Making More Time Together: Furniture for Family

Beth Rice 12/01/2017

Time passes quicker than you think. Turn around and the toddlers you were chasing after have grown into teenagers with active social lives that keep them away from home.  All those family activities you’ve enjoyed together over the years now must be scheduled in advance.

Resolving to spend quality time together in the New Year takes some recruitment on your part and the right furniture. Read on for solid wood furniture selections that make it easy to gather as a family for an evening of fun.

Dining Together

Dining room memories are ones that stay with you forever. The soup and salad nights, the funny things dad says at dinner, and everyone’s special seat at the table become cherished recollections. From our Shop the Look feature, the Cambridge Dining Set creates a dining room filled with the warmth and comfort you’re looking for at every meal.
