Fabric…or Leather?

When buying a new sofa, it is always a matter of choosing the perfect fabrication.  The question “fabric or leather?” needs to be carefully considered as there are many differences, advantages and disadvantages of the two.

It also always help to inquire about stain protection plans and/or warranty that might be included in your sofa.  If you are buying an expensive set, it’s worth considering these services as they help keep your pieces in showroom condition, extending the life of your upholstery.

Trend Watch: Honey-Tone Woods

Light-colored woods have been considered outdated in the furnishing industry for years!

It’s about time that the world of furniture is finally taking a breathe of fresh air as 2014 will see a shift from darker wood to “honey-tone woods” such as pine, chestnut, oak and cherry.

There are various advantages of light colored wood.

Firstly,  smaller spaces benefit from lighter shades because it helps promote an open, spacious feel.  The light hue also mixes well with clean, white walls.  Additionally, it also works well with other colors since the natural color of wood when combined with subtle colors, gives a calm and inviting atmosphere.
