Clubfurniture.com Selected By Top New York Interior Designers To Furnish New York Spaces Magazine Show House

Leading online retailer provides upscale furnishings for the renovations of a turn-of-the-century Victorian home

Charlotte, NC, March 14, 2006 - Clubfurniture.com, a leading online retailer of high-quality, handcrafted, domestically-manufactured furniture and accessories, announced today that its furnishings have been selected by some of metro New York’s top interior designers for use in the restoration of a turn-of-the-century Victorian home on Boulevard East; a popular historic street just minutes from Manhattan. The project, called The New Jersey ShowHouse™, is featured in a pictorial in the latest edition of New York Spaces Magazine. Clubfurniture provided a Brooke sofa, chair and ottoman in vanilla velvet for the second-floor family room, which was designed by Ali Barone, from TLC’s “While You Were Out.” New York Spaces Magazine recently hosted showings of the New Jersey Show House with proceeds donated to selected charities serving Greater New Jersey and New York. “In renovating such a luxurious home in a historical neighborhood you want classic and chic designs that will withstand the test of time, and Clubfurniture offers exactly what we needed,” said Ali Barone. “I have received a lot of compliments on the room, and when people ask me my honest opinion of the furniture, I tell them that not only do I look forward to the possibility of working with Clubfurniture on future projects, but I am going to use their furnishings for the renovation of my own home.” “We truly appreciate the opportunity to be involved with such a prestigious project involving some of the top designers in the industry,” said, Darrin M. King, president of Clubfurniture.com. “Our customers are always telling us that they select our furniture for our unique designs and the high-quality materials we use, and it is great that we are starting to gain more national exposure with high-profile organizations for exactly those same reasons.” About clubfurniture.com Founded by brothers Darrin and Jeff King in 1998, clubfurniture.com is a leading retailer of Internet and catalogue home furnishings.
