4 Sales in Honor of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month: November 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th

 
  • When: Sunday, November 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th
  • Where: furnishgreen.com; online only, showroom closed
  • What: 10% off all inventory for you & we’ll donate 10% to Rhythm Break Cares with coupon code: rbcares10
  • Why: November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, and we’d love to support a charity that does so much for individuals living with this disease. Rhythm Break Cares offers wonderful opportunities to New Yorkers dealing with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
The mission of Rhythm Break Cares is to provide the restorative power of music, movement and touch to people living with dementia and their loved ones.

At RBC, the primary goal is to increase the quality of life for individuals living with Dementia and their care partners.  Recent estimates suggest that 5.4 million people in America currently have Alzheimer’s Disease and that one in eight older Americans will eventually develop AD. While research has shown that cognitive tasks and physical activity appear to delay the onset and severity of dementia and Alzheimer’s, more recent work has shown that partner dancing not only promotes these healthy activities, but also incorporates the benefits of movement, music, touch, and social engagement.

RB cares provides a unique opportunity for individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia to participate in partner dance by hosting dance sessions throughout the New York City region.  The instructors are professional dancers who have undergone substantial training to understand how the Alzheimer’s community best responds to and benefits from partner dancing.  Their events include on-site sessions at dementia and memory centers, private lessons, tea socials, and instructions for caregivers and caregiver group classes.

Rhythm Break Cares is a 501(c)(3) public charity. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Furniture Fact #26: Industrial Furniture

Very few weekdays pass when we don’t get a new piece of industrial furniture in our showroom. The popularity of these pieces seems to grow by the second as furniture lovers have begun mixing more into their spaces.

When choosing furniture for government buildings, buyers needed two simple elements: function and durability. Furnishings in a work or public space were expected to be used often, and thus required the durability to withstand decades of use. The style organically born of these two needs was Industrial.

Industrial furniture was never meant for any particular taste, leading to practical shapes with clean lines formed from common materials: Tin, Steel, Aluminum, Iron, etc.

Industrial Furniture in the Modern Home:

Industrial furniture pieces can be some of the most difficult pieces to identify because most were never named to begin with. This mystery gives industrial furniture its timeless appeal. Most people have seen hundreds of industrial pieces in public or work spaces throughout their lives. So to see the style mixed into the modern living space gives a sense of nostalgia.

Check out our ever growing collection of industrial furniture and accent pieces while they’re still available!

 

 

 

Listen, I Like Industrial Style But I Also Like Wood:

Consider Arts & Crafts/Mission furniture with its similar clean lines and unpretentious designs. Hey, that rhymes!


Fun Furniture Fact #25: Stanley Olé Collection

We are always trying to discover new fun facts about the pieces that come into our showroom. This week we are digging a little deeper into our Stanley Furniture collection.

In 1924, after quitting his job as an executive at Basset Furniture Company, Thomas Bahnson Stanley decided to start his own furniture business. At the young age of 33, he bought a plot of land in Virginia and turned it into Stanleytown. A factory was built, streets were laid, and homes were constructed for his workers to live in. His factory became one of the leading furniture manufacturers in the country, producing quality furniture that impressed the markets in Grand Rapids, Chicago and New York. Even through The Great Depression, they remained a strong business because Stanley took such pride in keeping his workers and his customers happy.

Stanley has remained a high-end name in furniture throughout the decades. In the late mid-century, they produced a fun line of bedroom furniture called the Olé Collection. It came in several colors with red and yellow being the most popular. It was probably the most colorful furniture at that time and was featured in several magazines with the slogan “We made Olé because little girls never stay little”. It was a dream come true for many girls around the nation.

                               

We just got a nearly complete set of the Olé Yellow Collection in our Manhattan showroom. It includes a twin-sized bed, a desk with a matching chair, and a tall bookcase cabinet. The best thing about this collection is that you don’t have to be a little girl to enjoy it. This energetic, retro furniture was designed to be appealing to both children and adults. It features a bright green trim and orange flowers around the hardware. It has a very whimsical vibe and is perfect for any space in need of some color!

You can check it all out here.

Furnish Green Warehouse: Offering Access to our Expanded Inventory

One of our main goals at Furnish Green is to be able to offer our customers the most extensive vintage furniture inventory possible at the lowest possible price. However, we don’t want to overwhelm shoppers with a space that’s filled to the brim! So the idea behind the FG Warehouse is that it allows us to have a larger expanded inventory while maintaining a pleasant showroom experience with a manageable and interesting selection of products.

img_7044

Our warehouse is an offsite location that provides storage space for our online-only inventory which is updated with new items weekly. These offsite items are not available to view in person, but they are presented with the same detailed photo layout as our in-store pieces. Each product page also tells you the item’s dimensions and offers notable information on its condition. These warehouse pieces are indicated via the phrase ‘ONLINE ONLY’ in their title.

If you’d like to see one of these items in person, it can be brought into the showroom for a 15%-20% deposit; the deposit amount either goes toward your total or, if you decide not to purchase the piece, will become store credit that is valid for 1 year.

Once purchased, the online-only items will come into our showroom to then either be picked up or delivered. As with the rest of our inventory, these items are ‘Final Sale’ and cannot be returned or exchanged so please call with specific questions regarding pieces prior to purchase.

Check out the ever-changing online-only inventory here!

Additionally, this means that if you don’t see what you’re looking for in our showroom, we may be able to find something from our offsite inventory that will suit your needs. So let us know what you’re looking for!

In your home: Fall Decor

Fall is upon us and it’s feelin’ good! So we thought, in honor of the season and the upcoming Halloween holiday, we’d throw some decorating inspiration your way.

You could go with a classic look, relying on the standard pumpkin, gourd, dried leaves combo, utilizing autumnal shades throughout. Or you could opt for a creepy vibe, getting playful and paying homage to the weird, supernatural nature of the month of October.

Either way, the FG showroom has your fall decorating needs, and since most of the items featured are not up on the site, you’ll have to stop by to peruse the selection.

Furniture Fact #18: Crotch Walnut

Crotch Walnut

Here at Furnish Green, we come by many beautiful pieces of furniture crafted from a wide variety of wood species. Many factors make a piece special (aside from the fact that it has already stood the test of time), including design style or time period of origin, but the wood grain detail is often a distinctive feature. Therefore, I would like to introduce you to crotch walnut wood grain!

Crotch walnut comes about at the point where a branch intersects with a tree’s trunk and/or when there is a double trunk. In this region there is limited space for the tree to grow. With each year of growth, another annual ring of thickness is added; as wood pushes against wood, the grain starts to buckle in different directions. Wood fibers weave together to strengthen the limbs or branches, forming the crotch and feather appearance.This beautiful distortion rewards us with a grain that shimmers in the light and looks like waves of liquid.

A wonderful Furnish Green example can be seen in our recently sold 1930s Crotch Walnut Chifferobe  (featured in the image above). This piece displays fine carved wood detail accompanying mother nature’s art of the crotch walnut wood grain along the doors.

Check out another example of some FG crotch walnut in coffee table form here!
