tre flowers

Summer may be long gone but sports fans have something to look forward to this fall: football season is back! The 2019 NFL season kicked off this weekend with the Chicago Bears hosting the Green Bay Packers. This marks the 100th season of the National Football League.

How to Pick the Best Dining Table for Your Home

September 4, 2019

bent dining table

Just like a sofa is the focal point of your living room, a dining table plays a huge role in your dining room. It’s the setting for countless dinner parties, late-night cram sessions, arts and crafts projects, and deep discussions. A spot where you share tea, cookies, jokes, gossip, and apologies. 

With dining tables playing such a huge role in our lives, how do we find our table soulmate? When searching for the perfect dining table, keep size, shape, material, lifestyle, and style in mind.

One size does not fit all

Grab the ol’ measuring tape to find out exactly what size of table your space can fit. Make sure to factor in room for chairs, walkways, and doorways. 

Small Spaces – For smaller spaces, rectangular tables work well. Because of their slim fit, they slide easily against a wall and are simple to navigate around when pulled out. Even better, a rectangular table can fit up to six guests.

Small spaces are also great for a classic round tabletop, which takes up less space because of its lack of corners. 

tanya round dining table

The round shape of the Tanya Dining Table allows for easy flow in your living space.

Large Spaces Larger spaces give you more freedom, but sometimes they can be a bit intimidating. To fill a large space, opt for a long, rectangular table that fits at least six people and has the option to extend. 

bent dining table

The smoky Bent Dining Table is a unique option with its matching Bent Bench to add extra seating to your dining table.

Average-Sized Spaces If your shape is neither big or small, the choice is yours! Just make sure to keep balance in mind. 

Pick a shape, any shape 

When it comes to shape, you have a few options to work with. Deciding on shape depends on the size of your room and what kind of lines you prefer: straight and angular, or soft and curved?

Rectangular Rectangular tables tend to fit the most people and mimic the natural shape of a dining room. 

malibu dining table

The Malibu Dining Table offers plenty of elbow and leg space for guests. 

Oval An oval-shaped table works best in a long, rectangular room.

Round – Round tables work well in more compact rooms. They tend to create a cozier, more dynamic dining feel and are great for small group settings. 

Square – Square shaped tables are great for smaller rooms that are looking to save space, as they can be pushed into a corner.

Investing in material

An important factor to consider when buying a dining table is its material and construction. A dining table is an investment and you want it to be enjoyed for years to come. 

Wood – Wooden tables bring a natural, down-to-earth look to a room. Solid wood is hardy and its craftsmanship won’t disappoint you. If you’re on a budget, you can look at more affordable options such as MDF or wood veneer, which are strong contestants in look and quality. 

Glass – Glass tables are a great option for smaller spaces because their transparency opens up a room. Their polished look also tends to make a space look chicer. 

Marble – Marble tables are cool and refined. Their heavy nature gives a look of permanence and if they’re taken care of properly, they will be admired for years. 

Lavastone – Lavastone is a natural and indestructible material. Unlike marble, it is also nonporous, which means you won’t have to stress if there’s a spill.

sable dining table

If you’re looking for a unique and tough material, the lava stone Sable Dining Table is for you. 

Matching your lifestyle

Something else to consider when picking a dining table is your social life. How many people live in your home, and how many come and visit? First, factor in the number of members in your household. If there’s only a handful of you, something on the snug, smaller side is great for conversations over meals or work.

jinxx dining table

The marble-and-acacia Jinx Dining Table doesn’t compromise style with its comfortable, round look. 

Next, consider how often you have guests over. Do you have a lot of family visit from out of town? Do you enjoy hosting game nights or dinner parties? If this is the case, you’re probably looking for something more communal, whether that be a longer table or something with the option to extend.

Matching your (excellent) style

Arguably the best part about picking furniture is matching it to the unique style of your home! While the rooms in your home don’t have to match completely, it does create a visually-appealing look of cohesion, especially when your dining room opens up to your kitchen or living room. 

If you have space, you can consider going for a dining table that also works as a statement piece, such as the Bird Dining Table, which is anything but simple. Its solid oak tabletop features a live edge, giving each table its own unique design and character. 

bird dining table

Picking the perfect dining table for your home is a lot easier when you take size, shape, lifestyle, and style into consideration to narrow down your options. At the end of the day, it’s not about the table at all, it’s about the meaningful gatherings that take place.

A LOOK INSIDE THE GREEK BY ANATOLI FROM RESTAURANTEUR IANI MAKRIS

August 30, 2019

The Greek by Anatoli: A place where pairing Greek food with hip hop makes sense.

Everything, from the way their kitchen produces incredibly tasty food, the traditional-but-untraditional decor, and the riotous vibes that pump out of the front doors and onto the Yaletown and Gastown sidewalks every weekend speaks to the owners’ attitudes. They’re fun-loving, caring people from an energetic Greek family and they know — to say the least — how to have a great time. 

We spoke with Moe’s Ambassador Iani Makris, one of the part-owners and son of Anatoli Souvlaki’s founders, Thomas Makris and Helen Babalos. He shed light on why they use Moe’s for the furniture and decor, their creative edge in the business, and his own life goals. 

Can you tell us a bit about yourself and how you got involved in the industry?

Iani Makris: I was born and raised in a restaurant in North Vancouver, Anatoli Souvlaki. My parents started it the year I was born and we lived above it. I bought my father out of the business ten years ago, 5 years ago [my little brother, cousin, and I] decided to open a restaurant in Yaletown. We called it The Greek by Anatoli. Eventually, we took a shot at Gastown, too. So now we have three restaurants in Vancouver. 

I’m a father of two — I delivered my second baby in the back of our car on the way to the hospital. I’m an avid hockey fan and player and I shop at Moe’s. They’ve been good to me for the 25 years I’ve known them.”

I know in the restaurant business a lot of what makes a restaurant successful is the food, but second is the environment. Tell us about the environment you created, what kind of design elements you’ve used?

IM: “We were lucky in our Yaletown and Gastown locations, there’s a lot of exposed brick which is true to both areas. Red and white isour theme, my grandmother is from Asia Minor (what is now Turkey), she’s from that area and it’s warmer, which makes sense with the red. We’ve kept that theme throughout two of the three restaurants. The sheep is also very fitting. It’s awesome, really cute.” 

Here, Iani is referring to a sheep statue curated by Moe’s for The Greek. It’s a lighthearted, off-beat piece perfect for the restaurant’s fun-loving nature.

IM: “We wanted to open a restaurant where we can serve our Greek food with hip hop. A lot of inspiration comes from Mykonos — open-air bars with string lights running through the restaurant. You get that feeling when you walk in — that we cater to a fresher, younger crowd. We’re not your traditional blue and white cabana.” 

What does family mean to you and how does that play a part in your career?

IM: “Growing up in a restaurant, my employees are like my family. I’ve been surrounded by family in the business as well as outside. Family is very important to us as Greeks. Have you seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding? It’s very true to Greek culture. 

I was raised by my grandmother alongside my parents, so a lot of the recipes that come through this place are from her and my father.”

Iani goes on to tell us how his mother provides him with the ‘life goals’ of being as happy as her every day and to be a supportive, positive influence. She is, he describes, the entrepreneur of his family and is a strong woman and teacher. His younger brother, however, was the driving force behind getting Iani out of the kitchen, into the front-of-house and eventually owning their own place.

IM: “We have two chefs, one Cypriot and one Albanian,  both trained in greek cooking. The Cypriot adds a lot of myth to our cooking, gives us a bit of an edge. So, Turkey, Greece, Cyprus and Albania — we’re a hybrid.” 

The Turkish, Greek, Cypriot and Albanian influences do give The Greek a creative edge. Their food, as well as their ambience, make it a restaurant unlike any other in Vancouver. Their distinctive, homey-yet-urban vibe is, in part, created by the decor from Moe’s. 

Moe’s can provide an edgy, modern look (as we’ve witnessed through Aleem Kassam’s eyes) or a warm, distinctive and fun vibe perfect for a place like The Greek.  The takeaway? The pieces at Moe’s can be moulded to fit your place’s attitude. 

You’ve got quite the history with Moe’s. Tell me what your relationship has been like with them? 

IM: “I’m an entrepreneur and Moe Senior is quite the entrepreneur, too. I grew up with [his son] Moe Junior, we played baseball and hockey together, we had sleepovers. Now, I admire [Sarah and Moe Junior’s] business practices and hope to one day be in their position as well. Life goals.”

What’s the ambition right now?

IM: “The ambition should always be to expand and restaurants are all I know. But you should never look too far ahead — opening these three restaurants haven’t been without their challenges.” 

Iani tells us he “works to live, not lives to work” — and this is obvious through his attitude, his love for his family, and the incredibly fun restaurants he’s fostered.

The Ultimate Guide to Cleaning Furniture

It’s almost September. You know what that means. Back-to-school. The beginning of autumn. Before you know it, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be right around the corner. And with the holidays comes preparation, including cleaning your furniture in time for the arrival of your guests.

Luckily, we’ve put together the ultimate furniture cleaning guide to prepare you! Read our following care guide carefully, so that your Moe’s furniture looks brand new every day. 

General Care Tips & Tricks

Vacuums are your best friend – Vacuum fabric regularly using the upholstery attachment and crevice tool of your vacuum. Not only will this keep the fabric clean, but it will make it last longer because dust and dirt cause quicker wear. 

On rotation – While flipping a cushion won’t make a stain disappear, regularly flipping and rotating seat cushions and back pillows distributes wear and increases the lifetime of your piece.

Fluff it – Fluff feather and down cushions frequently to keep their fluffy cloud appearance. To prevent the annoying sensation of feathers poking through the fabric, unzip the cushion cover and vacuum in between the cover and cushion using an upholstery attachment. 

Smooth it Some attached cushions may stretch or wrinkle over time with use. Recover their appearance by smoothing the fabric down and tucking it into the sides or back of the seat–just like new! 

Leave it for the professionals – DIY is great, but sometimes some fabrics require a little extra TLC. Getting furniture cleaned by a professional upholstery cleaning service periodically is well worth the money.

Protection & Warnings

Use chemicals with caution – Be careful when using household cleaning products around your furniture, including fabric fresheners, as some chemicals may stain and damage natural fibers and fabrics.

Keep away completely – Keep sharp objects away from furniture if you want to avoid permanent scratches. Watch out for Velcro as well, as it can cause pulling in fabrics.  

Keep it shaded – Sunbeams are great for catnaps but don’t place furniture in direct sunlight. UV rays will fade and damage fabric, leather, and wood furniture. 

Nobody likes a sunburn, and that includes the Messina Leather Sofa. Place it away from direct sunlight.

Spills & Spot Cleaning

Blot – If a spill occurs, immediately blot the fabric with a clean, absorbent towel. Blot from the outside to the middle of the affected area to avoid moisture rings. 

Leave it for the professionals – For best results, have stains professionally taken care of by an upholstery cleaning service.

Spot test – If you decide to spot clean on your own, please test any cleaning agents on a small inconspicuous area of the fabric first. 

clay sectional

No need to worry about spills or spots with the Clay Sectional, which offers total barrier protection.  

Pilling 

Pilling got you down? Don’t worry, pilling does not necessarily mean your fabric is falling apart. Pilling simply happens as a result of natural friction on a fabric surface, causing the fabric’s fibers to loosen and tangle. 

The best way to beat pilling is by regularly shaving the fabric with a furniture or sweater shaver to restore the look. Over time, pilling will decrease and eventually stop completely–hurrah!

Leather Care

Leather is a popular fabric for furniture due to its high-quality and durability. Who doesn’t want a piece that will last a lifetime? 

Wipe leather furniture down regularly with a clean, dry microfiber cloth. For stubborn patches of dust, dampen the cloth with a small amount of water. Do not let water soak into the leather. Keep a leather-specific cleaner on hand for emergency spills.

Helpful tip #1 – If a spill occurs, do not apply water or try to wash a grease spot. Over time, the grease spot should begin to blend into the leather.

Helpful tip #2 – Use a chamois or clean finger to gently buff scratches. The friction and heat from rubbing, in addition to the natural oils in your hands, will help redistribute the finish in the surrounding areas to cover the scratch. 

Top-grain leather will wear with a unique worn patina over time, making the Ramsay Leather Chaise a one-of-a-kind piece for your home. 

Fabric Care

When discussing fabric care, the category includes the following upholstery fabrics: 

  1. Wool
  2. Viscose
  3. Cotton
  4. Polyester 

The best way to care for fabric is to develop a regular vacuuming routine using an upholstery attachment to get in between the crevices. You know the strange vacuum attachment that no one ever uses? Cleaning fabric furniture is what this piece is designed for–so use it!  

As for spills, avoid the urge to scrub at all costs. Instead, simply place a soft, absorbent cloth or paper towel over the spill and allow it to work its magic. After the spill has dried, assess the stain again. If needed, mix a small dollop of dishwashing detergent with water and apply to the stain. Gently blot the area and air dry. 

Time is of the essence when cleaning up a fabric spill, such as on the Evora Arm Chair. 

Velvet Care

Velvet is a popular fabric known for its smooth good looks. Like other fabrics, it should be vacuumed regularly using the fabric attachment on a vacuum. Vacuuming is especially important for velvet because it keeps it looking tidy and the fibers standing up. 

One common complaint with velvet are “crush marks,” long silvery lines that run through the fabric. You’ll often notice these when a velvet piece first arrives in its packaging, a heavy item has been stacked on top of velvet, or after a long TV marathon (hey, no shame). Don’t worry, these crush marks are easy to combat. Crush marks can be removed using a steamer to gently lift the pile back up and eliminate the creases. Steam regularly to keep your velvet looking fresh as heck. 

For spills, follow the same care instructions as for fabric above. Make sure to work as quickly as possible and to avoid scrubbing. For any major accidents, consult with an upholstery cleaning company. 

Wood Care

Wood is a natural material that brings charm and warmth to any space. When you look at wooden furniture you think: classic and sturdy. Treat your wooden furniture right and it’ll be good back to you. 

Wipe wooden furniture down regularly with a clean, dry cloth to remove dust. Use warm water and mild soap to clean. Be careful not to soak the surface for long periods of time. Wipe away any remaining moisture with a dry cloth. 

Hardwood surfaces such as on the Florence Rectangular Dining Table and Deco Dining Chair just need a good wipe down. 

Keep wooden furniture away from prolonged direct sunlight as this can result in “spotting.” Helpful tip #3 – To reduce this effect, you can place a tablecloth over the surface to shield it from the sun.

Don’t place extremely hot or cold items on wooden furniture either, as they may warp the original surface. 

Add a layer of protective wax to your wooden furniture every season to keep it preserved, shiny, and happy. 

Lastly, be mindful of the fact that our beloved wooden furniture will age over time, just like us! Wood may lighten or darken and acquire new characteristics.

Vinyl/Polyurethane Care

Vinyl or polyurethane fabric is a durable, lightweight, and waterproof fabric that looks like a cross between plastic and leather. 

Clean vinyl fabric on a monthly basis to remove any build up of dust, dirt, food, or oils that may damage the fabric over time. Use a mild soap mixed in a very low concentration with water as a cleaning solution for vinyl fabric.

If you want to take it to the next level, you can use a vinyl conditioner monthly. Vinyl is a semi-porous material and a conditioner will help moisturize the fabric, as well as create a protective barrier. Helpful tip #4 – Using a humidifier in your home will protect vinyl fabric from drying out!

Marble Care

Marble is a natural material that is heavy, cool-to-the-touch, and oh-so-elegant. Unfortunately, marble is also very porous and sensitive. This means avoiding spills at all costs, but if they do occur, wiping them up immediately with a soft cloth. 

Avoid cleaning products around marble, especially all-natural ones made with lemon or vinegar, as marble is particularly sensitive to acid. 

Enjoy the Coasters are mandatory with marble tabletops like the Jinxx Dining Table. 

Concrete Care

We love concrete because it’s so low-maintenance! Any cleaning pro would agree that a lot of things just require a bit of elbow grease.  

Wipe concrete down regularly with water and a mild cleaning detergent. For a deeper clean, create a household spray of one part bleach and two parts water. Leave the spray on for 5 minutes and then wipe down with water again.

Avoid using traditional heavy acid cleaners which are designed for commercial use and are too corrosive for concrete furniture.

The best things in life require minimal cleaning–like the Pillar Cement Stool. 

Metal Care

Metal is another material that falls into the low-maintenance category. Due to its smooth, tough surface, all you really need is soapy water and a rag. 

The main worry with metal furniture is if it chips or scratches because then you may have to deal with rust or corrosion. If rusting occurs, clean the affected area with a wire brush or steel wool. Recoat the repaired area with an appropriate finish for metal surfaces to stop deterioration. 

Glass Care

Glass pieces tend to have a polished look (pun intended). Luckily, cleaning them is a breeze. Simply grab some Windex and paper towel or cloth, spray, wipe, and repeat! 

Wool Rug Care

Wool rugs will please eyes and feet alike. Like cushions and pillows, rugs should be rotated periodically to reduce potential fading, as well as uneven wear. 

For the first 2-3 months, wool rugs benefit from frequent vacuuming to help reduce the amount of shedding that occurs. This is especially true for rugs with short napped tufts.

The wool Calypso Rug is soft on the feet and durable enough to stand up to an active home.

For spills, blot immediately with a dry white cloth. Do not scrub or rub as this can break down the fibers and damage the pile. Continue blotting until all the liquid is absorbed. Blot again with a rag dampened with cold water or a cleaning product specifically designed for wool. Place another dry cloth over the spot and apply pressure, repeating until all moisture has been absorbed. 

Sheepskin Care

Cozy sheepskin is a popular fabric for rugs, throws, and pillows alike. But let’s be honest, those fluffy white tendrils look a little intimidating to deal with once a spill happens (which it will). 

Give your sheepskin some love by regularly brushing it to restore its silky appearance. Minor stains can be blotted with a damp cloth. Give your sheepskin a deep clean by taking it to the dry cleaner when it’s time (and you’ll know when it’s time). 

The Hunter Wool Pillow is softer than a cloud–just make sure to show it care. 

Cleaning your furniture is often one of those tasks that fall at the bottom of a to-do list, but given that furniture is such a focal point in a home, we should be cleaning it a bit more regularly. Give your pieces a bit of TLC, and they’ll be glowing this fall.

Everything You Need to Know About Modular Sofas

August 23, 2019

nathaniel sofa

Today we’re going to be talking about modular sofas. Modular sofas are becoming more and more popular for small and large spaces alike. But before we dive into why that is, let’s review what “modular” really means. 

“Modular design” is a term that is used when a whole unit is made up of smaller modules, or pieces (like a pizza!) So a modular sofa is a sofa broken up into chair-sized pieces like chaises, corner seats, and ottomans. These pieces can be arranged to create a U shaped or L shaped sofa configuration, or they can be spaced out to create smaller seating arrangements. Handy, right?

The advantages of modular sofas

1. Ultimate customization – A modular sofa allows you to create the perfect seating arrangement for your room. Each piece is sold separately from a series, like our new Tumble Collection, so you can decide on how many seats you need and what size and shape you are going for. You can even mix and match colors as with our Nathaniel Collection, which comes in light grey, red, green, and blue. 

2. Adaptable to any room – Modular sofas utilize the space they are given. If the sofa doesn’t fit the way you intended, you can simply remove one module and place it in a different way or even in a different room. 

3. Allows for quick design changes – Modular sofas are an easy and quick way to change the layout of a room at no cost. 

4. Fits the needs of your guests – A quick connection of all of the modules creates a full sofa so that your guests can sit down and spend time together. You can also smoothly detach individual seats if someone prefers some personal space. The ottoman can be used as a footrest, seat, or table top. And if anyone needs a place to crash, modules can be put together to create separate and comfortable beds. 

5. Easy to assemble – Each module can be easily connected,  disconnected, and moved around a room. This ease of assembly is a great feature for design changes and moving.

Don’t be fooled by its ethereal glow. Our Clay Dream Modular Sectional is the ultimate family sofa. It’s made with stain-resistant and moisture-repellent technology so that you don’t have to worry about spills.

The look of a modular sofa

Modular sofas are designed with simplicity in mind, like our Luxe Signature Modular Sectional, made with buttery brown top-grain leather. The individual pieces are simple in form, and together, they create a harmonious whole. Because of this, they give a room an ultra-modern look and feel. 

Modular sofas have a solid, uniform look with deep seating and low backs. Due to their expansive layout, they tend to anchor down a room. And as the focal point in your space, they have a welcoming look that invites you to sprawl out and get comfy. With limitless space, they’re the ultimate lounge area. The result is a sofa that is both massive and cozy at the same time: the best of both worlds, right?

The best part about these structures is that they’re anything but fixed. As we’ve already discussed, modular sofas are highly customizable, which means you get a fresh, dynamic space every time.
