    INTRODUCING: Gabby

    February 23, 2012 | Posted By: | Blog |

    From Linden Tree’s 2012 AWAKEN Collection line, we introduce: Gabby.

    A gorgeous, jaw-dropping beauty, this stunning armoire is a one of a kind masterpiece. The deep royalty purple is a perfect match with the muted gray interior. A cream toned leafy wallpaper lines the shelves and drawer giving this piece a gentle touch.

    This armoire is named after Gabby. Here’s her story: Quiet and reserved, yet strong in many ways.  Gabby adores her mom and clings to her for the love and validation she didn’t get from her dad.  Everyday she moves closer to a better understanding that her heavenly father loves her despite of the absence of her dad in her life.

    From Linden Tree’s 2012 AWAKEN Collection line, we introduce: Nachalye.

    This lovely deep navy blue distressed wood buffet is topped with a shiny beige marble top and clear glass knobs. Such a delicate combination. Great for use in a dining room or even as an entry or foyer piece. The drawers and hidden side trays are lined with a beautiful yellow print wallpaper.

    This buffet is named after Nachalye. Here’s her story: As the daughter of a teenaged mother, money has always been tight. So tight in fact, that she had never been shopping before coming into Taylor’s Closet. Nachelye has never met her father. She longs to feel important, to know that she’s special.

    From Linden Tree’s 2012 REVEAL Collection line, we introduce: Kerry Ann.

    Clean lines and a sharp overall look make this gray mid-century modern wood desk a fantastic piece. The neutral tones fit great with any room’s color scheme. The dark gray and white floral wallpaper on top is the focal point of the piece. The 7 drawers are all lined with the same eco-friendly wallpaper.

    This desk is named after Kerry Ann. Here’s her story: Kerry Ann’s hopelessness was overwhelming to her.  How could she move forward and believe her life could change when everything seemed impossible?  With just a few sessions of the Awaken mentoring classes, she got a glimpse of hope and suddenly she began to take steps forward to a new life.

    This credenza is named after Lisa Marie. Here’s her story: Lisa Marie cried the first time we (at Taylor’s Closet) hugged her. She has such a gentle and sweet spirit.

    Introducing the first 2012 Linden Tree REVEAL Collection piece: Lindsay.

    What a beautiful and simple transformation!

A wonderful addition to any bedroom.

    This dresser is named after Lindsay. This is her story: After giving birth to a beautiful baby girl, she finally felt like life had a new meaning.  Coming from an abusive relationship, she has found a new hope in being a good mom.  She has chosen to look forward and begin a new life.

    Sneak Peek: Kerry Ann

    February 6, 2012 | Posted By: | Blog |

    So we went thriting this month in search of some new pieces for our February Showing coming up. Let me tell you, God set us up! On our way to the Salvation Army thrift store we had to stop for a looooong passing train. Well, being the extra-patient people that we are, we decide to drive around it. Good thing we did because just as we arrived at the thrift store a pick up truck with a father & son team were about to donate this desk & a marble-top buffet (that we will give you a sneak peek of shortly) to the Salvation Army. Out of curiosity we asked them if they had just bought these pieces or if they were dropping them off as a donation. They replied that they just wanted to give them away and get them out of their truck already! We happily offered to take these pieces off their hands. Not just that, these kind men even drove the pieces to our store (just a few blocks north of the thrift store). So fun how this all went down.

    So with great pleasure, here’s a sneak peak of Kerry Ann – this great, solid wood mid-century modern desk. Kerry Ann, of course, is the name of one of the girls that shops at Taylor’s Closet.

    Here’s her story: Kerry Ann’s hopelessness was overwhelming to her.  How could she move forward and believe her life could change when everything seemed impossible?  With just a few sessions of the Awaken mentoring classes, she got a glimpse of hope and suddenly she began to take steps forward to a new life.

    Furniture Stamp

    January 17, 2012 | Posted By: | Blog |

    Our Linden Tree logo furniture stamp is in! And, it’s oh-so pretty. It will go great with our earth-friendly water-based ink (in comparison with oil-based or alcohol-based inks that aren’t so environmentally kind).

    Did you know that the actual “linden tree” produces oil that aids in the healing process? That to us is so special as it perfectly ties into the work that is done with the foster care girls at Taylor’s Closet.
