Give Your Small Space Some Big Style

BOSTON, MASS. – June 24, 2008 Whether it’s because you live a tight budget or simply prefer the conveniences of apartment living (or both), a small living space can still have big style if you follow some simple guidelines, says Davis Remignanti, Lead Design Consultant at FurnitureFind.com (http://www.furniturefind.com/).

  • Measure, Measure, Measure. When furnishing a small space, it’s vital that you measure your room carefully – and never shop without a tape measure! Don’t rely on the measurements you may have seen on price tags – they could be off by an all-important inch or two.
  • Shop Every Department. Who knows, the perfectly-scaled dresser for your bedroom may be in the children’s department. The petite dining table you need may be with the outdoor furniture. Apartment living requires thinking outside the box. Don’t let labels limit you – if it works for your space, that’s all that matters.
  • Think in 3 Dimensions. Don’t just think about the “footprint” of your furniture – height is the most overlooked dimension in decor. If your space doesn’t have soaring ceilings, keep your furniture low and lean to ensure that your small space has an open and airy feeling. Even a small-scale piece can appear bulky if it’s too tall.
  • Pare it Down. Bring high style into cramped quarters by shopping for simply styled, clean lined furniture. Your sofa doesn’t have to have arms – your bed doesn’t have to have a footboard. Apartment living is all about making a small space feel larger!
  • Refined Palette. A small space benefits from a controlled color palette. Two or three pops of accent hues against a soothingly monochromatic color scheme will give your decor instant sophistication. And remember, monochromatic doesn’t mean neutral and boring – it can be bold and daring!
  • Big Art, Big Impact. Don’t burden your walls with multiple, wimpy pieces of wall decor. A single large-scaled piece of art can actually give a small space a confident sense of self! Consider an oversized piece of vintage advertising art on a single accent-colored wall.
  • Move It! Small needn’t be boring, especially if it’s constantly changing! Consider modular furniture that can be re-arranged on a whim. Furniture on casters allows you to re-configure the look of your room without needing an extra pair of hands to help.
  • Set the Scene. One of the favorite secrets of designers? Up lights. Canister lights that can be placed on the floor, behind furniture, on shelves – where they cast an upward beacon of light that adds drama and dimension. They are easily moved around, and nothing will change the look of your room like an unusual accent of light.
  • Treat Yourself. An under-appreciated fact about apartment living is this – because you need fewer pieces, your budget can be stretched to include a splurge or two. Take that money you saved on dining chairs and treat yourself to high end bed linens or the best electronics.

“Remember, bigger is not necessarily better,” says Davis Remignanti. “With a little planning, your small space can be an exquisite jewel box, perfect for you because it’s uniquely your own.”

Living Large Outdoors: Top Trends in Outdoor Furniture Decor

BOSTON, MASS. – May 15, 2008 – This year’s top trends in outdoor furniture offer many options for living large out-of-doors, in comfort and style, says Davis Remignanti, lead designer for http://www.furniturefind.com/:

  • Design Underfoot. Nothing defines a furnished area like a rug, and every year the selection of rugged outdoor floor decor gets nicer (http://www.furniturefind.com/Homespice-Decor-Tuscany-HSD1087.html). Or, consider a painted rug. Use quality deck paint, a good sealer and a little creativity to break up the long expanse of wood.
  • Bringing the Indoors Outside. Some furniture designed for indoor use can work just fine outdoors. Look for pieces constructed of metal, glass and stone, which will develop a patina over time when exposed to the elements (http://www.furniturefind.com/Koch-Originals-7271-260-KO1034.html). That old Baker’s rack can function as a beautiful bar or plant stand, and the metal and glass cocktail table that looked beautiful in your living room will add a touch of glamour to your outdoor space.
  • Temporary Walls. Define your patio or outdoor space (and add to your privacy) by constructing outdoor walls with simple supports and draped fabrics like sail cloth or rip-stop nylon. Let the panels flutter in the breeze or secure them all around, but keep in mind the amount of wind your outdoor space experiences.
  • Twinkle, Twinkle. Bring light to your space in new and interesting ways. An old electric ceiling fixture with glass hurricanes can be hung over head, without electricity, to serve as a candelier. Or, hang several Bethlehem stars with tea lights. Or, the old standby, strings of white Christmas lights to offer a magical flavor to evening entertaining.

Designing a Media Room for Style and Comfort

BOSTON, MASS. – May 13, 2008 – More than ever before, Americans are moving their televisions out of their living rooms and bedrooms – and into dedicated home media rooms. A space devoted to TV viewing presents unique room design challenges, and C. Davis Remignanti, Lead Design Consultant at http://www.furniturefind.com/, offers the following tips:

  • Reserved Seating: Consider the number of seats you really need. A young or retired couple who don’t host “movie night” parties needn’t have seating for six. A family with two or three children may need, on occasion, to accommodate eight or more, making sectional sofas (www.furniturefind.com/Simmons-Upholstery-Ebbtide-Sectional-SUP1377.html) a good option.
  • Time to Recline: When possible, try to work reclining furniture (www.furniturefind.com/Home-Styles-5610-10-1001-HO1252.html) into your room’s décor. Nothing enhances your viewing please quite like feeling as though you are in the lap of luxury. Sure, recliners are a guilty pleasure, but they are the perfect choice for media rooms.
  • Go Wireless: Even an inexpensive home theater speaker system will greatly enhance your viewing experience. But having speakers dotted all around the room can be logistically difficult. Consider a wireless speaker system to keep the room free of extraneous clutter and wires.

Tips on Selecting the Perfect Dining Room Furniture

WALTHAM, MASS. – March 24, 2008 – Whether you’re seeking to upgrade your dining room to add elegance when entertaining your friends, or to cozy up your family dinner hours, FurnitureFind.com‘s lead Design Consultant, Davis Remignanti offers these practical steps to ensure that your dining room furniture will rise to the occasion:

  • Sturdy Support: Choosing between dining tables with legs or a pedestal base? Pedestal tables can fit additional chairs more easily than most leg tables. However, leg tables tend to be more stable and less likely to tip if something heavy is placed near the edge. Regardless of style, avoid a tight fit when every chair is occupied, by measuring your room before buying a new table.
  • Please Be Seated: When selecting dining chairs, look for good back support and strong arms. These features will not only provide comfort, but will help ensure that guests will want to linger over coffee and dessert!
  • Up with Upholstery: Add a dash of color and soften the “serious” look of all-wood dining suites with fully upholstered chairs. They come in a wide range of styles, but perhaps the most versatile is the elegant Parsons Chair, which can double as accent seating when needed.
  • Accessorize the Look: If space allows, enhance your room with accessory furniture. Add an opportunity to show off your collectibles in a curio cabinet, or contribute both style and storage to the space with a sideboard buffet.
  • Through the Looking Glass: They look elegant, but glass top dining tables can require more cleaning to keep the fingerprints at bay. If you like the look, it’s a trade-off you’ll need to make.
  • Show Your Style: Perhaps your dining room furniture might benefit from a little “mix-and-match” attitude. Don’t be afraid to invest in a quality dining table and combine it with an antique buffet or coordinating (but not matching) chairs.

Hot Home Design Trends in 2008: Bringing Glamour Back

Waltham, Mass. – December 26, 2007 – While interior design is still celebrating natural, eclectic and rough hewn materials, there has been a resurgence of chic, retro glamour, according to Davis Remignanti, Lead Design Consultant at Furniture.com (http://www.furniture.com/).

“Design trends are fascinating things to observe. They can be predictable or surprising,” he says. “The recent interest in natural materials has spawned the renewed fascination for glamorous and refined designs” in the look he calls “Luxe Redux.”

Here are highlights from Remignanti’s 2008 Design Trends report:

  • The Return of Glamour – A renewed appreciation for post-Deco glamour brings refined silhouettes and finishes to the fore. The look of “Luxe Redux” features gently swept lines, strong geometric forms, and finishes that emphasize exotic veneers. “The look is glamorous but in an approachable and welcoming way.”
  • Scaling Down – Exaggeratedly oversized furniture is on the way out. Manufacturers are returning to smaller scale pieces more in proportion with normal human scale.
  • Scaling Up – Not everything is going small scale. “A very hot trend is large scale patterns used in fabrics and floor and wall coverings. If you’re choosing a pattern over solid colors, make it big and bold,” he advises.
  • Black and White – Stylish interiors are using black and white as the main color scheme. “Using black, even as the dominant color in a room, can yield classic and refreshingly chic results. Accent colors pop strongly against a black and white backdrop.” For that reason, he advises caution to design novices. “It’s a look that can be tricky to pull off successfully.”
  • Accent Colors – A “spice-inflected” palette will be the hottest look in accent colors for the coming year. He lists carnelian, flax, russet and acid green as the hottest hues, and predicts that 2008 will be the year that blue makes a strong return. He also says reflective materials like chrome, mirrors and mercury glass are important for room accents.
  • Vintage in the Mix – A still-strong trend of “a la carte,” mix-and-match interiors has people combining old and new pieces in interesting ways. “Vintage pieces bring a unique energy to a room’s décor. Sometimes it can be hard to tell which pieces are old and which are new,” he says.

Remignanti counsels against the idea of “rules” for good design, but offers one piece of timeless advice. “Remember that however well put together a room may be, it’s meant to be used. If a room isn’t comfortable and inviting for those inside it, it’s a design failure, no matter how stylish it may be.”

Entertaining for the Holidays: Easy Tips to Refresh Your Décor

WALTHAM, MASS. – November 13, 2007 – Preparing a home for holiday entertaining needn’t require an entire season – or budget. You can easily put your house in order in just one weekend with the right approach, Davis Remignanti, Lead Design Consultant at Furniture.com (www.furniture.com).

He offers these tips to ready any home for festive gatherings of friends and family:

Start Fresh: Before beginning, take a fresh look. Have you outgrown your décor from 5, 10, or 20 years ago? Ask a trusted friend for the honest truth. Then, take action.

  • Go with the Flow: Re-arrange furniture to increase floor space and allow guests freer movement. Continue your party’s theme from room to room for an uninterrupted flow to the ambiance. Use Furniture.com’s free interactive Room Planner (go to: http://www.furniture.com/Common/roomplanner) to experiment with layouts.
  • Make Small Nooks for Small Talk: Create cozy conversation areas by arranging nesting tables to hold guests’ food and drinks. And after the festivities, these space-saving tables will serve a million more uses, for snacks, games, craft projects, and more.
  • Don’t Crowd: Face the facts: Ten guests won’t fit around a dining table made to seat four, no matter how you try. Either upgrade to a larger table, or spread out with a more casual buffet. Or, consider a bistro-style dining set to evoke a social atmosphere. The taller-than-standard table height makes it easy for guests to serve themselves drinks, buffet dinner, or even make their own desserts!
  • Mix & Mix: Matching all the furnishings within a room is design passé. Experiment. Mix sizes, scales and textures to give your rooms a unique – rather than a retail showroom – style.
  • Create Walls of Inspiration: Give the walls a fresh new color, border, or mix of textures for visual interest. Express who you are with a new piece of artwork that encourages conversation. The most harmonious arrangements take cues from the room. For instance, try hanging pictures in a rolling up and down grouping over a camelback sofa.
  • Add Color: A little bit of color can go a long way. Bright accent pillows, bold frames and coordinated candles in decorative candleholders can make a dull or sterile room more attractive and welcoming.
  • Light Up Your Life: Bring a new look to a room by updating the lighting. Coordinate the look by making sure lamp heights are equal throughout, and all have the same color shade.
  • Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize: Arrange accessories symmetrically for a formal look, or asymmetrically to get creative. Highlight a special item by placing it against a contrasting surface. Reflect the seasons and bring nature indoors with arrangements of leaves, stones and fresh flowers.
  • Don’t Stress: Forget perfection. Anything “out of place” makes a home more cozy and charming. Go for what feels right. It’s your house – above all else, enjoy the party.

Home Decor and Furnishing Tips for Growing Families

WALTHAM, MASS. – September 24, 2007 – Implementing simple, yet clever choices throughout a home can help save time, money and sanity to meet most growing families’ needs. Doing so could create a more child-friendly home featuring family space that is both more organized and efficient for all.

Davis Remignanti, lead Design Consultant at Furniture.com offers this helpful advice on furnishing a functional home for any family.

  • Bunk It: In kids’ rooms, bunk beds and lofts are obvious choices for maximizing floor space and today’s styles are often packed with built-in storage for clothes and toys.
  • Reuse and Recycle: Children’s dressers tend to be narrow, with easy to open drawers and pulls that are close together to fit the proportions of small hands and shorter arm spans. When a dresser is outgrown, move it into a closet for extra storage.
  • Creative Storage: Large, colorful plastic storage cubes can hold lots of stuff and can be used as seats or tables. Nesting tables are not only to move between rooms for various uses, but when homework, games and projects are done, they “nest” together to save space.
  • Flex Your Furniture: In the living or family room, sectional sofas are cozy for one and comfortable for many. Best of all, these versatile furniture forms often have multiple configurations, which means they’ll adapt to any room – and even a new address. If a smaller home is in the future, separate the pieces and use in different rooms.
  • Cushion Strategy: Fabrics with a higher thread count and tighter weave are more durable while flat weaves are less likely to fray with frequent use. Regular rotating and vacuuming will prolong the life of sofa cushions. Removable, washable slipcovers provide protection and easy cleaning for day-to-day family use – and can be quickly removed for entertaining.
  • Home Work: Most families designate the kitchen table for homework and paying bills. To host the family computer, choose a corner in the kitchen or family room to tuck away a workstation desk or hutch. Some feature doors to enclose the electronics.
  • Sit Right: Regardless if homework is done at a desk or kitchen table, ergonomics are important. Use an adjustable desk chair, or “raise” the seat with pillows to position children at a comfortable height for the work surface. Avoid dangling feet by adding a footstool or box.
  • Plan for Growth. As a family grows, furniture will be transitioned to different rooms. Selecting classic designs that complement many different decors will ease the move. Even simple styles can be livened up with accessories while maintaining maximum versatility for use in a different room.

“Planning ahead and making the right choices about home furnishings now can go a long way towards ensuring a comfortable, kid-friendly home as your family grows throughout the years,” said Remignanti.

When “His” Meets “Hers” – Tips for Newlyweds on Blending Decorating Styles in a New Home

WALTHAM, MASS. – March 21, 2007 – Of the 4.6 million newlyweds who tie the knot this year, nearly 60% plan to buy a new home and 75% plan to redecorate. But while newlyweds receive lots of advice about marriage, there’s usually little offered on the intricacies of designing a new home together.

“Picture the newlyweds, as the moving van pulls away, standing amid the stacks of his and hers boxes in their new, shared residence – and each wondering how they’re going to pull it all together,” said Davis Remignanti, lead design consultant at Furniture.com (www.furniture.com).

To ensure that their happy new home doesn’t become “a post-wedding house divided,” Remignanti offered newly married couples the following decorating tips towards a “blissfully blended outcome when his meets hers”:

  • Relax – Don’t worry about what goes with what: Mix, don’t match. A new home, like a new relationship, is about the couple. Follow decorating instincts with pieces that suit both his and her interests and activities.
  • R.E.S.P.E.C.T. – Beware of underlying emotions. She’ll trample his feelings if she trashes his well-worn recliner – a hand-me-down from Dad. Instead, both need to get creative and compromise: Give it a corner in the bedroom if it’s a “no” for the living room.
  • Prioritize – Blending pieces from the past is one thing while shopping for new furniture is another, and larger, undertaking. Step one: List what’s needed most. While he may want a sleek new media center for the television, does it make sense if the couple is left to sit on a dorm-room futon?
  • Budget – Be realistic in setting spending limits and work within them. Ask when shopping: Will this be a “forever” dining room or is it just a temporary solution until a future move into a larger place? Saving money now for a better selection down the road is an option, too.
  • Get inspired – Research the possibilities as a couple. Get together on the couch and scan newspapers, magazines, and TV shows. Discuss friends’ homes. Find design inspiration and common ground. If she likes Cottage Style and he prefers Modern, both should rejoice upon discovering they prefer lighter wood tones and color schemes.
  • Collaborate – Many couples include one décor-conscious person and one “it’s just a chair” person. While one partner may be driving most decisions, for the long-term good of the relationship, involve the other. Don’t forget – it’s his/her home, too.
  • Try before you buy – Free Internet resources, like Furniture.com’s Room Planner at www.furniture.com/roomplanner, offer couples the opportunity to browse, try lots of items, and see what fits where – without spending weekend after weekend driving from one store to another. Even better, once the newlyweds have created a room plan they both love, they can turn their plan into a purchase with a few clicks of the mouse.
  • Keep it light – Rome wasn’t decorated in a day. Couples can remove much of the pressure by viewing the experience as an opportunity to share what they love about each other. They should focus not only on the beautiful outcome of creating a new décor together, but the bigger picture as well – starting a new life together.

“Even if a couple starts out worlds apart, there are more looks and options to chose from today than ever before, and plenty of opportunity to find common ground and create their dream home,” Remignanti said. “Of course there’s no prouder moment than when guests stop by and admire the result and he turns to her and says: ‘Well, great minds think alike.’”

Getting Comfortable With Color – Home Decorating Tips from Furniture.com

WALTHAM, MASS. – February 13, 2007 – Want to give your home a splash of color but afraid it will be too brash?

Davis Remignanti, lead Design Consultant at www.Furniture.com offers some step-by-step advice on making good color choices.

“Start with the walls,” Davis advises. “Unless you live in an apartment and can’t paint, avoid white walls.”

Incorporating color into your home doesn’t have to be intimidating – if you put it into perspective.

“Reflect on your own fashion tastes when choosing colors for your home. Many people know what colors look good on them. Those same colors can be incorporated into your personal space, because they are familiar, flattering and comforting.”

Davis suggests:

  • First Things First: Identify any major room features that you can’t (or don’t want to) change – the color of woodwork, the brick in the hearth, those custom drapes – then decorate with and around them.
  • Work Your Way Up: If starting with an empty room, select a rug or floor covering first. You’re more likely to match walls and furniture to the rug than vice versa. The colors in your rug will provide good choices for wall and accent colors.
  • Create Your Color Palette: Good room design should incorporate a palette of at least five colors: two main colors, one supporting color (this is often a neutral or wood tone) and two accent colors. For hints on combining colors, see www.furniture.com/color.
  • Create a Flow: For rooms connected by an open archway or large doorway, choose harmonious color palettes. You’ll create a color link between the two spaces and avoid a jarring transition from one room to the next.
  • Use Patterns Sparingly: For beginners, it’s better to use only one multi-color pattern per room. If the rug carries a pattern, avoid “competition” by keeping window treatments, upholstery and accents simple.
  • Don’t Over-Indulge: Too much of the same color in a room can be a mistake. Even if it’s your favorite color, maintain a good balance of main colors and accent colors around your room.
  • Light It Up: Generate an elegant room-wide glow by using gold or peach hued light bulbs in table lamps. Bright enough for daily tasks, they can add a beautiful warm tone to a room.
  • Embrace Change: Be brave with your accent colors, because they can be changed easily. Candles can be burned, picture frames re-painted, pillows recovered. Go with your instincts, but don’t be discouraged if you’re not happy with your choice – it’s all part of the process of getting comfortable with color.

“Whatever the decorating challenge, it’s important to remember, no rules are written in stone. Still not confident about making color choices? Many manufacturers now offer paint samples and fabric swatches – take advantage and test your color combining skills on a small scale first.”“In the end,” Davis advises, “take your time and enjoy the experience. Your color confidence will grow with each project. And before long, you’ll have created a stylish, inviting home, and your friends will start asking you for color advice!”

Furniture.com’s “Dealer Extranet” Enables E-Commerce for its Retailers’ Independent Dealers

WALTHAM, Mass. – February 12, 2007 – Furniture retailers using Furniture.com’s e-commerce technology and services platform can now enable e-commerce for their independent dealers.

Furniture.com, which provides Internet solutions for Furniture retailers representing nearly $2B in retail sales, views their new Dealer Extranet as an important addition to their offering.

“Many large furniture retailers do not own all of their stores, instead working with independent dealers who sell under the retailer’s brand,” says Carl Prindle, Furniture.com’s President and CEO. “Our Dealer Extranet allows these independent dealers to enable e-commerce for their locations, with complete control of how their online business operates.”

The extranet, launched in November, is being used by 21 independent merchants affiliated with Toronto-based Leon’s Furniture. Leon’s independent merchants select items to sell online from Leon’s online catalog as well as set local pricing for their region. They accept and fulfill online orders, and take advantage of Furniture.com’s advanced CRM systems.

This is a win for our retailers, their independent affiliates and consumers,” said Prindle. “Furniture retailers who rely on independent dealers can now offer e-commerce to their customers. Independent dealers can add advanced e-commerce capabilities that would be difficult for them to replicate on their own. The end result is a seamless experience for customers and significant sales lift for retailers and dealers alike.”
