Get the Look!

by kristi

Today’s post is courtesy of our sister-site, CarolinaRustica.com! I found this beautiful room and now you can get the look for yourself! Combining traditional elements like the tufted chair, and rustic pieces like the coffee table is a growing trend. Animal prints have been in and out of design for a long time, but I think this one is perfectly placed to give the room a chic look. Adding the white slip-cover sofa and shiny drum table also incorporate soft and flashy looks respectively.

Two Is Better Than One: The Storage Mirror

by Sarah

A very good friend of mine is getting married next summer. So, as a dutiful companion and guest, I checked out her registry over the weekend to see what my options were for a gift. She had most of the usual items on it — new dishes, nice wine glasses, color-coordinated bathroom linens. But the item that really stood out to me was the jewelry-storage mirror. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one on a registry, and typically when I think of  mirrors with storage, they’re usually medicine cabinets.

I told her that I thought it was a really neat choice, and she just gushed about this mirror for a solid ten minutes. Apparently it’s one of her favorite items on her registry, so I went back to the site and bought it. If it makes her that happy, it’s worth the money. And who knows, maybe I’ll like it enough to buy one for myself!

Favorite Friday!

Everyone has there own idea of a perfect bedroom, whether it be a mixture of dark woods and colorful textures, or a lighter look with simple patterns. Regardless of your style, everyone enjoys waking up in a beautiful bedroom.

To create that ideal bedroom, it starts with the bed. We have hundreds of beds from Classic Traditional to Coastal to Contemporary. I’ve picked out a few of my favorites to share!

The Carrera Collection from Lexington Is Here

by Sarah

One of my favorite brands on FurnitureCrate is Lexington. They make such an interesting variety of high-quality, upscale furniture, and it’s all gorgeous. If I had an unlimited amount of funds for decorating my house, I would furnish the entire place with Lexington — that’s how much I love it. There’s so much care and detail put into each piece, and the rich finishes and sophisticated veneers add a sense of depth that you can’t find in most furniture.

Recently, we began selling one of Lexington’s newest collections: Carrera. This is a gorgeous line that really speaks to contemporary tastes. Even though it doesn’t have the same kind of woodworking detail as some of their other collections, the sleek, straight lines and the even tone of the Carbon Gray finish help each piece make a statement in your home. This is the modern furniture that we’ve all been waiting for.

The Sectional You Can’t Replace

by Sarah

Out of everyone I knew growing up, I am the only one who moved back to the Metro Detroit area after college. This means that instead of hanging out with my friends on the weekends, I often hang out with their parents instead. So last weekend, I went furniture shopping with Christine’s parents. They are pretty good about not taking anything seriously, so we spent most of the time in the store making fun of the ridiculous display of ugly vases. The real reason they were there was to look for a new sectional.

See, I think their current sectional is pretty great, and I told them so. They have a Corsario Leather Sectional, which has been in their living room for years, and I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve spent the night on that sectional. It’s super comfortable, and it’s still in really good shape. If I had room for it in my apartment, I probably would have done my best to actually help them find a new sectional so that I could take the Corsario for myself.

After much wheedling and convincing, I got them to see my side. While they wanted to change up the look of their living room, they had to admit that other than that, there was no real reason to get a different sectional. So even though none of my friends are nearby, at least my favorite sectional still is.

Put Your Mug Where Your Corner Table Is

by Sarah

My favorite part of the weekend is Saturday morning. I like to get up and make myself a giant pot of coffee, and then I curl up in my favorite armchair and read. My coffee mug is too hot, so I always keep it next to me on my favorite black corner table. The table is small enough to fit in my apartment, yet it still easily supports a lamp and a large coffee mug. I know that I could use a square or a round end table, but I like the look of the corner table best. Plus, I think it’s more versatile, since I can easily rearrange my furniture and put it in a corner, where I think it would look great as an accent piece. Plus, it has a drawer in the front. I like to store my coasters and spare bookmarks there so that they stay safe from my cat, who likes my armchair almost as much as I do. I think it’s perfect for any home, because you can use it however you want.

Replacing the Dinette Set

by Sarah

My dad has a little breakfast nook at his house where I often ate most of my meals growing up. It’s too small for a normal dining set though, so we’ve always had a dinette set instead. This specific dinette set was super old — my dad bought it used about seven years before I was born. So more than twenty years later, you can imagine that this thing was on its last leg (pun intended).

Well, about a month ago the table cracked right across the middle. My dad came home, dropped a package on it, and it just broke. So, since I work for a furniture company, he called me up to ask for help. He has a more country-style kitchen and nook, so we shopped around looking for that style. Okay, I was the one who cared more about style continuity, because my dad doesn’t really know much about style or type. He just knows what he likes and doesn’t like. However, we were able to agree that it should be a wood table, with lighter coloring and classic spindle-back chairs. I almost convinced him to get a counter-height set, but he overruled me.

After several days of searching, we finally found one that fit both his criteria and country-style standards. It was a little stressful, as all furniture shopping can be, but his new Market Square Boyne 5-Piece Drop Leaf Dining Set looks great in his breakfast nook. And now he once again has somewhere to eat (and put his mail), so everyone’s happy.

My Top 3 Color Combinations!

by kristi

Picking colors for your room usually starts off by finding a color, whether it’s the latest trend or a long time love, and pairing it with a beige, gray, or brown. BUT, what if instead of choosing that safe beige color, you pick another color?

Pairing two strong colors can liven up your room and give you more options with accessories and design.

Check out my favorite color combinations!
