Jungle Fever

April 24, 2010

Raooorrrrrrrr….. This month’s “Spruce up your Space” theme “animal prints” has dropped us deep into mystical jungles and desertes savannahs. With an almost 70ies like plushiness we find accessories right out of Daktari or a James Bond movie. All transfer items at 50L, all copy items at 150L only through the weekend! Get them at our mainstore in Maquapit!

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.

In honor of St. Patrick

March 16, 2010

Ivanova, GC and I are very, very busy preparing our new shop and new items for the relaunch we plan for April. We will have some exciting things coming up, and we will participate at the Home & Garden Expo again as well as being a designer for the Spruce Up events. So look out for some newness.

In the meantime, in honor of the National Saint of the Irish (Ivanova has some Irish blood, and yours truly is a huge fan of everything Celtic) I would like to bring our all time popular item – the 4-seater Berlin cushionsofachairseat in this wonderful St. Paddy inspired design to your attention again.

Available in our Beachwood location as well as on XStreet SL for 173 L$ (as in 17.3. – the date of St. Patrick).

Enjoy!

We ain’t dead yet

February 15, 2010

Hello everybody who faithfully still has this blog in their readers. GREENE concept is not dead yet. Admittedly you have not heard a lot from us lately. It’s that pesky RL that often gets between things. However we have lots of goodness coming up and we are planning a relaunch in March, right for our 2 year anniversary. Right now we are working on our new mainshop on the nice mainland spot we bought. But there is more to come.

What is new and will be released soon is:

  • A set of new 3-seater couches, in a nice retro styled wood&fabric design
  • A set of very modern and unusual office furniture, stretching the imagination, consisting of desks, shelves and accessories
  • A very elegant and classic lines of padded chairs

Right now we’re also investigating the participation in some special events and promotions.

So, stay tuned, we ain’t dead yet!

The Home, Garden and Patio Expo runs until Sunday, and I asked my friends Zeeva and Angela to help me show off our new items:

Emphasis and Twisty bench

To the left is the new Emphasis bench, styled along the lines of the Emphasis chairs, and equipped with a color change menu. It seats 3 avatars. On the right is the Twisty bench for two people.

Bubble Chair

The Bubble Chair is based on a design by my friend Gina Glimmer and was lingering in our workshop for ages. We finally finalized it and but a nifty particle effect in it. The textures on the bubbles are animated, as well as the sitting pose.

Coffee table set

While the Emphasis chairs are not new, the associated coffee table is. It looks especially beautiful with the silver Emphasis chairs, which is why we packaged it into a set for 200 L$ (basically buy 4, get one for free).

Dining Table

The new dining tables were blogged already yesterday, but Zeeva and Angela looked so cute sitting on them (sitting poses included) so I post them again.

All items are available on the Home, Garden and Patio Expo (SLURL).

Dinner anyone?

Irish Love

March 15, 2009

Irish Love - GREENE concept Berlin St. Patrick

I am a friend of all things Celtic, and apart from Scotland Ireland is one of my most favourite countries. Ivanova even has Irish roots – her red hair and her love for all things green are living proof for that. So it’s no surprise we made a special edition of our Berlin sofa to commemorate St. Patrick’s Day (March 17), the most important Irish holiday. Find this special edition in any of our shops, or on Xstreet SL.

GREENE concept Berlin "Valentine"

Right in time for Valentine (oh, that rhymes), Ivanova has put finishing touches on our special edition of the Berlin sofa. Why not whisk your special someone off for a cuddle on this special Berlin sculpt sofa for Valentines? This prim efficient couples sofa features 6 changeable animations for you and your partner to spend time intimately in your Second Life. This nouvelle chair certainly features a certain je ne sais quoi and definite aww factor. The poses in this sofa are made by our friend Laleeta Xue of Pffiou! Available in our mainshop in Beachwood as well as at all satellite stores and on Xstreet SL.

Bye Bye onrez 50% closing sale by GREENE conceptThe web shopping portal onrez will shut down on February 11th. Linden Lab has bought both of the competing platforms – onrez and Xstreet SL – and onrez will be the casuality of this move. I personally regret this for various reasons: not only did onrez had the better user interface from a merchants perspective, it also charged no commission fees for sales. I hope Linden Lab will save some of the features of onrez and implement them on the Xstreet SL platform.

To show our gratitude towards onrez and its users, for the remaining time we have marked down all our items listed by 50%.

That’s right – get everything by GREENE concept which is listed on onrez (which is basically everything except the new Emphasis chairs) for half the price! I will pull the plug some time on the 10th as Linden Lab announced balances do not get withdrawn automatically.

Click here to access our onrez storefront with the 50% sale items.

Bye, bye onrez – it has been a nice time. Thank you!
