Energy Smart Style

   How can you save money on utility bills, conserve natural resources, and lessen fading of flooring, furniture, and artwork all at the same time? The answer is simple, invest in quality window treatments. Hunter Douglas provides everything you need to make your windows a beautiful expression of the way you live.       Did you know up to 50% of your home’s heat can be lost through its windows in the winter months and that roughly 40% of a homes unwanted summer heat comes in through its windows?

They will make a difference, in your comfort, your heating and cooling bills and, because you’ll use less energy, the environment.      UV exposure is not only harmful to skin, it can also damage furniture, flooring, and artwork.

Why We Love Dash & Albert

Why We Love Dash & Albert

Most of the rugs in the new Bunny Williams for Dash & Albert collection are made of PET, a non-chemically-treated, recycled polyester that’s earth-friendly as it is gorgeous. Like woven wools, they have a similar tight weave and low profile, without the stiffness that characterizes so many synthetic rugs. This makes them perfect for high-traffic areas indoors and out, and especially good in kids’ rooms, family rooms, and anywhere pets like to hang out. It’s also UV treated for fade resistance. The best part about this line? These rugs are super low-maintenance. Vacuum once or twice a week to keep them dirt-free, and if they’ve gotten the muddy paw print or spilled wine treatment, no problem. Just take the rugs outside (or in the bathtub/shower), scrub them with an eco-friendly soap and a soft brush, rinse clean with fresh water, and hang to dry.  Work with our one of our staff members to find the perfect rug for your home!   ...
11 Reasons to Choose Seaside Casual Outdoor Furniture

11 Reasons to Choose Seaside Casual Outdoor Furniture

Seaside Casual is one of our favorite outdoor furniture lines. Aside from being on sale, below are 11 reason why we love Seaside Casual. 1. Made in the USA 2. Maintenance Free – Keep your Seaside Casual out all year long, simply hose the furniture down each spring and your furniture will look just like it did when you bought it.  3. Envirowood – a 100% High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) lumber made from recycled plastic water bottles and containers. Envirowood is permeated with UV stabilized  pigments that are consistent throughout the entire piece. The result is a smoother, more durable finish that prevents chalking and resists fading of the surface.  4. Indoor Comfort – Our wood is milled and routered to simulate the look and feel often found in traditional wood furniture. Joints are secured with mortise and tenon joinery and edges and corners are milled on precise CNC machinery. 5. Stainless Fasteners – All stainless steel fasteners are not created equal. Seaside Casual uses marine grade stainless steel (316) to ensure superior protection when exposed to elements. 6. Solid as a Rock – Unlike sheet molded products, Seaside Casual frames are constructed with HDPE lumber components that are designed to withstand temperature and load changes. Structural aluminum is used to reinforce critical frame members in key locations. The result is a product that will not tip, topple, or turn over on your patio, lawn or deck. 7. Slats and Spaces – Appropriately  spaced slats are the difference between support and the feeling of “falling through” the seat or back of your chair. Seaside Casual has this perfected so you feel comfortable and secure. 8. It Only Has a Good...
