New in the Broyhill Gallery

We have some new arrivals up on 4th floor.  The Broyhill Gallery has some new additions.

Here is the new Eastlake bedroom group.  What do you think?  I like it.  It’s different.  I like how it is made as well. English dovetail joints in the drawer, dust shields between the drawers and wood on wood glides.  These are the features I look for in better bedroom furniture.

Check out this new sofa.  This design is actually an old favorite, the Zachary.  But this one is done in a corded chenille fabric that is really rich.  I am impressed.  Of course, if you like the style but want a different fabric, Broyhill would be happy to make it for you.  This is an excellent example of how that can work for you.  This silhouette has been one of our best selling sofas, but almost always done in a micro-fiber fabric treatment.  Doing this same style in a corded chenille gives it an entirely different look and feel.

Finally we have the Perspectives sofa in a more modern design.  This has a very well proportioned wedge arm.  Combine that with the exposed wood rail at the base and you have a sofa with a very clean, “put together” feel.

Let me take this opportunity to wish you all a merry Christmas.  Let’s hope this weather doesn’t spoil the holidays.


Santa Comes to Smulekoff’s

Smulekoff’s was hopping last Saturday night when the jolly man came to visit us and to greet all of the children.  After he appeared in the Fire and Ice Holiday Parade through downtown Cedar Rapids, Santa came to the store to visit with the children.

Nearly 100 families came to the store to see Santa and to say hello to the reindeer outside.  Santa brought along Mrs. Claus, two of his reindeer and several of his faithful elves.  As you might imagine, it was a busy place on first floor as the children climbed up on Santa’s knee to whisper in his ear that special something that they wanted him to bring on Christmas Eve.

We also had the pleasure of listening to the chorus from Washington High School as they shared some carols.  The Grinch was on the TVs and in another corner some of the children were listening to stories.  It was clear the holiday season has arrived.

And now the snow has arrived as well.  It is officially Christmas time.
