Eclectic Furnishing at Its Best

by Kevin Smith Author

Unless you’re an interior decorator, how do you go about deciding what furnishings will work in your rooms? At home furniture stores in Atlanta, GA, you can go modern to classic, and everything in-between. There are many styles, fabrics, colors, and textures to consider when furnishing a room, or an entire house.

What Is Your Style?

furnished you live in a condo or an apartment? Maybe you own a three-story Victorian house and want to keep that style running through the entire place.  Are you able to visualize an empty room and know how it should be? Would a striped silk and velvet fabric sofa in Italian Renaissance suit your space? Maybe you want to go with a soft French Country look. 

Do you have a log home that would be better suited for the rustic look of knotty pine or barn wood? Heavy wooden chairs with thick soft cushions around a stone fireplace could be cozy. There are also many great pieces of reclaimed rustic furnishings. Don’t forget to check out the Mission and Amish styles of furniture. A few kinds of wood to choose from are walnut, cherry, pine, oak, maple, and ash, to name a few.

Upholstery Fabrics

There are many upholstery fabrics to choose from. The best choice of fabric will depend on the use of the room. Natural fabric choices are linen, leather, cotton, wool, cotton blends, and silk. If the furnishings are formal for adult gatherings and are not used often, linen and silk make beautiful furniture coverings. Wool and cotton provide good resistance to wear, fading, and pilling. Blending wool and cotton with other fibers give them better durability. Certain cotton blends make a formal damask, while others make duck and sailcloth for casual use.

Some synthetic fabrics used for upholstery are polyester, rayon, vinyl, acetate, acrylic, and nylon. Rayon and acetate were developed as an imitation for silk, however, rayon is more durable than acetate. Polyester is blended with other fibers to help prevent nap crushing and helps guard against wrinkles.

Furnishings Include Tables and Lamps

Once you have your sofas, chairs, and ottomans figured out, your next task is finding the right end and coffee tables to tie everything together. Don’t forget the table and floor lamps with their myriad of styles and shades. You can choose from wood, glass, metal, or any combination of materials for tables. In home furniture stores in Atlanta, GA, you can find everything you need to give your living space the perfect look.
