Modern furniture and contemporary furniture were born from a change in attitude, style and design that started in the late nineteenth century. Previously, furniture had tended towards more heavy, robust and lavish pieces, items that made a statement for its huge character, rather than simple elegance. Contemporary furniture design has veered more to that very elegance, often characterised by smooth, sleek lines and noted for its neat finishes rather than for its bulk and size.
A couple of items to think about before making your decision. Does the piece you want to recover need a new look? Is the frame of the piece still in good shape? Is the item you would like to recover a favorite piece of furniture? Or – is the item a perfect size and shape for a particular spot in your home? If you answered yes to these questions, a slipcover might just be your answer. And don’t limit yourself to just upholstered pieces; slipcovers are a great idea for hardwood and metal chairs as well as an easy way to get a whole new look and feel for a room.
Rather than buying expensive furniture and décor that match, look for diverse pieces with a unifying theme, color and style for the family room. A popular trend is cushions that don’t precisely match the couch. You can use the basic couch, but have slipcovers custom made for the cushions and replace them. You can always use the original covers later, always use a vibrant and exciting shade in fabrics.
For all these changes, one must have some smart knowledge of how to utilize the limited components in the best possible way, or he/she should hire an interior designer. A career in Inter designing is no doubt a gift-cum-opportunity for those who have a flavor of creativity and imagination. This course is the newest craze among youngsters.
Are you fond of making changes to the look of your home? Then what are you waiting for? Just start it. It’s just a cake walk. All you need is to be creative, imaginative and to have a good sense of colors, contrast and matching. There are many people who like to keep changing the setting of their rooms and furniture at few intervals to give their home a new look.
