Whether you’re a dad or shopping for one in your family this Father’s Day, you can make your home staycation-worthy with furniture that encourages rest and relaxation. Isn’t a little R&R what every dad needs most? With today’s hectic lifestyles, a comfortable chair (or sofa) and a good read are all it takes to unplug and unwind. Here are a few of our favorite ideas for pampering dads on their special day—and throughout the year.

The Classic Gift

Doesn’t Dad deserve the best seat in the house? For encouraging rest and relaxation, you can’t go wrong with a classic leather recliner like the Shasta. Photo: Hooker Furniture

While the Shasta Recliner adds instant character to a room, its sumptuous comfort is what truly sets this motion furniture apart.

Once he has the perfect place to put his feet up, every dad needs a good book or magazine.

This Father’s Day, consider giving him a gift card to his favorite bookstore or a subscription to a magazine about a topic he loves. Want to go the extra mile? Do a little research and arrange to have the college magazine from his alma mater delivered each month or subscribe to the newspaper from his hometown.

From classic traditional styling to streamlined modern looks, our function-driven home office collections make working from home easier. The House Blend group allows him to create his own unique configuration to match his workstyle.

The Unexpected Gift

Featuring dual power, the Savion Power Motion Sofa was introduced by Hooker Upholstery at the April international High Point Market and will be coming soon to retail stores. The Savion features classic Chesterfield styling with the added benefit of unexpected motion functionality.

The Thoughtful Gift

If the man in your family has bad knees or limited mobility, a lift chair is a great way to make his life easier. The good news is Bradington Young’s stylish Ryder Lift/Recliner provides a stylish alternative to the medical-looking lift chairs in the marketplace. Its fashionable silhouette is so appealing, no one but him will know it has power lift capability.

The Best Gift

Another can’t-go-wrong gift is the gift of time. Spending time with Dad is always in fashion, the right size and exactly what he wanted!

This year, as you shop for Father’s Day, think about ways to bring more R & R to your dad’s daily life. And when you do visit, make sure he gets the best chair in the house.

How to Bring the Spirit of Blue Hawaii Home

The Melange Turquoise Crackle Chest channels the spirit of Aloha and blue Hawaii.

Blue Hawaii Spirit

When it comes to tropical vacations and inspiring locales, it’s hard to top Hawaii. America’s 50th state offers bountiful inspiration for decorating and creating a restorative lifestyle. Here’s how to bring the spirit of Hawaii to your home.

Reflecting the softest shades of island twilight, the exquisite Lia Drawer Chest can be dressed up or down.

Maybe it’s the aqua coastline, the famous Elvis movie or the even more famous cocktail, but the term Blue Hawaii makes perfect sense. No matter which island you visit, you can expect turquoise waters stretching to meet an even-bluer sky.

From aqua to indigo, blue is an easy color to use in decorating and is firmly on-trend. The Spectrum Chest goes brilliant with sapphire blue.

Bradington-Young’s Pierce Sofa captures the beauty of ocean-inspired hues yet is neutral enough to complement a gray or beige-based room color palette. And its sumptuous leather cover is durable enough to withstand active lifestyles.

As you create your living spaces, consider incorporating the spirit of Aloha.

While the word “Aloha” is best-known for meaning hello and goodbye, it’s also the word for love and peace. Native Hawaiians will tell you that “Aloha” represents a unique concept for which there is no equivalent word in the English language. It’s a way of life best described as: being patient and kind, in unity and harmony with your real self, kind to all life forms, and humble.

Add a little beach inspiration to your space with the fresh finishes of our Sunset Point Collection. Dining chairs with a hint of island blue add a laid-back vibe that you’ll never tire of.

For most of us, island living is only experienced on vacation, yet it’s a feeling that lasts far longer. If you’re looking for fresh inspiration to update your home décor, go beyond clichéd floral prints and leaf patterns and choose furnishings that capture the essential beauty of tropical destinations such as Hawaii. As you surround yourself with meaningful furniture and décor, you’ll be on your way to capturing the spirit of Aloha.

Mother’s Day Style: Bring it Home

The easy elegance of the Elixir Round Dining Table makes family gatherings for Mother’s Day even more comfortable and inviting–and we all know nothing makes Mom happier than being together. Photo: Hooker Furniture

Let’s face it — Mom wrote the book on style — and it shows in every single room of the home she’s worked so hard to create. This Mother’s Day, surprise her with that chic bar cart she’s had her eye on (a great gift from the entire family), or a fashionable new easy chair for a late-night read or FaceTime with a son, daughter (or grandchild) who couldn’t be there in person to celebrate.

To honor her role as official family chef, gather and bind some of her favorite recipes to create a delicious family keepsake and gift, and include it with the bar cart.

The Sassafrass Exposed Wood Chair has a transitional flair and laid-back comfort. Add to her relaxing evening routine with a gift of comfortable slippers, a few favorite candles, a pair of theater tickets or a travel book on a favorite destination dream. Photo: Sam Moore

A side of something sweet and a big serving of style will be the icing on the cake: Mom will adore the Bedroom Belle Semainier chest for her dressing area, or the Melange Nia End Table for her favorite sitting area. Photos: Hooker Furniture and Country Living

Still searching for the unforgettable gift? Plant her favorite rose bush variety in the back yard, or plant a collection of herbs he’ll savor in the kitchen all year long. Or, show Mom she’s your hero all year long with a monthly delivery of her favorite flowers or monthly spa visits for a well-deserved dose of luxury. Best gift ever? Find her oldest childhood friend and invite them for a rendezvous to reconnect over dinner. (Where Mom shows off her new wine cabinet).

Warm and rustic, the Crafted Bar Cabinet by Hooker Furniture will be ideal for family gatherings both large and small…and we know there’s nothing that makes Mom’s heart smile more! Photo: Hooker Furniture

From rustic to luxe, and from classic to chic, chose a gift for Mom that reflects her inimitable style. Photo: Country Living.
