As the song goes, “There’s no place like home for the holidays.” Yet just as your taste in music may favor the original Perry Como tune or the countrified Garth Brooks ditty, everyone can have a different view of what a comfortable home looks like. While styles may vary, there are certain key pieces that every elf should have for holiday guests. Here are our necessities:
Gracious dining tables
The holidays are all about gathering around bountiful family meals. Make sure there’s room for everyone at the table by choosing one with leaves. One elegant option is the Hooker Furniture Corsica Dark Rectangle Pedestal Dining Table. This graceful 78” acacia double pedestal table features two 20” leaves. Pair it with traditional upholstered chairs for a classic look or clean-lined choices for a modern twist.
What’s better than unwinding with some classic holiday films when family is back home? Make sure your entertainment options are up to the challenge with a piece like the Ocean Club Point Break Entertainment Chest from Tommy Bahama Home. Open shelves display holiday heirlooms while drawers keep that vintage DVD collection out of sight.
Create the perfect lounge area for guests with the Eaton Sectional. This flexible piece can be ordered with an armless loveseat, chaise, armless and corner chairs, and armless and corner sofa sections. We love it as configured on our website to encourage multiple conversations. Order it in a richly textured fabric for festive appeal.
After a long day of holiday shopping, unwind with an adult beverage of your choice. What better place for your bartender to serve up libations than the Domaine Blanc Entertainment Console from Bernhardt? Crafted of white oak and trimmed with a decorative stainless steel grille overlay in Tarnished Nickel finish, it’s the perfect foil for shimmery holiday décor.
Dashing into Dreamland
Of course, you’ll need a place for guests to sleep, and what better choice than a sleigh bed? We think Mrs. Claus would love Thomasville’s 455 Peninsula Bed. It boasts a classically modern look inspired by the refined, streamlined forms of 1940s French Art Moderne and then updated with rounded fronts and edges.
So whether you’ve been just a bit naughty or wonderfully nice, you can reserve a prime spot on your guests’ good list with the right pieces to make them feel at home.
