We’ve been working on a new catalog update for several months now, adding new prodcuts, new pages, updating text and images. It’s not our favorite thing to do, we’ll admit, so we are very glad it’s done. We do love to see it finished though, hot off the press. Even though we’ve been looking at the images, text and pages for weeks (okay, months) it all seems new when the printer delivers them to us.
This time around we worked with talented graphic designer, AJ, to add new products and new pages to the existing catalog (originally created for us by Bill’s sister, Jill). He stepped in as our art director on our photo shoot, designed the new pages for us (squeezing lots of new products into a little bit of new page space), updated and photo-corrected many of our older photos and proofed it all with the printer before it went to press. Our new photos were taken by Chris at CA Smith Photography. He always does a brilliant job for us and is so easy to work with. The catalog was printed by JS McCarthy. (We work with Bill at JS McCarthy, who also has a delicious side business, The New England Brisketeers, in case you’re hungry) As is always the case, they were fast and efficient and the catalogs look beautiful.

A few of the new items you’ll find in our catalog are the Colby Stools, the Arris Sofa and the new Gates Desk. There are several new dining tables, new occasional tables and a new bed too. We love the dramatic image of the Rivers Waterfall Console Table on the cover.
Of course, along with the updated catalog comes an updated price list. Our new prices will be effective on August 11th. The prices on our website will be fully updated by then. If you have an order in mind, take advantage of the “old” prices this week. If you have any question regarding price, just give us a shout.
And don’t forget to request your copy. We’ll send it to you right away.
