A Peek at Fall and Winter Trends

Although the temperatures may still be scorching in some parts of the country, there is a shift in the atmosphere that signals a change in the seasons.  The excitement of summer is winding down, or already in the rearview mirror, and most of us are sinking into our school and work routine for the autumn and winter months ahead.

A new season means a new wardrobe, a new menu of seasonal food, and for some a new inspiration to freshen up our furniture and décor.  Oak for Less has a large inventory of beautiful wood furniture, and while each piece holds a special place in our heart, what we enjoy most is seeing it integrated into your homes.  Sometimes it can be overwhelming to picture what kind of furniture will fit with your décor.  Our goal is to make this easier for you.

So, this week we have been scouring our favorite sites and magazines to not only bring you the hottest trends, but to match these trends with something from our inventory that can help bring your decorating vision to life.

Modern Neutrals


Sometimes simplicity is best.  Starting with a neutral palette can lead to lots of opportunities to diversify.  Large natural wood pieces paired with accents of colors can have both a relaxing effect and make a statement.

Oak for Less recommendation:


Amish made furniture like this classic solid oak table is sturdy and durable and can integrate into different design styles.  Try spicing it up with unique chairs or table settings.

Corner Displays


We all have that awkward corner or area that is just missing something.  Sometimes a little bit goes a long way.  Adding a unique table and a few treasured items can instantly transform the space from useless to artistic.

Oak for Less recommendation:


Our solid parota live edge slab table in a white finish is a versatile piece that can liven up any corner.  Try it behind a sofa or along a wall and add a few interesting pieces from your collection.

All About Storage


Country Living calls this “statement storage” and we think it is a win/win.  Everyone can use a little more storage, why not be bold and use your storage pieces for functionality as well as style.

Oak for Less recommendation:


This antique white collection solid wood console is perfect for bedrooms, living areas, and dining rooms.  It provides lots of storage with a vintage feel.

The furniture world is a wide and expansive place with trends changing faster than the click of a button it seems.  Oak for Less wants to be a trusted source for all of your home and design needs.  We will continue to keep our eye out for quality furniture that can fit into any design trend.
