We spoke too soon…

IMG_2102

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

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.

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.

Deal of the Week – SOLD!!!

Sorry it’s sold already.

Okay, it’s Deal of the Week time!

Today, once again, we have a deal that is primarily the work of what we call “a pair breaker”. We tend to buy in pairs because we feel strongly about, well, pairs. A pair of lamps, a pair of pillows, a pair of chairs. We advocate this practice to the point of obsession. I know, it’s a sickness, but we haven’t found a psychiatrist that will see all of us as a group – mainly because psychiatrists can recognize when there’s no hope.

I digress.

Anyway, this particular pair-breaker left us with a really great looking chair. Artfully designed, great neutral grey fabric upholstered onto an exposed frame of grey-washed wood. Now, those of you that know the term “form over function” will understand when I say this chair is a classic example of that theory. This is a chair made for its looks. I don’t mean it’s uncomfortable, I just mean comfort is not its purpose. It’s soft, it has a nice pitch. But mainly, it’s pretty. It’s a side chair, a guest chair, a fireside, a bedroom chair. This is not the chair you sit in to binge watch Breaking Bad. You don’t sit in it to read Moby Dick from start to finish. This is for short term sitting.

I say all of this with general warmth and love for this chair.

SOLD! Day 3 – Black Wednesday A.K.A. Deal of the Week

Sorry, it’s sold.

And now for the grand finale of our Thanksgiving Deals-of-the-week. We are posting this one early in the day because we will be closing today at 3pm. However, this is a really good one, so I bet it won’t last a full minute before it sells.

This was a mistake. We like this frame – it’s simple, classic with a tight back (meaning no back cushion). We like a swivel glider. We like how comfortable it is. We like this fabric – this very white fabric. But herein lies the problem. This chair is upholstered. Upholstered – meaning not slipcovered.

White. Upholstered. Chair.

Don’t touch it, don’t breathe on it, don’t look at it. But please, for the love of God, buy it before we get it dirty.

Oh wait, there’s a smudge on the skirt already. Call now. Hurry.
