Marvellous Sofa Sets – Magnificently Upholstered in Microfiber

Are you a die-hard leather upholstery fan? Do you think nothing but leather will be the best thing for your furniture? Think again! There are now synthetic materials that cost far less than genuine leather and last twice as long. They stay good without absorbing the spills and stains and stay like new despite the wear and tear of rough use!

Microfiber is the gift from technological advancement in recent times. A wide variety of microfiber fabrics have come in a wide range of colours and in different finishes as well. These fabrics drape like dream and are quite sturdy as well. They can be easily washed – machine wash or hand wash and still retain their softness and pretty looks.

Microfibers are really thin – thinner than even human hair! They are made from fibres like rayon, nylon, acetate and polyester. Sometimes more than two of these fibres are combined to make a microfiber material. They can be finished to look like natural fibres – like twill, denim, silks and even suedes and other fabrics.

When the microfiber is finished to resemble suede – it is called microsuede- only they are completely and fully made of polyester fibres. Other popular finishes are velvet and chenille finish. They all look extremely elegant and look expensive but they can be quite sturdy and last much longer than genuine and natural velvet or chenille.

The strength of the microfiber is because of the fine and thin nature of the fibres. They are tightly knit or closely woven resulting in a very durable kind of fabric. They are treated to be water resistant and so water just rolls off them and they are somewhat more breathable then other nylon or polyester material though lightweight and soft.

This material is very easy to maintain with low to nil maintenance demands. Soft, durable and water-repellent qualities make these ideal for upholstering purposes. These are used in making dresses and other house-hold linen uses. Table clothes and towels are quite popular. Another important use is for car and other automobile upholstery.

Here are some beautiful-looking sofa sets from Furniture Store NYC. Look at the luxurious look and comfortable grace of the upholstery! How richly glowing and deep the shades look! These sofas offer a wide range of colours that look surpassingly bright and beautiful. Check out which is your favourite?

Glass ornaments can be tiny or slightly bigger size also. There are a number of varieties of glass ornaments available. The glitter and colour are infused into the glass with metal accents. Golden coloured accents and extra details make the glass ornaments particularly rich and beautiful to look at. The gold does not get tarnished at all.

Angels, the Holy Family, the three wise men or the kings coming with the gifts – the manger and the baby Christ with the three gifts- all kinds of themes are crafted into the glass ornaments.

There are ordinary glass ornaments – some solid round orbs, in different colours and weights and sizes. These are used as filler ornaments for the Christmas tree.

How To Make Practical Furniture Attractive

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to decorating and furnishing my home I tend to get carried away with picking out things that look pretty and forget that they need to be functional as well. However, it’s easy to make the more practical features of your home aesthetically-pleasing.
Read on for my tips on how to breathe life into these items of furniture.

Lighting
Lighting is one of the most important practical elements of any room. It’s there to illuminate the space, create the right mood and allow you to see what you’re doing. However, there’s no reason why the lights themselves can’t be attractive to look at.

Think about it, there’s some gorgeous examples of lighting out there, ranging from traditional Moroccan floor lanterns to stained glass Tiffany lamps. Choosing the most decorative light fixtures you can is a great way to make a style statement, as while these products are there to do a job they are also attractive to look at.

My tip is to choose one light that you would like to be a focal point of the room. You could invest in a timeless crystal chandelier to hang from the ceiling, an ornate floor lamp with a paper shade, or a compact but classic desk lamp. You could go really avant-garde with your purchase, so that visitors don’t even realise it is a light until you turn it on.

Storage
We all need storage in practically every room of our house. It’s what keeps our homes looking tidy, whether we neatly arrange things on shelves or hide away all our junk out of sight in a cupboard.
While this furniture is purely functional, it’s easy to add a personal touch to it. Of course, the easiest way is to arrange framed pictures and ornaments on them. The top of a cabinet is the perfect dead space to liven up with some of your favourite decorative items. Similarly, you can place ornaments in front of CDs or DVDs on your shelves to make them look more interesting.
Should you wish to get more creative, you can paint shelves, cabinets and wardrobes to add a splash of colour. Whitewashing timber is a popular look at the moment thanks to the shabby chic style. Another idea is to cover them in old wallpaper, newspaper clippings or another patterned paper, before varnishing, which makes a real style statement.

Soft furnishings
Sofas and armchairs are some of the most expensive items of furniture you can purchase for your home and because they are used for long hours, being sat on while you watch television, clambered on by kids and scratched by pets, it’s often not long before they start to look worn. On top of that, they can begin to look dated.

Of course, these are practical furnishings and the most important thing is that they’re comfortable to sit on. However, if you feel they’re looking past their best it’s possible to make them more aesthetically-pleasing rather than buying something new.
Go out and purchase some new fabric and you can have your sofa and chairs reupholstered in it. This is a great way of fooling visitors into thinking you have splashed out on a new three-piece – yet you’ll save some valuable cash.

These are just a few of the ways you can improve the look of old pieces of furniture, but what are yours?
