It’s no surprise there is a a massive shift occurring in the furniture business. The dull colors we saw in the late nineties and early two thousands are fast behind us as we awaken to a huge return to color.
So what are the top colors? If you’re in the market for any kind of new upholstery, here are the top trends in upholstery to keep an eye on.
By far the hottest color in design right now. Navy is always a safe bet as a strong neutral, not to mention a great infusion for something other than safe beige. Interestingly enough, us designers have been doing navy for close to a decade. In fact, I recall two projects I did in 2010 that were both navy and pink. I carried that same theme into a townhouse in 2012 for a single gal painting her entire ceiling in navy. It took a bit of time to catch on but it’s here to stay. The design trade will likely move on because we never want to be boring, but don’t worry, navy is just growing legs in the consumer market.
I love teal. Like navy, the color teal acts as a neutral in my world and works with everything. Plus, it makes everything look better. Combined with just about any color, from red, to blue, pink to yellow or even orange, this color is like the gal who never met a friend she didn’t like.
Hands down one of the most healing colors you can have in a home, so it’s no surprise that this color is springing up everywhere. What started out as a small pop is now taking center stage in upholstery. Sofas, chairs, ottomans and the like are all green with envy.
This lovely blush has always been in the background and for good reason. I include this invigorating color into every interior I do. Pink is another healing color to have in a home to help keep you calm. Plus, it’s often feared making it an unexpected pop! But if you’re in the market for upholstery this is a great hue to experiment with on an accent piece or a chair.
And I am doing a similar look for a new laundry room.
So where is the trend headed? Well, I wouldn’t be surprised to see blue transition into purple, and the pinks transitioning into reds. Yet again, with a trained eye these can act beautifully as a neutral and blend with just about any combination! And by the time these colors cycle back around, it will have been about twenty years since we’ve used them, making them perfect to reintroduce as a fresh option!
Personally I can’t wait to see a little more red. It’s another favorite of mine and being that it’s one of the most auspicious colors in Feng Shui, it will be a resurgence I will gladly welcome back in! Need a piece right away?

There’s an old joke where a man says, “I really want to go to medical school, but it takes at least seven years–and I’ll be 50 in seven years!” A wise friend replies, “And how old will you be in seven years if you don’t go?”
If you’re not where you want to be in your career–or, for that matter, in your life–never let yourself believe change is impossible. Don’t allow your future to be limited by your age or your situation; stop being afraid of what might go wrong and start getting excited about what could go right.
Here are 4 ways you can begin right now to steer yourself toward a more fulfilled and happy life:
1. Address the choices you’ve made in the past and change the choices you’ll make in the future.
Life is made up of choices–some we regret, some we’re proud of, some that will hurt us. Everything in your career and your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want different results, start making different choices.
2. Speak up with honesty and stop holding back what you think.
People may believe that honesty won’t win you many friends–but even if that were true, the friends you make with honesty will be the right ones. Honesty is the cornerstone of all success, without which confidence and the ability to perform cannot exist.
3. Forgo being a perfectionist. Perfect doesn’t exist.
Once you realize perfect doesn’t exist, you can ease up on yourself. There’s no harm in being wrong or making mistakes, as long as you’re willing to make corrections. Just be yourself, flaws and all, and let people see the real you. Each of us is an imperfect human being, aware that we can’t push away our failures and our flaws.
4. Acknowledge your losses and move on to your success.
Remember, winners aren’t people who never fail but people who never quit. It’s important to never let success get to your head or failure to your heart. The secret to getting ahead is to acknowledge your failures and have the wisdom to apply them to new opportunities.

Pink is one of those colors that’s difficult to work with. It got a reputation for being too girly, associated with fairy tales and princesses but, in fact, it’s a lot more versatile than that. There are many different shades of pink and they each transmit a certain look and feeling. So, when you think about it, a pink sofa in the living room is not such a bad idea. It can actually be an unexpected and quirky feature that will tie everything together in a unique way.
I really like how fresh this pink sofa looks here, surrounded by warm, neutral colors and complemented by those diverse accent pillows. A perfect example showing how sometimes it’s worth being bold.
Too much pink is usually disturbing. A much better alternative is to have a single pink element in the room such as this velvet sofa. Then it becomes a focal point for the room and stands out without making it seem like you’re trying too hard.
In an eclectic and colorful living room, a pink sofa can fit perfectly without looking out of place. Throw in some abstract artwork, some patterned accent pillows and a striped area rug and feel free to improvise.
Even a light and feminine shade of pink can look good in a living room defined by dark wood, neutral colors, exposed bricks and subtle industrial touches. In fact, the pink sofa balances out all the other elements.
But, as we’ve already mentioned, there are numerous different shades of pink to take into consideration. Some are actually closer to neutrals than to other vibrant colors. Take this sofa for example. It may be pink but it’s not exactly super bold or dramatic.
You can coordinate the sofa with other elements in the room so it doesn’t look out of place. For example, you can have matching artwork, an area rug, a lampshade, etc. Keep the rest of the elements neutrals however.
Some shades of pink are so beautiful you can’t take your eyes off them. This mesmerizing sofa works perfectly in combination with the black and white polka dot rug. What a successful combo!
Don’t always expect a pink sofa to be the center of attention in the living room. It’s possible for the sofa to be a lot less striking than other accent details featuring colors that are a lot ore vibrant.
Similarly, this pale shade of pink is outshone by the vibrant green accents. It does look beautiful in this setting, especially because of the brown accents and all the natural colors.
On the other hand, when a bold color is combined with other equally vibrant shades it doesn’t stand out that much and instead shares its importance with all the other elements. This is a really beautiful example.
In a living room décor that’s so harmoniously composed, a more vibrant shade of pink would have looked less beautiful than this light tone. It’s also a matter of texture. Everything seems to be in perfect sync, including the fabric sofa, the area rug, the lampshades and the rest of the furniture and colors.
By comparison, the much deeper and darker shade of pink is a welcomed focal point in this case, considering the whitewashed brick walls, the flooring and everything else that contributes to a casual and eclectic look.
Although the rug seems to be the main attraction in this living room, the sofa and ottomans don’t lack flair either. In fact, the color alone is enough to make them stand out. In this eclectic setting, all these elements fit naturally.
This is a similar situation where there are many other colorful and eye-catching elements in the room besides the pink sofa. The transparent lucite coffee table is an interesting feature.
If you opt for two sofas instead of just one, the color you choose for them should be less striking than in the case of a single accent piece.
Another valid option is to combine two distinct and equally vibrant colors like pink and purple in this case. The wooden flooring and the black coffee table and the perfect elements to establish a balance here.
If you want pink to be a delicate, feminine color in your home, then emphasize these details through shape, texture and other elements. This curved sectional combined with the round table and white curtains is a good example to follow.
This is a tasteful color combination enhanced by the fact that texture also plays an important role in the overall décor. The velvety sofa, the fireplace surround and, of course, the flooring are all elements contributing to this result.
Coordinate the sofa with the curtains to obtain a cohesive design. This would turn both elements into focal points if they feature the same vibrant color such as in this case. By comparison, all the other colors will blend in.
There are other ways to integrate a brightly-colored sofa into a living room. For example, it can coordinate with the area rug and even with a few accents in the kitchen if it’s an open floor plan.
Similarly, the sofa can match the color of the kitchen backsplash in order to create a visual connection between the two areas that share the same floor plan.
But what if the pink you’ve chosen for the sofa is not the only bold color in the room? Actually, two strong colors can be put together as long a they don’t clash. Blue seems to be a good choice in this case.
This is a similar case but the shades are a bit different and less vibrant. All the walls and the ceiling were painted blue and this changes the dynamic of the space a little bit.
The blue and pink combination is beautiful and one of these two colors can be stronger than the other. Even, the harmony is maintained. The aqua accents also bring in the ocean and the clear sky.
But let’s keep in mind that a sofa can also be put in other spaces apart from the living room. For example, a small sofa can be a lovely accent piece for a bedroom in which case a splash of color is a welcomed detail.
Do you feel that night time has become a little mundane?
And maybe your bed time gets a little cold?
Not sure, how come the feeling of warmth seems to be lesser now?
Then it is time for you to refresh how your headboard look. Because, the staleness of the headboard may have been accumulation of past feelings that can be change out as quickly as you dump your headboard for a new refresh one!
You will feel better almost immediately as you take action to improve your life. And one of the best way to start is where you spend so much time in, in bed… with your headboard.
KEY ATTRIBUTES: An easy-to-spot accent chair thanks to its signature winged sides and typically tall back. The generous size of a wingback makes it an ideal counterpart to a large sofa, since it can give the room a sense of balance in scale.
FREQUENTLY SPOTTED: Perched next to a fireplace. Protecting the inhabitant from drafts and the heat from a roaring fire was the original purpose of the chair’s side wings, and some things, like winter, never change.
OUR FAVORITE UNEXPECTED USE: As end chairs at the head and foot of a dining table. There’s something undeniably thronelike about the stately shaped of wingback chairs, and as dining chairs they give meals added gravitas.
MOST LIKELY TO: Stay put in its designated spot. The size and heft of most wingback chairs means they’re not the easiest to move when there’s a need for extra seating during a party.
Contact www.centrepiece.com.sg or email: info(at)centrepiece.com.sg to ask us how you can custom made a prefect fit wingchair for your home. As it is Made in Singapore, you can be assured of its quality! Always sturdy, reliable and in top quality!
Incorporating well-chosen art into an office design helps express the personality, values and culture of your company. But a range of studies into the role and value of art in the workplace have found a surprising array of additional business benefits.
A 2014 study by Harvard University highlighted art’s ability to encourage social interactions and catalyse personal relationships, improve the working environment and even facilitate learning.
The study also revealed that the use of art in a workplace helps employees feel more connected with their organisations, particularly if it the art is changed on a regular basis. The study found that when artwork was changed regularly, employees felt they could better relate to their company’s strategic goals of their organisation and could increase their sense of having an impact on those goals.
Meabwhile, a study conducted by Exeter University highlighted the postive effects of art on productivity. When office space was enriched with art and plants, 15% of participants showed higher levels of productivity than in a more basic space. Interestingly, when employees were given the same art and plants but allowed to choose where they were place, producivity levels rose for 30% of participants.
These positive effects were also reflected in a study carried out by the British Council for Offices. The survey results showed that 87% of respondents said that art is more relevant in the workplace today than ever before.
Is the wall above your couch looking naked? If so, you can try anything from a statement piece to a grouping of sketches to complete your space. The possibilities are endless – but they don’t have to be overwhelming! Use these tasteful styles and hanging options as inspiration to transform your living room.
Complement your sleek modern grey scale with a bold black and white instead of a textured neutral. This sophisticated contrast never gets old. Placing the piece across from a window (like the piece above by Thomas Hammer) lets the vibrant city bring in light and color while the room stays crisp and clean.
2. Light, Airy Nature Scene

Need a break from the concrete jungle outside? Bring some fresh air into your living room with a nature scene. The best part: you can have lush forests with no mosquitos and sandy beaches without the humidity. Need inspiration? Oregon-based Sugarlift artist Kati Dimoff (whose work is pictured above) can help you bring that chill west coast vibe into your home.
3. Color Conscious Pairing

When adding artwork to your space, playing around with colors is always encouraged—just make sure to avoid channeling your inner matchy-matchy Stepford wife. Instead, use art to emphasize shades and textures that highlight deeper tones in your room. Here, the blue side tables, pillow, and book match the painting’s color pallet, but introduce new shades, shapes, and complimentary colors.

Don’t let the bougie art lingo scare you away – a diptych is just a piece of art with two panels. Here, Brooklynite Lizzie Gill’s modern digital collage artworks are perfect for a room with mixed colors and patterns. The two pieces start a conversation with each other. Get ready for when you take them home and the rest of the room joins in!
5. Subtle, Textured Neutral

What if your wall is naked but your furniture is amazing?Don’t think your sofa and your painting need to fight it out for attention. A textured neutral will draw your attention, soften your space, and bring in a nice glow that will compliment your interior decor – not offend it!
6. Bold, Abstract Statement Piece

Something bold and painterly above the sofa adds energy to a room. In this piece, the colorfuland unpredictable lines radiate throughout the room. Pro tip: too big is always better than too small. Because this piece is wider than the couch, the bold design and large frame really demonstrate how a statement piece can elevate your living room to a new level.
7. Eye Catcher

A stimulating layered piece will have you completely absorbed. You won’t just be trying to unravel the artist’s process, you’ll be following the washes of color in the piece and noticing how the green background really brings out your hubby’s eyes while he complains about the office.
8. Gallery Wall

If a single large piece feels too serious, a gallery wall is the perfect, playful alternative. Because gallery walls feature multiple artworks hung together, they can be fun, creative, and great for those of us with commitment issues. Show off your love for the phases of the moon next to a small work by both your favorite fine artists and the best painters in the world – your kids! If you’re interested in keeping it cohesive, try matching frames (like above) or use similar colors and forms in the pieces themselves. The similarities will draw your eye throughout the collection.
9. Optical Illusion

An optical illusion piece not only catches your attention, but keeps your eye as the piece seems to undulate and evolve in front of you! Artists like Bridget Riley, M. C. Escher, and Karan Singh (whose work is pictured above) keep your clean, bright, sophisticate style intact and your mind engaged.
10. Vertical Piece

This vertical piece brings character to your room. Here, the figure catches your eye in the center of the piece and the verticality directs your gaze down to the couch. This not only intensifies the relationship between your art and furniture, but also makes your space feel larger. Center a vertical piece above a love seat or L-shaped couch to give the illusion that the only thing that fits up the stairs of your charming walk-up is at least three inches longer than it measures. Capitalize on tall ceilings, embrace those perpendicular lines, and go for it.
