Queen Bee Strikes Again

Buzz
While our own Queen Bee has flown off to Australia in search of all things "outback", her drones (ok, me) have received the good word that she has been asked to sit on yet another panel for sustainability. "The American Home Furnishings Alliance will hold its second annual Sustainability Summit which provides marketing intelligence for companies developing eco-friendly home furnishings. The AHFA is assembling a panel of retailers for "Bridging the Gap: Communicating Green at Retail." Among the participants will be Andy Thornton (our great friend!) of LaDifferénce in Richmond, Va., and Peggy Burns ofCircle Furniture in Boston." Ok, so we are pretty proud to offer eco-friendly furniture and fabrics but how does this translate to the consumer? In SO MANY WAYS!!! Not only can you feel good about buying furniture that was made locally and sustainably but…

What A Week!

Random
The leaves are changing and the mornings are so cold already. And doesn't it seem like it's already way too dark in the morning? How many times can a girl trick herself into thinking she will get up at 5:30 am and get to the gym? But the alarm goes off and I crawl back under the covers and think, "Wow, I'm not going anywhere, who am I kidding?" Brrrrrr. It's fall. And what a fall it's shaping up to be. We've had such a busy week here at Circle Furniture. We've been going crazy; moving our showrooms around to make them look beautiful for our upcoming Fall Upholstery Sale. And let's not forget our Ekornes Home Theater Sale that brings so many people though the door everyday. Our big American Leather sale is still…

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…
