A bed, like a dining table or a living room sofa, is usually a long-term purchase. Which means you want to be sure exactly what you need before you buy.

 

We met up with Georgianna, our Store Manager in Cambridge, to discuss everything you should consider before making a decision.

To say this year hasn't gone as planned would be an understatement. There's been a lot of change, and, often with change, we see things in a new light. 

With all of us spending more time at home –it’s only natural that we’re seeing our home in a new light too. Is that sofa you bought 3 years ago really comfortable? Is hunching over your laptop on the kitchen the best long-term option?

We talked to our team of designers to get their point of view on how home design needs have shifted over the past few months along with some simple solutions.

Sometimes creativity requires thinking outside the box - making new connections, seeing things in a new light. Like, for example, pairing your coffee preferences with a coffee table (link), or your tea with an upholstered chair.

Or, your favorite show with a corresponding piece of furniture. Can you take a multiple series show and dilute it down to just one piece of furniture that encompasses its tone, style, and feel? We say, why not!?

So, here are some of the most popular shows in recent history, paired with their furniture counterparts.

Of all the rooms in your home, the bedroom is one that should be a sanctuary – a place to escape to, rest, read, and sleep.

And, rest and rejuvenation don’t come easy when your room is disorganized or cluttered. Even if you’re not a clean freak, most of us feel more at ease in an organized space.

Here’s the best thing about taking the time to organize and streamline your bedroom: it means you’ll be cleaning less! When you have a system that works for you, your bedroom will always (or, most of the time) be your dream space – de-cluttered and peaceful.

Unless you’re renovating or moving into a new home, changing the design and feel of your home usually happens in small steps. Sometimes it happens because one day you look up and decide you hate the paint color in your living room. Or, you realize the rug you inherited from your grandmother is starting to look very outdated.

The great thing is – you don’t need to make twenty decisions all at once to change the look of your home. Creating a modern home doesn’t need to be a huge overhaul. And it also doesn’t need to include getting rid of your favorite pieces.

We put together a list of 5 simple swaps, additions, and changes to instantly create a modern look in your home.

A bookcase is a necessary addition to a home – whether you’re book-obsessed with a full library or you need a space to store your cookbooks and board games.

Buying a standard bookcase – while great in some situations – won’t always suit your needs. A custom bookcase is a perfect option when you don’t want to invest in built-in cabinets, but you need shelving that’s tailored to your home.

We met up with Renee, our Store Manager in Acton, to learn everything you should know before buying a custom bookcase.

The internet is an amazing resource when it comes to home décor and interior design. Don’t get us wrong, we love Pinterest and Instagram but (and we may be a bit biased here), we are partial to blogs for their ability to showcase in-depth information. Who doesn’t like learning something new?  

Not only do we love blogs, but we love our fellow New England bloggers talking about all things design. There are so many to choose from, but here are a few of our favorites.

Check them out and get inspired!
