Stop By Today!

Community and Boston, Events and Fundraisers
We're excited to continue our quest to showcase local artists living and working in the communities around where we work and play. This month stop by the Cambridge Circle Furniture showroom to see the beautiful and inspiring artwork of local artist Diane Novetsky. "Diane Novetsky is an abstract painter of lyrical landscapes that combine a sensuous, textural surface with striking luminosity and depth. Her work evolves intuitively from dreams, half-forgotten memories, and fleeting glimpses of everyday life.  Dianes paintings are built up in layers–like the strata of the earth–using a variety of acrylic based mediums, which echo the gritty qualities of natural sand and stone. Some of her work employs the motif of an intimate landscape to explore the ephemeral nature of life. The beauty of shifting light, the passage of time and the elusiveness…

Time for Us to Say Thanks!

Community and Boston
Tis' the season for me to get mushy - I can't help it. Trust me, I'm usually the girl that hears a Christmas song on the radio on November 15th and thinks "Oh, please! Not yet...Bah humbug". Then I see the Christmas toy commercials, or the car commercials and think "When is someone going to give me a Mercedes with a big red bow on it"? Again, bah humbug. But then... something starts creeping in right after Thanksgiving. We have our family Thanksgiving gathering, you know...eat too much, drink too much. My brothers get the kids outside to play soccer while my sister and I drink wine in peace and quiet. We laugh watching my nephew and brother perform their annual "dance-off". My mom let's go of having the house…

Managers We Love!

Designers
Meet Cindy, the manager of our Acton Circle Furniture... "As a true lover of everything that works within the home, I found my true passion during my high school years directed towards the all-inclusive “Home Environment”. Somehow the concept of putting colors and textures together with different woods and metals in varying sizes was all I could think about. After completing my degree in Interior Design thirty-something years later, I am still as addicted as I was in my teen years, and the urge gets stronger each year with every new fascinating accessory and style available today. What I like about Circle Furniture is that we are a "Fashion Forward" furniture company…in other words, we are always right on top of all the trends available today with color, design and style. I love…

What’s the Buzz?

Buzz
From the Queen Bee herself...as Peggy prepares for the "Sustainabilty Summit" that she will sit on a panel for next week, she has also prepared a more, as she says, "sappy" What's the Buzz for November. Well, I say bring it on...with the holidays here, what better time is there to bring out the sappiness. Enjoy! I can’t believe it; we’ve come to that time of the year when the days will disappear faster than we ever thought possible. I don’t know how it happens but every year as soon as Thanksgiving approaches it seems like we all begin a complete stampede to the finish line...aka...the end of the holiday season. Why do we need to fit so much living into such a short period of time? Holiday parties, shopping…
