Decorating with Shabby Chic Furniture

Why should you use Shabby Chic as your theme?

Homes Direct 365`s staff have a lot of our own furniture at home, having it available at the office makes for some very well informed furniture selections for home. We love the look and design of our stock, being partly biased its so unique it just stands out.

The design elements of shabby chic speak volumes in terms of character, style and design. The words shabby chic couture have been said in tandem and I think it adds more to the term. When someone says couture I immediately associate the word with high tea and fancy dresses and style lots of style, so using shabby chic couture as a phrase resonates with me.

I like to think that the history of the furniture goes back a long way, each item has its own story and some are shown in the patterns and shown where parts are worn away. Even if the furniture is a reasonably new piece it still presents as if it has been in use for many years with the rustic appearance and mismatched fit with the other designs.

We have had customers come to the store and instantly fall in love with the designs, they associate the furniture with a time and place. I can see why when you look at some of the designs you can really be transported back to a holiday destination in Paris or the time you stayed at the Monte Carlo. It does happen people come and view the furniture and you can see them being taken back to a moment when they were somewhere special and the design has inspired that memory so they buy it for the associated memory.

History rich natural textures cover the materials used to create the furniture. associating the piece with a time and place and not with an industrial collection of furniture with fancy paint designs.

Using shabby chic for your design interior and exterior you can assemble any collection style you associate with, the gift of shabby chic is it is about your feelings and how you interpret the design. Feeling like you want to travel create a room inspired by the ambience of a Scottish cottage or an Belgian bordeaux. Allow yourself some time to visualise your surroundings and reflect on uplifting surroundings.
