As we all know, choosing the right furniture is more than falling in love with its initial beauty. The style and construction of the furniture has to last many years, so considering the distinct details and quality of construction of a particular piece is a good way to help seal the deal and a little pro guidance never hurts. I met up with furniture designer Reagan Hayes at Fashionphile to view a few of her pieces. She also gave me a few tips for finding the perfect furniture piece. Choosing home furniture items can be a lot of fun – and also kind of a nightmare. It can be difficult to find useful, comfortable pieces that reflect your personal style and combine to create a cohesive interior. You also likely won't want to throw everything out, and that brings about the question of which pieces to keep, reupholster, or otherwise modify to fit with the look of your room. In short, choosing furniture requires consideration of a number of both practical and aesthetic factors.
During the 1970s, furniture began to lose its sleek quality and started to become a bit bulkier and chunky. Avocado greens, harvest golds, oranges and earthy browns dominated the color palettes of furniture and accompanying decor. As for the 1980s, that was when art deco heavily influenced the decorating style, as did South Western motifs. Country styles were also popular. Teal and mauve are two colors that were popular in most of the styles, which included patterns ranging from geometrics to florals. In a nutshell, even though these furniture and interior decor styles were diverse, they all fall under the umbrella of being retro style. Today, you'll see nods to a wide range retro styles in modern collections.
Bohemian Furniture. Bohemian furniture can't be bought in just any old store. Bohemian rooms tend to be full of furniture collected over time. Second hand and vintage items are right at home in these rooms. Shapes and sizes aren't nearly as important as they are in other styles of rooms. Each piece should be special and tell a story no matter what it looks like. No one should be able to walk into a bohemian styled room and be able to tell where you got the furniture. With all that said, the most common type of furniture you'll find in bohemian rooms is Victorian in nature. Not dainty mind you, but the kind of furniture you could become engulfed in as you peruse the works of literary masters. Think chaises and fainting couches in saturated colors with dark carved wood frames.
