The Chaise Longue – Adding a Touch of French Charm

Had a hard day? Take a load off and ‘Laze on a Chaise’ from Chichi Furniture

Extremely comfortable, extremely stylish and extremely French Chic!

They make stunning features for a lounge, bedroom or hallway, be it as a centre piece, or a lift for an empty alcove, often with beautifully carved detailing and upholstered in either an elegant chic fabric or something vibrant and striking.

French Interior Design, Room by Room – The Stylish Black Entrance

Another Monday, another week, it comes round so quick!

Today our final hallway inspiration is stylish black. Make an impact with your entrance.

Black can be sleek, elegant and bold. You can create a crisp clean lined look, or a softer look by adding a few lighter tones or a highlight colour like silver or gold – add a few cushions on the sofa, a rug on the floor, a few choice ornaments on the console.

Adding a mirror will ensure there is plenty of light in the space, as although the furniture is black, you don’t want the space to feel closed in and ‘heavy’.

Below are a few stylish black pieces from Chichi, ideal for a hallway. Both consoles have an elegant curved shape instantly adding character and one has delicate vine leaf detail which breaks up the solid block of black if you want a more toned down look. The stunning seat is upholstered in velvet which adds texture and depth and offers that luxurious finish, the silver detail makes it less intrusive, as also seen with the single chair edged in silver.

If you have space, adding a bookshelf to an entranceway can be a great way to fill what can be difficult and sometimes wasted space. It can add interest and character too and again the collection of books itself can tone down the solid black.

 

French Interior Design, Room by Room – A Warm Welcome

Hello and welcome to a new week and another new scheme from Chichi Furniture :O)

Today we are still talking Hallways, but this time we looking at French rustic style.

This is possible one of my favorites. Country farm style pieces, creating an entrance way that instantly welcomes you in. Finished in modern pastel shades for that subtle touch of colour, with a distressed look added charm and warmth.

Picture a beautifully natural stone clad floor, neutral coloured walls, beautiful solid wood doors and French style console tables or dressers – with spring flowers, a wicker key basket and candles. Add a feature chair or sofa to give a relaxed feel to the space and Voila – C’est Parfait!

French Interior Design, Room by Room – A Grand Entrance!

Happy hump day everyone :O)

Today at Chichi Furniture, we are talking entrance ways/hallways. A room that is often neglected, yet is so important. Its the first impression people get of our homes so should be welcoming, warm and stylish.

Granted, they can be tricky rooms, often small and awkward or vast and echoey. The best thing to do is treat it as any other room, rather than a through way.

We will start with the ‘grand’ entrance way. That vast room that has the potential to make a huge impact as you open that front door, rather than being cold and characterless.

Choose large ornate French pieces for this grand room, maybe add an upholstered chair/chaise to add colour and texture and ensuring a more relaxed feel. Choose rich, sumptuous colours, golds and silvers to add warmth to the large space and create striking visual impact as you enter the room. Hang a large chandelier to drawer the ceiling down. You don’t want the furniture to look lost or awkward, you want it to all work together, add a large ornate console and mirror, texture, colour and pattern will add to the charm of the space, but ensure you make it work together and don’t just plonk it in odd areas, make it a useable space.

Don’t forget to look at the floor, adding a rug or tiling it in stunning decorative tiles can really complete a design, but make sure you keep a balance between patterns/colours, you want it to gel and not look chaotic. If you choose a heavily patterned floor, keep the upholstered furniture (if you choose any) simple, so its not lost.

A-Z French Style, Shabby Chic Furniture from Chichi

Happy Monday everyone. Today we are on the letter N and in Chichi Furniture’s vocab, that stands for the fabulous ‘Neopolitan’ range. Strong visual pieces with understated detail – these units aren’t fussy or flamboyant, but certainly not lacking in character. Each chest will have a strong presence in your home, either pulling a style together or standing alone as a central wonder – a stylish black unit with vivid contrasting drawers.

These pieces are such versatile units – ideal for adding a touch of ‘Je ne sais quoi’ to almost any room. They would be a striking feature in a Hallway, a stunning focal point in a lounge, or a great piece for adding a touch of style to your kitchen, as well as having ample storage.
