5 Furniture Items you can have for a ChangeBy Smitha Jose
Furniture Tweet 0 Comment(s)
A lot of thinking goes in while selecting a piece of furniture. It has to look good,feel good and stay good. Sometimes ,we incline more to the ' look' coefficient that we end up buying things which might not prove to be comfortable. And at times, it happens the other way round.
Since this keep happening, why not try the untried and get a new experience instead of going for the same style.
1. Bean bag
We all might have wondered why a bean bag is called so. Shape could never be the reason since it will be the last one to resemble a bean. It will be surprising to many of us to know that its because of the material stuffed inside that it got the name-Bean bag. Yes, dried bean, rice and other natural fillers were used to fill the bag initially!! However, now they are filled with synthetic fillers that are considered beneficial to health.
Leaving aside the health benefits,these are affordable ergonomic furniture. The super soft filling inside provides a comfortable experience, relaxing your strained muscles.Plus, these come in a wide range of colours and designs that there will hardly be any chance that you don't find one that suits your taste.
Ottoman is another not so commonly used piece of furniture. It is an upholstered seat without a head and back. This is so stuffed/cushioned that hardly any bone i.e, the wood is visible. The uses of an Ottoman are plenty. With the style and the look it flaunts, these are perfect seating arrangement for any room in the house-be it for the living room. Bedroom or the dining room. Ottoman coffee tables are also a perfect pick as teapoy to couple with the couches. Hollow from inside, these can also be excellent storage space too.
Try replacing those boring sofas with Ottoman seats for a change. The look and feel your room gets will leave you in awe.
Benches remind us of the good old days of our childhood-the carefree and funfilled phase of our life. Oh, how we miss those days! Why not bring such little nostalgic elements -right to our home.
Benches, at home ? Yes, you heard it right -Benches for the dining table. The usual boring look of a formal dining arrangement can be turned into a more playful one. Either have a complete bench seating arrangement or mix it with the usual table -chair combination - this dining space is going to bring back the memories of those happy days.
There can't be a better option to relax than swaying on the hammock, reading your favourite novel or listening to the melodies of the yesteryears. This, some might feel, is a scene one can see at the sea shore or the lawn in front of your house. True as it is, these hammocks can also be brought into the room. Creating an ambience in your bedroom like the one outdoor won't be a tough job, you see! To make it more realistic, make space for some potted plants and there you go! The feel of the sea shore right in your den.
5. Chaise longue
What about a chaise longue ? Well, the name might sound unfamiliar to many of us. This is nothing but a blend of chair and a daybed which is believed to be originated in Egypt. It is basically an upholstered sofa which is long enough to support your legs. It usually has arm rest at one end, on one side. This makes it a perfect solution for many of us who love to have a quick nap after that sumptuous lunch.
Now if you are wondering whether a Chaise Longue would be an ideal pick for the living room, given that it is essentially a daybed too, a look at the wide ranging styles and design is all you need. The next thing you will probably be doing is to find a place to move you current couch to welcome this awesome newcomer.
The silver chaise longue shown below will be a perfect pick for the one would love to give a touch of royalty to their modern home.
