Bench*Made by Bassett Brings Family Together Beautifully

Packed schedules and digital distractions make time spent together sharing a meal especially meaningful these days. We live in a world filled with comings and goings, and oftentimes the chances to sit down and relax with family are few and far between. Bench*Made by Bassett can help you bridge the gap between quick dinners and meaningful family gatherings. So whether you’re planning an elaborate holiday feast, gourmet dinner party or a simple family meal, the room sets the tone. Make your gatherings unforgettable by seating your loved ones around a custom-made Bench*Made by Bassett dining set.

Made to Last

Our hand-built furniture is made-to-order by skilled craftsmen in the U.S. We construct solid-wood heirloom-quality furniture from Appalachian-grown maple leaf lumber. Using traditional tools and methods our artisans create a dining set that will last for generations. From the graceful curve a chair leg to lovingly hand-planed surfaces, every piece we make is one-of-a-kind.

Customized to your Taste, Lifestyle and Budget

Rustic and traditional styles come in 15 different finishes, ranging from painted white, black and chalk rubbed to a variety of natural tones that reveal individual characteristics of the wood. If you prefer a sleek, blank slate for your fabulous meals or a surface marked by the life of the lumber, Bench*Made will craft dining furniture that meets all your style needs. Four kinds of tables and a profusion of mix-and-match seating options and upholstery selections offer you shapes, colors and style that will fit your room and life—whether it’s your kitchen, formal dining room or open floor plan. You’re an original and we want your furniture to reflect your originality too.

Live Edge or Classic Edge

Every aspect of your piece is special, down to the last detail. A rare feature of Bench*Made by Bassett furniture is the option of a classic edge, “beauty in lines” or live edge, “beauty in curves”. These two personalities give you the option to create something that is unique to you and your family. For the live edge, our craftsmen follow the natural characteristics of the wood grain to shape the edges, creating an undeniably rustic appeal. The classic edge option offers traditionalists a clean, more formal look. With Bench*Made we want it to fit to you, and your style. Choose the option that fits you the best, and we’ll take care of the rest. Our styles will stand the test of time, and be perfect for you and your family for years to come.

Envision your family and friends gathered together for a special holiday meal. The room is filled with delicious aromas, soft lighting and laughter. Stories are passed around the table along with the mashed potatoes, and the people you love most are connecting, sharing and making memories that will last forever. Sounds great, right—straight out of a movie. Or … the kids are fighting over the last dinner roll, your mom is complaining the roast is too dry, and your shady cousin is hitting on your best friend. The reality is family dinners can sometimes be stressful, but they will always be beautiful at a table crafted just for you from Bench*Made by Bassett.

How To Ruin Your Living Room

The living room is the room in the house that no one wants to leave. You want it to have everything, from comfort to the latest gadgets. Finding Audio Video Installers that can implement an easy to use system would be ideal too. How you choose to decorate this space can determine the atmosphere of the room – most everyone wants their living room to be an inviting environment for friends and family to relax. Although no one wants to intentionally ruin their living room, the following list is a sure way to do it.

1) Buying uncomfortable furniture

Stylish but uncomfortable furniture
That sofa you saw in the store may look great, but is it actually comfortable? A good looking sofa is practically useless if you can’t sit comfortably in it. The easiest way to ruin your living room is to fill it with useless stuff. It’s important to create a comfortable environment that you can see yourself spending hours binge-watching your favorite TV show or playing a board game with the family.

What to do: Test out your furniture while you’re in the store before you make the purchase. Instead of just sitting on it, lay back and get comfortable to figure out whether or not you can see yourself spending countless hours on it comfortably.

2) Not choosing a focal point

Choosing Focal Point in living room
This is a common mistake made by many when decorating their living room. Not setting a focal point in your room can create an unorganized and cluttered feel.

What to do: Choose a focal point such as the fireplace or TV to arrange your furniture around.

3) Trying to match every detail

This can be tricky since it’s naturally tempting to want to create flow and harmony in your space. However, matching every single color and pattern tends to make a room appear flat. Unless you particularly want your living room to look like a hotel room, mixing and matching styles is a great way to create contrast.

What to do: Incorporate contrasting colors and patterns into your living room decor to create a more dimensional look.

4) Using too many throw pillows

Throw Pillows
Throw pillows are a great way to add an accent color to a couch or loveseat, but adding too many can make your sofa feel cluttered. Not to mention the pain of having to awkwardly ask your guests to move the pillows every time they sit down.

What to do: Limit your use of throw pillows or purchase pillows that you are okay with people sitting on.

5) Pushing furniture against the walls

Furniture Against Wall
Although it can be tempting to arrange your furniture against the wall to create an extra room, doing this can make a small room appear even smaller. Arranging your furniture closer together towards the middle of the room invites your guests to converse with one another.

What to do: “Float” your furniture away from the walls to create space in your living room.

6) Not properly caring for your furniture

Not taking care of your furniture can quickly lead to the downfall of your once beautiful living room. When properly taken care of, furniture can last much longer which eliminates the need of having to replace it as frequently.

What to do: Check out our last blog post for tips on how to properly care for your furniture to make it last longer.

7) Buying furniture that doesn’t fit

Furniture that fits

It’s easy to underestimate the size of furniture when you’re in a large showroom and buy something that’s way too big for your own home.

What to do: Use our Room Planner to enter your room dimensions and find out exactly how furniture would fit into your living room before you take it home.

8) Trying to float rugs

Floating rugUsing a rug in the middle of your living room with no furniture resting on it can cause the room to appear disproportional.

What to do: Measure your room and buy a rug large enough that all of the front feet of your furniture will be resting on top of it. If you are still struggling to decide on what rug to get, then it might be a good idea to check out something like Bazaar Velvet to give you a bit more inspiration on the type of rug you should get for your room.

9) Leaving clutter out in the open

This is a surefire way to make a perfectly good living room feel unorganized and messy.

What to do: Buy furniture that have storage options such as a storage ottoman or coffee table to quickly get rid of your living room clutter.

10) Not having proper lighting

Lighting

Lighting is an easy way to set the ambiance in your living room. Not having enough lighting can make a room dark and uninviting. Considering you can buy floor lamps here, for example, there shouldn’t be any excuses when it comes to investing in proper lighting for the home.

What to do: Properly use the 3 types of lighting: ambient lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting. Ambient lighting is the overhead lighting that provides illumination to the entire room. Task lighting directs light to specific areas, such as lamps. Accent lighting provides drama and contrast in your room. If you wanted to keep the cost of these lights down, it might be a good idea to consider changing home energy providers. I hear Money Expert has a fantastic price comparison service worth checking out.

How To Make Your Furniture Last Longer

Furniture is an important part of our everyday lives. When taken care of, the life span of furniture can be extended much longer. Although accidents are inevitable, there are ways to keep your furniture looking as good as the day you brought it home from the store. After you’ve spent a lot of money on your favourite new furniture item from a store like furniture in fashion, you want to make it last as long as possible! Taking care of the furniture you currently own can save you money instead of having to always buy something new.

1) Keep furniture out of the sun

couch in sun

Direct sunlight can fade and cause different materials to rip and crack over time. It’s best to place your furniture a few feet away from open windows where direct sunlight won’t directly hit it. Another option is to get protective covering to drape over your furniture, if necessary. Being in the sun for an extended amount of time can distort the original color in your furniture.

2) Furniture can’t withstand extreme heat or cold

Some materials are sensitive to temperature and humidity. It’s best to store your furniture in a neutral temperature room where it won’t be exposed to extreme heat or cold. Try to place your furniture away from vents that would cause extreme temperature changes.

3) Be careful to use the correct cleaning solutions

harmful cleaning agents

Using the wrong cleaning solution for a certain type of material can cause permanent damage. Most furniture comes a specific cleaning code that will recommend what type of product you should use on the specific material.

How to care for your specific type of furniture:

Upholstery

Upholstery

Upholstered furniture comes in hundreds of varieties and each type of fabric may have its own specific method of care. In addition to reading about your furniture’s cleaning code to better understand how to clean your fabric, these general tips are helpful for any and all kinds of upholstered furniture.

  • Rotate seat and back cushions if possible to keep one spot in a cushion becoming worn.
  • Regularly vacuum with an attachment to rid your upholstery of dirt and dust to extend the life of your furniture.
  • Clean stains immediately before they have a chance to seep deeper into the fabric.

Although it can be scary to think about stains and dirt that light colored upholstery can attract, there are ways to combat everyday wear and tear. Stains can be a real nuisance to many products within our homes, including carpets. Thankfully though, there are many homemade stain removal formulas that can be used to help get rid of these stains. At The Great American Home Store, we offer many family friendly fabrics that are perfect for homes with kids and pets. These fabrics make it easier than ever to remove stains with a simple mixture of soap and water. Ask for furniture with Revolution or iClean fabrics when visiting the store.

Wood

Wood
When properly taken care of, wood furniture can last for generations.

  • Wood contains moisture which can be dried out by leaving the furniture in the sun or in a warm setting for too long. Sunlight can also fade the coloration of your wooden furniture.
  • Place wooden items away from AC/heating vents to prevent loss of moisture.
  • Use a damp cloth to dust wood furniture instead of a duster since the duster can leave small marks.
  • Use household items such as olive oil, vinegar to remove scratches and scuffs.
  • Always make sure to use coasters and place mats on your wooden furniture to protect it from extreme temperatures that can cause damage. Avoid putting hot or wet items directly on the furniture such as hot plates or glasses with ice. This can cause white heat stains or water marks on wood furniture.
  • Remember that antique furniture needs extra care to be taken of it. For antique items of furniture as well as wax supplies, visit antiquesworld.co.uk for beautifully restored, traditional, antique furniture.

Leather

Leather

Leather is a timeless material that is loved by many. With proper care, leather can stay in great shape for years.

  • Dust your leather once per week with a dry cloth to remove dust from the crevices. Dust particles can dull your furniture by scratching it over time. Use a damp cloth to clean the dirt that has accumulated on the leather.
  • Seemingly harmless cleaners such as oil and mild soap may stain and remove color from the leather.
  • Be careful not leave magazines or newspapers laying on your leather furniture as the ink may bleed onto the leather.
  • Avoid putting fabrics with heavy dyes on leather for extended periods.

Mattresses

Mattress
You spend a good portion of your life sleeping on your mattress, so it’s important to take care of it. Taking certain steps can extend the life of your mattress and keep it sanitary.

  • Buy a mattress protector to defend against dust, bacteria, pests and moisture that would get into your mattress if it wasn’t properly covered with a good mattress protector. Over time these things will build up and shorten the life span of your mattress. A mattress protector will extend the life of your mattress for a small investment that will save you money in the long run.
  • Regularly wash your linens and sheets.
  • Avoid standing or jumping on your mattress as this causes the materials in it to be put under undue stress that will break them down much more quickly.
  • Rotate your mattress at least twice a year to avoid body impressions and degradation of the materials that will lead to decreased support and ultimately having to replace your mattress much sooner.

Recliners and More – 8 Unique Reasons to Love La Z Boy

La Z Boy has been a household brand in America for almost a century. The brand is known for its recliners and people often visit La Z Boy first when they’re looking for the best recliners for their home. However, La Z Boy offers more than people think. Here’s a glimpse of the reasons we love La Z Boy Furniture and think you should too:

 

1) Hundreds of customization options.

La Z Boy Custom Sofa and Love SeatYou’ll never have to worry about finding the right look to fit in your space. La Z Boy offers over 900 types of fabrics and leathers that fit your unique style and family’s specific needs.

3) Made in the USA.

La Z Boy Recliners Being Manufactured in the USLa Z Boy is one of the few American furniture brands that decided to remain on local soil during the recession. The company has five manufacturing plants across the USA that employ thousands of people to ensure top quality products. Because of this, getting repairs and replacement parts for your La Z Boy furniture is much quicker and easier than with many other brands that rely on foreign manufacturing.

 

4) Trustworthy brand.

1969 Photo of La Z Boy Reclining Love SeatLa Z Boy recently celebrated their 90 year anniversary. The brand invented the first mechanical rocking chair in 1928 by creating a chair that had the same features as the recliners they make today. Since then, the brand has continuously improved the features that they offer by innovative updates that build off of the original characteristics that they are known for.

 

5) More than recliners.

La Z boy is a brand that most people know for the quality of their recliners. What many don’t know is that they offer a full range of living room furniture. Inside the La Z Boy Comfort Studio at Great American Home Store, you can try out dozens of couches, love seats, and sleeper sofas. Each one features the special qualities that generations of families have loved about La Z Boy, all available with a plethora of options. The Great American Home Store is proud to serve the mid-south as the largest authorized La Z Boy dealer in the area.

All fabrics are tested for durability, giving you peace of mind that your product will withstand everyday wear and tear.

 

7) Let the kids and pets on the sofa.

La Z Boy Stain Resistant Fabric is Pet and Kid FriendlyWith La Z Boy’s iClean Technology, stains are a thing of the past. Spills and messes can be easily removed with water and a cloth or towel. Their website offers specific pattern properties and cleaning tips for care after purchase. So go ahead go for that chic white sofa look that you’ve been wanting!

The Anatomy of a Knockout Living Room

When you see it, you know.

The Anatomy of a Knockout Living Room

So, you’ve just bought a new property using a short term loan used to ‘bridge the gap’ and now you want to decorate it beautifully. Sometimes a well-designed living room will stop you in your tracks. It’s balanced, cohesive, not too loud, not too subdued… just right. But what makes it so great? A certain unattainable je ne sais quoi? Nope! Just some design know-how that we’re about to share with you.

The Anatomy of a Knockout Living Room

Here’s an example of a living room that has lots of functionality and personality. Now, let’s turn this image into a design roadmap you can reference whenever you need some layout inspiration!

The Anatomy of a Knockout Living RoomA) SIDE TABLES can be used to “bookend” your sofa/sectional (as shown above) or to simply provide more storage surface for your family. They’re especially great when guests come over if they’re seated someplace that’s out of reach from the coffee table.

B) Coordinating THROW PILLOWS in various sizes and shapes will make your sofa look cozy and put-together. If you’re having trouble figuring out what patterns and colors work as a group, we found an extremely helpful guide. (Thanks for demystifying the process, Shannon!)

C) If you already have a lot of patterns and visual interest in your room, go simpler with your RUG (and vice versa). Check out sites like http://bazaarvelvet.com/rug-collections/ for more inspiration. Another way to add texture is to layer two rugs like the example above. Need help with rug sizing and placement? Fixer Upper‘s Joanna Gaines created this handy guide.

D) A COFFEE TABLE or large ottoman will help anchor the space and be a perfect spot for decor, food and drink, or to put your feet up after a long day. Try a more unexpected piece like the leather-topped coffee table above, or a vintage trunk with hidden storage.

E) A great way to keep your living room as versatile as possible is to go for a neutral color on bigger purchases like your SOFA or SECTIONAL. Then you can switch out decor and accessories as the seasons change without worrying about the larger pieces clashing.

F) ACCENT CHAIRS provide additional seating and can tie in with colors you’ve used elsewhere in your room. We love the simple plaid pattern in the example above.

G) MIRRORS have a knack for making a room look larger. They also look beautiful and reflect light throughout the space. What’s not to love?

H) Flowy CURTAINS that provide privacy but still let in natural light will make your living room look magazine-worthy.

I) The sun can’t do all the work, so make sure to include some pretty LAMPS and overhead lighting to pick up the slack.

J) A good ACCENT WALL can tie a whole room together. We love the distressed, rustic look above, but there are lots of other directions to go: Shiplap, brick, stone, paint, patterned wallpaper, etc.

K) PLANTS, real or faux, add a sense of life to a space. In rooms with subdued color palettes, that pop of greenery makes a world of difference.

L) All those walls can seem bare without some ARTWORK to adorn them! Whether you opt for black and white like the above example or choose vibrant color, experiment with placement until you find an arrangement you love. You could also go to some acrylic prints experts to get some personalized photo prints to add some heart to the room.

M) Your WALL COLOR sets the tone for the rest of the room’s design. Lighter colors tend to make a room look bigger and more open, and darker colors make it feel more cozy. In our example, the dark main wall color and light accent wall give us the best of both worlds!

N) Matching METALLIC ELEMENTS throughout the room can make your design extra luxe. In the example, you can spot several gold accents.

O) OPEN SHELVING will provide additional storage and give you more space to display your treasures. Here’s a wonderful guide on how to style open shelves and vignettes throughout your home. (Thanks for all the helpful tips, Lauren!)

So many of us have loved watching Rachael Ray over the years on Food Network shows like 30 Minute Meals, $40 a Day, Tasty Travels, Inside Dish, and more. She has her own daytime talk show, cookware line, pet food company, cookbooks… the list goes on. But now, Rachael can add “furniture designer” to her lengthy resume.

There’s a feeling that happens when family and friends gather around a table to share a meal and conversation, and Rachael Ray Home brings this warmth and joy to every room.

Her line is divided into 3 collections: Highline, Soho, and Upstate – the subject of today’s post. (Upholstered pieces will be featured separately.)

Upstate is a collection of curated, Americana-styled furnishings that reflect Rachael’s relaxed and casual home in Upstate, NY. The warm, rustic conciare cherry finish with distressing evokes a comfortable vibe with a hint of tradition. Custom pewter-finished hardware and accents complete each piece, and select items are available in a bianco white painted finish and nero black finish (both with slight distressing).

Rachael Ray Home is now on the showroom floor at both our Memphis and Southaven locations! If the piece you’re interested in doesn’t have an “Add to Cart” button, that means it’s not currently available to be purchased online, BUT you can visit one of our Home Stores to order it. (And that goes for anything in the entire catalog. If you want it, we can order it for you!)

New from Magnolia Home: Modern Collection

Ready for more Magnolia Home by Joanna Gaines? So are we! The much-loved furniture line has released a new Modern collection, and we wanted to make sure our blog readers are in the loop. (We don’t currently have these items in stock at our stores, but we’d be happy to order them for you! Just contact us.)

Traditional Collection Pinterest Graphic (3)

Modern style is linear and bold. It’s a minimalist approach to elegant sophistication with focused purpose. These straightforward, sleek designs have an enduring look that will stay as relevant tomorrow as it is today. Clean lines, geometric shapes, and unique material combinations all translate into eclectic statement pieces that blend seamlessly with other styles.

We’ve listed the pieces we know for sure will be in the line, but more colors and styles may be introduced later. We’ll keep you posted!

Magnolia Home Modern Captain Arm Chair

This hybrid Captain Arm Chair not only looks great, but sits comfortably. Its “old courthouse chair” profile has been slimmed down for a Mid Century retro look, and also features a sleek Carbon finish and metal ferules on slim tapered legs.

Magnolia Home Modern Tuxedo Side Chair

Inspired by Mid Century designs, Joanna’s Modern Tuxedo Tail Chair has a narrow slat back that extends below the seat. Finished in Chimney black, it’s a versatile piece that goes with most any decor style.

Magnolia Home Modern Proximity Upholstered Chair

Wing chairs are timeless and can work in a dining setting or all around the house. Joanna’s Modern Upholstered Chair is a hybrid of this classic chair profile refreshed with clean modern lines. The base has a Carbon black finish with upholstery in a dark grey Chalkboard color.

Magnolia Home Modern Proximity Mirror

This Proximity Mirror has an outer wooden frame in a Carbon black finish surrounding the floating Brushed Brass metal frame. Use it over the Proximity Dresser/Server or hang it on the wall as a standalone decorative statement.

Magnolia Home Modern Proximity Man's Chest

Inspired by a wall of custom-built cabinets in Joanna’s office, this Modern Proximity Man’s Chest has a two-tone color combo of Carbon on the case frame and drawer fronts in Bench finish. Use this eclectic piece wherever convenient storage is needed.

Magnolia Home Modern Proximity End Table

This sleek Proximity End Table has an open profile featuring a Brushed Brass metal base and drawer in Carbon black. You can use it by the bedside or as a side table in the living area.

Magnolia Home Modern Proximity Dresser or Server

Inspired by a wall of custom-built cabinets in Joanna’s office, this Modern Proximity Dresser/Server has panel and frame doors flanking a center row of three pullout drawer trays. Pair it with our Modern Mirror and use this eclectic piece wherever convenient storage is needed.

Magnolia Home Modern Proximity Dining Table

This striking Proximity Dining Table is a hybrid piece with its rustic Bench-finish plank top and a sleek ancient Roman “curule” base in Carbon and Brushed Brass. Available in 6′ and 7′ lengths.

Magnolia Home Modern Proximity Deck & Hutch

This Hutch has great open storage with its Brushed Brass frame and three wooden shelves to show off decorative treasures. Joanna designed the lower Modern Buffet to work alone for drawer storage, or together with the Hutch for added display space.

Magnolia Home Modern Profile Upholstered Bed

This Modern Profile Upholstered Bed is one of Jo’s favorites with its tapered wings and tall shelter profile. Its clean versatile shape and Chalkboard grey fabric lets this bed blend in easily with all styles.

Magnolia Home Modern Linear Upholstered Bench

Joanna likes to use functional benches all throughout the home, and this Modern Upholstered Bench has a comfortable button-tufted top with a sleek Brushed Brass metal base. The fabric is available in Emerald and Fog colors.

Magnolia Home Modern Linear Console Table

The lean, modern silhouette of Joanna’s Linear Console Table makes it the perfect accent piece for eclectic spaces. With its Bench-finished wood top and slender Brushed Brass metal base, it can be used in any room of your home.
