Hipster Home Feedback

Since we're always (and I mean always) in the store we rarely get to see our pieces at their final destination point.  So you can understand that we were pretty excited when our friend Chris sent us this picture of the James Lounge Convertible Sofa and the Chicago 8 Shelving Unit in his loft at the Byrne Building Lofts.  Also pictured is the Bishop (C) Table over the sofa that wraps around the seat to provide a stable and fashionable setting for you drinks, food or just the remote.

The James Lounge Sofa converts into a single bed and is a sturdy, ultra comfortable piece and is versatile.  With a welded stainless steel base and support there are no screws that can loosen with time and use.  The fabric is a micro fiber weave (so you know it's durable) and it resembles a mens suite in look and feel.  Rarely will you find convertibles that are intelligent looking, elegant and functional.  

The Chicago 8 Shelving Unit is from Blu Dot and has multiple possibilities and can easily convert to whatever needs you have whether it be a shelving unit, bookcase or entertainment unit and is visually pleasing as it uses both positive and negative space, exposing portions of the area behind it for a unique visual and textural sequence.  The possibilities are endless and the quality is superior to anything else on the market.  The Chicago 8 Series is one of Blu Dot's most popular pieces.  Check it out at

The Truss Chair by Gus Modern

Wikipedia definition:  In architecture and structural engineering, a truss is a structure comprising one or more triangular units constructed with straight slender members whose ends are connected at joints referred to as nodes. External forces and reactions to those forces are considered to act only at the nodes and result in forces in the members which are either tensile or compressiveforces. Moments (torsional forces) are explicitly excluded because, and only because, all the joints in a truss are treated as revolutes.

Geometry class is back!  Get your protractors out and sharpen your pencils because we're rolling out the new Truss Chair by Gus Modern.  This mid-century styled chair features a solid natural wood oak frame with an interlocking truss base and finger joint detailing on the arms.  The craftsmanship is outstanding and the look is very retro.  This chair is gonna steal the show and will not settle for being called an "accent chair" in any room.  Bottom line this chair is stylish, sleek and sexy.  Get yours now at or stop into the store and check it out for yourself.
