Nailhead Detail - What to expect in 2017


By  Shop Grand Central 



Nailhead detail is becoming a popular trend on other types of furniture. In 2017, furniture designers are welcoming unique nailhead patterns that defy the traditional accent on upholstered pieces such as sofas and headboards. This year, it will make its way onto credenzas, storage chests and even certain light fixtures. Now you can have multiple pieces of furniture with nailhead detail to add some personality and style to your space! Let’s take a look at some pieces to enter the spotlight.


Occasional tables:

Add a hint of glamour to your home with a sophisticated occasional table, adorned of nailhead detail. These occasional tables defy the typical look with their intersecting nailhead design, making them one of a kind. In addition to their uniqueness, these trunks each hold extra-large storage to meet your organizational needs. To make it complete, a durable metal hand and padlock latch finish the glamourous look.



Ottomans & benches:
Draw attention to any room with a magnificent classy nailhead bench. The linen seat decorated with studded detailing creates a beautiful accent bench. This particular bench is combined with an ash wood and an x frame which gives way to a mixed media look. Also, lifting the seat reveals a hidden compartment, which is perfect for extra storage. Surely, anyone can appreciate this hidden functionality!




The classic nailhead upholstered bed:
Add an impressive centerpiece to your bedroom with an elegant blend of linen upholstery and a nailhead trim on your bed. This combination creates a beautiful contemporary style, with an uncluttered look and a sophistication that will not likely go out of style! Pick a neutral tone, and you’ll be set for years to come.






The nailhead detail trend will impact furniture designs in various ways this year. Designers are working overtime to think outside the box and come up with new ways to embellish your space. Will you be on board with this particular trend?

Marble On Your Furniture


By  Shop Grand Central 





Perhaps one of the biggest home design trends to make an appearance in 2017 will undoubtedly be marble. Design experts predict that marble will not only become an increasingly sought after material for countertops, flooring and backsplash, but there will be a surge in demand for household furniture and items. In fact, some of the staple furniture pieces will be occasional tables. Let’s take a look at how the marble trend prediction will affect this category of furniture.


The sofa table
As you know, the sofa table compliments your sofa, by conveniently hugging its back. It adds depth to your living room, all while offering extra storage space. If marble is mixed in the equation, you get a beautiful rectangular simplistic design whose form follows function and style appeal. The popular marble sofa table features a marble top and a sleek textured bronze metal leg design.



The end table
Bear in mind the same idea for the end table. If you loved the picture you painted behind your sofa, then you will surely find an end table appealing as well. Except this time around you have an option between a round or square design. Picture a beautiful marble end table by your sofa or loveseat’s side. Let these images speak for themselves.



 



Nesting cocktail tables
Last but not least, the round nesting cocktail tables will project elegance right in the center of your conversation space, as it will tie together your living room seating. Not to mention it will serve you well to rest refreshments for your guest! Even on days that they will stand alone, the focal point of your living room will embody a certain refinement.



Adding these pieces in your living room is the perfect and stylish solution to creating a touch of elegance. From white to grey and any shade in between, marble paired with steel will capture much of the refinement seen in some of the most beautifully designed homes.

Furnishing Your Dorm For College







Starting college can be quite scary, since most students wind up out of state. Having said that, rather than feeling like you’re always waking up in a strange place, try to create a home away from home. Your dorm may not be as big as your home, but you can definitely manage to make a room feel homey and transform it into a functional bedroom, living room & study. If you have the typical 100 square feet to play with, you should select multifunctional pieces for your space. Let’s take a look at some of the main pieces to make it under the spotlight.

The Sleeper:

A sleeper is perhaps one of the most useful pieces you can purchase for your dorm. It can pose as your bed or as a sofa in your transformable living room area. Whether you need to take a snooze, or would like to take a break from the books to watch a movie, the sleeper sofa is the perfect accommodation. 






A fold-out desk or dining area:
A compact desk complete with convenient storage is a dream come true! You will surely be pleased with the amazingly functionality of this piece. When you’re done studying, you can conveniently fold it away to clear up the space in your dorm, so you can keep clutter away and maintain an airy feel in your room. In addition to a neat desk, you can also use this very same piece for dining, rather than eating on your sleeper.







Bookcase or tv console:
Another great multifunctional piece is an open shelf bookcase. This piece can serve a bookcase for your textbooks and as a tv console below a nice flat screen tv! Who said you can’t include some of your favorite movies on the bottom shelf or a gaming console?






Now that you’re all set, you can begin your academic year with peace of mind. Good luck!
