Facing The Trends

When looking for new furniture or new pieces, the many different options and styles may seem overwhelming at first. Many may come in and not even know the different styles and their looks and become easily overwhelmed with the many different options. How do you prevent that?

Honestly, it can be difficult. Trends are always changing, so our taste for décor may switch from vintage to modern within a span of a few searches on Pinterest. Being happy with your home furnishing is the foundation to the mood of the home, and how it will fare throughout the years compared to neighbors, family members, and friends, which is all determined by how you style your pieces. But rebranding your entire home? It can be expensive!

You just purchased your new piece from American Factory Direct? Great! Let’s accessorize! Accessories will be your new best friend! One or two pieces is all you need to make a room a whole new style! I'm serious! Let me give you an example. Let's say your furniture style from 10 years ago was traditional, and now... so is your entire home, which is great! Swapping out the end tables, coffee tables, and adding different textures in your throw pillows can make any tradition seem brand new!

The proof is in the pudding... or rather, in the picture! With these two gorgeous Chenin Accent Chairs on the more traditional side from our Uttermost collection, our team has added a beautiful accent table, the Hailey Coffee Table, along with the pictured Teak Root Console Table.

Suddenly, this once purely styled-in-one-trend home has adapted to handle any future trends with just a few changes. Not only will accent pieces help you to adapt new styles and trends into your home, but if you’re looking to purchase bigger pieces, AFD has that as well!

We have plenty of options in just about any trend you can think of ranging from rustic, farmhouse, modern, contemporary, transitional, tradition and more, which you can style your lovely AFD accent furniture around! For Farmhouse, our most popular bedroom set so happens to be called the Louisiana Bedroom Set! It’s distressed, white frame and matching dresser, nightstand, and mirror make it the perfect choice for anyone interested in that style!

For the more Contemporary Trend, the Albion Dining Set includes the sleek, sharp lines of the modern style, while also featuring its cool grey color. It is a cutting-edge style of a finish revealing a wood grain texture.

All of this may seem like a lot of information, but it is okay to be overwhelmed. Take some time to do some research to figure out which style and trends you want in your home, but most importantly, which ones make you feel at home. If you ever need help, AFD offers in-home designers for help and guidance to making your house a home.

The good thing is, you can find all of these styles and more exclusively at our showrooms or by heading to our website to get your next ideas for your home!
