We want to thank Lee Industries, Traditional Home, Restyle Source, and ALL of the amazing local vendors and businesses that got involved with us! Huge thanks to Julia Reed, Shaun Smith, and Krissa Rossbund for joining Lisa in talking about southern entertaining. It was a fantastic day that we still talk about regularly up here!
We had SO much fun on Saturday! Thank you to everyone who came out! (There were a lot of y’all, and we could not be more appreciative of your support!)
Here are a few fun photos from the day. We hope to share more as we get them over the coming weeks!
Our vendors were AMAZING and had the prettiest setups! Thanks to everyone who was a part of this day. It was pretty close to perfect 🙂 We are so thankful for all of the LOVE shown by our community on Saturday (and everyday!)
We’ll have plenty to sip on, some fantastic little nibblers, and some live blues music by Scott Albert Johnson to set the Mississippi mood! And if the weather ends up as it is currently forecasted, we are in for one seriously gorgeous day!
At 1:30, our designer panel will take place! Shaun Smith, Julia Reed, and our own Lisa Palmer will discuss entertaining in the South! The moderator will be Krissa Rossbund of Traditional Home. There will be some beautiful visuals, as well as some incredible swag bags for the first thirty people to join us for the panel. If you want in on a swag bag, you do NOT want to be late! (They’ll be filled with goodies from our market vendors+ panelists + MUCH more!)
After the panel discussion, Julia will be signing her newest cookbook, Julia Reed’s South!
The market, food, drinks, and music will resume until 4 when we wind things down.
You can plan on doing a lot of your Valentine’s shopping on Saturday, so if you’re a last minute shopper, we totally have you covered! AND, if you’ve been eyeing a piece of Lee Industries furniture at all, then now is the time to get that. We’re offering 20% off, on stock AND special order, now through the 15th!
If you’re thinking you’ll want the fun to continue into the night, why not grab a ticket to Ignite The Night: London Calling?! Lisa will be performing as Amy Winehouse, which is going to be EPIC! Her musically talented sons will also be getting in on the action!
Thank you for dropping by today! We can’t wait to see all of you on Saturday!
We are getting VERY excited about our upcoming Lee Loves Local event next Saturday, February 11th! One of the aspects we are most excited about is the food and drink! We’ll give you a taste of what we have in store, but you’ll definitely have to be here on the big day to fully enjoy!
As far as beverages, we will have bartenders from The Manship (which has an award-winning bar) to mix up a couple of their most popular daytime cocktails! Cathead Vodka is providing us with some of their locally distilled vodka and gin to keep things extra “Mississippi!” Also to be made with Cathead Vodka are the Bloody Marys, which will feature Debutante Farmer’s Bloody Mary Mix! We are pumped about this! Lucky Town Brewery is also going to have some local brews as part of the bar.
One of our most beloved neighbors, Fusion Coffeehouse, will have a setup with coffee and hot chocolate, should there be a need for a little extra warmth (or caffeine!), so we will have something for everyone!
Lurny D’s Grille, a burger food truck which a few of our staff members are particularly fond of, will be here keeping our tummies from rumbling! In addition to burgers, Chef Jeremy Enfinger from County Seat in Livingston is planning to prepare some lighter bites for throughout-the-day grazing! We will let the details on those light bites be a surprise, but we can tell you this: It’s gonna be good.
We are so fortunate to have such wonderful food and drink right here in the Jackson area. One thing we hear often from out-of-towners is how spectacular our local food scene is! And we have to agree. We live in a gold mine of exciting food and drink!
As the cherry on top of all of the above good news… The bar drinks will be served from The Karovan Bar! This is the cutest little bar you ever did see! It’s the prettiest white and natural wood trailer that was made (literally) for events like this! We are thrilled to have them as part of the goings on. 🙂
Stay tuned for more information on our panel coming next week! This panel discussion is one you will not want to miss!
Thanks so much for dropping by today. We can’t wait to see you on February 11th!
Recliners. Men love ’em, women hate ’em. (Generally speaking!)
Thankfully, several of our furniture lines carry recliners that make everyone happy, believe it or not!!! In many cases, men are more concerned with comfort and women are more concerned with style, so we are excited to share with you a roundup of some of our favorite comfortable AND stylish recliners! Check these out!
All of these can be special ordered in a fabric or leather of your choosing, so if you see a style you love, it can be made perfect just for you!! Our designers can get you all fixed up! Just give us a call (601-842-7784) and ask to talk to one of them!
Thank you for dropping by today. We hope you had a very happy Halloween! Hope to see you soon!
The next time you’re flipping through a magazine or scrolling through Pinterest and see a room you love or an item that you just can’t live without, save it! Bring it to us! We have access to hundreds (possibly thousands!) of different lines, many of which often land appearances in design publications. So if you see a style of art that you must have in your home, or a light fixture that you can’t live without, let us try to find it! Or something similar!
We love when clients share rooms that inspire them. It helps our designers get a better feel for what makes our clients happy! And happy clients are the ultimate goal of every single job we do!
Since Keri Russell’s home has been one of the most pinned rooms ever on Pinterest (and with good reason– it’s gorgeous!), we decided to use it to show you what sort of beautiful things we have access to!
We can get any/all of this for you! So next time you see a magazine page that sends you into orbit, let us see it! What inspires you inspires us. We love getting to design for you guys!
Thanks for dropping by today. Hope you’re having a great week!
We love a great swivel chair around here! Adding a swivel to a chair just makes it more fun. Plain and simple! It also makes it more functional in many circumstances! Nurseries, chat groups, keeping rooms, near fire places… The list goes on and on!
Many of the swivel chairs we have access to can also rock, and some even have returns on them, meaning if you spin it, it goes right back to the correct facing position after you get up! Here are a few of our favorite swivel chairs, ranging from more modern to more traditional! Swivel chairs can fit into almost anyone’s aesthetic!
For more info on any of these, just ask one of our designers! We’d love to answer any questions we can about these great swivels!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. We love having you follow along with us here! Have a great second half of the week!
Believe it or not, it is MAY! That means Spring is in full swing and Summer is just around the corner! Is your outdoor space ready for parties, nighttime wine sipping, and al fresco dining? If your answer was no, then we can help!
We just updated an entire section of our showroom floor with outdoor furniture and accessories! Many of these items are so pretty, they look like things you’d want to put inside! Here’s a preview of what you’ll find next time you visit our showroom… So much gorgeousness!
Also, speaking of outdoors, we found this great resource on outdoor lighting if you’re looking to up your game in that realm as well!
See something you want to know more about? Give us a call! 601-853-4445. Our designers are so happy to help! (With as much or as little as you need!)
Thanks a million for stopping by today. We so appreciate it! Hope your week is off to a great start!
Small stools and ottomans have proven time and time again to be the perfect addition to almost any space: at the foot of a bed, flanking a fireplace, tucked under a library table or console… Who doesn’t love non-obtrusive and stylish all rolled into one?! Beautiful small seating not only looks great, but is functional! A couple of extra places to sit can be useful when you have a bunch of people over, or even if you just need a place to sit and slip on your shoes.
We’ve rounded up seven of our favorite small seating options for you and put them all in one place!
Most of these can be custom ordered to fit whatever fabric and finish desire you may have! See one that strikes your fancy? Feel free to contact one of our designers to get more information on your future favorite place to perch!
A tufted sofa is always a winner. It makes a statement, yet it is understated. It’s timeless, yet modern. It’s unexpected, yet blends perfectly with its surroundings. A tufted sofa might be just the thing to take your seating area from mediocre to magnificent with the purchase of just one single piece!
We rounded up six beautiful, yet very different tufted sofas for you to feast your eyes upon today… Which style most steals your heart?!
Do you love tufting as much as we do!?
Let our designers know if you see something you want to know more about! We are here and happy to help!
SAVE THE DATE! For The Love Of Art is back for another round and is going to be better than ever!
We look forward to #LeeLovesLocal season every year because it’s a time when locally owned design businesses all throughout the nation celebrate with events, specials, extra community support, and parties! We are all about ALL of that!
For The Love Of Art, presented by SummerHouse, Lee Industries, and RestyleSource, will be held at our shop on February 11th from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. and will be a celebration of local love, regional artists, food, music, and one of our favorite local charities, Stewpot Community Services.
Baton Rouge native Lauren Barksdale Hill will be here with some beautiful new pieces on display, one of which will be up for raffle! New Orleans based lamp & bowl designer Michael J. Clement will also be here with beautiful “Lindsey” bowls, made exclusively for SummerHouse! (We currently have several things from each artist on our showroom floor and it is all TO.DIE.FOR! Seriously.)
A portion of sales, all raffle money, and all suggested donations at the door will go to support Stewpot Community Services, which you can read more about here!
We are having a lot of fun planning for this event and can’t wait to see you out on February 11th! Stay tuned for more details coming soon!
Thursday night was our FOR THE LOVE OF ART event and it was such a blast! Our four featured artists — May Benton, Brent Smith, Dyann Gunter, and Lauren Lachance — were all here to talk with guests about their work, and our Lee Industries rep Jules and the Lee product development director Bradley were also here to celebrate with us since this was our Lee Loves Local event! We also unveiled the renovation of the back part of our showroom where presentations are now going to take place! It turned out beautifully!
Here are a few snaps of our staff, the artists, the new updates, and more from the evening!
Thank you to everyone who came out and helped us celebrate art and local love! We still have lots of beautiful art hanging, so in case you missed the event, it’s not too late to come take a look!
Our Lee Loves Local event FOR THE LOVE OF ART is tonight! We hope you’ll join us! Don’t forget that 10% of sales from the evening will go to benefit the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra!
We’ll have plenty of small, well-priced pieces that make the most perfect Valentine gifts! Plus, artists Lauren Lachance, May Benton, Brent Smith, and Dyann Gunter will all be here to talk about their incredible work with you!
Call the store if you have any questions about tonight! 601-853-4445.
Today, we wanted to highlight a designer of whose style we are in constant admiration! Designer Bobby McAlpine’s books have been described by members of our staff as design Bibles. And more than once have pages been opened to certain pictures in his books when presentations are given. His work is just SO inspirational!!
‘Tis the season for Mistletoe Marketplace, Jackson’s official kickoff to the holiday season! As we have done the past several years, SummerHouse designed one of the entrances to the shopping part of the event, and it turned out beautifully!! Lisa and Marty, the brains behind the operation, went in the direction of a woman’s study with a beautiful, soft color palette. It’s always quite a rush getting our bay ready to go, but always a lot of fun. When you’re ordering pieces from market (which was just a couple of weeks ago!), having custom pieces made, and obsessing over the tiny details, like pencil color (seriously!), like designers do, it’s quite a feat getting everything finished in time! But there’s nothing like a hard deadline to get things happening! 😉
Here are some snapshots of our space… We hope you’ll stop by and take a look if you get to go to Mistletoe this year!
We also got to do the Corporate Sponsor Lounge! Here are a few pics of that…
What do you think? Do you have a favorite element?
For the first time this year, it’s time to say Happy Holidays and Merry (early) Christmas!)
You still have a couple of days to get your Lee Industries orders in all whilst helping Wounded Warrior Project! Lee Industries is one of the most reputable upholstery companies in the business, excelling in style, fabric selection, durability, customer service, comfort, and much more! We absolutely love this company and know you will too!
So why not add a little new Lee to your life and give back while doing so?
Today’s Orange Box is all about outdoor favorites. There are so many beautiful lines of outdoor furniture and fabrics these days that it’s hard to know where to begin even thinking! Since a southern fall sticks around a little bit longer than fall in other parts of the country, we think now is as good a time as any to spruce up your outdoor and still have plenty of time (and great evening temperatures) to enjoy it!
Let’s see what our designers are loving as far as outdoor right now!
>> Lead Designer Lisa Palmer<<
“Always use 100% acrylic fabrics of course. They are colorfast, washable and bleachable and take the abuse our southern weather can dish out. A comfortable swivel chair is a must. Maybe several! Somehow human beings love to move, and I find that swivel chairs, expecially outdoor when we are at our most relaxed, are the perfect chair. The Lee Industries Outdoor Collection has several very comfortable upholstered swivel options and tons of 100% acrylic fabrics to choose from. Four grouped together facing each other with a great round cocktail table is functional and super fun!
>> Designer Todd Prince <<
I love the Brown Jordan Drift collection. Look how pretty. That’s so me! Inspired by the 1950’s… So sleek and pretty… That is so Todd!
>> Designer Elish Phares <<
There are so many more options for outdoor furniture now that it is becoming just as important in design as interior pieces! For a designer, that is very exciting. I love LEE outdoor for upholstered, and any clubcu concrete piece for casegoods. There’s nothing better than a great marriage between style and function!
>> Designer Katy Hines <<
Outdoor fabrics have come such a long way in the past few years, both in look and in feel, that we actually use them for interior design just as much as we do in our outdoor designs! Most of the time, you can’t even tell if a fabric is acrylic or not. One of my favorite lines is Link Outdoor. Great textures and patterns!
>> Designer Lindsey Townsend <<
I love all of our outdoor lines for many different reasons, but currently I am loving the “Mood Daybed” by Janus et Cie. It has a very unique and updated look. It would be amazing under a covered area near the pool. Great place for napping!
>> Designer Sunny Holliday <<
Currently, my favorite outdoor collection is the Brown Jordan Marin collection by designer Michael Berman. This is truly a stunning collection! The threading details on the gorgeous teak frames are of a UV-resistant yacht cord. The pieces are very welcoming and cozy, and can even be used indoors!
