Having been in the design industry for some time now, I’ve worked to find furniture for many different homes and families. And what I found over the years as I purchased furniture from “big box” stores was that when it comes to the primary pieces of furniture in a home (chairs, sofas, ottomans, and the like) the combination of quality and durability was lacking in a big way. So many of the families I’ve worked with told me that they were waiting to purchase their “good” furniture—beautiful, quality, long-lasting pieces for their homes—for when their kids grew up and were out of the house. They didn’t want to purchase beautiful furniture because it wasn’t functional or comfortable for a big family or a house full of people, but they didn’t like purchasing lower quality pieces in the meantime because they found themselves having to replace them every few of years.
When it comes to design, we love helping our clients create homes that they’re proud of—homes that feel extraordinary! And just like fan-favorite football coach Jimmy Johnson says, sometimes the difference between the ordinary and extraordinary in a space is that little something extra. That’s why we want to help you find the perfect pieces to give your space that little something extra it needs. Take a look at a few of our favorite accessories for your home this season that are sure to make any space a little more extraordinary.
It was just this time last year that we were putting the final touches on a dream come true—our very first brick and mortar store on Canton Street. Last December we were just getting ready to finally cut the ribbon, open our doors and welcome you into our sweet home in downtown Roswell. You and the people of our community in Roswell have welcomed us in with open arms, and we couldn’t be more proud to have been a part of this incredible city this past year.
We officially kicked off the holiday season at Linen & Flax last month by hosting our first annual Christmas on Canton Street. We can’t thank those of you who attended enough! You made the day a huge success—our busiest of the year! It’s such a thrill to be able to help your halls get decked and your homes get ready for the most wonderful time of the year!
One of the most popular design trends to adorn your home is the creation of a gallery wall. It’s a great way to decorate a wall in a personal way. We’ve seen them on dominant walls over sofas or sideboards, on smaller walls in entryways or bedrooms, or traveling up the wall alongside the stairs. A well-designed gallery wall can create an incredible focal point for your home, but you want to make sure you do it right! An unplanned, undone wall can look like a cluttered mess, and none of us want that!
With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, those of us hosting the day in our homes are already at work getting our places ready for family and festivities. While your Thanksgiving table (and hopefully the food!) will be the main attraction, don’t limit your decorative attention to just that space. Spread the holiday décor around your home to keep your guests in the holiday spirit no matter where they are.
October has arrived and all you parents out there know that means one thing: Halloween is on the horizon! If your house is anything like mine, that means more than just picking out costumes and finding the best candy. It means getting your space in the spirit by incorporating some holiday décor around your home.
Last month, we had the exciting opportunity to host Linen & Flax’s very first Fall Faire. Our team transformed the backyard of our storefront on Canton Street into a celebration of the season on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
