…where sophisticated graphics on cardboard form animals for play or as decoration …

Febo is Tradition Updated

November 22, 2011

The blanket stitching is unpretentious.

The entirely upholstered body and leg keeps things simple, but if you want the wood base just ask.  Two seat heights allow use as sofa or banquette.

The same slightly curved body makes a beautiful headboard.  Quiet elegance.

And a whole host of chairs ranging from dining to lounge to chaise … all share beguiling soft curves.

Febo, the fetching collection just off the boat from Milan.  So ravishing, no one would expect her steel structure.  Febo from Maxalto.

Update your traditional sensibilities with a little help from Febo and SR Hughes.

Martha Sturdy Resin: The Gift Anyone Would Love.

Sometimes you give a gift just because it’s beautiful.

Martha Sturdy Resin is  perfect for giving the gift of beauty, but it is even more fabulous that it can be the object of beauty and the object of function.

For the entertainer or the one that loves to be entertained….

For the chef, cook or party planner….

Enjoy the art of gift giving this season; visit us at SR Hughes for Martha Sturdy Resin and many more unique gifts.

Artful Affordable

November 18, 2011

Who knew brass could lose its yesteryear stodginess and become today’s hot metal?  By combining the British industrial revolution’s materials (cast iron, enamel, copper, brass, marble, and solid wood) with today’s industrial processes, Tom Dixon has been able to breathe new energy into grandma’s candlesticks …

Case in point:  ETCH CANDLE HOLDER, $55

Using the technology employed to cut circuit boards, detailed designs are photo-etched onto brass sheets.  Then, all unexposed areas are dissolved with acid, leaving the intricate patterns cut into metal.  Flat-packed for you to assemble and your handiwork is part of the process.  Hardware is included so that you can join multiple holders together for your own sculptural table scape.

The warm glow is all you:  ETCH PENDANT, $285

Another great idea from Tom Dixon … whether to spiff up your own digs in advance of holiday visitors or to give to that stylish, creative person on your list … is the Magically Oversized Knob!

Starting at $55 for the 4″ diameter, these thick chunks of colored glass mount to your wall so that you can hang your coat or dog leash in the mud room when you come in the back door.  Or, you can mix color and size (large is 10″ round) to create art on your wall wherever you hang your hat!

The gift department at SR Hughes is bigger than ever!  You’ll find these and more innovative ideas for giving only at SR Hughes.  We invite you to support local Oklahoma businesses wherever you buy this season:

Get Out There!

November 17, 2011

One of my favorite travel resources is the 36 Hours series published in the New York Times Travel section.  I love to get out, roam about, see what’s shakin’ … listen to how people talk, try a little of their favorite foods, check out the local flavor.  I think most people have a little of the adventure in their DNA, right?  No surprise then that Taschen’s 36 Hours:  150 Weekends in the USA & Canada is one of my favorite gift ideas this holiday season!  It’s just been released, so don’t fret … he/she doesn’t have it yet…

Stumped about where to spend a quick couple of days … flip this fabric covered book open to the map:

Pick an area nearby, select the region that falls within the area covered by your Southwest Airlines credit, or close your eyes and point.  Now, turn to that portion of the book (neatly separated by color code and colored ribbon bookmark for that section):

Follow Times illustrator Olimpia Zagnoli’s graphics to the spots you might want to investigate (Oh look! 2 dude-like figures hanging out in Provincetown or maybe  Fallingwater over there in the Laurel Highlands).  From “the great urban centers on everyone’s travel list to surprising locales with undiscovered character and charm,”  it’s all here.  Skip to the emblem for Harvard (just to the right of those Red Sox) and check out the section on Cambridge, MA…

The book, like the Times column, shows you what you need to know to have a great weekend anywhere in North America.  Columns originally written by all sorts contributors have been updated by former Times Travel editor Barbara Ireland, so everything is hot off the press.

For yourself or anyone with very little moss on their stone … this is a perfect way to give the gift of adventure!  A mere $39.99 and it’s done!

Now departing at the gift department in SR Hughes ….
