Workin' for the Weekend

Happy Friday!!

This week has been about fabrics, pillows, and outdoor furniture. Summertime is the best opportunity to sell some outdoor decor and furniture pieces. We have been selecting chairs, sofas, rugs, and decor for Melanie Dobel's back patio. After searching through Dash and Albert, Worlds Away, J. Henry, and our other vendors, we finally came up with some selections for Dobel to review. This has been exciting for me to research; since outdoor items must hold up to the heat of Mississippi and the crazy weather that our summer afternoons bring.

It's been so much fun working on Melanie's home and she is loving every inch of it so far! We can't wait to show her what we selected for her patio. I'll be sure to include some pictures next week so y'all can check it out too!

Have a fantastic weekend!

Workin' on Dobel

Hello all!

So, we've been slowing down here at Lounge. Work and jobs have been dwindling with everyone on vacation and away at the beach. However, our biggest client right now, Melanie Dobel, has just ordered a ton more for her home in Madison. Elizabeth and I went out to her house today to do a couple of things for her. We took 6 carpet tiles that are in her small office off her kitchen; it was a more reasonable price then buying an expensive rug to put in a room that many people won't even go in. We had to measure them out and place them, and trim them with a box cutter accordingly. After finally getting the perfect fit, it looks so great and the client is so happy!

After that, we placed her two euros and lumbar pillow for the guest room that finally came in from the workroom; and they were absolutely fabulous. The lumbar pillow was the fabric that I selected a few weeks ago for Melanie and she loved it! Also, Elizabeth and I measured to see how much space we had to put a night stand in the same room and left Melanie printed out selections for her to choose from.

Lastly, we finally moved on to the last tasks: measuring for a dining room rug and seat cushions for her table in the kitchen. To be sure that the rug Melanie wanted under the table wasn't going to compete with the cowhide rug close by, we measured to see what size would fit best.

Hopefully as July comes closer to an end, more people will be coming in for jobs; before my internship here is complete. Check back tomorrow for one more post before the weekend hits. 

Hope y'all's Thursday was as fabulous as mine has been!
