Philly Furniture Show!

The 2013 Philadelphia Furniture Show is upon us!

What does that mean for us? A couple of days worth of wrapping, packing, and loading Rob's furniture into the truck to tote into the city where it will be proudly displayed as it waits for you to come and give it a new home.

What does that mean for you? Clearing some room in your weekend schedule to head down to the Armory and surround yourself with some seriously beautiful furniture.

Rob, Eoin, and myself have been hard at work today putting the finishing touches on the pieces that will be shown. The men are now packing up each piece as we prep for truck loading.

It's spring! Spring means spring cleaning. Spring cleaning means finally getting rid of that piece of fiberboard furniture you bought at Target four years ago and swore to yourself was "just for now until I find something better". Consider this your chance to choose from all things better. Think of how pleased you'll be replacing it with a handcrafted, real wood, one-of-a-kind piece as you chat with the designer and builder himself.
Rob has quite a selection ranging from tables, a blanket chest, and night stands to a massive live edge dining table with chairs and a bench. The past few days have been my first gander at a lot of his pieces and they are stunning.

This will be my first furniture show and I am eager to see what is in store. Just taking part in helping Rob prepare has shown me all that goes into an event like this for each exhibitor. Knowing all the hard work that goes into creating such beautiful pieces as these, I am even more excited to be surrounded by the artists and absorbing as much as I can from the environment.

The show will be Saturday 10am-7pm and Sunday 10am-5pm this weekend. You'll find us under the Robert Spiece Furniture sign awaiting your visit!

And, side note, for those who may travel with furniture in the near or distant future; there is a proper way to fold a moving blanket and it is the Jeffry Lohr way. It goes something like this:
