Lighting. Though it often can be overlooked, lighting is a key element of a porch, particularly if you like to sit and read in the evening.  Lighting helps create a warm ambiance in any space and there are several ways to add light to your outdoor space.    Get creative with your lighting, if you already have a chandelier or sconces add some candles (we even have flame-less candles) or lanterns to give your outdoor space a room-like feel.  3. An Outdoor Rug.  Make your porch feel like a room with an outdoor rug. A patterned rug layered on the floor helps unify the furnishings and color scheme, while adding a layer of texture and warmth to the space.  We have a great selection of outdoor rugs that will hold up to the outdoor elements without a problem – fade resistant, easy to clean, and great styles and colors.

Tablecloth Size Guide

Tablecloth Size Guide

Finding the right size tablecloth can be overwhelming so here are some general tips to help you find the right size for your table.  For formal dining we suggest a tablecloth that hangs 8″ to 12″ on all sides. For a more dramatic look try a tablecloth that hangs 30″ on all sides. This will create a puddle effect and is great for lavish celebrations. To determine the size you need, measure the length and width (or diameter if you have a round table) and add twice the desired drop to each figure.        **Don’t forget about table leaves if you have them.** Below is a chart to help you with finding the right size tablecloth for you....

12 Things To Know About Juliska Tableware

12 Things To Know About Juliska Tableware. Life’s best memories are made when family and friends gather around a table. It’s a tradition that dates back thousands of years, one that helps us remember to appreciate some of the little things that make life beautiful: family, friends, & food (and wine)! Below are 12 things we think you should know about Juliska tableware. Juliska was founded in 2001 by an (English) husband & (French) wife team: Capucine and David Gooding. While in visiting Paris, the Goodings stumbled upon 40 Bohemian glasses from 17th century Europe which inspired them to start their business. The company started with a line of blown glass drinking vessels from the Czech Republic. Over 85% of Juliska’s designs are produced in Northern Portugal, or around the city of Prague in the Czech Republic. With over 150 new product launches a year, Juliska is a “design-led” company.  Juliska’s stoneware is guaranteed to withstand the thermal shock of being transferred from a freezer to a 500 degree oven – it’s tough! They have a full time ceramic technology & modelling team in Portugal making their original designs. The name “Juliska” is of Hungarian origin. Juliska is an actual person the Gooding’s met during their travels throughout Europe, she is a woman of great style, taste and warmth; she is their muse. Their quality control personnel discards 15% – 20% of the production to maintain their high standards. All of Juliska’s glass drinkware is dishwasher safe, even the Czech Bohemian glass! Juliska normally has 95% of their products in stock in their Connecticut warehouse, which means orders usually ship out immediately....
