Relaxed furniture can help you slow down and unwind

15 Mar

Relaxed furniture can help you slow down and unwind.

Home is where relaxation should be key, especially since most of us live busier lives than ever before. Designing your home for maximum relaxation is a great strategy to help you find peace and calm when you enter your home environment.

  • Focus on purchasing pieces of furniture – especially your upholstered sofas and chairs – that help you create a soft and gentle living space:
  • Less structured
  • More rounded edges than square corners
  • Well cushioned
  • Soft, sensuous fabrics
  • Comfortable construction
  • No-fuss, informal slip covers

 

 

 

 

Finish off your relaxed furniture with other home elements that can help you feel more relaxed including:

  • Soft lighting
  • Calming paint colors
  • Natural materials and colors
  • Puffy throw pillows
  • Silky rugs (maybe even a shaggy rug or faux fur rug!)
  • Soothing scents created by candles and fresh flowers
  • Translucent window fashions

In the bedroom, soften your bed with an upholstered headboard. Add a sumptuous duvet, lots of comfortable pillows and lighting that can be dimmed.

Adding relaxed furniture and accessories can help you feel calm and rested – and actually make you feel more at home in your home. For more ideas or for help with your next design project, please contact the team at Delux Drapery & Shade Co..

Lounge Chairs Are Comfortable Seating Choices You Can Lean Into

Lounge chairs are comfortable seating choices you can lean into.

If you think lounge chairs are a thing of the past, think again! They are new again and come in so many up-to-date loungechairs3styles, materials and colors. And who can imagine a more comfortable addition to your living room or great room?

Lounge, sprawl, and stretch out. There are so many reasons to add a relaxing chair for comfy living: Give yourself a needed break and take time to watch TV, read a book, look out at a beautiful view or listen to music.

loungechairs2Big, dark brown, battered leather is the stereotype image for a lounge chair, but there’s so much more. Today’s chairs can be more petite, with wingback or modern sleek designs or shaped more like chaise lounges.

Lounge chairs come in loads of fabrics, including prints and light colors. Some have wood or chrome detailing, some come with welting, nail heads or tufting, and some have a swivel or rocker feature.

Things to consider:

  • Plan your chair’s placement so there’s plenty of room for movement around it.loungechairs4
  • Place a table nearby for snacks and beverages.
  • Add a lamp if you plan to read while lounging.
  • Make sure the lounge chair is the appropriate size for the room. If your other furniture is small, select a chair that complements this scale.

Add a lounge chair for a new tilt on seating in your home. Then lie back and relax!

Masculine Style In Honor of Father’s Day

16 Jun

In honor of Father’s Day, we thought we’d choose a subject fathers can relate to, which is masculine interior design. Masculine1But for the non-fathers, and non-males out there, we got you covered too. Even though masculine style in interior design is mostly associated with males, it’s definitely not exclusive to them (sorry, guys!); Masculine style can be used in any home, whether it be a bachelor pad, family home, or even singles crib.masculine4
Everyone thinks choosing to go with a masculine style for a space means staying away from anything fashionable or festive. Which is not entirely true, because it can definitely be elegant and classy. All it takes is just a little research and thinking outside the box. Continue reading
