New furniture collection from Angelo Surmelis



You already know about Angelo Surmelis if you watch the wildly successful Rate My Space on HGTV.

You might have seen Angelo's own kitchen remodel featured in my Pardon Our Dust series for the L.A. Times.

Now there's even more Angelo to love as he unveils his own furniture line, angelo:HOME. The first pieces, leather "Garbo Chairs" seen her, are available only to Costco members at You get two chairs for $580 and that includes shipping.

Here's what Angelo says about the Garbo Chairs:

cool thing about my job is that I can try to create what I have always wanted.
For years I've searched for the perfect pair of leather chairs that would work
in a particular seating area. The challenge was finding something that fit
a few different criteria. Not too big and bulky, contemporary enough to feel
current, yet not trendy… somewhat traditional in order to have timeless
appeal, and a price that felt like I wasn't being extravagant. Well, I never
found that combination. There were certainly many amazing chairs to choose from
but nothing that hit all of the notes. That is why I designed my Garbo chair…
it comes in a rich chocolate bonded leather with beautiful espresso stained
wooden legs. The only thing better, is that is offering a pair of
them for less than you normally can find just one. Who doesn't love that?!"

The rest of the line, such as the yellow chair Angelo is sitting on above, will be available at Aug. 10 and from and on Aug. 17. I'll keep you posted.
