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,
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.
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!

Thanks for listening,
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.
