    Interior dcor must be aesthetically pleasing yet functional. There is a reason why the timeless phrase -home is where is the heart is’ stands true regardless of where or how we choose to live. The way you organize and decorate your living space speaks volumes about your taste and personality. More importantly, it brings forth your essence, becoming a part of the ambience you create.

    Furniture, both wooden and leather imbues an aura of rugged charm. Perhaps, it’s their naturalness that appeals to us or the fact that they keep us cool, warm and comfortable all year. All the great furniture designers have made efforts to balance their artistic creativity with the natural affinity of these two materials. Many of them have done it exceptionally well.

    For instance, Chippendale is a style of furniture made by British designer Thomas Chippendale in the 1700s, intended to give people a sense of elegance to their homes. Often defined as anglicized versions of Gothic, Chinese, French and Rococo styles, Chippendale styles continue to be in demand even today because the furniture are not only attractive and create a classic feel, but are also equally durable and long-lasting. While original furniture from that era is almost impossible to find, especially in the same form, replica pieces are available.

    Besides the sturdiness of the pieces, designs with stories to tell often seem to live on across generations. Exclusive leather furniture studios like PortsideCaf have similar aesthetic values, persistently pushing the boundaries of artistic expression and functionality. As materials, leather and wood have been chosen for this very same reason. Not only are they long-lasting but give the furniture designer plenty of creative options to play with. These pieces are handmade and comfortable to use, bringing out all its inspirations with every mark, curve and embellishment. The best part is that they are all original designs.

    They come in all shapes, colours and sizes so you can create living spaces the way you really wish to. With leather furniture like these, finding the perfect piece to enliven your home or office space is never an issue. www.portsidecafe.com

    Setting up a care home can be a daunting yet exciting experience; however there is one further thing to consider – choosing the right furniture.

    Care home furniture must fulfil a wide range of needs, from looking and feeling comfortable and enticing – to being highly functional and durable. The best furniture you can choose covers all of these factors and more, allowing residents (who are often scared and worried at having to move) feel at home; as well as safe and secure.

    The first thing to consider is the chairs you’ll place in the living area of the home, as it is useful if the reflect the chairs one might find in a residents’ house. These are generally high-backed, neutrally colour and furled armrests. These should also have ergonomic qualities, as residents will typically be sat in them for a large portion of time.

    There are times, such as when the patient is ill or has a turn, where you will need to extract them from the chair easily, causing the minimum amount of distress. Specially-made care home furniture is usually adapted to meet this need, but it s worth having a trail-run before signing on the dotted line. Additionally, chairs should ideally be wipe-clean, so that any accidents are easily taken care of, with minimal impact on the furniture.

    Secondly, the furniture found in care home bedrooms is equally important, as it should be comfortable and simple to use. As care homes are generally built with the aim of making them feel like a real ‘home’, furniture can sometimes be less sturdy or durable; but this is something you should avoid at all costs, as your furniture needs to be able to last for years, and be capable of withstanding added pressure from those residents who are less mobile.

    Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, care homes should be a place of peace and tranquillity, allowing vulnerable adults to live out their last days in peace. The best piece of advice is to make it look as homely as possible, without letting the medical aspect overrule it.
