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?

Feng Shui Tips for Fabulous Looking Baby’s Rooms

Planning for the arrival of a new baby can be the most exciting and beautiful time for the whole family. We plan from cot, mattress, wall décor and other furniture so that baby’s rooms not only look like a dream-come-true baby’s room but also the most comfortable place for the baby and the new mother for the time to come. Today, parents are thinking just beyond comfort level and cool looks of the nursery. They want the rooms to look inspiring and interesting. They want baby’s room to have a theme and co-ordinate all the furniture to follow the theme. Right from the wall décor to bed linen every thing matches just so and looks extremely pretty and nice.

The other thing the parents are now concerned is that the baby’s room should be harmonious in all ways. Not just to look harmonious in placement of furniture and arrangement of accessories, they want the baby’s room to have positive energy flow and the room is in harmonious alignment with all the natural five basic elements for health and happiness. Understanding that good Feng Shui helps health, prosperity and positive growth, parents are keen that baby’s room should have good Feng Shui. The parents realize that baby growing in a room with good Feng Shui is, less fussy, more healthy, easy-going and comfortable. They sleep better; are not startled or restless than normal.

What are the important points to observe for good Feng Shui in baby’s room? Check that baby’s room is in a calming and peaceful location. And the baby’s crib is placed in a good location against a wall and not against a window or in line with a door. Check that the baby’s crib is not adjacent to a toilet or bathroom etc. The other things that can bring good Feng Shui for the baby’s room is pastel and soothing wall decor. Check out for colours that are mutually harmonious if you want to bring dual colour scheme. Check out that there is no sharp-edged furniture pointing at the baby’s head or frightening kind of wall décor in the baby’s room.

Finally make sure that the baby’s room has the most harmonious and pleasant kind of lighting that will not be glaring to the soft eyes of the baby. Here are some images of very prettily done nursery from Creations Baby.

Bring Home A Beautiful Artefact And Add To the Ambiance of Your Home

Most of us love to have beautiful things around us in the home, displayed to perfection, creating a touch of class to the entire look of the house. Collecting beautiful items, antique or modern, is a hobby for some and a passion for many people. The collectibles show-case your superb taste, craving for beauty & elegance and your talent for picking up a unique item – a winner – that will appreciate in its value over time.

Collectibles are almost always hand-crafted and unique. Some people collect paintings, some coins, some stamps, some sculptures, some miniatures, some books, some manuscripts, some glass and some porcelain. Some collect beautiful and antique furniture. Some of the old French, English and Italian furniture can look stunning and one chair/sofa or table alone can bring a distinctive touch of class to the entire room.

Some of the art lovers trot across the globe in search of items that they collect. Dedicated art lovers practically go from one auction to another, from one country to another in the hope of picking up something that is unique and rare. Many flock to garage sales, junk yard sale and second-hand shops in hopes of spotting what looks insignificant and lying unrecognized to others but a rare, precious and valuable artefact for the expert.

Today, apart from the aesthetic pleasures one derives from art collectibles, more and more people are recognizing the monetary benefits of collecting art and other collectibles. A collector may recognize a budding talent and can make a kill if he buys wisely. A painting or sculpture will reach sky-high prices once their authors’ work becomes well-known and famous. A road-side painter may get to become a maestro one day!

There are a few artists making contemporary and elegant art items now which can compete with any antique piece for exquisite workmanship and excellent execution. Many of them are one of a kind item or exclusively manufactured under client-specific instructions. Created with love and passion, crafted with masterly skill and dexterity, they bring joy and delight to the beholder as much to the creator.

Wrought iron art pieces can enhance the beauty of home, outside and the garden. They combine a look of delicacy with inherent strength. Here are some samples of contemporary and cool-looking art work from Shawn Lovell. She specializes in commissioned and one-of-a-kind work using forging and welding techniques – both traditional and modern – to create items of artistic & ornamental as well as practical value.

A simple yet classic artefact can make a strong style statement and bring everlasting pleasure and joy to the collector! Bring home one and start a collection!!

Great Furniture for Your Kids’ Rooms

Once the children grow-up they love to have their rooms furnished the way they want. Actually very young children are not all that keen about how much you are spending on furnishing their room. All they are expecting is that it comes up to their idea of a dream room for themselves. So it is best to involve them in the process of choosing furniture, furnishing and accessories for their rooms.

With the space restriction that comes along with the small spaces we have today, many a time siblings have to share room. Sometimes kids’ room size can be really small – maybe just a minuscule area. Even if it is only a tiny alcove or a attic like room, a child would love the privacy his room gives and loves all the more to have a space all his own.

The operating principle will be space optimization. You have to try and make a study area, sleeping area as well as storage area in one tiny room. Bunk beds are great even if you have only one child. The lower area can be utilized as a table with storage space underneath and the upper portion – neatly furnished as a bed with safety rails etc.

Today beds come with underneath storage options that can contain any likely clutter usually happening in small spaces. You can check out beds with trundle options for accommodating your child’s friend occasionally. Floating shelves and floating desktops are good options leaving precious floor space free for that open uncluttered look.

Presently children furniture section has grown in leaps and bounds. Entire stores are selling furniture exclusively devoted only to children. Separate furniture design lines are devoted for kids’ furniture, right from baby stage, toddlers, pre teens, teens etc differently for boys, girls and twins etc, much to the delight of both parents and the children.

Here you see some very pretty-looking kids’ furniture from Kids’ Room. The corner bunk-bed with a sturdy-looking ladder and a designed safety rail will be particularly attractive to your boy. The popular below-bed storage option is very welcome in both boys and girls rooms for storage. And the open floating shelf above the writing table looks pretty as well functional.

I am sure you are keen to makeover your kids room in a way it makes you happy and leave the child hugely satisfied to have what he/she exactly wanted!
