Let's face it..... there are plenty of places to shop for home furnishings today. In fact the internet has become quite the playground for that.
For a "brick and mortar" store to be successful they have to have a great product and good customer service. In my opinion Mitchell Gold has that. Every time I visit to scout for a job or just to see what is new the associates are very helpful offering me tear sheets, fabric samples and help with measurements.
Taking it one step further, I always receive a hand written note [not an email!] thanking me for coming in whether I purchased or not.
That is something.
The other day I was in and took some shots of their fall collection.
This sofa made me fall in love with gold again. The tuxedo arm 2 cushion sofa has such a classic style and placed against the blue wall with cream accents was really sophisticated.
Love the tufting...but maybe not if you have kids...too many places for crumbs to hide :)
And then the ever classic navy....with a slight hollywood arm and the silver nail heads.
Did you know that Mitchell Gold cushions have a lifetime warranty? Yep. My slipcovered sofa and chairs in my den are MG and I have had them at least 10 years.

Here are the chairs. I have 2 sets of slipcovers, white and a flax linen that I change to in the fall. I have washed the white ones at least 30 times or more and they are just now showing some wear. In fact I was in there looking at some fabric samples for new covers but let's keep that on the down low OK?
Enough about me....if you don't love this...raise your hand. In fact this would be great for kids....you can't really hurt hide right? After all cows live outside and roll in the mud.
More kid friendly leather....plus a tight back sofa. Also good with kids.
Cool bug art.
Love a modern wing.
Despite tough economic times Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams started MG in 1989. Their 400,000 sq ft warehouse located in North Carolina [made in the USA baby!] has an employee gym, health conscious cafe, and on site day care center. They support 12 non profit partners and they love dogs!
They also distribute their furniture to Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma, Bloomingdales and Restoration Hardware. Don't get me started on RH. They have customer no-service and have really just become a showroom to order from. Nothing is ever in stock anymore. I could go on.......
MG is not paying me to write this but sometimes I think it is just nice to recognize when a company gets it right.
Our dk Gallery lunch/mixer was so much fun....I took pictures so I will post on that soon.
Regarding the wax I used on my books...a reader told me a much easier thing to use are glue sticks! Just more proof that I am not a crafty DIY girl.
