High-Tech Task Lighting Features You’ll Love

High-Tech Task Lighting Features You'll Love

Katy  |  11.10.17  |  Design, Furniture, New Products
We’re all familiar with Thomas Edison’s modern version of “the lamp” — a source of electric light that works by heating the filament in a glass bulb. (Apparently, a man named Sir Joseph Swan also played a role in all of this, but I don’t remember learning about him in history class. So I’ll let […]
Boom! Art!

Boom! Art!

Tobin  |  08.02.16  |  Accessories, Design
  Stick Vega is all about the “boom.” The gunpowder artist from Madison, WI, draws inspiration, and a mildly perverse thrill, from the intentionally uncertain act of putting fire to fuse. Each time Vega “blows something up,” he says with a spark in his eye, it is an act of art and faith. Using layering and […]
Easy Ways to Freshen Your Home for 2016

Easy Ways to Freshen Your Home for 2016

Katy  |  01.06.16  |  Design
New Year’s Day makes me crave change. I tend to spend this relaxing holiday at home. This year I looked around my house, and I started to feel a need for a design reset. Maybe it’s the large amount of time I spend inside during the winter, or the fact that I’ve been binge watching “Fixer Upper” on […]
The Art and Joy of Dressing the Dinner Table

The Art and Joy of Dressing the Dinner Table

Linda  |  11.16.15  |  Accessories, Design
I’m not sure when I acquired my love of dressing the dinner table but it began before I hit double digits. My mom would take down our special-occasion dinnerware (until I was big enough to reach it myself), tell me where she wanted everything placed on the table, and then set me free to complete […]

Small Space Solutions

Katy  |  08.13.12  |  Design, Furniture
One of the most challenging design issues is the lack of space, or square footage. At The Century House, many of our customers live in small homes or condos and deal with this challenge on a regular basis. Fortunately, with the right multipurpose furniture, you can get everything you need out of your space. Here […]
Pulling Off Patterns

Pulling Off Patterns

Krista  |  12.19.11  |  Accessories, Design
Nothing makes me more aware of the fact that the long winter months are quickly approaching than the first snowfall! Personally, I need a color change to make it through the dark months. The bright colors and bold graphic of Marimekko have become my latest inspiration. Here are a few tips when playing with patterns […]
Real Room Inspiration

Real Room Inspiration

Krista  |  11.18.11  |  Design, Furniture
When starting fresh with a room, it can be hard to know where to begin.  This is where it can help to have an inspiration.  Inspiration can spring from many different places- a specific color, a certain piece of furniture, or even just a vibe that you would like the room to convey (ie soothing […]
Green Makes an Appearance (Outdoors and In!)

Green Makes an Appearance (Outdoors and In!)

Katie  |  05.10.11  |  Accessories, Design, Furniture
As Apartment Therapy and other home design sources have noted in recent weeks, sustainability isn’t the only green trend currently transforming interior decor. At the 2011 Home & Housewares show in March, shoppers and bloggers alike noticed one thing: the incredible concentration of chartreuse, kelly, viridian, and other emerald shades present in the show’s displays. […]
Spring Renewal

Spring Renewal

Krista  |  03.31.10  |  Accessories, Design
Bit by bit, Spring is creeping in!  The snow piles are slowly disappearing, our days are growing longer and the occasional optimistic (read: slightly crazy) college student is weating shorts while making his beer run here in Madison.  It’s a familiar cycle, but seems new each year.  After spending months being warmed by snuggly blankets and […]
Dale of Norway Feature: Folgefonn Sweater

Dale of Norway Feature: Folgefonn Sweater

Krista  |  09.22.09  |  Design, Gift Giving
 Each Dale of Norway sweater has it’s own story, so it’s impossible to get into specific detail about all of Dale’s sweaters.  However, if you have a question in mind about a particular sweater, feel free to ask!  Just breaking down one of Dale’s simpler sweaters can show how each detail is thought through in […]
