Paul Schatz Furniture welcomed Eugene in 2014

Looking back on 2014, one of the highlights for Paul Schatz Furniture was launching our Eugene store.

Paul Schatz Furniture opened the Eugene showroom about 10 months ago and it’s been a mutual love affair ever since. After 95 years in the Portland area, why did we choose Eugene for our second store? It was a trifecta of location, opportunity, and leadership:

  1. Location – situated on the I-5 corridor, Eugene is the gateway to snow skiing, the coast, and accessible from northern California, southern and central Oregon, and the Willamette Valley. The performing arts influence from the Hult Center and the University of Oregon Ducks were also positive factors. Eugene is the perfect small big city to shop for furniture.
  2. Opportunity – The prestigious American manufacturing company, Stickley,  approached Paul Schatz and Carol Schatz, interested in establishing a store in Eugene to sell their hand-finished solid wood furniture.
  3. Leadership – Stickley and Paul Schatz Furniture unanimously selected Denver Harris to manage the Eugene store. With 37 years of industry expertise and 12+ years of selling Stickley furniture, it was the perfect fit.

But Stickley is just the beginning. Paul Schatz Furniture Eugene also features renowned furniture brands Century, Taylor King, Sherrill, Bradington Young, Bernhardt, Lexington, and Nichols & Stone. Paul Schatz Furniture sells treasured heirlooms of the future.

5 Home Design Trends You’ll See in 2014

The New Year is here, and 2014 home design predictions are already being made by designers and bloggers around the interweb wherever you look. Truth is, we’ve got some predictions of our own, and we can’t think of a better way to ring in the New Year than with by sharing them with you. Here’s to a healthy, happy and design-forward 2014!

Out with the Gold, in with the Copper

copper

Last year, metallics made a striking comeback. For the first time in years, we saw bright silvers and daring golds nearly take over the design world, and we liked it. In 2014, the metallic model will still reign, but we’ll see that bold copper color become the most popular of the lustrous legacy. Copper will shine as the color of choice for lamp shades, dish-wear, chairs and accents.

Inside Out

Once upon a time, our backyard spaces were distinctly different than our indoor living rooms; they were decorated with decidedly “outdoor” furniture, meant to distinguish being inside and being out. This year, we’re embracing the outside living room look, replete with cushions, drapes, side tables and more. The transition from inside to out has never been so seamless.

Rubber Ducky in a Stand-Alone Tub

stand-alonetub

The stand-alone tub looks sleek, and is one of our favorite trends because it’s also functional. Gone are the days of tubs tucked into corners of the bathroom. Freestanding tubs can create a modern focal point, and don’t have to fit within traditional boundaries. What’s more, they come in a much wider variety of shapes and sizes, making bath-time fun again for everyone.

The Lawn-less Lawn

This year, the eco-friendly, low maintenance trend of ditching that full-blown lawn for a landscape of native plants will take over the world. All-grass lawns require wild amounts of water to keep green, as well as near-constant mowing in sunny months. But with a little research or the help of a local landscape architect, you can rid yourself of the lawn woes and create a stunning and much more vibrant area for the front or back of your home.

Black is the New White Wall

Dark paint is in. While you may feel most comfortable starting with a dark gray, black is suspected to become the number one paint color for design-savvy homes in 2014. Try painting one accent wall dark and see what you think. Or peruse Pinterest for a few minutes to get an idea of just how good a dark wall can make a room look.

 

The Biltmore Collection is Here!

A little while back, we wrote a post detailing the upcoming new arrival of the Biltmore Collection to the Paul Schatz Furniture floor. And as promised, it’s now arrived, just in time for the holidays! We now have the Balustrade Round Dining Table and the Madeira Beverage Cabinet for you to come in and take a look at. In the meantime, watch the video above to get a unique behind-the-scenes look into where the Biltmore Collection drew its inspiration from.

Grounded in beauty and refinement, the spirit of Biltmore is captured in every stylish detail and exquisite element of these furnishings.
