5 Things You Should Know Before Purchasing A Reclaimed Wood Table.

5 Things You Should Know Before Purchasing A Reclaimed Wood Table.

Reclaimed wood tables are a Country Willow specialty, and because we have built more than 4,000 of them since 1996 we consider ourselves experts on the topic. We also have thousands of customers who have shared their own experiences with us, which has contributed to our knowledge in this area. In the past, we have purchased imported reclaimed wood tables to see if they were something we would want to provide, and through this process we have uncovered many of the issues and problems that are discussed below. So for quality and safety, we continue to build our own reclaimed wood tables to provide the best and most reliable product to everyone. They are 100% American made, extremely durable, family friendly, and hand crafted with the utmost care.

Prints & Texture: Ideas for Summer Decorating with Fabrics

Prints & Texture: Ideas for Summer Decorating with Fabrics

Fabrics provide texture in many forms from color and pattern to how they feel when we touch them. They are also one of the best ways to either quickly update your décor or give your space a whole new look. Add some bright new accent pillows to the sofa or go all out with an upholstered lounge chair in a print you’ve always loved. If you’re worried about having fabrics that might stain easily in high-traffic areas, consider a performance grade fabric for pieces that take a lot of abuse. These are family-friendly versions of your favorites that clean easily while having the texture of the linens and cottons that you want in your home. Sunbrella, for example, is an amazing option that withstands many of life’s challenges.

Swivel Chairs: 6 Styles That We Love For Spring

Swivel Chairs: 6 Styles That We Love For Spring

SWIVEL CHAIR
[swiv-uhl chair] n. 1. A chair that swivels horizontally on its base.

Who doesn’t love a swivel chair? They rock and spin, and some of them roll. They are comfortable, social, and can face the TV, fireplace, or your friends on the sofa in seconds. They grow with your family, easily transitioning from the nursery to the living room. A swivel chair is a great option for multi-use spaces, and a functional addition to any room that calls for an accent chair. They come in every size and style you can imagine, and we love them just as much upholstered as we do in leather and a slipcover. This modern classic isn’t your grandmother’s swivel! Here are some of our favorites you can find at Country Willow this spring:
