tap tap :: is this thing on?
young people, furbish is moving.
we have rented a tremendous old industrial warehouse in downtown raleigh and we're going to attempt something that is so fabulous in scale and donkeytastic in scope that it's likely to change the entire ballgame. (if i was a rapper, this would be lyric worthy)
in the fall, we're moving into 3500 square feet of concrete floors, brick walls, wooden beamed ceilings and turn of the century windows.
we hope this flagship store becomes a mecca for design lovers and trend setters all over the country.
we're going to have art installations, inspiration boards bigger than a whale, pink sofas, glitter on the floor (literally! ke$ha - do you really have glitter on your floor?), crazy wallpaper you've only dreamed about, awe-inspiring vignettes, walls and walls of custom pillows, artwork that might complete you, so much more loved up vintage furniture, lucite goodness, golden nuggets hanging from the ceiling, lacquer, chrome, bamboo, spots and flecks and stripes and velvet sofas. there will be more jewelry, we're adding a carefully edited selection of clothing, a pink silk dressing room, whole walls of designer fabric, new lighting must-have accessories for your home and yummy old rugs. plus we'll be able to most more events, classes and general get togethers where we could just waller in piles of pillows.
possibly not as exciting for you, but positively THRILLING to me: i'll have an office of my own, a huge organized storage room, a wireless printer!, a full time furniture painter, a KITCHEN!, a parking lot with 25 spaces, and rowdy can romp from one end of the space to the other in sheer dog delight.
i'm putting every ounce of myself into this endeavor and i hopehopehope you'll make a plan to come visit once we open the new doors this fall!
