And since you’re here, check out our artwork. We have styles for any décor.
Start with a floor plan, even before you’ve decided on a style
Area rugs are a great way to set the tone of a room – Choose a rug with a pattern as it will hide stains and wear
When selecting a sofa for a dual-purpose space, look for sophisticated and comfortable, which is perfect for a living/family room
Remember to balance the style of each component; for example, an antique mirror with a modern coffee table
Try placing a bookshelf between the wall and the sofa for a different look. A bookshelf can also work as a space divider
Add greenery into your space; especially flowers, which can be changed out every week
Think about conversation when you’re laying out a space. Adding a bench is an interesting way to add additional seating
