Posted on October 04 2019
DAY 1: Crofter Style Love Seat - Russet Leather
One of our classic designs, this Arts and Crafts style love seat is inspired by the homes surrounding our store in Oak Park, IL. Known for the largest concentration of Prairie style homes in the country, most are well maintained by the owners, who also decorate in the classic style of the architecture and our Crofter Style Sofa, Love Seat, and Arm Chair are the perfect centerpiece in their living rooms.
Day 2: La Boca Sideboard⠀
One of our original reclaimed wood style designs, this sideboard is still a best seller! The La Boca Collection is inspired by beach side living with bright colors and weathered looking painted wood. We have expanded the collection over time and it now has almost 50 pieces to furniture your living room, bedroom, or dining room.
Day 3: Mission Spindle Side Table / Plant Stand
This side table is a beautiful display of wooden spindles, a common characteristic of Mission Style Furniture. Fitting of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture, this side table displays many similarities to his ideals.
- Repetition: The spindles, like columns, are in an even and symmetrical pattern.
- Integrity of Construction: The cross bar design makes for an extremely sturdy end table.
- Truth of Materials: Like all of our Mission / Arts and Crafts furniture, this table is made of solid
- American oak. We use a combination of quarter sawn white oak and red oak, depending on the design.
We love this end table because it is multi-purpose. Works well beside a chair or bed but stylish enough to stand alone as a plant stand or entry table to rest your keys and mail.
Day 4: English Rolled Arm - Arm Chair - Slate Leather
Though we are known for casegoods, we have been building a reputation for our leather living room seating. One of our first introductions was the English Rolled Arm Sofa, Love Seat, and Chair. This is a timeless design that works well with a variety of home decor. As pictured, Slate is our new and more contemporary leather color. Currently, it is also available in a dark brown and light brown as well. With comfort in mind, the backrests are nice and high and have a medium fill that you can relax into. Details like the nail heads and spun wood feet combined with top grain leather make for a show-stopping living room set that your family will enjoy for many years to come.
Day 5: Mission Craftsman Style Oak Barrister Bookcase
Barrister Bookcases were originally designed to store the many books that lawyers needed to have on hand. Today they're best not only for book storage but also display for china, collectibles, and more. The glass doors lift up and push in on the top of the cabinet so you can easily access the space without holding the door and help keep the dust off your treasures. This model comes in 3 or 5 stack high and maintains the look of a traditional barrister bookcase but is one solid piece. Some of our barrister bookcases are individual blocks and can be stacked 3, 4, or 5 high. We have selected quartersawn oak with a golden brown stain that really shows off the grain of the wood and looks great on the simple, clean lines of this bookcase.
Day 6: Mission 1 Door Bookcase with Side Shelves
Designer’s Choice! Why they love it: There is display space on 3 sides, an interior design dream! We love displaying books inside the cabinet and pottery, figurines, and plants on the side shelves. Available in a one door or two door wide bookcase and light or dark brown finish. Though this is a more traditional design, it really lends itself to blend in with a variety of home decor styles. Once you fill it with your personal items and treasures it will quickly become one of your favorite pieces.
Day 7: Mission Stow Leaf Dining Table
Finding the right dining table can be a challenge. You want something that is attractive and durable to gather around and spend time with family and friends. Our most popular dining table design with push and pull leaves seats 8 people comfortably and has the perfect depth for a challenging dining room space, only 35 inches. This will leave room for walking around the table and maybe even a sideboard or cabinet for you to set out food when you’re entertaining and display items when you’re not. We offer 3 different dining chair options if you are in need of a full dining set, all are sturdy and built to last with solid oak and leather seats. Thanksgiving is coming up fast and we recommend placing the order at least 3 weeks ahead to ensure delivery before the big day.
