Compact Console Tables for Living Room Furniture

When you imagine a well- laid out living room, along with comfy and elegant sofa sets and sectionals you need to picture end tables also – all kinds of end tables like sofa end table, coffee table, side table and console table. The coffee table may be the star of the show – sitting in the center of the room and being the focus; but the other tables are also equally useful and equally important.

Console tables are long, narrow and a little taller than other tables. Console tables are essentially functional furniture – serving as display tables, or flat surfaces where you can keep quite a lot of stuff handy. Console tables are essential in the living room, in the dining area and in the foyer area as well. They are useful but stay out of way – always against the wall so every room can be better with one console table.

Many a time, console tables are themselves ornamental adding to the beauty of the corner where they are accommodated. They have crafted details like scroll work if they are made of metal; carving details if they are made of wood. They can be shaped more artistically than any other end-tables and create a focus area of attention by their beauty and distinct looks.

Console tables can be free-standing or wall supported. Free standing tables are naturally full tables with four legs and stable without any wall support. They can be made of wood or metal and with work details in the legs or full frame itself. They may have a lower shelf where you can keep books etc and sometimes, have small drawers to keep keys etc.

If the console tables are wall supported, they may have the front two legs and have the back portion supported at the wall. Some tables may have a single pedestal-like base and some may have three legs – one at the front and three at the back. Console tops can be oval or rectangular. Sometimes they are quadrants of circles – a segment – looking very pretty.

Here you can see some images of pretty looking console tables from Chelini – an Italian furniture designer firm who create really beautiful and exquisite furniture. These console tables have very beautiful details like scroll work, carved legs and other details. Hope you will like to have some console tables like these at your home?

Coffee & End Tables – Finishing Touch to Your Living Room Furniture

Think of the days when humankind lived without too much furniture? Don’t you think they had fewer problems? Most probably they had bigger living areas – uncluttered and available? But think how inconvenient life would have been for them! No soft comfy furniture, no flat surfaces to eat from of no side tables like coffee or end tables for keeping stuff!

Over centuries, humankind has learned to appreciate good living and comfortable lodging. One of the most important aspects of comfortable homes is nice and sturdy furniture which makes life easier and more relaxed; things that would look trendy and beautiful and look aesthetic in the correct settings created to satisfy your personal desires.

Coffee and end tables – part of the occasional table sets – have become essential accessories and have become crucial part of home furniture – especially in the living room where we do the informal entertainment when visitors and guests come and where we relax watching some TV, reading books and listening to music.

End tables and coffee tables may not be the focus of the room, but they are certainly handy for keeping our snack plates, drink trays and glasses, iPods, IPads, remotes and of course newspapers and books. You can use them to hold a vase of fresh flowers or some beautiful looking curios or collectible you purchased from your last holiday!

With the wide amount of opportunities in choosing the exact coffee and end tables for your living room, the choice may be getting tougher and difficult for you. You need to focus on what kind of tables, in what style, in what material and in what size you can buy so that the end and coffee tables will blend most harmoniously with your other furniture.

Size is one of the most important aspects you must keep in mind. A coffee or end table should not be taller than the upholstered or sofa cushions – it should be preferably shorter. If you are keeping the coffee table at the center, you need at least two feet clearance space all around. Buy in a material and style that will blend beautifully with the existing living room décor.

Here are some images of beautiful looking coffee and end tables from A Brand New Look. Some are in antique finish and some with beautifully inlay work. All have storage space and finished exquisitely. Check what you like best?

Jute Furniture – Green Option for Your Home

Jute is called golden fibre. It looks golden yellow when it is mature and well maintained. Jute is one the organic, green and sustainable materials that can be used in furniture. It can be woven into rugs, sacks, bags and it can be made into pretty looking window treatments, curtains and now used for upholstering wooden framed furniture. These are eco friendly products leaving no carbon foot print.

Jute is getting more popular as people have come to realize more and more of its versatility and ease of use in both upholstering and soft furnishings. Jute strands are sometimes used for caning purposes. Jute strands are woven for seats and backs of the sofas sets as well sides and stumps of chairs. Jute weaving can be as strong as rattan or cane weaving and last as much or even longer.

Other uses for jute fibres are being explored and are as popular as other woven chairs like cane, bamboo and other grass products. Jute strands are woven a little more closely and the finished surfaces look ruggedly pretty and stay sturdy and retain their looks. Mostly the furniture frame is made of hardwood and jute fibres are used for caning.

Another name for jute is hessian. These vegetable fibres are made into strands – sturdy and coarse looking and burlap sack is made with jute fibre. Mostly jute fibres are hand woven alone or in combination with other fibres. They match the teak-like wooden finish as well as the solid furniture like oak and walnut. They can be coloured but look more fabulous when they remain natural tinted.

In natural colour, jute can give a rustic and rugged, natural look to your décor. The just fibres can be bleached into a pale and pearly white colour or can be stained into a dark brown to match oak wood frames etc. Chairs with wooden chair frames and jute fibre weaving look more elegant when upholstered with fabric and filled with microfiber.

Not only wooden frames go well with jute, but metal frames are also used to create loungers, ottoman, bar stools and other conservatory or outdoor furniture pieces. These metal and jute furniture are lightweight and can be used in patios, terraces, decks and balconies as well in gardens. They are portable and fit anywhere easily. Here are some images of beautiful looking jute furniture from SJY.

Luxurious Design Ideas For Your Dream Home

Can you make your home luxurious looking with lavish interiors at a budget? Many of us think that we need to spend a lot of money to get our house look grand and well-appointed. It need not necessarily be that you have to spend a lot of money on expensive items or provide too costly items. We can create a stylish looking sophisticated home without burning a hole in our pockets.

What can be called luxurious décor? Rich and ornate chandeliers, luxurious contemporary ceiling fans, masterpiece paintings, curios, high quality designer sofas, plush deep pile carpets, and a big spacious house will all go to make a house look grand and luxurious. But how can you make luxury affordable? How can you create a classy and chic décor without going bankrupt?

First you have to make the home look spacious. Whatever is the size of your home and rooms, you can make them look spacious, clean and uncluttered. Throw away all the unnecessary items that you have accumulated over years and which you do not use. Check right from the storage, kitchen, bedrooms, living room and patio – and weed out all the junk that you have accumulated.

Go for simple and classic style furniture. If you have some good furniture that is antique, try to get them restored. Well-maintained antique furniture makes your home look elegant. Likewise throw away all old cushions, pillows and throws ruthlessly. Get lively coloured cushion covers and drapery too. Use sheers and laces along with brocade and silk curtains.

Get the wall décor right. Discuss with your interior decorator what will look rich on the wall. Ask him for colours and patterns which will look unique and not ordinary. Get the silk finish paint for your walls. When you have installed all the lights you will need, the satin/silk finish wall décor will glitter and bring a rich look and ambiance very easily.

Get only natural fibres for upholstery purpose. Pure cotton, pure silk or pure wool will look impressive as upholstery fabric as well curtain material. Have a lot of lights around the rooms. When light reflects off the well-polished furniture, it adds definitely to the value of your home. And always pick and choose really personal and pricey decorative items.

Here are some beautiful looking interiors from Asnaghi. The gilt and gold, chandeliers and carpets, curios and collectibles make it a dream home.
