2018 Color Trends & Armchair StylesDebra
Isn’t it amazing how just one good quality piece can totally transform your space? At Home Interior Warehouse, we believe in the power of design. To us, interior design and home decorating is an art form. We work hard to make sure we stay current on industry trends and learn how to tailor these trends to each individual client. The way you decorate your home speaks volumes. One room can feel deep & moody with rich plum tones and beautiful dark wood, while another can feel airy and minimalist with white and cream tones paired with sleek-lined furniture. Professional designers and home-decor enthusiasts alike can all agree that every room needs a focal piece. But, what about the accent furniture? How do you zero in on a focal piece while still highlighting the furniture and decor in its surrounding? This can be a tricky line to toe. It can be easy to make the mistake of having too many focal pieces, each fighting and fending for attention. This kind of design can make a room feel cramped, overpowering, and overwhelming. Finding the right balance where each piece holds its significance while simultaneously contributing to the whole is something we pride ourselves in achieving. A balanced look feels healthy and robust, inviting and kind. When each piece pulls its weight and works together, your home flows. To help achieve this sort of cohesion we often employ the sturdy lines of an armchair. In this blog we’ll go over Bassett Furniture’s new line of upholstered armchairs and dive into the world of 2018 color.
If there was ever a brand who could tell you the ins-and-outs of furniture making, Bassett Furniture would be your target. We love being a Bassett retailer because we can count on them to provide high quality pieces that are both functional and beautiful.
“Our custom upholstery is made just for you by people who take pride in what they do. We cut out the pieces for the frame, cut and sew the fabric, and assemble it piece-by-piece within days. No one gives you more custom options and can have it ready for you in 30 days (+ship and delivery time).”
Notice the two different styles pictured in the armchairs pictured below. The checkered piece has a more traditional, high-back look while the other looks more mid-century with its straight chair legs and shorter frame. Both looks make use of beautiful, rich color. Coral is a big contender in this year’s color spectrum. Coral, and its various shades, can make a bland room pop and add interest to a tired looking piece of furniture.
Grey has been the go-to color over the last few years and while it remains an ever-popular design choice, we’ve been seeing an increase of bold colors this season. Don’t be afraid to play up your existing decor by incorporating strategic pops up color like the gorgeous mustard colored throw blanket seen below. Don’t be afraid to go after unusual and bold fabrics, as well! Showoff your individual taste and choose an upholstery fabric that speaks to you.
In whatever space you’re designing, you undoubtedly have a piece that commands the look and feel of the room. Whether it’s a sofa or sectional, headboard/bed, or stunning work of art, you’ll want to pick key pieces to accentuate the focal point. An armchair is the perfect way to compliment your space. Consider flanking a sofa with two arm chairs side by side. Or, tuck an upholstered chair in an unused corner as an occasional chair. Does your home have a large entryway? Entryways are the perfect place to showoff a gorgeous armchair and make a lasting impression as soon as guests walk in the door. Plus, it’s always nice to have a space to tie slip on your shoes on your way out. Hang a mirror next to the chair and you’ll have an instant nook to freshen yourself up before heading out into the world. Guests will appreciate the added thought, especially after a dinner party.
So many of our pieces can be completely customized by you. We love allowing our clients the freedom to pick out small details that will make a piece uniquely theirs. Our vendors offer the freedom to pick out arm style, chair-back style, chair leg style and much more. You’ll love the polished look of nail head trim on your armchair.
