                    [post_content] => Seeing loved ones at Thanksgiving has always been as expected as getting cranberry sauce with your turkey. This year, many will forego making their regular journeys or entertaining guests due to travel restrictions, health issues or just a wish to take precautions. You don't need us to let you know that Thanksgiving has never looked quite like this.

Treating yourself to a lovely day seems the only solution if you are to be alone. Teach yourself to make your grandmother's oyster stuffing. Go out in nature and gather pinecones. berries, boughs or seashells for your table. Get out your favorite china and table linens - don't leave them in the hutch just because there won't be a crowd. 

Bringing nature into your home and cherishing the things that bring you comfort seem to be the only antidotes to the feeling of loss this holiday (besides a FaceTime session). We here at Cottage Home Furniture wish you a safe, creative and content holiday. 

Don't forget to tell us about how you spent your amended day and please follow us on Facebook.

                    [post_content] => Choosing a farmhouse table for your home can feel as momentous and personal as picking out a piece of art or even your wedding outfit. Aside from the creative choices involved, such as picking paint or stain colors, there are some basic practical considerations for everyday functionality.

1. What size farmhouse table do I need?

The ideal dining table size for you depends upon the number of people you seat most days, as well as the size of your room or dining area. This chart shows recommended table sizes based upon number of people for both round tables and rectangular tables with a width of 36”- 42”.
# of people Seats comfortably Workable size
4 4' rect / 48" round  42" round
6 6' rect / 60" round 5' rect / 54" round
8 8' rect / 72" round 7' rect / 66" round
10 10' rect 9' rect
Extensions   Extensions? If you entertain often, company board extensions are available for most of our farmhouse tables. They slide into the ends of the table to maintain the look of the long planks used in traditional farmhouse tables and to avoid a split in the center. A pair of extensions increases the size of your dining table by 3 feet - space for four more guests. Adequate clearance? Allow a clearance of 36”around your table for walking and pulling out chairs (the minimum without feeling too tight is 27”). Make sure that your dining chairs or benches will fit comfortably around your new table, allowing 2-6” between chairs. If you have a banquette, also consider either a trestle or pedestal base for your table to avoid interference with a table leg. For additional information, please see our Dining Table Seating Guide.

2. What kind of wood should I choose for the top of my farmhouse table?

Selecting a type of wood for your farmhouse table involves striking a balance between appearance, durability and cost. Appearance For a farmhouse table with individual character, reclaimed wood such as pine and oak is a popular choice. Other woods, such as maple or new pine, will give your table a classic farmhouse look without rustic details like distressing. Wood with beautiful graining, such as oak, should be shown off with a stained or waxed finish. If you prefer your table painted, choose a wood with fewer knots (like poplar or maple) for no show-through. Durability If you are concerned with keeping the everyday wear of your table to a minimum, consider the hardness of the wood you choose.  Softer woods, such as new pine or poplar, can be more susceptible to dings. Here is a rough guide to the hardness of different woods by density:

New Pine                      Poplar     Old Pine                                Maple                                                              Oak

Soft ---------------------------------------------- Medium ------------------------------------------ Hard

 350  400  450  500  550  600  650  700  750  800  850  900  950 1000 1050 1100 1150 1200 1250 1300

  Cost For farmhouse tables, the harder the wood, the higher the cost. Pine and poplar are the least expensive woods while oak costs considerably more. Reclaimed (old) wood tables, which are more durable than those made from new pine, are also less expensive than hardwood tables. Based upon our 17 years of experience designing custom farmhouse tables, the most popular wood choices remain pine, old (reclaimed) pine and maple.  

3. What is the most durable finish for the top of my farmhouse table?

A clear top coat over either a stained or painted finish is the most durable surface for a farmhouse table top. Remember that any major surface damage to this finish may require professional repair – or just leave the marks to increase the character of the table top. Whatever finish you choose for your farmhouse table, we recommend using place mats, coasters and hot pads to keep it free of water rings or burn marks.  

4. How do I care for my farmhouse table?

The top of your farmhouse table is easy to maintain – clean with a damp sponge and dry with a clean, soft cloth. DO NOT USE CLEANERS OR SOLVENTS (Pledge, 409, nail polish removers, etc). For small dings or scratches on painted surfaces, touch up paint (not stain) is available from us. A stain from your local hardware store in a similar color to your table finish can fix minor dings or scratches on stained tables, but major repairs or refinishing should be left to a professional. Only apply wax touch-ups (we can provide brand information) if you have a table with a waxed finish and want to freshen the look periodically. Do not sand before applying wax, then let dry and then buff off with clean, dry, soft cloth.

Full Sail II Canvas Giclee | Sunset Canvas Giclee | Wheelhouse Mirror | Jasper Woven Jute/Wool Rug | Large Orleans Arm Chair | Shorehaven Round Dining Table

Mixing the colors of the earth and sea can instantly lend a comforting richness to any room. For this coastal dining room, we picked honeyed wood furniture, nautical wall art in bright azure, gold and rust, and an area rug in ochre, rusty orange and bluish gray. Pairing clear blues with burnt earth tones creates a perfect backdrop for the seasonal segue from summer to autumn. Bringing it all together is the Jasper Woven Jute/Wool Rug, in a melange of fall colors and yarns of various thicknesses. The distinctively European Large Orleans Arm Chair comes in 80 standard paint colors and 12 stains, with options for the customizing the wood, seat and finish. We think these look nice with the silhouette of the Shorehaven Round Dining Table, with its curved legs and arched crossbar. Shown in burnt caramel, this customizable table is available in 7 standard stains and 19 paint colors. Apt accompaniments to this earthy trio are the Wheelhouse Mirror, a metal piece in an aged copper finish with beveled mirror, as well as the wall art. Both giclees come in 5 different sizes and are done in a knife-gel finish for an authentic, textured look.

Rooms to Love: Coastal Style Dining Room #coastalstyle #cottagestyle #coastaldecor #cottagedecor #coastalstylefurniture #cottagestylefurniture #beachhousedecor #beachhouse #beachhousestyle cottagehomefurniture.comImage: Domaine Home

Casual, fresh, bright and airy are just some of the ways to describe this amazing coastal style dining room.  The hardwood floors and trestle dining table boast finishes that are reminiscent of driftwood for that washed and rustic coastal style look we love!  Driftwood finishes come in a variety of styles, but most have varying hues of natural wood, gray, and white for a true seashore look and feel.  Another distinct accent in this dining room are the parson's chairs, which are slipcovered in a beautiful cream and white striped linen fabric that drapes the chairs so beautifully.  The casual style of the chairs help to create a relaxed and lived-in look that warmly welcomes family and friends for long summer meals.

Are you as curious about the view from the patio as we are?

Here are a few hints to help you choose the perfect chandelier:

Size

  • If you are hanging a chandelier in the center of a room, like the entryway or foyer, the best way to determine size is to add the length of the room and the width together, change that number into inches, and that gives you the maximum diameter for your chandelier.
  • For example, if your space is 10' long by 16' wide, add those together for 26', and change that to inches - that gives you a maximum diameter chandelier of 26".

  • To determine the best size chandelier to place above your dining table, take the width of your table and subtract 12" - that gives you the maximum width for your chandelier.
  • For example, if your table is 72" long x 40" wide, subtracting 12" from 40" gives you a maximum width of 28" for your chandelier.

Hanging

  • If the chandelier is suspended in the center of a room, like the foyer or living room, than you want the base of your chandelier to be no less than 7 feet from the floor.  This allows ample height for walking without interfering with head room.

  • If the chandelier is suspended over a dining table or kitchen island, than you want to allow 30" - 36" from the surface of the table to the base of the chandelier.  This allows ample room to see across the table without your line of vision being interrupted by the lighting fixture.
