At Christmas time, all roads lead home

By Katie Garman, Pedersen’s Designer

Christmas isn’t just a season, it’s a feeling. So why not surround yourself with wonderful feelings of quality and warmth? Personally, I love this cozy and festive time of year for entertaining at home. There are many easy ways to spice up a room for the holidays without becoming too stressed.

Easy Holiday Home Decorating Idea From Pedersen’s Designer

Holiday decorations on leather ottomanOttomans at Pedersen's FurnitureOttomans available at Pedersen's FurnitureOne interior design trend that our designers love is to use an ottoman as a design focus. Decorate your ottoman with festive trays filled with candles and holiday décor. Try draping a throw to add color to the mix! The photo on the right is just one example — have fun accessorizing your ottoman with your own holiday décor!

If you wish to purchase an ottoman as an addition to your room, there are programs that allow you to personalize your purchase and create a family treasure. For example, with MT Companies ottoman series program, you can select your size, shape, and customize the rest to get the look you want. Add some decorative nail head trim, with fabrics or leathers that fit your space and enjoy a completely custom made piece designed to your specifications.

An attractive ottoman can function as storage as well as a decorative piece. A large storage ottoman keeps extra blankets handy for those chilly winter nights. Many of our furniture brands, including Stickley and Century, feature a variety of ottoman styles to choose from. Use it for blankets, magazines, or to hide all those PlayStation controllers that seem to be all over the place. This stylish option is just one of many creative ways to personalize a room, not just for the holidays, but also to help make everyday living a little more manageable. Pedersen’s furniture is featuring an IN STOCK SALE for December, where you can get some of these ottoman and tray ideas right away, and not have to wait!

Whether you are rearranging a room with existing furniture, or incorporating new furniture, it can become an overwhelming task. Come visit Pedersen’s 28,000 sq. ft. showroom, full of beautiful furniture and accessories. Our talented designers are available to help you bring quality and comfort into your home and help you ready your home for entertaining this Christmas.

See you soon and Happy Holidays from all of us at Pedersen’s Furniture!

About Staff Writter, Donna Katen

It was 1998 when I picked up the phone and my sister-in-law Deborah, at the time a designer for Pedersen’s, informed me of an open position for a part-time receptionist. Having not worked for five years while starting a family and also with a background in floristry, I was not confident there would be a fit. I interviewed, was hired, and began my training at Pedersen’s.
