Barbara Westbrook Book Signing… Save The Date!

AUGUST
2015

We are thrilled to announce that interior designer Barbara Westbrook will be at SummerHouse signing her brand new book Gracious Rooms on September 17th from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.!

Barbara is extremely talented, so we look forward to picking her design brain while she’s here! 😉

Lisa says, “Barbara has a very unique take on Southern style which I relate to. She mixes modern with antique furnishings beautifully. What I love about her is that she designs for her client. And that is something that we stress at SummerHouse emphatically. We are over the moon that Barbara decided to make a stop here at SummerHouse on her book tour. We are honored and look forward to having her here!”

Why We Love Wounded Warrior Project

07
JULY
2014

In case you missed the announcement last week, we are partnering with Lee Industries and Restyle Source in their Lee Gives Back campaign, so when you buy any Lee Industries upholstery during the month of July, you’re supporting Wounded Warrior Project!

We could not be more excited to support this worthy cause!

SH.woundedwarrior

So why did we choose Wounded Warrior Project?

Here are just a few reasons…

– Their vision is to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.

– Their purpose is to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured service members aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.

– Armed with fun, integrity, loyalty, innovation, and service + a culture of teamwork, Wounded Warrior Project staff work to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded warriors in our nation’s history!

See why we think so much of this organization?! 🙂

We can think of no better way to give back to our community! Thanks again for your business, especially during this month where, together, we can make a real difference in the lives of our servicemen!

Jury Duty

JUNE
2014

This year, SummerHouse had the pleasure of furnishing the Jurors’ Lounge for the International Ballet Competition! The IBC is a prestigious two-week event where competitors from all over the world come to Jackson to compete for bronze, silver, and gold medals as well as contracts with dance companies!

SummerHouse furnishes the IBC Jurors' Lounge

The jurors have the difficult task of determining winners and awarding prizes, so we wanted to make their lounge a haven where they could come and relax between competitions and just enjoy themselves in a serene setting!

Marty and Lisa did a fantastic job of picking what would go in the space, and Bethany and Tina were on hand to help get things steamed, fluffed, etc.! And of course our fabulous moving guys did a great job of getting everything over to the space!
