Furniture

Who can resist the fluidity of a curved back sofa, or the voluptuousness of a velvet tufted wingback, or the classic appeal of an Eames lounge chair? (Answer: Very few of us.) This Furniture section highlights a variety of furniture types, styles, finishes, and pieces, just to name a few. This Homedit section is a definite must-read.

Mobile Dining Unit That Reveals A Surprisingly Large Folding Table

When you have a small home there is obviously not enough space for all the furniture pieces and accessories that you would like to include in the interior design. However, this doesn’t always mean that you have to give up the ideal of having everything you need or want. The alternative in this case would be to find a solution that would allow you to include all the furniture you want without making the rooms seem cramped and tiny.

Multifunctional furniture is a great idea is such cases. The same thing can be said about extendable furniture pieces. One such example would be this table. Designed by Nobuhiro Teshima, this piece offers several advantages. The table is, in fact, nothing but an extension. The actual piece that you see is a cabinet.

Drop-Down Tables in Small Spaces: 1 Useful Concept, 5 Different Styles

My grandmother just contacted me for some help. She’s renovating her house to create a small apartment for her and my grandpa (the rest of the large house will be used by another family member’s family). Grandma was wondering how to incorporate a drop-leaf table effectively into her open concept (albeit fairly bite-sized) kitchen/dining/living space. I think the concept of drop-down furniture is fantastic – it works in small spaces and specialized spaces and for a variety of purposes.

I was able to work some things out with my grandma, but it got me thinking about other ways drop-down tables are useful. This article includes some of the examples I found; you might even find one or two that would work in your own home!

Kid-Zone.

Adorably imaginative Flower Shop motif aside, this drop-down play table is probably eye-candy for every mother out there who’s ever stepped on sharp legos or barbie shoes strewn about the floor. This table is perfect for keeping toys in check, helping the child be organized (they have to decide what they’re playing with and keep it confined to the space provided by the drop-down), yet it’s still completely play-able. And the bright green color makes it an imagination oasis. I love this.

17 Multi-Purpose Furniture That Changes Function In No Time

Regardless of the size of your home, it’s difficult to include in the decor every little object that you might or might not need at some point. It’s not practical either as it’s much simpler to just opt for fewer multipurpose pieces of furniture that will serve you just as well. This way you save space and money and you get to have everything you need right there in your small home.

Chairs, up and down and upside down.

Most people think that a chair is only what it appears to be, a place to sit on. But if you’re creative you can easily turn it into something else. For example, here we have four folding chairs that are mounted on the wall. When flat they just sit there. But when unfolded they become more than useful.

Color That Work Well In Combination With Black Furniture

Black furniture can be very stylish and elegant. It look great in modern and contemporary interior decors and, since black is a neutral color, you would think that it can be combined with basically any other color. Theoretically this is true but choosing the colors to complement your black furniture is not as easy as you would think. Still, it’s not impossible nor very difficult either.

Since the furniture is black and black is a strong color, you’ll probably want it to contrast with the rest of the décor. For that you’ll have to use brighter colors. Depending on the room you want to decorate, its function and the atmosphere you want to create, there are several options. For example, in the case of the bedroom, you can opt for pastels, light shades of green, pink, peach or turquoise to complement the black furniture you have already chosen. The style also plays an important role. If you want something classical or something minimalist, then you could opt for the black and white combo.
