How can we help you?

  • These durable, yet elegant table linens have been specially coated to prevent stains from liquids such as wine and punch, making them perfect for every party. While our performance linens are machine washable, persistent stains may require dry cleaning.
  • Melamine is a hard plastic that consists of a combination of resin and strengthening materials. The end result is colorful, dishwasher-safe dinnerware that is difficult to break or scratch - making it perfect for outdoor dinner parties and worry-free entertaining in any setting.
  • An aerator is a device that enables oxygen to infuse with your wine, creating an expanded bouquet and a smoother flavor, and generally enhancing the wine’s overall character. The more concentrated and dense a wine is, the more it will benefit from this process.
  • A charger is a large, decorative plate on top of which other dinnerware is placed. Chargers are meant to remain on the table throughout the meal, however they are typically removed after the main course and before dessert. Placemats are typically made of fabric or other material and are designed to be placed underneath a place setting at the dinner table for decorative purposes and for added stain protection. Chargers can be used with or without placemats.
  • First you should determine how far you want your tablecloth to drop from the edge of the table. We recommend at least 8 to 10 inches drop for more casual events, and up to 15 inches for formal dinner parties. For rectangular tables, simply multiply your desired drop by two (for example, 10 inches of drop x 2 = 20) and add that number to both the width and the height dimensions of your table. This is the size of tablecloth that you need. For a round table, multiply the desired drop by two as before, but then add that number to the table’s overall diameter. If you don’t find the exact size you need, simply order the next largest size.
  • Polyester. The fibers don’t break down as readily as natural fibers, and the material is better suited to resist wear and tear.
  • Either an indoor/outdoor rug or a performance rug. Both are very durable and easy to keep clean.
  • A statement rug is nice when the other elements in your room are more neutral. If you have a beige sofa and gray walls, a statement rug can really shine. If you have a lot going on decor-wise – color, pattern and texture – then a neutral rug can help ground the room.
  • We carry a variety of rug pads to suit any type of surface, whether indoors or out. And yes, you definitely need them! A rug without a rug pad can be a safety issue, especially on wood or tile floors. If the rug moves or flips up it could cause someone to trip or slip, and a rug pad helps prevent this from happening. Rug pads also offer plenty of other benefits as well, such as protecting your floors from wear and tear, offering a little extra cushioning and prolonging the life of your rug.
  • Indoor/outdoor rugs or performance rugs are great for kitchens due to how easy they are to clean. We also offer kitchen mats with memory foam that feature unmatched cushioning and support if you are spending a lot of time on your feet cooking.
  • Your door mat should match the width of the door or be slightly smaller. Choosing the wrong size can throw off the eye, making your door look small or your mat look out of place. Start by measuring your door; the size of a standard single door perfectly fits our small mat measuring 30" x 48". For a double door, opt for our large mat measuring 36" x 72". To learn more about door mats, read this blog.
  • While the exact number will depend on the size of your sofa or chair, the general rule of thumb is to use an odd number of pillows whenever possible. For instance, you could place a single eye-catching lumbar pillow in the center of a sofa, and then add a pillow on each end for a smaller sofa or two on each end for a longer sofa. Whether the pillows are all the same size and shape are up to you – don’t be afraid to experiment!
  • Start with the primary print, and then use that as your inspiration for everything to follow. Pull a color tone from the main fabric, and accentuate that on a smaller scale with stripes, mini geometrics and other patterns. Never mix patterns of the same size. For more tips, check out this blog.
  • For a front door, the best way to hang a wreath is with an over-the-door wreath hook. We offer a variety of hook options for every type of door. To hang a lighter weight wreath over a mantel, you can use self-adhesive hooks (available at most home improvement stores) that are rated strong enough to hold the weight of your wreath. However, a heavier wreath may require a nail or molly bolt to be driven into the wall. You can also use self-adhesive hooks to hang a wreath over a mirror to create a dramatic presentation.
  • For a standard 36"-wide front door, we suggest a 24" diameter wreath. We also offer larger wreaths for oversized doors, as well as magnetic hooks and over-the-door wreath hangers that make hanging your wreath a breeze.
