Holiday Siesta

By: Kate Donnelly

Between traveling, food prep, and that double whammy of tryptophan and red wine, Thanksgiving can be exhausting. Once the pie has been eaten and the dishes cleaned, we are all ready for a little turkey-induced coma.

We found some very comfy pieces to retire to after Thanksgiving indulgence. So put up your feet, drown out your crazy relatives, and take a well deserved nap on one of these finds:

nap1We love love the bohemian vibe of this Roche Bobois Sofa designed by Hans Hopfer. The low profile and wide cushions make it great for sitting, laying, or lounging. With room enough for the whole family!

After an evening full of family rhetoric, many of us will feel like fainting. Hopefully there is a stunning antique fainting couch like this one somewhere close by.

It’s a bean bag, it’s a hammock…no, it’s a Beanock! For grown ups and kids alike, the Le Beanock brings comfort and fun. I think this looks like the perfect place to cuddle up for some Z’s.

nap4One look at the dreamy Enignum Canopy Bed already has us in a trance. With it’s organic curved wood and flowing canopy, this bed whispers instant relaxation.

By: Danielle Cornely

As we ease into autumn and the temperature drops, we’re bound to spend more and more time inside. Winter is the time of year when your dining table is really put to the test, with family gatherings and big meals. Now is the perfect time to consider upgrading your old table to something that really makes a statement. These five are sure to impress your guests!

The Cherner Oval Table at Design Within Reach is all smooth lines. No sharp corners here! Even the legs curl into the walnut veneer tabletop, creating a striking yet gentle look.

Looking for something that makes a serious impact without being too avant-garde? The Louie-Marie table from Roche Bobois is as elegant as it is functional. If the over 8.5 feet tabletop still isn’t quite big enough, don’t worry! This gorgeous table extends an additional two feet.

Room and Board’s Saarinen Table by Italian designer Eero Saarinen, in true modernist fashion, is all about form. Without unnecessary multiple legs, this sleek, sculptural table is a work of art.

The Baer Table from Welborne Henson, a local Atlanta maker, is simple and simply stylish. The solid tabletop will hold strong during the barrage of house guests, and the slightly curved legs distinguish this piece in a subtle yet noticeable way.

If you want your dining table to be the center of attention, look no further than the Morotai Table by Carlo. Beautiful, dark tones slowly morph into golden hues on a unique and unforgettable shape.

With colder temperatures moving in, the dining tables we neglected over the summer in favor of picnics and backyard cookouts will see much more use. Make sure it’s a piece you love!
