Planning Ahead

So it’s mid-summer and hopefully you are vacationing or planning to take off soon!  Most of us aren’t thinking about our home decor right now. But then September rolls around and we are starting to consider what we will do for the holidays, possibly having people over.  Then we start looking at our houses and thinking about what updates are necessary. By then it’s almost October and it becomes crunch time. Most upholstered pieces take 8 to 10 weeks, hardly leaving anytime for your pieces to arrive by Thanksgiving.  My suggestion is to take a little down time now and get ahead of the game!

Just to inspire you to start thinking about this, I have picked some of my favorite newer pieces from Bernhardt that you may not have seen yet. So here you go! And as always, we offer a 40 percent discount on Bernhardt furniture.  Please email me for quotes on any of these pieces.

Have a great summer!


This is a great new sideboard that I am crushing on from Bernhardt. Also adore this cool, new table! And how handsome is this dining chair?



  • Always love a canopy bed.
  • Cozy and comfy!
  • Nothing like a cozy chaise in your bedroom. Love this fabric as well!



How cool are these chairs for a slick contemporary look!

Love the clean lines of this Phoebe sofa and Phoebe chair, especially with one of my favorite cocktail tables.
