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.
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.

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,
