At Feathers, we understand the importance of decorating rooms from top to bottom. In this regard, the furniture options you choose will have a dramatic effect on the space. Seating is just one component of the style outline as we like to call it, as it is important to also not forget about tables and dressers. The former are critical accent pieces that can be used to serve a number of purposes. End tables are well suited for custom lighting and also provide room for storing reading materials. Coffee tables, on the other hand, are typically considered focal points. They can instantly make an empty room cozy and inviting. While dressers are primarily used for storing clothing, this doesn’t mean they too are not important from an aesthetic perspective.
The process of selecting any type of home furnishing product can be a challenging one, as the best way to approach designing a room is to visualize it from a big picture point of view. Rarely does selecting pieces at random achieve the desired effect, which is why taking the time to decide which tables and dressers to buy is important. Fortunately, due to the smaller size of these furnishings, they are more portable and thus offer greater flexibility when it comes to placement. Unlike sofas and beds, you have more spaces to think about, which can be an obstacle in it of itself.
The first thing to consider when buying a new table or dresser is the room the furniture will be placed in. For a living room, for example, the square footage will inevitably be larger than that of a bedroom, which in turn calls for bigger end tables. You shouldn’t compromise space for the sake of style, as we have come to realize that petite pieces are often more appealing.
Another thing to keep in mind is shape. The rule of the thumb for rectangular and square-shaped tables is to keep them near corners, or for that matter keeping round or oval furnishings away from such spaces. Of course, you can always mix and match styles (something we encourage) until you find that perfect look. Our Francis, Salvador and Sebastian coffee tables are elegant and traditional, and can transform any living space into a cozy retreat. Dresser sizes should be determined in the same way. If the primary purpose is for extra linen storage as opposed to your regular wardrobe, a piece like Feathers’ Linen Fold Cabinet can be an attractive option. It is small enough to fit in most rooms, but large enough for accommodation purposes.
