Pretty In Pink

Events and Fundraisers, Media
Another October rolls around and its time for another great in store event at Circle Furniture's Cambridge location. The fifth annual Pink Party was the biggest turnout yet and we raised over five thousand dollars. Many thanks to those who rallied the extra leg to help put it together, Sarah, Ralph, Moise, Renee, Jonathan, Stephanie, Peg, Rich, Harold, Terri, Troy, Judy, Heather, Cindy and Martha. All proceeds go to the Ellie Fund, raising money for families to help support a loved one fighting breast cancer. Its a great cause and a fun night, and who doesn't love the color pink! We also met some new FABULOUS friends who share out love for the earth and this "new" trend everyone is calling green. Paula Keif and Leanne Schiller have started an…

Warming the Oven . . .

Design Inspiration
I know, we have not even hit Halloween yet, how can you start talking about Thanksgiving? The answer to that is easy, its my favorite holiday and its never too early to start planning the perfect meal. Its not just about the food, but the setting is important too! Having guests at your house this year? Its time to start thinking about a dining room table fit for you, your ever growing family and mother earth. Wood Top Care and Cleaning Information: No matter how tough these tables are, they are made from wood, and any table made from wood can be scratched or burned or dented. When in use, we recommend using trivets, placemats, and tablecloths to protect the top from plates, hot pans, dishes, etc. Darker finishes will…

Celebrating Sixty!

Random
So today marks a momentous occasion, Harold turns 60! Firstly, let me say a big happy birthday to one of the brothers behind this little family gig we call Circle Furniture. The Queen Bee supplied the steak tips and chicken, and Moise and Ralph manned the grill while managing the warehouse, these are men of many talents. This day in history, September 25th, also marks the writing of the Bill of Rights, groundbreaking on our very own Fenway Park, Chubby Checkers' "Twist" topped the charts (I believe Harold was old enough to partake in this one . . .) and Sandra Day O'Connor was sworn in as our first female supreme court justice. Harold himself has been making his own little dent in history as an active member of numerous…

Hey where have you been?

Community and Boston
Celebrating!! What a summer of celebration it has been! Congrats to two Tubman's kicking the big C word to the curb so that the family can get back to focusing on the important things, sailing and furniture. A big applause this weekend to Sean D, as he took his first steps to becoming a key organizer for the Ally Regatta in Boston. Despite weather threats, the race went well and the fund raising for the Ally Foundation was a great success. Team Tubman let the Queen Bee aboard Charisma and finished the race with out personal property damage or bodily harm, A.K.A success! Other things we are proud of this summer: Cindy Hale! Another "c" survivor pedaling her way to the finish of the pan mass challenge. Congrats to her…

Hip to Be Square is so 1986

Green Design
This is 2008! Get with the times, get with Circle! Down2Earth was a smashing success. Tons of people passing through, many of which had furniture from Circle in their homes.
