Make It Work with Functional Furniture

You love your smartphones and smart cars. At Ashley HomeStore, we love our smart furniture.

To the traditionalists who attest “form follows function,” we say form and function go hand in hand. Here are some of our favorite furnishings designed to make life easier—and more stylish—everywhere from the home office and living room, to the bedroom and beyond.

Birnalla Desk

Mighty smart indeed, the Birnalla desk is crafted with a hinged flip top, so you can conveniently prop up reference materials, including your tablet, while you work. And thanks to dual electric outlets and USB charging ports, staying powered up is easy. The chic look blends rustic charm with modern polish.

Cross Island Credenza

Those on a mission to set up a productive work-from-home space love all that the Mission-style Cross Island credenza can do. Built for looks and productivity, it includes a pull-out tray for easy printer access, file cabinet storage, a built-in power strip and ample storage above and below the work surface.

Laflorn Chairside End Table

How many times have you sat down and realized…you’re out of juice. Wouldn’t it be great to charge up without getting up? Check out this chairside end table’s flip top revealing a power station with USB charging ports. Factor in a pullout tray with cup holders and a remote slot, along with shelved cabinet storage, this end table has plenty of hidden potential.


Gavelston Lift Top Table

Appearances can be deceiving. What looks like a straightforward “weathered” coffee table in vintage black is anything but. With a lift tabletop on one side and trunk storage on the other, the Gavelston lift top coffee table has raised our expectations. Optional casters add to the form and function.

Woodboro Desk

Traditionally styled and modestly scaled, the Woodboro desk proves that old and new can work so well together. Spring lift top raises the surface to a healthier-alternative, standing position. For your high-tech needs, there’s an electrical outlet/USB charging port built right in.

Maxington Nightstand

The Maxington nightstand is getting plenty of buzz for good reason. On the reverse side, a pair of slim, discreetly placed USB ports power up modern electronics without distracting from its countrified cool charm.

So…what works for you? Go ahead and share your favorite smart furniture features in the comments section below.

Create a Home Sweet Home Office

Typically, the words “cozy” and “workspace” don’t go together, but today we’re going to be bending the rules. The following tips are a great way to add some warmth, personal style and creativity to your desk area.

#1: Add texture and warmth

Adding a throw over your chair is a great way to add comfort and dimension to your workspace. You can fold it over your chair back or lay it face up over your seat for added comfort. Faux furs offer the warmth needed for an office and allow you to share your style in a practical way.

#2: Keep it personal

One of our favorite ways to keep a smile throughout the work day is to have photos of loved ones around. By adding photo frames to your desk, you surrounded yourself with positivity, no matter what chaos the work day may bring.

#3: Add creativity, without the clutter

A trick to adding creativity to a smaller space without making it look messy is to go vertical. By using taller, rather than wider, decor you can add an equal amount of personalization but use a fraction of the space. For this workspace, orchids and ferns add a touch of color and complement the earthy sophistication theme.

With these three simple steps, you can transform your workspace and your mindset while making the space comfortable and unique.

New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home: #1 Declutter

The advent of the New Year is always a good time to reflect on goals and make thoughtful resolutions about how we want to improve our lives. Here are some suggestions to bring the resolutions for 2017 closer to home.

Get Rid of Old Stuff

Many people tend to acquire new things faster than they get rid of the old. This can lead to overstuffed closets and overcrowded living spaces. If you’ve noticed more things lying around your home than you have uses (or space) for, now is the perfect time to give those items a new home. If a piece is in good condition but no longer useful to you, donate it to a local charity and pass on the joy the item gave you to someone else.

If your space is being taken over by things that are no longer useful to you or anyone else, then decluttering is as simple as getting a few trash bags and dedicating time toclearing out your space. If the task seems daunting, setting a timer for 5 minutes to an hour a day for dedicated cleaning time can really ease any anxiety you are feeling.

Acquire Attractive Storage Pieces

If you’re not interested in elimination so much as organization, beautiful and functional furniture might be the perfect solution. The following are examples of pieces that look great in their own right while also helping to keep clutter at a minimum:

Bookshelves

Johurst 75″ Bookcase

Storage Benches

Brickwell Storage Bench

Beds with Built-in Storage

Reylow Queen Bookcase Bed with 2 Storage Drawers
