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:

I Chiostri

April 19, 2011

I had the morning to stop by the Chiostri dell’Umanitaria for an out-of-body experience in color, texture, and composition from Paola Lenti. The company is conducting an ongoing restoration of this 15th Century Franciscan monastery. Indoors or out, flooring to furniture … when you want a unique expression, Paola Lenti delivers.















Patio Furniture is a Thing of the Past

March 14, 2011

Outdoor living spaces are not only becoming fashionable for the rich and famous, but desirable for families who wish to make a house a home inside and out.  Patio furniture is a thing of the past. In an attempt to enjoy every bit of our lives, nature included, furniture makers and upholstery designers are now creating exquisite lines of outdoor living furniture.

So, as gardens have evolved into luxurious outdoor rooms, it’s time to think beyond whatever you find at the last-minute just because the weather is nicer.  It’s time to invest in stylish all-weather furnishings. Enjoy the selection in many of the lines at SR Hughes and create a sanctuary to enjoy outdoors.

Looking Ahead

February 13, 2011

It’s all too true…..because of the snowy weather we are spending some forced time in front of the fireplace or behind the snow shovel. But never fear, soon enough these days of endless television, Facebook, bored kids and refrigerator raids will be replaced with Tulsa’s beautiful spring and “oh so hot” summer.

Yes, it’s hard to imagine that the swimsuit will soon replace the parka. Time on the sofa will turn into time outside and along with that comes the migration to the pool and the deck.

So….take a quick inventory of your patio furnishings. Your outdoor area won’t be very inviting if you are spending time on some less than stellar, weather beaten chairs and loungers.

Now is the time to check out the exciting lines of outdoor furniture that will be featured at SR Hughes. Come into the showroom or check us out online. MamaGreen, Alias, Paola Lenti and Kartell are a few of the companies with fun, sturdy and great looking pieces that will add lots of comfort and clean, cool design style to your outdoor living spaces.

If you want the ideal set up for enjoying some quality time outside, let us help you choose the loungers, chairs, tables and sunshades that will transform your green space into a “dream space”.

Don’t just imagine better weather…..take the next step and make a plan! Placing your order now will guarantee delivery in plenty of time.

Snowy days are perfect for Outdoor Living Design

February 9, 2011

Baby it’s cold outside and we want to stay indoors!  This winter weather has me daydreaming about warmer days lounging in the sun and entertaining outside.

Being a “list girl” means I get tremendous satisfaction by checking things off said list, so naturally I’ve added “budget and plan outdoor space” to my page.   Such a great indoor activity on a cold day that’ll have me outdoors and in my lounge chair on that first nice day of spring!  

I know its natural to start thinking of  what you need to enjoy the great outdoors in March when the first  few warm days arrive.  That is all fine and good, but be ready to settle for whatever is available at the time … and realize that it might not be the best fit.   Maybe you’re patient enough to wait for what you really want so you order it, but you also miss out on the spring fling because your precious cargo won’t arrive until late June!  My guess is that the majority of us are not so patient and we end up buying a quick fix that lasts one season. 

Break the cycle and start now!  We can have you asleep on your lounger in the sun just as the weather warms up.  SR Hughes offers tons of innovative options for living outdoors.  You can shop Alias, Mamagreen, Kartell, and Paola Lenti in the showroom.

If you are looking for something else, another option is to work with our design department and have access to many other lines such as Brown JordanSutherland Teak, Janus et Cie, Richard Schultz and many more.

In either case, now is the time to let us help you imagine that perfect outdoor space so that you’re sitting pretty just as the first blooms arrive and the blowing snow is just a mere memory.

Outdoor Living Nothing New For Paola Lenti

April 26, 2009


The rage this year at Salone is to add outdoor lifestyle to your resume.  I can understand.  In Milan and just about anywhere I’ve ever been in Italy, outdoor living is part of the way you live.  I have to admit, Paola Lenti didn’t begin designing furniture for outdoors.  In fact, I discovered her by way of incredibly innovative felt floor coverings which incorporated industrial conveyer belt technology.  As with anything she touches, it will absolutely be built via her own innovation.  That is why I was so delighted with her collection this year.  The display moved out of Superstudio Piu in Zona Tortona (where everyone else is clamoring to be) to a serene Palazzo in the city.  A quiet oasis, this was one of my favorites of the fair.  Not only for the calm (a necessary balm during this week) but because her production uses handcraft coupled with the latest technology to give “rhythm, breath, and emotion” to the living space.  She’s been working in the outdoor milieu for several years now and count on this — she delivers forms, textiles, rugs, textures, and colors for outdoor that you will only under the name Paola Lenti.
