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.

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.

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.
