An abundance of home furnishings can protect you when Dracula claws through the dry wall because your blood smells like monster candy. Obstacle up with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of home furnishings and décor at Home & Abroad on Atlantic Avenue.
Founded by a duo of devoted globetrotters, Home & Abroad outfits abodes with handcrafted and imported goods from around the world. In December, their award-winning window display refashioned a collection of wrought-iron table lamps ($15–$95) into tiny hot air balloons. Inside, crafty-patterned cotton cushions ($20) conspired with couches to create cozy and inviting spots to thwart their owners' attempts to go jogging or invent cold fusion. Home & Abroad helps fill empty rooms with sturdy, rustic furniture made from sustainable hardwoods and repurposed copies of Walden.
