Guest blogger: Sam, Kittery, ME Showroom Manager
Whew! We’ve been moving and shaking in our Kittery, Maine showroom – and our beautiful new corporate offices means more space for me (Sam, the Kittery Showroom Manager) to fill up with great new products! We received our new Maple Corner Woodworks 4-Post Bed a few weeks ago and fell in love before it was even assembled. The warm cherry wood, graceful lines, and beautiful construction of this bed are truly striking. I put it together myself (I am woman – hear me roar!) and can vouch that every joint, screw, and peg is expertly engineered and crafted!
We had decided ahead of time that only one mattress could do our new 4-Post Bed justice: the Green Sleep Dolcezza. Picture it: three layers of pure, supportive Malaysian latex topped with a soft pillowtop made with a fourth latex layer and that famous Texel wool. Heaven. (Is it a coincidence that this is called the “Ergo Hevea” Dolcezza? I think not!) I’ve been doing quite a bit of “product research” at work lately (a.k.a. taking naps) and have decided I’m totally in love with the firmer side of our Dolcezza. Pure bliss!
After demonstrating that I am, in fact, capable of assembling furniture (shh… nobody tell my fiancé – it’s so much easier when he does it!) I was put to the task of assembling not one, but two more beds for our showroom. The sage green of our new “Beach House Bed” looks gorgeous in our corner window, and the geometric lines of the barn-red “Porch Rail Bed” are clean, interesting, and unique. Both have a classic New England feel, perfect for that old farmhouse we all secretly wish we own (and which a lot of my Kittery clients actually do own!) The two beds are tied together perfectly our new, rich-blue-with-cherry-accents dresser. My clothes would be honored to reside in such a well-made home (fancy new dresser = excuse to go shopping for new clothes? Hmm…)!
We’ve received two more fascinating products in the last few weeks: the Sleep and Beyond Washable Wool Mattress Pad and the Sleep and Beyond Washable Wool Topper. That’s right, folks – ask and you shall receive. We’ve been hearing the cry for a washable wool topper for years now, but couldn’t find one that met our (yes, we admit it) stringent requirements. Behold – a topper that’s comfortable, affordable, and washable! The mattress pad is roughly half as thick as the topper, so it offers an amazing amount of padding all on its own. I’m so excited to showcase them in Kittery! That sums up the new arrivals around here – come on down, test them out, and let us know what else you’ve been searching for!
