The Oscars… of The Furniture World!?

The Oscars… of The Furniture World!?

February 25, 2013

The Oscars have come a long way since the first ceremony at a private hotel banquet in 1929 when just 270 people attended, guests had to pay only $5 and all the winners were known ahead of time. More and more people are tuning in every year around this time to watch as Hollywood crowns it’s latest princes and princesses, and deliberates over the finer points of the past years masterpieces.

Now imagine, all you fellow furniture enthusiasts, some parallel universe where, at that first Oscars dinner over 85 years ago, it was not the glittering and gilded persona’s of the movie industry who walked the red carpet and made grandiose acceptance speeches, rather, and bear with me here, it’s was the somewhat more sophisticated and tastefully dressed artists and designers of the furniture industry. Crazy, I know, but think about it, and the more you do, the less ridiculous it will seem.

Mercedes Benz Furniture

February 20, 2013

Super-stars of the auto industry for well over a century, Mercedes-Benz has become the symbol for excellence and superiority in it’s field.

The  manufacturing giant has apparently expanded it’s considerable sphere of influence to include furniture design as well. A curious choice if you ask me, but Mercedes has proven nothing if not that when they set their mind to something, they usually get it done, and do it better, with more class and style than every one else.

As far as the furniture pieces themselves, well, let’s have a look…

Ok, I know what your thinking, “Oh no, here we go again… another chest thumping retailer spouting off about incredible deals, huge sales, lowest prices ever, yada yada yada…”

Honestly, I can’t say that I blame you. In today’s culture of over the-top-marketing and gimmicky advertising schemes, it can sometimes be difficult for the average consumer to keep up with which ones are for real and which are somewhat less so.

Which is why I would like to take a moment to give you some of  the back-story behind the new Madison Seating Clearance section and in doing so, will hopefully share some insight as to why one of the web’s premier furniture websites is offering some of it’s highest quality products at such ridiculously low prices.

Whenever there is an overstock situation, many retailers will sit on the extra stock in the hopes that that particular market trend returns or will hold out for busier shopping seasons before placing that item on sale. Not Madison Seating. We believe in passing those discounts and sales on to you, the customer, immediately!

This is but one of the many ways a particular item can end up in the new Mega Clearance section, so don’t hesitate to check it out !

(simply click on the following link to be redirected to Clearance page and to begin shopping immediately. Clearance Page.)

And remember, new items are being added every day, so keep checking back for the latest deals and savings!

Furniture for Valentines?…Yes Indeed!

Furniture for Valentines?…Yes Indeed!

February 14, 2013

THE ISSUE

On February 14, men and women around the country will find themselves exchanging romantic Valentine’s Day presents, typically an assortment of baubles and gifts, many of which, unfortunately, simply won’t last long in their partners possession and consequently, in their hearts . Chocolates are gone quickly, and we often regret devouring them in the first place. Roses, while lovely, just don’t last.

THE SUGGESTION

This year, why not think outside the chocolate box when choosing a gift for your beloved. Something unique, something he or she will cherish for years, perhaps even decades to come. We spend so much time at home that a gift of beauty for our living space can bring sweetness for years to come. If you imagine your girlfriend smiling fondly as she wears that bracelet that you gave her, first think of generally small turnaround the average piece of jewelry will afford you, a few months? a year? and then you will find yourself right back in the jewelry store looking for more… then think of the little spark she will feel every time she enters a room adorned with your gifts.

The Mirra Chair, by Herman Miller

The Mirra Chair, by Herman Miller

February 13, 2013

When we think of the iconic executive chair manufacturer Herman Miller, we  generally tend to think of the Aeron™ and rightly so. The Aeron™ has certainly cemented it’s place at the very top of the ergonomic totem pole, with it’s unparalleled ergonomic design and standard of comfort.

However, the Mirra, also by Herman Miller, may be one of the few other ergonomic options that may be mentioned in the same breath as it’s big brother, the Aeron™.

The Mirra is a design that was achieved with international cooperation by Herman Miller and Studio 7.5, a German design firm. It’s also certified, 96% recyclable and 42% fabricated with material derived from recycled resources.

Here are just a few of the specs on this uber-ergonmic masterpiece…

Hervé Van der Straeten, Art or Furniture?

Hervé Van der Straeten, Art or Furniture?

February 11, 2013

So often the line between furniture and art, the very thinnest of lines to begin with, can become so thin as to disappear altogether. Through the annals of history, great furniture designs and designers have been lauded more as art and artist, than mere craft and craftsman.

The same holds true today, even as the proverbial dividing line may have widened a little, as the great corporate machines churn out mass productions of pragmatic and functional furniture, there still remain those few visionaries, nay, artists, of the furniture world, whose finished pieces are as much a work of art as they are furniture.

Dynamic furniture maker Hervé Van der Straeten is a perfect example.

Last week in Chelsea, the opening night of a new 35-piece collection from the Paris-based furniture designer lit up the 15,000-square-foot loft space at Pucci International, among the finest furniture galleries in the United States, why not have a look for yourself…
