Our furniture pick of the week is the Palms! Up bar cabinet.
An artistic take on the classic palm tree, Palms Up! provides a stunning focal point for your living or dining room. However, beauty is not just skin deep. Behind the hand-carved doors reside the quintessential bar for entertaining. A white marble work surface sits atop a deep drawer for storing drink making essentials and two open shelves that will cradle your favorite wines. The interior is finished in a Soft Taupe and features a mirrored back with hanging wine glass holder. This closed storage piece truly sets the bar high.
We used Palms Up! in our front window display where it played perfectly into the summer party we created. One of our favorite parts of this piece is the hardware. Each door has a gold bamboo piece as the pull while the inside drawers have gold pulls with inlaid crystals.
What do you think, would you put Palms Up! in your home?
This week’s furniture pick is the Franklin Street Bed.
Franklin is a stunning bed that has tufting on both the headboard and footboard, creating chic detailing. The tufting is made even more stylish by the gray velvet upholstery that covers the bed.
Wood legs and small nail heads create a bit of rustic contrast to the classic tufting.
This bed would pair beautifully with a variety of bedroom pieces ranging from mirrored nightstands to a natural wood dresser or rustic white armoire.
Our favorite part of upholstered beds is the comfort of the headboard, allowing you to sit up and enjoy reading, watching television, or relaxing at night.
If you’re searching for a chic and stylish bed with a rustic twist, Franklin may just be the perfect fit. Franklin also has a current home on our showroom floor, meaning you can see it in person. Stop by this weekend to see if it’s just your style!
If you’ve been following along with us this week, you may have seen a few photos of our new window display. Today we thought we’d show you detail shots of the space to give you an idea of how to use color in your own home.
You can check out a full run-down of the space here by Designer Kendra Lohmeyer.
One of the questions I asked Kendra as we were filming was why she thought people were afraid to use color in their homes. Her response was that often times people feel overwhelmed and confused by color, not knowing what shades to use or how to coordinate them, so they end up going completely neutral instead.
Kendra’s goal for this space was to help people become more comfortable, and even excited by color. Color shouldn’t be overwhelming, it should be inviting. Kendra used a variety of colors in this space, which may not be what she’d use in someone’s home, but she really wanted to show customers that numerous colors in various shades really do work beautifully together.
If full color is not your thing, choose one or two to use as accents in your space. This way you can change out less expensive pieces like pillows, throws, vases, and other decor when you get tired of the colors you used.
How do you use color in your home? We would love to hear from you!
Our newest arrival on the showroom floor is this stunning entertainment console paired with these display cabinets. This set got lots of attention at our store meeting this morning as it has something we haven’t had on the floor in quite some time, a fireplace!
Have you ever wanted the ambiance and warmth of a fire without the expense of a fireplace or the mess of a fire? This piece is your answer! The faux fire is created using LED lights, creating the perfect glow. Heat is optional and can be turned on during cooler months or off when you’d rather have the look of the fire than the warmth.
Crafted of hardwood solids and variegated walnut veneers in a casual distressed finish, these pieces capture the natural, raw beauty of the Pacific Coast Highways seaside cliffs and misty coastline. The collection is crafted of a rare and unique cut of Walnut veneer called “variegated” due to its high level of color contrast. Big Sur’s natural finish allows the color variations to show through; creating an authentic organic look.
Visit us today to see the Big Sur entertainment console and display cabinets in person, they truly are beautiful!
The Fair Oaks bed is part of the Hill Country Collection from Hooker. Inspired by the most beautiful examples of American countryside, Hooker Furniture’s Hill Country Collection imparts an authentic American character. Hill Country is a collection of bedroom, dining, home office and accent furniture crafted of flat-cut rustic white oak veneer that is cracked before the finish is applied to appear seasoned over time.
The bed’s finish is Aa timeworn saddle brown (BRN) that is paired with an anthracite black with light dusty-wax hang up (BLK) to create a two-tone finish that is as authentic as the countryside from with it emanated.
Tufting on the headboard and a weathered look make the perfect combination, creating a classic bed with a stylish twist. Visit us today to see this beautiful bed in person!
Our Furniture Pick of the Week is the Epic Console Table. At 14 inches deep, Epic is brilliant in a foyer or behind a sofa, ideally proportioned for today’s homes. A framework of gold-plated metal supports two long Mappa Burl veneer shelves.
Epic is a piece from Cynthia Rowley’s Sporty Collection by Hooker Furniture. Sporty is a collection where mind, body and matter synergize. It’s a decorating zone where the looks are crisp and tailored. Geometry and precision matter. So does comfort. Sporty is like a second skin, all at once at ease and empowered. Just like you.
Cynthia’s goal with her collection was to create furniture that will brighten your space and make your home a happy place. With the functionality, style, and shape of the Epic Console she’s done just that.
The Epic Console is one of the many pieces from the Cynthia Rowley Collection that we have on our floor. Visit us today to see it in person!
Among all the bright colors filling homes and closets this summer, Lapis Blue is one of the more neutral colors that’s popping up everywhere. According to Benjamin Moore, taking its name from the prized semi-precious stone, blue lapis is a deeper mid-tone blue with an intense amount of purple, creating the rich color favored by Cleopatra.
Lapis Blue is stunning on the walls, either throughout a room or just as an accent wall. The deep tone brings personality to a space while still allowing for different colors and styles of furniture.
If you’re willing to step outside the box, why not give a Lapis sofa or bed a chance? This color looks beautiful on upholstery and truly makes a statement in a space. We especially love it in velvet, with lots of tufting.
To add some color and style to your space without completely overhauling it, try adding a Lapis Blue accent pillow, throw, or even some artwork.
Although fall will bring changes in “stylish colors”, Lapis Blue will stay on trend for years to come. This classic color is timeless and seasonally transitional, making it the perfect addition to your home.
What do you think, is Lapis Blue a little too bold or just your style?
Our furniture pick of the week is this beautiful Curata entertainment console. The Curata Collection was created with a curated chic modern look and an eclectic mix of sophisticated materials and finishes. Curata, meaning “curated” in Italian, mixes materials like black nickel, stainless brushed brass and marble with three distinct rustic modern finishes for a simple, yet urbane design. Inspired by timeless shapes and chic materials, Curata exudes a “less is more” feel by spotlighting the design of the piece and giving precise attention to detail.
This piece was also created by Hooker Furniture’s multiple-step finish process of up to 16 finish steps. This results in an unsurpassed clarity, depth and color richness and durability to our finishes. Through hand-craftsmanship such as rubbing and padding, our finishes feel as good as they look, with a smoothness that is delightful to the touch.
The Curata features four touch latch wood doors, one wood shelf behind the two outside doors, two ventilated wood shelves behind the center pair of doors, a ventilated back panel, and one FC705 three plug outlet power supply.
If you think the Curata is the perfect addition to your space, give us a call at (480) 892-0174 or visit us in store this weekend!
Although we specialize in furniture, we also know that wall decor is just as important when styling a space. Whether its artwork, a mirror, or clock, wall decor creates warmth in the home.
If your room feels unfinished, cold, and bare, even though it’s full of furniture, wall decor is your answer! Adding pieces to the walls will bring everything together, creating a cohesive look with texture, color, and dimension.
Below are some of the spaces in our store that were beautifully finished off by what’s hanging on the walls. Take a look around and tell us in the comments below which is your favorite.
This custom canvas piece was commissioned to perfectly compliment the sofa it hangs above.
Clocks are no longer just for telling time! This metal clock takes up a lot of wall space without feeling heavy.
A framed canvas is the perfect way to bring some creativity to a more formal room.
This detailed round mirror allows for both function and style over an entry way chest.
Colorful abstract art is the perfect compliment to a more neutral dining space.
The frames are what really make these pieces special. Their detailing completely changes the art inside, creating a more formal and modern look.
We love the way oversized artwork was paired with some fun mirrors here to break up the more formal feel.
