Create the Perfect Impression with the Right Decor

Create the Perfect Impression with the Right Decor
  • Opening Intro -

    When it comes to putting together an impressive-looking home or business environment, no aspect is more important than the furnishings you choose.

    By selecting furniture pieces that are designed to impress, you can transform even the plainest room into a space that reflects taste, sophistication and discernment.


Here are some tips that will help you create your own impressive environment.

Look for Quality

If you’ve ever come face-to-face with a Louis XVI reproduction table only to realize upon closer inspection that the ornate carving is actually a molded piece of plastic glued onto a pressedboard base, you know that fancy doesn’t necessarily mean impressive. Similarly, if you’ve ever sat in an Eames chair or examined a Frank Lloyd Wright end table, you know that simplicity can be very impressive when quality design, materials and workmanship are combined. Look beneath the embellishments for solid wood, high-quality veneers, upholstery patterns that line up perfectly, high-density cushions and sturdy spring foundations. Avoid nailed or stapled frames or legs, faux finishes, cushions that are only patterned on one side and pieces that rock or tip easily.

Seminars and Events

Stores that offer high-quality furniture often provide an array of design services to customers as part of their business model. These sometimes feature guest experts and may include seminars or classes on everything from interior design to understanding furniture styles. Take advantage of these opportunities to learn more about the art and science of furnishing and decorating your home or business.

In-Home Design

It doesn’t take a professional interior designer to realize that in-home design services can go a long way towards helping you achieve that little extra something that separates a really impressive room from a room that is merely pleasant. Who wouldn’t want a design professional to personally assess their style and space and then help them create a personalized room layout, assist in choosing colors, fabrics, furnishings and even recommend accessories for a one-of-a-kind finished space? What you may not realize, however, is that many furniture stores offer design assistance in your home at no cost.


Some lines allow you to choose between a selection of colors, patterns, materials, finishes, styles and accessories at the time you purchase your furnishings and accessories. While you may have to wait a little longer for delivery than if you had chosen the standard options, customizing your furnishings is a great way to put your signature stamp on your finished room without the considerable expense associated with fully custom pieces.

The furnishings and accessories you choose will ultimately make a strong statement to your guests or clients about your taste, your level of refinement and even your educational and socioeconomic status. Whether you are furnishing your first home or office or your fifteenth, take advantage of these tips and services to craft the impression you want to make.
