Nikita Indoor Outdoor is heading to Belleayre Mountain October 9 & 10, to the Fall Festival featuring a craft fair, winter equipment and apparel sale, sky ride, German fare food, Entertainment Village, Outdoor Expo and more! The festival hours are 10 am – 5 pm. Hope to see you there, ready to lean back and discover our unique shape shifting, space saving furniture. Stop by, say hi and register for our Win the Twin Chaise Drawing to be held shortly.
Nikita Indoor Outdoor Convertible Furniture will be participating in the SARATOGA SHOWCASE OF HOMES this fall. We will be furnishing the “outdoor den” and multi-level decks of the only ALL-GREEN home, designed and built by Sustainable Designs of Saratoga Springs. This is a great honor for us and, I think, an opportunity for our customers and visitors to see our cool convertibles in a real home setting.
The showcase home address is: 3 Larkspur Court, off of Locust Grove in Greenfield Center.
3 WEEKENDS: DATES: 11 am to 5 pm, September 18,19 25,26 October 2,3
Members of our Saratoga Springs Showroom staff will be on location at the Showcase Home to demonstrate our furniture and to answer any questions. And on Saturday, September 25, Nikita himself will be at the Showcase Home.
Look forward to seeing you at the Saratoga Builders Association 2010 Showcase of Homes,
More Nikita Indoor Outdoor in the news: Cabin Life/Living Aug. 2010 & Summer 2010 Upper Hudson Valley Eco Local Living front page!
Nikita Indoor Outdoor made the front page, cover article of Upper Hudson Valley Eco-Living Summer 2010. Here’s the link to the full article. We appreciate the press and honor of being named “eco-localizer for the summer of 2010.”
We love Cabin Life Magazine and it seems the feeling is reciprocal! Our Nikita Kaliebrie Chaise (So Responsive!) was featured in the Cool Stuff : Lounging Time section of the August 2010 issue of Cabin Living.
We were fortunate enough to have “waterfront property” at the NYC Craft Fair at Lincoln Center on June 19 and 20. It was an incredibly hot 2 days – and yet our booth stayed relatively comfortable. We kept the back of the tent off so that we could feel the cool breezes wafting up from the water. It really was very lovely. It felt like a vacation spot. People kept stopping in to sit down and lean back on our Nikita Scandia Chair – they would always comment on what a fabulous spot we have – by the cool water, with the amazing sculpture and the Julliard School beyond.
BTW – somebody bought the chair.
Here’s a heads up for Binghamton area residents– you’ll be able to see Nikita Indoor Outdoor Convertible Furniture at the 26th Annual Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally, August 6, 7 and 8. We’re excited to make our first Spiedie Fest appearance among local crafters and we think you’ll be excited to see our convertible furniture demonstration and maybe even take home a Freedom Frame Convertible Sofabed. Stop by our booth and ask for our Spiedie Fest Discount Coupon to save when you visit our Oneonta, NY showroom (7 Elm Street, Oneonta, NY 607 267 4623).
Travelling downstate, we’re looking forward to taking part in the 22nd Annual Hudson Valley Garlic Festival, September 25th & 26th. Stop by and see our garlic themed sofabed, a work of art.
***NOTE FROM THE GARLIC FESTIVAL: I went in search of a cup of coffee ( declined the garlic sugar) and returned to find a gathering of friends at our booth. All had just enjoyed a garlic dish of one kind or another …hot dogs with garlic relish, soup with garlic croutons, salad with garlic dressing, raviolis with melted garlic butter and yes, garlic icecream… so friends sit close together and enjoy each other’s company …
More to come,

Cabin Life magazine showcased our outdoor Scandia Chair (white oak with Sunbrella fabric cushions) on page 37 under Cool Stuff: The Latest in Comfy Deck Seating. Here’s the article for your perusal.
Wouldn’t that chair (green cushions, upper right hand corner of magazine page) look great on the deck or porch of your Adirondack Lake George cabin? The beauty of it is you can leave it outside all summer and roll it inside for comfy fall/winter seating by the stove. So versatile, comfortable and with the ottoman you have a spare cot bed for guests in all seasons. Sleeping outside has become a reality with our indoor outdoor convertible furniture.
Stop by and say hi to Yuliya, our new Sales Associate at the Nikita Indoor Outdoor Convertibles showroom, 508 Broadway, Saratoga Springs. Yuliya attends Fashion Insititute of Technology (FIT) in New York City, has achieved an Associates Degree in Interior Design and is working toward a Bachelor’s Degree in Business.
Here’s what Yuliya has to say about Nikita Convertibles:
I came home for the summer and looked around for a job in my field of interest and was intrigued by Nikita furnishings. I’ve never seen anything like this convertible furniture design even in New York City, where you can usually find anything. Convertible furniture fills so many needs, I was immediately taken with its versatility and surprised to find it right here in Saratoga Springs.
Yuliya is happy to put her knowledge and experience to work to answer any furniture questions or help you with design decisions.
Speaking of New York City, our next road appearance will be at the American Crafts Festival at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts on the weekend of June 19-20, 2010. Hours are noon to 9:00 pm on Saturday and 10 am to 9pm on Sunday. Hope 2010 graduates who are moving to their first homes or apartments, and those seeking contemporary modern furniture and space saving solutions for indoor and outdoor living spaces will stop by and lean back and experience comfortably designed sofabeds, loveseats, chairs and chaise longues. For a preview of our furniture, visit the Nikita Indoor Outdoor website: www.JustLeanBack.com

Summer is creeping up on us, and now is the time to order those convertible sofabeds for home and “camp” to ensure they are ready for vacation season guests. Since our sofabeds, chaise lounges and chairs are custom made according to your choices of wood, finish, futon type and slip cover, we ask for 3-4 weeks lead time. (If you’re in a pinch, we sell items from our showroom floors.)
In this merry, merry month of May, we’ll be visiting upstate (Delaware County, Walton Fairgrounds) and downstate (Woodstock, New Paltz) New York demonstrating our “Just Lean Back” convertible furniture. Hope to see you at the following home/craft shows where we’ll be ready to take your orders.
Catskill Region Business Expo & Home Improvement Show
May 15, 2010 (9am-4pm) at the Walton Fairgrounds
Renewable Energy. Construction. Services. Way More. Come meet our region’s business experts from financing, insurance, construction, solar and geothermal energy, architecture, landscaping, and more. Learn ways to make your home more efficient. Take in some great workshops.
Over fifty vendors will be under the tents so come on out to Walton. Stroll their main street stores and antique shops. Grab a bit to eat. Make a day of it Saturday May 15th. Starts at 9am on the Walton Fairgrounds. (from the Great Western Catskills Tourism newsletter)
The Woodstock-New Paltz Art & Craft Fair
Memorial Day Weekend May 29-31, 2010
Special features of this Memorial Day Weekend event include wooden boat building demonstrations, alpaca fiber demonstrations and live alpaca shearings. Schedule information, directions, as well as a discount coupon for $1 off admission is found on the Quail Hollow Events website.
PLEASE NOTE: Our Oneonta, NY store will be closed on Saturday, May 29 while we’re at the Woodstock-New Paltz Craft Show. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Where’s your man cave?*
By “man cave” I mean that specially equipped male sanctuary where you kick off dust from a stressful day and relax, take a step back to reflect and do what you enjoy. Is it the spare bedroom that’s your personal sports shrine, paying homage to favorite teams, players or housing your own trophies? Or a media room where you kick back and kick butt in virtual video game worlds? Perhaps you venture outdoors and seek solace in a deck or garden environment. Or you’ve created a separate garage or shop building to pursue hobbies and play.
Nikita Indoor Outdoor creates affordable custom convertibles for every environment and the man cave is no exception. Indoors or outdoors, we’ve got what you need to just lean back and unwind. If your room does double duty as an overnight guest bedroom, our sofas, loveseats and chairs fit together as double, queen or king beds. Our furniture boldly (and easily) moves where you go–it’s on wheels. Of course we can’t leave man’s best friend out of the picture; you may customize your furniture to be pet friendly by choosing washable slip covers or a waterproof underlining.
To celebrate the opening of our Saratoga Springs store, Nikita Indoor Outdoor is giving away a chaise lounge (converts to twin bed) to one lucky person in September 2010. It would be a great addition to den or mancave.
To enter the give-away, stop by either of our store locations: 508 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY (518)796-1887 (closest to the Albany area) or 7 Elm Street, Oneonta, NY (607)267-4623 (serving Norwich, Binghamton and upstate NY towns & hamlets in between) for a demo and see our furniture in action. All you will have to do is “just lean back.”
PS We’d love seeing and posting mancave pics: e-mail them to mary@JustLeanBack.com Let’s have fun with this and see what you come up with!
*This post is part of a series on how Nikita Indoor Outdoor Convertible Furniture is perfect for every environment.
Thanks for listening,
Had an enlightening time on Saturday at Earth Festival 2010 where I was showing Nikita Indoor Outdoor convertible furniture. My “just lean back” demonstration of how EASY the Nikita Freedom style sofa reclines from sofa to bed and back again wowed a small crowd. I was a one person infomercial, wheeling the furniture around, gently leaning back and reclining the sofa to bed position while relating facts about the wood, design, and structure.
People seemed genuinely surprised at the affordability of our Freedom Frame Futon Sofabed. Naturally, everyone present for Earth Day seminars appreciated Nikita’s commitment to sustainability, and that Nikita furniture frames are locally made here in upstate New York.
Demonstrating Nikita Indoor Outdoor Furniture’s design, comfort and convertible features seems to be key to educating and energizing our market. We’re taking our furniture out to the people, and you’ll find us at farmers’ markets, homeshows and craft shows.
Next stop is Earth Day at SUNY Oneonta and then the SUNY Oneonta / Hartwick College OH Fest on April 24, Stop by and give us a holler at our 7 Elm Street, Oneonta NY store next to Mama Nina’s Pizzeria.
We’ll keep you posted on our schedule as we add events,
