2014 Design Trends- “Touch and Texture”

Touch and TextureA New Year invites new trends. “Touch and Texture” will be the largest focus this year in 2014. Look for soft colors, recycle and reclaimed items, and silky curtains, full of texture that draws you to touch. Pictured above from our Woodstock Furniture Outlet showroom is a soft gray sofa and love seat with a few pattern pillows. Also a large printed ottoman placed on top of a wool cream rug. All these textured pieces are accompanied with accessories that include: vintage bottles in a wire basket, gray metal tray with rope handles, and a bright white horse for a modern edge.

Shopping Online

Have you or would you purchase furniture off of the Internet? Online shopping has grown over the years and it appears that more and more people are buying things sight unseen. Would you buy a sofa without sitting on it? Are you from the old school and and have to sit on a sofa before purchasing? If it is a bar stool or piece of furniture that isn’t used much, would you purchase off of the Internet. Tell us what other pieces you have purchased off the Internet. Was it a good experience? Would you do it again?

Spring Break….

Who has Spring Break plans? Are you going out of town or staying home and working on a DIY project? Doesn’t the weather just beckon change? It makes you want to redo your house. We know we are all on a budget but there are some low cost ways to spruce up a room. We have some new, beautifully colored accessories that we just received. Think about your current color palette and look at ways to incorporate a new color into your room. You would be surprised how fresh your room would feel by switching one color out for another. An example would be if you have used a lot of red accents, you could switch to the new paprika color. It would give the room the facelift it needed without breaking the bank. If you don’t have any new color ideas, just bring a pillow or fabric in from the room and we would be glad to help you pick a new color to brighten your room. No matter how you spend your Spring Break, enjoy yourself and your family and friends.

Getting you ZZZ’s….

Sleep. Do you look forward to getting into your bed at night or do you dread it because it is not comfortable? Do you prefer a firm mattress or a soft one? How do you know which mattress to purchase? How often should you replace your mattress? We would love to help you explore your options and find the right fit for you. We even offer a 90 day Comfort Guarantee. Come in and get the details.

Do you enjoy picking out furniture for your home?

Do you enjoy picking out furniture for your home or does it make you tired just thinking about it? Sometimes we feel overwhelmed at the prospect of change, even though the change is for the better. Traditionally, the wife is the one who pushes for and picks out the new furniture, accessories, etc. Lately, we have seen many husbands becoming very hands on when it comes to decorating their homes. These particular wives are not overwhelmed now because the decisions are not up to them. I have a friend who sent her husband in to buy new living room furniture. He came in, we helped him pick out sofas, occasional tables, etc. She didn’t even see it until it was delivered and set up. She LOVED it!!! So we encourage you men to come in with your wives and be a part of the decorating process of your home. (Yes men, we know some of you like to use deer heads as decoration but just keep an open mind to all of the possibilities.)
