back to school … only better!

I’m signing off for a few days, as I am heading to Hickory Chair University tomorrow … where I’ll have the pleasure of learning all about how Hickory Chair’s products are MADE (not manufactured).  I cannot wait to experience their craftsmanship in person.  A huge thanks to Laura Holland and the entire Hickory Chair team for inviting me to participate!  Don’t worry – I plan to bring you along.  You can be sure I’ll share everything with you here … in exacting detail.  You’ll feel like you were there, too, I promise.  But, if you just can’t wait until my blog post comes out, follow me on Twitter (@tracizeller) for the blow-by-blow!

Until I’m back, let me leave you with a totally fabulous bedroom furnished entirely by Hickory Chair.  Isn’t it delicious?  That gorgeous bed is the Candler King Bed designed by Suzanne Kasler.  The fabric on the chairs is called “Daisy, Daisy” and is a David Hicks by Ashley Hicks design for Groundworks (Lee Jofa).  I would definitely have sweet dreams if I got to sleep in this room every night!

Try not to drool … and I’ll see you back here on Wednesday!

    I look forward to your report. My husband is from Hickory and I know lots of people in that generation of furniture makers too. So nice to See you doing what I remember being cottage industries way back when. My dad would love to hear the enthusiasm in your voice if he were alive today. I wish he was alive to hear it! You are so talented~ have fun and can't wait to see what you have in store for us.
