Boring furniture is everywhere and it’s easy to buy. People often find themselves purchasing the plain suite with the intention of ‘jazzing’ it up with a few throw cushions.
I challenge you to be brave and to create statement furniture in your home. It’s easy to create a WOW piece of furniture, and this can do so much for your room. Here are some tips to help get you started.
1. Colour – What is a colour that brings you so much joy? Easy, cover your suite, an armchair or an ottoman in a fabric of that colour.
2. Accessories – Keep your accessories a little more understated to let the furniture sing!
3. Lighting – Whether it’s natural or artificial, ensure that your furniture is well lit. Pendant lighting hung directly over a suite can look absolutely stunning. HOWEVER – if you’re placing your furniture close to a window, make sure that your upholstery fabric has a lightfastness rating of 5 or above on the Blue Wool Scale. You don’t want your lovely new furniture fading within 6 months!
4. Let your creativity flow – don’t let yourself get too restricted by your original design direction. Try to let go of your own guidelines a little – this is where the magic can happen!
