Closing Out 2018

Elizabeth Tobin

Farewell 2018, Welcome, 2019!

As we enter the new year, we want to take a look back at what made this year so special at SYD + SAM. A new furniture line, a major shop reno, and internally designing our own windows displays, it’s safe to say we’ve had our hands full. But, it’s been the best year yet and to watch our store grow everyday feels so rewarding. Read more below about what we’re proud of from 2018 and what we’re looking forward to in 2019.

SYD+SAM Furniture Line


The Furniture line is MADE IN THE USA, completely custom, and available in multiple fabric options. Learn more about the products under the Custom Furniture Line Page! These pieces will fit into your decor seamlessly, whether in a living space, accenting a bedroom, or in an entryway or reading nook. We have both pieces on display at the shop, come take a look and we can help you decide what works for your home and personal style. See what our owner had to say!

I wanted to design pieces that are clean and timeless and would fit into any design project, whether it was modern or traditional.”
— Emily Pinney, Store Owner and Principal of Pinney Designs

Shop Make over


This past year at SYD + SAM, we went through a bit of a makeover! We installed new white shelving, our SYD + SAM custom furniture is now on display, along with our beautiful Amaya beaded mirror, our round Natalia coffee table is currently on display styled with our products for the new year.

We’ve expanded our product lines and inventory, including carrying more table top and styling books, paper goods (check out our Appointed and Rifle paper Co. Notebooks), and ceramics by Terrafirma.

In House Seasonal Window Displays

Our window displays this year were inventive, collaborative, and full of festive seasonal energy. 2018 was an especially diverse year, full of botanical inspired displays that utilized the entire window. We can’t wait to show you what we have in store for 2019!

Happy New Year from SYD + SAM!

Shop Talk!

Elizabeth Tobin

To say it has been a crazy couple of months is an understatement. In March we dropped the first two pieces of our furniture line, the Sydney Sofa and the Samantha Swivel. The concept behind the line is to bring a product that would typically be available to interior designers and make it accessible to our everyday customers.

Things are looking up!

We also installed new floor to ceiling shelving in April. The clean lines of the shelves add a new, inviting dynamic to our shop. The shelving allowed us to use the high ceilings in our space to our advantage. It's so fun to look back at when we first opened and see how much we've grown! This year we are making a conscious effort to transition our store into a shop that plays like a gift store and works as an interior design showroom for the public. Curating that balance has been the funnest part! Click on the images below to see what new accent pieces we have in shop!

Sweet Summertime

For this summer seasons window installation we wanted to take last years design a step further. Made up of paper cutouts of varying shapes and sizes, we used depth and height to turn our windows into an urban jungle! Check out our urban jungle board in pinterest to see how we gathered inspration for this design!
