A Coffee Table to complement your Sofas

Posted on August 7, 2014 at 7:23 pm

There are plenty of coffee tables out there when it comes to choosing a style that suits your home. Whether you have a lounge, a living room or a sitting room, a sofa is a must and so too is a coffee table, especially when you have guests over, and it’s important to put some thought into the right coffee table for your sofas.

Leather sofas look great with a solid oak coffee table, and perhaps one that has an aged look. Glass coffee tables can look great with modern furniture, but they may not be the best if you often have young children playing in the room. There are many modern coffee tables that almost provide a hovering effect, and they offer layers for magazines and books, while the tip layer is the ideal place to place your drinks.

If you’ve spent time finding the right sofa for your home then make sure you apply the same thought to your coffee table because they’re both important fixtures in your home.

An Executive Desk for a Home Office

Posted on July 26, 2014 at 5:34 pm

Nothing quite brings an executive style quite like a traditional office desk carefully cut by specialist carpenters. The more aged an executive desk is the better, while they tend to be finished with intricate cut out designs and a shined top surface.

If you really want your home office to flaunt an executive style than finishing the wooden desk in a dark brown can be beneficial. Woods which show signs of ages can also actually be beneficial and if you‘re having a custom made office desk you should choose wood with character, like an aged solid oak timber.

There are many different kinds of executive office desks but it’s important to go large if you have the space. These do often contain drawers either side, while there’s room for an executive seat in the middle. It’s a type of desk that can look good with a book on top or a new modern computer, and it’s a table that will really make an office stand on its own.

Maintaining a Leather Sofa

Posted on January 20, 2014 at 5:27 pm

Leather can be very difficult to maintain, especially when it is upholstery. In fact, before you buy a leather sofa, you should first understand how to care for it, such as how to use it, and what products to apply to it when cleaning.

Leather is a very popular material to use in sofa’s, and for good reason, but it does have some drawbacks to it. Firstly, you should make sure that it isn’t in direct sunlight, which will cause damage when the sofa is in sunlight for extended periods of time. Many cleaning products which would be fine with cheaper fabrics are not appropriate for leather and will likely cause damage. There are cleaning products exclusively for leather which will ensure that the quality of the leather is maintained.

Avoiding drying out is very important in leather upholstery, as when it gets old and dry, it will begin to crack. When the leather begins to get stiff, it is a good indicator that something needs to be done, and hopefully it will be remedied before it begins to break.

Dirt can also have a deteriorating affect on leather so making sure that it is consistently clean is important; using a damp towel will usually clean it, but then damp can affect the leather as well; another thing to avoid. Do not heat it up to dry it out; just let it air dry after wiping it down with a dry towel.
