New Year, Upgraded Furniture & Style

Stickley Dining set from Surrey Hills Colleciton.

A new year brings with it hope and the opportunity to revitalize and upgrade your life. Here at Ennis Fine Furniture, we seek to provide you with an array of high-quality furniture to help revitalize and breathe fresh air into your home. This January, choosing Stickley, one of our American furniture makers, is the perfect way to accomplish such a feat.  

With over 120 years of expertise in furniture design, Stickley adheres to the highest standards of craftsmanship to provide you with furniture that’s built to last– and that statement is no cliché. Stickley Furniture continues to operate in the US, with over 90% of their products being made in New York. They ensure that only the highest quality materials are used in construction and employ classical methods of design. For example, the white oak from which much of their furniture is made is cut parallel to the tree rings as opposed to across them, with perpendicular fibers being bound together to fortify the strength of the wood. Established techniques such as crafting with quadrilinear posts, center-guided drawers,  detailed cross rails, and keyed tenons are also employed, just to name a few. Utilizing skilled craftsmen in the detailing and finishing of their products, satisfaction is sure to be had. 

Whether looking to buy just one or two new pieces for your home or contemplating a complete overhaul of your current look, the dining room is a great place to start your search. The site of countless family meals and precious memories, what better place to showcase new top-of-the-line furniture? Stickley’s Surrey Hills dining room collection contains numerous simple and sleek designs guaranteed to complement any home. Their white oak trestle dining table, available in several different finishes, consists of two 16” leaves and extends over 106” in length. The combined simplicity and elegance of the design is such that it is sure to leave an impression on family and friends alike. You could also opt for a set of their arm or side chairs. Adorned with a trellis motif and upholstered seat, the oak frame can serve as an accompaniment to their dining table, or can be mixed and matched with already existing furniture in the room. The beauty and versatility of the Surrey Hills line leave room for your own creative touch and inspiration.

If you are unsure of how you want to upgrade your home’s sytle, are in search of professional guidance, or simply want to speak with someone to gain some creative inspiration, our Ennis design and sales staff are an excellent resource to utilize in achieving your dreams. Working together with our Ennis design experts, we can help you create the home of your dreams.

Home Office Ogranization

Hooker Furniture Brookhaven Executive Desk.

The turning of a new year traditionally has us reflecting upon how we can make life better.  At Ennis Fine Furniture, we look at this from, of course, a home organization and efficiency standpoint.

Probably the most consequential room in your home to get organized is your home office.  Let’s start with your desk.  Whether big or small, storage space is everything in a desk.  Take a look at the Brookhaven Executive Desk by Hooker Furniture.  This stately left pedestal-right return desk provides plenty of surface space for your computer, keyboard, and papers.  There is plenty of space within the Brookhaven with a total of 2 shelves and 6 drawers.  A feature we like about the Brookhaven Executive is one of those desk drawers is large enough to accommodate your printer!   Cherry veneers make up the material composition of the Brookhaven with a distressed medium finish. Distressing includes scratch antiquing and worm holes.  Classic. Functional.  Beautiful!

While continuing to focus on the office, let’s include a credenza in our upgraded home office, but with a completely different design inspiration.  The Hooker Furniture Rustic Glam collection brings to us all the organizational storage space we need, but with a modern flare!  The Rustic Glam features a soft white oak veneer finish with eglomise glass accents.  The dimensions of the Rustic Glam credenza are a healthy 52”x 22 ¾ x 30 ¾ and will provide the storage more than adequate for most home offices.

Having a well-populated bookshelf in one’s home is not just a statement about its owner, but also a logical place for organization.  At Ennis Fine Furniture, we believe your bookshelf should say as much about you as the books themselves.  That is why we love the Bristowe Collection by Hooker Furniture.  The Bristowe bookcase is casual, but refined and very stylish.  Crafted of Pecan Veneers in a Tuxedo black paint finish with touches of warm brown, the bookcase has two doors with one adjustable shelf behind and 3 adjustable wood shelves. Special features include anti-tip hardware and a puck light at the top with a touch-switch on the right pilaster.  We know your favorite novels will feel right at home on the Bristowe!

We have given you multiple options for both home organization and style for 2023.  Would you like some help bringing it all together for your home office?  Our professional Ennis Fine Furniture designers are here to help you get organized with style in 2023.  Happy New Year!


A Christmas with World Class Opulence & Simple Home Comfort Furniture

Hooker dining room set.

How exciting it is to find ourselves in the Christmas Season and indeed in the Christmas spirit!  Whether fancy or familiar, this time of year, as we welcome family and friends, we want our homes to reflect the festivities and the many celebrations that are bound to take place.

What better place for friends and family to gather around than a beautiful table, like the Archivist Trestle Table from Hooker Furniture.  The Archivist Collection is inspired by a French aesthetic with just enough farmhouse design to make it the perfect centerpiece to welcome your holiday guests.  And speaking of hosting guests, you can invite a lot of them when you are dining around the Archivist! With two 18-inch leaves, the table extends 122 inches long and gracefully accommodates two armchairs and six side chairs.

As part of the Archivist Collection, and the perfect accompaniment to the Archivist table is the matching Archivist sideboard by Hooker.  The Archivist sideboard combines classic American and European styling cues and is generously proportioned.  Other functional features include a pull-out surface and four doors with an adjustable wood shelf behind the right and left doors and an adjustable wood shelf behind the center doors and a drawer with a silverware tray.

Do you have special Holiday dinnerware, flatware, or curios that you would like to showcase during your Christmas gathering?   We invite you to take a look at the spacious Archivist display cabinet.  As with the other pieces in the Archivist Collection, the display cabinet captures the inspiration of a French salon with the comfort and accessibility found within the American farmhouse tradition.

If by now you are under the impression that the Archivist Collection by Hooker offers both world-class opulence while providing simple home comfort, you would be correct and that is why we love it so much!  If you would like to learn more about this collection, or any design inspirations, we welcome you to contact a professional, knowledgeable, creative Ennis interior designer.  They love nothing more than to help you make your design dreams come true!

And, from all of us at Ennis Fine Furniture, we wish you a blessed Christmas Season!

Parties, Pageantry & Preparation

Kistler Emporium Collection Buffet

Parties, Pageantry & Preparation- Furniture You Need For The Holidays

Have you heard?  The Holiday Season is upon us!  Fret not, planners!  For even if December is another month full of parties, prep and pageantry, there are tools to help carry the load and keep your holiday cheer fresh all season long. Take the Kistler Buffet by American Drew. A sturdy and beautiful structure of white oak and a rich shadow high-low veneer that conspire in a wellspring of aged character. A craftsmanship of simple shapes and smooth, interlocking ergonomics, the Kistler Buffet will help keep organized even the most labyrinthian of holiday potlucks. 

Let’s say all the lessons of this past “Turkey Day” have got you thinking about logistics. Even with the kids’ table, it was still a stretch to seat everyone comfortably this year. For adding that extra space in a full dining room, the Roslyn County Dining Table from Hooker Furniture has two 21-inch leaves capable of hosting up to 10 guests. A rustic industrial piece made of wood planks and metal sheeting, its dark walnut finish is reminiscent of reclaimed 19th-century barns and offers a particular warmth for those cold, wintry evenings lit by a crackling fire.

If the holiday planning still feels complicated, take a stroll down to Ennis Fine Furniture, your local, family-owned fine furniture store. There, we can help uncomplicate things by answering any questions you may have relating to your design needs. In business and in the same Boise family since 1946, Ennis Fine Furniture prides itself in its relationship to its customers. With three Pacific Northwest Locations (Richmond & Spokane, WA and Boise, ID) Ennis has built a steadfast reputation of cultivating a customer-first, fine furniture buying experience. Custom-built drawers, doors, hand-stitched upholstery, whole pieces and more are not out of the question for our professional design staff. They can expand on any design a piece might bring into your home and field any questions you may have therein–a complimentary service if you shop with Ennis. 

Curating Thanks

Bernhardt Plush leather sofa

Curating Thanks

Thanksgiving is a holiday that is  deserving of its own fanfare and message. That message, of course, is one centered around the mindset and practice of gratitude.   We believe giving thanks is best suited within the comforts of a large, familial gathering. 

What better place for a family to gather and give thanks than around a chic, beautiful dinner table.  A dinner table like those created by Hooker Furniture.  Take a look at the dining table and buffet from Hooker. We present to you Hooker’s Curata Collection as the center of your Thanksgiving meal.  Curata, meaning “curated” in Italian, mixes materials like black nickel, stainless brushed brass and marble with three distinct rustic modern finishes for a simple, yet urbane design. Inspired by timeless shapes and chic materials, Curata exudes a “less is more” feel by spotlighting the design of each piece and giving precise attention to detail.

Once Thanksgiving dinner is over, and everyone has moved away from the table, you will want to provide a comfortable space for you and your family members to congregate.  A grand leather sofa that can accommodate one and all is the perfect solution.  The Plush Leather Collection from Bernhardt is stylish and modern with deep, comfortable, luxurious seating. Plush Leather is a new experience in design for living spaces, combining organic, fully protected leathers with relaxed tailoring, sumptuous down cushions and gracious scale.  What better venue could there be to simply visit with loved-ones, and or watch the “big” game in plush leather.

All of this and much more can be found within one of our showrooms at Ennis Fine Furniture–your local, family-owned fine furniture store since 1946. Located in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, Ennis has three convenient northwest locations in Boise, Idaho; Richland, Washington, and Spokane, Washington. Stop in before your Thanksgiving guests arrive and browse the many furniture options you have available from Ennis. You can consult with one of our Ennis design experts about how one of our pieces could fit within your already-perfected style–complimentary  service unique to the Ennis Fine Furniture shopping experience.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family from all of us at Ennis Fine Furniture.

November Is For Nesting

Uttermost Gold Branches

November Is For Nesting

Fun fact: In Idaho and Washington –many native birds typically don’t fly south for the winter. Despite having four distinct seasons with a myriad of weather conditions to account for, 80% of the native birds in our region are nonmigratory, meaning they are likely still out there right now, just like the rest of us, scurrying about to complete the remaining tasks before winter comes for fair weather’s final curtain call. In nature, they call this nesting.

And, as the mercury drops below freezing, and you begin some nesting of your own, you come to realize that just like those birds, the comfort and sustainability of your home is paramount to enjoying the winter. Feast your eyes on the curvaceous wings of the Alexander Wing Chair from Hancock and Moore. With its deeply-layered finish, stout, solid-wood Oak frame and coming in a myriad of luxurious prints, the Alexander has the enviable position of grandiose proportions draped in the familiar coziness of a beloved grandfather’s armchair–all the while being a power recliner. A genuine article of the triple-threat. 

And who would know all about the Alexander and what it takes to craft the perfect living experience for winters in the Northwest? Well, none other than your local, family-owned furniture store, Ennis Fine Furniture. In business since 1946, Ennis has been a passionate purveyor of fine furniture from all parts of the globe, especially craftsmen right here in the U.S.A. 

Maybe a chairside table is part of your nesting plans this year. Take a look at this beautiful and understated Willow end-table from Hammary Living, with dramatic, sculpted lines that add a dramatic look to any home.  Perhaps a perfect aside to the end table, and continuing with our nesting theme is the look of Gold Branches Screen by Uttermost.  Truly a piece of art for your home, its lifelike branches are hand-forged in iron before a gold leaf finish is applied, also by hand. Whether it’s this remarkable piece, or a whole-home interior design, our expert team will work tirelessly to help you hatch the perfect look for your house this winter. 

Thinking of where to take your nesting plans this year? Come down to one of our three great Northwest locations (Richmond, WA; Spokane, WA; or Boise, ID) and get to know one of the Ennis designers.  They have the experience, insight, and talent to make your home nesting dreams a reality.  By the way, design services are complementary when you shop at Ennis Fine Furniture!

Jewelry For The Home

Uttermost Polaris Pendant Chandelier

Jewelry For The Home

At Ennis Fine Furniture–your local, family-owned furniture store–we understand the key role light plays, so we have numerous lighting options and accessories to choose from to ensure your rooms are lit to perfection. We consider the home to be an ensemble, an ‘outfit for an evening’ and the lighting therein as the“Jewelry For the Home”. Nearly 4,000 lighting options are offered through our partners, half of which come from the same eclectic manufacturer, Wildwood. We say eclectic because there’s no end to the variations available through Ennis Fine Furniture. Let your imagination run wild and get creative with your design penchant! From the Esmado Chandelier to the Crystal Floor Lamp to the Tiered Turtle Lamp, Wildwood has a host of lamps—1,800 plus—and other lighting solutions to choose from, each featuring a shape of harmonious proportion and beaming functionality.

Inside, the flicker of the light reveals its carved image, casting shadowy shapes into the street; it’s amazing what a simple change of light can do to a place’s mood. It’s probably why lighting may be the most principal variable when trying to nail a room’s certain aesthetic. The tiniest change in lighting can really make or break a space, so a keen arranger would be wise to read the room and light accordingly. You don’t want your house to look like a overbright showroom, but at the same time, you want to be able to see furniture in the room before your shine finds it first. Take a look at the Melissa Golden Amber Light Pendant by Uttermost Lamps and Lighting. A breathtaking work of handmade craftsmanship, each glass pendant is mouth-blown and no two are alike. Finished in a regal brushed nickel, this fine piece will illuminate and inspire any who may sit under its warm glow.

When we speak of “Jewelry For The Home” and lighting. we can’t help but to think of the chandelier.  Chandeliers have been traditionally associated with wealth, luxury, and a higher aesthetic ideal.  Regardless of the style,quality chandeliers certainly do embody that ethic.  Today, however, there are a whole host of chandelier styles-  from traditional  grandiose to industrial to even rustic. Or, to something that embodies all of the above.
For example, If you want a chandelier that makes a dramatic statement, the Uttermost Polaris Pendant chandelier will do nicely!    So much to appreciatehere-  A brushed nickel 8-light geometric star placed within an orb that features a washed wood center band.  Stunning!

Lighting glistens, shines, and cast shadows.  It truly is jewelry for the home. Time to accessorize by visiting Ennis Fine Furniture. One of our knowledgeable Ennis designers will help you create the perfect lighting environment for your home.

October Is Time For Warm Decor

Hancock & Moore Sofa

The Autumn season is upon us again: the chillier nights and crisp mornings; brilliant shades of oranges, reds, yellows and browns that canopy our tree-lined streets.  October is a month overflowing with change, beloved and championed by so many because of this very distinction- October is truly a month of seasonal transition. It is always this time of year when we also think of getting cozy and our “nesting” instincts take over.  And, nothing says cozy nesting like settling into great furniture like this Hancock & Moore City Loveseat.  Rich leather textures and Fall colors set the stage for this room-anchoring piece that makes a statement the whole year through. Yes, where home decor and nesting are concerned, October and Halloween provides a myriad of opportunities for you to warm your home decor with textures, colors, and furnishings that speak to this thematic season! 

Did you know wicker is a classic texture of Fall?  Take a look at the Reflections Rocker by Lloyd Flanders. It features rich, cloth fabric woven over a supportive wicker frame in a simple and elegant pattern. You will have excellent viewing accommodations for the parade of trick-or-treaters coming to your home!  Imagine having this comfortable post, a bowl of candy in hand, on your front porch to wait for the neighborhood ghouls and goblins as they exclaim “Trick or treat!”

Coming inside from these increasingly colder evenings, one will want to find a warm and inviting home to settle in for the Autumn weather.   Working with a wide palette of warm, and seasonal colors, as well as black and white, one can craft an entire house full of ambience that subtly adds to the season’s spirit without feeling like you live in “Halloweentown”. Incorporating vintage antiques for a bit of personality, using natural materials–particularly flora like branches and gourds–and curating the right furniture will help revitalize the rooms around your home.  Take a look at the Stickley Highlands Collection as the dark wood hughes, and classic mission styling is the very essence of warm and cozy nesting.

Preparing for Fall could be as simple as changing out a conventional chair with one that swivels or rocks. Another rocking chair that would help add these natural and warm-colored elements is the Harvey Ellis Rocker from Stickley. With a stunning hand-carved inlay of fine oak, the craftsmanship of Stickley excels here in preserving the grain and patterning of the natural wood, while the deep maroon cushion provides ample support and warm tones for days, perfect for the brisk fall mornings in front of the fire. 

Still not sure how warm decor can contribute to a new look around your house? Here’s where your style experts at Ennis Fine Furniture–your local, family-owned furniture store–have got you covered. Come into one of our Boise, Spokane or Richland locations today and speak with our team of experts and we’ll walk you through our entire custom design process, which ranges from custom fabrics, embroidery, woodwork and much more!
