PInk Party!

Community and Boston, Events and Fundraisers
Ok folks, it's party time. Tonight is the night to come out and party with us. Join us at the Framingham Circle Furniture for a wild night! Champagne, chocolate, raffle prizes of jewelry, candles, spa items...what more could a gal want? Well, for one thing to wipe out breast cancer! In the meantime, organizations like The Ellie Fund, who help people who are dealing with breast cancer, are SUPER important for the good work they do, so all proceeds from our Pink Party go directly to The Ellie Fund. See you tonight. Oh, and by the way, men are totally invited! In my opinion, any real man can pull off a good, pink tie and wear with confidence. Don't you agree?

Build It Green!

Community and Boston, Green Design
Last year at the d2e (that's the down to earth convention in Beantown) we met Kim and started talking to her about her BIG project. She was in the midst of building a "green" home. Since Circle Furniture sells eco-friendly upholstery and green furniture we were so interested in what went into building a green home (and furnishing it as well!). So we want you to meet Kim and hear her story. It's pretty cool! Our family is building a green house. What started as a quest to build our dream home on the RI coast became a mission in educating and helping homeowners realize what living sustainably and conserving our planet’s resources really means.  We bought the one-acre property located along Narragansett in August of 2005, after two years of attempting to remediate a serious mold problem and a…

How Time Flies

Community and Boston, Events and Fundraisers
I can't believe it's already that time of year again. No, I'm not talking about the holidays or the dreaded "Black Friday" shopping mayhem that occurs every November. I'm talking pink. As in party. As in the Circle Furniture 4th Annual Pink Party. This is one of our all-time favorite events of the year at at Circle and we are so excited this year to be hosting the "Girls Night Out" charity event at our beautiful Framingham showroom. All the proceeds from this fundraiser go to The Ellie Fund, a non-profit organization we partner with that improves the health and welfare of women and families undergoing breast cancer treatment in Massachusetts. So here's just a little teaser. Dessert, champagne, lots of exciting raffle prizes from local fabulous businesses. October 29th. Just put…

What a Night

Community and Boston, Events and Fundraisers
Ok, so I'm not starved for fun things to do on a random Thursday night. I mean, there is so much to do in this awesome city of ours. Am I right? Yep. Boston is like better than ever. So many fabulous restaurants, tons of great music, hundreds of local art venues.  So last night was Thursday. Where was I? At the Libby Langdon talk and book-signing at Circle Furniture. Ok, I was part of team that organized the event. But I would have been there in a heartbeat even if I had nothing to do with the furniture industry. Libby was as charming as ever. Her slide show and presentation was thoughtfully put together, chock-full of tips on how to really love your living space.  As I was driving home last night I was…

More Than a Bike Ride

Community and Boston
That's what is on the Rodman Ride for Kids homepage - "More than just another bike ride". We know it's true. So what is it you ask? "The Rodman Ride is an umbrella matching gift charity raising funds for youth-focused social service agencies in Massachusetts". That's how they describe it. But I describe it as a blast of a ride! Tis' the season, once again, for us to pull out the spandex shorts and the brightly colored Circle Furniture bike shirts and get on those bikes. Team Circle is happy to be riding again this year on Saturday, September 26th. So ride with us if you'd like, sponsor the ride if you fancy, or just come cheer us on if you're inspired. Hopefully it will be a gorgeous fall day we can…

So Much To Do, So Little Time

Community and Boston, Designers, Events and Fundraisers
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…
