Occupation: Psychiatric Nurse

FG Discovery Story: A simple Google search

Favorite FG Purchase: Olivetti-Underwood Lettera 22 Typewriter

In the heart of the East Village, Clarisse’s compact studio apartment is a uniquely cool space. It features a quirky mix of industrial and medical style furnishings combined with vibrant pops of color. Though the place is small and every nook is filled, Clarisse has managed to make her home feel lived-in and curated without being cluttered or overwhelming. She’s been shopping with us for going-on 4 years, and has just about completely furnished her space Furnish Green. As a psychiatric nurse, she has gravitated toward medical equipment, decor and furnishings, giving the space a distinct edge. The full-size anatomical skeleton is both a welcoming and slightly creepy presence in the apartment while assorted retro owl figurines can be spotted keeping a secure watch from all angles.

Clarisse’s favorite FG find is a muted blue typewriter, specifically the Olivetti-Underwood Lettera 22 from the 1950s. She purchased this piece for the express purpose of writing a book, and that’s exactly what she did! “Bedtime Stories,” Clarisse’s book of poetry, was motivated by her collection of vintage photographs. Each photograph featured in the book is accompanied by a vignette of imagined dialogue. Hitting notes of hilarity and heartbreak on each page, the choice of photographs and way with words seems to be a further extension of the keen curatorial eye evident in her home.

We think Clarisse’s self-described love of “old stuff” is beautifully expressed in both her home and her book. Check ’em out!


We hope you enjoyed this installment of our Dwellings series! Stay tuned for future posts, and email us at furnishgreen@gmail.com for a chance to have your space featured!

Online Only: The FG Warehouse

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.

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!

New Website Coming Soon!

shop_page_detail

We are very excited to announce that within the next couple of weeks, we will be launching a new website! Now that our current site is a couple of years old, it’s in need of an upgrade for the sake of our customers, that’s you! Here’s a bit about what you should expect:

Features and Functionality:

The new site will have better functionality and will also feature an easy-to-use mobile site! We want you to have the cleanest navigational experience as possible with our fresh new design and layout. Our Blog and social media will have a more prominent presence to help keep you up to date on things like sales and awesomely educational furniture info while also encouraging you to engage and interact with us.

Design Updates:

In addition to updates in functionality and content, the new website will boast a more visually vibrant and cohesive appearance while maintaining the simple and intuitive framework that we all know and love. A new diagram illustrating our process, and page identifiers employing the FG icon set add a little more of our personality and make for an easier navigation experience.

Newsletter:

If you’re not really into social media but you want to know what’s going on at Furnish Green, you can now sign up for our newsletter right on the homepage. The emails will still be fairly infrequent and will only be sent out when we’ve got some exciting news, like a sale or fun blog feature. If you thought you were already signed up but have not been receiving any emails from us, just go ahead and sign up again to be safe.

Featured Blogs: These will reside on the homepage.

Dwellings – This blog series features the homes and businesses of our FG regulars. We love to see the ways that customers use our pieces to thoughtfully furnish their spaces. We then share their spaces with you to serve as a source of inspiration. Let us know if you would like to be featured! Even if you don’t have a ton of FG items, but you’re proud of your spot, let us know because we would love to show it off!

A Record Blog: This is a recurring blog series that covers all things records and will mostly highlight the vinyl we carry in our showroom. Some of you may not know this, but, alongside our vintage furniture stock,  we carry an affordable vinyl record selection. You will be able to buy blog featured lp’s on the site, with the option to have them shipped anywhere.


So there ya have it! We hope you’re as excited as we are!

Keep an eye out for the updated site and any fun events that might go along with it!
