Modern American Platform Bed and Case Goods in Cherry with Walnut accents

Now your dreams can be a reality–Save up to 20% off handmade bedroom furniture during our Winter Bedroom Sale!

I’m deciding that 2016 is the year of YOU! You work hard, you take care of your loved ones and you go out of your way to be kind and helpful. I think those are great qualities, but I fear most people (myself included) forget to give themselves “me” time.

We all have a hobby or interest but I would guess the vast majority of people don’t give themselves much time to grow those interests. It’s easy to get caught in the trap of work first, play later, but a lot people are forgetting to take a break from the grind and enjoy themselves.

I want you to take a moment, think about something you really want to accomplish and create a feasible plan on how you’ll achieve that “me time” goal whether it be finishing that stack of books you’ve collected over the last two years or kayaking somewhere new every weekend.

To help you on your road to success, here’s a list of methods I have used.

  1. Get a good night’s sleep, every night!
  2. Turn off cell phones, laptops and tablets at least an hour before bed
  3. Get support from family and friends and challenge them to get more “me” time
  4. Spend time outside everyday, even if it’s only for a few minutes (and no I don’t mean walking from your house to your car!)

The less time you spend with technology and the more time you spend outside or doing your favorite activities, you’ll quickly see how much you don’t miss Netflix, Facebook or your e-mails!

In addition to turning away from your electronics and other distractions before bed, a great way to get a good night’s rest is to sleep in a bedroom you absolutely love.

Make your room part of your success and turn it into an oasis and hub of relaxation. To help get you motivated, we’re having a Bedroom Furniture Sale starting today, February 19 and going through Thursday, March 3. You can save 10% off one piece of bedroom furniture, 15% off two pieces and 20% off three or more pieces.

presidents' day furniture sale

Do you ever notice that in-between the winter holiday season and Spring, we’re stuck with filing taxes, flu season, shoveling our cars out of snow and an innate desire to hunker down indoors? Other than the anticipation of coming out of hibernation there seems to be little to get excited about, right?

I recently wrote about how during all of this time I’ve been spending indoors, I’ve noticed how my family’s living room furniture is in major need of replacing. Have you been feeling that way too this Winter?

Rectangular Turned Leg Dining Table in Cherry

Round, Rectangle, Oval or Square? We have some tips on choosing the table that’s right for you.

A dining table may just be the most important piece of furniture in your home. It sees family meals, celebrations, game nights and homework sessions. It’s where you laugh, bond and share memories. It will probably be the one piece of furniture that doesn’t change when it’s time to renovate.

Knowing that it’s a lasting investment and place that will function in multiple ways, it’s important to understand the different shapes of tabletops you can get, what each shape accomplishes and which one is right for you.

Rectangular- Easily the most popular and frequently chosen design, a rectangular table often symmetrically compliments the shape of a room. It gives a sense of structure and tradition. Long rectangular tables can help break up a large space while still remaining functional. And, knowing that rectangular tables are quite common, (not that it’s a bad thing!) the chairs and decor you choose to place around it are even more important.

Round- Often seen in dinette sets, round dining tables are a nice alternative to a rectangular table. Round tables send a message of openness and inclusion. They can easily accommodate extra guests and as long as the chair size is taken into consideration, they are just as spacious as a rectangular table.

Oval- A combination of both round and rectangular tables, an oval table can be both casual and sophisticated. Having rounded corners an oval table gives a sense of inclusion, similar to a round table, but its sleek, straight side edges lend itself to fine dining.

Square- A less common shape for a dining table, it can be either a small two person table or large enough to fit a holiday feast. A small square dining table is perfect for limited space or as a breakfast nook. A large square table, while less common, can be used to take up a large space. A square table can make reaching for food complicated at times and with everyone so spread out, can make it hard to hear everyone. But, we like square tables for their symmetry and modern twist on dining spaces.

Some other important factors to think about are:

-How often will you be using your dining table? Every meal? Only special occasions?

  • If it’s going to see a lot of wear and tear, it’s good to look for high quality and durable tables, whereas if it’s going to used seldomly, like formal events, a more ornate design may be appropriate.

-How many people will be sitting at it regularly? What about for special occasions?

  • This is where the size of your room, the table and the design of your dining chairs come into play. If you’re regularly hosting large gatherings a rectangle or oval shaped table may be more appropriate. If you’re room’s dimensions are more square in shape, a round table may fit in nicely.

-What about extension tops and drop-leaf tops?

  • Short on space? This type of top may be the best fit for you. It will allow you to save space on a regular basis, but will also allow you to host larger parties when you want.

No matter the theme of your dining space, we recommend considering functionality first. Look into what shapes and sizes will fit best in your dining space. Then move to size once you’ve determined how often and how many people will typically be hosted. After landing on the right table, we recommend moving to chairs. You don’t want choose a chair that ends up being too bulky around your table!

Why let the table and chairs have all the attention? We think what you put around them is just as important!

You’ve just invested a lot of time and money into your new dining table and chairs. The furniture has arrived and is set up in your dining room. Now what? You have the main attraction, so what you choose to decorate the rest of the room with should be selected with care. You wouldn’t buy a nice suit or dress and pair it with low-quality accessories, would you?

I chose four pieces that should be next on your list.


  1. Dining Bench- It’s nice alternative seating and can be multi-functional if you decide down the road you’d like more chairs. What I like the most about benches is that they give the illusion of fitting more people. And I love the idea of having a lot of people around the table enjoying a meal together.
  2. Sideboard or Hunt Board- More than just a storage space, these pieces can complement or accent your dining table and chairs. A sideboard, traditionally has more cabinet space and a hunt board you’ll notice is more table like with longer legs and usually offers less storage space. They’re great for hiding less commonly used china, silverware and other glassware. And, they act as extra surface space for large meals and decorations.
  3. Mirror- I’m not sure where this idea came from, but I love when dining rooms have a large mirror in them. It gives the illusion of more space, it can take up a lot of wall space if needed to complement the size of your furniture and can be used for practical purposes as well.
  4. Statement Chandelier- There’s nothing I like less than a missed opportunity and I think lighting (which is important for the ambiance of a room) is often one of them. A chandelier is like the icing on the cake. It completes the room. You can have one that’s simple or ornate in design but most importantly it should match the style/theme of your room. You don’t want to go overboard and end up with an eye sore.

If you’re unsure of where to start, I’d choose a piece that you know you need. Do you need more storage and surface space, is your dining room small, does it need better lighting, etc. and go from there.

Let us know what you’d get next for your dining space in the comments section below! And remember, now through February 11th you can save up to 20% off your dining furniture purchase during our Winter Dining Furniture Sale.
