Make Yourself at Home
The holidays are a perfect time to freshen things up. If you're putting up a Christmas tree, you'll probably have to shift a piece of furniture or two anyway, so why not take this opportunity to arrange your living room in a way that's ready-made for holiday entertaining.
Since this is a place to gather and share stories, don't make the mistake of centering your setup around your TV. Instead, place your furniture in a way that makes it easy to have a conversation, even if it's just a temporary measure while you're hosting. With your seating facing inward, all that's left is to create a stunning holiday-themed focal point.
You can't go wrong with an electric fireplace
. We offer a variety of fireplace styles at Raymour & Flanigan, and there's no special installation required. With its radiant heat and beautiful flame, you will be glad to have it during the cold winter months.
An accent cabinet
can also be a practical—and beautiful—centerpiece. Like a fireplace, its surface gives you an opportunity to show off your decorating skills. The advantage of a cabinet is that it gives you extra storage space, and who wouldn't want that? No matter what you choose, you're sure to have a fabulous setting for entertaining.
