The Study Zone

We all have varying personalities and learning styles. While most children have the ability to learn in a variety of settings, helping them understand their learning strengths builds confidence. Most students bravely adapt new learning styles once they have developed a strong foundation. Creating a Study Zone that specifically addresses the needs of your child's learning behaviour is a great way to encourage healthy habits for your little (or big) ones. Check out our latest blog post for helpful tips on identifying the type of learner your child is and how you can create a great study space for them!

The Drop Zone

For some, the school year has just started. For others, the big day is just around the corner!

And once school begins, so do games like "Backpack Dash and Disappear," a daily faceoff between clutter and calm.

Without a plan to corral the transition between school and home, expect the frustration of lost homework, messy rooms, and sometimes, sheer disorder.  

That’s why we’ve curated a pile of tips to clear clutter and avert accidents in potential chaos zones like your home entrance, kitchen, and other living spaces.

The Family Command Center

Back-To-School shifts the pace at home from relaxed summer rhythms to lists, schedules, routines.  Wake up. Get Moving. Stop. Repeat.

During the school year, things can fall between the cracks. The kids lose stuff. You forget important meetings, or rely on relentless e-notifications that break your nerves.  It all places stress on family life.  

What if you could plan a peaceful school year?  In the first of our 3-part series for Back to School, we'll explore the great benefits of a Family Command Center. Read on for details!

Am I Really an Artist?

How do I know whether I am a real artist? Am I good enough to enter a competition? 
Questions like these often trouble developing youth artists. 
 
In 2021, Alyssa Pinder won the Grand Prize in our youth Art From The Heart competition for Fading Waters, a seascape featuring a mother and baby sea turtle in a threatened marine environment. 
 
Learn how Alyssa overcame her fears. Having faith in herself has helped her to blossom into an award-winning young Bahamian artist, now pursuing a full-time career in the arts.  
 
You'll love her encouraging path from exploration to self-fulfillment, and find all the inspiration you need to join our 2023 Art From The Heart Competition.

Candles for a Cause

Christmas and candles are a cosy tradition, bringing light and warmth to the holidays. And yet, they can be so much more, as we've discovered with our Candles of Hope. They can be a source of light, hope and promise to a child in need, and that's just what the Charity of Hope Foundation strives to do.

Explore the magic in the making with our beautifully aromatic, 100% Bahamian-made candles. Learn about the giving force behind them and how you can play an important role in helping to light the guiding path for children in The Bahamas.

Emerging Stronger

We have changed, and the evolution was intentional. With over 30 years of industry experience, we were still hungry to compete, collaborate, and revitalise our commitment to our customers, community, and country.

We entered a defining season in the way a caterpillar becomes a butterfly. Few events in nature rival the drama of a shape-shifting butterfly pressing through its cocoon, unfurling new wings. From radical transformation it emerges in strength and splendour.

Furniture Plus shares the delight of transforming spaces that enhance your home and lifestyle. We understand the rhythms of change. We have undertaken our own metamorphosis and emerged stronger and better for you.
