As a company located in the South, we at Cushion Source are surrounded by the phenomenon that is college football. This is not just an everyday occurrence – this is a lifestyle. College football is like Christmas to us Southerners; a Christmas that lasts around four months. We anticipate the first kickoff of the next season as soon as the last game ends. We long for those crisp fall Saturdays like children anxiously awaiting a visit from Santa. We make our own wish lists consisting of top ten predictions, new collegiate clothing and accessories, and guest lists for our next tailgating event. We serve copious amounts of food and beverages to which we indulge to no end.

Inspirational Styles and Movements: Volume 1

As a history buff, avid reader, and devoted television watcher, I wanted to create inspiration boards focusing on periods of style. For this first board, I wanted to share my favorite decade of the 20th century, the 1920s. I was influenced by some of my all-time historical (and historical fiction) favorites: Montgomery’s very own Zelda Fitzgerald, “The Lost Generation,” forgotten mansions of New York’s Millionaire’s Row, The Great Gatsby, and both television series Boardwalk Empire and Downton Abbey… I could seriously keep going.

Wicker Furniture: Endless Possibilities

Wicker Furniture: Endless Possibilities
Posted by Laura Beth Hamm  in Design Ideas   No Comments »

Wicker furniture serves as a timeless addition to any space. Wicker furniture and accessories can be traced back to ancient Egyptian and Roman times, proving it to be a truly lasting option that has never gone out of style. Traditional wicker is a weave constructed of natural fibers found within the core of rattan, bamboo or cane stalks, and in some cases it is made of reed grass or long twigs. Newer versions of wicker furniture include resin or plastic fiber weaves that are perfect for uncovered outdoor areas that are exposed to the elements. If you are using natural wicker for your outdoor space, make sure it is protected from precipitation and sunlight by sheltering it with furniture covers or by treating it with a weather-proof seal.

Although we know wicker is timeless,  it is also undeniably perfect for entertaining! Because natural wicker is made from woven fibers, it is lightweight and can be easily moved around to accommodate guests in any location, whether inside or outside. While most wood furniture seating tends to be uncomfortable and stiff, wicker offers flexibility for exceptional relaxation. The woven fibers are better suited to conform to body weight which provides greater accommodation and fit for anyone.
