A Thousand Thanks

In this New Year, amidst so much change, our thoughts turn to all those who have made our progress possible over the past year. For that we'd like to say...

Thank You!

We love what we do. You inspire us to work our hardest every day to provide furniture and decor that is timeless and modern, beautiful and functional, with an unwavering commitment to the highest quality and personal service.

In appreciation we'd like to offer our next 100 clients $100 off any purchase of $1,000 or more. Use code "100x" when shopping online, or simply mention this blog post when you shop in our showroom. 

If you are looking for something specific and can't find it, please ask us! Most of what we offer is made to order, and we can often order far beyond the options you see on our website and in our showroom.

We love to help designers and clients find and customize exactly the right piece. We deliver locally, and ship around the world.
