The Alora, Part of our NEW VIVA Collection!

The Alora Collection, available exclusive at The RoomPlace, has a unique look. It’s "Sophisticated with attitude," says our Upholstery Buyer.  This 2-piece living room sectional is quite sophisticated on its own platform.  It’s dove gray top grain leather goes beautifully with the warm neutral colors and patterns of the pillows and the accent chair.

The Alora leather living room setYou can feel the quality!  The thick, top grain leather is attractive to the eye and makes for a luxurious feel.  The seats are made with high foam density for extra comfort; a quality that makes it long-lasting too.  The top stitching you see isn’t just for show – it actually strengthens the seams. Supporting it all is a frame made of hardwood so strong it comes with a lifetime warranty.

Finally, it’s curvy, not blocky.  Some sectionals can be hard-edged and boxy.  The Alora lines have a softer flow with its curved, open front.  Note the wood feet, another touch that’s a great design element.  This stylish group is perfect for everyday living with a splash of sophistication.

Viva is one of the best leather sofa brands and it’s only available at the Chicago furniture company, The RoomPlace.

A little lighting can go a long way

Home lighting brightens more than just a surface. Lights and overhead lighting emphasizes home design elements, adds warmth to rooms and creates its own visual that is interesting to the eye.  Experts say that lighting is just as important as the furniture it illuminates when it comes to bringing a room together.

Home lighting isn’t just about the light bulb – It’s about brightness, contour, shading and impact. There are two main types of interior light: direct and indirect. Direct lighting refers to overhead fixtures and ceiling lights, while indirect, or ambient, lighting includes desk, table and floor lamps. When thinking about ambient lighting consider the mood you want for your room and how that will impact your house. Do you want to create a darker, dreamier (think candle-lit) space or a living room that has a lot of lighting. Whatever option you prefer, home decor lighting will generate great reactions from your guests and family. 

The importance of well-positioned ambient lighting from table lamps and floor lamps comes from their mobility. Different shades of lighting also play off the color schemes around rooms enriching deep jewel tones and softening bright pastels. For instance, a table lamp with a generous cream lampshade casts a warm pool of light perfect for a reading corner.  One design tip to follow if you live in a tight space is to use more lighting. Rooms that are full of light appear larger to the eye. Be trendy and practical.  For example, check out the On Demand floor lamp that is both extremely stylish and very practical. The dimmer allows you to control how much light comes into the room and ultimately lets you choose how your sofas, armoires and entertainment centers really shine.  A little light can go a long way to enhance the appearance of a room.

Finesse and Functionality of Modern Furniture Design

The appealing style of modern furniture complements today’s interior design choices. The contemporary styling offers crisp, clean lines that are relaxing while also being functional at the same time.

modern bedroom furnitureMany modern bedrooms are created with green living in mind by those conscious of producing ecologically sound furniture with construction materials having the least impact on the environment. Modern furniture design also appeals to those favoring European and Italian styling that harmonizes finesse with functionality.

While some modern bedroom furniture is still made from solid wood, furniture manufacturers have used material ingenuity to create customized designs from plastic, glass, steel and chrome. The use of alternative materials has created furniture that is lightweight, damage resistant and less expensive than its solid wood counterparts. Modern materials have also been treated for soil and water resistance so the durability of modern furniture is further enhanced, which is especially important for families with young children.

The RoomPlace offers modern bedroom sets in a variety of different styles including the platform bed, poster beds and storage bed sets. Because our store specializes in total room design, each showroom offers a complete room design to choose matching pieces of bedroom furniture. Shoppers can expect to find modern beds coupled with armoires, shelving as well as nightstands, chests and desks. We also offer a full line of modern living room and dining room pieces to complement every décor. With 23 locations, everyone is sure to find a range of colors and brands to suit individual styling preferences.


Updating Home Design with Coffee Tables

Coffee tables furniture requires a little pre planning to use effectively in home design. Too many coffee tables and end tables in one room can mean instant clutter and potential bumping or tripping hazards while too few will leave guests putting glasses on window sills and floors.

The Georgio CollectionDesign choices for accessory tables should include an ample coffee table to complement the area in front of sofas and sectionals. It will be the primary focal point for gathering with end tables on each side to frame the main sofa sitting area. Side tables for accent chairs and formal sitting areas are important pieces, and depending on the room’s design, sofa tables can also be used for couches with exposed backs.

For rooms with bold designs and colors, it is best to match all tables to provide a sense of continuity. It accents bolder pieces and doesn’t take away from the overall design effect. When using tables that do not match, it is important to keep a consistency in either color or construction materials of each piece. Contemporary and traditional pieces can be used together if their colors coordinate or feature similar materials like metal or glass.

The best part of using tables is the fun in bringing them all together. Our store has a large selection at affordable prices in a broad array of solid wood, glass and metals to complement any home décor. Visit one of our 23 stores or online to find tables to suit your home decorating needs.
