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.
