Chichi Furniture’s Friday Feature – Wine and Dine it’s Harvest Time!

Hooray, it’s Friday and Its’ Harvest Festival time, so on the theme of harvest and gathering with friends and family and enjoying fine food and fine company, today’s inspiration is for beautiful French style dining sets, from rustic and shabby chic to simply glamorous. Sitting round a table with friends and family is the one true time people chat, share and laugh, conversation isn’t lost when sitting round a table. The dynamics of a ‘family’ returns. Here at Chichi we have tables large enough for those grand spaces and small enough for those cosy coffee and cake moments with nearest and dearest. Which would you choose? Happy Weekend Everyone :O)

Wednesday Wish List – Furniture With a ‘WOW’

Just like that striking diamond necklace can complete your look in style, so can a feature piece of furniture transform and complete a room.

Adding a key feature to a space can lift a design, whilst also fusing it together, adding dimension and style. Be it a bright colour that just catches your eye, amazing detailing, sharp contrasts or just a large beautifully shaped piece that owns the room, you can be creative and have fun with furniture.

We often design a room thinking firstly of functionality and making sure everything matches, but, throw in a feature chair that contrasts and the room takes on another dimension. You don’t want it to look awkward or completely out of place so ensure there is a link/key theme, either colour, style of pieces etc.

Below are some choice pieces from Chichi Furniture that would be fabulous features in any home!

Bold orange makes this piece stand out in a room, tie it in with other hints of gold throughout a scheme so it doesn't look out of place.

THINK PINK! a feast for the eyes, this chair will certainly stand out, it could be paired with similar elaborate French style pieces in gentler tones, or modern pieces that are also in vibrant pink.

Chichi Furniture’s Friday Favourites

Welcome to Friday, another week successfully done and today Chichi Furniture is embracing the dark. Sometimes when the weather turns and the winter is on the way, we quickly get the paint out, turn on lights and try to lighten and brighten our homes to hang onto the summer as long as we can. Well, it can be tiring fighting against the inevitable, so today we are taking a different slant and embracing the dark and all that is storm clouds and winter. One of the charms of the winter is actually cosying up, lighting fires and candles and shutting curtains. Choosing black furniture not only looks stylish and chic, but can create a very intimate and atmospheric ambience. Take a look at the below fabulous pieces from Chichi Furniture to create a similar vibe in your home.

Rough Luxe and French Furniture Flair

French Stye Furniture is just so utterly ideal for the rough luxe look. A beautifully shaped chair, upholstered in a sumptuous velvet, couldn’t stand out more than against a rough finished wall. Its a stunning contrast that just works, allowing each style to really shine.

It induces a warm, relaxed and stylish environment. I don’t know about you, but if i’ve just painted a wall a fresh crisp white and had the carpets cleaned, I would prefer it if people ‘floated’ around my home, as opposed to carrying food and drinks and leaning on walls (yes I’m am ever so slightly OCD!!) This is the beauty of the rough luxe look – it’s not meant to be perfect, it produces an amazing look without creating the need to be precious!!

The furniture does all the work. The large, sparkly chandeliers shower the rooms in light, whilst the mirrors bring the unfinished walls to life. All aspects of this look link together, ensuring that the room gels and doesn’t appear disjointed and a conflict of styles.

Below are some fabulous examples of furniture from Chichi which can help you achieve the look.

Tiffany Lights to add Autumnal Colour to your Home

I never bore of Autumn, the colours are always striking, the days are often clear and bright, with cooler mornings and evenings, encouraging us to cosy up in front of a fire. Adding autumnal colours to your home, brings some of that warmth and nature inspired beauty into your home and what better way to do it, than by adding a Tiffany Light from Chichi Furniture. Beautiful hand made lamps with stained glass in all the colours of autumn. All you need now is the red wine to match!

Friday’s Feature from Chichi Furniture

Turn your pad into a Palace by adding an exquisite chandelier.

Whether its in an entrance way, hung low over a dining table, or contrasting against a rough brick wall, adding a chandelier instantly adds a touch of glamour and style to a room. A stunning feature that will drawer you in and pull a scheme together.

‘Heavenly Headboards’ from Chichi Furniture

Beds are one of the biggest items of furniture we will buy and they pretty much fill the bedroom, so make sure your bed is a beautiful feature in your room and not just a necessary item of furniture plonked in the middle.

A bed with a statement headboard can look striking and instantly catch your eye. It is an easy way to add style and detail to a space without adding ‘more’ furniture, or, it can act as the key piece to furnish around.

Sometimes a room just needs a splash of colour to mix up a look, or some stylish detail to add layers to a more simplistic scheme. Adding an upholstered or heavily carved headboard with detailed pattern can look beautiful against a plain wall, equally a simple elegant headboard in a block colour can break up a patterned wall – both contrasting and adding dimension.

Below are some gorgeous examples of beds with headboards from Chichi Furniture;

Dreaming of Dressing Tables…

Unfortunately my bedroom barely has room to walk round the bed, let alone have a stunning dressing table, but I can wish.

Dressing tables are a girls dream, somewhere to store all our trinkets and treasures, from jewellery to make up and a perfect space to sit at leisure and prepare for the day, rather than balancing the makeup box in the bathroom, shared with  the whole family in the morning rush!!

Take a look at Chichi Furniture’s gorgeous dressing tables below and allow yourself to be a princess just for a moment (there’s always that Christmas list!!)

Happy weekend :O)

Chichi Furniture Adding Some Autumnal Colour To Your Home

Embracing the seasons can be fun when it comes to home decor and doesn’t have to mean re-decorating. We can all get bored with the same old cycle of change each year, but it can be fun to use each season as a time to mix up our homes a bit.

Follow natures unfaltering lead with colour, adding some autumnal hues to your home with a few accent furniture pieces.
