1. Improve the Vibes in Your Home with Scented Candles

    Candles can dramatically alter the mood and feeling of a room. Here's some tips on achieving great ambiance using scented candles in your space. Imagine sitting outside on a warm summer night. You’re surrounded by friends, enjoying a brisk glass of golden sauvignon blanc, feeling the pine scented breeze flowing gently across your skin. Or maybe you’re cozied up inside on a gloomy day. Cool gray light softly filters in through the window, with that distinct smell of rain dancing across your nose. Smells are a big part of how we experience these moments, and you can recreate a similar ambiance with scented candles. Candles are symbols of celebration; we use them on top of cakes when celebrating a milestone, in spiritual ceremonies or vigils, for soothing and for healing. Candles produce a relaxing ambiance that is hard to replicate. Occupations like massage therapy and acupuncturists often use candles to create a more soothing and relaxing experience for their clients. Candles expand a space, they can help to create a wide variety of lovely ambiances to suit the mood and occasion.  Continue reading →

  4. Counter Height Dining Tables Add Versatility & Style to Kitchens

Usually measuring about 36” tall (at the table top surface), counter height is approximately 16 inches taller than dining height, and about 6 to 8 inches shorter than bar height.

We’re going to explore a few of these benefits in more detail below.  Continue reading →

  7. We Interview the Owner of Fresh Restorations, Maker of Custom Reclaimed Table Tops

    We always love to see the creative ways that customers use our table bases. Recently, we sat down (virtually) with Audrey Jones about her small business “Fresh Restorations” located in Somerville, New Jersey. Fresh Restorations is a reclaimed wood furniture business that takes salvaged barn wood (usually sourced from large sawmills) and turns it into beautiful custom tables. Audrey uses a sustainable process to transform tired pieces into beautiful reclaimed wood tables, desks, bars, and bar stools. Audrey started the business in 2015 when she moved with her husband into her family farmhouse in rural New Jersey. Being a decorative painter and artist for over 20 years, Audrey has a touch for creating beautiful pieces of art. The inspiration for Fresh Restorations started when Audrey created a wood kitchen island for her family’s farm house using reclaimed barn wood. Salvaging things in the countryside was something she noticed that did not take place as much in the city. People loved recycling, and creating things out of recycled materials. Continue reading →
  8. Is Manufacturing Coming Back to the United States?

    The Covid-19 epidemic has drastically changed the way we live by accelerating the trend towards e-commerce and delivery instead of in-store sales. When it comes to manufacturing, the current global business model requires that many of the physical goods we want to purchase are dependent on overseas manufacturers, either for parts or the actual finished goods. As a result, businesses and consumers are struggling with delayed freight times and the rising cost of freight. The level of consumer demands is driving a surge of overwhelmed ports, and companies are facing difficulties shipping and delivering products to consumers in a timely manner. The omicron variant is only adding to the issue, with record numbers of people out sick, stressing industries even further. The United States relies heavily on foreign producers when it comes to manufacturing, and Asian manufacturing companies control a majority of the United States shipping routes.  Continue reading →
