This ain’t goodbye….it’s “see ya in my garage”

Standard

To all of the incredible Columbus Furniture Revival patrons-

I first off want to thank you all for following Columbus Furniture Revival since the beginning. I have loved collaborating with and hearing from all of you. It is time for Columbus Furniture Revival to make some changes. I opened this retail space thinking that it would be an incredible experience, which it has been. Unfortunately, it did not go in the direction I was hoping for. This has lead me to the decision that Columbus Furniture Revival will no longer have a storefront and will focus on our CUSTOM refinishing. Our doors will be closing at the end of June….and the good news is that we will be liquidating the store! EVERY PIECE OF FURNITURE WILL BE ON MEGA SALE!!!! This will start tomorrow (Friday the 30th) afternoon and go until everything is SOLD (or June 30th, whichever comes first). I will also be bringing pieces that may need a little work that will be super awesome deals.
 
I am very excited for the future ventures that I will be embarking on, along with continuing Columbus Furniture Revival Custom. If you have a piece of furniture that you want refinished, I am still your gal. This ain’t goodbye, it’s “see ya in my garage!” I am looking forward to working with you all in the future on some loved furniture pieces.

Vendor Profiles: Artist Robby Herbst & OneEleven

Standard

Today let’s take a look at two vendors whose wares help make CFR the fun little shop that it is.

20140423-175200.jpg

First up is OneEleven, the fabulously hip collection of bow ties we have here in the shop. We love the patterns and luxe fabrics. Raise your hand if you’re happy that bow ties have come back into fashion in a big way? It’s easy to imagine every tie in this collection dressed up for all those summer time weddings quickly approaching or dressed down for an evening out.

Next up is the collection of prints we have from local artist Robby Herbst. It’s feeling appropriate to feature Robby’s witty arboreal works a few days after Earth Day. These are incredibly reasonably priced and would look great framed. My personal favorite is the tree growing out of the TV set. Get outside and play, folks!

And while you’re outside walk yourself down to CFR to pick up a snazzy OneEleven tie or a Herbst print. We’ll see you soon!

Vendor Profile: Tastefully Dirty Lotions

Standard

IMG_5904IMG_5903

Do you know what has saved my hands this winter? Working in a store that sells these lovely lotions. Tester bottles! Yeah!

Tastefully Dirty is another great local business that we’re pleased to have in our store as a vendor partnership. The company is based in Grandview and makes all natural, plant based skin and hair care products. Here, I’ll let their site tell you about it:

Tastefully Dirty is a plant-based hair and skin care company that uses essential oils for therapeutic benefits. Our products are completely plant based, vegan, never tested on animals and do not contain any sodium laurel sulfates, paraben, or petroleum. Every product is created with a specific purpose in mind. Essential oils are chosen for their unique properties, whether it be anti-aging, skin discoloration, rosacea, to give your skin that “glow” or the many other amazing benefits that essential oils can provide.

I love the scents but my personal go-to is the Lavender & Spearmint. And just look at how cute that travel size bottle is! Perfect for any bag.

Since it looks like we may have a few more weeks of harsh weather please stop by the shop and check out these lovely lotions. Your skin will thank you immensely.

Playing Catch Up

Standard

Its almost here!!! Those days when it stays light longer, less clothes are worn, you don’t slip on your butt walking to your car, and COLOR!!! As life thaws out, more and more spring colors are popping up everywhere. Most of you who know me, are fully aware with my obsession with chartreuse. I know you can imagine how excited I was to get that tub of color and get to work.

Image

This is what came of my spring preparation. This incredible stools that I so badly want to take home, but of course I have no room. So they are here in the shop waiting for a good home to love them like I do.

Image

I also recently added a gorgeous antique drop top desk. She’s a beaut, ain’t she?

Stay tuned!!! With warmer comes better working condition which only means….MORE FURNITURE!!!!!!!

Happy sunny day

Get Holiday Ready

Standard

I am really enjoying this lovely snow day in Columbus. I am just waiting for a little bit of snow to fall! Luckily, the store is nice and warm and has an excellent view so that I can watch while the flakes fall. 

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving and Hanukkah! Now it’s time to prep for Christmas and New Years. If youre entertaining, you MUST get here quickly. We have this insane mid century modern dining table with built in leaves. This table could EASILY fit 10 people….I hate to repeat myself, but thats just INSANE! Not only that but we have some serious statement chairs to match. Holy guacamole I might have peed myself, I love these chairs so much.

New Furniture to “Fall” For

Standard

It jumped awfully quick from summer to almost winter weather!!. Leaving this morning with sleet falling from the sky was a wake up call! I have to get started on the preparations to ready myself to work in the garage in chilly weather conditions  (taking out my ski socks, my work jacket, hats and scarves). In the meantime, we got some new arrivals that can help ease us into the cooler weather transitions.
