There is no point of a Man Cave without the entertainment system. Large flat screen TVs, so you can watch your favorite football player run across the field, like he’s running through your house. You also need surround sound to experience the true spirit of the home game.

Tips For Purchasing Outdoor Furniture

Posted on

Outdoor furniture season is finally here!

Here are a few tips to consider before purchasing pieces for your summer backyard bash.

 

 

Make a List:

What is the primary function for your outdoor space? Will you host dinner parties or cocktails? Is it more for a reading and relaxing space? Make a list of things you would like to do in the space so you can determine what type of furniture you need to purchase.

 

 Easy Care:

Most metal, teak, cedar, and resin wicker are unfazed by the forces of nature. Try to stay away from white cushions because we all know that birds eat berries, so eventually birds will…well you know how that story ends.

 

 

Color:

Add splashes of color to your mini oasis using outdoor pillows, rugs, and lighting. Don’t settle for boring white lights, add an extra twinkle with blue and green lights.

 

 

Storage:

Even the toughest outdoor furniture need some love and care. Keep in mind that you should put these pieces in storage, like the garage or basement, once summer time is over. Some furniture even stack together for easy storage! You can also   invest in patio furniture covers to protect them during the harsh winter.

Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum)

The Peace Lily adds elegance to any bedroom. They do well in low lit rooms, but watch out for drooping leaves because they’re telling you they’re thirsty. Just make sure soil is dry between watering.

Area Rugs

Posted on

Spring starts from the ground up!

Time to wake up from winter hibernation! Birds are chirping and flowers are blooming,  it’s the perfect time to prepare your home for more bright and sunny days. Changing little things, like introducing an area rug into the room can breathe life to once a dull space.

*The bigger the area rug the better. Does your living room have a mix of traditional and modern furniture? A larger area rug better anchors together multiple pieces in the space, making them appear to be a cohesive unit.

  *Rugs act as a base, it’s the canvas for your room. An area rug serves multiple purposes. A bright vibrant color or geometric design on an area rug will serve as a focal point to any room. An area rug with a subtle design and a neutral color will act as an anchor for the room, creating a natural flow with a space that incorporates different styles of furniture pieces.

Here a few things to consider when deciding which Area Rug is right for your home:

*Size of the room.

*Color scheme of the furniture. Do you want your area rug to match, contrast, or blend with the color scheme of the furniture?

*Are you going for a more traditional or modern design?

*Do you have any fiber requirements? All natural vs. synthetic.

*What kind of space is the area rug going to live in? The living room, bedroom, dining room, etc.

American Leather Comfort Sleeper Sale Begins March 3, 2017

Posted on

AMERICAN LEATHER COMFORT SLEEPER SALE STARTS TOMORROW!

SALE ENDS APRIL 4, 2017

Spring 2017 American Leather Comfort Sleeper SALE is finally here!

Leann Sebastian, designer at Rockridge Furniture & Design says that doing your homework first will guarantee a smooth sailing purchase process.

Here are a few tips from Leann to help YOU decide which Comfort Sleeper is right for you:

 1. KNOW THE DIMENSIONS OF THE SPACE. Have those dimensions handy when you purchase a Comfort Sleeper. You need to make sure the sleeper can open and close in the space.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
2. HOW MANY GUESTS WOULD YOU LIKE TO ACCOMMODATE? Deciding on the size of the mattress, from king to cot size, depends on how many people you want to comfortably fit on it.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
3. BESIDES BEING A SLEEPER, WHAT KIND OF DAILY FUNCTIONS DOES IT SERVE? Will it be in the TV room? Family room? Formal living room?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
4. HAVE A BUDGET IN MIND. Pricing for the sleepers is determined by which type of mattress, what size of mattress, and which material you upholster the piece in. It’s good to have a budget in mind to narrow down the options.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
5. HAVE PHOTOS OF THE SPACE HANDY. Take pictures of the space where you intend to put the sleeper. It’s good to have at least 4 pictures that give a sense of the room. This helps the designer better assist you in choosing the right color and style of your Comfort Sleeper. Is there a rug in the space? If so take a detailed picture of the rug so you can decide which color fabric or leather will compliment your space.

1. Create an intimate environment by using globe string lights to enclose a vast outdoor space. Make a canopy of string lights in your backyard. The lights softly illuminate the nighttime sky.

5. And for your last trick, drape a blanket of string lights along a hanging wire, fence or over a tree branch to create a wall of twinkling lights. Forget the claustrophobic photo booth, your guests will be dying to take photos in front of your cascading lights.
