The Best Dining Tables For Holiday Gatherings

Get ready to entertain for the Holidays. Start with choosing the right dining table that your family and friends can gather around comfortably. If you entertain in a big way, you’re going to need a big dining table. Pick a table that’s extendable for invited guests and those unexpected ones too. We love extendable dining tables for their sheer function. They can be the right size for everyday use, but can be expanded for Holiday parties and gatherings.

An oval Tulip style dining table will accommodate a large influx of Holiday guests as well. We’re a big fan of the Tulip dining table because it not only gives your space a timeless Mid Century Modern look, it also allows more leg room with the ingenious tulip pedestal base design.

Small apartment? Go BIG!

If you have a tiny living space, but you don’t want to limit your furniture options read this. Did you know you can actually maximize your space by adding large pieces of furniture? The trick to using large furniture like an oversized sectional or coffee table is to keep the remaining space you have to work with free of clutter. Also, make sure you choose light fabrics for large upholstered pieces. This will give any small room a light and airy feel. Adding a large chunky coffee table can be the focal point in your living space, so pick one that will look amazing. For small dining areas, we suggest a round table. And again, go big here too. Try dining chairs that will not make your space look and feel cluttered. The trick here is to pay attention to the chair legs. Choose mid-century dining chairs with hairpin or thin wooden legs, or pick modern dining chairs with wire legs. I personally like transparent chairs that play with light and space altogether. So Go Big when you Go Home, even if you don’t have a lot of space.

Embrace Those Curves | Why We Love A Curvy Sofa

Curvaceous couches are trending. We’ve always liked a sofa with some personality, so we’re thrilled modern sofas with curves are so popular now. Here are a few reasons why we think a curvy sofa could be the solution to make your living room come alive.

The Price Is Right

A curved sofa used to be very expensive. In fact, only a few years ago, it would be hard to find one under $3000. Now with modern manufacturing and modern materials, curvy sofas are very affordable. We’ve even found some under $1000, and they look amazing.  So when you’re thumbing through those expensive furniture magazines and run across a sofa with curves, know there’s probably one you can find that’s similar and way more affordable.

Perfect For Gatherings

Curvy sofas are made to bring people together. They provide a more intimate feeling. Your guests will instantly feel compelled to be more relaxed and comfortable. The cluster element of a curved sofa allows for good group settings while still maintaining a casual and conversational atmosphere. We think a curved sofa will welcome you and your guests with open arms.

Retro Vibes

Vladimir Kagan and Isamu Noguchi were designers in the Mid Century who knew how to use curved shapes in their designs. Some of their curved sofas are still very popular today. In fact, we see their style influence in almost every curved sofa design today.  Even though curved sofas are very popular today, their style actually reflects the Mid Century era in which they first originated. It’s rather amazing how a curved sofa can give a room a retro and modern vibe all at the same time.

You need a Cantilever chair (but may not know it).

A cantilever chair is a chair whose seating and framework are not supported by the typical arrangement of 4 legs, but instead is held erect and aloft by a single leg or legs that are attached to one end of a chair’s seat and bent in an L shape, thus also serving as the chair’s supporting base.

If you have a modern or eclectic decor, a Cantilever chair would be the perfect addition to any seating area in your home. They’re sleek and provide a minimalist, uncluttered look. When choosing a Cantilever chair, know its purpose–Will you use it as a dining chair, accent chair, or lounge chair? There are various types of Cantilever chairs, so the key is choosing the right one for your application. We really like the Cantilever dining chairs with the cane seat and back. They were originally designed by Marcel Breuer. Marcel Breuer was one of the first designers who introduced the Cantilever chair to the world. Try experimenting with Cantilever chairs. Mix some in your decor. Once you try them, you’ll love your new look.

We loved the rich textures and vibrant colors we saw. Mixing Mid Century Modern with Desert Modern was something truly unique to Palm Springs. Needless to say, we learned a lot about design from this trip. Here are some of our favorite rooms. Get inspired and try some Palm Springs Desert Modern flavor for yourself.

Which rug should I buy for my living room?

So, we get this question all the time. Picking the right furniture can be difficult, but choosing the right rug can be an even bigger challenge. 

When buying a rug for your living space consider 4 key things. 

#1.  Know your decor style

#2.  Consider the rug material

#3.  Carefully consider your colors

#4.  Know your room & rug size

Let’s begin……

Know Your Decor Style

Assuming you’ve already purchased your furniture and/or you’ve already created a design theme for your living space, pick a rug that will go with your design language. For example, if you have a Rustic Modern look, a cowhide rug may work. If cowhides aren’t your thing, a woven rug with natural fibers would look great. If you have a thoroughly modern and contemporary home, a woven rug with abstract designs could be a perfect choice. You can never go wrong with a rug with geometric designs, if your home is sleek and modern. Let’s say your home is more traditional with wood floors. We like Bohemian-style rugs on wood floors. Rugs with intricate designs from the Orient will also look amazing on wood floors as well. Now keep in mind, nothing is ever written in store. Sometimes being creative with your rug choice is the best way to go, especially if you live in a loft space. Try rugs with southwestern designs, Persian rugs, or rugs with geometric patterns will also look amazing in creative loft spaces. We’ll even give you the green light if you want to mix and match different rug styles.  Go for it!

Which rug should I buy for my living room

Rug Materials

  • Wool rug
  • Cotton rugs
  • Jute and sisal rugs
  • Silk and viscose rugs
  • Nylon rugs
  • Olefin rugs
  • Polyester rugs
  • Animal hide rug

Take a look at the 5 easiest to clean rug materials to make your cleaning routine a breeze.

  1. Wool. Wool rugs are known to be quite durable
  2. Polypropylene. Polypropylene is a very easy to clean synthetic rug material.
  3. Jute
  4. Cotton
  5. Seagrass

Most wool rugs will hold up well for a relatively long time, but there is a simple step you can take to extend their lifespan. The critical thing is to put a pad underneath. Most rugs do not wear out from the top, but from the bottom, where the knots rub against the floor. A pad works as a shock absorber, keeping the knots away from hard surfaces and holding the rug in place.

Color

Color and pattern are also important considerations. There is no point in buying a long-lasting rug if it is going to be stained by foot traffic. That means no whites or creams and no dark solid colors (think of how quickly a car with black paint appears to get dirty). Your best bet is to go with a hue somewhere in between. Search out either a solid that has specks of color in it or something with a pattern that will camouflage pet hair, spills, and dirt.

Room Size & Rug Size

Measure, measure, measure. We can’t say it enough. Make sure you know the exact measurements of your living space before you buy your rug. A rug should be an accent to your floor. Normally, you do not want to purchase a rug that’s too large or one that will cover the entire room floor. You may need carpet if you’re trying to cover the entire floor. Generally, a rug should only cover a portion of your floor and never be overbearing. 

Keep at least 18 inches of bare floor exposed by the rug’s edges. Selecting a rug for the living room usually comes down to three choices: 5×8, 8×10, or 9×12. Some size guides recommend that either all the furniture rests on the rug, or all the furniture, except for the coffee table, is placed completely off the rug.

Decorating With Blue Furniture

Decorating in all neutral tones is the trend right now, but we often forget how impactful the color blue can be. Known for its calming and soothing capabilities, using the color blue in your decor can make it stand out. Since there are many shades of blue out there, I would first start by identifying what type of mood you want your room to convey. If you’re looking for a coastal, beachy vibe, choose lighter blues with aqua green tones. Denim blues go great with rustic modern decors and for a seductive vibe, try deep, rich, dark blues in a bedroom or living room.  Below are some of our favorite blue rooms. We hope they’ll unlock some inspiration for you to add some color.

Eames chairs are the most iconic chairs ever made. They’re easy to recognize and are popular for good reason.

Here’s a little Eames education on some of your favorite chairs designed by Charles & Ray Eames.
