Must Have Ashley Furniture items for the perfect winter home

When decorating for winter, it’s easy to fall into a holiday-themed rut. And who would blame you? Christmas and New Year’s celebrations command a tremendous amount of our attention (and energy) every year, so naturally, we focus on decorating our spaces with these important holidays in mind. But what happens when they’re over? We’ve got a couple more months of chilly winter weather to work through. At the same time, the holiday season has come to a close. What’s a winter decorator to do?

This is where our friends at Ashley come in. Ashley Furniture Portland offers a wide selection of beautifully-made winter decor, accessories, and furniture pieces that are sure to keep the winter blues at bay that aren’t also holiday-themed. See below for a few suggestions we would like to share!

Why Shop Ashley Furniture? Browse A Few Suggestions:

Throw blankets

Nothing is easier than adding a few cozy throw blankets in your family or living room when the temperatures start to drop. Consider the emerald-colored Yasmin Throw for a bit of winter greenery, or the chunky Leonita Throw for a crisp, clean, off-white look.

It is our recommendation to choose a colored throw blanket that won’t clash with the rest of the room. For instance, if you already have a space decorated in red or other warmer colors, consider a throw that coincides with everything else. Stay away from mixing reds and greens in order to avoid Christmas-themed confusion. Choose whites, light blues, or pastel greens for a lighter palette for a sense of more breathing room.

Candle holders

Candle holders are a fantastic way to give a space a greater sense of warmth and comfort. Ashley Furniture offers some fantastic candle holders for winter, and we could not be more excited about your options. One of our favorites is the subtly regal Marisa Candle Holder. These candle holders help brighten any room you choose to put them in. And their polished gold finish and dimpled metallic sheen offer a striking yet humble tone that will help draw your guests deeper into a sense of comfort and peace.

A much-needed change of scenery from the deary cold many of us around the country are working through this time of year. If gold isn’t your style, choose from a whole selection of quality candle holders from Ashley. We are confident there is one just perfect for your winter abode.

Dining chairs

If you have been thinking about adding a new focal point to your dining room, the Parkins Cream Upholstered Dining Chair might be what you have been waiting for. Offering a timeless yet contemporary look and feel, the Parkins chairs add to the coziness and comfort around your table. White buttons, and black wooden legs, and rolled edges all combine for an elegant yet inviting look.

Anyone sharing a wintertime meal around your dinner table will surely feel right at home in one of these chairs. The white color pairs excellently with a variety of other winter-themed colors such as reds, greens, and gold. They also look perfect around other wooden pieces such as tables and hutches.

Wall art

Sometimes a well-placed piece of wall art is all you need to give your room a wintertime refresher. What you choose to put on your wall is entirely up to you, of course, and Ashley Furniture has something just for you. 

When choosing a piece of wall art, consider what you hope to achieve. Are you trying to be reminded of something other than the harsh winter climates? Do you need to brighten the color palette or tone of the room? Is the wall art going to become the focal point for the rest of the decorations that go into this space? Don’t think too hard about what to hang on your wall, just choose something you know you will enjoy for many years to come.

Comforter set

If you’re looking for that ultimate winter must-have, there is really nothing cozier and more snuggly than a winter comforter set. Comforter sets are ideal for dealing with those wintertime blues. There is also nothing quite like getting into bed under a sensationally-comfortable comforter. It’s almost indescribable how exciting it can be to get ready for bed and dive into a new pillowy cloud of warmth and comfort. 

When choosing a comforter, select a color and style that are going to help set the right tone for the room. Be mindful of the color and design, but also consider the room around it. Will it become a focal point of the room, or a supporting detail of some other important piece for your mind to focus on? Choose a color that offers a comforting, warm presence such as off-white, red, or a wintery green. Or go the other way and choose something stark and clean, like the crisp chill winter winds outside in the warmth and comfort of your bed.

Outdoor fire pit

Nothing brings people together like an outdoor fire pit. These are ideal additions to any outdoor gathering space and will become an iconic winter and cold weather item you’ll cherish for years to come. Ashley Furniture's  outdoor fire pits are manufactured with that same rugged, time-proven quality all their products are known for. Their outdoor fire pit is no exception. Operated with a simple push-button ignition and control knob, the piece could not be easier to use. It’s constructed from aluminum, meaning it will never rust and will withstand decades of use. Its round shape makes it perfect for gathering around, and you’ll enjoy hours of laughs and conversations with friends and family through even the coldest temperatures.
