Creating a Statement with Bold Furniture


Are you brave enough to buy bold furniture and make good use of it in your home? Some people love it but others are nervous of using it. It’s true you have to know how to make the most of this type of furniture, but if you get it right you’ll create a look and feel that is hard to beat.

If you’re in need of any tips, keep reading. You could be closer to transforming your home than you might think.

Would you opt for bold styles or colours?

There are different ways of being bold with your furniture. Some people like contemporary sofas for example, but prefer them upholstered in wild and wacky fabrics. Alternatively there are many contemporary leather sofas that have traditional colour leather but are made in an eye catching design.

It can be tricky to make the right kind of bold impression. Too much and the room can look confused and overwhelming. However, just the right amount in the right way and you can achieve the best possible look.

What are you trying to achieve?

This is always the best question to begin with, for obvious reasons. For example you may be looking for a focal point in a particular room. Sofas are an obvious choice in the living room, while a dining table would be ideal in the dining room, since it is the biggest item of furniture in there.

Always think about whether you want the style to be bold or the colours, or both. This will lead you towards the best option and solution for your needs.

Applying the same thinking to your business as well as your home

It’s worth remembering that bold furniture doesn’t just belong at home. It can make a big difference to business premises too. If you own your own business you have to consider how it appears to your clients. Are you making the right first impression?

For example if you want to ensure your business looks modern and forward thinking, contemporary leather sofas are a good way to welcome your clients in. Bold prints and other bold pieces of furniture can also help to convey the right image. If you want to make a statement about your business, make sure you make the right one!

Get ideas online and from magazines

The good news is you don’t have to go it alone when you’re trying to create that bold look you’re after. By looking for ideas and inspiration in magazines and on the internet you can come up with solutions for your own space. You can identify the kind of boldness you’d like the most in your home or business premises. You’ll also know how bold to be and when to pull back from overdoing it.

So whatever you have in mind – whether you want to make use of bold colours or patterns, or opt for bold shapes and designs instead – you’ll soon be able to achieve just the look you want.
