal Maine/Martha’s Vineyard/ Kennedy Compound kinda vibe. And I really feel like i need to say – it is a dark navy stripe – just in case your monitor or screen reads black. This fabric is New England island, not Riker’s Island. Got it? And I say this all the time when we sell a slipcovered chair – with the deal you are getting, you can order a new cover and still come out ahead.

We are having a sale!!!!

Well, here we are again – our Almost Sorta Semi-Annual We-Are-Tired-of-Stuff/ We-Bought-Too-Much-New-Cool-Stuff-and Are-Out-of-Room Sale.

We’ll work on a catchier name.

Here’s how it went down. We went to the Highpoint International Furniture Market, and well, things got crazy. There’s fast talking, perfectly dressed snooty sales people, lots of bright shiny stuff, and cocktails – a toxic combo to say the least. So here we are now – the trucks have rolled in and our showroom has gone from nicely stocked to bursting at the seams, even the warehouses are stuffed. We can’t even move around here. And so, to alleviate the jam and give us  some breathing room we decided a sale was in order. Dump some stuff we are tired of, get rid of a few mistakes, and clean house so all the new stuff can come out of hiding. And so here is a list of said items ( victims) and an explanation for its ousting.

Wait though, first, while I have your attention, a couple of rules…these are all final sale. We never want to see them again. Ever. Also, no warranties.

original price – $6590   sale price – $2400

I’ll start with the biggest ones. This is a Cisco Brothers sofa. Slipcovered in a natural washable linen, this long (108″), graceful, deep sofa is one of our favorites…..which, in a way, is why it’s here. It seems we ordered one too many of these. So this one has to get the heck out of here.

original price – $7490   sale price – $3990

This is one of our favorite frames of all time. It’s sort of the mascot on the main page on our blog. This is the 10′ version. It is big. Really big. I know you are wondering why we are dumping one of our favorite best sellers…..Well, the truth is, it has some issues. This is the only thing on the sale that is actually not in perfect shape. Its a little dirty – white stuff doesn’t stay perfectly white for long around here, but a good washing can fix that. The more pressing problem is a 1 inch rip on one side…..It could be stitched up or darned, if you know any darners. No deal killers here.  Personally, I could live with it since it means I’d have a long beautiful sofa with squishy down cushions at basically half price….

Here’s a smaller one – Lee Industries calls this an apartment sofa, which means its small scale, not a loveseat…just a small sofa, not terribly deep. An apt name really. It’s slipcovered in a blue cotton, a NOT washable blue cotton.  Down cushioning. Why are we selling it? It’s been here for a bit and we ordered a fresh version.

This is a great frame. A Cisco Brothers wingback-ish chair. Its tall, but has a relatively small footprint considering it’s presence. It’s back sort of hugs you when you sit in it. It’s slipcovered in a cotton blend pinstripe. It found itself on the list because it’s been around a while, although I don’t understand why – it’s perfect. Seems like it is leftover from a pair…you know how we feel about pair-breaking.

This wingback is also the victim of pair breaking, but it’s friend was lost to natural disaster – a storm to be exact. This chair was the survivor – It was left untouched, so it is in great shape and ready to go. We try and keep a pair of these around. And for what it’s worth, they are more of a pretty chair – not so much a comfy chair. Burlap back, cotton/linen front, grey-washed finish legs with casters.

This one is upholstered in a pretty blue linen. It has an exposed frame that’s a driftwood type finish. Pretty, right? No, I hate this chair, but I’m the only one. Everyone else loves it, but I write the blog, so it’s going on the sale. Don’t tell.

This is one of our original creations. A queen size headboard upholstered in one of our vintage hemp rugs. We love this bed. I don’t know why you haven’t bought it yet. It’s so cool. This is for the headboard only, no side rails, footboard or frame.

These are great chairs – for many reasons. Beautiful washable heavy belgian linen covers. The frames are graceful. Beautiful architecture. And these chairs are fully green, not green green, but environment green – the frame and the filling. The problem….the depth and the pitch. Think dental exam. But it’s nothing an extra throw pillow wouldn’t fix.

This is a super comfy swivel chair. Upholstered in a neutral cotton with contrast white piping. We like this chair. But with the white piping we are worried it’s going to get dirty around here if it sits here too long. It already has a smudge or two. We just can’t have nice things.

A classic white slipcovered swivel glider. It has a washable slipcover and is super comfy. It has a grey contrast stitching that keeps it from being too plain. It’s been here a while and it’s white, so we want it out before we have to wash it. We just can’t have nice things. Really.

These are really cool dining chairs. They are upholstered in a grey and black printed linen. It’s a long story. We don’t need to go into details about them. There were many parties involved. But the reality is they are here, and we don’t want them here any longer. We are selling them in pairs. You may buy 2, 4 or all 6.

Someone around here kinda went crazy buying dressers. We have dressers everywhere. Way too many. So, we took a vote and this pair of dressers lost….or won, I’m not sure which. They are a little more modern-ish looking – maybe a modern take on a traditional design. Marble top, bow front. The drawers have a little texture to them.

We have two items in the category – Where In The Heck Did These Things Come From. The first is this gold, tripod lamp. No one remembers ordering it, but we were too lazy to send it back, so here it sits. Please buy it.


original price – $899 each   sale price – $300 each

And here’s the other one – or actually other two. We have a pair of these mirrors that mysteriously appeared at our dock door. No one knows why we have them, and so, we are dumping them. They have a black stain with silver leaf trim. The mirror is nicely antiqued. Please buy them.

Deal of theWeek – SOLD!

Sorry, it sold already.

Guilty as charged…No deals in awhile, but admission is step one.

Today we have two chairs, a pair of chairs, in fact. Kind of a 1950-ish, mid century vibe. I’d call them small scale. They are technically dining chairs, but they pair off well for everyday seating, albeit not for your big brother-in-law. So, dining chairs, office chairs, side chairs – they would fit the bill.

They are upholstered in 100% cotton – in a cappuccino color…. wherein lies the problem, or rather our problem with them…..we usually keep a pair of these around in white vinyl – but we decided to go out on a limb…and…well, we should have stayed on our old limb. It’s not the fabric – we love cotton. And the color is not bad – it’s pretty. It’s neutral. It’s harmless. But it’s not white…and we love white. As for the quality, they are American made, built to last. Ain’t nothing wrong with that.

But enough already. Here’s the deal :




original price – $1167 each   sale price – $500 for the pair!!!


We spoke too soon…


Well, we sorta jumped the gun when we said we’d open tomorrow. This clean-up thing is a little more complicated than we initially thought. I mean, look, we have to use this yellow hose thing. This is hard core. The new plan is to reopen on Friday the 13th…..maybe not the best plan considering our current luck.

We’d like to thank all of our well wishers and cookie bringers. We’ve been getting texts and calls all day. We have the best customers ever!

So, see ya again on Friday…..I think…hope. Otherwise you will be getting another one of these annoying messages.



News Flash

imageSimple Things will be closed today, May 11th. It seems we have a bit of a mess in the showroom due to some storm damage. We are all putting our work clothes on and having a clean-up day. But never fear – We will reopen tomorrow.

We are taking the weekend off!


We are taking full advantage of this long holiday weekend and are spending it with family and friends. We will be back bright and early Monday morning.

Deal of the Week – SOLD!

Sorry, it sold.

Deal #2 this week….We are on a roll!

This time, a slipcovered chair. Swivel chair, no less! This is one of our favorite frames that we featured in a blogpost a while back. (called The Anywhere Chair, for those that want a little light reading this morning.) We like that it’s a small footprint, but it still sits very comfortably, like a full size chair. It has a down blend seat AND back! And on top of all that, it’s a 100% cotton washable slipcover. Birds and flowers included.

Why? Another pair breaking incident. selling the orphan.

dimensions – 32″ wide, 34″ deep



original price – $1590   sale price – $400

Deal of the Week-SOLD!!!

Sorry, it sold already.

Yes, I know it’s been a while. But we hope to make up for it with a three-day Deal of the Week Extravaganza. Meaning we might have more coming this week. Or not.

So, of course there is a long story that we are going to spare you. The short version – Customer buys sofa. Customer goes bonkers. Blah, blah, blah – and we have a sofa.
This sofa needs to go. Their loss, your gain.

We might call this a settee-ish small sofa. Not too deep, not too long. Great for a small space. Or bedroom. Or office. Or apartment.

Bench cushion, down filled, and slip covered in a sublime warm grey linen.
