Who’s the Boss? CEO Cube!

July 28, 2011

“The pure shape, the blend of materials, the solid, technically-advanced structure, the soul of Poltrona Frau. Microarchitecture rather than simple furnishing, able to divide and populate the space of the most qualified workplaces.”  This system of working is designed by Vignelli Associates.  “I like [design] to be visually powerful, intellectually elegant, and above all timeless.”  Massimo Vignelli

Should you have any doubt the caliber of their work, simply consider this example from their portfolio … the NY subway system has used their design for signage since 1966!  I take comfort in the knowledge that they produce useful, lasting designs …

“The CEO Cube series comprises meeting tables, managerial desks, storage units and an open bookcase.  The Desk structure is asymmetric with a tubular support frame and sheet metal crossbars, specifically designed to accommodate cables and wiring.  The cube that supports one side of the desk is fitted with a special system allowing it to rotate. It is designed with two storage drawers and a filing drawer with lock.”

Choose materials from wood and leather to customize the right look for you.  Choose function and flexibility to suit your work style.  Choose craftsmanship from Poltrona Frau to make sure you’re getting the best there is…

Come into SR Hughes now through March 20th, 2012 and save 20% on CEO Cube and all items in the Poltrona Frau collection.

I love it, but my house isn’t modern

July 25, 2011

I’ve worked for SR Hughes for ten years and I can’t tell you how many times I have heard “I love it, but my house isn’t modern.”  I think that if you love it, it doesn’t matter.

I love it, but it’s too modern

Your mother’s grandfather clock and Heriz carpet can look beautiful next to your more contemporary pieces.

I love it, but it’s too modern.

I love this bedroom with  mirrored side tables, glass lamps and such a beautiful color palate.  The Ingo Maurer’s Zettle’z fixture, Kartell‘s Louis Ghost Chair and FLOS Kevlin Table Lamp feel right at home with their more traditional counterparts.

I love it, but it’s too modern.

What’s not to love here.  You can almost hear the warm laughter of a family gathering in this inviting dining room.

Love, it’s a funny thing.  I guess what they say is true, sometimes opposites attract.

Drillers are HOME!

July 22, 2011

“Baseball changes through the years. It gets milder. “ Babe Ruth

College football has not yet begun, and the anticipation for Drillers baseball at the incomparable ONEOK Field is on the rise.

Think it is too hot to get outside, well think again.  The Drillers are home all weekend long!!!  Click here to see their schedule.

Grab a burger & a beer at Fat Guys and head to the game a little later when the sun has set, it’ll be a bit milder.

Hot! Hot! Hot!

July 21, 2011

This morning on the news the weather man said “Tulsa is the new Phoenix”.  That’s right, we are experiencing a heat wave that has our weathermen reluctant to predict when Oklahomans might get a break.   Well, my glass of water is half full.  Let’s look at the bright side, get outside and let’s do it in style.

Come visit SR Hughes at Center 1, 3410 S Peoria Ave where we’ll help you discover the possibilities, or shop your ideas right here and contact us with your questions:

Art Deco in T-Town

July 19, 2011

Known as the “Terra Cotta City” in the late 1920s for its beautiful examples of art deco buildings, Tulsa offers this walking tour so others can learn of the fascinating history and architects behind them. Many of the buildings are now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and three internationally recognized architects designed buildings in Tulsa that are considered outstanding examples of art deco style: Frank Lloyd Wright (Westhope); Barry Byrne (Christ the King Church); and Bruce Goff (Boston Avenue United Methodist Church). Other art deco buildings include the Philcade, Warehouse Market, Spotlight Theater, Tulsa Union Depot, Fairgrounds Pavilion, Will Rogers High School, Tulsa Monument Company, the Fire Alarm Building, and the Brook Theater (now the Brook restaurant). Maps of these art deco landmarks are available from the Tulsa Metro Chamber, located in the Williams Center Tower II, Plaza Level, at 2 West Second St. (918) 585-1201.  Alternatively, you can download this map showing historical significance of Tulsa’s downtown buildings.

Edit

July 1, 2011

edit. is a world class design store owned by BC and Olivia Lee.  The couple met in June of 2009, married in March 2011, and opened edit. a short month later in April.  The concept of “edit” came from their personal need to eliminate all the superfluous and unnecessary things in their own lives.

They believe that their curated selection of items are unique not only to Tulsa but to the entire region.  “We tried to bring an amazing eclectic mix of items to the store from electronics, to home accessories, to office products…even bicycles.  I like to describe us as “like the Apple Store…but for everything else”, says BC.

Both grew up with  a love for design and style so combining their passions into a joint venture made sense.  In addition to working at edit., Olivia also has her own business as a personal stylist, makeup artist, and fashion blogger, called “Liv Glamorous“. “Because of her background Olivia has a keen eye for choosing the right mix of products as well as great merchandising skills”, says her husband.

Their vendors include Alessi, Iittala, Mono, Pott Flatware, Stelton, Vipp, Tivoli Audio, Strida Bikes, ExoVault iPhone cases, Area Home Linens, and many more.

Stop by to experience what edit. is all about!

You can contact them at owners@editulsa.com and submit any cool items you find to coolhunters@editulsa.com.
