"A Brief Encounter with Perfection"

Monday, August 04, 2014

Thank you to Simple Things Blog for mentioning our Edith sofa in their recent article:

 

"Stuff rolls through our dock doors every day, really cool stuff. We all stand and ogle it and wish it was ours, and I guess, for a short time at least, it is – until one of you comes in and gives it a home. But this sofa, it was a custom order – which means it comes and goes without giving us time to enjoy it. It caused quite a stir when it rolled into the warehouse.

This is not one you see very often – a leather upholstered chesterfield, in the most amazing leather you’ve ever seen. It’s a Cisco Brothers sofa – they call it Edith (if you want to see the tye-dye version of Edith, take a gander at this previous post – we loved this one too.) It’s a remarkable piece of furniture on its own, but man, when you slap some leather on it, it becomes a work of art. It’s a classic. It’s perfect. It’s Brideshead Revisited meets Downton Abbey meets… well, something else really cool.

We hardly had time to unwrap it before they were coming to pick it up. In fact, these pictures were taken right on our front porch while a team of delivery guys stood behind me, fingers tapping, waiting to put it in their truck. We watched it go with heavy hearts.

Now, don’t worry, this little story has a happy ending. We loved this sofa so much that we may have ordered one just like it for our showroom – one we will get to have for a spell. We have to wait for it though. It will be a while before it appears at our back door – this level of perfection takes time."

Cisco Brothers: Live from High Point Market

Monday, 23 April 2012



Los Angeles-made furniture and accessories from Cisco Brothers is always a highlight at High Point Market. A bit off the beaten path at Mill Village, High Point, North Carolina, the large industrial-styled showroom is packed to the gills with sustainable furniture that is both sophisticated and eco-conscious. Cisco Brothers have made a name for themselves using vintage materials and giving them new life, like this season's over-dyed burlap canvas used for upholstery and pillows.


HOUSE BEAUTIFUL'S NEWELL TURNER RALLIES FOR AMERICAN FURNITURE

HOUSE BEAUTIFUL'S NEWELL TURNER RALLIES FOR AMERICAN FURNITURE

Home decor arrives on Capitol Hill Tuesday, when Newell Turner, editor-in-chief of House Beautiful, and Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) will hold a Washington press conference to encourage consumers to buy American-made home products in order to stimulate the economy and boost job growth.

Though 227,000 jobs were added to the economy in February,according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the national unemployment rate still stands at a staggering 8.3 percent. Turner, Hagan and leading members of the furniture manufacturing industry hope to expand the American-made home furnishings business to create more U.S. jobs. Worldwide, home decor is a multibillion-dollar market.

The domestic furniture industry itself is relatively small, but Hagan says it has a notable impact on American jobs, especially in her home state of North Carolina.

"Our state has a rich history in the furniture industry, and I am working to do everything I can to support and keep those jobs here in America," Hagan tells Stylelist Home in an email. "Many Americans buy American products as a way to support our economy as it recovers, and furniture is no exception."

"There's no better time than ever to promote American industries," Turner says. Moreover, he adds, "There's nothing more important than creating a home that makes you feel good and safe."

To strengthen his call for American support of domestic products, Turner is planning to discuss the findings of a new survey conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs, which questioned 1,000 adults about their furniture preferences and shopping habits. Some 91 percent of participants said they would choose to buy American-made furniture over products manufactured abroad. However, almost half of those surveyed either had recently bought foreign-made products or were unsure of their purchased item's origin. These findings suggest there is huge potential for growth for the American furniture industry.

With international retailers like IKEA offering competitive low prices, we understand why buyers might still opt for non-American-made products. Plus, international retailers employ a substantial number of U.S. workers. But Turner says there are affordable options made right here in the United States.

Additionally, there is the "strong unquestioning level of quality" of American furniture ensured by federal safety regulations, Turner argues, noting that even the Chinese want American-made furniture "because they know the quality is guaranteed."

If the quality and accessibility of American furniture have not persuaded you, there's also the environment to consider. "From a green perspective, you're lowering the carbon footprint of things," Turner says because U.S.-made furniture doesn't have to travel as far to your home.

Turner's efforts for American-made furniture don't end with the Tuesday press conference. The April issue of House Beautiful features the growing furniture and design sector in Southern California, with brands likeCisco BrothersElite Leather and William Haines Designs (the company founded by a former silent movie actor) shipping products across the country.

Although we agree that buying American-made anything is important to our economy, we believe the largest obstacle to buying locally remains the price. Budget is often the single biggest factor when it comes to choosing furniture. So although we may want the gorgeous coffee table handcrafted in California and made with locally harvested wood, if our budget doesn't allow it, we may just stick to our $20 Ikea Lack table ... for now.
