Do you want your home to be a shrine to your beautiful sense of style? Then make sure that every piece of furniture in every room; every table and chair is selected with care to go with the overall theme of the house. The curtains, the drapes, the wallpaper, pictures on the wall, fitted sofa slipcovers, side tables and every vase and knick-knack on the mantle should speak volumes about your innate sense for creating chic interiors.
You usually have several pieces of furniture – a beautiful sofa set, ottomans, loveseats, rocking chair, a futon and dining room furniture made of different materials like leather, cast iron, wicker, rattan and in varying colors. These diverse pieces need to be coordinated so they fit a general theme and yet retain their special characteristics. Replacing all of them or even a few could cost you ton of money. And you really don’t want to replace them as each has been selected with care over several years to serve different purposes. You love your old furniture.
