We decided to take a retrospective look into 2019 with our Sales Director, Gary. What were our best selling products and why? What trends are we seeing for the year to come?

To start, when asked to describe the year as a whole, Gary says, “The family room is still the part of the home that our customers are most concerned about when they’re thinking about decorating. It’s the nucleus of the home and the area where the whole family hangs out.”

Although the appearance of a sofa is important, there’s a lot more to consider when it comes to choosing one for your home. As with any major furniture investment, we think it’s a good idea to take time to weigh your options.

And one of the decisions you’ll have to make is whether you want a tight back sofa or a loose back sofa. We’re taking it back to basics and running through what a tight back sofa is versus a loose back, what are their pros and cons, and how to make the best decision for your lifestyle.

We spoke to Cindy, our Store Manager in Middleton to get her perspective on the latest color trends that she’s loving for spring—from soft blush tones to lively green.

When it comes to choosing dining chairs for your home, there are a lot of factors to consider. Style, price, color, and comfort, to name a few. Not all dining chairs are made equal, and the last thing you want is to spend a few weeks with your new dining chairs and realize they’re not as comfortable as you hoped.

We’re here to point out the key qualities that you should look for when choosing a dining chair. We talked to Catherine Willey, our Store Manager in Framingham  to learn everything there is to know about comfortable dining chairs as well as her top picks from our collection.

We’re back again with an unlikely pairing to warm you up, get you cozy, and maybe even inspire a décor change in your home. And if not a décor change, then a change in your beverage preferences.

We met up with our resident tea and coffee expert, Eric Bailey, to discuss his favorite teas and the chairs he’d pair them with. We can’t claim this an exact science but we can claim that it’s informative and, most importantly, fun.
