Simply Shaker Doesn’t Mean Shaker Furniture is Always the Same

If you frequent our blog, you’re probably an expert in Shaker Style Furniture. One thing I’ve noticed about Shaker Furniture is how easily stereotyped it is.

Because A Modern Home Brings Everyone Together

So long are the days of dens and home offices, at least in the traditional sense. With homes being built and renovated with an open layout, families are coming together in different ways. While everyone is constantly on the go, on their phones or laptops, open layouts help bring everyone together.

Happy Valentine’s Day! We hope you have someone who looks as longing at you as my dog son, Charlie, looks at this cake pop (don’t worry, I treated him to a few baby carrots for being such a good model).

Say Goodbye to 2016 and Out-of-Date Furniture With These Modern Dining Tables

What a year it has been.

If you’re like me, you’re probably reflecting on 2016 and planning on how to make 2017 better. I remember making a goal to declutter my house last year. While the clutter still lingers, I did update a lot of new furniture. I replaced my worn couch, cheap TV console and clunky dinette set.
