Most Popular Sofa in 2014


We are just past the halfway point in 2014 so I figured it was time to check up on what are the popular items in the store. Today I want to show you our best selling sofa for the first half of this year.

Say hello to Maddie. This sofa is made for us by Broyhill and offers versatility and comfort.

“With both 74” and 87” sofa lengths, Maddie works well in compact spaces or larger great rooms. Slightly splayed arms and unskirted base above dark-finished tapered legs. Customize from hundreds of fabrics and finishing touches. Maddie™ is true to Broyhill® Furniture’s commitment to style, sustainability and 100 years of quality craftsmanship.”

Maddie is one selection from our Custom VIP program from Broyhill. It is available in 40 different cover fabrics and your choice of pillow fabric all for the affordable price of just $699. No wonder it is so popular.

When you are out enjoying this beautiful summer weather, stop in and check out our Broyhill gallery on 4th floor.

Chalk on the Walk 2014

Chalk on the Walk 2014


It is time for the Freedom Festival again and that means it is time for “Chalk on the Walk”. This is one of my favorite events in our life at Smulekoff’s. People of all ages come to draw their pictures on the sidewalk outside of the store.

Earlier this week we had three vans full of daycare children outside. Those kids were having a blast. Yesterday we had some adults drawing their images. This morning we found a new panel in front of the store. The artist either came last night after closing or was in very early this morning.

I know of at least one father/daughter team that looks forward to this event each year. They have working on designing their image at home and now it is time.

I hope you all have a great 4th of July. If you get downtown for the fireworks or just some of the other activities, swing by the store and see what these wonderful artists have done.
