With the holidays upon us, we at Creative Living wanted to deviate from design advice and product to share with you those aspects of our little urban oasis in Denver for which we are most thankful and share with you a few of our favorite things.

MICHELINE  //  Mom to two, active teen-aged boys and a small business owner, anything that can take the edge off is welcomed. Running water – the look of it, the sound of it, the feel of it – makes Micheline happy, particularly the hand-carved stone fountains by Greg Roberson which are exclusive to Creative Living.  
Micheline is thankful to be in the heart of the Santa Fe Arts district of Denver where she can help local and aspiring artists ensure that their work is seen by displaying it in our showroom. Unlike a gallery, we position artwork in conjunction with a vignette or outdoor setting to show clients how they might incorporate artwork into their own space. Micheline is fond of modern, funky sculpture and painting and as a big fan of street art, she is especially fond of the various graffiti exhibits in this neighborhood (except when they occur, without invitation, on the exterior walls of the store).

STEPHANIE  //  Stephanie is grateful for the Creative Living team and their efforts to make sure every potential client is given the time and expertise to help them with their outdoor project. Regardless of whether they make a purchase, her sincere hope is that each person walks out of the showroom being creatively inspired and having learned something to assist in the creation of their dream space.

Another item on Stephanie’s gratitude list is the quantity of customizable options and short lead times we have on our furniture lines here at Creative Living.  A one-of-a-kind piece is the ultimate way to personalize your outdoor space. When planning and designing a space, having over 150 top-choice Sunbrella fabrics help us to appreciate each client’s style and finish a space as they envisioned.

SANDY  //  As the primary caretaker of the showroom and courtyard, Sandy is always tickled to make her way into work. The building (a former auto-body shop) and the courtyard create a Zen environment, in spite of sharing a lot with a highly-trafficked convenience store and a multitude of colorful characters. At work, Sandy arranges, displays, organizes, prunes, edits and cleans so that our furniture, water features, fire pits, planters and other products are seen in their very best light. Why is it so much more fun to do those tasks at work than it is do them at home???

Also, on Sandy’s grateful list is the warranty by one of our premier furniture lines Telescope Casual. In a world of one, two and three-year warranties, Telescope Casual provides a 15-year residential warranty from a company with the same family ownership for more than 115 years. It is a pleasure to say ‘yes’ if a Telescope client finds themselves in need of attention from their outdoor furniture manufacturer.

We are all truly grateful for your support this past year and look forward to your visit in 2020! Happy Holidays!
