The Laura Sectional...

The crisp, tailored lines of our Laura sectional are balanced by the velvety micro-fiber fabric and plush down fill, to create a small scale sectional the encourages extended relaxation.

I'm especially loving the gray-toned colors on both of our floor models. In Menlo Park the sectional is displayed in a rich, deep "pewter", and in Burlingame, the sectional is displayed in a softer "storm" gray.
Both are totally colors of the moment that will be style savvy (and family-friendly) for years to come!

Lava Soap, The Original

You've heard the saying, "they just don't make 'em like they used to," and in many cases they don't. But, lucky us, we've gotten our hands on this blast from the original case of the popular LAVA SOAP!

This is the genuine article, all in its original packaging from the 1940's.
Since then, people have sworn by this miracle solvent soap and its ability to remove grease, grime and rust from hard-working hands.

Come to pick-up this time-honored classic.
What a great piece of nostalgia to surprise Pops with!

The Marin Sectional, dressed for Fall

Our Marin sectional, shown in a "harvest" gold microfiber, is dressed for fall with autumnal pillows and a rich, textured throw. This inviting sofa is sleek, but cozy and definitely "family friendly". Imagine gathering the whole family on this spacious sectional for your next movie night, without worrying about stains and spills!

Trend Alert: Brass is Back in a Big Way!

Browsing through shelter magazines, searching design blogs, and sourcing the latest introductions in interior design can bring trends to the surface. One trend that seems to be on the rise is BRASS! Yep, that's right, brass is back in a big way! The latest brass accents appear more refined, time-worn and antiqued. It's not the shiny, 80's brass that we all so quickly removed from our doors and bathroom walls in order to update our new homes. The new brass has character and a bit of vintage flair. 

The new brass is best displayed as an accent metal, perfectly at ease among a mix of aged pewter, oil-rubbed bronze and the like. To integrate this trend in your own home, start with a few interesting accents. Perhaps a pharmacy style lamp on your office desk, or a few chunky, brass candlesticks on the mantle.

Vintage Beauty

I recently scored this amazing piece at a local antique shop.  I thought about bringing it into the store, but decided to keep it for myself. Sorry guys; it's just too perfect in my new dining room. :)

I love all the little drawers with labeled pulls, perfect for organizing small baubles like napkin rings, place cards, and votives. It's not your typical dining room buffet, but I think every room has a place for something out of the ordinary. I'll be sure to post pictures of the install once the dining room is complete.
If you're loving this look we carry a similar replica from Aidan Gray Home. The finish is more of a white-wash and the pulls are different, but the concept is the same. (see below)

We're always out and about gathering unique finds for the stores. If you ever have something specific in mind, just e-mail us and we'll put it on our request list.
