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.

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.

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.

original price – $1590   sale – $799

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.

original price – $1690   sale price – $799

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

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

Did I mention, it’s best to call??

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.

Deal of the Week – SOLD!!

Sorry, it sold already.

So, I know I told you that we were getting a big bunch of vintage rugs in soon. These rugs take up a pretty good amount of space when they land – it’s always a chore trying to find the floorspace that we are willing to devote to them. There’s usually a debate, some finger-pointing, you know how it is… Anyway, we finally picked a spot…..except for this one thing…and it’s a big thing. So that thing is our Deal this week. It’s big, and it’s in my way, and I want it out of here as soon as possible.

This thing is a kitchen island-y, work table-ish kind of a thing. I could see it smack in the middle of a kitchen or in a craft/art/sewing room. It’s a white farmhouse style piece. At least 40 drawers, not really.  – 15 drawers, 2 cabinets and a couple of shallow open shelves. The top is natural wood. And this thing is heavy. Really heavy. Is there anything wrong with it? Do we hate it? No, and No. It’s great,  but now it is in our way, and it has worn out it’s welcome.

But please, look at these dimensions. Before you commit to it, you should ponder the size. I mean, don’t dwell on it all day or anything, it will sell by then. I’m putting the dimensions in bold type so you will have to read them.

DIMENSIONS – 71″W, 32″D, 36″H

Deal of the Week! SOLD!!!

Sorry, it sold already.

I know. You’re shocked. A Deal of the Week two weeks in a row. We really are trying.

This week is kind of exciting. First because of what we are unloading, and second because of the implications of what we are unloading.

First the deal – one of our vintage rugs!! This rarely happens. We love and cherish our rugs and we don’t like parting with them. They have each been lovingly hand-picked. This one is no exception…mostly. Okay, well, it’s not our favorite anymore. We’ve had it for quite a while, so though it is pretty, we are kind of tired of having it around. It’s kind of like a 30 year old child still living in your basement. You love them, it’s been a pleasure living with them for so long, but when you’re honest with yourself, you really are ready for them to move on….

This rug is a good size – small room sized. It has a good pattern. It has fantastic, beautiful wear. Something we love to see on an old rug. It has muted colors, but it’s not a neutral for sure. The most prominent colors are an olive-y green, a dusty coral-ish sorta pink-but-not-too-pink color, and a warm coffee-with-cream kinda color. I took Color Theory in college – these color names are so advanced they were not even covered. That’s right folks, you are witnessing PhD level color naming.

Now what does the ousting of this rug mean? Well, it’s very exciting! Rug day is coming!!! We just returned from our bi-annual-ish vintage rug buying trip, so our store is getting a rather large supply of old rugs very soon! Anyway, we need to make some room. So out with the old, and in with…well,…the old.

Deal of the Week – SOLD!!!

Sorry, it sold already.

Time for the Deal of the Week…..on a Monday. I know, we are getting crazy over here! We are starting to realize that Fridays are just too jam-packed with other stuff, we just can’t seem to fit the Deal in anymore. And the thing is, we always have stuff we want to get rid of.

In honor of our first Monday deal of the week, we decided to let go of something pretty great. This is a leather wingback-ish chair. It has some fantastic detailing – tack trim, tufted leather, burlap back, casters. The chair has a really graceful profile as well. Yeah, we really like this chair. It’s a nice looking chair. In fact, we have ordered these many times. We always order them in pairs….I know what you are asking…Is this the result of a “pair-breaker”? Why, yes, it is. Someone marched in here and just wanted one. One of a pair. You know who you are. We have a wall in the back where we hang pictures of “pair-breakers”. Not really.

I guess you should all be glad about this pair-breaking phenomenon, since so often you benefit from it. And I guess making you happy should make us feel all warm inside. Not really.

Oh, and one caveat – this is not the most comfortable chair, nor is it the most remarkable quality…It’s not the chair you buy as your sit-around-in-all-day-Sunday chair. It’s more of a chair that you pull up as an extra seat…maybe for someone that you don’t want to linger. But you wouldn’t feel guilty about sitting said person in this chair because it’s so good looking.

Anyway, buy this chair. It’s pretty handsome. Use it next to a sofa, in an office, tuck it in a corner – it’s very versatile. But by all means, buy it. It’s lonely. And looking at it makes us bitter.
