9 Tips for Refreshing Your Home

Pretty dog bed

In the pages of our catalog, you’ve probably noticed the tips that we include for design inspiration. From the products we sell to the tips we add to our catalog, our goal is to help you decorate your home inside and out to reflect your unique personality! Today, we thought we’d round up all the fun tips from our Winter 2015 catalog.

A pair of tall, narrow mirrors look great above a couch

What to hang above the sofa is always a conundrum. It’s a huge blank space that is a prominent space in your home! Our solution is to hang a pair of tall, narrow mirrors above the couch to reflect light and create a focal point.

We love using bookshelves for storage in the dining room

Bookshelves are usually much more narrow than buffets or console tables which makes them the perfect way to squeeze storage space into a small dining room.

Use our modular system to create a bar in your home

Have you been wanting a fabulous bar area in your home? Our Bar Furniture Collection is designed to work with your needs, whether you love classic cocktails, wine, or just want extra storage space for glasses!

A twin sleeper is an easy way to create a multitasking guest space

Don’t have the space for a dedicated guest bedroom? A twin sleeper is the perfect solution. It’s a narrow settee by day, but an extra bed by night!

Our Larkin Swivel Glider is a cult favorite -- it now comes in leather!

Our Larkin Swivel Glider is a cult favorite — and we’re excited to now offer it in leather!

Stripes make everything better

We’re of the school that stripes pretty much make everything better, and our Selma Right Arm chaise is certainly no exception. Think outside the solids and consider upholstering something in a classic stripe — it won’t go out of style but has a chic look you’ll love.

Cowhide rugs are chic and layered

We love the texture that a cowhide rug brings to a space! It feels eclectic and modern without overwhelming a room. Plus, they’re easier to maintain than you might think!

A glass table lamp is great for a room that already has a lot going on

In a space that can get cluttered easily, think living room or office, we love using a large glass table lamp, like our Ella Lamp. It’s dramatic but also clear, so it won’t weigh your space down.
