Stylistically Perfect Room

1790_RS_V1-2

 

I have so many great things to say about this absolutely stylistically perfect room scene from CRLaine Furniture. Avoiding predictability their combination of bold patterns exercises the eyes to create an energetic living space. The furniture arrangement is simple and straightforward yet the mixture of color, texture and pattern is eye-catching in unexpected ways. The playful design of the sofa, the bold color on the toss pillows and the animal print on the chairs pull together to radiate happiness. One of my favourite things about CRLaine is their no fear policy when it comes to playing with color. Of course my other favourite thing is quality, quality, quality! Shown above is the Colchester Sofa, 8 way hand tied , creating an uber comfy long lasting sofa, and at 87.5″L X 37D X 39H it is easy to fit in most living spaces. The Elle chair (shown in the leopard print) is new to CRLaine, it has wonderful optional finishes on the arms, is 30″W x 36″D X 33.5″H and I must say makes quite a statement as shown. The Pierce wing chair offers a modern edge to the space with it’s clean straight lines, which are complemented by the plaid fabric, 29″W x 33″D x 48″H, perfectly proportioned for the room.  The Terrance ottoman is also new to CRLaine, has optional sizes to choose from and is available in both leather and fabric making it the perfect finishing touch to the room, put your feet up or put your drink down a cocktail ottoman is always a good choice. So just want to say thanks to CRLaine for showing us to be brave, have some fun with your fabric choices the results will make you smile!!! If you have any questions on where this fabulous furniture is available in the G.T.A just let me know I will be happy to send you to your local retailer.

Great Canadian Suppliers

white nov 12

I am always thrilled when a client wants to support our Great Canadian Suppliers. We in the furniture industry are very fortunate to have so many wonderful Canadian products available to us. But first be very specific, if you are out furniture shopping on what you are asking for, a Canadian supplier of furniture does not always mean made in Canada. If it is important to you to have it made in Canada then tell your sales associate exactly that, if all you ask for is a Canadian supplier, then it says something completely different. In my 28 years of selling furniture I will say this, any of the Canadian suppliers I have dealt with have been fantastic. The sofa in this photo is from Decor-Rest, a well known, excellent quality manufacturer since 1972, and their upholstery is made in North America. Decor-Rest has a wide selection of products and styles to choose from, with a fashion forward selection of fabrics. The chair is from Brentwood, again an excellent Canadian supplier, and also made in Canada. Comfort, style, durability all part of the selections available from Brentwood. The bedroom set and dining room set are again Canadian suppliers, Canadian made and both offer solid wood products. The dining room is Bermex, with so many options it is impossible to list, the bedroom is Durham Furniture, a name you can trust. The rug and ottoman are both from Surya, a company with a Canadian office, with absolutely fabulous product with amazing customer service, but not made in Canada, so this is why I say be specific in what you are asking for. My experience has given me the opportunity to meet many of the owners, sales reps and factory workers for numerous Canadian suppliers, be confident in the fact that you are supporting some very hard working, talented and proud people.

Retro Revival

cr-7200_1014Want to create a modern masterpiece. I never like to get too locked in to the latest trend, but I must admit the revival of retro does make me happy. This Mad Men inspired decorating craze is actually quite easy to accomplish, with so many fabulous furniture suppliers making it fun and exciting to get the look you want. Start with the Sawyer Sofa from CrLaine Furniture, so many fabulous fabrics and colors to choose from and perfectly sized at 79W x 36D x 35H. Retro usually involves solid colors with not a lot of pattern, use deeper saturated tones. rowe-N780-006Keep some fluidity in your furniture selections, use pieces that have architectural elements. The Harris Chair from Rowe Furniture has everything you are looking for. Amazing quality and made in the U.S.A, size is 29W x 30D x 36H, great proportion for our sofa selection.sur-cos9092Add some abstract patterns to your toss pillows or as shown here in our area rug choice. From the Cosmopolitan collection from Surya Rugs, it is hand tufted and available in a variety of sizes. Just the right amount of pattern we are looking for and the saturated colors needed to keep it visually interesting.hk-5398_55464roomCan’t say enough good things about our final piece. The Studio 7H record player/ gaming console is exactly what our retro room needs. You would need to purchase your record player separately, but what a great piece of furniture, and perfectly finished in a low sheen walnut. Honestly just saying record player brings back so many great memories, the whole room makes me smile.
