Meeting Angelo Surmelis at Vegas Market

Meeting Angelo Surmelis at Vegas Market

So how many of you are big HGTV fans like myself? I’m hoping a lot of you are! This past market I got a rare opportunity to meet Angelo Surmelis from HGTV at one of our manufacturers showroom. He is going to have a beautiful and affordable line of casegoods from Southern Enterprises (SEI) in the angelo:HOME brand. They have that “napa style” look to them and a at great price retailing for $299 or less. We are going to have them on furniturecrate.com this spring! In addition to the accent furniture pieces, I hope to have his angelo:HOME upholstery line also this spring.
I will say, Angelo is a very down to earth person with a ton of energy, I left the meeting being so excited on his new furniture line, I can’t wait to get some of his items myself! Check it out:

Congrats to Bobby our Social Media Coordinator

Congrats to Bobby our Social Media Coordinator

In the last year we have grown by leaps and bounds in the Social Media universe.  We try to be active in everything from Buzz to YouTube.  Of course we couldn’t have done all of this without our Social Media Coordinator Bobby!  Bobby has helped us become more social media friendly and more active in the furniture and interior design community.  That’s why we are very proud to hear that Bobby has been selected to be on one of the Detroit teams for the Chevy’s SXSW competition.

Bobby’s team will be driving a Chevy vehicle from  Detroit Michigan to Austin Texas for the SXSW Interactive festival. Along the way Bobby and his team will be competing in challenges against other teams while documenting every single moment via Social Media.  We wish Bobby and his team good luck and if you wish to read about his adventures, watch for updates on his team’s website.

Hey everyone!
Sorry we’ve been a little quiet lately but we have been so busy working on new product just for you! We saw a lot of good stuff at market last month. I’d like to share with you some of the HOT TRENDS we are seeing and going to be able to offer you very shortly.

We saw a lot of that “Restoration Hardware” Look, an antiqued oak/pickled/white washed aged look in wood products, and for every room of the house. We can’t seem to find the right word for it it, but once we do, we’ll have to create a collection around it!
