Small Space? No Problem!

Design Inspiration, Designers
Picture it. You have a small room. You’ve been dreaming of turning it into your “perfect” home office. It has functioned as a closet for years. You know, clothes strewn over the recumbent bike. Crates you've had since college, stacked in the corner, filled with embarrassing pictures of yourself from the 80's, and old, sappy love letters from previous, ridiculous relationships. Yikes! It's time to grow up. Get organized. Experience the freedom of de-clutterizing! But wait...Where do you start? No worries, Libby can help! Join us on Thursday, September 24th, 6:30pm, at Circle Furniture's Cambridge Showroom for a fun night with Libby Langdon. Libby, star of HGTV’s, Small Space, Big Style,, will be revealing her secrets to designing small spaces and she’ll be signing books too. We’ll have wine and cheese and the event…

So Much To Do, So Little Time

Well, isn't this the best time of year? You wake up and the sun is shining. Birds are singing. At night there's no need for the air conditioners on full speed ahead while you sleep. Windows are wide open. Hmmm. Fall. We love it. Ok, so the kids are going back to school. There's that initial shock of homework instead of flashlight tag. Vacations are mostly over, so the traffic, for those of us who commute, is back to "just horrible". College students are flooding the streets moving into their new digs. Everyone is busy, busy, busy. We know how you feel. We also are CRAZY busy here at Circle. So much great stuff is going on that we want to shout it from the rooftops! First off, remember that Comfort Sleeper…

The Real Design Star

Community and Boston, Design Inspiration, Designers
A couple of years ago I worked on a Design Home in Cohasset. Circle Furniture was designing the master bedroom, living room and dining room, using furniture designed by Candice Olson. The project was labor intensive, but boy did we have fun. Why, you ask? Candice. We are lucky enough to sell a line of furniture designed by Candice Olson. If you're a fan of HGTV I'm not telling you anything you don't already know - Candice rocks! She has a show on HGTV called a Divine Design. Her furniture lines are inspiring and eclectic; a perfect fit for Circle. She also happens to be a really nice, down-to-earth person. And tall. And super funny. The best part of the story is...drum roll please... she actually came to the opening…

Small Space? No Problem.

I love my apartment. Honestly, since the first day I laid eyes on it. I live in an awesome part of Boston, close to amazing restaurants - shout out to Zon's, Ten Tables and my new fav down the road, Sophia's Grotto. Mmmmm. Anyway...although I love my place, it has, what I used to call a downfall...It's really, really small. Like so tiny, I even have a "baby" stove, as my nephew calls it. When I first moved in this presented a problem...where to put all my furniture I've collected over the years? I've tried all different layouts, never really feeling like I had found the golden ticket....or golden floor plan, as it were. This past April I had a revelation. I was sitting at a breakfast in High Point,…
