The kitchen, or the ancient equivalent of, has always been an integral part of the home. From gathering around in the warmth to enjoying the smells of your favorite dishes to toasting in celebration with loved ones, it’s easy to see why people mingle and are instinctively drawn to the kitchen. Helping to add special touches to your kitchen from our showroom selection is one of our favorite ways to spend our day and there are numerous ways we can do just that.
Beloved toys that need a home. Souvenirs seeking a spot. Favorite books looking for a shelf. The perfect blanket to add to your collection. As much as design often speaks of minimal approaches to homes, the simple fact is that most of us have items that need to be stored in one way or another. The best approach, minimalist or not, is to have a designated space for the items you wish to keep, for nostalgia or for needs. Thought goes into every inch of furniture we have made at Furniture Source International and when we can make a piece that is beautiful, versatile, and functional, then we know our clients will love it as much as we do.
While he may tell you he doesn’t want anything, most of the dads we know love to have a gift for Father’s Day, especially one carefully chosen and meaningfully selected. This is why Furniture Source International is the best place to pick out gifts for the dads in your life – every item we create, procure, or find is chosen and selected for many of the same reasons you are looking for.
We are always seeking a reason to celebrate. Maybe a project at a job, filled with strenuous hours of tasks and communication has finally launched. Maybe a new member of the family is set to join you through marriage, birth, or adoption. Maybe you simply want to celebrate the day for what it is, to relish in life and to seek joy wherever it can be found. There are always things to celebrate in our life and Cinco de Mayo, when paired with our Puro Verde Tequila, is a perfect example of that.
One of the aspects that we enjoy about furniture is the fact that, for most of us, our clients included, furniture involves life. Whether sitting together on a sofa or at a table or finding a perfect nook for your favorite book or photograph, furniture is frequently a part of our day-to-day. This day-to-day carries from the inside to the outside with a patio, porch, or some other similar space. Furniture Source International has a number of options, visible from the moment you arrive at our store, into the depths of our showroom space.
With a variety of choices on our retail space floor, we boast of dozens of options on any given day for seating in your living room, family room, or other similar space. Often, we focus on options that are geared aesthetically, like upholstery prints or solids, leather hues, and rounded or squared cushions. We must stress the importance of thinking about your needs beyond those aesthetics, and considering something much more foundational, the structure of what will be perfect for your home. At Furniture Source International, we believe, the first question you should be asking yourself is what works best for your space and needs: opposing sofas, a traditional sofa, loveseat, chair orientation, a sectional, or something else!
We take pride in the concept that no trip to our showroom is ever the same. Our pieces are continuously rotated through our inventory as it arrives to us from our factories and is taken home to the families and clients we love to serve. Even items that may spend a little time on our showroom floor have a dynamic life within our building as we play with and tweak the arrangements and layout of how furniture is purposed. Is there a way to prepare for a trip to our showroom? There are a few ideas to keep in mind.
The home office has been a dynamic place in the existence of homes for centuries. Through the years an individual may move a stack of papers from a shelf to a communal table or they may have a larger desk if their wealth and square footage allowed it. Home offices may double as guest rooms, workout rooms, or storage spaces. They may be the sole place of work for someone who works from home or a place used intermittently by multiple members of a household. Whatever the case, a home office should be a place that offers a balance between comfort and support, between style and function, and Furniture Source International is well equipped to do just that.
Inspiration comes from a number of sources, in any aspect of our lives. The world around us is rich with color, texture, and even aesthetic design. Likewise, inspiration at Furniture Source International is found in our daily lives, both in a deliberate way and accidental as well. This continued saturation of inspiration leads to a unique and dynamic provision for what we make and carry in our store.
It is no secret how much we love our showroom. We love the way it changes on a regular basis as items are purchased for homes or offices, as new items find their way to us, or as we mix and match new looks. But nestled amongst the couches and beds, the tables and sideboards, and accessories that we hope complete your home is a set of stairs. These stairs lead to an area not as often visited by customers, but should perhaps be a destination during each visit with us. Our upstairs houses one of our hidden gems: our clearance items.
