If purchasing "green" furniture is important to you there are questions you can ask to determine just how environmentally friendly your furniture piece is. For example, find out if any of the wood used in the construction of your furniture piece was responsibly harvested. It is also important to know if glues and finishes that may contain toxins were used. Many furniture manufacturers use nails in place of glue to reduce the toxins and finishes are often low VOC stains. Foam stuffing can also emit toxins into the air. Therefore, some furniture manufacturers are offering upholstered products that have been stuffed with natural material such as buckwheat or recycled foam. Keep in mind that imported products do not always meet the same green standards we have come to expect in the U.S.
When considering your choices, take into consideration your lifestyle. For example, if you have small children or pets, its a good idea to make sure the dining room sets you choose are rounded and not with square edges. Also, measure your space and know the dimensions you are working with before you start to shop.
Home styling trends come, and those same home styling trends quickly go. What was referred to as the undeniable "must-have" piece of furniture prominently on display in the living room of yesterday is now tucked away deep in the basement, far from the sight line of guests visiting today. Fortunately for the most style-savvy among us, there is also an ageless alternative in home decor that's an excellent fit for any generation: Amish furniture.
This style will suit if the lines, curves and shapes of the furniture are distinct. For this, the colors should be bright and attractive like glossy black, rich espresso brown, etc. Ideally, a small foam roller is used to apply the paint on the furniture instead of a brush, so that the brush marks do not appear. To maintain its freshness and warmth, avoid any intricate detail work or wood finishes. Just apply a coat of high-gloss polyurethane after the paint has dried up.
