Coffee Tables

Coffee tables are an essential part of any home décor style. We need them for their practical purpose just as much as we need them for their decor purposes. They are normally placed in the center of the living or family room over a rug or just on the ground. The coffee table is meant to compliment your sofas, rugs, wall décor and paint by tying them all together as the finishing touch to any home. They are also made to serve a practical purpose. If you plan on having one in your family room then it will most likely be the place to put your feet when having a conversation or watching a movie. It can be a place to play a card game or board game with your kids. A place to have snacks and drink during games and movies. Or maybe a place where your kids can get homework done and store their school supplies. When placed in a living room it can serve the purpose of holding décor items or maybe hold the occasional beverage while conversing with friends and guests. No matter where you place it will serve a great purpose. There are many questions

Correct Natural Fabrics for Upholstery

Natural fabrics consist of linen, leather, cotton, wool and silk. Each has its pros and cons as a material choice for a lounge suite. Linen – this light material does not fade easily and does not accumulate pills. Unfortunately, it wrinkles easily and shrinks if proper cleaning is not done. It also can’t handle pulling and tugging which means it is not ideal for children and pets. Cotton – this natural material does not easily fade and pill. It also has good resistance to wear. It does, however, wrinkle very easily and dirt such as soil and mud is difficult to clean out. Wool – this might not be the normal fabric to use. It isn’t the wool used to make jerseys and beanies but rather a harder thread that has been combined with synthetic material. Synthetic material reduces the amount of pilling that takes place and creates a more durable product. Leather – this is the favourite for most upholsterers. The hide is durable and can easily be cleaned at home without damaging or shrinking. It also has a stunning modern appeal that anyone could appreciate. Silk – this material is expensive and extremely difficult to clean without professional

Beautiful Lounge Chairs

There were some days when I pushed them in the corner, or sometimes place them in different rooms to make up for the constrained space problem that we were facing. However, my husband has been very considerate of them, and he made sure these lounge chairs are always in the right condition (perhaps the most compassionate action a man can ever do) and today, five years after that time I find these chairs to be playing an important role in our lives. Over the years life wasn’t the way it started, it improved, and we moved into our new house, a whole lot bigger than that apartment. This house was not only a special place for us but also for those chairs. In the years, we realized how important it was for us to communicate with each other at the end of the day, we understood that we’re married for a purpose, to share and make the best days, and what could be better than these lounge chairs? The two lounge chairs were always placed together, next to the window in room for a purpose- to be the place in the house where the couple can give each other the

Cot Beds

Cot size originates from the army cot or camp cot size which provides a sleeping surface of 30″ x 75″. Compare that to a standard twin size at 39″ x 75″ and its pretty easy to see that there is 9″ difference in width between the two. Consider that two of these beds in the same room would take up 18″ less space than two twin size beds. While cot size isn’t considered a standard bed size like twin, full, queen or king it offers dimensional advantages for a room using especially when most sizes of beds just won’t fit. This size of bed doesn’t have to be minimal in design or comfort. One of the manufacturers we work with Nomad Furniture has developed a series of beds with headboards as well as a cot size daybed series. These beds incorporate a slat support system and are also available with customizable options that can increase the height of the headboard or designed for more space beneath the bed. Optional bed drawers on castors can be ordered which are independent of the bed system and simply roll beneath the beds. Our local mattress manufacturer has also designed a comfortable daily use

Aspects of Gothic Furniture

Most pieces of furniture found in this style are often made out of wood such as mahogany or oak. This ensures that the furniture will last a long time. It was also the most expensive material to get furniture made out of so you were considered to be quite wealthy if you owned one of these pieces in the Victorian era. Carvings are a big part of this style. Carvings often had detailed faces, gargoyles or floral designs. These designs were often placed inside a panel that was geometric to the rest of the panels. Similarity between the sides showed the craft of the carpenter and proved that you had quality furniture. Protrusions and elongated parts gave the pieces a drama and elegance that made it stand out. This created the drama in high back chairs which had an extra high back as well as in cabinets that had the frame lengthened and carved with detailed decorations. Storage was an important aspect for the wealthier people. There are many pieces that used to reach up to the ceiling so that it could have added shelving. The idea of having large furniture and ornaments in your house gave you high status.
