A Sign of Good Things

Sometimes we like to post something that gives you a little insight into the workings of the store.  We are always cooking up projects around here, and there are a few exciting projects coming. This is the first one we’ve actually checked off the list. I, as always, feel it necessary to set it up a bit. So, here goes.

The other day on Instagram I posted this photo of green paint in a pan along with a cryptic message asking people to guess what we were using such a bright color for. Oh, do you follow us on Instagram? Well, you should.


Anyway, the plan was to, later that day, post the completed “green project”. Well, around here things don’t always go exactly as planned…pretty much ever.  So, a week and a half later, when the Instagram post was long forgotten,…we finally have a finished product. So, here you go – a new sign, freshly stuck onto our building. AND it’s green!


And a bonus! Here’s a time lapse video we made of the painting process, mainly because we learned how to use the time lapse feature on the phone and we are pleased as punch about it.

This new sign, turns out, is a sign of things to come this summer. New stuff. New projects. New ideas.

Stay tuned….


Deal of the Week – SOLD!

Sorry, it sold.

It’s Deal of the Week time again! And I think we should be congratulated on remembering to have a Deal two weeks in a row. To celebrate this huge accomplishment and because we are feeling really happy today we are selling off something quite great.

This is a beautiful slipcovered chair from Cisco Brothers. It has a washable linen cover in a light weight natural linen. It is a simple, clean, classic frame – put it anywhere, put it with anything – it’s a chameleon. It can be friends with pretty much any furniture or any room. Oh, and it’s comfy.

But wait. This is important. If you don’t like wrinkle-y relaxed linen (and if you don’t, you’re dead wrong) you should really walk away from this deal. Really. It will wrinkle no matter what. I mean, come on, it’s linen. Type A buyers beware!

Dimensions – 38″ wide, 38″ deep, 31″ high





original price – $2490   sale – $600!!!

And here are the rules :

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.

And one more thing, while I have your attention I need to let you all know that We will be closed this holiday weekend in observance of Memorial Day – Saturday thru Monday. We will reopen on Tuesday morning at 10am. We hope you enjoy your weekend!


Deal of the Week – SOLD

Sold in less than a minute!

Well, it’s been a while, huh? Let me first tell you who to thank for this. Actually two different blog readers emailed us asking us why the blog has been so quiet. What I’m saying is, we pander to fan mail. So, without further ado, I bring you the Deal of the Week.

We are big fans of pairs – pairs of lamps, pairs of bedside tables, pairs of chairs. However, not everyone respects the sanctity of the pair. I’m not bad-mouthing anybody. Sometimes there’s not space for a pair of things. Sometimes a single is what’s called for. This week’s deal is the work of what we like to call a pair-breaker. They just needed one. Just one chair. So they left us with a lonely single chair missing it’s twin. I know. Sad, huh? Well, our pain is your gain. We are unloading a Cisco Brothers swivel slipper chair. You know what a slipper chair is, right? Lowish seat, no arms. Anyway, this is a great looking, remarkably comfortable, chair slipcovered in a nice neutral washable linen. Another bonus is the great topstitching detail on the back cushion. I’ll include a photo below. You see, a slipper chair can look rather dull, but Cisco solved this by adding this design to the back. This chair could go any number of places in your home. It’s size makes it very versatile. And I mentioned the swivel, right? We love a swivel! This is a great chair.

Dimensions – 29 wide, 36 deep, 30 high







original price – $1290   sale price – $350

And here are the rules :

1. First paying customer gets it. By phone or in person ( 817-332-1772 . Call. It’s best to call. Really.)

We will be closed today for the holiday weekend. Please come see us next week. We reopen on Monday at 10am. image

Deal of the Week

I want preface this deal of the week post with an important bit of information. And here it is : I completely object to the “Deal-of-the-Weeking” of this item. It goes against all the criteria that we use in choosing a deal.  We originally stated that the deal of the week would rid the store of superfluous tiresome things, or things that are not as perfect as they could be. This is not the case today, and I’m kind of bitter about it.

Is this item ugly? No.

Does this item take up valuable space on our floor? No.

Is this item imperfect in any way? No.

So, I stated my case to the Deal of the Week Council, quite assertively in fact, and said council struck me down. You will have to forgive an pouty-ness in my countenance when describing this item.

It’s an ottoman, a pouf really. It’s upholstered in a washed indigo cotton. It’s tufted with french tufting, no less. It’s brand spanking new to our showroom floor. It’s perfect. In every way. It does not deserve this kind of rejection or ejection from our store.

dimensions (It’s the perfect size too.) 19″ high, 26″ diameter




original price – $699     sale price – $200

If you don’t buy it, you are crazy, and if you don’t hurry and call, I will. 817-332-1772

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.

There’s another Perfect Chair?

Okay, I’m about to go into a full-on furniture geek rant – the good kind of rant. You’ve read similar rants here. Do you remember “The Perfect Chair”?   A post we did a while back? (you can read it here, if you missed it.) Well, this rant is similar because this chair, like the last one,is another amazing chair from Lee Industries. And it really is another perfect chair – but for different reasons. This chair is a solution. An answer to a lot of chair dilemmas. It’s versatility and ability to go into any house, any room, anywhere is where its perfection lies.

Intrigued? Read on.


First of all, and listen up, because this is really great, and a bit of an anomaly in the chair world – this chair is SMALL – more specifically, its footprint is small. But the real genius of this frame is that the seat still sits like a roomy chair. This combination increases the anywhere-ness of this chair by at least one million percent. So, if you have a smaller space to fill, or maybe you want a pair of chairs and want to keep an open feel to your room, well, this is your chair.  It’s small enough to fit into a small space, but its seat is big enough to be remarkably comfortable. So, in essence it’s a small chair with the comfort of a big chair. This is technology at work – the Egyptians building the pyramids kind of innovation. The wheel. Electricity. Slice and bake cookie dough. Historical kind of brilliance.


Okay, and here’s another great thing. It has a style and line that you can plop into any kind of room – traditional, modern, cottage, clean, cluttered. This chair is a chameleon. Hey –  “The Chameleon Chair”? Uh, no. “The Anywhere Chair” ?  That has possibilities.

And now for the bullet point portion of our show :

  • American made
  • 8 way hand-tied springs
  • It comes standard with down-wrapped cushions. This is great. Trust me.
  • It has a subtle curve to the back, which makes it more ergonomic and adds a little grace to its look.
  • It can be ordered as a swivel. We love swivels
  • The upholstered version comes standard with nailhead trim or spit tacks.
  • It can be slipcovered.
  • Comfort. Comfort. Comfort. Did I say comfort?
  • A fantastic scale. Perfect size. I can’t say this enough.

Who is the ideal buyer of this chair? Could it be you? Are you clueless about what chair to buy? Do you have chair commitment issues? Do you need a chair you could use anywhere? This might just be the solution –  In fact, this chair might be the most versatile chair in our showroom. And we almost always have them on hand, which is a sign of its greatness. I can’t think of a time when there wasn’t one here in some form or another.  And right now we have several versions. Wanna see?

Slipcovered :


Beautiful worn leather with spit-tack trim :


Upholstered in a soft blue fabric with a pewter nailhead trim :


Upholstered in a cotton pinstripe :



Still no name though. How about the Anywhere Chair? Let’s go with that. It’s catchy. It’s got a little rhythm to it…plus, it’s true.


Deal of the Week….finally SOLD!

Sorry, it’s sold.


We are feeling very guilty. It’s been a while since you’ve heard from us. So to make amends we are going to do something unprecedented – a pair of chairs. A pair! Washable slipcoered chairs, no less!

Now, why are we so willing to ditch a pair of chairs? I mean, besides the fact that we are trying to repent. Well, our store is busting at the seams – there’s stuff that hasn’t even seen the light of day. So this is going to make some room. And, to be frank, these chairs are, well, a little boring. The frame isn’t the problem – The frame is great, a classic. It’s actually one of our best sellers. The issue is the fabric. It’s really boring fabric. Durable, washable cotton. But it’s tan. Just tan. Like khaki pants. Boring.

And one more thing, we aren’t delivering these. You gotta come get em’, and the sooner the better.

Dimensions – 31″ wide, 41″ deep, 38″ high







original price $1440 each, so $2880 for the pair    sale price – $999. For the pair!!!!

Deal of the Week – SOLD!

Well this week we have what we will generously call a screw-up. A two part screw up, in fact.

Part 1 was the fault of a manufacturer. You see we ordered, from them, a really handsome looking tufted leather ottoman. It sits on an iron frame. We were very excited to see it in the store…….until it arrived. It seems when we asked for a brown leather they thought we meant an ottoman the color of a jack-o-lantern. Not so much.

Part 2 was our very well intentioned attempt to correct the halloween-ness of said ottoman. In the past, we have had great luck in taking a sander to leather and wearing it back to a pretty Ralph Laurenesque aged leather – think 50 year old lawyers briefcase, 100 year old english club chair in a stately home. This attempt, well, it did not go well. So instead of Ralph-chic we have something else.

We are so embarrassed by this whole thing that we just want it to go away. So, our mistake is your gain!  We couldn’t resist the cliche.

So we offer up this tufted leather ottoman that would look good in any number of spots: garage, treehouse, maybe your mother in laws’ living quarters.  This is a great looking ottoman, i mean, if you overlook the color. At 18″ tall, 31″square it would make a fantastic coffee table. And the thing is, this is fixable. This thing could be revived. It is NOT a lost cause. Quite the contrary. We just don’t want to be the ones to do it. We are done. We are ready to walk away. So, buy it already!





original price – $599    sale price – $100


Deal of the Week! SOLD!!

Sorry. It sold already.

Wow. Our showroom is packed. And we have more furniture coming next week….and the next. Plus we have all kinds of new knick-knacky do-dads coming in too. Not to mention the antique rugs. Can you tell that we are feeling a little overwhelmed?

So, in an effort to clean house we are dumping a sofa. A good sofa.

This is a beautiful tall backed upholstered sofa. Elegant lines, grey fabric. I guess you could say it’s a more formal-ish looking sofa. Top of the line cushions, in fact, our favorite kind – they are down-wrapped springs, which means they keep their shape but are still comfy. The fabric is a cotton linen blend and is very durable.

Oh, one more thing. On the back of the sofa, at the top, on the welt….there is a little smudge. It’s a grey smudge, so it kinda blends in. Jonny says its the size of the end of a pencil eraser, which is pretty accurate. Not super noticeable if you float the sofa in the middle of a room, and if it’s going against a wall….well, then it really doesn’t matter at all.

Dimensions – 93″ long, 41″ deep, 41″ high





original price – $3590   sale price – $900!!!!

Deal of the Week – SOLD!

Sorry, it’s sold.

I could make excuses, lots of them, for why there has been no Deal of the Week. I could spend this whole post listing them, but luckily for you we feel so guilty about depriving everyone of the Deal that i am going to get right to it.

This is a result of our overzealous love for white furniture. We have no less then 78 pieces of white furniture. Not really. Anyway more rolled in yesterday, so something’s gotta give, and it’s this chair.

An English-arm chair slipcovered in a white-ish/ivory-ish washable cotton. A nice squishy throw pillow sits on its tight back. It’s perfect. I can’t say anymore.
