While we hope everyone is enjoying Summer 2015 - and it's been a warm and dry one most everywhere - we've been at work on new temptations. Hard to believe we have some 40-50 new ideas in the works, most of which will debut shortly after New Year's.
It is so much easier nowadays with 3-D printers taking paper to prototype in a matter of hours. No longer wait 4-6 weeks for a sample... and from prototyping to tooling in a day or two, to parts-on-shelves in no time! Simply amazing...
Our big news is we acquired the building next door, after on-again-off-again talks with the owner the past 10 years. It is another 8,000 square feet, so in all we will now have some 70,000 square feet. Here is a photo from the outside - before we cleaned the front. We are just slightly keeping ahead of the designers and 3-D printers and inventory. Some days it seems like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory!
Please remember our annual Design Contest deadline has been extended to October 1. I know YOU have a brilliant idea for a furniture component or accessory! Unleash those creative juices and send it to us.
Football season is about to begin; a great time of year.
