Choosing Furniture for Your Living Room

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

Modern interiors,living-room with the modern furniture

The living room should be one of the most welcoming rooms of your home. If you want to create a stylish and livable living room design, you have to start by choosing the right furniture. Keep reading for some tips on shopping for the perfect pieces for your ideal living room:

Buy Sizes that Work with Your Space

One of the biggest decorating mistakes that homeowners make is choosing furniture that does not fit the scale of the room. Take detailed measurements of the living room so you have a good idea of the canvas with which you are working. If you have a large, open living room, you might want to create a few different furniture sections that make the room feel more welcoming. If you have a small living room, though, you should choose smaller pieces that do not overpower the space.

Decide on a Focal Point

It can seem overpowering to design an entire living room décor, but if you break the project up into sections, it becomes much more manageable. Choose a piece that you love to serve as a focal point and design around it. Whether this piece is a fabulous sofa or a beautiful and unique coffee table, this one anchor piece makes it much easier to decide on other pieces that bring the entire room together.

Create Plenty of Seating

It is important to incorporate a few different seating options to make your living room as comfortable as possible. Start with a sofa or a sectional and add onto it with a loveseat and an accent chair. Whether you have a large or a small living room, adding a few different kinds of furniture for seating gives you a stylish and functional living room design.

Whether you want to replace one piece of living room furniture or redesign the whole room, Home Consignment Center has what you need to do it right. Our Newport Beach location always has great new pieces in our inventory to help you find what you want. Call (949) 250-0326 to learn more.

Essential Furniture Arrangement Tips

Before you buy furniture for your home, it’s a good idea to have a vision of how that furniture will fit into a room. The first rule, no matter what room you’re furnishing, is to know the dimensions of the room, as well as the measurements for all entrances, doors, and hallways that you’ll have to go through to get the furniture to its final location.

Choose furniture pieces in different sizes, and perhaps even slightly different shapes or styles, to create dimension and interest. Position furniture in a way that matches the function of the room—sofas should face each other if you’ll be doing a lot of talking with family or guests, for example.

Busting Myths About Leather Furniture

Busting Myths About Leather Furniture

Leather furniture is a beautiful and durable addition for any home. A lot of people tend to shy away from it, however, because they believe certain myths about the material. Keep reading to learn the truth about leather so you can finally enjoy the look of it in your home:

Myth: Leather Furniture Will Not Last As Long As Other Materials

Since it is a natural material, people tend to believe that leather will not last. In fact, the natural aging process of leather makes it even more beautiful than when you bought it. Leather pieces change and grow with your family and they can become a beautiful addition to your home for many years to come. Instead of suffering major wear and tear like other materials, a great piece of leather furniture really comes into its own as it ages.

Myth: Leather Furniture Is Too Expensive

There are plenty of affordable leather options available that fit nicely into your budget. Shop at the local consignment store to find leather at even better prices. Fabric furniture gets worn down over time, but leather continues to get better through the years. Even if you pay a little bit less for a fabric sofa or armchair, it will not offer the same kind of value as leather pieces.

Myth: Leather Is Hard to Maintain

Whether you have kids or pets, leather is actually very easy to keep clean and looking great. You should use a quality leather conditioner once every 6-12 months to keep the material supple. For most basic cleanings, you will only have to use a dust cloth and the vacuum cleaner. If you keep the furniture away from direct sunlight, you can prevent fading and maintain its original aesthetic appeal.

Dressing Up Your Coffee Table

Dressing Up Your Coffee Table

No living room or family room would be complete without a comfortable sofa, a few end chairs, and a coffee table. While you don’t actually have to put coffee on your coffee table, there are a few adornments that can help tie the room together. Have a few coasters at the ready so you and your family can put your coffee—and other beverages—on the table without leaving any rings. A coffee table book full of interesting photographs or a few lifestyle magazines are also a good choice, as long as your table doesn’t look cluttered. Adding candlesticks is a great way to dress up your coffee table for the holidays or when you’re entertaining guests, and you can put fresh-cut flowers in decorative vases to welcome in the spring and summer seasons.

Choosing the Right Furniture for Your Home

The furniture you use in your home completely changes the look and feel of the space. Before you buy furniture, you should consider the décor you want to create so you can choose pieces that really meet your style and function needs. Use the following tips to help narrow your furniture selection and find furniture that fits perfectly into your home life:

Shop for Quality

Whether you want to build a modern or a traditional décor, you should always shop for furniture that is built well. Take the time to check out the craftsmanship of any piece you plan to buy to ensure that it will be a functional piece that can enhance your décor for many years. Shopping at the consignment shop helps you find high quality furniture at prices you can afford so you can create your ideal décor with pieces that are built to last.

Find Your Style

Even if you do not have a particular decorating style in mind when you get to the store, you should still give yourself the opportunity to gravitate toward pieces that appeal to you visually. Once you start to see the kind of furniture that attracts you, you can determine your true decorating style, which will make it easier to shop for more furniture and accessories.

Consider Your Available Space

The size of furniture you buy is also an important factor to consider. This will ensure that your new furniture works well inside of your space. Take measurements before you start to shop so you know what kind of pieces you need to comfortably fill your space.

At Home Consignment Center, we bring you some of the best furniture options in the Bay Area.

Home Consignment Center Helps You to Design a Modern-Style Living Room

Friday, August 1st, 2014

How to Design a Modern-Style Living Room

If you love clean lines and open floor spaces, you would probably love a modern-style living room for your home. Use the following tips to find furniture and accessories that help you add the right amount of modern appeal to your space:

Choose Your Colors Wisely

Color plays a huge impact on the overall appeal of a modern decorating style. If you want to use a bright, bold shade like red, you should tone it down with a neutral shade like white or grey to get the right balance. You can also choose a monochromatic color scheme for your space to keep a light, open feeling in your interior. If you decorate with patterns, you might want to consider mixing a few different patterns to keep the interior design visually interesting.

Find Furniture with Clean Lines

Clean lines and geometric shapes are the cornerstone of a modern living room. If you want to incorporate this design style into your space, you should start off with clean, linear furniture. Once you find your couch, your coffee table, and a few accent chairs, you will have a foundation that steers you toward the best kind of accessories.

Use Eye-Catching Accessories Sporadically

You can draw even more attention to your new living room décor with a few well-placed accessories that add depth and texture to the room. Instead of using bright colors and patterns throughout the space, for example, reserve them for a couple of throw pillows or a really great area rug. You might even want to use a fantastic piece of artwork as the focal point for the room. Using accessories to add some drama to the décor is a great way to keep things modern and still bring some of your personality to the interior design.

Come to Home Consignment Center to find fabulous pieces of furniture that help you infuse your living room with a modern décor. We bring you some of the best furniture finds in Newport Beach at hard-to-beat prices. For more information, check out our website or call (949) 250-0326.
