That would surely relive stress and will help you recharge from tiring tasks of the day. So, why don’t you get a lounge chair or a daybed perhaps?

Fabrics that you should use for your outdoor furniture.

If you have bought your outdoor rattan or furniture at a reputable store, you will likely know about Sunbrella fabrics. There have been known to be fabrics for the Home with
Unparalleled Performance.

Fabrics from the Sunbrella Elements Collection

Design matters. Without great design, the spaces in our homes lack meaning and inspiration. The perfect combination of color, texture and pattern not only adds beauty, but has the power to invigorate and rejuvenate. Living with great design and creating a beautiful custom interior are what Sunbrella® fabrics are all about. Fabulous collections with unparalleled performance that are both stunning enough for a formal piece of furniture and durable enough for the sofa you sink into at the end of the day.

Sunbrella Dimension, an extraordinary plains and unique jacquards

UV and Fade

Resistant

Traditional dyeing processes only leave color on the surface of fiber, so they easily fade. Sunbrella fibers are saturated to the core with highly UV-stable pigments, making Sunbrella fabrics resistant to fading and the degrading effects of sunlight.

Mold and Mildew
Resistant

All Sunbrella fabrics are engineered to resist mold and mildew. Should exposure to dirt and debris cause mold and mildew to occur, all Sunbrella fabrics can be easily and safely cleaned with bleach.

Bleach
Cleanable

Because color goes to the core of Sunbrella fibers, Sunbrella fabrics can be cleaned with solvents such as bleach without losing color.

Why rattan is trendy again in the world of interior design

Rattan’s reputation as a dated material is increasingly being shed by creatives weaving it into more contemporary aesthetics.Related image

The unorthodox choice of material, contrary to the sound-absorbing ceiling tiles favoured by other dining outlets, was one that Elita Ong, lead interior designer of and partner at local design studio Foreign Policy, was keen to explore. “We did not want to apply a typical acoustic treatment to the ceiling and started sourcing for materials that were porous, and rattan fit the bill – not just functionally, but also in elevating the tropical textures of the space,” says Ong.Image result for rattan daybed

Over at the newly renovated Tea Lounge at Regent Singapore, custom-made banquette seats combine woven rattan with stained timber frames, velvet fabric upholstery, and plush leather cushions. Says Matthew Shang, designer and principal of Hassell, the studio behind the design: “Rattan is a good material to use to bring in the textures of the outdoors, while still achieving a level of elegance and sophistication.” Shang values the material for its inherent flexibility, a quality which lends itself well to the banquette’s curved silhouette.

For Vince, director of Centrepiece Furnishing, the resurgence of rattan in the contemporary design lexicon runs in tandem with the trend towards more natural and sustainable materials. Indeed, the palm’s ease of harvest and ability to regenerate more quickly than other tropical trees, makes it an attractive resource.

Over at this year’s Milan Design Week – which has held court since 1961 – British designer Timothy Oulton showcased fabric sofas made using 100 per cent natural vegetable dyes, while Kartell’s new Philippe Starck-designed furniture collection unveiled a patented method of casting wood into a mould that allowed for the rigid material to achieve sinuous curves.

While Shang agrees that rattan has an edge as a sustainable material, he highlights that exposure to the sun will cause it to split and tear. “(Rattan furniture) should be designed to avoid continued stress,” he says, suggesting that the finishing applied on rattan, as well as other materials it is built with, all go towards prolonging its lifespan.

Is my furniture worth upholstering?

maxresdefault

Answer: If you feel that your furniture is well made, it fits in the area where you want to use it, and (except for the fabric) you like it, then it certainly is worth reupholstering! The foam cushions may need to be replaced, and new foam makes a world of difference, too. Your furniture will look and feel brand new after we reupholster it.

We will honestly tell you if a piece is not worth reupholstering because we do not want to be responsible for any job in which the final result is not of the highest quality. Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction!

reupholster-couch-cost-how-to-reupholster-a-sofa-how-much-does-a-couch-cost-cost-to-reupholster-sofa-average-reupholstering-couch-cos

Should I buy new furniture or have my existing furniture reupholstered?

Answer: The furniture that you already own may well be of better construction than a lot of the new furniture on the market today. By reupholstering your existing furniture, you can keep the investment you made as we bring new life

Plus, with thousands of different fabrics to choose from, you can select the perfect style and color if you choose to reupholster.

If I already have my own fabric, can you still reupholster my furniture?

Answer: Yes. However, certain fabrics may not sit well with sofa as it is not as durable. In addition, you will have to check with the upholster how many yards of fabrics you need for your furniture. Pattern fabrics may require more.

How do I go about my furniture being picked up/delivered?

We offer pickup and delivery services but it is for local only. Despite this, sometimes we can get very busy and our customers have offered to pick up their items if it is not too heavy for them.

I don’t have my own fabric. Do you have a selection of fabric that I may choose from?

Should You Reupholster Your Sofa or Buy a New One?

Many people consider reupholstering in hopes of saving some money to get that perfect farmhouse look. But, how much money will you actually save if you reupholster your sofa? Chances are, not very much. Here are the pros and cons of buying new versus reupholstering the old.

A vintage sofa like this is worth reupholstering. 

Reupholstering vs. Buying New

Upholstering as a trade is a labor-intensive job that isn’t so popular with younger people. In other words, the master craftsmen have retired and haven’t been replaced at a high rate. This has caused prices and lead times to go up, while the money people are willing to pay for the service goes down because of competition with furniture made in China.

It’s expensive to reupholster a piece, once you figure in the price of labor and the price of the fabric. That said, there are some times when reupholstering a piece gives you something unique that you wouldn’t have been able to buy new.

A new slipcover will update the look of your sofa. 

Reasons to Reupholster Your Sofa

  1. It’s vintage. Often vintage furniture is better-made and has a nicer shape than something new. These pieces can often be picked up inexpensively at estate sales and thrift stores. If you love the uniqueness of the piece and want to update it, consider reupholstering it. The same goes if you inherited a vintage piece and want to update it for your farmhouse lifestyle.
  2. It was expensive, it is high-quality, and you love the lines and shape of it. If you invested in a quality sofa and don’t love the fabric on it now, it may be worth it to reupholster it rather than buying new. Or, it’s so comfy that you don’t want to get rid of it no matter how much it costs to reupholster. It’s not always easy to find the sofa of your dreams. If you already have it but the fabric is worn, have it reupholstered.
  3. You want a custom-designer look that has to be specially upholstered anyway. It may still be the same price to buy new as to upholster your old one, though.
  4. You have the time and patience to DIY the upholstery or make a slipcover that will refresh your current sofa. Depending on how expensive your fabric is, it may be the least expensive option. There are tutorials online for doing this yourself using inexpensive drop cloths, if you have the time, patience and skills to do it.

For most people, buying new is the way to go. This gives you a new design opportunity to update your space for your dream farmhouse. Since you’re investing in your home, whether you reupholster or buy new, you may get the biggest bang for your buck by choosing a great sofa look.

Top Reasons To Buy a New Sofa

  1. You would like to try a new sofa look or shape. Maybe you want to change your look by trying a tufted sofa for a tailored farmhouse look to replace your faux-leather overstuffed sectional with automatic footrests.
  2. Your old sofa was cheap to begin with. This sofa may not have good enough “bones” to warrant investing the money it would cost in labor and materials to reupholster it.
  3. You are on a small budget and want something cheap, quick, and temporary. Made-in-China furniture at discount stores gives you an updated look on a small budget, though don’t expect it to last a long time.
  4. You want nicer quality than you had before. A sofa is an investment in your comfort and style for a long time. Maybe it’s time to get a nice one that will be worth reupholstering the next time around.

Wondering what type of upholstery?

Wondering what type of upholstery you should pick for your furniture? Well, it’s a big decision because the fabric on your sofa, chair, or ottoman define the character of your rooms. Besides, different materials have their own set of benefits and disadvantages which will impact you based on your needs and the traits of your home.

To help you understand the rules of reliable upholstery. Following these pointers will allow you to save time, money, and the agony of owning revolting furniture.

Image result for upholstery sofa

Tip #1: Choosing the right color.

When choosing the color of your upholstery, you need to think of the mood you want to create. Upholstery fabric color can impact a room in many ways. Light colors on bulky furniture make a small place look spacious and dark colors can hide stains if you have kids or pets at home. Whatever you pick, try to keep it simple or look for in-season colors because trends change all the time.

Image result for upholstery sofa

Tip #2: Choosing the right combination.

If you’re looking for upholstery with patterns, you need to know if it will match your furniture at home. Large designs, usually suit bigger pieces, and smaller patterns look good on smaller furniture. Besides size, note the geometry of your furniture. Is it straight or rounded and plush? Does it have detailed carvings? Straight chairs look taller with strip upholstery, and round-edge couches are better at pulling off floral and tribal prints.

Image result for upholstery sofa

Tip #3: Choosing a quality product.

It’s not easy to redo your upholstery often, so make sure you pick quality fabric the lasts for years. If you have kids look for easy to clean and water-repellent materials like distressed leather and vinyl. For rooms that experience high traffic, use durable fabrics only. You could choose engineered fabric rather than natural fabric as it lasts longer. Ask for sample swatches to test the materials for yourself.

Image result for upholstery sofa

Tip #4: Choosing the right size for your custom pieces.

You need to have your furniture measured accurately to pick the right sized upholstery. However, when it comes to custom pieces, matching the right size is a concern for many, especially when using printed upholstery. For fabrics with patterns, make sure they are not cut at odd angles because this can ruin the symmetry of the designs.

Image result for upholstery sofa

Tip #5: Choosing the right upholsterer.

You do not want to go through the traumas of collecting a shabby mess from the upholsterer. To ensure you never have to, do a bit of research and shortlist a few professionals. See if you can find reviews about them online or from your friends and family. Custom upholstery and reupholstery require tremendous skill and experience to deliver satisfaction.

A Midnight Headboard – Singapore

A headboard can really transform the look of a bedroom. Beyond just an extension of the bed frame, a headboard can be a focal point in the room, adding interest, color, texture and even storage to an otherwise plain wall. Jazz up your existing headboard by adding design elements or skip the traditional headboard and use something unexpected in its place.

And today I am addicted to these midnight headboards.

Upholstered Headboards

Upholstered headboards are great because they add a touch of comfort to a room. They’re particularly great because they can be custom made to work in any bedroom. From the fabric used to the style of the headboard, the options for these custom headboards are just about endless.

Image result for soft headboards

Button Tufted– These are great when comfort and elegance are high priorities. Button tufting is always associated with glamour and sophistication and these can become great focal points in stylish bedrooms. Button tufting can be a complicated upholstery project so it’s better left being made by a professional.

Hope Buttoned Headboard

Quilted – Quilted headboards are still elegant, but they’re much easier to make. Any shape you desire can be cut out of a piece of plywood or particleboard, then you just glue upholstery foam to the board, cover it with cotton batting, and then stretch your chosen fabric over it, stapling it to the back of the board. The fabric doesn’t have to be quilted (it can be any fabric of your choosing), but a quilted fabric adds a bit more texture and visual interest.

Once these headboards are complete, simply bolt them to the bed frame. If the piece is particularly large you might want to secure it to the wall as well.

For a truly over-the-top look, you can also include a matching fabric valance above the bed and hang draperies to frame the top of the bed. This is a slightly more complicated job that should be done by a professional, but it’s guaranteed to make your bedroom unique.

Image result for soft headboards

Fabric Panels – Another simple custom headboard you can make on your own is one made out of fabric-covered panels. These look great in urban and contemporary rooms. Simply take square pieces of plywood or particleboard and like the quilted headboard, cover them in upholstery foam, cotton batting and fabric. Then attach them to the wall keeping them so close together that the edges touch. You can make this custom headboard in any size you desire. Keep it small or use enough panels to take it all the way up to the ceiling.

Great Ideas In Choosing A Headboard For Your Bed

Did you ever think about the impact headboards have on your bed? Wouldn’t you say that most beds would be dull and incomplete without it? There are numerous benefits of having a headboard, such as improving the overall look of your bedroom with nothing but their presence.

When choosing a headboard for your bed, think about your needs and preferences. Are you a romantic soul that would enjoy waking up in a bed with wrought iron headboards?

Are you a creative artist that would like to have a dominant headboard ‘climbing’ towards the ceiling? As simple as it sounds, your wishes and interests will determine how to choose a headboard for your bed.

The experience will be fun, but it is always better to be prepared for eventual challenges. That’s why we suggest you to check our guide to buying a headboard:

What does your bedroom need, or even better-what could it adopt without looking crowded? The first step is to calculate space and height, and the second is to consider architectural features that could be affected by your new headboard.

Obviously, the headboard has to be proportional to the room in general. For instance, spacious room with high and vaulted ceilings will look amazing with large anchors and massive wood headboards, while smaller spaces are much better with low-profile headboards seamlessly attached to the wall.

In case the bed is positioned against recessed windows, it could use an open metal headboard which would reflect the light and keep the room light and airy.

Choose the right material

Chic headboards are available in all sorts of materials, meaning that you can easily find one that matches the overall style of your bedroom, or your wooden, metal, leather, vinyl, rattan, or any similar furnishing and accessories. Still, matching headboards with furniture is not the main priority.

What should really come under the scope of your to dos is comfort and durability. You should pay special attention to these if you’re using your bed for reading or watching TV.

Wood is a classic choice for a headboard, especially if the headboard itself is carved. The wood can be both stained and painted. Another timeless choice is metal, either one fantastically ornate with twists and curls, or a plain iron/brass panel.

Recently, people are also choosing bamboo, wicker, and upholstery (upholstery is the best option in terms of comfort, regardless of whether it’s buttoned or tufted). A favorite choice is definitely an upholstered headboard with fabric-dressed buttons, disposed in equal intervals, with a supposed plaid appearance.

Follow the style

You’ve already worked to inspire romantic appearance in your bedroom, and you’ve probably invested a non-negligible amount to make it as light, airy, and colorful as you want it.

There is no need to leave those efforts aside: if you chose a refined and sophisticated bedroom, upholstered headboards are a perfect choice. On the other hand, bold and masculine lines look good with wood, reach leather, on any other sleigh headboard.

Its majesty: Functionality

Great-Ideas-In-Choosing-A-Headboard-For-Your-Bed4 Great Ideas In Choosing A Headboard For Your Bed

Headboards need to be beautiful, we agree with that. However, the main purpose of a headboard is to be functional. Everybody likes to sit in their beds, reading or checking their phones, and that makes the headboard a backrest more than anything else.

The more comfortable-the better! If the headboard is attached to the bed, it means that it is secure to lean on, and is at the same time much better than the cold walls or headboards that create unpleasant gaps that can ‘swallow’ your pillows.

Great-Ideas-In-Choosing-A-Headboard-For-Your-Bed13 Great Ideas In Choosing A Headboard For Your Bed

There are even headboards that come with special features, something like a shelf to leave your books or alarms on, or a top ledge that can accommodate your reading glasses. Sometimes, the headboard is so tall that it has a raised side post where one can hang dressing gowns and bathrobes.

The most advanced headboards are those with inbuilt lights and electric plugs where you can charge your phone comfortably.

Choose in accordance with your height

Great-Ideas-In-Choosing-A-Headboard-For-Your-Bed6 Great Ideas In Choosing A Headboard For Your Bed

This is of essential importance when using a bed whose headboard is connected to a canopy. Tall people obviously need higher headboards, while the one for your children should be lower. As we already emphasized, comfort is what matters the most.

The standard height of a headboard is 48 inches, including its legs. People with long torsos should consider Euro-size pillows and cushions on the bed, ideally taller than the headboard (55 inches at least).

In order to determine the right height of your headboard, think of the way you’re going to use it. Measure the distance between the floor and the mattress, and then the length of your own torso. Put the numbers together, and look for a headboard that is slightly taller (consider the legs in the overall length).

Employ your creativity

Great-Ideas-In-Choosing-A-Headboard-For-Your-Bed10 Great Ideas In Choosing A Headboard For Your Bed

You don’t have to make a traditional metal/wooden choice, or to follow the trend of upholstered headboards. You’re free to get creative, and to choose a unique headboard that everybody would admire. It can be a personal framed picture pushed behind the bed, an affixed flat decal, wall art, or even re-purposed wooden doors.

You can even ask your children to think of an original solution for their own beds. Whatever you choose, make sure it will attract attention, and make you feel more comfortable while resting in your bed.

Decide on the size

Great-Ideas-In-Choosing-A-Headboard-For-Your-Bed7 Great Ideas In Choosing A Headboard For Your Bed

The size of your headboard can have an incredible impact on the entire bedroom. Oversized headboards look dominant and powerful, and they often take a focal position in a sophisticated and modern bedroom.

Small ones, on the opposite, have a minimal appearance, but that doesn’t make them any less decisive for the personality of your bedroom.

Something that suits the room

Great-Ideas-In-Choosing-A-Headboard-For-Your-Bed8 Great Ideas In Choosing A Headboard For Your Bed

In order to make the decision simpler, consider the furniture you already have. With lots of upholstery around, you should probably go for a wooden headboard, or even taut leather.

In the opposite case, where furniture is the one made of wood, headboards should be ‘softer’ (linen, cotton, or any similar, durable fabric).

Attached and detached headboards

Great-Ideas-In-Choosing-A-Headboard-For-Your-Bed12 Great Ideas In Choosing A Headboard For Your Bed

The reason why you’re already on the hunt for a nice headboard is that your bed doesn’t have one, but in case you’re buying the bed itself, choose one that doesn’t have an attached headboard.

This means that you will be free to choose one that you like, filled in a particular way, or simply matching the colors of the wall. Needless to say, a detached headboard is a piece that you can change whenever you want, meaning that you will renew the looks of your room multiple times.

Do some shopping

Great-Ideas-In-Choosing-A-Headboard-For-Your-Bed9 Great Ideas In Choosing A Headboard For Your Bed

Before you visit local stores and markets, check what retailers are offering online. This is a good tactic to develop a scheme, or at least to get an idea of what to look for.

Going from store to store in order to compare is a terrible waste of time, especially if you consider that almost every retailer insists to reinforce his online presence nowadays. The same counts probably for your favorite retailer.

Conclusion

Great-Ideas-In-Choosing-A-Headboard-For-Your-Bed11 Great Ideas In Choosing A Headboard For Your Bed

The headboard in your bedroom is just as important as any other piece of furniture, and it deserves the same treatment, both in terms of style and functionality.

Consider these tips and use magazines to get inspired, or follow the overall décor you’ve applied back home. The size, the ceiling height, and the applied style are the main factors you should consider.

Headboards can change your bedroom!

Tufted Upholstered Headboard - Carla Aston, Designer

One of my favorite suggestions for clients wanting to redo their bedrooms, is to do an upholstered headboard or bed.

Many times people have a wood framed bed with matching or near matching nightstands, dressers, armoires, etc. When you go to a retail store, they make it easy to buy the “set”. However, an upholstered headboard or bed is really more comfortable and can really soften the look and make a bedroom seem custom designed and luxurious.

The headboard can be made higher, to make a statement and command the room, as the bed wall is typically the focal point of a bedroom. You can do an interesting shape, some tufting, a patterned fabric, etc., and dramatically change the look. You can just play with the style and do whatever you want.

I’m sharing a few clients’ bedrooms today, where we’ve done the upholstered bed and then I’ve got some great models for you to shop for your bedroom.

Reasons Why Rattan Furniture Is Eco Friendly

Everyone’s going green these days. We’re all starting to become more environmentally conscious, which is certainly a good thing, but it can sometimes be tough to find eco-friendly products for all areas of your life.

Finding eco-friendly furnishings, for example, can be a bit of a nightmare. However, rattan is actually one of the best options for those after environmentally-sound furniture.

If you don’t believe it, check out these reasons why rattan is eco-friendly:

rebecca-de-ravenel-home-los-angeles-domino-magazine-1

1) Rattan helps to preserve forests

Rattan only grows in between other trees in diverse forests throughout Africa, Asia and Australasia, meaning it helps to sustain forests throughout the world.

Because it’s such a sought-after material, forests are protected from logging for the specific use of growing rattan. While deforestation has slowed down considerably in the last few decades, we’re still losing around 13 million hectares of forests each year.

Rattan also grows in floodplains that would go unused otherwise, so it helps to encourage animal populations and sustain many more.

2) It provides people with sustainable income

Rattan is able to provide some of the poorest people in the world with an income that they can rely on. Those living in Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia, along with the many other poor countries in which it grows, are able to set up smallholdings and sell rattan to suppliers.

3)Rattan harvesting has a reduced impact on the environment

Rattan can be harvested relatively easily as it only requires the use of simple tools to cut the stems. It is certainly still a labour-intensive task though, meaning numerous people can be given work during the harvest season.

Can you think of any other reasons why rattan is eco-friendly?

This is why it is necessary to progress towards more sustainable production and processing practices.

A switch towards cleaner production

A key aspect of switching towards sustainable rattan involves adopting cleaner production techniques in the manufacture of rattan products.

This is because technologies and equipment for rattan processing are often outdated. Cleaner production helps to open up new market opportunities and to produce better quality products.

This can be achieved through optimized management, increased materials and energy efficiency, and with more effective equipment, among others. You can find out more about clean rattan production by downloading the file on the right-hand side.
