A Modern (More Functional) Take On The Sofa Bed

In honor of yesterday’s discussion of multitasking furniture, today I want to give a nod to maybe the most derided (yet important!) of all dual-purposed furniture: the sofa bed. Now, these aren’t exactly popular, for more reasons than one. Futons are the bread and butter of college students and first-time renters, cheaper than either a […]

Multitasking Coffee Tables – Adding Functionality To Your Living Room

As someone who’s spent most of her life living in smallish spaces, I’ve really learned the value of making the most of the space you have. That can mean anything from hanging an extra shelf in your bedroom to choosing just the right coffee table. Even small changes can make your home feel less cluttered, […]

Choosing A TV Stand For Your New Flatscreen TV

It’s the time of year for gift giving, and more than any other time it’s the time of year for buying big gifts for your whole family, like a brand shiny new TV. But while every member of your family is basically guaranteed to go bananas for a new television, in the excitement it can […]

Urban Chic – Modern Takes On Classic Furniture Forms

I’m in the unique position of having a compact, urban lifestyle but taste that tends more toward the antique. Now, in Europe and in some older parts of east coast cities, mixing the two is far from unheard of. In fact, historical apartment buildings in Paris are defined as much by their interior decor as […]

Glass Tables – A New Look For Your Dining Room

If you’re in the market for a new dining table, chances are you’re looking at one that’s made of wood. Wood is the most traditional material for tables, and so ubiquitous that you might not even think to look for any other type of table. But glass tables are a unique, beautiful modern alternative that […]

Top Five Home Improvements For The Holiday Season

The time between Halloween and New Years is probably the single worst time of year to do any kind of major home remodeling.

But this is also the time of year where people that […]

By and large, outdoor furniture isn’t terribly interesting. Sure, it can be attractive, but I’d venture to say it’s not all that often that you find an outdoor patio set that’s really unusual or unique.

Bistro Tables And Bar Sets – Tall Tables To Dress Up Your Dining

I’ve always loved bistro tables – you know, the tall, sometimes delicate tables that come to mind when you think of a Parisian cafe or maybe a trendy nightclub. They’re the kind of tables you see when you go out, but not often in the home. I think it’s a distinction worth breaking, so here […]

Need A Smarter Way To Redecorate? Try Furniture Slipcovers!

I’ll be the first to admit, I’ve never been a huge fan of furniture slipcovers. And I feel pretty justified in that, because in all honesty, a lot of them are pretty bad. To me they’ve always been what you do if your kids or pets make a mess on your nice, expensive sofa one […]
