Blink and before you know it, its February!

Don’t you find time is just flying by? I’ll be honest, February is possibly my worst month, its wet, cold and dark and most of us just want to hide away in our cosy homes.

So why not celebrate the dark, cold nights, by inviting friends over and dining in style to cheer yourselves up.

Number 7 on Chichi Furniture’s Top 20 Fabulous French Pics is a beautiful contemporary dining set, large enough for a grand gathering and stylish enough to transform your room and ‘wow’ your guests.

Chichi Furniture’s Top 20 Fabulous French Pic’s

Hello and welcome to number 18 of Chichi Furniture’s top 20.

Todays post is all about adding style and glamour to your dining room, whilst ensuring it remains an inviting, useable and homely space, where you can spend many a happy hour with friends and family.

The dining room below certainly has the wow factor. The table and chairs finished in silver leaf instantly stand out as a stunning feature, emphasised by the charming French carved detailing that adds beautiful definition, finished off with the incredibly chic black velvet upholstery that just oozes class and allows the silver to really shine.

Christmas is coming, the Goose is getting fat, make sure you don’t end up with Granny sitting on your lap!

The count down has nearly begun as the 1st December looms ever closer. We are thinking about presents, planning when to get the tree and calculating if the turkey will fit in the oven!

But after all the planning, how many of us end up sitting up to table propped on a linen bin, odd stall or picnic chair, as the family struggles to fit round the table.

This year Chichi Furniture wants to ensure you have the perfect Christmas, with the perfect size table with plenty of chairs, so all you have to worry about is what drink you will enjoy.

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)

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.

French Interior Design, Room by Room – Rustic Dining

Hip Hooray we’ve made it to Friday!! 

Chichi Furniture’s Room Inspiration today is a Rustic Style Dining Room – and this is one of my personal faves.

It encompasses all things homely and inviting. That French farmhouse feel, with a large family dining table and chairs, creating a dining room that will be a social hub with warm tones and a relaxed environment. Beautiful solid wooden furniture in its natural form and/or painted in neutral and pastel shades, with a distressed finish evokes a relaxed environment. Sometimes when things are too perfect, people don’t relax for fear of damaging something.

Adding a beautiful ivory mirror would look great in this scheme, but maybe even more effective would be a gold framed mirror, which would just add a new dimension to the natural elements and teamed with an understated chandelier to create a well balanced but multi layered room.

French Interior Design, Room by Room – Dine in Style!

Good morning everyone, it’s certainly getting colder here and it’s Monday – not a great combination for inducing happiness, so Chichi Furniture’s Room inspiration today is glamour and glitz. We’re talking all out indulgence and warming up the scheme with golds and silvers.

We are still on the dining theme, so below are some fabulous furniture pieces to help create that chic, stylish room to wow all your guests. Don’t hold back, with golds and silvers you can get away with large, bold pieces, the furniture can be fabulously ornate, super size the chandelier and layer the room with textures and detailing. 

Maybe consider adding one extra key colour to break up the mass of gold/silver so as to appreciate it more. Maybe add a feature chair in a corner, hang beautiful curtains at the window, if the floor is wooden you could have a large coloured rug to lift the scheme.

Whether you go silver or gold, have fun with this one and let your creativity run free :O)
