Have you seen the latest issue of LonnyMag? It went live a little over a week ago and we simply cannot get enough!! (We won’t tell you how many times we’ve flipped through the pages… What a gorgeous magazine!)

One of our favorite parts about this particular issue is their story about Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams! The title of this EIGHT PAGE spread is The Gold Standard. If you didn’t already love the MGBW products, this will make you appreciate their furniture on a deeper level. Give it a once-over!

We had such a great time at our event last Thursday!

{ meet and greet with mitchell gold }

Mitchell Gold, our distinguished guest of honor, really seemed to enjoy the party our stellar party planners put on last week! The beautiful food provided by Viking Cooking School, all of the fun cocktails and interesting wines provided by Calistoga Wine and Spirits, and the fabulous Latin tunes from DJ Young Venom’s mix added to the festivity of the electric evening. From what we could tell, everyone was having a good time!

Time to Jet Set!

Lisa + team are off to High Point Market this weekend! They left EARLY this morning to catch their flight to one of the most fun weekends of the year! When asked about one thing she was really looking forward to on the trip, Lisa said,
“I am going to the MG+BW party on Saturday night. It’s a really cool
intimate small party of about 35 independent dealers. It’s at Mitchell
and Bob’s renovated ranch and Chef Sean always rocks the dinner.
I can’t wait. It’s one of the highlights of my trip!”

Check out the High Point Market by clicking on the image below to find out what all they have to get excited about!

Look for a full report {pictures included} when Lisa returns!

Sitting Pretty

Shop talk with Mitchell and Bob!

Just last week, two of our favorite furniture designers, Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams, were featured on CBS Sunday Morning! The feature outlines their journey of meeting, developing a business plan, and becoming successful as entrepreneurs making pretty and, more importantly, COMFORTABLE furniture! The feature also highlights their unconventional marketing tactics, the perks they offer to those who work for their company (including a day care and a dry-cleaning service!) and what their original business plan was, before it was furniture! (If you guessed something to do with wine and Christmas, you might be right!) To see the full video, click here.

While we’re on the topic of Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, we wanted to remind you that when you buy two or more MGBW casegood pieces, you get 20% off!

Y’all know how much we love and stand behind this line of furniture. And we can all attest to how truly comfortable and family-friendly this line is! Come by the showroom and let us re-introduce you to the beautiful furniture of Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams!

Happy Birthday to US!

Happy birthday to us,

Happy birthday to us,

Happy birthday to SummerHouse…..

Happy birthday to us!

March is our birthday month, and this year we are turning FIVE! It is hard to believe SummerHouse has been going strong for five whole years!  It is actually older than that because Lisa had “Little SummerHouse,” as she likes to call it, in Fondren for years before moving to The Township in Ridgeland! What started out as a tiny, tiny shop with a shared resource library has grown into a beautiful showroom with a great big independent resource library! We love being out at the Township and have loved watching the steady development of the area around us.

Enough about SummerHouse… What do YOU get out of it being our birthday?  Well, starting tomorrow (March 1), we will have markdowns on every piece of in-stock furniture and most accessories!  In addition to amazing savings, we will have homemade gourmet cupcakes every Saturday! The cupcakes alone are worth a trip… Marty makes them using her secret recipe!

We hope to see you lots during the month of March!  🙂

Behind the Scenes: Portico Photo Shoot

This morning we had so much fun with the ladies who are compiling the story for the next issue of Portico Jackson Magazine! Amanda Wells, a local journalist, and Daphne Nabors, local photographer, met us at our customers’ home to chat about design!  Portico contacted us a couple of weeks ago requesting a green room to run in their March issue, so this is the first one that popped into mind!  Then we started thinking…. “Do they mean eco-friendly green or the color green?”  They did indeed mean the COLOR green, so we knew we had the perfect project for them to showcase!  As Daphe worked her magic behind the lens, Amanda talked to Lisa and the homeowner about the purpose and concept behind the beautiful design.  Here is a peek behind the scenes of the photo shoot.  We can’t wait to see the finished project! 🙂

The art above the Clifton sectional is by Trevor, one of the many talented artists represented at View Gallery.  His color palette and style are always so much fun!

All of the fabrics you see here (minus the Adler throw) can be easily spot cleaned with soap and water.  How perfect for a kids’ hangout room, right?!

Such a fun color scheme! This makes us want to be a kid all over again…

The orange Mottega lamp adds so much to the space.

Fun Jonathan Adler accessories and books accent the whole room!

 This entertainment console (and the bookshelf, not pictured) are from a very cool and modern company called Blu Dot.  They make some great looking furniture!
