We’ve put together a back to school idea board for the home, which includes suggestions for keeping kids and the entire family focused and productive when they have homework, special classroom projects or need a space to take a breath and relax.

Weekly Spotlight: New Web Exclusive Lighting

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

LED Steeple LanternOur entire lighting collection is on sale until September, but there’s more to see outside the pages of our catalog. Web exclusive lighting is also on sale, and to give you a look into what we offer on our website, we are spotlighting five new lamps that will look perfect inside of your home.

Rustic Swing Arm Table Lamp

Old world charm and decorative appeal are exemplified beautifully in the LED Steeple Lantern, a metal accent lamp with a rustic design and twinkling LED lights inside a glass chimney. This lantern makes a beautiful addition to your farmhouse kitchen or an accent table in the entryway.

For practicality, our Rustic Swing Arm Table Lamp is the perfect size and offers just the right amount of lighting for reading on the sofa or while you work at your desk. Its distressed finish
offers primitive appeal and gives any
space a lived-in look.

Mission Chairside Lamp End TableAlso a practical option and one that saves space is the Mission Chairside Lamp End Table. With an end table and lamp in one, you have the lighting you need next to your furniture and a stylish Mission designed end table on which to place books, electronics and collectibles.

Faye Table LampElda Oval Table Lamp

The final two web exclusive lamps for this spotlight are truly works of art. The first, a romantic design completed with a silken champagne-colored drum shade for a timeless yet stylish look in any room. Designed by Carolyn Kinder, our Faye Table Lamp is a classic decorative and functional home accent. The second is lighting like you have never seen it before; the Elda Oval Table Lamp’s mottled glass shade suspends in the air, supported by a rubbed oval frame. A stunning statement piece designed by Matthew Williams, this decorative accent lamp is not one you or any guests will forget.

Decorating in Farmhouse Style

Thursday, July 21st, 2016

Farmhouse style is all about rustic decor, primitive accents and going back to our roots. Like a photo from the past, this room exemplifies all that is charming about the perfect farmhouse; take a look below as we break down each element.

Rush Seat Chair in English PineWood Furniture

The drop leaf wood table beautifully takes center stage in this room, and is surrounded by simple slat-back chairs that have distressed surfaces and a well-loved appeal. They feature a similar finish, but could vary in design for a mismatched look brought together by the rustic, minimal aesthetic.

Large Armoire or Hutch

Also wood, this hutch could be used for storing linens, table settings and so much more, and its large stature fills the room with primitive appeal. This is a practical furniture piece because you can display items on top and have decorative storage space for many of your things in a dining room, bedroom, kitchen or hallway.

Period LightingBlack Onion Lantern

Did you notice the onion lantern and candlesticks near the hutch in the back of the room? These are perfect for creating the farmhouse look, in addition to bringing extra light to a room.

Entwined Florets Rug

Rustic Wall Art

Folk art designs and country landscapes complement the rustic contents of the room, especially if the wall art itself is crafted out of wood, features a warm patina or is a historical reproduction.

Other Accents

The wing-back chair was historically used to protect the sitter from drafts and to keep the heat from a fireplace around the seating area. They may serve the same purpose in some homes today, but this elegantly designed chair also adds notes of formality and decoration to any space. In the room above, a large pattern covers the upholstery, which enhances the beauty of the wooden legs and traditional appeal of the other furniture. Large area rugs also adorn the room in pattern and folk art color, protecting the beautiful hardwood floors and adding an extra element of comfort underfoot.
