Harpist, Karlinda Caldicott will be performing seasonal music in the Nikita Convertible Furnishings Showroom on Thursday, December 1st during the annual Victorian Streetwalk in Saratoga Springs. Come over, sit on some comfy Nikita Furniture… just lean back and listen to the most beautiful music you could ever hope to hear.
Last spring I posted about Nikita Convertibles being perfect for the “man cave” environment and asked readers to send pics of their own man caves. Here’s a response to my query, courtesy of Pat F. from Clifton Park, NY.
Pat’s man cave is furnished with a Nikita Scandia Sofabed, Chair and Ottoman of cherry wood with oil finish. The chair’s box cushions are Faux Leather (a washable fabric called Pecos). The sofabed sports a Feathertouch mattress with a slip cover of “Atomic” pattern fabric. The Scandia sofa “leans back” and converts to a full size bed (hope the game and quirky commercials aren’t snoozers!). The chair and ottoman combo make a cot size bed. The Nikita chair has our sure stop recline feature for finding the perfect lean back angle. Nice. This man cave is ready for the playoffs and the big day: Super Bowl Sunday. Hope the Jets make it! Did I mention the wall mounted flat screen TV in this basement man cave renovation? Not first on my list because I am coveting the rich cherry furniture.
Hurry on down to Nikita Convertibles at 7 Elm Street, Oneonta, NY or 508 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, and you can have furniture for your man cave ready by Super Bowl XLV (February 6, 2011). Or visit our website: JustLeanBack.com or our new Etsy Store.
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.
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.

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!
