When buying furniture, certain terminology can help you narrow down the selection and find the pieces you really want. Know what you are looking for is the only way to truly find it. Before you start shopping, familiarize yourself with the following terms so you can feel more confident in the furniture store:
Accent colors and furniture are a great decorating tool for your home. Accent colors are contrasting hues that bring more aesthetic appeal to a space. Accent furniture is made up of smaller pieces like chairs that complement larger pieces and tie a room together. Using accents helps you create a décor of your own.
If you want to create a multifunctional room in your home, a daybed is a great piece to use. This furnishing can be used as a place to sit during the day but doubles as a bed. Whether you want to use this as a permanent bed or just a space for guests, a daybed helps you make the most out of your home.
This design term refers to furniture and accessories that have clean lines and architectural features. This furniture style developed from 20th century styles, most specifically the German Bauhaus School of Architecture.
If you prefer older styles in your home design, you should probably focus your search on antique pieces. Furniture that is considered antique is at least one hundred years old. You can often use antique pieces to create a more traditional décor.

Take your gold jewelry back to its original aesthetic appeal by shining it at home. Gold is one of the few metals that does not tarnish, but it can get dirty. It is easy to clean, though, with products that you can find at home.
If you are dealing with a plain piece of gold that is not embellished with stones or other metals, you can clean it in a bowl of warm water mixed with mild dish washing detergent. Let it soak for about twenty minutes then dry it with a clean cloth. If you are cleaning jewelry with gemstones, dampen a cloth with the cleaning mixture and gently dab it onto the jewelry. Once you are finished, you can hang the piece upside down to let it air dry.
Find a great selection of estate, antique, and modern jewelry at Home Consignment Center to add to your collection. We always have new pieces coming through our doors. To learn more about our Newport Beach location, call (949) 250-0326.

Leather furniture adds comfort and elegance to a home décor. If you are ready to bring something new to your interior design, you should shop around until you find pieces that really work in your home. Learning more about leather styles helps you figure out which variety does the most to meet your needs. These tips will help you choose leather furniture that helps you make the most of your interior design:
When aniline leather is created, it is placed in a huge drum to dye. This method allows the leather to really grab the color. Without an extra layer of protective coating, it becomes a soft, supple leather that feels wonderful to the touch. Furniture made from aniline leather is usually the most expensive variety.
Semi-aniline, or protected aniline, leather is also placed into a drum to add color. Once it is successfully died, there is a little bit of coating placed on the exterior of the material. This barrier makes semi-aniline leather more able to resist stains and it is less likely to fade than the aniline options.
Instead of being completely dyed, color in pigmented leather is only applied to the very surface of the material. This leads to colors that are not as vibrant as leather that is dyed, but it also has a thicker layer of protection from scratches, stains, and fading. Pigmented leather is usually more affordable than other varieties, but it does not feel as soft.
When you are ready to buy stylish, durable leather furniture for your home, look no further than Home Consignment Center in Newport Beach to find a plethora of amazing furniture and accessories that fit perfectly into your home décor.

Your bedroom can be more than just the place you go to sleep. With the right décor, you can transform even a small bedroom into a relaxing retreat. When you have a small bedroom, start by creating a focal point. This might be a headboard or a window, depending on how your room is set up. While it might seem like a good idea to get a big bed to compensate for the small space, your room will actually feel larger if the bed is slightly shorter and does not have a footboard. Maximize your space by storing items under the bed, and use a closet organizer system to keep all of your clothing and shoes in order. You can choose darker colors to create a cozy nest, or brighten things up with lighter colors for a more cheerful bedroom.
You can find bedroom furniture to fit any size room at Home Consignment Center of Austin. Give us a call at (512) 686-4763 to inquire about our current inventory. We get new items every day, so you’re sure to find something to suit your needs.
