WOW!! What an amazing experience it was to be involved in this years IFDA Take a Seat auction.
We are so excited to be able to reveal to you our beloved final chair design!! May we introduce “GEORGE!”
Our muse was non other than George Washington himself! We drew our inspiration from his military jacket. We wanted the chair to be fun and whimsical, but sophisticated and functional as well. Overall we were so delighted with the final outcome. To see what the chair looked like before, click HERE!
We are pleased to announce that “George” was procured at the auction and went to an amazing and very deserving family who purchased the chair for their son who is currently serving active duty! The chair will be a surprise for him when he returns home. We could not be more pleased.
In case you missed it…..the auction was for the Military Assistance Mission (MAM) located here in Phoenix, AZ. They are a wonderful group who provide support to family members and members of the military when they need assistance. All proceeds from this auction went to support this truly amazing organization! If you would like more information on this organization and how you can help, please click HERE!
Not only did CoCo Milano’s design and donate a chair for the auction, but we purchased two chairs as well! There were so many amazing chairs there that night. We had a hard time choosing and there was a lot of competition, but we finally won the auctions for these two amazing pieces.
The “Owl” chair has been purchased and will be enjoyed by two twin 8 year old girls, but the “Ram” chair is still available for purchase! If you are interested, please come by the store or contact CoCo Milano’s at 480-641-2626 for pricing and additional info!

We love Dyana Hesson. Her creativity, thoughtfulness and kindness make her more than just an artist to us, she is also a friend.
Dyana became interested in painting as a way to express things that she couldn’t through a lens alone. She chose oil as her medium because it possessed a fluid quality perfect for the subjects she was painting.
She began to experiment with thin layers of carefully blended paint, and the results were luminous.
We are so honored to carry some of her limited edition pieces in our store. Below is an example of just one of those limited edition pieces we carry.
**Come into the store to see the rest of the limited edition pieces we carry.**
Recently, Dyana released her amazing note cards of reproductions of her original oil paintings. They are quite popular with her fans; little pieces of collectible art. They are great for gifts and are also frame worthy!
Hurry and get your hands on your own set of these beautiful note cards, they are going quick and we only have limited stock!!
Shop Local, Buy Local!
