Yup, you read it right. Los Angeles-based furniture maker Thrive sells Elvis-era 1950’s style retro furniture online named after American Presidents. I understand the Nixon Collection and Eisenhower and Kennedy atomic-era references, but Grover Cleveland as a mid-century modern design muse?
Ironically, the Cleveland is the most
space-age and flamboyant piece of all. Everything is handmade in L.A. and ships curbside/lobby side for free, $300 if you want it actually schlepped into your house or apartment.
Taking a page from Zappo’s 365 day free shipping return policy, Thrive gives you a year to decide if you love your Grover or Tricky Dick pieces.
The company only sells online, offers many upholstery choices and you can preview fabric swatches for free by snail mail. Production time is 3 weeks.
Jefferson is also on the roster but me thinks he never had this at Monticello.
