A Bookish Sort

July 5, 2014

There is something about a home without books that I find unsettling.  Even with modern technology leaving print behind, I believe we’ll always want our homes to include mementos tracing our travels and concrete manifestations of ideas we find interesting.  I’d rather stack those things up and keep them close by, not fumble through my phone to find the photo of …

This is an ode to clean lines, comfortable living, and evidence of a personal history…

New Classics

August 30, 2012

Get a handle on what will survive the test of style now and in the future.  The New York Times interviewed several contemporary furniture experts asking what designs produced since 2000 would still be on the style radar in 2050?  Several answers are available right here at SR Hughes

Pictured top down are Kartell’s Ghost chair and Bourgie lamp, B&B Italia’s Metropolitan Chair, and Tom Dixon’s Beat Lights.  We invite you to stop in and find all of these NY Times picks, or choose from hundreds of other innovative ideas to find your own future classic.

This little ditty from your friends at NY Times T Magazine is fertilizer for your brain to guarantee a spring-y spring!  The right light is so often overlooked, but it’s as important as good soil to a beautiful garden. The key to making your space sing!

One thing your friends at T Mag didn’t know … Roll & Hill, Foscarini, and Kartell are only three of the dozen lighting brands available at SR Hughes.  Right here in little ‘ol Oklahoma!

When you have the help of the world’s best lighting designers behind you … it’s one of the easiest decisions to make.

For a fresh perspective on how to make your garden glow (yes, there are plenty of outdoor lights too), stop into our Tulsa showroom at Center 1, 35th & Peoria.

Endless gift possibilites this season at SR Hughes

College Lifestyle: Portable Panache?

August 13, 2011

College life means you’re on the move … but it doesn’t mean that your dormroom, apartment, or yurt has to suffer for style.  There are plenty of affordable ideas that will serve you well today without leaving your post-grad love interest wishing you’d just grow up.

Sit with style,  keep it flexibile (use indoors or out), and show them you know all about the Masters (Arne Jacobsen, Eero Saarinen, and Charles Eames).  Masters chair is a “stylistic summation” of three famous chair designs, and color or no, it’s a very easy go ($244).

Or, maybe Thalya’s sit is more your mood ($293)?  Shown here with the Francois Ghost mirror (starting at $410).  Choose clear or color … you can’t go wrong.

Ghost Buster comes in two sizes … for bedside, bathside, or entryway  ($412 and up).  Shown here with the Cindy lamp ($273) … the two go together or fly solo in any interior with perfect poise.

What’s that you say?  You spent all of your allowance on books but you still need a nightstand to put them on (in)?  Check out Anna Castelli Ferrieri’s Componibili shown above in white ($160).  Available in round or square.  Modular elements let you create what is right for you.  Oh yeah, they’re also displayed at MoMA and the Pompidou Centre in case anyone questions your authority.

If its side table you need but, like Saarinen you eschew a slum of legs, then consider Top Top table ($279).  Totally clear or with a colored top … this beauty will lighten your load.

You don’t have to don your orange jumpsuit to use the Mayday light ($108).  This industrial workhorse makes the perfect desktop light.  If you’re trying to create a chandelier ad-hoc because your landlord claims you’re not a certified electrical journeyman, Mayday saves the day!  The hook/handle acts as a cord winder and a vent hole in the shade lets you hang them together … swag those cords (you know you want to) and plug them in.  Done!

If Mayday isn’t quite up to the task, you might consider our new fave, Kelvin ($396).  Wall or table mount, it does the job.  Dimmable LED means you’ll have as much light as you like, never change the bulb, and only use 8 watts of power doing it!  Sounds like you could hook up your bicycle to that and pedal-power it.  Aren’t you the smart one!

SR Hughes showroom can fix your wagon liketly-split!  All the above available in stock or from quickship.

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.

Visit SR Hughes at Center 1— we’ll help you find the perfect mix for the way you want to live.
