Your Home vs the Sun
July 29, 2020

Throughout the summer, we tend to focus more on catching rays and soaking up the sun than on our furniture; but when the sun shines through our windows, our sofas, chairs, and tables soak up the sun as well and can suffer from sun damage. UV rays are powerful and just like we have to protect our skin, we have to protect our furniture investments. Not only can the sun potentially damage the furniture, but it can also increase your electric bill; with the sun radiating through the windows, it adds heat to a room, making your air conditioner work overtime in trying to cool it. Thankfully, we have a solution! Window treatments are the most effective and efficient way of protecting your furniture and keeping your electric bill low. And the best part is, not only are they incredibly functional but they’re stylish and can add flair to your room!

Melamine
July 1, 2020

Melamine dinnerware is a stylish, practical, and durable take on traditional china, porcelain, and ceramic. They all share the same intricate and detailed look; however, Melamine is virtually unbreakable and shatter-resistant.

Ideal for both indoor and outdoor dining, our Melamine dinnerware is perfect for your next BBQ (Hello July 4th…) or even Monday night’s dinner on the back porch.

Benefits of Melamine:

  • Dishwasher safe
  • Easy to clean
  • Looks and feels like porcelain
  • Extremely durable
  • BPA free
  • Elegant yet affordable
  • Unbreakable; Shatter and scratch-resistant

 

Unlike glazed dishes, Melamine can withstand high temperatures and therefore is dishwasher safe. It’s also an insulator meaning it takes a long time to change temperature and stays cold while holding hot food. Melamine is also great for holding cold-temperature foods and buffet displays for the same reason.

The best part about Melamine is all of the fun colors, designs, and textures they come in! This leaves an excellent opportunity to mix and match and have FUN with your table decor.
