Victorian Collection

This week at HomesDirect365 we have a fully stocked Victorian collection due to the increasing popular demand. Ever since we had the furniture photographed in a much higher resolution allowing the finer details of the subtle ivory paint finish and the carvings to fully come to life, the orders have been increasing ten fold. With this we wanted to meet demand, and make you all aware that the Victorian collection is ready and waiting to ship out and give your bedroom that elegant makeover.

In the Victorian era there wasn’t one dominant style of furniture, but instead a mixture of Gothic, Rococo, Tudor and many other styles. As you can see with the Victorian Collection it combines beautiful regal and floral design with a slight hint of modern contemporary. Utilising this Victorian idea to fuse and combine styles into a new and interesting piece is abundant and helps to make the Victorian Collection extremely popular.

Every aspect is hand carved with great skill from a combination of Fir Pine and composite woods, and finished in a distressed ivory paint. The sentiments evoked with the individual pieces and as a whole as part of the full bedroom set are of romance and elegance, greatly uplifting to your spirit each day. It’s these reasons the Victorian Collection is the favourite of many, including the #1 favourite collection of many of our staff!

Stunning Mirrored Furniture at HomesDirect365

Mirrored Furniture

With our new subscribers increasing each week here at HomesDirect365 we wanted to take some time to familiarise our newer customers with some of the original pillars that make up our matching range foundation. We’ve focused a lot these past weeks on the fantastic new additions we’ve made to the website, so this week we shall revisit one of the most popular ranges we have available; mirrored furniture.

Venice would be one of the first locations where successfully experimenting with mirrored furniture pieces would take place, so much so that to this day Venetian furniture is still one of the most popular and it is this style which we incorporate into our own pieces. Their creativity and ingenuity would produce fantastic pieces encompassing floral etching and unique patterns all heavily influenced by the art-deco movement. Venice at this time became the Mecca of mirrored furniture but gradually over the following centuries many craftsmen left, taking their ideas with them to France and England and the rest of Europe.

The impact of these first designs and experimenting with glass in furniture has lasted centuries, and this durability and longevity in popularity is the key to what still makes it one of our most sought after ranges. Be sure to treat yourself to at least taking a closer look at some mirrored furniture, even one piece is enough to transform a room creating illusion of more space and elegance.
