Mad Men Mod

Mad Men Mod, Midcentury Modern furniture at Homemakers Furniture

With the final episodes of Mad Men airing on Sunday nights, we’ve had our minds on everything Midcentury Modern. We love the cozy, relaxed feel of Don Draper’s sunken living room, but most of us don’t have his budget! That’s why we were thrilled to find such a similar look on our showroom floor.

The latest addition to our ever-changing showroom floor is a brand-new Style Circle, located in front of the escalators and the Treat Cafe. Before you chow down on a freshly baked cookie (maybe link to cookie blog here?), witness the latest excellent work of our talented design team: the lake house.

As we dream of lazy summer days under the sun, our staff has put together an incredible cabin scene, complete with a dock, a rowboat and a furnished bedroom. There’s plenty of home décor to peruse, like throw pillows, wall hangings and planters, that’ll add charm to your home. Quantities are limited on many home décor items, so these deals are only available in the store.

Uncorking Marsala, Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year

Uncorking Marsala, Pantone's 2015 Color of the Year, color trends 2015

Marsala, an earthy, reddish-brown hue, was named the 2015 color of the year by color authority Pantone.

Each year since 2000, the company studies trends in fashion, entertainment and design to select one hue that is expected to have a large influence in the upcoming year. The impact of such a choice is seen not only in the clothing and furniture industries, but also in home décor, graphic design and product packaging as well.

This year’s selection is a departure from the past few years, when electric hues like Radiant Orchid, Emerald and Tangerine Tango carried the banner. Named for the fortified wine of Sicily, Marsala offers a ruddy richness that is substantial, warm and versatile in a variety of settings.
