Lakeside Selection: Our Choice of Favorite Items for the Week

The end of the summer is almost upon us, and most parties are already starting to move from the outdoors to the living rooms. At Lakeside, we know how important it is for you to have a great space to relax, and we help make that possible.

Sofa-Side-Table
Whether you are entertaining guests for a football game or just lounging, this sofa side table can make your downtime much more enjoyable. Place your party snacks and beverages on it for easy access during the game. Or, if you just need a place to put a laptop while doing work, this mini-table can be an absolute life saver! The beautiful contemporary design fits in perfectly with a wide range of designs and motifs. Finally, the convenient shape allows the base to slide underneath your sofa or other furniture for easy storage and cleanup.

Ladder-TV-Stand
If you are a fan of the game, you already know how important viewing angles are! Your t.v. has to be in the optimal position, especially if you have a living room full of guests. In order to cut down on the glare, our ladder tv stand makes it possible for everyone to get a spectacular view of the screen and catch every play. In addition, the gorgeous modern design has ample storage while cutting down on any unnecessary clutter. It can hold a flat screen of up to 52 inches, and accommodate 100 pounds on the main shelf. The intricate and aesthetically pleasing ladder storage units are a great new look and they are popping up in design magazines everywhere! Get your new stand today and let the compliments pour in.

Don’t forget to pay attention to the little things, as they can really make or break your home decor setup. One of the main attributes that we like promoting is the overall flow of the room. This is true from your kitchen to your living room, and everything in-between. If you use this as a guideline, you’ll find that it’s sometimes easier to start from scratch. Use the purpose of the room as your base. Fill in the blank and everything else will fall into place effortlessly. For example, “My living room is used for ______”.  Once you define it, and actually look around the room, you’ll see that you probably have a lot of extra items that don’t contribute to that overall purpose. My living room is used almost exclusively for entertaining, and relaxing. So, some of the main elements I focus on are: comfort, style, and lots of open spaces (even if that means completely rearranging the furniture that I have).

Floral-Pillows
One of my favorite details is using accent pillows to soften the look of a room. While mounds of pillows are the most appealing part of relaxing, their visual aesthetic is often overlooked. What’s my secret? Don’t overdo it. It’s only comfortable if there is still room to sit on the sofa. Try not to cover up too much of the seating area, and if possible use the corners of the couch instead of the middle. This will open up the space for a more inviting and spacious look. Also, get enough so you can match your pillows with your existing color scheme, and change them up from time to time.
