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.
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,

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
Thanks for listening,

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.

Nikita Indoor Outdoor convertible furniture is happy to announce we’ll be taking part in the Otsego County Conservation Assoc. and Wildlife Learning Co. Earth Festival 2010 on Saturday, April 10 at Milford Central School.
Earth Festival 2010 offers a variety of interactive, environmental education opportunities and seminars ($10 pre-registration for any/all seminars) on topics pertaining to Renewable Energy, Green Home Renovation, Zero Waste/Local Solid Waste and Natural Gas Drilling.
Nikita will be part of the Vendor Fair/Earth Festival Exhibits from 11am to 3pm. Admission is free to these exhibits, where you’ll find children’s activities, special recycling collection and at our space, an opportunity to “just lean back” and try our convertible sofabed or chaise.
How does leaning back in our sofabed fit with Earth Day? Nikita Indoor Outdoor furniture is locally made right here in Otsego County, upstate NY. We embrace the environmental concepts of sustainability, renewability and zero waste in production.
Nikita Convertibles are made of 100% solid hardwood, itself a renewable resource. The wood is clear, beautiful and naturally strong. All the wood we use comes from an FSC Certified Mill and is FSC controlled.
Our system by which we produce our furniture is a study in hyper-efficiency. All the less than perfect pieces of wood that do not “make the cut” are burned in our energy efficient wood stove, keeping us warm throughout the long upstate New York winter. The wood shavings are given to local farmers for animal bedding. That leaves nothing behind except beautiful solid hardwood furniture that is built to serve a lifetime.
So you will feel good relaxing in our furniture as you celebrate Earth Day and every day, for that matter.
See you in Milford on April 10,
