Liven Up Your Living Room

With the long New England Winter in full force, I’ve been spending more and more time in my family’s living room. Easily the warmest in the house, we all cuddle around in it reading, watching a movie or coloring in our favorite new adult coloring books.

I’ve noticed recently though that while the couch and love-seat match, the rest of the furniture doesn’t. The end table is all that’s left of a living room set my parents got when my sister and I were children, the coffee table is a (very) small wooden chest and the TV console is a hand-me-down from my grandmother (so probably bought at a big-box store) that now has a couple corners nibbled out from our always hungry black lab.

Needless to say, our living room is in desperate need of an upgrade. If you’re living room is well loved like my family’s and has seen better days or if you’re looking to update to it, then why not think about the occasional tables? (Assuming your couch isn’t in need of replacing)

The most used and most visible table is the coffee table, and I’d start there. Sometimes you can get away with a unique coffee table that you found antiquing or re-purpose an old trunk but you want to be careful and make sure it blends with the theme of your room.

Knowing my mom has a penchant for Old New England style furniture, I would choose the Classic Shaker Flare Oval Coffee Table. The flared legs elevate the tables look and give it an air of sophistication, while the sleek lines and simple design will never go out of trend. The round design also gives off a feeling a openness and inclusion.

Once settled on a coffee table, I would move next to the end tables. To match the coffee table, I would choose our Classic Shaker Flare Leg Round End Table. I would get two, one for each side of the couch. What I like about this table in particular is its size. The table top is just big enough for a table lamp and maybe your remotes…it doesn’t allow for clutter to accumulate.

Lastly, I would get the Classic Shaker Flare Leg Sofa Table to complete the set. The great thing about sofa tables is their versatility. I wouldn’t use it in the traditional way you’d think to use a sofa table. I would use it as a side table to complement a large black and white picture of the Chrysler Tower hanging on one wall in our living room.

Just as a piece of jewelry or an accessory can make or break an outfit, your accent tables can do the same for your room. Right now my family’s living room is a hodge podge of pieces that don’t really work cohesively. We need to scrap the mismatched furniture and start over.

If you’re feeling the same way about your living room, then maybe it is time to get new accent tables. All of our occasional tables are available in Cherry, Maple, Oak or Walnut woods and are handmade by local craftspeople. Dress your room in the finest wood furniture Vermont has to offer.

Home-office-living-sale If you are now on your second “big box store” office desk and looking to replace this wobbly one once and for all you might want to consider a real wood desk (one that you can use and enjoy for many carefree years). Same goes for that TV entertainment center. Are the door hinges just barely hanging on? Or maybe your bookcase shelves are bowing under the weight of your book collection? And how would you like your new real wood desk or entertainment center to arrive fully assembled (our Vermont made furniture arrives assembled).  We probably all have purchased one of those big box store desks, bookcases or entertainment centers that come in a giant heavy box filled with dozens of screws, nuts and bolts. Which one goes where? And after a few frustrating hours of assembly you have some furniture that at best is functional. Well for the time being!

 

And of course nothing can match the beauty, styling and sturdiness of real wood. Beautiful and interesting wood grain can never be simulated and stains or dyes could never match the natural color of real wood. Sure real wood, crafted in America furniture costs more but when you consider you will never have to buy it again it suddenly becomes the real bargain!

 

So starting today our Vermont, American made real wood living room and home office furniture is on sale. From now through August 23rd you can save up to 15% plus receive free shipping! And you may also be happy to know that along with getting a great value and beautifying your home you are supporting a local US economy plus helping preserve our natural resources by buying lasting furniture made with domestic, sustainably harvested woods. Oh, one last note! If you visit our online furniture galley and do not see exactly what you want, most of our pieces can be modified in size and configuration. Or if you just want to chat more about real wood furniture just drop us a line!
