Futons have evolved in thickness and plushness, whether they be a firm wool wrap or soft touch or visco coil. How do these mattresses of 8 inches or more adapt to dual duty for couches and sleeping? Joanne demonstrates a solution to breaking in a visco coil mattress so it easily converts from bed to couch. Enjoy this Youtube Nikita video.
See us at the Great Northeast Home Show in Albany, at the Times Union Center, February 11,12,13. It may still look like this outside… but it’ll be warm inside… and so much to see!
Go Reconfigure! … your room
Joanne will be giving a fun and informative seminar at the Albany Home Show. She’ll be wheeling and whirling those Nikita Chairs and Loveseats into as many shapes and sizes as she can reconfigure!
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.
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.
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.

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,
