Furniture, a Brand Like No Other...
Furniture can easily make or break any design and can play an important role in your homes style. A good piece of furniture can bring a room design together or confuse and ruin a theme just as quickly. Today we will discuss how you can select furniture that makes your room feel complete, and brings together the design of your home!
Size Does Matter
It's time to get out that measuring tape! When selecting your furniture make sure your looking at items that are properly sized for the space. Furniture that is too big will make a room feel cramped, while furniture that is too small can get lost in the mix. A good rule of thumb is to buy pieces that can easily be walked around. For instance, a smaller room would look good with a few chairs and a small loveseat. In a large room you can do something fun like a sectional or a large sofa and a love seat combination.
Use an Anchor
Have you ever walked into a room and there was the one piece of furniture that stood out and made a statement? It just goes to show how one fantastic item can give you the umph to take that room from good to great. Not sure what style you want to go with in a room? Look for furniture that speaks to you and build the rest of the room around that beauty.
Standing the Test of Time
Another factor to keep in mind is getting Furniture that lasts. When you are spending good money you want to make sure that these gems last in style and function. Picking pieces that act as chameleons in the different styles that come and go will make the purchase worth your while. Now, don't get me wrong, playing with color and fabric is still a must and there are tons of fabrics and styles that will stand the test of time but be sure you aren't picking a fabric because it's the in style. If that piece can pair with at least 3 different themes and you have yourself a winner. Bring in the design of the year through those less expensive accessories and keep the iconic classic style in your larger items.
Quality Over Quantity
Along the lines of standing the test of time, make sure your Furniture is good quality. I know it's tempting when you come across that inexpensive price tag but keep in mind the amount of bums that will sit on your couch in a given year? Do all of our tushies a favor and put a little more on the front end and it'll last on the back end. Personally, we are big fans of Norwalk Furniture for quality. An American made company that builds furniture built to withstand those twenty five cousins is worth a look.
Tie it All Together
Last, but definitely not least, is tying all of it together. One of our favorite ways to display Furniture and bring in the latest styles is by showcasing everything on a rug. By putting a rug with your furniture you will help to define the living space, add another level of finish, and display your unique style all in one.
Now my pretties go forth and furniture shop! If you are stuck or just want to play with hundreds of designs and fabrics on furniture, stop into our showroom. We love nothing more than a cup of coffee and a table full of fabric swatches and furniture books.
