At Vastu, you’ll have the opportunity to take 15% off all new Steven Anthony custom upholstered furniture orders. That includes chairs, sofas, sectionals, ottomans and beds!
Don’t know where to start when it comes to personalizing your own furniture? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Check out this short “how-to” blog post on how to order your own Steven Anthony piece from Vastu during the Dog Days Sale.
Today was a fun day for deliveries! We just received two new pieces for the floor.
The first is the Tres Night Table from the Tres line we wrote about back in August. It looks awesome! Totally slick and streamlined, but with some noticeable substance to it. We especially love the thin drawer handles.
The second piece we unpacked for you all to come and see is the Lexington End Table.
Made of polished stainless steel and a polished/coated glass top, this great side table looks and feels glamorous.
We know you’ve been waiting to see pictures of Eric’s rooms since his episode of Showhouse Showdown premiered on September 12th. Especially if you weren’t able to catch it or DVR it. Well continue on below to see photos of Eric’s designs and a list of products shown in each room!
In anticipation for the weekend, we thought we’d put together a short how-to for buying Steven Anthony furniture so you can get your 20% discount during the MidCity Dog Days sale!
Step 1: Choose a style.
Steven Anthony builds custom sofas, sectionals, chairs, dining chairs, benches, ottomans and beds. Within these different categories are several styles and variations.
Step 2: Indicate a size and/or dimensions.
All sofas and sectionals are available in any length in 6 inch increments (e.g. 60″, 66″, 72″, etc). Benches, ottomans, and upholstered beds are fully customizable to any dimension (think length, width, and height).
Step 3: Select a fabric or leather and color.
If you’ve ever stopped by the Vastu showroom, than chances are pretty high that you’ve noticed the two very large walls full of fabric samples. Steven Anthony pieces can be done in fabric or in any leather. All you have to do is choose one that fits within your space.
Step 4: Decide on finishing details.
When we say our Steven Anthony pieces are fully customizable, we mean it. You can choose between metal or wood legs, the color stain used on wood, the height of your legs, the number of seat and back cushions on your sofa or sectional, whether or not they’re tufted, the firmness (or softness) of your cushions, and finally the seams! All of these variables can instantly change the look of the final product.
Step 5: Pay and get your 20% Off Dog Days sale discount!
To receive your Dog Days discount, you do have to place your order during this weekend. With 20% off, you could be saving hundreds off a one-of-a-kind piece of custom furniture!
If you still need help narrowing down all your choices during the Dog Days weekend, just find a Vastu staff member and we’ll be happy to provide any advice or assistance you may need.

With heat advisories lasting well into the evening today, we’re not advocating you spend a whole lot of time outside. However, we shouldn’t allow this summertime heat to completely deprive us of enjoying our outdoor spaces (if you’re so lucky to have one). With that in mind, check out these great outdoor pieces…if you can handle the heat, that is.
It’s official. Summer is here. Never mind that DC has been experiencing summer-like heat for weeks now…
Let’s start the day with some great images of contemporary outdoor spaces.
What’s that you hear? No, it’s not your local drumming circle…it’s our new Drum Ottomans from Steven Anthony! This pair of ottomans come straight from California and are constructed with the same quality and attention to detail that Steven bestows upon the great sofas, sectionals and chairs we carry.
Designed by Yves Béhar and sold by Herman Miller, the Sayl work chair is quickly becoming known for its “performance, ergonomics, quality, and appearance.” Made from 93% recyclable materials and weighing only 37 pounds, the Sayl chair can be customized to fit your aesthetic needs, as well as your physical (with adjustable seat angle and depth, arm height, and lumbar support options available).
We ordered our showroom chair in the Studio White suspension back, the Fog armpads and the Green Apple Crossing fabric seat. Stay tuned to find out when you can stop by and try the revolutionary Sayl chair.
