We are officially back in the swing of things here at SGD. One nice thing that came out of the Covid Quarantine was a surge of Virtual Clients. I suppose all those hours of staring at the same rooms in your home and coming to the realization that you really hate that sofa inspired people to do something about it. In addition, we've ramped back up on current projects, are planning some photo shoots, and have some exciting new projects to share with you in the coming weeks.
And as much as we love Wayfair, West Elm and the like, we also think it is important to support smaller home furnishings brands. So, the down time has also given us the chance to find new shopping resources and we are excited to share some of those with you in this post.
Custom upholstery can be crazy expensive. With their range of over 120 fabrics including designer collaborations with Scalamandre and Peter Som, The Inside makes custom upholstery affordable. Their zero-inventory supply chain and water based digital printing make their process eco-friendly as well. AND delivery times are in a matter of weeks, not months. So, now that chair you love can be a one-of-a-kind treasure that you can say you designed.
The first thing we fell in love with about Jayson Home is their amazing assortment of vintage furniture and accessories. Up until now, our "go-to" for vintage home decor has been Chairish, so it's nice that there's another game in town to have as a resource. What started as a retail store in Chicago over 20 years ago has grown to a significant online business yet with the customer service standard you expect from a local retailer. If there was ever a reason to road trip to Chicago, this would be one of them.
With brands like Jonathan Adler, Seletti, Orla Kiely, and Missoni Home, Amara showcases the best of luxury home brands. We also saw pieces carried by our friends at Scout Design in Dallas (go buy from them though), so when you are looking for a special gift or an amazing show-stopper, this is the place to go. Their private label brand, A by Amara offers curated collections twice a year in addition to the Essentials Collection with elegant basics for every home. Based in the UK, but shipping to the US is free with orders over $175.
