A common question the Circle Furniture sales team hears from customers is, Should I get a sofa and chairs or a sectional? Or, says Valerie Folan, a design and sales professional from our Middleton location, “people come in absolutely set on one option, but once we talk through their needs and the space they have, they change their minds.” The takeaway is that it’s important to think through this decision so you walk away with the furniture that will work best in your home.

Claiming that mid-century modern design is popular right now isn’t breaking news. It’s been trending for a while, and it’s not hard to see why. With simple, clean lines and a focus on function and comfort, mid-century modern pieces are a welcome addition to most homes.

The term mid-century modern was coined in the 1950s and remained popular until the 1960s, defining not just furniture but the architecture and graphic design as well.

We turned to Catherine Willey, our Store Manager in Framingham, to hear her take on all things mid-century modern and answer all of your questions; where does it come from, what are its key elements, and is it right for you?

Color is exciting. It’s energetic, enigmatic, and also extremely personal. One person’s favorite color is another person’s nightmare. And while some of us prefer neutral, earthy tones with minimal pops of color, others choose to go bold.

However, what does going bold with color mean? We think it sounds scarier than it is. Catherine Willey, our Store Manager in Framingham, walks us through all the different ways to incorporate bolder color in your home, whether you’re color shy or not.

There are a lot of décor options out there that appear stylish on the outside, but then the question arises of how to determine quality in furniture. Is a piece that looks good today going to look good and function well in two, five, ten years?

A lot of thought and planning goes into getting your home just so. You want furniture that will remain beautiful in the long term.

To help guide us in what to look for when seeking high-quality furniture, we spoke with Circle Furniture’s Framingham store manager, Catherine Willey.
