Eco-conscious craftsmanship

Highlighting one of our environmentally friendly US Manufacturers

Regatta Sofa

Our new Regatta sofa from Cisco, sustainable furniture by an eco-conscious manufacturer. See store for details.

Made in the USA
All our upholstery is made in the USA. This is a huge source of pride—not only because it keeps jobs close to home—but because it helps uphold a tradition of employing skilled craftsmen (and women!) who can design beautifully detailed, high quality furniture.

And being American made, these pieces can be delivered fast, even if you customize your fabric (see more on that below). We can usually deliver customized furniture to you in as little as six weeks; there’s no need to wait months to ship across the sea.

Enter Cisco
Cisco is one of our newest American-based upholstery partners. Based in South Central Los Angeles, Cisco exclusively produces environmentally friendly products and always makes sure to give back to the local community. Even more, their finely crafted furniture is beautiful and comfortable, with sink-in down seating and natural fabrics. All of the colorful, bohemian-style fabrics are uniquely made and exclusive to Cisco’s collection.

All this is why we’re proud to host a meet and greet with Cisco’s founder, Cisco Pinedo, at our Burlington store on April 4th. RSVP here to get 15% off any one item in the store that day while enjoying snacks and refreshments (and more!).

For instance you can infuse rich, saturated colors to reflect a bohemian influence, or you can play around with patterns for a look that is truly yours. And all delivered quickly!

A touch of the sea

There are myriad ways to add a nautical or seaside influence to your home decor. From colors to textures to materials found right down at the seashore, read on for a holistic approach to seaside charm.

Brooke Stripe Sofa

A striped sofa, like the Brooke, can pair with nautical accessories, textured rugs, and occasional tables with a coastal feel.

1. You don’t have to “theme” it

By incorporating nautical elements into your space, you don’t have to support just one rigid “theme.” Think: a starfish-only themed room, or a room full of anchors, anchors, and more anchors! Instead you can simply have a mix of elements. Varied statement pieces can go a long way.

2. Go natural with eco-friendly materials

To add authenticity to your nautical-inspired space, choose products made of sustainable materials, textures, or elements from the sea that will allow you to feel the influence. For instance reclaimed wood, like driftwood, will lend your space a more natural, rustic feel. Woven textures like seagrass are also perfect.

3. Use sea-inspired tones

Traditional colors like red, white, and blue will always make you think of holiday cookouts or evoke a nautical vibe. But you can also seek more dedicated sea tones, like smoky grays, seafoam greens, and cerulean blues. Stripes are also classic. The end result: an oceanic oasis!

4. Include natural textures

Texture is the last important element to weave into the room. Consider natural rugs made of sisel, or rope that gives an overall natural feel without being too overt. Even wood textures with distressing feel ocean-worn.

Add texture to nautical decor with multifaceted items like a rope ball, rope wall mirror, or sisal rug.

However you decide to add nautical or seaside elements to your decor, have fun with it! If you need a place to start, check out our newest nautical and sea-inspired accessories.

Cold, gray days: Meet “Greenery”

It’s official! The Pantone Color Institute has declared “Greenery” as their color of the year for 2017.

pantone-150

Pantone Color Institute’s spokesperson told Forbes, “There’s a growing desire to reconnect with nature and what is real, and find ways to disconnect from technology. We need a break. We need to stop and breathe.”

Bringing forth a refreshing take, Greenery is a tangy yellow-green that speaks to our need to explore, experiment and reinvent. Illustrative of flourishing foliage, the fertile attributes of Greenery signals one to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.”

The Conrad chair in peacock (left) is the ultimate blast of green, while the Jacob chair (right) more subtly gets adorned by throws, floral tabletop accents, and wall hangings, like the Cape Cod Wood Charts.

If you’re ready to refresh your home, and if you’re ready to “explore” and “reinvigorate” your space, why not start with Greenery?

Bringing the outside, in

It’s a bright color that can bring some life to a room, even when used in small doses. In and of itself, the color green brings to mind nature and the outdoors, so bring them inside by adding a colorful throw or pillow to your room, or perhaps by hanging a new piece of artwork.

Accessories can infuse differing tones of green, like the Braided kidney pillow, the Cammy throw, or the Monday Print

Heart Chakra

During this time of celebrating the new year, green is also symbolic of prosperity, freshness, and progress. It is the color of the heart chakra, linked to a healthy heart & lungs—a beautiful breath of freshness.

The The Henderson bed is topped with varying green patterns and textures, in bedding and throws.

So, bring greenery in and sit back and enjoy the brightness of your room—especially during the cold, gray days of winter.

Be a Better Entertainer in 2017

5 Hosting Resolutions for the New Year

What better way to kick off the new year than to learn how to become the ultimate host with the most?

For whatever is on the horizon this year: birthdays, anniversaries, or family visits, you’ll want your home to be an inviting (and dare we say it—enviable!) oasis for your guests, whether you’re hosting a one-night fiesta or a family weekend.

1. Refresh.

Maybe you don’t need a whole dining or living room set. But small changes can go a long way in refreshing your space. Think table runners, candle holders, votives, florals, a new clock or wall hanging. Your sister-in-law from out of state will think you made over the whole room.

2. Recharge.

With tech products being so ubiquitous—from cell phones to iPads to Alexa—you’ll want to make it easy for your guests to charge up. Consider gadget-friendly pieces with built-in power outlets, wire access, and added media storage.

3. Rest.

Bar and counter stools are an easy, casual way for a foot-weary guest to slip into a seat, while still chatting and digging into the hors d’oeuvres. You always want to keep the party going!

What’s your style? Woven, swivel, saddle seat, upholstered? With a back, or without?

4. Red Wine anyone?

Wine-on-the-go is always a party hit; bar carts can offer mobility from room to room.

In addition, servers, hutches, and cabinets offer ample wine and bottle storage, with style. These multifunctional pieces showcase a variety of unique looks, from vintage to modern to rustic.

Creating bedroom bliss

Your bedroom should make you say, “Ahhhhh” as soon as you walk in and, “Zzzzzzz” not long after! Small changes to decor can make a big difference in how you sleep.

Here are just a few:

Make sure you love your furniture

What’s more your style? Coastal or rustic? Choose something with bead board details or natural wood elements.

For a luxe look, select furniture with rich textures and deep colors.  Consider an upholstered bed for an upscale, sophisticated look.

Step into something comfortable

From a luxurious rug to a plush comforter & throw, opt for materials that are soft to the touch.

Add color & fun with accessories

Throw on a pile of colorful pillows for added comfort & fun, or add a beautiful piece of artwork above your bed for a pop of your favorite color. Or maybe it’s a reminder of a special trip or vacation, like your honeymoon.

Lighten it up

A bedroom that’s too dark may feel romantic at times, but it won’t be functional for dressing, and it won’t have a positive effect on your mood.

If you have a reading nook, or if you often read in bed, it’s nice have a lamp that could swivel to provide direct light without creating shadows.

Vary your lighting sources (nightstands, floor lamps, ceiling lights) and add dimmers or 3-way bulbs whenever possible.

A good mattress is key

When is the last time you bought a new mattress? If it was 10 years ago or more, it’s time for a new one!

Need convenience? Check out our compact Mattress in a Box that ships for free right to your door! It’s the perfect solution when transporting mattresses up tight stairwells.

Use a touch of tech for a sound sleep

Believe it or not, there are digital considerations these days when buying a new bed—beyond the typical hunt for memory foam and a beautiful headboard. Now, you can get a SmartMotion base that’s not only adjustable, but it connects to an app that will track your sleep habits and provide tips for an improved sleep.

Your bedroom should be a place where you sleep soundly every night and wake up happy every morning. Hopefully these tips will help you create the bedroom of your dreams.
