The other surface, coffee tables. These are surfaces that can have huge impact. You can play around with texture, colors, and accessories. For a more personal look, you can have look books with family pictures, frames and sentimental items out. For a more funky look, have magazines with lots of color, or put a pop of color underneath like an area rug. If you like more simple and fresh looks, do something simple like a floral arrangement with some perennials or tulips in a simple vase, add a few books or magazines for some reading material. There are so many ways to style a coffee table, simple to over the top. Just don’t forget about this surface, it has a lot of potential. Your guest will appreciate a few magazines out or a conversation piece like your family album.
When you find that one piece of furniture or accessory that you just can’t live without, you wonder how you might pair that piece in your home with existing pieces or maybe you want to find new pieces to go with it. I have shown here how you can pair pieces together for each type of style. You can do this by using similar textures, colors, and shapes to pair new items with old and vise versa. Come on in to our showroom and we can help you pair together your favorite pieces.
Let’s talk about mixing & matching chairs.
The black color unifies the eclectic collection of chair styles.
Office chairs in a residential setting: delightfully unexpected!
The blue wall color shows up in most of the chair seats, leaving tons of room to play with frame styles.
Mixing & matching chairs can accomplish so much in a space. Have fun with color, play with size and shape, juxtapose styles. Can’t afford six Eames chairs? Just buy one!
Interior stylists–names like Glen Proebstel and Lotta Agaton–are some of my favorite go-to’s for design inspiration. They accomplish both marketing and art in one fell swoop, selling the idea that messy covers are chic and chipping paint is glamorous. Maybe what I love the most is the way the stylists make their spaces look worn-in and realistic, while boldly implementing whimsical details (white balloons never looked so beautiful, am I right?)

With summer around the corner, I’ve been consumed with imagery of bedrooms that look freshly abandoned–covers untucked and windows uncovered. The repetitive white and cobalt blue color palette stands clean and simple next to highly textured surfaces. The combination exudes something like quiet, carefree confidence, don’t you think?

This spring, let an Eheart designer help you accomplish a fresh new look and feel for your bedroom.
March is here, and the long-standing tradition of “spring cleaning” will soon be upon us. A place for everything, and everything in its place, they say. But what about the little items that always seem to be without a proper home?
I’m currently working on a furniture project for a client who is begging for functional storage by her doors. Everyone can relate to an entryway cluttered with shoes, bicycle helmets, keys, pet leashes, books, packages to mail…. (should we go on?)
An entry console table is a nice option for the particularly tidy folk, but sometimes the space–and our lifestyles–call for a nice, big, accomdating chest. After purusing some of my favorite furniture makers, I thought I’d share my fabulous findings with you.
When I saw this new sofa from Caracole, I simply could not curve my enthusiasm. Contrasting nailheads and the soft pale ale wood finish nod to an industrial style; warm upholstery and a delicate frame reflect the Victorian era. The way in which the curvelinear form teams up with boxy seat cushions and pillows allows me to visualize the piece in both traditional and contemporary settings. Set on a plush area rug under a chandelier dripping with crystals? Absolutely. Resting on a polished concrete floor with a salvaged wood coffee table? Certainly.
“Curve Your Enthusiasm” by Caracole is 78.25″ wide, 41.75″ deep and 45.5″ high. Clear a space! We found something new for you to sit on.
Having looked at both modern and transitional chairs this week, do you find yourself pining for something a bit more traditional? If so, take a look at a couple of these options:
If your coffee table is about to make you scream due to its sheer lack of creativity, take a peek at a few of these “think outside the box” upgrades:
This piece, made by Lorts, is the perfect hybrid between a coffee table and an ottoman.
The driftwood finish is ultra-trendy right now. Pick up this beautiful steel topped Lexington piece and add it to your collection!
This sophisticated, streamlined Lexington piece would look great in a more contemporary interior.
This Sherrill Occasional coffee table has a couple of ottomans that tuck conveniently in the corners. Pull them out for extra seating in a pinch!
