A brand-new furniture store in the heart of the Village of Carlsbad, Skylar’s Home and Patio offers shoppers high-quality, locally made goods in a friendly atmosphere — and at low prices that bigger outlets simply cannot match.
North County native Skylar Ireton has struck out on his own after 11 years in the furniture business. His experience and connections within the industry allow him to provide the best products at the best possible prices.
“I know the product I sell and I know the differences in quality,” Skylar said. “And I’m able to keep my prices low because I have built relationships with local vendors and local companies who have been in the furniture business for many years.”
Skylar’s Carlsbad showroom is smaller than some furniture mega-stores, but offers thousands of products from almost 40 different vendors. And he offers a shopping experience and a passion to please that shoppers won’t find at big retail chain stores.
“I didn’t want my store to by the type where sales people swarm on you like hawks, forcing decisions upon you,” he says. “A lot of stores only focus on getting the sale and don’t care if they are selling an inferior product. I want you to be happy with your product so you tell your friends and come back to furnish your entire home, inside and out.”
Having been born and raised in San Diego’s North County and with the years he has spent in the business, Skylar knows the wide range of styles San Diego furniture shoppers need, whether it be a sofa, custom sectional, stylish outdoor resin wicker patio furniture, or clean-line bedroom set.
Walk into Skylar’s Home and Patio and you are greeted by a mid-century modern sectional that comes in any configuration to fit your room, and in hundreds of fabric options. To the left is a Restoration Hardware-style table and slip-cover chairs for 50 percent off the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. To the right is a very clean resin wicker dining set and modular outdoor sectional, as well as a custom fire pit.
Further back in the store are Pottery Barn-style bedroom sets and a zen-style platform bed for customers seeking a clean, modern look.
They’re all available at prices up to 40 percent lower than those found at other outlets.
“I’m able to keep my prices low because I have built relationships with local vendors and local companies who have been in the furniture business for many years,” Skylar said.
Skylar picks up a Crate and Barrel catalogue and points out a sofa selling for $1,599.
“I sell the sectional for $1,499,” he says, “and mine is locally made, with better quality and more options.”
He points out a rolling coffee table and says, “They have the same one at other stores for double my price.”
These unmatched values are all housed in Skylar’s attractive, comfortable showroom on State Street in the heart of the Village of Carlsbad. The Carlsbad resident said “there is no better place to work.”
“Seeing my name on the window for the first time was almost like a dream,” he said. “I’ve been hanging out and shopping in Carlsbad Village for years, and it’s just such a great thing to be a part of. I intend to be here for a long time, and I intend to do it by giving my customers exactly what they want — the best stuff, the best selection, at the best prices.”
