Furniture That Fits Has Flair - 07/19/2000
From The Arizona Republic

Choosing a home? Want to keep your existing furniture? Consider a home where your furniture fits, proportionate to the space. The article offers the tips:

  • Add plants to the side of a desk , console table or chest to make it appear larger.
  • Consider two 7’0 sofas or a 7’0” sofa and a loveseat placed together in an “L” instead of committing to buying a sectional. A table between the two at the intersection will maximize the use of that space.

When setting a new color palette:

  • Re-mat art with a different color matting that’s tied into the color scheme.
  • Go with a solid sofa and brighten it with patterned pillows. You can always replace the pillows.

Use flexible furnishings:

  • Benches offer versatility, and if tufted can serve as a table or footrest
  • Tufted ottomans offer flexibility as coffee tables or seating
  • Columns can be a table base or plant stands
