Sometimes to make an improvement to a room, you don’t have to completely renovate the space. This past year, I’d been feeling very unsatisfied about my living room and dining space. Instead of completely redoing those spaces, my family replaced our cheap TV console with a wood TV cabinet. And, we replaced our maple dining table and chairs with a darker stained wood dining set that better matches the wood paneling in our dining space.
Say Goodbye to 2016 and Out-of-Date Furniture With These Modern Dining Tables
What a year it has been.
If you’re like me, you’re probably reflecting on 2016 and planning on how to make 2017 better. I remember making a goal to declutter my house last year. While the clutter still lingers, I did update a lot of new furniture. I replaced my worn couch, cheap TV console and clunky dinette set.
We often have customers visiting our Vermont furniture store when they’re in the early stages of planning a second home in the Green Mountain State. Many are looking for a Vermont interior designer, architect or builder so I try to keep up with Vermont’s home design world. I stop by and visit local firms when I have a chance.
Bring the tropics to you and turn your home into a permanent vacation.
I’ve recently been thinking a lot about a vacation to somewhere tropical…Hawaii, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Thailand. Well, realistically, those thoughts will have to stay in my dreams. But, I’ve noticed a popular trend right now that’s fitting for my vacation dreams. It seems a lot of people are channeling the tropics with a design circa 1940s Beverly Hills.
Exeter Collection: Out with the old and in with the newest in dining furniture.
Who says a table has to have four straight legs? We don’t. And, we’re happy the craftspeople behind Copeland Furniture agree. Our idea of table design is really put to the test with the new Copeland Exeter Collection.
It may be time for a yard sale if your living room furniture hasn’t been updated since 1995.
Over the years it’s easy to amass furniture from many different places. Yard sales, inherited heirlooms, estate sales and children have all been the cause of mismatched furniture pieces in homes across America. Even if you have matching living room furniture, chances are it’s been in your home for a decade or two.
This is Part 1 of a series of posts on DIY home decor for Vermont’s second home owners.
Second Homes in Vermont
Second home sales in Vermont are booming. Last weekend, Ken and I took a drive through Wilmington & Dover in southeastern Vermont, home to resort communities like The Hermitage Club, Mount Snow and Stratton Mountain. New homes & developments are everywhere in the Deerfield Valley, especially luxury second homes and vacation homes.
More than just storage, I’ve come across creative uses of sideboards & buffets and I’m sharing them with you!
Before I worked in the furniture industry, I looked at China Cabinets and sideboards as clunky furniture that my parents stored their fancy fine china in. I didn’t look at them as a necessary piece of furniture. Now though, I know just important they are and how useful they can be!
Known for its sleek lines and urban designs, Copeland Bedroom Furniture is a stylish addition to any house! Often paying homage to mid-century and luxury design, whether in the angle of a leg or the design of a headboard, Copeland furniture is anything but simple.
I wanted to make a list for you highlighting some different collections and pieces we have available. The list discusses styles and who might benefit best from each piece. Keep reading to learn more!
1. Soho Panel Bed: This bed is perfect for someone looking for a truly unique bed. It’s designed with mid-century modern undertones and a contemporary floating headboard and platform frame. The two-tone wood design is customizable with three different options or you can choose to have it made with one type of wood.
2. Soho 1 Drawer High Nightstand: Retro and futuristic don’t normally go together, but they partner nicely for the Soho Nightstand. With the box seemingly floating, this type of design comes from highly skilled craftspeople. The added storage is a plus for those in need of more space.
5. Dominion Bed with Leather Headboard: The perfect combination of masculine and feminine, this bed is popular with everyone. The leather headboard takes the bed from simple and sleek to sophisticated and polished. You can mix and match the wood and upholstery to make it your own.
