About SittinPrettyByMyleen

Sales 680
On Etsy since 2015

Refinished French & Italian original antiques with updated fabrics for your home or business to be Sittin' Pretty.

I started my business because i wanted to bring something different to my home. After purchasing my first 10 pieces from Europe, my friends and family went crazy asking me to bring more pieces. They couldn't stop complimenting me on how different and unique my pieces were and how they looked in my house. It truly changed the way they viewed "antiques". When you think of antiques, most of the time you think of old pieces from our Great-grandparents. I'm in my early 30's and my friends didn't understand why i was buying old furniture. I found a warehouse in Europe that could refinish my frames and basically bring them to live. I then brought each piece from Europe and started to reupholster them using velvet's, leather and eye catching colors that would really make a statement.

I remember my first order having to file paperwork with US Customs and hiring a broker to clear my items and get them entered in to the USA. My first 20 pieces sold within 2-3 weeks. My first client was a woman by the name of Nydia. I remember telling her how nervous i was because i had never done this before. She told me "your pieces are beautiful and they will sell fast".

After 4 years in this business, I now know what my clients want and I work with talented partners. We have expanded to include custom orders where buyers are welcomed to send us their own fabrics. We now offer Flex-Pay capabilities to make it easier for our clients to buy items from us.

Oh yes and to my followers :-) I love you guys! We have close to 25K organic followers between our IG, FB, Twitter, Pinterest and of course Etsy. I was terrible about posting photos but now i sort of get the hang of it. I know my followers love "them" videos so i promise to make more for you. I still get excited when i get messages on social media from followers asking me if i sell furniture lol... i love it! But i think is work in progress just like everything you do in life. I work very hard. My clients know this because i usually answer them within minutes unless is late at night. I do everything with love and enjoy when i get photos from our clients showing my items in their space and seeing how everything comes together.

Thank you to everyone that makes Sittin' Pretty possible.

With love,
Myleen

    Owner

    Born in Miami from Cuban decent parents. Mommy of 3 with a degree in Graphic Design with an eye for stylish pieces using a mix of colors. I didn't find this path...this path found me! While looking to furnish my home, i wanted something original and got tired of looking at my local furniture stores to only find the same stuff. I stumbled into this style and instantly fell in love and thought "How many people would love to be Sittin' Pretty?" My pieces are sourced in Europe, are unique, and makes each home feel more special.

At Sittin' Pretty by Myleen, we strive to be a 5 star seller. I buy items directly from Europe and bring them in containers to save on shipping cost and pass on the savings to my buyers. My philosophy is: I will not compromise style, design, or quality for price and I only buy pieces that I would use at my own home.

My commitment to you is:
1- Amazing customer service
2- Provide more detailed pictures if requested
3- Fantastic prices
4- Great designs
5- Made with love!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Custom orders require 30% deposit. Client can mail me their fabric or I can find it for you. Custom orders take 7-10 days once I have the fabric in-hand.

Care instructions

Fabric is expected to be somewhat dirty. Please remember my pieces have been hand picked from France and Italy. They come in vessels which takes 4-6 weeks to arrive but before they depart, I move them to Netherlands. So with that said, the pieces are handled with care but sometimes you'll need to clean them with soap and water if velvet or with a wet cloth if leather.

When will i get my items delivered?

As soon as payment is received in full, we start looking for a third party driver. Shipping to the east-coast is fairly easy for us. You can expect to receive your items in 7-10 days after purchase. Shipping to the mid-west is more complicated about 2-4 weeks. Shipping west-coast about 2-3 weeks.

Can you paint the color of my frame?

Yes. We have a third party that changes frame colors for example from gold leaf to black or from silver to blue. They charge about $250-$500 per chair and $500-$1,000 for a sofa.

Do you sell other things like mirrors, chandeliers, benches, etc?

Yes. From time to time, we bring floor mirrors and chandelier and everything in between (benches, coffee tables, side tables, bed frames, vanity tables, commodes).
