Butterflies on the brain!

green butterfly

Hello friends! We certainly had a busy weekend with our big Passport to the Pavilions! Music, food and so many wonderful customers! Since we have five days left of our Butterfly Days promotion it would be an understatement to say we have butterflies on the brain! So for fun, we put together a color profile from one of our favorite butterfly prints in the shop right now, Avalonia Graphite by Braemore!

We broke down the colors in the fabric and corresponded it to Benjamin Moore paint colors straight from the paint fan! It is such a fun way to plan a room when you have it all laid out in little tiles for you, right? It makes it easier to piece create a scheme too, if you wanted to base a room on a certain fabric.

Well, we hope you enjoy the lovely fabric and colors and come in to see this fabric (it’s even prettier in person) and hundreds more!

There are five days left to get 20% off all in-stock purchases and an extra 20% off all clearance merchandise too! Spend $50 and you get the chance to draw a “fortune cookie” worth even more savings on future purchases!!

Designing a Room? Start with a Beautiful Fabric!

In a recent article at freshome Design & Architecture Magazine, our beliefs were confirmed regarding the basis for interior design in #6 of 10 Mistakes That (Almost) Everyone Makes in Interior Design.

#6: BUY FABRICS AND TEXTILES FIRST

“A common mistake that most of us are guilty of—painting first. Put that paint brush down! First, you need to pick out the rooms fabrics and main textiles, such as rugs and curtains.

Why is this? Because it is simply much easier to find fabrics that we love and then pick out paint to match. While it is much harder to find a fabric that we love, that also just so happens to match the paint we have already put on our walls.

So, with budget and room size in mind, go for a shopping excursion. Look through samples of fabrics, rugs, pillows etc… Find what you love and then once you are happy with your design choices, pick out a paint shade or shades from the chosen textiles. Now you can pick up the paint brush.”

The Charm of a Vintage Chair

The Hickory Chair Furniture Co. began one hundred years ago in Hickory, North Carolina with a single product and a simple vision. The product was a made-to-order dining chair.

hickorychair1911The vision was to combine the authenticity of classic craftsmanship with the efficiency of modern manufacturing. In the decades since, the product range has evolved into an assortment of timeless designs, drawn from significant periods and places, and from the talents of some of the world’s most respected designers.

Guided by a genuine commitment to custom craftsmanship and timely service, the Hickory Chair Furniture Costyle is still distinguished by an authentic, timeless spirit. As  a proud Made in the USA manufacturer, almost 90% of their furnishings today are made in their Hickory, North Carolina workroom.
