How to Upgrade Your Kitchen Without Spending a Dime

    Published By: Leon Tuberman  -  Friday, January 12, 2018

    It’s easy to get caught up in the expensive aspects of home decorating. From endless TV shows to magazines and websites, the flood of information encouraging you to buy things to make your home better abound. However, if you have found that your dime doesn’t stretch very far, or you’ve rubbed two pennies together and still don’t have enough dough to re-do your kitchen, these FREE tips can make any space look brand new.

    Scour the Fridge & Take a Walk in the Yard

    One of the most noticeable accessories you find in beautiful rooms is an elaborate centerpiece or gorgeous fresh flowers. If you don’t have the money to spend for fresh flowers or a centerpiece look to the fridge and your yard for alternatives.

    Your fridge can offer a plethora of fresh fruit options to make a unique and bold statement. A bowl of bright green pears or lemons can freshen up any space. Your backyard (even if it isn’t abloom with gorgeous stems) can still offer some large sticks for arrangement in an oversized hurricane. Even some simple roses, daisies or greenery can add the perfect touch to your breakfast bar.

    Clean Up After Yourself

    While staying organized may not cost you anything, it does take concerted effort and a little time. A clean and tidy home is one that seems more open, more inviting, and better taken care of. This principle goes double for the kitchen. Cluttered countertops make your kitchen’s usable space feel cramped, and disorganized cupboards and pantries make for a frustrating process come dinnertime.

    The easiest way to make sure everything stays in its place is to create prep stations on your counter space. Keep all the sharp knives next to the cutting boards for easy access, and stack the plates next to the stove for dishing and serving. Make sure that you keep any unnecessary clutter like junk mail and odds-and-ends in your office space. If it has no use in the kitchen it shouldn’t be there!

    Get Crafty With Labels

    If you like the look of books on your countertop or need to have certain boxes or bins out at all times, then consider adding labels in a creative and cohesive way. Cover boxes in light butcher paper and stencil the titles on the side. If the titles bore you, then get creative and use simple stencils to create your own titles.

    Play with words and phrases like meats, nibbles, sweet tooth guide, or soup-sensational. These small and free touches can make necessary kitchen clutter work well! Also, it can make people wonder where your inner Martha Stewart has been hiding all this time. 

    Repurpose with Passion

    Always, look for what you already have around your house before stepping out into the retail jungle. You may be surprised how a stray box of wine corks, that old glue gun from your jewelry making days, or that doily collection can come in handy. Search for unique ideas online and put some of your garage junk to much better use. 

    Family Style Decorating: 3 of the Easiest Ways to Make Your Home Kid-Chic

    Published By: Leon Tuberman  -  Thursday, January 11, 2018

    Let’s be honest, “clean” and “organized” aren’t the two words most commonly associated with a home where kids live. Even so, that doesn’t mean that any home filled with children can’t be comfortable as well as chic. As parents, we all know that the only way to keep our home tidy is to have simple solutions we can easily implement on a moment’s notice. Here are a few exceptional and simple ways to keep a home beautiful, yet beautifully apropos for family time.

    Be Choosy About Fabric Choices

    No matter whether you are purchasing couches, dining chairs or duvet covers, when it comes to furnishing a kid-friendly space you must choose durable, tough fabrics. For upholstery? The tougher the better. For high traffic pieces? Leather and faux fabrics like micro-suede clean the easiest.

    Entertain the idea of purchasing indoor-outdoor fabrics and furniture for even tougher resistance against spills. Also, stay away from light colored fabrics even if they are waterproofed or durable. Lighter colored furniture tends to show stains faster and requires more upkeep.

    Have a Place for Everything

    If you have a renovation on the horizon it is a great idea to include built-ins, extra storage, cubbies and ample drawer space into those plans. Having a spot for all things to be properly put away makes the job of cleaning messes easy and keeps your home looking flawless.

    If you aren’t planning on building any time soon or adding additional closet space, then invest in an armoire or a tall storage wall that can house stray toys and supplies. Educating your children about how to put their toys away after playing with them is an invaluable lesson for them to learn as well as a major asset to a clean home.

    Skip the Priceless Artifacts

    Children are hard on things. This is a fact that all parents come to realize at one point or another. That’s why it is a good idea to not invest in valuable collectibles. Artwork or sculptures that cost a fortune are not kid-friendly items, and instead will act like a magnet for mischief.

    However, that doesn’t mean you can’t have unique pieces in your home, just be sure to choose less expensive items that won’t be mourned if lost or broken. Searching flea markets for cheap yet unique items is a fun way to incorporate interest into your home without causing concerns about lost valuables.

    Ultimately, if you are the type of person who fawns over chic decorating magazines and wonders aloud why your home never looks so put together, then try some of these simple tips. Keeping things in order and looking fresh is all about having a plan. Choose furniture that fits your design style, but also fits the hectic cadence of your lifestyle.

    Having children doesn’t mean that your home will forever be a war zone of Nerf footballs and Barbie clothes, but you do want to make your home a place where your children have the freedom to be themselves and you have the organization you need to function. 

    Bathroom Renovation: Tips on How to Re-do a Bathtub Without Going Under

    Published By: Leon Tuberman  -  Wednesday, January 10, 2018

    Replacing a bathtub may seem like an easy endeavor. All you do is rip out the old tub, purchase a new one, and begin the bubble baths, right? Well, the truth is that picking out the right replacement tub may be a lot more difficult than simply purchasing one you like the looks of. From purpose to fit, choosing the right bathtub for a bathroom renovation can be the cornerstone that either makes or breaks your space. Here are a few questions to consider before diving into a new tub headfirst: 

    1. Are you a bath person?

    This may seem like a redundant question, but before you replace an old tub with a new one make sure that you really do want one. Bathtubs may not be the most practical of choices, unless you regularly like to soak or have a tyke that requires a bathtub. 

    If this isn’t the case it may make more sense to replace the tub with a walk-in shower and sitting bench. If you decide that you really do want a tub for the pure luxury of one, then keep on asking the right questions below. 

    1. Where do you want the tub?

    Depending on your budget, the most practical place for a new tub would be in the same place as the original one. Saving the plumbing costs by hooking up the new tub to the old plumbing is a smart move. 

    However, if you are really looking to completely renovate your bathroom and are knocking out a few walls, be sure you choose a place for the tub where it will remain a focal point but won’t be too far from the original plumbing. Like the hearth is the heart of the kitchen, the tub is the heart of the bathroom. 

    If you are reworking plumbing and fixtures, be sure you choose the right tub for your needs.  Not all tubs are created equal and you may want to keep the cost of the unit down, since the plumbing budget may be higher. 

    1. The Four T’s of Tubbing: Which best fits for you?

    There are four common tub types: 

    -Three-Wall Alcove Tub
    -A Corner Tub
    -A Drop-in Tub
    -A Freestanding Tub

    Three-Wall Alcove Tub: The most common of the four tub types, this is the bathtub that only has one finished side and can fit easily into any established shower/bath combination. If you do go the dual-purpose route of shower/tub, make sure that the surrounding walls are waterproofed. This is the most affordable option. 

    A Corner Tub: The corner tub is one that is triangular in shape and usually fits into the corner of a master bathroom suite. Depending on the size, these units can often fit two people and are designed to be an “indoor hot tub” of sorts with jets - Jacuzzi style. Medium price point.

    A Drop-in Tub: A drop-in tub can either be elevated or sunken into the floor. Constructed within a frame, it has the option of molded seats for comfort and oftentimes is on the higher end of customized tubs. Usually made of lightweight acrylic, in rare instances these can be made of a heavier material if you are looking to create a lagoon atmosphere with a deeper and larger frame in your space. 

    A Freestanding Tub: The famous claw-footed freestanding tub may be the most iconic example of bathing. Perfect for historic homes that want to stay true to the era or for those who love the look and feel of vintage bath time, this option is one of the most coveted as well as inconvenient styles. Since it can be more cumbersome to install and can be more pricey this tub requires special consideration and planning.

    Wood Vs. Vinyl: How to Choose the Right Blinds for Your Home

    Published By: Leon Tuberman  -  Tuesday, January 9, 2018

    If you’ve wanted to get your home outfitted with new blinds for any length of time, it’s no surprise if you have been struggling with choosing between vinyl and wood. Each has their advantages and disadvantages as well as a different appeal to specific buyers. Here is a simple pros and cons list that will help you decide which type of blinds best fits with your lifestyle and design style.

    Price Point

    Vinyl Con: Even though they are less expensive, vinyl just isn’t wood, and for some people that is reason enough to skip them.

    Vinyl Pro: A two-inch vinyl blind will always cost less than it’s wooden competition, and while some people balk at the quality of vinyl, they are very durable if you have young children. Furthermore, in most instances people won’t be able to tell the difference- especially if you choose a white finish.

    Wooden Con: Wooden blinds will always be more expensive than a comparable vinyl version.

    Wooden Pro: In some climates, wooden blinds last longer and are more resistant to weather changes and temperatures. Wooden blinds provide a classic look, and people are sometimes willing to pay more to get it.

    Color Choices

    Vinyl Con: You won’t be able to match your wooden floorboards or crown molding exactly.

    Vinyl Pro: You will have hundreds more colors to choose from if you go with a vinyl blind, making the matching process that much easier.

    Wooden Con: Wooden blinds offer a limited color selection.

    Wooden Pro: Even though you won’t have as much of a color selection it will be much easier to match a stain if you go with a wooden blind than with a vinyl. For homes that have a lot of wood accents, flooring or windowsills to match- wooden is a better choice aesthetically.

    Climate Control

    Vinyl Con: They can melt when subjected to high temperatures- such as over a stove.

    Vinyl Pro: They are the perfect choice for bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms where the humidity level may be higher than other parts of the house. Vinyl has an ability to wick away moisture without warping over time. When you are deciding to install blinds in a room that is constantly changing temperatures and humidity a vinyl blind is your best and only recommended choice.

    Wooden Con: Window treatment specialists will tell you to never install wooden blinds in rooms with high humidity or moisture, so they are a poor choice for bathrooms and sunrooms.

    Wooden Pro: Wooden blinds are the perfect choice for bedrooms and attics, because they keep rooms cooler than vinyl. Better at blocking out rays, a wooden blackout shade can keep a room much cooler and more inviting than a vinyl blind can.

    The conclusion reached in this debate is simple, you may need a combination of both vinyl and wooden blinds in your home to meet all of your needs. Where wooden blinds may seem to be of higher quality, they are less affordable and can’t accommodate your more humid rooms. Vinyl blinds are more affordable, but may not last as long or give you that high-end look you desire.

    Above all, visit your local window treatment store and take some time to look at their options. You may be surprised at how quickly your mind is made up after seeing both of these materials in person.

    The Top 5 Most Important Upgrades You Will Make In Your Home

    Published By: Leon Tuberman  -  Monday, January 8, 2018

    These days, flipping houses is no longer a lucrative investment. Instead, it seems the new trend is to live in your home for a while and make upgrades to your existing floor plan gradually. This is a much more wallet-friendly approach to renovation and one that allows the home owner to enjoy upgrades before the house hits the market again.

    The biggest question for existing homeowners regarding renovation, is which ones yield a higher return? While it all depends on what your home needs, its location, and what down-the-line potential buyers may be looking for- there are some choices that will always generate interest.

    1. Make Minor Changes for Major Impact

    In your bathroom and kitchen, do minor upgrades to really bring the space into the modern age. If you have geese on your kitchen wallpaper or a Pepto-Bismol pink throughout the bathroom the first step should be aesthetic changes. A simple neutral paint or updated tile can easily transform the space into an asset.

    1. Replace Old Siding

    Glamorous it may not be, but when it comes to important upgrades replacing old siding is one of the smartest changes you can make. Weathered wood slabs or mildew-laden vinyl can make any home seem unloved and uninviting.

    1. Build Up or Out

    Depending on why you bought the home you did, adding an addition may have always been in your long term plans, or it may be something you’ve discovered was a necessity. With growing families or cramped rooms, building a second story or an addition can make your home the place you choose to stay during the lean years of the housing market.

    1. Address the Attic

    If your home has underutilized attic space, finishing it to make it usable square footage is a great idea. Not only does it add unique square footage for a movie room or a master suite, but it also can make your home more of a complete floor plan. Missing a playroom or need a guest room? This is the perfect place to make it happen.

    1. Decks Ahoy

    Today’s buyers are looking at run-down, abandoned short sales and bank owned properties to snatch up a good deal, however in just a few years, the next round of buyers will hopefully be looking for homes that have been well loved and well maintained. In an economy where most homeowners will have become “home-locked” waiting for the market to recover.  Future buyers will count on finding a place that has all the amenities, so installing a deck in your back yard could be one of those deal makers, setting you apart from other homes in your neighborhood.

    Keep in mind, if you don’t have the budget for the major renovations now, simply buy a couple cans of new paint or a few accessories to liven up your space. You should be enjoying your home through the lengthy process of steady upgrades.  

    What Mood Your Favorite Colors Create in Your Home

    Published By: Leon Tuberman  -  Friday, January 5, 2018

    Using color to spice up your home’s décor is the most fun way to add personality to your space. The trick is to make sure the colors you are choosing send the right message in the right room. Yellow energizes, red entices, and blue calms- read the following color profile to be sure that your favorite color is sending the right vibe.

    Yellow is anything but mellow

    Yellow is a perfect color choice for rooms you want to brighten, energize, or make cheery. Kitchens and open floor plan dining rooms are perfect candidates for a bright yellow wall or wallpaper- but bathrooms and bedrooms aren’t the best places to use the color since it doesn’t lend itself to snoozing or relaxing in a bathtub very well.

    It is in the very nature of yellow to awaken and brighten (the sun is the perfect example of this) so the color requires a lot of your eye’s attention. As a result, you want to use the color sparingly in rooms that don’t house a lot of activity or entertainment. For small guest rooms or offices, yellow can be used in artwork or throw pillows to add a touch of friendliness, but reserve large chunks of this sunshiny hue for rooms that are in need of brightness.

    Redefine with Red

    Red makes a statement. Even though the color itself can range drastically in depth and intensity on the spectrum, red in any shade evokes drama and intensity. Perfect for formal dining rooms, libraries, and offices, this color is a wonderful choice for any room that bores you. Red walls and some elegant lighting can take any space from dull to dazzling.

    For a new chic spin on the color red, try to only bring in accent pieces in a bright cherry color (like a vintage wingback chair) and couple it with airy blue walls and accessories. Reminiscent of a cozy cottage by the sea, have fun with patterns, for example a red and white candy stripe. This combination of bold and subdued makes any “red room” stand out, without being overbearing.

    Tropical Oasis: Purple & Orange All Over

    Some people love neutrals and others love bright pops of color anywhere they can get it. Inspired by the tropics- colors such as orange, purple and turquoise are bold choices that work perfectly in rooms that need a punch of interest even if they have a neutral base.

    Mixing and matching all three of these colors together can create a tropical inspired palette that screams happy hour or pool party.

    A tropical combination of colors isn’t the best idea for parts of the country that don’t get much sun or that don’t have an element of beach side appeal to them. Instead they can seem out of place and oftentimes cheesy. Choose your patterns well if you decide to go with a bold combination of tropical colors and stick with pinstripes, solids, and textures. This is best for play rooms, bonus rooms, or basements since it can be a little too much energy in rooms that are used for sleep or eating.

    Of course, this is just a very small selection of all of the colors available to you, but for the bright-minded home decorator, choosing color combinations carefully allows for unique and exciting decor. In the right room these color choices can make anyone feel revitalized and ready to rock!

    4 Tips on Choosing a Build Site for Your Log Home

    Published By: Leon Tuberman  -  Thursday, January 4, 2018

    Many people long for the perfect cabin to spend their holidays in or live in full time. The first step in that journey is choosing a piece of land to build on. Here are four key factors to consider when you begin your land hunt.

    Keep Your Hobbies in Mind
    Skiing, hunting, snowmobiling or fishing, whatever your hobby is, make sure you’re picking a site that has the easiest access for those pursuits. Your hobbies will also dictate whatever outbuildings may be required. Secure storage for all your toys is a must, especially if you don’t plan on living at your cabin year-round.

    Consider the Location of Essential Services Near Your Log Home
    If you hope to enjoy your log home for decades to come, make sure you’re a reasonable distance from fire, police, and hospital services. Schools and shopping are a great bonus and worth consideration too. Utilities can be an expensive add-on if you end up the first in your area to bring them in. You can alleviate some of this cost by looking for a property where you only need to bring them in from the county road.

    Look at All Land Options
    Lots in resort areas will cost more than an empty stretch of undeveloped land. There are many reasons for this: the resort may have a pool, clubhouse, or landscaping service. This may result in a monthly or yearly set of fees along with the heftier price tag for a smaller piece of land. You may have to build within a set period of time, and have a prescribed set of elevations you may choose. But the advantages may outweigh the disadvantages: the developer will take care of most of the permits, septic designs, and installation of utilities, saving you those headaches. Again, factor in the lifestyle you are looking for and how much time you are willing to invest in navigating the world of permits and contracts. 

    Every Landscape Has Pros and Cons 
    A remote mountain cabin overlooking a valley is a dream come true. Getting there will cost you! Cutting in a road, proper drainage and levelling, storage of building materials during the build, these factors add to your cost. Don’t forget to add a sturdier roof built to handle snow!

    Waterfront property has its own special considerations. Septic systems are built differently when the water table is higher. The home will need to be built to withstand hurricane force winds if you are in a high storm corridor. Erosion is also a concern.

    The more desirable the build site for outdoor hobbies, the higher the price will be. Expect to pay a premium in the Pacific Northwest or Florida. Prices may be more reasonable in the Southwest or the Midwest.
    Whatever you choose for your build site, a cabin home is a wonderful place to take your family to connect with nature and bond with each other.

    Three Key Elements to a Traditional Arts and Crafts Bathroom

    Published By: Leon Tuberman  -  Wednesday, January 3, 2018

    A bathroom is a place of sanctuary. It can also be the first place in your home that you choose to renovate. Although there are varying opinions on how to best invoke Arts and Crafts style, these three key elements will keep you on track as you plan your design.

    Built-ins are a well know and easily recognized aspect of Arts and Crafts design. In the bathroom, any opportunity to introduce rich cabinetry with a built-in feel will evoke the Craftsman feel. Stains chosen to enhance the rich texture and knots in the wood are preferred. Any furnishings, such as chairs, stools, or benches, should have clean, geometric lines. Mission style furniture or very late Victorian would be good choices.

    Fixtures should be functional and clean, not ornate. Simplicity works best when surrounded with all that rich wood detail. Porcelain pedestal sinks are a good choice, they are elegant and fit into a wide range of bathrooms, size-wise. As for tubs, it’s hard to go wrong with a vintage clawfoot tub, especially if you can get a style that has copper claws for an added bit of interest.

    If those choices aren’t available, modern designs of tubs and sinks fit well with the Arts and Crafts aesthetic. If a homeowner sticks to what is unembellished and functional, it will work well. It’s also an opportunity to vary a tiny bit from the usual: perhaps a traditional shape of tub or sink, but in copper or some other warm metal. Since metal and stonework remain key components of Craftsman style, it will blend quite seamlessly.

    White subway tile, or subway tile in light colors that stick to the organic tones of the Arts and Crafts style look great on the walls. It’s common in Craftsman styles of bungalow homes to tile the walls halfway if they aren’t already paneled in rich wood. For flooring tiles, penny tile or mosaic tile in white or black and white offer an organic and geometric feel to the space that is quintessential Arts and Crafts. They offer a crisp and clean contrast to the wood in the room.

    Bonus Elements
    Decor elements like wall art, wallpaper or decorative pieces are a great place to let some Arts and Crafts colors shine. William Morris’s original wallpaper designs are still reproduced to this day, and having an accent wall, rather than tile, would be period appropriate.

    Stained glass shades would produce a beautiful glow against the wood and tile. Ferns were a favorite plant at the height of the Arts and Crafts era and do well in humid environments. A Mission style plant stand would show it off just right. Window sills are another good spot to put a few sparse pieces of décor or smaller plants. Above all: less is more. Choose trinkets carefully and don’t overpower the space.

    A bathroom is a great place to start playing around with the elements of Craftsman style and include them into your home décor.

    Four Window Treatments for Craftsman Homes

    Published By: Leon Tuberman  -  Tuesday, January 2, 2018

    Window treatments in your home can be the crowning touch on beautiful interior design. There are many options for window treatments for your Craftsman or bungalow home. Let’s look at five ways you can dress your windows to suit your décor and your style.

    Interior Shutters: Emphasis on Craftsman Design
    It’s hard to track down the exact origins of interior shutters, but studies indicate it began in Ancient Greece, to filter light and provide ventilation in the humid climate. The louvers on these first shutters were likely constructed of marble, changing to wood as a better material for large scale production. Shutters work well in bungalow and Craftsman homes, since their style and traditional wood construction matches the Arts and Crafts sensibility.

    In many bungalow homes, the casement itself may be large enough to store the shutters folded back. If this is the case in your home, getting custom shutters is well worth the time and investment.  These shutters were often left alone with no valance or curtain embellishments. The choices for interior shutters are as varied as your décor needs.

    Curtains: An Arts and Crafts Mainstay
    Also an invention from Ancient Greece, curtains can serve to accentuate a window, filter light, or prevent cold air from entering a room. Curtains, or portieres, were often seen in the interior doorways of Arts and Crafts homes to prevent drafts from the front door whisking through the whole house. Although the huge volumes of excess fabric at windows typical of Victorian indulgences had been discarded, curtains during the Arts and Crafts period usually consisted of a “sheer” at the window, followed by a heavier fabric. There are many companies that reproduce patterns and styles of sheers or lace, in addition to fabric curtains, that are true to the era.

    Blinds: A Versatile Arts and Crafts Choice
    Venetian blinds, so named for the city where they were invented, are a great choice if budget is a consideration. Wood blinds would be the most complementary, but there are many color choices and materials available. Horizontal blinds are the best choice for a historic bungalow home.

    Shades: True Arts and Crafts Innovation
    Shades, especially those of the roller variety, are period appropriate for Arts and Crafts homes. Many styles come with their own valance complete with fringe or plain. There are companies that will stencil various Arts and Crafts designs on your blinds to tie in with a period theme. Roller blinds are a great way to gain the privacy and filter light without obscuring the casement around the window, thereby showing off the wood and design. Roller shades were sometimes used in conjunction with sheer lace panels if the effect was deemed too stark. Again, there are companies that manufacture Arts and Crafts themed lace panels for restored homes.

    Whatever your need, window dressing that is harmonious with your bungalow home is a great finishing touch to frame not just your window, but the rest of your interior décor.

    Five Characteristics of Mission Style Furniture

    Published By: Leon Tuberman  -  Monday, January 1, 2018

    Mission style is characterized by simple horizontal and vertical lines, and flat panels that accentuate the grain of the wood. Consumers were looking for a change after the excesses of Victorian times and the influx of mass-produced furniture from the Industrial Revolution. Furniture maker Gustav Stickley first produced Arts and Crafts furniture, often referred to as being in the Mission Style, though Stickley disdained the name.

    Simple Straight-line Construction in Mission Style
    Joinery is exposed, showing the skill and precision required to assemble a piece. Because of the crisp lines and lack of embellishment, Mission style furniture fits well in homes with a modern sensibility and aesthetic, but are equally at home in a cabin or Craftsman setting.

    Heavy and Substantial Furniture—Mission Style Endures
    Wood of the best quality is chosen for each piece. The beauty of Mission style furniture is that even if the styles all remain the same as originally constructed, the type of wood used makes each piece unique. Popular wood used includes hardwoods, like northern red oak, quarter sawn white oak, mahogany, walnut, hickory, cedar, or pine. Differences in grains are paid careful attention, craftsmen often do their best to accentuate an interesting whorl or grain in a piece, especially when a piece of heartwood (from the middle of the tree) is used. This insistence on quality wood means that a piece of Mission furniture can be expected to last a lifetime, and be passed down generation to generation.

    Medium or Dark Stained Craftsman Pieces
    Stain is an important consideration with your furniture. Each type of wood ages differently.  Cherry wood, for example, darkens with light exposure. As mahogany matures, its color can change from yellowish to a pinkish color, or from a deep red to brown. A stain should be a choice that enhances the natural grains and characteristics of the wood, and protects from any water damage.

    Lack of Ornamentation—Form and Function Mission Style
    Ornamentation is kept very simple on Mission furniture. If anything other than wood is used for a functional purpose, it is generally simple iron or copper hardware. In keeping with the high standard of craftsmanship, those pulls or knobs are heavy, well made, and affixed with care and longevity of use in mind.

    Leather Upholstery for Mission Style Furniture
    When material is called for in Mission designs, leather is often the first choice. It’s durable, timeless, and can be dyed a variety of colors to suit any home. Repairs are possible, or if re-upholstering is required, leather’s timeless look means you don’t have to worry about dating your furniture or finding a match. You can request fabrics, of course, but the original styling lends itself first to leather.

    Today, the Amish continue to make Mission style furniture. If you aren’t close to an Amish furniture store, there are other ways to shop. Through online stores, you can choose Mission furniture that comes straight from an Amish family business, selecting all the details to make your piece a personal one for you and your family home.
