eat more caviar in 2016

after a lovely evening of caviar + bubbly – we thought everyone should “eat more caviar” (the sustainably sourced kind of course) in 2016….you’re thinking “caviar is expensive” and we’re thinking “well yes it is”…

SO we decided to offer 25% off Verellen orders

(sofas, chairs, ottomans, sectionals….) during our Winter Sale!

“keeping it green”


, , ,

our athletic director, mr. joe highland, always ended his talks with “keep it green” – this has been an especially green season as we have transitioned our container plantings for the winter – our clients, shop + homes are ‘smelling fresh + piney’ – there’s lots of texture, light…and in some cases ‘glamour’ – perfect for the holidays through february

as seen at the verellen showroom


, , , , , ,

twice a year we venture to high point nc to visit the verellen showroom – we use an approach similar to what i imagine we would use for a wine tasting tour…we spend an hour or so just walking + looking…then we methodically go through the entire showroom piece by piece – we sit (kind of like tasting – we take some “sitting notes”), we caress, we note + photograph details…and then we do it all again.

OCTOBER 2015 – handsome greys + charcoals augmented with jade + blue, new ‘textural’ fabric choices, the quintessential modular sofa…and stitch details
