Are you looking to redesign your room, but don’t know where to start? You’ve come to the right place. It’s time for another Steinhafels #DecoratingSolutions Tip of the Week!
This week we look at how to combine high style and cozy comfort. Those may sound like two very different design strategies, but they don’t have to be!
This week’s design tip comes from Anne Hildreth, an interior designer the Steinhafels in Vernon Hills.
In a recent article in the Daily Herald, Anne explains, “Reclining furniture is very popular today but current recliners don’t look like the overstuffed, bucket seated ‘Bubba’ furniture of the past.” She adds, “Today’s recliners are often high-end pieces with tailored arms and backs that also happen to be designed to recline and are very comfortable. Many are custom-made so the homeowner can choose exactly the arm, seat depth, back height and footrest they want, as well as the fabric or leather they prefer.”
Another thing Anne is seeing is that people are showing more personality, and choosing eclectic looks. She says, “People are mixing fabric and leathers on chairs and sofas within the same room to keep in interesting. That sleek, matching, all leather look from the 1990’s is gone.”
In addition, Hildreth says cocktail tables are largely being replaced by cocktail ottomans… which don’t necessarily need to match the sofas and loveseats they accompany!
So go ahead and break some rules!! You can check out more of Anne’s article HERE.
