The Best Dining Room Furniture Set For Your Holiday Gathering



The Best Dining Room Furniture Set for Your Holiday Gathering

We don’t often think about the furniture in our dining room until it’s absolutely necessary to do so. The furniture is typically comfortable enough for us to enjoy a quick breakfast, or a dinner with the family. But, when it comes to hosting guests, it’s easy to second guess yourself, and your furniture. Thankfully, there are a few tips you can keep in mind. Whether you’re in the market for a new dining set, or you want to spruce up your own, take into account both timeless classics, and recent trends. 

Traditions Never Fade

The holidays are all about family, warmth, and comfort. One way to provide that with dining room furniture is by focusing on something more traditional, vintage, rustic, etc. If you have an old dining set already, you might actually benefit from ‘roughing it up’ a bit more. The distressed look is not only in style right now, but it never goes out of style. Capitalize on a comforting dining set you already have by giving it a more rustic look. There are plenty of online tutorials and step-by-step guides that can help you give your furniture a welcoming farmhouse appeal. 


Modern Comfort

People also tend to think about class and sophistication at the holidays. If you’re in the market for new dining room furniture, don’t be afraid to make a bold statement. Rich, warm colors will never go out of style. Oversized tables and chairs will make every meal feel like a special occasion. Clean, smooth lines will make the dining set comfortable enough to use all year long, even for a simple, casual meal. 

Whatever you decide, know that dining room furniture should reflect your space and personality all the time. How you decorate and accent it for the holidays is also completely a personal choice. So, choose your modern flare, or timeless traditional look, and your friends and family will love it.

How To Spend Thanksgiving


Are you tired of gorging on Thanksgiving and feeling like you’re about to burst? Then why not organize activities to get you and your guests to stop focusing on the stuffed bird that you just ingested! Here are some ideas to keep you busy while you burn off the massive feast you just had:

  •      Play Touch Football

If the majority of your family/guests are sports fans, then suggesting a touch football game might be a hit! Besides, seeing as they are sports fans, it might be a good way to pry their eyes away from the television.


  •     Play Board Games

Who said a little healthy competition never helped families bond on Thanksgiving? Pick a board game that everyone agrees upon and play multiple rounds to crown this year’s Thanksgiving board-game champion. Remember to be a good sport!


  • Watch the Parade

Since 1948, families have enjoyed watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Watching floats, giant balloons and marching bands roam down the streets of New York is a magical and fun way to spend the holiday with children. 


  • Give Thanks

This is what the holiday is really about: giving thanks. Have your guests give thanks and take the time to write down something they are thankful for. Showing gratitude will help the children learn about the true meaning of Thanksgiving.


  • Volunteer at a Soup Kitchen

Perhaps one of the most admirable ways to spend part of Thanksgiving is to serve food to the less fortunate. Whether it is at a soup kitchen, in a church or at a community center, this is surely a rewarding way to spend the holiday. If you cannot be present to serve the meal, you can pitch in by collecting and sorting donated food.

The purpose of this holiday is to express gratitude. It should inspire you to spend some quality time with your friends and family. Have fun while creating fond memories! Gratitude also helps you to connect with other people. Another way to harness your appreciation is to bless others.  If you are not spending Thanksgiving with friend and family this year, why not help out those in need. Happy Thanksgiving!

Living Room Sets: Mix and Match




Living Room Sets: Mix & Match

The living room or family room is known to be the family’s favorite room to chat together and spend some quality time.  This room should combine a mix of warmth and comfort, in order to enable a family to be inclined to gather in this space. Style, comfort and quality all matter to pull off this setting.  In order to achieve this mood, one must select the appropriate pieces to blend together. Blending furniture pieces in a living room does not necessarily imply that they must be from the same collection. On the contrary, a good living room design is a mix of cohesive pieces that blend in color, style and texture. In fact, one might say that even some opposites work well together to create an eclectic mix.

Sofa:
The Azlyn sofa features a vintage casual style, and infuses a mixed media look in such an elegant manner. In this mixture, we have exposed feet in a wood finish, a nailhead trim and gorgeous tufted upholstery. The curvaceous rolled arms provide added character to the sofa. Despite the elegance of the piece, the warm earthy tones create an inviting atmosphere.


Chair(s):
The Kannerdy chair features elegant refinement and rugged good looks that blend beautifully with the selected sofa. The dramatic style of the turned feet and the Charles of London arms enhance the English style with this pairing. In addition, the muted neutral tones harmonize well together and create an opportunity to add little pops of color in the room. Lastly, depending on the dimensions of your room, for an optimal design, allow for two chairs facing the sofa.




Ottoman:
Finally, the Hindell Park ottoman features a vintage casual style with button tufting detail.  The soft upholstery brightens any room with its colorful and soothing pattern. You’ll enjoy the comfortable atmosphere set by this ottoman once you have your feet up!

Although these pieces are very different and unique in their own way, some key elements such as the similarities with the feet, the muted natural tones and elegant refinement make them mesh well together.

Bedroom Sets: Mix and Match



Bedroom Sets: Mix and Match:
Did you know that the average person spends 33% of their lifetime sleeping? This statistic is based on 8 hours of sleep per day. That being said, if you spend one third of your lifetime in yourbedroom, then why not make it into a beautiful retreat and comfortable haven? So how exactly are you supposed to achieve a look that reflects peace and tranquility? Opt for neutral tones and gorgeous natural materials. In fact, here are a few propositions to help paint you a picture!

Bed:
The Maribel B138 Panel Bed features a beautiful relaxed cottage design with an urban appeal. The details along the scalloped top and base are bathed in a rich black finish, to create an earthy aesthetic.  This is an exemplary piece of how to transform your bedroom décor into an inviting atmosphere. 
Nightstand:
Who said that bedroom furniture needed to be matchy-matchy and from the same collection? Mixing furniture pieces from different collections can be just as delightful! The Charlowe B013-191 nightstand pairs beautifully with the panel bed, as it enhances the dark undertones found in the grain of the planks. The vintage charm of this piece, along with the distressing marks fit well with the casual cottage design of the bed.




Dresser:
Finally, who can forget a staple piece in the bedroom, the dresser! The Emerfielddresser features a chic farmhouse style which would work well from a country cottage to an urban city loft. The lovely two-tone finish and weatherworn appeal will add a bit of warmth to all the black hues paired together with all the pieces. In addition, the round metal hardware echoes the vintage-inspired look as seen on the nightstand.






As you can see, the edgy blend of these three pieces from separate collections is an argument well disputed – that random pieces can be put together to create a well-harmonized bedroom style.

Boys Bedroom Sets



Boy’s Bedroom:
Is your little tyke growing up to be quite the young man? Every parent wants to offer their little boy a space that is a reflection of their personality and interests. At this point, your son has outgrown his toddler-sized furniture and is ready to embrace a more mature look in his bedroom. Planes, trains, trucks and toys, there’s nothing quite like little boys! That being said, transform your son’s room with that boyhood spirit he has always wanted! The idea is to try to combine his interests with practicality and quality, so that his furniture can last… until he reaches his tween years of course!

Bed:
If you’re looking to change his bed, then you do not have one of those transformable cribs that can go from a crib to a daybed, and even a double bed! If your son had a toddler bed, then he likely outgrew it a while ago, and so you need something a little more mature-looking to mesh well with the new bedroom theme. Among the favorites for little boys are bunk bedsloft beds and trundle beds which are awesome for sleepovers. They are fun, functional and provide great storage!





Dresser:
Next, you need a dresser. Once you’ve chosen the bed, you can take a look at the matching dresser. However, if bedroom space is an issue, then a tall dresser is the better choice. You can still have loads of storage, but in a vertical manner.



Desk:
At this point, the little guy is not likely to get any homework assignments, but you can always opt for a desk as a craft station. That way you can tame the mess and keep it local! Eventually, he will get homework anyway!





Nightstand:
Last, but not least, the nightstand is a must for his bedside. It’s less likely to be a piece that is emphasized in a nursery set, but now you can get the matching nightstand for his new set. Aside from being handy for extra storage, he can use it to display home décor such as a table lamp, frames and an alarm clock.

Girl’s bedroom Sets


Girl’s Bedroom:
Is your little girl growing up fast and out of her baby furniture? Bye-bye baby, hello young lady! Every parent wants to make their little girl feel like a princess, by offering them a space that reflects their unique personality. Yes, redecorating can be quite overwhelming, but the idea is to incorporate some of your daughter’s main interests into an overall scheme. That way, she can enjoy her room for years to come…until she hits her tweens of course!

The bed:
If you’re looking to change her bed, you’ve most likely kept your daughter’s transformable crib or toddler bed until she outgrew it. Now you can go for something a little more mature-looking to mesh well with her theme. By this point, most little girls admire princesses. So the question is, how do you picture a princess bed? Most girls are taken by a poster bed or daybed! They have that princess quality! A neat feature that would really come in handy is the option of adding a trundle below. That way, your daughter can enjoy sleepovers!



Dresser:
Then there’s the dresser. Choosing the perfect bedroom furniture means getting the look, along with the function and quality. If bedroom space is an issue, selection a tall dresser would be a better option. Although a little girl may not need all of the storage space just yet, who’s to say she won’t eventually become a frequent mall visitor at some point! Even princesses like to change dresses.



Desk:
Another important piece is a desk. Although you might be selecting these furniture pieces before your daughter is subjected to any homework assignments, you can begin by using it as a craft station.






Nightstand:
Finally, how can we forget the nightstand? Every bedside is in need of one!  This is a piece that is not as likely to be included in a nursery. However, at this stage, it can come in handy for extra storage or to display décor such as a table lamp, frames and an alarm clock!
