American Eagle Takes Off

Mar. 12th, 2008 | 06:58 pm

The search for the right sofa is on. And the push to more modern lifestyles and the breaking of tradition shows itself in furniture selection now more than ever before. American Eagle crafts furniture living room and dining room sets that are futuristically thematic. but with a distinct design that allows every piece to exude its message. The Club Zero sofa (and set) ironically contains the fine lines of classical design with a renegade appearance of rough individuality.

There's Only One Zuo Modern

Mar. 7th, 2008 | 06:17 pm

When it comes to Modern Furniture Design, the craftsmanship of Zuo Modern borders on near supernatural. Again, genius lies in simplicity and this is illustrated precisely in Zuo designs. They focus squarely on office, dining, outdoor, bar, and occasional furniture. Its theme is that of modern contemporary with a perpetual view into the future, fused with simplicity and imagination.

Their chairs and tables alone are enough to encourage a full redesign starting with a button sofa or chaise lounge chair. When one takes hard look at a Zuo piece in the home, it becomes apparent that the styling is sharply meant to enhance the look of other pieces and the overall room. Once the utility aspect of a particular design is mastered, then the next benefit is purely visual and imaginaitve: Design must be driven to accelerate the value of maximum visual effect(s). You will always look at your furniture more than you will sit in it, and it is this essence, which is taken for granted that is captured well in Zuo designs.

Powell Furniture: The Leader In Home Accent Design

Feb. 22nd, 2008 | 06:11 pm

Few furniture manufacturers have the ability to consistently occupy diametrically opposed areas in classic and modern furniture design. And I'm talking about furniture design in one particular category. Now imagine a manufacturer that can accomplish this across many different furniture areas and subcategories. That name would be Powell Furniture. As the leader in home accent furniture design, Powell not only creates unique pieces for a wide selection of areas, but it also creates in a manner that allows consumers to mix and match units from different furniture categories and design modes with pure artistic flow. It is not uncommon for a buyer to purchase a modern design Powell Z Dresser for her bedroom and a classic design Mayfair Cherry Secretary Cabinet that complements the future. Keep in mind that Powell invented the original furniture armoire. Now those are two claims few manufacturers can make, let alone one.


 



Powell furniture may appear challenging to buy (high end luxury brand area), and a lot harder to sell. The company only markets through its exclusive authorized dealers. So when you buy Powell, you're not only getting the upper echelons of furniture craftsmanship, but you're also getting high end service and support levels that can only come from an Authorized Dealer. If you want unique design selection that's highly polarized, but complementary between classic and modern, long-lasting durability and service support, then Powell is your brand.

Loveseats within the Modern Collection

Feb. 14th, 2008 | 06:39 pm

Loveseats seem to be on many people's minds at the moment, especially on this particular holiday - no pun intended. In any case, 100% pure leather is the way to go for the living room. Loveseats allow for full seating comfort with a space saving advantage, not afforded to regular sofas. Not that this takes away from the purpose of sofa furniture, but loveseats in addition to their contemporary chairs can furnish any space not large enough to accommodate sofa additions. Studio apartment renters/Condo owners will find this concept attractive. One bedroom apartment renters/Condo owners will have even more options, and homeowners will appreciate the value of loveseat furniture, as complimentary to the rest of their sofa sets.


American Eagle Leather Love Seat in White & Black Leather vinyl combinations should be avoided when full leather options are available, especially pigmented leather. The durability of pigmented leather actually improves the look and quality of its seating over time, as opposed to basic upholstered fabrics that lack the long-term resilience of leather. New styles with sleek armrests that artistically flow down into the base of the seat should be considered, as a viable (and visually pleasing) option to the bulkier traditional/contemparory styles that have ruled the market (and not to mention people's living rooms) for so long.


American Eagle appears to be on this trend towards modern and unique stylings, as we move deeper into the 21st century. Each of their sets is manufactured with a distinct theme and direction, but within the unified purpose of forward progression. Hopefully, prospective buyers will take a look at American Eagle's various sofa loveseat collections, and embark on choosing a distinctive design that reflects one's true persona.

Modus International - Classic Finish with Modern Design

Feb. 12th, 2008 | 11:22 am

Some people like rich dark woods and classic leathers, whether it be living room, bedroom, buffet/sideboard or dining sets. A unique combination of modern architecture and the classic wood grain finish normally associated with antique design(s) brings to mind, Modus International. Where ever one goes to buy furniture, the timeless design and modern pieces by this manufacturer always make shoppers stop and take notice. The craftsmanship of sharp edges with a dense appearance of sustained durability bodes well for long-term consideration of this investment. Price-wise, it's not for the meek, as Modus is known very well for its high-end luxury design.

Therefore, relative to other furniture purchases based on more economic-related criteria, an investment in a Modus set or piece should be approached with caution. Planning is the name of the game, but it should be done so more introspectively - how your furniture represents your reflection of self, although abstract is the ultimate consideration. This perspective should not be subordinated to other important factors, which could equally way into the purchase decision. Regardless of one's choice, Modus is a great option.
