Next week is the High Point Furniture Market in North Carolina.
For a change, we are driving instead of flying. It is a trip of a thousand miles that will take us several days instead of several hours. Then, I noticed that we are going through Memphis, that’s right, Memphis, Tennessee. Just like Johnny Cash, Memphis, Tennessee. Why, in 1954, Johnny Cash moved to Memphis, where he sold appliances, while studying to be a radio announcer. And yes, was discovered at Sun Records, and where he recorded, Going to Memphis.
Not his most memorable song, but a good one.
If you want to stay in Memphis, then you need go no further than your living room.
That is, if you have the new Memphis sofa by Stickley. Did you see that coming?
It makes a dramatic statement. Rich, distressed leather, specially made in Savoy leather in Royal or Tobacco. A broad six-inch track arm and block feet give it modern lines and a commanding presence, while deep, ultra-plush seat cushions invite you to sink in and stay home.
