Ready for everybody’s favorite class subject? It's Show & Tell! We just got back from the High Point Furniture Market and have a sneak peek at some of our favorite looks coming to The Black Goose Design. Take a look!
SNEAK PEEK #1: Outdoor Furniture for 2021-22
Whether you’re planning for this season or next spring, it’s always a good time to think about outdoor living space updates. These days, outdoor space truly is an extension of the home’s living space, and this new dining space from Universal Furniture absolutely supports that fab philosophy.
SNEAK PEEK #2: New Customizable Pieces
For many, “customizable” means upholstery, which is certainly the case... But not the only case. Did you know you can actually customize the finish on select wood pieces as well? This includes these beauties!
Of course, we always adore a look at what's coming in the world of customizable upholstery, too! Look at this show-stopping set-up from Wesley Hall!
This little cutie of theirs sure caught our eye!
As did this serene Wesley Hall space! Nap time, anyone?
For those who love leather, the options are impeccable!
SNEAK PEEK #3: New Storage Pieces
The storage love continues with this look that’s actually TWO cabinets, positioned side by side, creating the illusion of one statement piece. You know what that means, right? You can also divide it into two separate pieces for smaller spaces and more versatility. Love!
SNEAK PEEK #4: Color to Come
It wouldn’t be a Market show & tell without some color conversation. Blues will remains a classic favorite, but the temps are certainly rising. We were enamored by the beautiful earth tones on display, including shades of red, orange, brown, and green. Here are a few favs from Wesley Hall:
This red sofa is so warm and inviting!
Of course, when you see this inviting design by Universal Furniture, it's easy to see why blue will forever hold our hearts. It's wonderful that whether you prefer warmer or cooler hues, there's something divine to look forward to.
OKAY, LET’S TALK SHOP
Show & Tell is more fun, but we realize clients are also interested in order lead times, especially on upholstered pieces (sofas, chairs, sectionals, beds, etc.). Like much of the world right now, the furniture industry is currently experiencing longer-than-is-typical delays. Believe it or not, this has to do with the ice storms that hit Texas and Louisana. Remember that? The extended power outages that resulted shut the foam-producing plants down for days and made it slow for them to get back online. The outcome is a severe shortage in the foam used to pad seating. You can read more about this here.
Our recent High Point Market visit included a special behind-the-scenes tour of the Wesley Hall factory, where we saw firsthand what this impact is having on furniture production. They had row after row of gorgeous, in-production pieces. Patterns have been cut and sewn, frames have been handcrafted and assembled… they’re just waiting for foam. Without that key element, production can’t be completed. Building materials are at a deficit across the board, it seems, explaining other building delays, but this one has the most significant impact on the work we do.
THE GOOD NEWS!
Foam is coming in. Beautiful upholstered pieces are being produced and shipped all the time. Unfortunately, it’s at a slower rate than we’re used to. Also, we have new pieces coming onto the showroom floor all the time. You can buy many of these directly from us, resulting in little to no delay. This includes some of the eye candy in this very post. Good things… errr, make that GREAT things are coming and we want you to have them. Huzzah!
Order now! If you think you’ll want a fresh look at the beginning of the new year, stop by today. Get the process started. The sooner, the better.
