Every weekday new products make their way into the showroom and onto our website, and with an ever-changing inventory of around 800 furniture and home decor items, it’s easy to miss things, no matter how special they may be! So we’re spotlighting some of our favorite pieces that you must have missed!
We don’t get Provincial-style buffets and credenzas in very often, and this one is a real beauty! A little taller than the standard credenza, it offers great storage and could work well in a living room, dining room, or bedroom. Made by Sheboygan, Wisconsin’s Rway Furniture Company, this is a steal at $571.
Often, “chandelier” evokes images of Victorian or Gothic ornate hanging lights with sprawling octopus arms. This chandelier is the opposite, with a compact clean silhouette and mysterious Deco forms. Holding five bulbs, it offers significant lighting in a sleek package for $225.
Especially well-suited for a restaurant or retail space, this contemporary high-back loveseat is very chic and welcoming. Any New York lobby, waiting area, or entryway could suit this piece that smartly blends neutral tones with audacious studs. The studs and tufted back mimic aspects of the beloved Chesterfield sofa in a decidedly modern manner. Bring the upscale flair of this loveseat to your home or business for only $407.
“The elephant in the room” is an idiom, referring to an obvious problem that is being avoided. “Four elephants in the room” is not an actual idiom, referring to this incredibly cool coffee table. The rich tone of the carved wood base looks incredibly stylish with its marbled stone top. Bold and a little playful, this attention-grabbing coffee table is $388.
The abstract green figures on the body of this lamp are wonderfully mysterious. Are they plants? Parts of a sea monster? Or just beautiful shapes? There’s no right answer, but this deep red lamp is a captivating addition for an edgy interior, and is $171.
Standing tall at 71″ (nearly six feet), this three-tiered cart is a unique storage option perfect for New Yorkers trying to maximize vertical space. It’s an early model of Flora-Cart, a three tiered rack for plant display used by florists and home gardeners. However, it has endless possible uses in a home or business and is $391.
Seafoam green swirls on a milky porcelain body make this the sweetest stove around! It would look charming in a retail display or delightfully unconventional as a home bar in your living room. Lovable and highly photogenic, it’s a great purchase for $452.

Though they’re rarely the first thing that comes to mind on hearing the word “furniture,” home appliances can make just as much of an aesthetic impact as a bold chair or ornate table. Kitchen appliances, in particular, have long been designed with a keen eye for style. We frequently get beautifully designed vintage kitchen appliances in stock at Furnish Green, like this art deco Breakfaster, this Osterizer beehive blender, and this Maid of Honor ice cream freezer. But rarely has one caused such a stir of excitement as when the Rival Ice-O-Matic electric ice crusher arrived.
“It’s so cool-looking!”
“We HAVE to try it out.”
And we did. It crushes up ice cubes into little ice shards so deftly that it seems to deserve a round of applause afterward. It could be a faithful friend through cocktail parties and hot days alike, and look good while doing it.
A little history: you’ve probably heard of Rival, and there’s a good chance there’s at least one item in your kitchen with their name on it. The Rival Company dates back to 1932 when, in Kansas City, Russian immigrant Henry J. Talge started a small die-casting business that soon began to produce their own products. Rival’s first product was the Juice-O-Mat manual juicer. The “O-Mat” and later “O-Matic” trademark landed on most of Rival’s kitchen and home products for decades, like the Shred-O-Mat, the Grind-O-Mat, the Steam-O-Matic, and the Protect-O-Matic.
The Rival Company produced many colors and styles of manual ice crushers and, in the 1950s, expanded into electric ice crushers. These sleek boxes of chrome, enamel, and plastic encapsulate the image of the perfect mid century Donna Reed kitchen, highly color coordinated and filled with tools and gadgets for every need.
Though this is the end of the story for our friendly Ice-O-Matic, the biggest chapter of the Rival story doesn’t come until 1971, when they introduce the Crock Pot. This innovative slow cooker changed home cooking for countless individuals and made the Rival brand a true household name. The company still exists today, though their product line is not as “O-Matic” centered as it once was.
So whether you’re building up your vintage bar or just prefer your ice to be very small, consider the noble Ice-O-Matic.
