GREENE concept is pleased to participate in the multi-designer Spruce Up Your Space event, beginning this weekend and running through Saturday, April 3. The theme this month is “Straight Out Of the Trailer Extravaganza!”, and this set actually does get you out of the trailer in a way that is familiar to trailer dwellers and campers everywhere – the classic green awning, lawn chairs, and artificial turf ground cover. We’ve given you two comfy outdoor sofas with sit animations to decorate your space – but there’s plenty of room to add your own personal touches to make your trailer a home. Pick up your set at the discounted price of 99L$ now thru April 3, only at the new GREENE concept store at Maquapit.

It’s hard to imagine that only two years ago, GREENE concept was barely a thought and a glimmer of a plan in the minds of Peter Stindberg and Ivanova Shostakovich. This weekend we open our newest store on the Mainland, in the lovely Maquapit region. This is a project we have held near and dear to our hearts for many months. The newly renovated store is now open for business, even as we continue putting on the finishing touches. You’ll find all your favorite GREENE concept designs here, but we are proud to now offer them in more streamlined, and attractively priced options.

This weekend also marks our first offering in the Spruce Up Your Space event … offered only at the new Maquapit store. The event itself is a great way to explore home and interior design style across the grid, and pick up a few bargains of your own. Watch this space for more information coming this weekend about GREENE concept’s contribution to this month’s theme “Straight Out Of the Trailer Extravaganza!”

1 year GREENE concept
Even though we officially founded GREENE concept in March, we spent the first three months developing only. We officially launched our brand towards end June 2008 – so by now we are 1 year old. There will be some new releases coming down shortly – for now we have marked down many products in our mainshop to 99, 149, 199, 399 and 599 L$.

Come and visit our shop in Beachwood and check out the promotions!

GREENE concept booth at Home & Garden ExpoIvanova has been creating with a vengeance lately, so we have many new items to show. There is the Emphasis Bench – an addition to our Emphasis chair line. The Twisted Bench for couples, and a series of new tables. And we donated two of our topsellers for the benefit of RFL Cancer Reserach.

We look forward to welcome you on the GREENE concept booth – direct teleport is here: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Rhodium/68/29/61

A while ago, Elle Kirshner of Second Spaces offered us a spot in a new and cozy shopping village next to her store and club. We experimented a bit with satellite locations lately, but the results are mixed. So I was a bit reluctant. However when I TPed there, I was impressed by the beautiful look of the place.

For the upcoming St. Patrick’s weekend, Elle has planned sort of an official opening event for the place. Each of the stores was asked to offer a free item, and of course GREENE concept participates as well.

Please join us in the hunt for the golden pots at Carribean City!

Refusal hurts

February 22, 2009

We recently applied to participate in the Bunny Hop gridwide hunt. As a unique thing in SL hunts, the organizers do not simply enlist all shops that want to participate, but make oyu apply and then either accept or refuse you. Unfortunately, we got refused.

“The selection is based on these follow categories:
1. quality
2. display
3. uniqueness
4. copyright infringement
You might have been declined due to one or more of the reasons above.”

This hurts very much. Had they said “we don’t want furniture shop” or had they said “your stuff looks ugly” or “your stuff is too expensive”, I would have understood. However given the criteria above, I really can’t understand why we got refused.

  1. Our items are of highest possible quality. We only release something new every couple of months because we are extremely keen on quality. Countless times items get revised because we tweak the quality – often in parts of the furniture that are not even visible at first.
  2. While our display was indeed poor a couple of months ago, now, that the landlord finally changed the plaza back, I am very happy with the display. Our shop is well structured, easily to overview, the items are clearly labeled and all of them can be tested in the store.
  3. Reviewers have often said the GREENE concept furniture is very unique, not only due to innovative concepts and designs, but also due to unique approaches to seat poses or menus.
  4. All of the GREENE concept furniture is a unique and individual design. Only the Emphasis chair is inspired by a RL piece of furniture – with acknowledgement and permission of the RL company who builds it.

I sent the organizers a notecard and asked for a little bit more input.  Still I am confused, hurt and sad about the decision. Refusal hurts, especially when it seems unfair.
