The Magical Power of Textiles at Home

What makes a house home often is the coziness and warmth that we are feeling. Mid-century modern and stark minimalism have dominated our home furnishing market for a long, long time. When we pay attention to the details of these styles, the interiors usually ,from floor to ceiling, to walls ,  most of furniture are often hard-surfaced. They inevitably give us a very cold feeling. All of the hard-surface can hardly absorb the sounds. But textiles just do the opposite. So if we would like to create a soothing and quiet home, make sure you use different textile applications for our home. Today, we are going to talk about  7 benefits of using textiles at home.

1. They bring in fresh colors, textures and patterns. By doing so, they give depth, dimension and interest to any space. They simply make us feel excited.

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day. We tried backyard picnic, backyard cocktails, backyard BBQ and ShabyShabu. So for this Mother’s Day weekends, we decided to try something special and different— charcuterie boards paired with some wines.  That way, we could really slow down, chill out and enjoy every small bite.

It’s All in Details

One of fun things for us to do an interior design project is to customize a piece of furniture that not only fits into client’s space, satisfies client’s needs, but also brings in intricate sophistication by focusing on details. Yes, small details truly matter and they are the final touches to create a dream home with sophisticated interiors you have being desired for many years. Those details can be if your LED chandelier is warm-dimmable, or your home office chair gives your options to recline with comfort, or the sizes of your sofa is long enough and deep enough for you and your family chill out on it or the structure and cushion of the sofa support ultimate comfort  and durability.

Here is an example how we focus on the details of a  lounge chair we customized for the client for her home office. The client wanted a super stylish chair she was able to seat on and relax during her stay there. And the challenge is that only space  that is available is a small corner   and the office door is  pretty narrow for any large scale of furniture to get in.   In order to satisfy client’s needs, we decided to do our own design from scratch and customized the pieces locally. There are a lot of behind-of-door work and one thing I can share here is all of the trims and piping we used on the chair, ottoman and pillow to delivery that glamorous designer-look.
