Cyber Week Sale-a-Thon

Putting products on sale feels so good, we had to devote a whole week to it. We’re calling it Cyber Week, and it includes three big sales: 1) First things first: Right now, anything and everything you buy from Smart Furniture will come to you with free shipping. That’s right, free shipping. When you’re shopping for your holiday gifts and home decor, you don’t need shipping costs hanging over your head. So we’re getting rid of them. From now until Monday, November 29th, everything on the site comes with free shipping. 2) Our tenth anniversary Smart Shelves sale is still ongoing, and it doesn’t end until November 30th. From now until that date all of our signature Smart Shelves, beautiful organizational pieces that put the design in your hands, are 25% off. You read that right. We’re cutting the cost by a full quarter, and we’re giving you free shipping to boot. Don’t say we never did you any favors, ok?

NEW Embody Chair Video Review

Check out the new Embody Chair Video Review on our website (and YouTube):

We asked the guys at to give us a thorough and independent review of the Embody Chair, essentially video versions of the written reviews they've been doing for a while now. They really came through with this one - informative, and accurate. We’re going to start commissioning lots of these video reviews to help our customers choose the right chair for them, and separate the wheat from the chaff. Coming next: Aeron, Nelson Swag Leg, the LCW, the Eames Lounge Chair, Mirra, Setu, and many others.

Your comments are welcome on our youtube page.

You can also watch the videos on our facebook page .

Stressless Grand Opening at the Studio

We’re full of celebrations this week!

Ekornes Stressless

On Thursday we’re having a party and a giveaway to mark the grand opening of our new line of Ekornes Stressless Chairs. The event will be at the Smart Furniture Studio (313 Manufacturers Road, Suite 107), and we’ll be serving wine, hors d'oeuvres, and smoked salmon. There’s also going to be a lottery; all you have to do is sign up, and you’ll have a chance to win a brand new Stressless Chair.

This is a truly exciting line of lounge chairs. They move and recline automatically, they read your body to make you more comfortable, and when you sit in them you’re always perfectly balanced. We’ve never sat in a recliner this comfortable, and that’s really saying something.

We hope you come out and enjoy the party with us, and we’d love the opportunity to give away a Stressless! Free food and wine, free party, free chair; what’s not to love? Come see us on Thursday, November 4th.

Celebrate 10 Years with Smart Furniture

If you didn’t already know (and why wouldn’t you?) this month marks Smart Furniture's 10-year anniversary. That’s right, it was ten years ago that a young Stanford Law student by the name of Stephen Culp was hit with the inspiration for our flagship product: Smart Shelves. The idea behind Smart Shelves was to make furniture that put design into the hands of the customer, a concept we called Design On Demand. We wanted to break down the barrier between the company and the customer, and designer and the consumer. Ten years later, we’ve accomplished those goals, and established some new ones. From a single storage facility in California to a warehouse, studio and corporate office in Chattanooga, we’ve come a long way. When we thought about how we wanted to celebrate our big milestone, our thoughts turned to the people who got us where we are, and the people we started this company to serve: You. Our customers took Design On Demand and ran with it, and our customers helped turn us into one of the premier online furniture sellers in the country. Our customers made our partnerships with dealers like Herman Miller and Steelcase successful, and our customers are the reason we opened a studio to sell our products directly. When we think back over ten great years, years that made this company what it is today, we think about how we began, and who we relied on. We began with a revolutionary idea for shelving, and we relied on the intelligence and creativity of our customers. That’s why we want to celebrate both by announcing, beginning November 1st, a 25% off sale on all of our Smart Shelves, still the flagship product of our company. We figure this will give folks who already have the shelves a good opportunity to get a few more, and newbies the chance to get their first set. One more thing, for the people who’ve been with us for ten years: Thank You.
