The Powell is my pal.

Confession: I have been a fan of Worlds Away for quite a while.  LOOOONNG before I started working here. And yes, it was a dream come true when I was hired I to work here!

Back during my "fan" stage, the one I lived in before being in the "fan/employee" stage I'm currently floating in...One of my very first Worlds Away purchases was the Powell.

Kids, let me tell you...if you don't have one of these you are really missing out because this guy is a show stopper.  End of story. You've probably been saying to yourself..."Oh I just don't have a place to put it..." or something like that to try to talk yourself out of buying one.  Well, this is a piece you find a place to put it.  You make room, you scoot other things out of the way. You hire two guys and a truck to move stuff out, you post other things on Craigslist. This guy does not disappoint! I mean...come on! Talk about tall drink of water!

This piece can be cast in so many roles.  Entry way, breakfast room, put two of them together with a rectangle piece of glass for a dining table or desk. I'm currently using it in my sunroom. The list of options for this flexible piece is endless. As is the list of chair styles you can put around it!

Do you know what's better than Powell 36?
Well maybe not better, but surely just as good...
The Powell 36's little sister!

While reading other design blogs this week, I discovered that the
Worlds Away Powell is growing a fan base (no pun intended).
Our friend over at THE GLAM LAMB loves the Powell too!
Check her out and tell her we said hello!

Ask and you shall receive...Seek and you shall find

As the story goes, "ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you..."Yeah, yeah, sure, sure...right? Well it's true.  Today we received a lovely flush of visitors to our blog who sent us pictures of their Worlds Away pieces in their home.

Let us share that of Mod Frugal.  They sent us a lovely showing of their new dining room space with 3 of our pieces.  Cosmo the table, Mondo the lamp, and Vicki the mirror.

Thank you to our new friends at ModFrugal for sharing with us and the Worlds Away fans! It's great to see these 3 kids have a good (and very beautiful) home! To view more of this dining room transition, click here.

We received a lovely note from a former Memphian, remember we are in Memphis "y'all", who now lives in Nashville.  She is no stranger to the blog world and as it were you probably are already friends! But just in case, let us introduce our friend from My Interior Life. She shared a lovely post with us that exhibits our CHFAC3 fixture front and center in her dining room.

We are so excited to meet you, make contact with you, and share your projects!
Many thanks, Kathy for sharing with us!

Lots of Greek Key Action Going On

As many designers know, Greek Key is taking the field by storm.  It is popping up everywhere.  Fabrics, trim, artwork, carpet and rugs, and furniture.  We proudly have some of these beautiful Greek Key pieces in our inventory.  If you aren't familiar, let me introduce the Pagoda and her big sister the Wrenfield.

Meet one of our new friends....

Saturdays are fabulous!  We all love them, right?  It is an opportunity to wash the clothes that you wish you had clean to wear during the past week (I'm speaking from personal experience), take a nap, hang out with friends and family.... go SHOPPING!  Oh, and speaking of shopping.....let me introduce you to a new member of our Worlds Away litter.  This piece is not yet available but will be soon...again...I repeat....THIS PIECE IS NOT YET AVAILABLE BUT WILL BE SOON!  I know you're all going to want 1...or like me, both.

This is Jackson.  Jackson is named after our dearly beloved office golden retriever.  He's such an amazing dog.  So when this table was named, we knew it has to have a really important name!
And rightfully so...just like our Jackson with four legs, Jackson the dining table is the most beautiful dining table...EVER.  Okay so clearly I am biased, but come's a fabulous piece.

The Jackson table hosts multiple friends and is a table folks will want to gather around for the holidays and for parties!

The Jackson Dining Table, along with many other new friends,
 will be released during the summer of 2011!
