The question of choosing Trendy or Timeless has always been a hot debate. What does that even mean, though? Trendy tends to be reflective of the present. Over time, trends cycle out of style and require upkeep to stay in fashion. It can make your home match your current aesthetic. Mrs. Billie explains, "Accessorizing in a trendy fashion or design is always easy to change as one trend dies and another is birthed! Trendy is exciting and fun!"
Playing around with those new styles is exciting! Timeless supersedes styles and trends that come and go because they are just that—timeless staples. Choosing certain styles, colors and textures of wood, stone or leather envelop your home in a timeless feel that will allow you to change pieces out as seasons change and we grow.
At AFD, we have both of those options for you. We make sure we are equipped with those new styles, textures, and even colors of the year while also having a large selection of leathers and linen pieces for those wanting to switch pieces out less often.
With the many different styles, each room in your home has the potential to match your vision board. Before you shop, though, it is important to know whether you should be shopping for sectionals or individual pieces such as sofas and loveseats. Many people are unaware that they can, in fact, fit a sectional in their space while others need a sofa and loveseat to open it up. Here are a few differences in the two:
Sofas are individual-polished look, traditional space for few guests.
Sofas allow your guests to sit at a distance comfortably away from the host and other guests. However, you have less seating.
Sectionals are considered to be more informal and perfect for gatherings.
Sectionals are typically multiple pieces in one that can be customized in placement. They are more relaxed, good for smaller places and sometimes asymmetrical with a right or left-facing chaise.
If you walk into the store and find a sectional perfect for you but its chaise is on the opposite side you need, ask us about the layout! Many sectionals are available in a reverse layout and come with lots of options!
This is the most important factor. Some spaces mean that adding a sectional can cramp it. Other spaces it might look too small with one or two scattered pieces of the sofa and sectional. Finding the right pieces for you is important to us at AFD.
We offer a layout for you to try out. All you need are the dimensions of your space and you can place that sectional or sofa in that space to give you an idea of what it might look like in your home before you buy. Our design consultants are brilliant in assisting in this area and will draw your space out and show you what options work for your space.
What many people fail to realize is that if you can fit a sofa and loveseat, you can fit a sectional.
Looking at motion? No problem! Our team will make sure you have enough space to recline and relax! The mood and ambiance are adjusted with the changes of the space, as well, which is always important to keep in mind while you shop! Luckily, our wonderful sales representatives will help you find the mood and style you are looking for.
With your living room now sporting that perfect sectional or sofa, you now may be wondering about one of the most important rooms in your home.
The debate of sectionals and sofas is only one part of your home that you might be shopping for but what about others? The bedroom is perhaps the most important part of every home because it is 100% you and not usually seen by guests. This is where you sleep and spend a lot of your life.
Some of our sales representatives provided some features they think are important to look for:
With the holidays approaching, dinner parties are a go! We want to make sure that you have the right amount of space for your family or friends for all seasons!
From counter to regular height, rounded to friendship dining styled tables, AFD has plenty of options for you and your needs.
However, it isn’t every day that you need a table for 10 if you are a family of four or empty nesters. How can you optimize your space to ensure that you will have that space when your grandchildren, children or friends visit?
Leaves! No, not the leaves from trees but insert leaves! Many dining sets these days come with options to insert a piece to expand your table size. Just store it away when they are gone and pull it right back out when they return! It’s perfect for those who like to host or just enjoy the company of others around dinner time!
Don’t stop with just the big pieces in your space! Bring your room to life with accessories and accents! Some tips one of our designers wanted to make sure you had was to save these accents for your focal point and keep your neutrals in items you want to invest in for long term!
Not only have you fully furnished your home with us, but if you look around in any of our showrooms and pick up that beautiful vase on the accent table, you’ll see that the vase is for sale too!
That’s right! We can be your start and your finish. We offer any accessory you can think of from rugs and pillows to greenery and the vases they come in! Add some greenery for warmth and freshness, varying heights to find a nice balance, and a bold pop of color to white furniture to really show your artistic side!
When you come in store, feel free to grab up a few of your favorite pillows to go along with that beautiful sectional or accent chair! Play with textures and colors because there are plenty to go around! Don’t be scared to ask for help or a second opinion! We are here to help you because we are here for you!
