Autumn is the perfect time to reminisce about summer memories and look forward to the holiday season ahead with family and friends. When hosting your family and friends this fall, there are many pieces of accent furniture that can create an inviting environment while still encouraging everyone to kick off their shoes and relax. Where should you begin? Twin Star Home™ offers a few ideas you and your guests will love.
Creating an Inviting Display
It might sound obvious, but the best place to start when decorating for fall is ensuring you have the right accent furniture in place to create captivating displays. From family photos highlighting autumn memories to pumpkins, and candles, having a stunning sideboard helps set the tone for the season.
For fans of striking style, the black accent cabinet below serves as the ideal sideboard in the dining room, but also shines in the living room, foyer or even a bedroom. The cabinet’s top surface is a great spot for autumn décor. And it makes it easy to serve up holiday meals without crowding the tabletop. Use it to create an eye-catching dessert buffet, or keep extra glasses, plates, napkins and cutlery within easy reach. The stylish textured doors hide three interior shelves where you can store china, stemware and other essentials. Or you can stow throws and pillows out of sight until they’re needed.
Serving Seasonal Tastes with the Best Accent Furniture
One of the best parts of entertaining any time of year is serving up the tastes of the season. That’s especially true when it comes to hosting in the fall, as cravings for pumpkin pie, hearty dishes, and seasonal beverages have been brewing all year long. However, apartment dwellers and those living with smaller kitchens can find it difficult to prepare elaborate feasts with limited counter space.
Enter the kitchen cart. With added countertop for prepping piecrusts or mixing up cranberry sauce, you’ll find more space than ever before to let loved ones pitch in as you prepare the holiday meal. Drawers and shelves keep cooking tools, spices, dishtowels and more within easy reach. Plus, you can store those bulky small appliances, like your stand mixer, food processor or blender.
For the Wine Lover
Nothing says sophistication like a well-stocked home bar. But while many of us lack the space and budget for a wet bar, a stylish accent cabinet can provide the ideal solution. From holding your favorite spirits and wines to keeping everything you need to mix up cocktails within reach, a bar cabinet makes you look like the host with the most each time you invite guests over for a get-together.
One of our favorite bar cabinets for the modern home, the mid-century bar cabinet shown below allows you to store up to 12 bottles of your favorite fall wines. It also features a hanging stemware rack to keep your wine glasses safe from harm. And the drop-down work surface is ideal for mixing cocktails and pouring wine. Plus, its sleek lines and modern design will look outstanding in any room.
Accent Furniture that Does it All
Some say that our phones keep us from connecting, but that’s not always accurate. When guests bring their phones to the party, they can share favorite playlists. And they can even take photos everyone will enjoy seeing on social media the next day. A dead battery can stop the fun before it starts. But with powered accent furniture, your guests can plug in, recharge, and get back to using their devices.
That’s where an end table with USB charging comes in. The coastal vibe of the two-tone table shown below also complements any home with a farmhouse or mission style. Two USB ports quickly charge cell phones, tablets and more, ensuring everyone stays connected all night long.
Multifunction accent furniture is also a great way to keep the party’s vibe going strong. When hosting during the fall months, you may want to put on monster movies or other creepy classics. Or maybe you’ll want to cue up a playlist with seasonal tunes. A TV stand with Bluetooth® compatible speakers offers a great way to create a striking entertainment area without the clutter of multiple devices.
For those game day gatherings or movie nights, you’ll find everything you need for the ultimate entertainment room in the Enterprise Bluetooth® Compatible TV Stand with ClassicFlame® Electric Fireplace. With an integrated six-speaker soundbar and powered subwoofer, you can easily connect any of your Bluetooth devices to stream whatever you want to watch. Then you can sit back and revel in the high-quality sound. Turn on the electric fireplace to warm up with the cozy glow of dancing flames and chase away the chill.
