How To Make Your Home Uniquely Yours

Throughout  the course of the past ten years, we have seen a trend toward more minimalistic designs in the interior space of a home.  Some years the trends were more in demand than others, but we have never lost sight of clean lines and simplistic styles.  As we venture towards a new wave in interior design, we see that minimalism is not necessarily what the public is demanding and  designers are meeting their demands.

Chic Interior with many accessories

Although we still would like to have a clean lined home, many individuals are turning towards “retro” and “vintage” details to give their home  one of a kind appeal.  In our lifetime, we often inherit items that are handed down to us and have no idea what to do with them.  We are faced with the decision of restoring them, revamping them into something else, or throwing them away.  Many times there is sentimental attachment to these items so we keep them and relegate them to a space where no one gets to see them.

The good news now is that because we are leaning towards a more inviting era of design and accessories, it is becoming more acceptable to have a busy, yet organized, shelf or table in your space.  The idea with such a space is to create an environment that is appealing to the eye.  This doesn’t mean that you have to decorate sparsely in your space but it does mean that you have to be well organized.  When creating an environment like this, you can place items which were once stored away safely, and incorporate a style which everyone will be able to enjoy.

Creativity in decorating is key when organizing.  Yes, you can gather ideas from blogs and magazines, but the truth is that you may never be able to replicate what you see exactly, so improvising and creating what looks good to you is the best solution.  One suggestion is that it is generally easier to buy a few items and incorporate them in a display with items which are uniquely yours such as things that have been passed down to you.  Here at Fabrics and Frames we host a gallery from artists which are represented around the United States.  In our collection you find unique items which you won’t see in your neighbor’s house.  Sometimes collecting from an artist is a way to create a one-of- a- kind style.  Another way to create a unique environment is to upholster pieces in unusual fabrics  not seen in the everyday store.

Whatever your taste may be, it should reflect who you are as a person.  Simplistic style is great for some, but allowing yourself to create using your own unique items and creating nostalgic memories can be a way to enjoy your heritage as well as your home!

Feng Shui vs. Accessorizing…

A common debate in the interior design world is the question of how many items should be placed in a room.  Based off the theory of Feng Shui, a system of laws considered to govern spatial arrangement and orientation in relation to the flow of energy, this theory argues that allowing too many objects in the home can create bad energy for your space.

Many studies about cluttered spaces  have shown that a cluttered interior can affect  a person’s psyche. Those who practice a feng shui lifestyle will argue that having a cluttered space will lead to fatigue, hopelessness, and poverty.   One may ask, How can having objects in my space be bad for me?  I  have personally even considered this question myself, but after researching this subject I have been  swayed from over accessorizing towards a more minimalistic style.

Feng Shui Interior

Through research I have found that when you have too much “stuff” in one area, a person will become visually and psychologically drained of energy, making the individual less motivated in their personal accomplishments in life.   With each item that is placed in the space, you create stimulation for the mind to draw energy towards. When the item is pleasant such as a piece of artwork, you may notice that the space becomes inviting, but if the item is negative, such as a stack of bills, then you become unmotivated and less likely to do something about it.

Here at Fabrics and Frames we tend to work with  clients whom primarily have traditional tastes in furniture .  One thing that I have noticed is that traditionalist tend to be collectors.  Collecting objects such as fine china, thumb nails, tapestries, etc. will fill their rooms, making the space visually stimulating.  One common issue that they tend to talk about is that their items generate a numerous amount of dust, keeping them in constant  frustration about cleanliness.  Feng Shui talks about how a person can become hopeless because they acquire too much, and overwhelm themselves psychologically to the point of frustration because of the upkeep of the items.  This is one reason many minimalists tend have less stuff in their homes.

Cluttered Bedroom

Finally the last key issue of having too many accessories is that it can lead to financial setbacks.    Collecting accessories in abundance can turn out to be quite costly.  One feature of high-end homes or spaces is that most of the cost is spent in the ornamental features of the space and less on the accessories.  This allows the space to have a rich look, yet have a clean space.

Spring cleaning is right around the corner, and with these tips in mind, it is a great time to clean your space so that it becomes more Feng Shui while showing off your character.   By donating  or selling items which you no longer use , you can make space for new patterns.  With the extra money that you may get from selling old objects, reupholstering can be a great way to give your space a new face lift, without accumulating more and therefore your room will remain more minimalistic.

Making your Dining Room Aesthetically Functional for You!

As more and more individuals are leaning towards a more contemporary lifestyle, the nature of minimalism has permeated our living spaces.  Contemporary designs are generally considered to be lacking ornamental embellishments.  As someone who has designed for many different genres of furniture styles, some advise is  to design for comfort regardless of style or taste.

When you design with comfort in mind, you do not compromise the overall look of the space for comfort. As you begin your quest for the perfect design you must find a niche between comfort and style to accommodate your area.  For this upcoming new year, the forecast of trend setting areas in the home is the dining area.  Although for the past decade or so, the formal dining area was seen as obsolete, the  need to have a space to entertain family and friends during the holiday season has risen in demand.

Randall+Parson+Chair

When scouting out for new dining chairs, a common dilemma is that the chair tends to be built so that hard-surface, poor quality, and comfort  are prime attributes to the aesthetics.  The new dining trends will highlight softer, larger, and an overall more comfortable experience.  Although you will see a difference in price from the moderately inexpensive chair which can possibly retail around $200 each to very expensive custom pieces, an investment in dining chairs that will last and be comfortable is almost a no-brainier…

Custom creating a design for a quality chair can be what your space needs.  Since dining chairs are not as large as fully upholstered chairs, you are able to add pattern to them and continue to have a peaceful environment.  Although the trend generally has solids pushing the way for design so that small details such as: tufting, nail heads, trims and buttons can primarily be the focus.  Remember that this is not the only reason why solids are used in furniture upholstery.  When a manufacturer decides on a particular fabric to be on its design, the majority reasoning behind a solid is to keep the process simple thereby less expensive.

Trendy-Dining-Room-in-Turquoise-Kitchen-Decor

Solids by their nature do not have patterns, meaning that there is no pattern matching to take into consideration in the manufacturing process. It is difficult to create a unique chair that is specific to you room if you are limited to a solid fabric unless you add embellishments. Even if you like to use solids because of its simplistic style, a way to have your chairs maintain their high-end appeal is by creating a hybrid or calico look.   Hybrid designs  are when you have two different fabrics incorporated into one design.  Dining chairs usually have solid in-backs and seats with a pattern out-back.  A benifit to this type of style is that this is an easy re-upholstery job when your pattern becomes out-dated or worn. Another benefit to this technique is that the interior fabric where you sit can be very durable and the exterior fabric can be more decorative giving you the best of both worlds.

Here at Fabrics and Frames we specialize in high-end quality design.  Creating custom looks for the past 35 years has allowed us to perfect our designs so that they last a lifetime.  Investing in something which will keep your family, guests, and friends comfortable is something which we take pride in.  With a lead design staff who specializing in today’s trend setting techniques, the choice of getting a well manufactured USA made product is unarguable.  With general lead times of 3-4 weeks, you will find that Fabrics and Frames will be your go-to place when it comes to pleasing your aesthetic needs whether you are looking for dining room chairs or an entire room of beautiful upholstered furniture.

Symmetry in your Interior

When consulting with a new client I have have found that before we can collaborate on the design of a new space it is very important to find out what type of design my client  will feel most comfortable embracing in their space.  Symmetry in the space is an important aspect of the design plan.  Currently in design the trendy thing is to be less symmetrical or asymmetrical.  By adding bright colors to a space and embracing the idea of an asymmetrical design, you can create a look which redefines the color block look.

Many individuals already use this concept of asymmetrical designs in nail designs and fashion, but this look is just beginning to emerge in interiors .   To embrace this look you need to first choose one color which will become the dominate color in the design.  From there you will carefully choose other colors which work with this color as well as embrace the overall feel that you are aiming to achieve. It is adamant that your space brings you comfort whether it is energy or a sense of peace so your accent colors are very important to your final design. By choosing this design style, you are able to keep crisp, clean lines giving you a space with an overall style that appears to be more contemporary.  This will allow your accessories, which are the icing to the cake, to stand out and show off their unique qualities to both you and your guests.

Asymmetrical Colors in Interiors

Please keep in mind when designing, the look is not only about color.  Symmetry is also important to keep in mind as a guideline to placing objects in the room.  Well-spaced planned interiors  will allow your client to use existing furniture and mix it with new pieces.  Although it would be ideal to only use furniture that fits perfectly in your space, the reality is that we generally have to work with what we have.  There are many times that someone will have three chairs and one sofa, or a scenario where you have 2 different chairs in the room.  This is a situation in which asymmetrical decisions must be made.  Take into consideration that when the chairs are separate from each other it is ok for them to be in two different patterns.   Having odd pairs in the room will allow for more seating as long as your space is large enough and doesn’t become to crowded. Remember the most important thing in designing a space is that the client is comfortable with the finished room and feels joy when walking into it!living-room-57710-1900

Here at Fabrics and Frames we think outside the box and try to accommodate our clients with design solutions which fit their needs.  There is no right or wrong way in design but as designers we try to use our knowledge and expertise to give our clients a space that is not only ergonomical and beautiful but also functions for the individual.

Heart of the Home.

As summer begins to fade, and autumn enters our lives, the temperatures begin to drop and the leaves begin to change colors. Just as the weather changes so do our concerns.  Changing of our wardrobes is one, getting the kids back to school another, and finally the holidays arriving.  As we know, the season spring generally is known for sprucing up and cleaning out our homes, but what do we need to focus on during the fall and winter months?

Autumn Kitchen 2013

This season is full of family get togethers and events.  With Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas just around the corner, you may start to ask questions such as “what shall I bring to parties, and how can I impress my guests?”  Both of these  lead us to the heart of the home, the kitchen.

The kitchen is the place where we do most of our cooking and gathering, regardless if its making Halloween candies, cooking a Thanksgiving dinner or baking Christmas cookies.  This is the space in your home that will get the most use. The kitchen is generally the gathering place for both your family and your guests.  Many individuals don’t realize that this area is not always as comfortable for their guests as it should be.  Small touches such as banquets and barstools are ways to incorporate more seating in a space to make the area more comfortable.

If you find that you have all the seating space that your kitchen needs, you may want to reconsider what shape your dining chairs are in.  Even if you think that they are in great condition because the fabric still looks new, what you may not notice is that your foam has begun to break down from all the wear and tear of people sitting on them over the years.   Foam generally will have a lifespan of 5-7 years before its starts to break down.  Even if this is a space where you don’t generally sit, your foam can still be damaged.  If you have chairs which are over 7 years old, the inside may start to harden, leading to crumbling. Or it can break down and become flat. When this starts to happen you no longer have the support in the chairs to make you and your guests comfortable.

If you notice that your once comfortable chairs are now hard or have become less supportive, reupholstering is a great solution. Unfortunately it is not usually to save the original fabric if your foam has worn out, but with the expert designers at Fabrics and Frames, you can find a fabric that is comparable or that will coordinate well ensuring that your chairs remain clean, taught, and comfortable for the holidays. This would also be a great time to update your look to add a bit of excitement to a room that is used by everyone who enters your home and you will have your guests gushing with complements!

Autumn and Winter Design Colors for 2013.

In the design world, the colors that are chosen for each season are often based off  the trends which are set by the leaders of design.  Their picks are often inspired by the colors of the world around them.  Weather and nature are topics that everyone can understand and relate to, so many times colors chosen by the designers are inspired by the colors of the Earth.

For the upcoming season of Autumn and Winter 2013 leading into 2014, you will notice that designers have given us several options.  These options are determined by mood of design and an overall aesthetic achievement.  There are four categories that are influencing this year’s upcoming interior look: Flint Colors, Storm Colors, Clash Colors, and Alpine Colors.

Flint Colors: “The Rock Inspired Look”

Flint Colours

Flint is a marbleized rock found in nature which has many different colors incorporated into it.   Reminiscent of the Earth’s natural colors, this combinations of colors like: Neanderthal, Cromagnon, Lascaux, Mammoth, Knapped, Bone, Slate, and Foraged keep the interior space calm and inviting.    The look is easy to maintain because it is made up of many colors which are subtle and neutral in tone, allowing an easy transition through the years.

Storm Colors: “The Dark and Calm Look”

Storm

For a number of years now, grey tones and dark colors have been leading the design trends.  Pulling inspiration from natural storm colors, such as: sandstorm, hurricane, martian , flash, cumulus, lumen, tumult, and thunder, this look transforms your home into a cozy sophisticated interior space.  By highlighting minimal colors and encouraging a slight metallic touch  gives a twilight touch to your space.

Storm Colored Interiors

Clash Colors: “Bringing Energy to the Room”

Clash Colors

The colors which  inspire the Clash look, pull from the energetic, raw and brush colors that are used in advertising and graphic design.  This contemporary look infuses the room with colors like: lambeth, dandy, persimmon, laudanum, Havana, canary, melancholy, and jadeite. These colors bring an energy to a room that the previous colors have ignored. For those who have small spaces that need a punch, this color combination can highlight that perfect niche.

Clash Colored Interiors

Alpine Colors:  ” Tranquility from The Alps”

Alpine Colors

The European mountain range, The Alps, have also influenced the colors of this season.  The tones and colors which are used in this palette pull from the large animals , graceful ambiance, and woodland and country flower theme which the landscape has to offer.  This particular space covers eight countries in the European land, allowing variation in hues to emerge such as: larch, cedar, juniper, pinecone, fondue, firefrost, drizzle, and gluwen.  All tones can be combined to create a layout which is inviting, yet tranquil.

Bringing Fashion into your Interior

This  week Fabrics and Frames is celebrating their 100th blog posting.  A common theme throughout many of our blogs has been the way designers seldom stick to one genre of design.  Many of them tend to influence many other areas, such as graphics, interiors, and art allowing their artistic talents to be spread to an even larger audience.

Fashion in Interiors

Since Fabrics and Frames offers thousands of different fabric choices through different vendors, we often notice that many fashion designers have teamed up with some of the leading brands in interior design.  Some have decided to team up with particular furniture brands which offer exclusives to their designs, while others offer their fabrics through specific vendors like Kravet, S. Harris, and Robert Allen.

Issac Mizrahi for S. Harris

Since we are a manufacturer of custom furniture and assist many furniture companies around the Dallas metroplex, we have found ourselves working with lines from several designers.  Regardless if its Jean Paul Gautiers, Missoni, Issac Mizrahi, Jacklyn Smith, or Sonia Rykiel we have noticed that quality lines hold specific detail in the fabrics and when they are juxtaposed with craftsmanship it allows the overall product to look fabulous.

Since we consider ourselves to be artists of design, we like to support others who share our artistic hunger to create some of the most innovative and trendy decor.  That’s why we offer fabric lines through high end vendors to allow our clients choices on how they want their homes portrayed to their guests.  If you are looking for someone to help assist you in creating your dream home, please contact Fabrics and Frames.

Neon Interiors

Today’s latest designer trends incorporate the color spectrum’s brightest colors.  Neon colors can be seen from fashion, to art, and even in upholstery.  Since these colors are so vivid and vibrant, this color trend tends to have a call to action appeal and rapidly draws the eye to the area where the color is presented.

Kleurentrends-2013-Milou-Ket-Bright-Kaleidoscope

Often the idea of using bright colors in an interior space will scare the average decorator because it is difficult to manage and has a short lifespan.  If you are daring and choose to decorate using this color scheme, then a tip is to use neon colors sparingly in areas that will highlight a great accessory, art piece, or small area.  This will keep you from overdoing the color, yet it will con-temporize the space.

neon-interiorgreen-yellow-furniture-table

When you use these colors in a minimalistic way, you should incorporate them with neutral color schemes.   Just keep in mind that neon colors are currently a trendy way to update your home and trends typically do not stay around forever.  By keeping these colors limited to smaller accessories  it will be easier for you to dispose of the trend once it is past its prime.

For those who really want to use the color in a larger piece of furniture, carved framed furniture is great for the neon look.  When you decorate with antique styled furniture, your interior space becomes much more eclectic if you choose modern accessories to incorporate in the space.  One of the most classic trends that has been around for many years is lacquered furniture frames and is suitable for these neon colors.  This look allows you to choose your favorite color for the frames, regardless of shade, and incorporate it in your interior.

Lacquered Furniture Art

There are many different ways to use great color in your interior.  Although using neon colors is not one of the most traditional ways to decorate, it is currently one of the most trendy ways.  Another popular way to incorporate neon colors in your room scheme is by using patterned fabrics.  Most often fabrics incorporating very unique colors can be very expensive.  A great way around this is to create your own design , then getting an online fabric company to print it onto a fabric for you.  This will ensure that you will love the finished product and give you a sense of accomplishment as well.  Once you have your fabric, you can place it on small occasional chairs, curtains, or small ottomans and pillows.  Fabrics and Frames is a furniture manufacturer that allows customers to bring in their own materials. So if you choose to design your own fabric or are just searching for the perfect one, Fabrics and Frames is the place to get all of your interior design trends implemented.

The Evolution of the Chaise Lounge

Chaise lounges and daybeds are two of the most popular pieces of furniture that consumers want to own for many reasons.  In today’s contemporary design, this piece is used to cozy up with your favorite loved ones, makes a perfect reading space, and is a great way to create a inviting family styled hangout in your room.  Since this item is currently so popular in modern day design, I decided to explore its history and its interesting past. How long has the chaise lounge been around and how many different styles does it lend itself to?

The first chaise lounge was documented around the time of  3100-2890 BC.  The Egyptians  initially designed of this style of furniture for their pharaohs, constructing the daybed  originally from palm sticks and rawhide.  After realizing that this design was not long-lasting they started creating a more sturdy assembly out of a practice of building known as mortise and tenon construction.

Greeks and Romans both had their hands in the design and development of the chaise lounge as well.  Both of these cultures used this style of furniture  as the perfect piece of furniture for enjoying food and social gatherings.  Although the 8th century Greeks showed their gods and goddesses lounging on daybeds which they referred to as “kline’s” or symposium, these particular daybeds would commonly be used to promote good digestion during eating.  Because of their role in aiding digestion, particular rituals of how to eat and lounge during a meal were common using chaise lounges.

The same practices were commonly shown in the Roman’s lives as well.  What differed from the Roman and Greeks was the construction of the Roman chaise lounges.  The Roman daybed would often be constructed beginning with a decorative frame which was made out of wood or caste bronze.  Since the Romans did not practice upholstery, they made their furniture comfortable by using pillows.

Greek Styled Chaise Lounge

Another culture that  was inspirational in the development of the daybed was the French. The French were very instrumental in the development of the currently styled chaises.  Through research of the daybed style of sofa, I found that there are over half a dozen different French implemented styles of the chaise lounge.  If you were to study the history of the French chaise it seems that it gradually became a study in ergonomics.  Rooms were built around the chaise lounges to help curing symptoms of female hysteria. It was a tool used to help females relax and catch them when fainting from their corsets being too tight. As you can see the chaise lounge has been around for centuries. From the very first civilizations to modern day civilization, chaise lounges have continued to be popular with consumers.

Tufted Fainting Sofa

Throughout the years the chaise lounge has evolved into a piece of furniture that can be made in many different styles.  From fainting sofas to sun loungers and anything in between, this is a piece of furniture that promotes relaxation and togetherness.  Here at Fabrics and Frames Furniture we  can build, re-build, or create any style of chaise you can think of. With our huge selection of designer fabrics, both for indoors or out, and our expertise in designing and constructing high quality custom hardwood frames with spring systems included, we understand what it takes to build the furniture of your dreams. Whether you need a completely new custom piece, want to refurbish an existing one, or just need new cushions for your outdoor chaise, Fabrics and Frames is the place to shop.
