Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

#1) SIT BACK AND RELAX

Outdoor spaces are for entertaining and enjoying good weather, good food, and good company. So be sure to pick out a dining set the provides a comfy and communal atmosphere and is able to withstand the elements. You can sit back and relax knowing that our outdoor furniture is made with long lasting, durable aluminum and the fabric is made with high performing and easy-care Nuevella.

Delightful Dining

Friday, November 18th, 2016

Now is the season for large family gatherings and holiday parties.  Whether you are hosting party for friends or having your entire family over for the holidays, a meal is commonly the main event. If you have a formal dining room or a more casual space next to your kitchen for your table, it is important that your table and chairs are functional and comfortable while still showing your style. It is best to consider how and who will be using your dining room before designing the space. Are you looking for a formal room or a casual space your family uses every day? Will you need extra space and seating for many guests or space for small groups? What shape and size works best for the room?

The first thing to decide is the style of table you are looking for. The style and layout of the rest of your house will help determine what style will work best for you.  If you have a separate dining room, you may opt for a more formal style. Many of today’s houses have open floor plans where the kitchen, dining and living room spaces flow together or are laid out in a great room. Those spaces tend to be more casual in style.  Countertop height tables and stools are also becoming more popular but are definitely on the casual side.

.

.

Even more important than style, is the size of your table.  No matter how good it looks, if the furniture does not function as you need it, you will regret it. Tables come in many shapes and sizes. There are three main shapes of dining tables; round/ oval, rectangular, and square. Each shape has its benefits but not all spaces will work for any shape. Round and oval table are good for small spaces because they have no corners making it easier to get around the table. They promote conversation because it is easy to see everyone seated around the table.  Rectangular tables are the most readily available.  Rectangular tables vary is greatly in size and may be adjustable for different situations. The width of the table is also important.  Too wide and you will not be able to converse easily around the table. Too narrow and there is not enough room for table settings and serving platters.  Between 36-48” is about the widest you should go. Square tables are probably the hardest to fit in a space and are best for small intimate groups.

It is important to measure to determine which shape best fits your space. Keep in mind for easy traffic flow there should be 36-48” of space between the wall or furniture and the edge of the table. Think about being able to walk behind someone while they are sitting at the table. It is a good idea to measure before you starting shopping.  An easy way to see how much space a table will take up in your room is to use a bed sheet or newspapers laid out in the shape and size. This allows you to visualize what size will fit in your room and works best for you.

.

.

Another consideration is the number people you plan on seating at the table. Each person needs about 24” of eating space, so a 72” table fits a three people comfortably on each long side and one on each end.  Leaves are a great way to fit more people for larger gatherings. However, it is still necessary to have enough space for traffic to flow around the table.  Round or oval tables with pedestals are easier to fit people around them and may accommodate extra seating.

When you think of dining tables, an image of a wood table probably comes to mind. Hard woods such as hickory, oak, maple, and cherry are great for tables. Wood tables are available in a variety of styles and finishes to fit any room. Some may have smooth finishes where others are distressed and rustic. From elegant and formal dining tables to rustic farmhouse tables, it is possible to find the perfect table for your style.

.

.

Wood is may be the most common material used for dining tables but it is not the only option.  Laminate top tables are more durable and work well as kitchen tables or for families. Glass tops are stylish choice and add a touch of modern light to a space.  A glass table will fit many decors from sleek contemporary to classic and elegant depending on the legs or pedestal. In smaller rooms, glass top tables appear to take up less space and give the room an open feel. Metal legs are common and recently metal tops are an option. For an added expense, stone is an excellent choice for table top.

After you have selected a table, next you need chairs.  There are an infinite number of chair styles available.  For a formal dining room, chairs that match the table really complete the look. To update formal style and make them more current, consider adding an upholstered chair at each end of the table.  Mix and match colors and styles for an eclectic look.  Upholstered chairs are a sophisticated look but consider the fabric when you purchase. Delicate fabrics may stain easily, while leather, vinyl, polyesters or synthetics are much easier to clean.

.

.

You and your guests will enjoy your table more if the chairs are comfortable. Consider the depth and width, of the chair seat and back, to determine the style most comfortable for you. 22” inches is a good width for an armless chair. Avoid chairs narrower than 17”.  18-19” is the ideal seat height for as dining chair. A good rule of thumb is to allow at least 12” from the top of the seat to the edge of the table. The size of your table will also affect the scale of you chair. Some chairs are heavier than others and can be harder to move for children and the elderly.

Whether its gets used every day or only a few times a year, a dining room table should be both functional and stylish.  At Hatch Furniture, we have a large selection of dining and kitchen tables of all sizes, shapes, and styles. Mix and match tables and chairs to find your perfect set.  Or customize a table and chairs with our Amish line.  Let our experienced staff help you create the dining space you have always wanted.

Why Amish?

Friday, July 29th, 2016

 

Furniture shopping can be hard!  There are many factors to consider; quality, style and price are the main factors for most consumers. It can be trying to balance all three. Amish furniture is a great blend of these factors. It is high quality, long lasting and well made.  It may be more of a financial investment, but the quality and durability make up the price difference.  Amish furniture is available in a wide variety of style and designs from classic styles that never go out of style to more contemporary options. More and more people are buying Amish-made furniture for many reasons. The following are some of the main reasons to consider buying Amish the next time you are looking for new furniture.

Amish furniture is a great investment. You know when you are buying Amish-made furniture you are getting quality furniture that will not break or fall apart easily.  It will last because of the craftsmanship and quality of materials used.  Your Amish furniture will serve you for many years to come.

It’s hard to deny the beauty of wood furniture. A beautifully crafted piece of solid wood furniture is a piece of art. Well-built wood furniture is functional and beautiful. Each piece is crafted with care and skill. These pieces are not mass produced and no two pieces will be exactly alike.

Another benefit to Amish furniture is that it is American made.  When you buy Amish furniture, you know you are supporting American workers and communities. Many furniture manufacturers now source their products from factories and workers in other countries.

In addition, it’s Greener. Amish furniture is greener than many other types for a few reasons.  Because it is made in the US, the furniture does not have to be packaged and shipped overseas.  Most Amish-made furniture is wrapped in blankets for delivery saving all the layers of packaging and the blankets can be used over and over. The wood is usually locally sourced and sustainably harvested. The Amish create little waste by using the wood not suitable for furniture for other wood products and harmful chemicals, like formaldehyde, are not used.

One of the best things about buying Amish furniture, is that you can customize it. Are you looking for a specific wood species or stain color for your furniture? Are you trying to match another piece of furniture that you already own? Amish furniture can usually be customized for you. You can select the wood species and finish of the piece to your preferences. Varying sizes tables and styles mean you can create a dining room set that is unique and reflects your personal style.

 

Benefits of Solid Wood Furniture:

Natural Beauty – Every type of wood has its own unique color and grain. Solid wood furniture has a timeless beauty that adds charm and elegance to any room.

Durability – Solid wood furniture is very durable and resilient. It can handle more wear and tear than many cheaper alternatives.

Low Maintenance – Regular dusting and polish can keep a wood piece looking great. Small scratches and marks can be sanded out by a professional, even some smaller dents and dings can be repaired. A few things to avoid with your wood furniture are direct sunlight, too hot or too cold, and too dry or too humid.  All those things can negatively affect your wood furniture.

Finally, there are a few other things to consider when buying Amish furniture.

Finish – Look for a high quality finish before buying a piece.  Conversion varnish finish is designed to safeguard the beauty and integrity of heirloom quality wood products.  Conversion varnish is a high quality long lasting finish that will protect your wood furniture from household products, food and oils.

Construction – You should always look at how any piece of furniture is constructed before purchasing. You know when you are buying Amish furniture that it is well-constructed, but some things to look for are corner blocks, dovetail joints, dowels, and screws.

Time – Because Amish furniture is not mass produced, it will take longer for you to receive it. Unless you are buying pieces off the showroom floor, the furniture you order most likely has to be made specifically for you. On average, this can take about 12 weeks.

Style – Traditionally Amish furniture is made classic styles that will never look out-dated.  However, today, more contemporary styles are available.  Because you may be making a significant investment in your Amish furniture, consider the style carefully. Choose something that you know you will continue to love over the years.

The name “Palettes” means we give you a blank slate, an empty artist’s palette, and you fill in the custom color, fabric, style and wood species to create your own masterpiece exactly the way you want it.

At Hatch Furniture, we carry an Amish line called Palettes by Winesburg.  They are located in Ohio and have a fully integrated process from growing their own trees to delivery on their trucks. A wide range of style and options are available to create unique, beautiful, and functional furniture. Our designers can help you select and customize the perfect pieces for your home.

Living with Fur, Feathers and Fins

Friday, July 22nd, 2016

One ground rule for selecting furniture is to take into account how family members will use the space. This includes pets! After all, most of us consider our pets as part of the family. Here are some things to keep in mind when furnishing a home with non-human animals in residence:

Performance fabrics should be considered when looking for upholstery. Stain-resistant and easy-to-clean, these fabrics can better handle the occasional hairball or dog drool. Today’s performance fabrics have a great touch appeal and can mimic the look and texture of natural fibers. They are typically made with synthetic fibers, including acrylic, polyester, olefin and nylon. Acrylic and polyester fabrics provide superior fade resistance too. Microfiber fabrics are tightly woven from polyester fibers; stains can’t penetrate the fiber itself and the tight weave helps prevent the stain from going through the fabric.

Broyhill_Zachary-microfiber

Microfiber is a great option for upholstered pieces when living with pets

If you prefer to go with a natural fiber on your upholstery, there are many options out there, but be prepared to spot clean and be aware that the life span of natural fibers is generally shorter than that of synthetic fibers. Slipcovers are another option, but most manufacturers will recommend that you have those professionally cleaned in order to maintain fit.

If your pet tends to shed, you may want to consider a leather or leather-like upholstery cover. These covers allow you to remove accumulated fur with a damp towel. Here’s another reason to consider leather: cats will be less likely to use this furniture as a scratching post.

We all love out pets, but let’s face it – they can act like animals. Destructive behaviors like chewing and scratching are often part of their nature. Having an accessible outlet for these habits will help save your furniture. Scratching posts for cats and chew toys for dogs are important to have in your home. A pet bed in your family room can help make everyone comfortable and save wear on the furniture meant for humans.

Crate training your dog will allow your pet to have a cozy den and keep him safe. Many decorative crates that double as end tables are now available to blend in with your décor. When your dog is out, he is supervised, and you can redirect destructive tendencies away from your furniture.

You can even take color palette inspiration from your pets. Fish and birds are often vibrantly hued, and since they usually reside within one particular room, they can contribute to its décor. Looking to your furrier, more mobile pets for color inspiration can help make shed fur less noticeable.

Pets are an important part of our lives. With a little planning you can make sure your home is comfortable and inviting for all creatures dwelling in it.

Pets are an important part of our lives. With a little planning you can make sure your home is comfortable and inviting for all creatures dwelling in it.

Regular cleaning of your furniture will help extend its life. You should vacuum upholstery on a regular basis to remove soil and fur. Spot clean according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Please note that most warranties and extended warranties do not cover damage caused by pets; however, every warranty is not the same, so it’s best to ask the sales associate or designer about the warranty coverage.

Get the Look – Coastal Chic

Friday, July 8th, 2016

 

Love the cool colors, open air and relaxed setting of a day at the beach, but don’t live on the coast?  Why not capture a bit of the laid-back coastal lifestyle for yourself all year long?  The Coastal Chic look brings the best of the beauty and serenity of coastal living.

The Coastal Chic style is a sophisticated take on beach-inspired interiors.  It’s soft and serene, evocative of the seaside but without beach house clichés or color schemes.   The look is refined yet casual – a nod toward coastal living – incorporating fresh open spaces, materials found in nature, and the colors of the beach.  Here’s how to bring it home.

Bright & Airy Coastal Inspired Bedroom: Turquoise & Coral are the perfect accent colors for the crisp white walls and sand colored headboard

Bright and airy coastal inspired bedroom; turquoise and coral are the perfect accent colors for the crisp white walls and sand colored headboard.

 

Surf, Sand, and Shells
Cool coastal hues create a calm, relaxed atmosphere.  Choose from a palette of soft blues, pale greens, and sandy neutrals – the colors of the beach.  The Coastal Chic look also makes brilliant use of white – it’s fresh and clean and reflects light.   Coastal interiors are bright and airy, blurring the line between indoor and outdoor living, so be sure to let in plenty of sun.

Fabrics and Fibers
Simple, comfortable fabrics are the hallmarks of this style.  Inviting upholstery such as cotton, linen, or denim will help you create a laid-back setting.  Sofas with slipcovers look casual, crisp and clean – particularly in white.  Capture a sense of space with flowing sheer curtains that catch the breeze and let in the sunshine.  Furnishings crafted from organic materials accent the coastal theme by bringing the outdoors inside – try some grasscloth wallpaper, a flat weave sisal rug, or some jute or rope accents.  Burlap or wicker lend a rustic touch.

Pieces of Nature
Pull the look together with materials found beachside.  Driftwood accents and whitewashed wood have a just-washed-ashore weathered appeal.  A piece of coral, smooth stones, or other found objects stacked in a clear glass cylinder add seaside glamour.  Natural elements bring warmth and texture to your interior, but keep it simple – don’t “go overboard” with piles of shells on every surface.  Use a palm branch or bamboo in a tall vase instead of a floral arrangement.  Hang a mini-gallery of vintage prints depicting ocean life intertwined with mirrors or add a stylized mermaid or octopus to reflect the maritime theme.

Not just for the beach-house, not only for summer, the Coastal Chic look can help recreate a moment in time, capturing the essence of a peaceful day at the beach.

Elements for Outdoor Entertaining

Friday, July 1st, 2016

Elements for Outdoor Entertaining

Among Americans’ top must-haves is an area for socializing, relaxing, and enjoying the outdoors in comfort.  Make your outdoor room inviting – transform it from just another space into to a fully realized (and utilized!) room.

SEATING – Go a step up from that wobbly folding lawn chair.  Modern outdoor furniture is stylish, sturdy, and built from a variety of weather-resistant materials, requiring little to no maintenance.   Cushion fabrics are just as fashionable as indoor upholstery options, and maintain their color better than ever.  Arrange a seating grouping that encourages conversation, and keep your guests comfy with plenty of pillows to lounge on.

Comfy Outdoor Seating

 

DINING AREA – Firing up the barbecue grill and eating outdoors is big part of summer.  Food can go straight from the grill to the table with an outdoor dining set.  Whether you’re enjoying your morning coffee on the porch or hosting the neighborhood party, every meal is a picnic.  Keep a basket stocked with silverware and napkins and place it in the center of the table.

SHADE – Your guests will thank you for a bit of shelter from the blazing sun.   Without shade, they’ll get too uncomfortable and head for cover indoors.   A patio umbrella provides shade and gives a sense of enclosure that you might want around a dining area, for instance.  Some umbrellas can tilt and turn to be readjusted throughout the day.

RUGS – Comfy under bare feet and durable against the elements, an outdoor rug will make your space feel more like an extension of your home.  An all-weather rug will provide some pattern and personality and serve to anchor the rest of your furnishings.  Bring the indoors….out!

LINENS – Spread out a nice tablecloth, and with that simple touch you instantly elevate any outdoor dining experience into a special occasion.  For some extra privacy, shade, or to give your room a tropical vibe, hang some sheer outdoor curtains.  They’ll catch the breeze, draw the eye, and form a tranquil secluded setting.

ILLUMINATION – As your party carries on into the night, your lighting scheme becomes your outdoor room’s new backdrop.  A solar powered string of bulbs is always appropriately festive, good for safety, and a practical option if you’re short on electrical outlets outside.  Criss-cross them overhead, line the walkway, or wrap them around a tree.   Candles glowing inside lanterns will certainly create an intimate effect.   Add some soft, diffuse light from a pendant or wall-mounted fixture; find a style to match your space or architecture.

FIRE – Everyone naturally gravitates toward an open fire when the sun goes down.  A fire pit offers the ultimate in outdoor ambiance:  the crackling flames of an open fire.  They’re available in wood- or gas-burning varieties – either works for marshmallows!  This feature also extends your outdoor living season since you can gather round when weather starts to get cool.

WATER FEATURE – Even the simplest fountain or pond can put you in touch with nature with the relaxing sound of running water.  A water feature makes a nice backyard focal point.

Your outdoor space is a part of your home.  It beautifies your property and adds comfort to your day.  Make it the perfect haven for spending time with family and friends.

Summer in Style – Create a Great Outdoor Space!

Sunday, May 15th, 2016

After a long winter spent indoors, here in the Midwest, we are all anxious to get outside, breathe the fresh air, and soak up some sunshine.  Make the most out of your outdoor space by making it an inviting and comfortable place to spend time. The outdoor area of your home whether a patio, deck, etc, can be used as an extension of your home. An extra space to spend time and entertain during the warm weather months.

To get the most use from your outdoor space, it is important to think about how you intend to use the space. Who will spend the most time there? How much of an investment you are willing to make? Is it a place for relaxing on a comfy sofa or chair? Will you be using it to dine or entertain? Both? The quantity and variety of pieces you may need, will depend on how you plan to use the space.

Deciding how you are going to use your outdoor space is important when considering what materials will be best. For example, aluminum pieces are rust resistant and easy to move around, but will not be as sturdy as steel pieces. Cedar furniture is beautiful and comfortable, but requires maintenance, like a coat of sealer every few years. Here a few things to consider when selecting what material is best for you.

  • Aluminum – Rustproof, lightweight and relatively inexpensive. Requires little weather treating and is easy to clean with soap and water.

 

  • Plastic, Polymer, & Resin – Lightweight and durable, these materials are available in a variety of color and style options. Some can be made to resemble other materials like wicker or wood. Higher quality plastics and resins are very durable and resistant to stains and mildew.

 

  • Steel & Wrought Iron – Both heavy and durable but may rust if not painted or weatherproofed.dockside_2

 

  • Wood – Natural wood makes beautiful outdoor furnishings and can be very comfortable and sturdy. Wood does require regular care.  Woods like teak, redwood, cypress, and cedar are good options because they are weather-resistant.

 

  • Wicker/ Rattan – Wicker furniture is both beautiful and comfortable. However, most real wicker is intended for indoor use only. You need to make sure you are purchasing wicker that has been treated for limited weather exposure. Even with treatment, wicker should only be used in places such as covered porches or other places with little exposure to the elements.

 

  • Resin Wicker – Today, the wicker look is available in a resin which is woven to look like the rattan but is weather resistant and durable. A variety of styles and options are available.

 

  • Fabric – Outdoor fabrics are becoming available in more and more colors and patterns. Make sure the fabric on any cushions or pillows is approved for outdoor use. These fabrics are designed to withstand the weather and fading.

 

It is easy to think the quality of outdoor furniture may be less important than the quality of your indoor furniture. In fact, the opposite may be true.  Outdoor furniture has to withstand the elements from sun exposure, wind, rain and maybe even snow too! You get what you pay for when it comes to outdoor furniture.  It may be a great deal now, but it probably will not hold up and you will be purchasing new in a few years. Carefully consider the quality of the furniture you are buying.  A good set with proper care can be enjoyed for many years and provide many hours of comfort and entertainment.

 

If you do purchase a quality set, it is important to take care of it. Moving furniture to a shed or garage during the winter months helps to protect it from the elements. If that is not possible, invest in covers for the more valuable pieces.

Look at your outdoor space as an extension of your home and bring coordinating styles and colors to the space.  Let the architecture of your home inspire you. The style and finishes on the exterior of your home should help influence what style and colors you use outside. More and more fabrics and options are becoming available, making it easy to expand your indoor style outside.

 

To truly get the best use and value out of your outdoor furniture, it needs to be comfortable.  If you are planning on spending much  time outside, you will want the furniture you and any guests use to be inviting.  Try out any set you are thinking about buying.  Just like the pieces in your living room, it needs to be comfortable if you are going to enjoy using it.  Also, you many want to think about any frequent guests you may have.  Some pieces can be too low or deep to be the right fit for everyone. Think comfort and buy accordingly.

 

Don’t be afraid to accessorize.  From pillows to rugs, outdoor accessories are becoming easier to find.  Accessories are a simple way to add pops of color and are easily changed when you want a new look. Vases, lanterns and pillows are small details that can add to the comfort and ambiance of the space. Or let your flowers and plants be your accessories. Use the colors from the flowers you already have to inspire your colors or add more to accent with the colors you like.outdoorprimary-styleshot_101

 

An outdoor rug is another great way to add color and pattern to your outdoor space. A rug should be large enough for a table and chairs to have enough room to be pulled out, but still stay on the rug. For a seating area, all major pieces of furniture should have at least the front two legs on the rug. Outdoor rugs are typically made from natural materials, like sisal or bamboo, or synthetic fibers like acrylic.  Rugs made from natural materials have a great texture and are durable. Too much moisture and mildew can damage your natural rug though. Synthetic rugs are lightweight, come in vibrant colors and dry quickly when they get wet. A rug can also help protect your patio or deck along with adding great color and style.
