I mentioned a few weeks back that my day job is marketing for companies. My company is called ScribeTree, which you can find here. I named it ScribeTree because I provide content marketing - including social media - for my clients. It is my new passion and I work hard everyday along with teammates Mike and Greg to help companies be found on the internet.
One of my clients is the owner of URHOUZZ, a furniture company out of West Bloomfield, Michigan. You can read more about URHOUZZ here and here.
It's quite a pleasure helping URHOUZZ get some attention online because of my background in interior design. But, what's more important, I have gotten to know Rob Evina, the owner, over the last few months and he has proven to be someone very capable and deserving of success. His knowledge of business and concept of customer relationships is stellar. I want him to be successful because he works incredibly hard and deserves it.
I'll stop my gushing now and show you some photos of his products, which are pretty incredible themselves. All of these products can be found on his websites www.woodlandcreekfurniture.com and www.urhouzz.com. His URHOUZZ website is being remodeled and the new version will have a much more extensive product display.
(Make sure you read to the end of this post to learn about how to win a $5000 gift certificate for his Grand Opening on September 26th, as well as a $250 gift certificate through his Facebook contest!)
Rob founded his business more than a decade ago because he wanted to design unique, handcrafted furniture, while traveling the world during his career. He’s visited most of Eastern and Western Europe and Asia in search of unique accessories and furniture made from exotic woods.
Every piece manufactured by Woodland Creek Furniture and sold in their brand new West Bloomfield location will be beautifully crafted from reclaimed woods or responsibly harvested materials. More than 50 percent of their products are made in the U.S., and they’re proudly committed to manufacturing more than 30 percent in their Michigan workshop.
Any products that are sourced from abroad have been strategically selected based on a shared commitment to unique design, quality, and sustainability. These companies have pledged to manufacture furniture using reclaimed woods or fast-growing, sustainable plantation woods.
Setting them apart from their competitors, approximately 90 percent of the furniture
URHOUZZ sells will be entirely customizable in both size and finish.
Evina presently operates three retail stores and has a growing internet business (ScribeTree!). “Thanks to this little invention called the Internet, small businesses can compete with the big box stores.”
Rob's plan is simple..."listening to the customer, and designing and
crafting quality furniture that makes the customer smile."
URHOUZZ is opening their doors September 1st and their
Grand Opening Celebration will take place on September 26th.
Come by the new store to check out their extensive line of urban,
contemporary, cottage, old world and traditional furniture.
Here is a peek inside the new showroom!
URHOUZZ has many beautiful pieces of hand-crafted goods,
most of the customizable to fit your home.
Urban contemporary pieces are available and can be mixed with natural wood pieces
for a great mix of warm and cool.
URHOUZZ case goods are very versatile and unique.
The unique URHOUZZ designs will be the talk (and envy) of your neighborhood.
There are also many traditional styles available with contemporary touches.
The new showroom is loaded with vignettes of living rooms, dining rooms and more.
I predict that URHOUZZ furniture will become a part of many more American homes.
