Here's an idea: create a cozy bar area for festive parties where guests can gather.

Want to create an entertaining area for family and friends but don't know where to start? Bar stools are the easiest and most cost effective way to create a hangout zone and extra seating. Investing in chic and timeless kitchen stools will also give your kitchen an instant facelift without the fuss (and cost) of remodeling.

How to achieve a luxe home aesthetic for the holidays without breaking the bank?

So you're after the designer look for the holidays, but at an honest price, right? Not a problem. The answer to achieving an elegant and chic aesthetic is, be selective and bold with the pieces you're investing in. Take our Theo 6-shelf and  Kova Sideboards, they work in perfect harmony together but are also stand out pieces all by themselves. Here's an extra handy tip for when you start decorating: If you push two Kova Sideboard Cabinets or two Enloe Sideboards together this makes for the perfect console table to layer festive decor. If you choose key statement pieces like the Kova or Enloe, you can easily soften the rest of your space with festive decor such as natural green garlands, and elegant festive candle sticks.
