Nancy Burke of League City, a part of the Gallery Furniture High Point Market team, wanted to show the great Gallery Furniture customers, the world's greatest customers, about a find that she came across of some gorgeous reclaimed solid wood furniture from Sarreid furnitu re in a style that is part European, part American, and all very environmentally conscious. With an eye on style and a penchant for pieces that allow the end user to do some customization of their own, these pieces (like the cocktail table shown above) are not only unique, they are solid, gorgeous, and each has a story.
Sarreid says that each piece has a story, and in some cases it appears you can make one. "What I found most interesting," said Nancy, "is that with this cocktail table made of reclaimed wood they displayed it with used wine corks inside - I think that is great and I honestly thought it came like that until they told me I could fill it with whatever I want."
"That is what I loved the most, that I could craft the piece a bit and make it mine. I liked that very, very much. I did a quick Internet search using the NHFA's Retailer Resource Center that I saw tons of stuff talking about Sarreid's that I know it will be great call if Mack and Gallery Furniture carry a line that is a bit chic and still has a green aspect to it."
More than that, apparently, was the stylish use of things such as wine barrels that Nancy found extraordinarily attractive when used as seats. Leather padding on top and still showing the type and style of grape that had been processed, the barrels become a center piece of conversation. Said Nancy "They're just gorgeous. They are cute and an innovative way to make use of something that would ultimately be destroyed because the wine maker may not have another use of it."
Chic indeed, Gallery Furniture loves to find the new and innovative, and for all the great Gallery Furniture customers who wander the store, they know they will find stylish and gorgeous lines of eco-friendly pieces such as solid mango wood dining tables Home Trends & Design of Austin, TX, as well as solid wood country style furniture such as those found by Groovy Furniture with their commitment to sustainability.
And along with a commitment to sustainability comes style - because the customer comes first and the Gallery Furnitrue customer is style-conscious at all price points. And this line provided a host of pieces that are very stylish indeed and even construct furniture that reproduces old antiques they feel are stylish and should be brought back, such as the pieces shown below:
