I was channel surfing last night and saw a table that we have available to order from Nuevo on Big Brother.   They used two of the rectanglular Amici coffee tables side by side.   The Amici is avilable as either a brushed stainless steel 24" x 35.5" table with a tempered glass top or a 40" square table (and no glass).

"To create, one must first question everything." Eileen Gray

We love great design.  It's even better when we can afford it ourselves at a price that is not out of reach.  That's why we're excited to carry a reproduction of Eileen Gray's famous E-1027 table.  Gray (1878-1976) originally designed the piece as a bedside table at her villa in southern France.  Today it's scale and adjustable arm allow it the flexibility to be used for it's original purpose or in the living room as a small cocktail table or end table as we show it in our store.  

N.B.  In case you were wondering where the name E-1027 comes from - it is code for the names of Eileen Gray and here partner at the time Jean Badovici.  E is for Eileen.  10 is for J (which is the 10th letter of the alphabet).  2 is for B. 7 is for G.

Meet Wynona

Wynona is the latest addition to our sofa family from Palliser.  We love its versatile configurations, clean lines and built-in end table and ottoman.  Our kiwi cover and chrome legs give it a fun, retro feel.  Stop by and choose from the over 300 leather and fabric options and build your own Wynona.

Sometimes you want a splash of red for a pop of color.  Instead of bringing the hue into the room with a rug or a piece of artwork, why not try the Shuoji end table from Moe's?  We love its simple, Chinese influenced shape and great price at only $249.99.  It would look incredible next to a black leather chair.  It is also available to order in black, white, and teal.

Cool Lighting

Are you looking to add a cool sconce to your home, but do not want it to look like you purchased it at a big hardware store?  Then check out this one from Nova Lighting.  You'll love its sexy profile.  The various lengths of beaded chain create a melting ice effect.  How can something so cold be so hot?  See the matching sconce in person at Below Zero Lounge.

Cincinnati Magazine March 2009

Check out the new article in Cincinnati Magazine on pages 40-41.  It is about the shops in Gateway Quarter on Vine Street between Central Parkway and 13th.  Make sure you pick up a copy and read about our great neighbors.  

A big thanks to Joy Kraft and Cincinnati Magazine for a nice write up of our community.  

"Red oak floors and loads of natural light made the recent move to this space a no-brainer.  It's a natural spot for the mix of classic modern, casual contemporary, and cozy transitional pieces. Owner Fred Arrowood added to his inventory: Palliser leather sofas and chairs, a line of custom 16-inch slipcovered pillows from North Carolina . . . and custom Best Chairs that are at your door from Indiana in 30 days.  Plus loads of lighting, accessories, gifts, artwork, and mirors."

One Year Anniversary/Final Friday Pics

We celebrated our one year anniversary and the opening of our current location on Vine Street on January 30, 2009. It was nice having a party with our good friends and meeting new people. Cuisine East West made the chicken satay, caprese skewers and the amazing salted fingerling poatatoes. I made the guac, lox hors d'ouevres, pecan bars, chocolate cupcakes and the jam thumbprint cookies. And our good friend Joe created a video for the event.

You can find more pics on our Facebook page.
