Chicago Furniture for the Holidays: Tasteful Decorating


We all have those neighbors… You know, the ones who rearrange their Chicago furniture for Christmas faster than you can say “it’s only November 1st.” They prefer inflatable yard decorations and a tree so big it can barely fit through the front door. And you prefer to close your eyes until you reach your driveway.

Don’t get us wrong—we love the holidays here at Wrightwood Furniture store in Lakeview, Chicago. But we lean toward the less-is-more decorating mantra. Hints of red and green scattered around the home instead of a room that looks like a glitter factory after an explosion is right up our alley. And down our chimney.


Give your dining room an easy holiday update by swapping out your everyday seats with the Organa Chair in scarlet red. They say “Season’s Greetings” without screaming “WE LOVE CHRISTMAS!” Accent the chairs with elegant gold table accessories and a white tablecloth and you have yourself a merry little Christmas dining room (that still lives up to your style standards).



You’re dining room is red-y for the holidays, but what about the entryway? Add a pop of a more neutral tone of green—instead of opting for the predictable evergreen—to your Chicago entryway furniture with the Asmara Table in Laurel Green. Top it with an assortment of white decorative candles (or a candle in a warm, winter-y scent… yum) and a framed photo of the family at last year’s holiday celebration for a Christmas decor arrangement that you won’t feel guilty about not taking down until February. Whoops.


In Between

On to the living room. For most of us, this is the room with the tree… meaning it already has a lot going on holiday-wise. But to keep the tree from looking out of place in an otherwise normally (and flawlessly, of course) decorated room in your Chicago home, add a pinch of holiday spirit with a neutral throw pillow that subtly hints at the holidays, like the Red, Green, and White Flower Crewel Pattern Pillow from Wrightwood furniture store Chicago. The festive floral pattern resembles your typical cheesy decorations, but instead, it’s perfectly chic.


Easy as pie (preferably pumpkin), right? And the best part is that all of this unique furniture from Wrightwood can be on display and in use all year long. No more “Christmas in July” excuses needed.
