March Madness is here!

March Madness is here!

March Madness is here! As you watch your favorite team, are you happy with the area around your TV? Is it time to upgrade to a beautiful Entertainment Center?

Watching TV is typically the main function of a living room, and so your TV is the focal point. Everything, including furniture, is centered on the TV, which can be an eye sore or even throw off the whole style of a room. Enter — Entertainment Centers! If you have the space, framing the TV can help blend the room together or even hide your TV when it’s not being used. Plus, you can never get enough storage space!

Check out the variety of styles and colors we offer on FurnitureCrate!

Picking out Hardwood Floors!

Picking out Hardwood Floors!

It can be overwhelming when redesigning your home. There are so many options and little details that go into picking out everything, for example, picking out hardwood floors!

Between the type of wood, the wood pattern, the stain color, and the finish, there are hundreds of options! Depending on the wood you pick, the stain will look different, and the finish could look different depending those decisions. And whichever pattern you choose, along with the color and stain, it could look traditional or modern. So, like I said, it can all get a bit overwhelming.

So I went searching for some helpful guides with today’s most common options, lets see if I can make the process a little easier!

Wood Type: while Oak is very common, these are some other woods that are also very popular. As you can see, each wood has different grain patterns, and some are more contrasting than others. Right now, I’m only looking at the aesthetics, but there are many characteristics of each wood to consider when picking out one for your home (a topic for a future post, perhaps!?!)

Wood Stains: Here are some examples of common wood stains on 2 different woods. The first is on Oak , the second on Hickory. The results are beautiful, and so different, with each combination!

Floor Patterns: most people use the traditional plank style, easy decision right? Not exactly! The width you choose can affect the overall style of the room. Here are your most common options.

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.

Suburban Oasis Home Design

Suburban Oasis Home Design

I stumbled upon this amazing suburban home design by Kristina Wolf Design, based in California. The entire home has a natural flow throughout the space. What we love is how it mixes the popular industrial design with modern features in a typical suburban home. Some of the furniture pieces are also familiar to what we have on our own site as we note below..

The kitchen has an open feel, with a casual round dining set and is open to the family room.


The formal dining room shares the same style and color palette as the rest of the home.

One of our favorite rooms is the master bedroom. That bed looks very familiar, it is the Modloft Ludlow Bed in White Leather and Wenge Finish that we also carry on our site. Just love how she designed the room with a contemporary bed, yet feels very comfortable and warm.

And last but not least, the master bath is just as stunning as the rest of the home.

I think that this home will definitely share as inspiration when I decorate my own home…

Modern Lux Redux

Modern Lux Redux

While browsing the infamous Pinterest, I stumbled upon this room scene. It’s very sophisticated, and has a modern luxe feel to it. It’s easy to recreate that look in your home with the furniture we carry. And don’t worry, the items don’t have to exactly match.

Shop: sofa, bench, green pillows, lime ikat pillows, striped pillow, orange pillows, chair, stool, chandelier, table lamp, coffee table, rug

Want to recreate it in your home? We’ve found items that can help you achieve this very same look!


The Bernhardt Vintage Patina Bookcase has always been a favorite of ours. The Uttermost Paris Photo Set set the tone of the room as elegant and masculine because of the architecture. Paired with exquisite Bradington Young club chairs and Klaussner coffee table and cooridinating end table. The find of the century? The Tommy Bahama Tasmania End Table has that intricate detail as shown in the inspiration room. Grounding the room is a natural sisal rug from Surya. And topped off with off with a handsome wall sconce. Hope you enjoy!

Got Cabin Fever? Cozy up to a Neutral Tropical Bedroom

Got Cabin Fever? Cozy up to a Neutral Tropical Bedroom

This cold winter and all this snow has got me getting a bad case of cabin fever. Wishing I were somewhere hot and tropical! So I had to create a tropics inspired space to escape to! Mix and match furniture finishes create a curated look that has been acquired over several years. My choice is a dark rich sleigh bed by Magnussen and a Hooker distressed accent chest that can also be used as a nightstand. A jute rug is a staple in home decor in tropical locations. And add fun pops of color to create interest with a cozy club chair in mango and coordinating decorative pillows in orange and green foliage. Finish it off with a classic paint color, Benjamin Moore Oakwood Manor. Can’t you just hear the sounds of the ocean?
