Where Does a Mermaid Sit?


How Mermaids Can Get Comfortable…

Hip regularly strives to provide Portland with mid-century modern furnishings fit for the artistic and creative personalities that make up our favorite city. We love taking in the local creative events and showcases that highlight these personalities, and we often leave imagining what furniture in our showroom reflects these styles.

One event that bursts with Portland personality is the annual mermaid parade that’s taking place on July 27. This parade of water sprites dress in all kinds of mermaid and water myth-related imagery to celebrate Portland’s port and river history. Looking through some of the elaborate costumes and art involved in this tradition got us thinking ― what could we offer a tired mermaid to relax after a long parade?

Our first thought jumped to Finn from DellaRobbia.


This elegant, flowing chair looks as if it came straight off of a coral reef. Built for perfect support and rest, its welcoming appearance is perfect for lounging, and its vibrant color makes it a beautiful addition to any mid-century modern room. Pairing furniture with a special theme is always exciting for us, and we couldn’t imagine a better piece of furniture to exemplify the vivid style of our favorite aquatic-themed parade.

We’d love to help you pair furniture with your own personal, creative style. Visit our showroom today and find the furniture set that expresses your own, unique Portland character.
