Quick Tip: Timeless Wood Storage Benches

A solid wood storage bench, like our Cubby Storage Bench, the Boot & Storage Bench, our Country Shaker Storage Benches and many more, easily adapts to changing trends and style preferences, all the while maintaining its function as a storage solution and/or seating solution for your home. Use totes and baskets for underneath storage, and add extra comforts like decorative accent pillows and bench cushions seasonally or yearly.

New Quilt & Seating Must-Haves

Monday, December 26th, 2016

Frosty Chenille BeddingChristmas may be over, but we are looking forward to starting a new year. Speaking of which, have you checked out our new catalog, the first of 2017? Sign up to get it in the mail or view it online; in the meantime, here’s a peek at our new seating and quilt selections, which, by the way, are all on sale.

New Bedding

Featuring a Colonial Williamsburg® pattern, the Blue Dusk Toile Quilt Collection is rich in tradition, style and timeless appeal. Soft blue adds a calming effect to any bedroom, and is complementary to your primitive collectibles and rustic home furnishings. Offering an even more luxurious look is our Frosty Chenille Bedding. The vintage chenille pattern pops against bright blue cotton and presents an exquisite texture on your bed.

Although not a bedding collection or quilt collection, the new made in the USA Ambrosia Bird Throw features a cheerfully pink large toile pattern that will decorate any bed, rustic bench or country chair. Drape over the back of an upholstered recliner or living room sofa for an extra stylish touch, or use as a light layer while you sit in front of the fireplace.

Weekly Spotlight: National Library Week

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

This week marks the 58th National Library Week, a time to show additional support for libraries and the many resources available through libraries.

In celebration, this week we are offering a few tips on creating a library space within your home; whether you have a bare corner you don’t know what to do with or an empty room you would like to transform into a space dedicate to knowledge, reading and relaxation.

Library Furnishings

A Comfortable Chair

To ensure you won’t fall asleep or strain your back by slouching as you read a captivating novel, we recommend a high back rocking chair with a plush seat so you can comfortably sit back for extended periods of reading time. Our Madison Rocker features a wide seat that doesn’t constrain and a high slatted back that supports. The Mission design is a classic look, especially in a richly decorated library. For extra seating, display space or to reach high shelves, our Library Chair (available in two rustic finishes) is a fully functional seating option that fits right in with your books and study materials.

A Bookcase

Of course, you need furniture that both displays and stores your books and library inspired treasures. Depending on your space, our Shaker Low Bookcase can offer shelving and even tabletop space next to your country chair. Our Shaker Tall Bookcases can fit in smaller libraries with just as much decorative and displaying potential.

Convenient Lighting

While overhead lighting is important, in a library you want to set a comfortable mood with an accent lamp or table lamp. Our texturally appealing Celina Accent Lamp brightens up the reading nook in your library not just through its warm light but with the alluring color of the lamp itself; perfect for any season.

Primitive Iron Hare & Magnifying Glass SculpturePrimitive Accents

For complementing your oldest tomes and charming new ones, ideal primitive home accents are worldly and decorative; appealing and functional. Our Hourglass Timer is not just a functioning timepiece but offers a sleek look on any bookshelf, desk or end table. Another statuesque treasure is our Iron Hare & Magnifying Glass Sculpture; get closer to fine print and hold loose papers steady on any tabletop surface. The rabbit will keep you company while you explore worlds within the pages of your favorite books. We suppose it also wouldn’t be a true library without at least one set of bookends for adding a little flair on the shelves of your bookcases.
