Seating included

Patina, which has carved out a market niche as a purveyor of gifts, jewelry and small home decor items, is also becoming a place to find furniture. While its five stores have all carried a handful of pieces, Patina said it will expand offerings at each location with the addition of a line by G&J Style. Buyer Molly Pool described the newest line -- of easy chairs, ottomans, loveseats, sofas, coffee tables and some office furniture -- as "modern natural," bridging diverse decors from cabins to modern studio settings. The pieces are upholstered in leather and/or hide; several have nailed trim. Prices are about $595 for an ottoman, $950 to $1,595 for easy chairs, and $2,295 to $2,895 for sofas. Pool said each store won't carry the complete line, but will display a variety based on available space. See a locater at for store locations.
