Yesterday, we showed you a few snaps of our team’s latest trip to High Point Market, and today, we’ve got more!

One of the stand-out showrooms Lisa, Marty, Todd, and Sunny visited was the Tommy Mitchell showroom! His work was absolutely stunning, as always!

So cool, isn’t it?!

One of our team’s favorite things about this year’s market was the lighting. There was some incredible lighting, including Kelly Wearstler’s brand new collection for Visual Comfort!

Inside The Orange Box: Outdoor Favorites

25
JULY
2014

Today’s Orange Box is all about outdoor favorites. There are so many beautiful lines of outdoor furniture and fabrics these days that it’s hard to know where to begin even thinking! Since a southern fall sticks around a little bit longer than fall in other parts of the country, we think now is as good a time as any to spruce up your outdoor and still have plenty of time (and great evening temperatures) to enjoy it!

Inside The Orange Box // www.alwayssummerblog.com

Let’s see what our designers are loving as far as outdoor right now!

>> Lead Designer Lisa Palmer <<

Always use 100% acrylic fabrics of course. They are colorfast, washable and bleachable and take the abuse our southern weather can dish out. A comfortable swivel chair is a must. Maybe several! Somehow human beings love to move, and I find that swivel chairs, expecially outdoor when we are at our most relaxed, are the perfect chair. The Lee Industries Outdoor Collection has several very comfortable upholstered swivel options and tons of 100% acrylic fabrics to choose from. Four grouped together facing each other with a great round cocktail table is functional and super fun!

100% acryllic fabrics from Lee Industries

>> Designer Todd Prince << 

I love the Brown Jordan Drift collection. Look how pretty. That’s so me! Inspired by the 1950’s… So sleek and pretty… That is so Todd! 

Brown Jordan Drift Collection // www.summerhousestyle.com

>> Designer Elish Phares <<

There are so many more options for outdoor furniture now that it is becoming just as important in design as interior pieces! For a designer, that is very exciting. I love LEE outdoor for upholstered, and any clubcu concrete piece for casegoods. There’s nothing better than a great marriage between style and function!

Lee Industries outdoor furniture // www.summerhousestyle.com

>> Designer Katy Hines << 

Outdoor fabrics have come such a long way in the past few years, both in look and in feel, that we actually use them for interior design just as much as we do in our outdoor designs! Most of the time, you can’t even tell if a fabric is acrylic or not. One of my favorite lines is Link Outdoor. Great textures and patterns!

>> Designer Lindsey Townsend <<

I love all of our outdoor lines for many different reasons, but currently I am loving the “Mood Daybed” by Janus et Cie. It has a very unique and updated look.  It would be amazing under a covered area near the pool.  Great place for napping!

>> Designer Sunny Holliday <<

Currently, my favorite outdoor collection is the Brown Jordan Marin collection by designer Michael Berman. This is truly a stunning collection! The threading details on the gorgeous teak frames are of a UV-resistant yacht cord. The pieces are very welcoming and cozy, and can even be used indoors!

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!

SummerHouse and Lee Industries Give Back

30
JUNE
2014

When we heard about Lee Gives Back, a special month-long event that Lee Industries is putting on during July, we were reminded of why we love this company so much! Not only does Lee produce beautiful, high-quality upholstery, but they care about loving on local dealers and the communities with which these dealers work.

During the month of July, they’ve given each dealer the chance to choose a charity to give back a portion of their proceeds. SummerHouse has chosen Wounded Warrior Project as our charity, so 10% of all of our Lee Industries sales during the month of July will go towards this noteworthy organization!

SummerHouse and Lee Industries give back to Wounded Warrior Project during July 2014 // www.alwayssummerblog.com

Throughout the month, we’ll highlight a few of our favorite Lee products as well as a little more about why we chose Wounded Warrior Project as our charity.

We look forward to working with you in the coming month on furnishing your home with beautiful upholstery all while giving back to a well-deserving charity.

Thank you for your business and support!!

GIVE & GET Coat Drive for Stewpot Community Services

02
DECEMBER
2013

As you might remember reading in our post from last week about the upcoming Christmas Open House at The Township (which we hope you can come to- it’s Thursday!), we are doing another coat drive this year!

The drive will run from December 5th (the day of the Open House) until December 19th, and just to make things a little more exciting, we’re giving away two Lee Industries chairs in the process!

Do we have your attention yet?! Keep reading…

SummerHouse Coat Drive

We’ve cleverly entitled this year’s event the GIVE & GET COAT DRIVE because when you give, you get the chance to win! For each coat you bring us to give to Stewpot, you get one entry into the drawing for these beautiful chairs! (Did we mention they’re from one of our most esteemed vendors, that they’re leather, and that they’re swivel gliders?! SERIOUSLY!)

Donate a coat, enter to win one of TWO of these chairs!

Every coat earns one entry, so if you bring ten coats, you get to put your name in the drawing ten times! Sounds pretty great, right?! (We do ask that the mens, womens, or childrens coats you bring are in new or gently used condition.)

We hope to see you December 5th for the Open House (or anytime during the two weeks after that) with an arm full of coats to drop off! Once the drive is over on 12/19, we’ll draw the two winners on 12/20, so be sure you don’t miss the chance to be a part of our biggest giveaway to date!

For more information about our coat drive, please don’t hesitate to give us a call! (601-853-4445) And for more information about the Christmas Open House, CLICK HERE!

Neutrals + Blues

2013

Last week we talked about how busy Todd and Tina have been lately with several big projects, and we’re here to share the second of the two big installs they’ve had recently! (If you missed the blog post about their big outdoor install, check it out here!)

This install isn’t 100% done, but it’s looking so great that we couldn’t help but share a few photos! We’ll have more in the near future when all of the finishing touches have been added!

Designer Todd Prince says he loved working on this home and helping create a relaxing, inviting atmosphere with his selections. The foyer is beautifully detailed with a piece of art from View Gallery and a completely custom entry table. (Todd had the table built, the skirt custom made, and the custom stencil applied!)

Design by SummerHouse // Ridgeland, MS

The keeping room in this home is filled by a Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams sectional, Lauren Lachance artwork, and a fantastic Club Cu concrete table. The Lee chair in the corner is also a beautiful, soft touch! So pretty!

Design by Todd Prince | SummerHouse, Ridgeland, MS Design by Todd Prince | SummerHouse, Ridgeland, MSThis Lee Industries sofa, Mottega lamps, and Hickory Chair side tables are the perfect start to this living room! The custom Kerry Joyce pillows add just the right amount of color.

Design by Todd Prince | SummerHouse, Ridgeland, MSIn the breakfast area of the home, Todd had a custom table made and surrounded it with Artesia chairs. All of the tabletop is from SummerHouse, and we’re all in love with the Lauren Barksdale landscape hung on the wall!

Lastly, we bring you the master bedroom! This cozy, restful, spa-like retreat was created to be a get-away from everyday life. The custom bedding, Kerry Joyce pillows and Mr. Brown lamps beautifully accent the Vanguard uphostered headboard the Compendium Vanguard side tables.

Who wouldn’t feel relaxed in this home?! Great work Todd. You nailed it, yet again!
