BOSTON, Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Hosting loved ones for the holidays goes far past football and presents. If you are the "lucky" one hosting family this year, and are less than confident about providing accommodations for your incoming guests, the holidays present a great opportunity to invest in new home decor, via treating yourself to new furniture that will bring forth great feedback from friends and family.
It seems as though as soon as Labor Day passes [tear], family members start emailing and calling about plans for the upcoming fall and winter holidays. Inviting guests into your home is a time to make others feel comforted, and gracefully showcase your home and life improvements since their last visit. For many homeowners, this starts with one of the most important rooms in the home, the dining room, more specifically, the dining table. If you are hosting family this year consider investing in a dining table that you will be proud to display for all to see, and one that will last for many generations and holidays to come.
Furniture retailers are experiencing the holiday rush weeks in advance. For example, each year eCustomFinshes, a custom maker of reclaimed custom farm tables and other reclaimed furniture, experiences the holiday rush starting the 1st week of September, and continues through mid November. "Many customers are looking to accommodate friends and family and see this as an opportunity to treat themselves at the same time, and for many this involves new living room or dining room furniture, which if custom made can take up to 5-8 weeks. Hosting guests for the holidays is a big event, and for this reason many retailers see holiday rush starting early September," says Jane Longden, co-owner of eCustomFinishes. Specifically, "customers come to us with the common problems of associated with accommodating guests for the holidays, and they are in need of something unique, something custom that is guaranteed to catch the attention of guests throughout the year."
No matter the time of the year, the centerpiece of any family gathering is the dining table. A well-built dining table will last a lifetime, so if you are the "lucky" household to host the holidays this year, consider these upcoming holidays as a great excuse to treat yourself to some new furniture that will be sure to turn heads. Finding the furniture item for your home takes time, so be safe start preparing 6-8 weeks early.
