Get to Know: Society Social
Comments Off on Get to Know: Society Social

The holiday season is officially upon us! We couldn’t think of a better time to get to know one of our newest brands in the shop who’s core belief is that life is a party: Society Social. Let’s find out more about this great brand!


Roxy, the founder of Society Social, has literally been around furniture her entire life. Growing up in and around her parent’s furniture factory in the Philippines, it’s not a surprise that she started a furniture company of her own! Society Social started with a collection of bar carts



Then transformed into a multi-product business, including sofas




Accent, lounge & dining chairs




Stools, ottomans & tables




And even mirrors and pillows




We love that the furniture and the business is, as Roxy put it, “all inspired by a love of a shared celebration”.  All of the furniture is made right here in NC, so that makes us love them even more 😉 Most of their products are customizable with a variety of paints and fabrics to choose from, making it easy to create something that lets your personality shine through.


There’s so much more to see on their website if you’re interested, and we hope you’ll stop by to see our stock of Society Social goodies!

Laundry Room Inspiration
Comments Off on Laundry Room Inspiration

As much as we may hope & dream, there’s really no way around having to do laundry. This is an essential chore that is key to keeping up our cleanliness. Doing laundry doesn’t have to be dreaded, though. If it has to be done, it may as well be done in a space that is enjoyable to be in, right? We think so, and because of this, we’ve compiled a list of stylish, functional laundry rooms that takes the chore right out of washing & folding clothes! Take a look at the spaces below:

Having a surface above your washer/dryer is great for storing detergents and folding clothes.

For those of us who don’t have a large space in our home for a full-sized laundry room, here are a few compact spaces that work well & still look great:

Housing your washer/dryer in a closet is a great idea if you don’t have a designated laundry room in your home:

Get to Know: Hawkins New York
Comments Off on Get to Know: Hawkins New York

This week we’re excited to introduce a new brand that we’ve recently started carrying called Hawkins New York. Let’s find out more about them:


Hawkins NY is a curated lifestyle brand based out of, you guessed it, New York. They design their own products, but also work with other designers to help them get their work out to the market. This is important because a lot of designers may be unable to find the most suited manufacturers for their products otherwise.

The Hawkins NY team is experienced in dealing with producers all over the world, so they know which products should be made where and with which manufacturers they should be made by. This takes that long and potentially difficult process of choosing a manufacturer out of the equation and allows the designers to focus just on creating innovative designs.


They carry a wide variety of products, from glass/dinnerware:



to lighting



to quilts/throws



to really cool candlestickscandle


to rugs (we carry these ‘Shapes Rugs’ in all colors in the shop!)



to linen tea towels (we carry these in the shop, as well!)


and lots more! Come check out the Hawkins New York products that we have in the shop, and you can see everything else they carry on their website. Have a happy Thursday!
