Ode to The Aeron™

Ode to The Aeron™

November 30, 2012

Like the tyrannical medieval kings, who reigned with black hearts and iron fists.
Like the emperors of old, who dominated the great civilizations of the past.
Like the mighty monarchs of  biblical worlds, who ruled with wisdom and kindness.
Like the ancient pharaohs, upon their thrones.
Like Solomon, King of Kings, who sat amongst the lions.
So stand the modern monarchs, they who sit upon the Aeron™  Throne.

Capitalist, entrepreneur, CEO.
The conquerors of today.
They sit upon the Aeron™.

Admiral of the executive board,
As he directs his commercial fleet,
He sits upon the Aeron™.

The corporate legal Baron,
As he wages epic battles,
He sits upon the Aeron™.

The Tech world wizards,
As they weave their programming spells,
They sit upon the Aeron™.

Just as there can be no ruler without his lavish throne.
There can be no chairman without his Aeron™.

Your Aeron™  is here.
Your Aeron™ awaits.

Know Your Furniture: Dresser, Armoire or Chest of Drawers…?

Know Your Furniture: Dresser, Armoire or Chest of Drawers…?

November 29, 2012

In this, the second installment of Madison Seating’s “Know Your Furniture” series, I would like to take a moment to discuss some of the complex intricacies of a certain widely used but little understood piece of bedroom furniture, the Dresser. Or is it the Armoire? Or… wait… hold on a second, maybe it’s a Chest of Drawers…?

This kind of confusion is exactly what the “Know Your Furniture” series is here to address.

So which is it? What is the difference between them? And which respective instance would be the appropriate use of each term?

Lets find out.

Hey y’all, hope you all enjoyed a wonderful turkey-day celebration, and now that we have all survived a wacky weekend of Thanksgiving parties, Football games and the perils of Black Friday shopping (I mean, seriously!

Ridiculous.) it’s now time to turn our attention to Cyber Monday and the incredible online shopping discounts that make today the busiest online shopping day of the year.

Black Friday and Thanksgiving Furniture

Black Friday and Thanksgiving Furniture

November 20, 2012

Yep, it’s that time of year again folks, so dust off that football, deep fry that bird, and most importantly…lose that lame old knitted cap before your in-laws arrive, and lets get down to the real Thanksgiving business – shopping for great Black Friday furniture deals.

Who doesn’t love black Friday, right? (Well, unless you happen to be employed by Wal-Mart or some such, and are routinely called in for “crowd control” duties halfway through your thanksgiving dinner…) By and large, Black Friday is a win-win for all involved, great deals for consumers, unprecedented traffic for retailers, and a chance for repressed single moms to release some aggression while engaged in a battle to death over the last “Shmop” in aisle seven…

The Powerful and Subliminal Influence of Furniture Colors

The Powerful and Subliminal Influence of Furniture Colors

November 19, 2012

Happy Monday (not!) and welcome back,

Here at the Madison Seating blog, furniture is not only our business but also our passion, and we endeavor to share that passion with the greater furniture loving community at large by touching on a diverse range of furniture related topics. The one aspect of furniture that is perhaps most fascinating of all, (to myself at least) is the apparent subliminal psychological effect certain aspects of our everyday furniture can have on our lives.

I first encountered the phenomenon in an article I posted only a few weeks back entitled “Emotional Instability Caused by…Wobbly Furniture!?”, detailing the apparent effects of unstable furniture on our attitudes and emotional health, but I recently came across an equally fascinating article on the psychological impact individual colors and color combinations and how they affect people in profound, subconscious ways.

Brad Pitt, Actor, Director and…Furniture Designer!?

Brad Pitt, Actor, Director and…Furniture Designer!?

November 16, 2012

So there’s been this rumor going around that some guy named “Brad Pits” or “Bradly Pitt” or something, has announced he is now a furniture designer, and everybody is going crazy about it! The New York Times did a write up on it, People Magazine, the Huffington Post, and now I can hardly get through my morning coffee without some newbie here at the office coming up to me and gushing something like “did you hear…!?” or “Is it true…!?”. Really! Come on people! How many times have we heard this before! Some no-name loser, who couldn’t make it in the real world, quits his dead end job at the local gas station and decides ( the following is to be read while doing your best Homer Simpson impression,) “Hey! I know…I will design furniture!”

Wacky Furniture You (Sort of) Wish You Had

November 13, 2012

I know what your thinking, but no, unfortunately we don’t carry this particular item here at Madison Seating. This is just something I came across while browsing the web late one night (or was it early one morning… I forget…) and I thought I would share it with y’all, along with some of the other weird and wacky furniture concepts out there. Hope you enjoy!

Know Your Furniture: The Chaise Longue

Know Your Furniture: The Chaise Longue

November 12, 2012

Good morning to you all,


This new series entitled “Know Your Furniture”,  is intended in part to remedy a particular injustice in the furniture world. We’ve all been there, standing around a kitchen or living room, cocktails in hand listening to a super-snobbish friend or neighbor describe in excruciating detail the profound nature and exquisite history of their newest furniture acquisition. The group around you listens politely, maybe they have some idea of what this self styled furniture guru is talking about but you wouldn’t be surprised if they were just as clueless as you and were simply employing the exact same strategy that has you looking fascinated, smiling and desperately trying to nod and sigh in the right places.
