Winter Freeze = Cozy Home



When the weather outside is frightful what do people do for themselves?

Spruce up the house!

YAY!

 

December’s extraordinary, fast paced days, and the glitz of Christmas are now tucked away in the memory bank.

 

 

It’s frigid January.  It’s only the beginning of winter. It’s time to complain about the weather. . . like we didn’t know it was coming.

 

 It’s time to do something with our energy! 

We look around the house and realize there is no better time to get creative. We want soups and stews and a cozy gathering place to be with each other.

 

 We want to play board games, watch movies while munching on yummy flavors of popcorn, and a snazzy sectional for hosting a Super Bowl party.

We want our very own chair and a fantastic, long winded novel.

 

We want our home to be congenial, comfortable, and cozy.  Most of all we want to be HOME!

 

It’s no wonder that January and February are the busiest months in the home furnishing world!

Phelan’s!

We’ve got you covered.

GHOST Chairs Reappear

Art Deco had its hey-day nearly 80 years ago, even though we still “borrow” ideas and style from that era. Like, all friendly spirits, these ghosts keep reappearing! Some look very old-country, and some look very out-of-this-world modern.

 Victoria Ghost Chairs

The 1960’s  really ran with the clear plastic craze  and one of the many pieces produced was a “ghost chair”. Today the manufacturers use lucite, acrylic, polycarbonate, and even glass!

La Marie Chair

Phillippe Starck’s Louis XV Ghost armchair.

 Most are clear and colorless, while some companies are stretching  the entire playful idea of ghost chairs by offering designs in assorted colors!

Lionel Dean’s Holy Ghost chair

This is one of my favorites – it’s painted to look like wood grain and then the bottom of the legs are left clear, giving it that floaty, spooky ghost feeling! It is from the Japanese company Nendo. Of course, it’s called The Fade Out.

Enjoy the sit out of these fanciful chairs! 

 Coming soon to Phelan’s Floor.
