Pick Of The Week – Tall Buffet

-MONDAY’S PICK OF THE WEEK-   This unique dining room buffet is Robin’s favorite piece; it’s very different than most buffets.  The curved sides and mirrored backsplash (which is optional) add to the unique look.  It is also 40″ high which is higher than most buffets offering a lot of storage.  (With the backsplash it is 53″ high.)

This beautiful piece comes in three lengths:  a two door, 38″ wide, a three door, 59″ wide and a four door, 72″ wide.   This company is great with custom sizing also.  If you need it 66″ long we can do that for you.

You have your choice of wood: brown maple, oak, hard maple, quarter sawn oak, elm, rustic cherry (leaving the knots and mineral deposits on the boards) and cherry (with no knots or mineral deposits).  You also have your choice of hardware and stain, depending on your wood there can be up to 8 different stain options.

If you have any questions about this week’s highlight or would like to purchase one for your home, contact Robin at 845-778-1500.

Has it been that long?

february firesideWe’re knee-deep into the new year already!

A new post hasn’t appeared here in a few months… there was more than enough “noise” leading into the holidays, we certainly didn’t need to add to it!

When is the last time you’ve been in one of our showrooms? You’ll be thrilled with the changes! Fresh new fabrics grace our sample walls in all locations & new pieces replace those sold during our latest Floor Sample Sale.  While the quality & service remain “old-fashioned” – the furniture styles themselves have evolved with the times!

As you pack away the decor of the Winter season, it’s a great time to look at the “blank” canvas of your home & consider adding that piece that would make your home more hospitable.  Whether getting a better night’s sleep on a Shifman Mattress, a dining table that doesn’t force even young adults to the kids’ table, a buffet that would make entertaining so much easier, or a sofa that doesn’t have the “ghost of snacks & spills past”, we offer all you need!

If it’s been a while, we hope to see you soon!

Fast Facts on American Hardwoods

Homegrown ~ Don’t search the globe for renewable and sustainable materials:  American hardwoods fit the bill! From alder and cherry to the oaks and walnut – to name just a few – American hardwoods have been bringing warmth and beauty to the built environment for centuries.

Selection ~ Nearly two dozen abundant species provide plenty of color, grain and pattern.  American hardwood forests offer more choices than any other temperate hardwood forest in the world.

The Natural Choice ~ American hardwoods are the natural choice for environmentally conscious builders, architects and designers looking to specify green materials.

Healthy ~ American hardwoods are ideal for healthy environments.  They don’t trap dust, dirt and other allergens.  Low-VOC finishes keep hardwoods looking great and performing well.

Renewing Resource ~ The USDA Forest Service reports that more hardwoods grow than are harvested each year.  Since 1953, the volume of hardwoods in American forests has increased 119%.  Supply is increasing and it is sustainable.  

Natural Regeneration ~ By mirroring natural occurrences, hardwood forestry practices are a long-established form of biomimicry that supports natural regeneration.

Responsible Harvesting ~ In american hardwood forestry, based on regional climate factors, single-tree selection is a preferred harvesting method.  Foresters choose individual trees for harvest based on a complex array of considerations.

Life Cycle Costing ~ When considering life cycle costing, the useful life of American hardwoods can span generations, making them more favorable and cost effective than most other materials.

Energy Efficient ~ It takes less energy to make products from wood than other materials.  Making products from aluminum, glass, plastic, cement or brick can require as much as 126 times form energy than making them from wood.

Sail Through Entertaining

Sail Through Entertaining

Wow, Summer is more than half over already. This time of the year we are always trying to enjoy the outdoors and don’t worry so much about the inside of our homes. We hope you are enjoying your Summer.

Soon it will be time to be inside your home with your family sharing those special times. Is your home ready for nesting again? Is your Living Room cozy and comfortable? Is your Dining Room in need of a new look? Does your mattress need to be replaced?

If your Dining Room needs to be spruced up here are some simple things to think about. First, you can change just your table or just your chairs to phase in a whole new look. Do you want to add a hutch and or a server?

What shape table are you looking for, oval, rectangle, round or a newer look, boat shaped (traditionally seen in conference tables, there is an abundance of space in the “middle” for serving dishes & decoration). The table leg will help set the tone for the finished look of your room. We have turned legs, straight legs and legs with a slight curve to them to select from. Your chairs also play an important role in your dining room, while style is important, make sure that the chairs that you choose are comfortable enough for you to sit and enjoy not only your meal but the time that follows.

If you have existing furniture that you want to keep using, consider bringing a chair or hutch door to our showroom, or we can bring samples to your home. Matching though, is not always necessary. Sometimes it is more fun just to make sure they flow together and don’t clash.

More on stain, paint, & finish choices next time, so check back or subscribe to our blog for all you need to know about furnishing your home…
