Bragging: Roger + Chris Higgins Sofa in One of New Orleans' Hottest Restaurants

By Chris Stout-Hazard

(Please forgive us this indulgence.)

Focusing on quality and experience rather than volume.

We're proud to be a part of the stylish New Orleans restaurant Square Root. The second project by chef Phillip Lopez and manager Maximilian Ortiz (their first being the highly-regarded Root), Square Root has just been named one of NOLA's Best New Restaurants for 2014.

With seating for only sixteen and an extensive chef's tasting menu, Square Root focuses on quality and experience rather than volume. (Not unlike our strategy.) Our Higgins leather Chesterfield sofa - in Firenze Smoke leather with our optional tight, tufted seat - graces the luxurious upstairs lounge - dubbed "Root Squared" where cocktails and small plates are offered.

We're excited to check out Square Root/Root Squared in person the next time we visit New Orleans. Visit the restaurant's website or read the profile in The Times-Picayune.

How to Clean Velvet Furniture
Velvet fabric can be a bit trickier to clean than other fabrics because, in addition to removing the stain, you must take care to avoid "crushing" the nap of the fiber. Here are some tips to help you successfully remove stains without damaging your beautiful furniture.
Consider costs carefully when deciding to move or renovate home
As the housing market continues its gradual recovery, families seeking more space and nicer appointments are weighing their options. Selling and moving to a larger home might offer a more immediate solution, but many are opting instead to stick around and renovate their current house.
