With so many seating choices in a room it is hard to know the differences between them. These days accent chairs serve as sort of an accessory in the room. They are not the main seating in the room. Accent chairs are mainly utilized for decorative purposes and to bring out and compliment other furniture pieces. As the name of the chair implies, it is a chair to accent a room, yet provide occasional seating.

Wow, it sure is gloomy outside in Los Angeles today. This is the time of year when we tend to slow down and stay indoors and become more sedentary. It is also a time when the weather affects our moods a little, some more than others in a more adverse way. It is time to remedy the situation by adding more light to your décor. Now mind you, you don’t necessarily have to go out and buy expensive lighting and hire a lighting designer to specify mood lighting. I mean you can if you want to and have the means, however you can just go to your local thrift store and purchase additional table lamps. Yes you will be using a little more electricity, well not if you use the cfl’s but you will be proactive in warding off the blue’s.

As I was contemplating today’s topic, I had an idea to try something different for a change. I set out to look at some of the products that we carry and place them together as if I was designing a dining room. Mind you, it has been years since I have dabbled in interior design and planning, so I was curious to see if I could. But it is kind of hard to visualize the final outcome unless I draw it out. The first thing that I picked out was the 2 Dufresne Red Velveteen Dining Chairs. I like these because they are unusual and velvet and I thought that they would go well with the Roca Dining Table.

I think of my room as my little studio. I have my bed, my living room, and my office within one place. It is quite cozy. Creating and reinventing your bedroom or any room for that matter can be a good thing. I find that it helps bring in the new and aids in keeping you motivated by enabling you to see possibilities. Sometimes life can feel stagnate, and you just need a change, even a little change will do. It is really a matter of perspective.

The Hang It All Coat Rack is a superior product compared to other similar products. It features 14 hooks verses the 8 or 10 found in the department stores. In addition, it doesn’t cause problems when you open and close the door because it is not an over the door apparatus. I am very happy with my Hang It All Coat Rack because it is has more hooks than the one from my local department store. Yes I did have to drill 4 holes in my door, but when you remove it, the holes are easy to cover up with some light spackling and paint. The convenience and increased performance is well worth the installation considerations.
