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.
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,
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,
Hope you’ve had a chance to meander by the new
Nikita Indoor Outdoor furniture store at 508 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY. You’ll discover a new kind of furniture for every environment: living room, bedroom, den, mancave, porch, patio or poolside– with a patented design that has wheels and reclines gently down from sofa to bed by just leaning back. Ahhh, Nikita’s website is aptly named www.JustLeanBack.com.
Nikita Indoor Outdoor convertible furniture design is a unique concept in comfort, durability and versatility. Our sofabeds, loveseats and chaise lounges are sleek, modern and minimalistic yet incredibly strong. They’re simple to convert from sofa to bed and vice versa.
Whether your apartment is small space challenged or you’re living the loft life, this uber comfortable, multi-functional furniture will fit your needs. But don’t take my word for it, come on down to 508 Broadway, relax and just lean back in a Nikita sofa and leave behind the day’s stresses (so relaxing, we’ve had people almost doze off).
We have fun showing how easy it is to transform your living space with Nikita Indoor Outdoor convertible furniture. We’ve started this blog to showcase our furniture in real home and outdoor settings (porch, patio or pool), provide design tips and who knows where our ideas and imagination will take us. We’re the new store in town and we’d love to hear from you; we welcome comments, questions and suggestions for blog topics. Or stop by, say Hi and let us know you found us in cyberspace. That will surely make our day.
Thanks for listening,
P.S. Nikita convertibles are made of 100% solid hardwood, a renewable resource, and are made locally here in upstate New York State, made in U.S.A. They’re sustainable and all wood we use is from FSC Certified Mills, so they qualify as green building materials.
P.S.S. Can’t wait to blog more and show pics of my Nikita sofabed, loveseat and chair gracing my one-room schoolhouse home.
