WELCOME TO HOMESTEAD 12

Posted on January 31, 2014 by Homestead Staff | 3 Comments

 

It's already been a busy 2014 for us at Homestead.

We filled up the shop with new product, upgraded our website, repainted our front door and did a minor kitchen remodel.

Living the American Dream.   

And now to end the month on a high note, we present to you... a pretty legit showroom tour. We need to have an open house here very soon. We've gotta show this place off more.

Here's to a great year! Enjoy the tour.

Thanks for stopping by! Let us know what you think.

PHOTOGRAPHY DAY

2014

We can already tell it's going to be a great year! Even the more mundane days are going to be worth remembering.

Today, a not too special day, is photography day at Homestead. Our two main challenges are light and space. Because we're working with natural light and live in Seattle we don't have many usable hours in the winter. And because our showroom is our photography studio, let's just say it's not a day that we would usually schedule a showroom visit. 

Proof.

Fortunately, getting to show off new product makes up for how crazy it is in here. Better yet, this means a new showroom tour. First one of the year! We're pumped.

2014: Even the mundane is wonderful.

Happy Holidays!

We're wrapping up 2013 with a shop-wide sale and our favorite showroom tour yet. If you live in Seattle and haven't made it over here now is the time

No lines, no Christmas music, no insane parking. It's a wonderful life. 

If you don't live in Seattle and want to give an HS gift for the holidays we just might be able to make it happen. Our shipping team is the best. Let us know what you have your eye on, we'll see what we can do. 

Not exactly sure what to buy but love the shop? We have Homestead gift cards available! Finally, we know. We're feeling pretty great about it. 

We're also feeling pretty great about our new HS Collection pieces. That pair of barrel backs and the black and white floral chair. SWOON. Why can't we just keep everything?

Take a look around. If you see something you like that isn't up in the shop it's probably new. Contact us, we can get you a price and shipping quote.

We hope everyone has a lovely holiday season. See you in January and enjoy the tour!

Happy fall ya'll!

In Seattle we're seriously feeling the effects of daylight savings time. Fortunately it has inspired us to do a lot of nesting, both in our home and the shop.

If you're going to be hibernating all winter you might as well make your house its best. Then, share the love. Host dinners and brunches with friends and family. Take advantage of everyone's jovial holiday spirit and fight the SADs.

It's going to be a great season.

Our shop is looking top notch and ready for fall this week. We 're thrilled with how the addition of rugs transformed the place. We try to keep it fresh and minimal in the summer but in the fall we love love love rugs.

Rugs and lighting and indoor plants. Do this.

The second largest transformation this week were the walls. We hung some really large pieces of art, signs and flags that make it feel so much more grand in here. We're certainly thankful that we have such high ceilings to work with.

We love this house.

On with the show. As always, make an appointment to stop by if you want to see the goods in person. For everyone else out there, enjoy the tour!

Thanks for stopping by. See you next week!

WE'RE BACK!

And better than ever.

We took some time off to focus on our fall sale, which was a huge success by the way. We're excited for everyone that had a chance to take advantage of it! 

Now the shop is full of new product and looking rather dapper indeed.

We're the most excited about our custom waxed leather upholstered pieces. We rescued a pair of Knoll Saarinen Executive Arm Chairs, a Swedish Overman style sofa and a vintage medical stool from certain death or worse - life in a college apartment. These pieces are Mid Century works of art and they deserve better. Now they're upholstered in the highest quality leather out there (we got our hands on the Resto stuff folks) and they look incredible.

We feel like proud parents. Just look at that sofa. Seriously.

WAIT, THERE'S MORE.

We have a new Chesterfield chair!

From England. It's the real thing and it is comfortable. What a handsome chair. It'll be up in the shop this week along with anything else in the tour that's not listed currently.

As always if you see something you like let us know. We ship nationwide and you can visit the showroom by appointment anytime.

Enjoy the tour!

Thanks for stopping by. See you next week!

Hey folks, hope everyone is having a great week!

Our week has certainly been busy and we can give a large chunk of credit to Etsy for that. We feel very fortunate that they chose to use our black chesterfield as the cover photo for their vintage furniture section. It has brought a lot of new eyes to the shop and now the sofa is our most favorited piece of furniture to date!

This sofa is a masterpiece and deserves to have everyone swooning over it. Good for you little sofa.

We're really proud of the shop right now. It feels great to have it set up as more traditional living and dining rooms. Our favorite new pieces are definitely the Broyhill Forward 70 dresser set and the pair of green velvet chairs that we rescued from a living a sad life with fringe. We're sad to see the large drafting table go after having owned it for so long, but at least we get to see it looking particularly attractive in this week's tour.

We could brag about the shop all day but you should probably just take a look for yourself!

As always, enjoy the tour and let us know if you see anything you like.

Thanks for stopping by. See you next week!

Hello all!

Hopefully everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. We certainly did!

We planned to spend the holiday painting and organizing our office. It had become a complete nightmare and absolutely not usable. Once the office was finally cleared out and the first coat of paint was on the walls we realized that the space would be much more useful as an extension of the showroom. We were thrilled.

The expansion took up a lot of our time last week. That coupled with the fact that we never ever stop working means that I feel less guilty about skipping last week's post. Sorry, but not sorry.

The good news is the shop is so different!

I can't even list everything that we sold and added, but I will call out a couple of new favorites. The two Mid Century schoolhouse maps are amazing, the huge drafting table is regretfully for sale because of the office move as well as the insane industrial iron desk. I don't want to sell either. YOU'RE WELCOME.

The new part of the shop is going to take a little getting used to but we're excited to have the space and more importantly to have more product in stock!

As always, enjoy the tour and let us know if you see anything you like.

Thanks for stopping by. See you next week!
