Italian Classic Chest of drawers

A chest of drawers, also called (especially in North American English) a bureau, is a piece of furniture that has multiple parallel, horizontal drawers stacked one above another.

Chests of drawers have traditionally been made and used for storing clothing, especially underwear, socks, and other items not normally hung in or otherwise stored in a closet. They are usually placed in a bedroom for this purpose, but can actually be used to store anything that will fit inside and can be placed anywhere in a house or another place. Various personal sundry items are also often stored in a chest of drawers.




Chests of drawers often come in 5-, 6-, and 7-drawer varieties, with either a single or a double top drawer.

Buy a bed end bench for your bedroom

A bedroom bench might not be a necessity, but adding one to the end of your bed is a great way to add traditional style, storage and a little extra seating to your bedroom. An ottoman, stool or chaise can be used in many ways: as a resting spot for throw pillows and blankets, a place to lay out tomorrow's clothes — even a spot to put on shoes or read a book. It can easily become a great style component too, since many benches come in eye-catching designs and colors.

Add one chaise lounge to your bedroom or living room

The chaise longue was invented in France during the eighteenth century. This was known as the rococo period in France and art, architecture and furniture during this period was marked by ornate hand carving with flowers and cherubs, lots of gilt and silk damask upholstery. Chaise lounges were popular in dressing rooms, sitting rooms and salons. Ladies would recline on their chaise lounges and read or hold forth on philosophy or fine art. The irregular, asymmetrical lines of a chaise lounge, with one side higher than the other, fit in perfectly with rococo decor.

You can seriously increase your living room's glamour by buying a chaise lounge. Add one to your bedroom and you might as well quit your day job in order to dedicate yourself to lounging around in silk pajamas and sipping champagne cocktails all day. Chaise lounges, also known in French as chaise lounges, are simply long chairs. They look just like regular, upholstered chairs only with very long seats that you can prop your legs up on. A chaise lounge could be a comfortable spot for you to stretch out and read a book on or, if you are having a party, you could potentially seat two or three people on it. It is a versatile piece of furniture.

All of our Chaise Lounges are 100% handmade and manufactured of high quality rubber wood.

Tips for cleaning fabric furniture

Upholstered furniture is as varied as the tastes of the owners that choose the colors, fabrics, patterns and textures. Even though upholstered furniture comes in various sizes, shapes and fabrics, they all have one thing in common - - they attract dirt. Normal wear and tear from family, pets and visitors is to be expected; however, you can extend the life of your upholstered furniture with regular cleaning and periodic deep cleaning. Deep cleaning your furniture will keep it looking beautiful longer.

Deep Cleaning Furniture Basics

1. Remove all covers and cushions. Check for loose buttons, broken zippers or any other items that need to be repaired.

2. If you have checked the manufacturer's cleaning instructions and know that the cushion covers may be washed, remove the cushion covers and check for stains. Pre-treat stains and launder according to the manufacturer's instructions. If the cushions are not washable or they cannot be removed, then proceed to the next step.

3. Use the hand attachments for your vacuum cleaner to thoroughly vacuum the entire piece of furniture. Make sure that you pay special attention to the crevices and corners to remove all loose dirt and debris from the furniture.

4. Inspect the cushions for any stains or spots. If you find stains, you will need to clean the stains by hand if you cannot remove the covers and wash them. Also, check for any stains on the frame of the upholstered furniture. You may need to spot treat the stains in order to remove them.

5. In the late '60s, the furniture industry adopted a code to identify how certain fabrics should be cleaned. Check the manufacturer's tag on your upholstered furniture to determine which of the four categories (W, S, W-S or X) applies to your furniture. Read the manufacturer's recommendations about what materials are best for cleaning the fabric either online or in your owner's manual. Following the directions, deep clean the entire surface of the upholstered furniture. Depending on the furniture cleaning code, you may be using water, solvents or commercial cleaning solutions; however, no matter what you clean with do not scrub the fabric with any abrasive materials to avoid damage.

6. Use a damp sponge to rub over the entire surface to remove any soap residue - - soap residue will attract more dirt if left on the furniture.


7. Allow the furniture to dry completely. Using a small fan will help the furniture dry faster and more thoroughly. Remember that part of deep cleaning is cleaning the wooden parts of the furniture too. Use a wood cleaner to clean and shine the wooden legs and arms of your upholstered furniture.

What is Baroque Furniture

The Baroque style uses exaggerated motionand clear detail to produce grandeur and exuberance in painting, sculpture,music, and decoration. Baroque furniture captures that flair and is obvious inrich detail, vibrant colors, and opulence. Decorations of the period wereprofusely detailed and highly ornamental. The Baroque started in the early1600s in Rome and spread all around Europe.
The Roman Catholic Church encouraged the opulent style by using Baroque furniture and paintings. The church said it wanted to use Baroque art and style to inspire raw emotions, thus enabling people to feel closer to religion. Aristocracy also appreciated the dramatic style of Baroque furniture and used it in their palaces. Baroque style favors large pieces, exaggerated decorations, colossal sculptures, and high volumes.
Louis XIV of France enjoyed the Baroquefurniture and used it as evidence of his regal glory. He was the King of Francefrom 1643 until 1715, when he died. It was heavily incorporated at hisVersailles royal palace.

Smalldetails were generally incorporated into Baroque furniture. Cherubs were oftendepicted in the art, and were added to almost any piece of furniture or decor.The cherubs were evident from fireplaces to paintings. They were also used asan accent in the furniture, often being carved into an arm chair or sofa.Nymphs and angels often accompanied, or replaced, the cherubs.

What is Rococo Furniture

Rococo furniture, also described as Louis Quinze, Louis or Louis XV, after the King of France who influenced it, originally began with this king in France, but is considered to be developed by two words - Rocaille, which is French for shell and the Italian word of Barocco, which stands for Baroque. This can give you some idea of the theme of the furniture, and is considered to be somewhat familiar to another style of furniture, known as Baroque furniture. 

Highly influenced by the French King, Louis XV, the styles of Rococo furniture are, as mentioned, very similar to that of Baroque furniture featuring strong appearances and symmetrical forms. However, the change in monarchy brought about a rather dramatic change of style and architecture and the Rococo furniture period began.

The style changed to be somewhat lighter and less dramatic in appearance, and Rococo furniture had a more elegant and sophisticated aesthetic. As the style became more and more developed, it was considered to be somewhat frivolous and set a more playful and delicate form of furnishings.

Unlike Baroque furniture, Rococo furniture seemed to centre more on asymmetrical designs rather than the symmetrical forms that King Louis XIV favoured, and by the early 1730's this theme of furniture reached a rather high and well regarded peak in France. It was more influencing in architecture and painting rather than furniture and often was on a much smaller scale, but still influenced the items of furniture within homes. The larger and grander designs were out, and lighter and prettier things were in vogue. 

Rococo in England was more developing in areas such as painting and the arts rather than furniture and architecture but with Thomas Chippendale, an English furniture designer, wonderful upholstered pieces of Rococo furniture were in fashion as were Rococo headboards, and these were considered much more elegant than previous designs. 

Even though Rococo furniture from France was a starting point for this so called Rococo England, the look was slightly less exuberant than that in France and its pieces less costly. However, it was only some 30 years after the peak of this style that it started to fall from vogue. There was a new style of furniture and architecture emerging, and there was no longer such a demand for the more intimate Rococo furniture pieces that were once so highly regarded fashion items.  With any period in history the fashion and trends of clothing and furniture styles change, and this was considered to be a rather small part of the style history of the world. It was perhaps too influenced by the Baroque period, and therefore had already had its limelight. It was therefore time for a new style to take hold. 

However, Rococo furniture is now again very much in demand in today's society and this high demand has bred a group of specialist suppliers. Now considered to be an investment, Rococo pieces of furniture are intricately beautiful and can form a breathtaking centrepiece for any home whether that be a Rococo chair or an extravagant Rococo mirror.
