Cabbage Patch: Home-Style Cooking

August 20, 2014 12:03 pm

High quality, home-style cooking with a modern twist is the name of the game at Cabbage Patch. Their farm-to-table philosophy means they use organic, all natural, locally sourced products, including Niman Ranch beef, which is humanely raised and free of hormones and antibiotics.

A daily vegan soup is on the menu, as are some delectably fresh salads like the Fuju Apple & Arugula with bleu cheese, candied pecans and sherry vinaigrette. Sandwiches include a Grilled Veggie with eggplant, zucchini, & parmesan, and a Grilled Chicken with wild greens, tomato, parmesan & balsamic vinaigrette. Chicken Kebabs, Rotisserie Chicken and Pan Roasted Organic Salmon are also featured.

Cabbage Patch is open Monday through Friday for lunch and dinner, Saturday lunch only.

Where to Shop Modern Home Furnishings Online

August 13, 2014 12:02 pm

Few eras had as definitive a design aesthetic as the 1950s and 1960s. The mid-century modern styles made popular in these decades are seeing a major revival in modern furniture styles, channeling the clean lines, pin legs, and rich materials that devoted fans love. Here are two great websites to shop for modern home furnishings and decor.

West Elm
Popular home goods store West Elm carries mid-century modern inspired furniture and cozy, simple home decor items for fairly affordable prices. Many of the credenzas, chairs, and dressers are almost exact replicas of the rectangular teak creations from that era, and the rugs, duvet covers, and other textiles feature bold geometric prints that accent each piece perfectly.

Dwell Studios
Dwell Studios carries home goods with a bit higher price tags, but the sleek lines and high quality leather and upholstery make them completely worth the price to mid-century furniture devotees. The website carries chairs and sofas with modern style’s signature slender legs and low, square shapes, as well as decor accessories like ‘70s-inspired sculptures and decanters that look like they came straight from a vintage bar cart.
