on the down low

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

Just attended the Maison et Objèt show in Paris ... amazing and inspiring and, at times, overwhelming!

everywhere you looked were signs in every language reminding you that photos were forbidden ... right alongside were folks snapping pics!

I got a little braver as the day progressed and sneaked a few fuzzy shots of some of my favorite furniture pieces or color combinations.

I grabbed this one because turquoise is the talk of the town and it was wildly on display here.

The photo doesn't quite do justice but its floor to (high) ceiling bookcases, stately form, black with bold turquoise interior. to wake it up even more? a fantastical collection of parrots in reds and blacks and jewel tones were interspersed amongst the books and other objèts.

would make a tiny bibliotheque to die for.

more to come...

January CLEARANCE Sale!

Thursday, January 14, 2010

We're throwing a clearance sale to make way for all of the new pieces we've brought in to kick-off 2010!

Take advantage of 25% OFF ALL 2009 furniture items. We have a variety to pick from ... tables, chairs, accent pieces and more.

Stop in now through Sunday to enjoy the savings (2447 San Pablo Avenue, Berkeley)! Our new layaway plan can be used for sale items, too. Don't miss out on these great prices ~

What's this about a Layaway Plan, you ask?! Well...say you see a piece that Johnelle has revamped in our shop and you love it, you want to take it home, but you feel it to be a little much of a splurge- we all have those days, right? Again.. you love it, it will serve a purpose in your home, and if only there was a way you could pay for it in two payments.

Well You Can!

Mignonne is big on client trust, so we have an agreement plan that will allow you to pay for the first half of a piece, take it home, and pay the second half within four weeks! Many of our clients have told us how much they appreciate the flexibility of this service. We are thankful for your support through the years and we are happy to be able to offer this plan for you!

Feel free to give us a call at 510.388.5830 if you have any questions...or would like our advice and help transforming a piece of your own ...

here's a fun little way to "toast" the New Year! How about a sip of Drambouie ... a sweet little 70s table that's been given some punch!

We love making the old new again ... this will be a cute conversation piece while adding some extra storage to a living room, family room or den!

Remember, if you've got a tired old piece you were thinking you couldn't do a thing with ... shoot us a photo and we'll give you some ideas.

We restore and transform your finds ... or you can visit us to check out our ever changing inventory of furniture in all styles and colors.
