Andrina King Fabric Bed

Lately we have been seeing so many beautiful fabric beds in design blogs and magazines and think the Andrina Bed is a great choice if you are looking for this style. The nailhead trim on the headboard gives a subtle modern touch and the fabric has been hand tailored to ensure smooth corners and straight seams. This can also be ordered in a variety of colors and prints, so there is definitely one that will fit your style.

The Bryson collection blends cottage, southwest, and country styles to create a unique and homey look that will complement many decors. The sliding glass doors, tough lights and mirror back allow for all angles of items to be on display and the 3 adjustable glass shelves mean that you can feature items of varying heights. We especially love that a multi-step process ensures that the wood will retain the beautiful finish for many years.

10% Off Hillsdale Furniture

If you’ve seen our emails or been to the Home Gallery Stores homepage recently, you’ve probably noticed we have a great deal going on. Now through the end of February, you can get an extra 10% off of one of our favorite brands, Hillsdale Furniture. If you aren’t familiar with Hillsdale, we thought it would be helpful to give you a brief rundown of all the reasons why we love them and think you will too.

Top Ten Reasons Why You Should Take Advantage of Ten Percent Off Hillsdale

1)      Good design is at the heart of Hillsdale’s business – in fact, the owners of Hillsdale are the designers. They consistently come up with collections that are forward thinking and set the tone for the next big trends. There’s a style to fit everyone. With Hillsdale designs, there isn’t a focus on just one type of look. They understand that all people want innovative furnishings but do not all have the same taste, so in their designs you will find a range from traditional to contemporary and everything in between.

2)      On all of Hillsdale pieces, the shipping is free! Plus, everything is Quick Ship. That means for smaller items, such as accent chairs or bar stools, they will be delivered via standard shipping and take around 10 days. Or for larger items, expect a 3 week wait period for delivery,

3)      One item Hillsdale is particularly known for is their bar stools – there are a wide variety of sizes, heights, shapes and styles, so you are definitely sure to find a set to suit your needs. Take a look at all of the bar stool options here. 

4)      Size does matter – Hillsdale understands that not everybody has a huge dining room but that shouldn’t stop you from entertaining. Dining tables from Hillsdale come in a variety of sizes and many have a leaf to help accommodate all of your guests. One of our favorite tables is the Arbor Hill Rectangular Leg Counter Height Table with an 18” self-storing butterfly leaf that seats up to six.

5)      We are big fans of furnishings that can blend with a variety of styles and spaces. One aspect of Hillsdale design is that many of their pieces blend materials, such as wood and metal, which allows it to fit just as easily in a rustic décor as it would in an industrial setting.

6)      This bed is exactly what we’ve been searching for. We are always looking for ways to be more organized (or at least find an attractive solution to hide the mess). This bed from the Wilshire Collection has drawers underneath to keep the clutter contained and a bookcase as the headboard, making it an ultimate in space saving design.

7)      The prices – you would think with all the effort put into great design, it would mean sky-high prices. Hillsdale understands that everyone deserves quality furniture and creates pieces to fit all budgets.

8)      Hillsdale makes furniture for every member of the family – they make great pieces for kids and teens that have all the same great design features but suited more for their needs and taste.

9)      It’s made for living – not just showing. Not only are Hillsdale designs great from a style perspective but they are also smart. The durability and functionality is taken into account just as much as the look when Hillsdale creates their furnishings. Hillsdale wants your pieces to last and fit your lifestyle for many years to come.

10)   The 10% off discount is only good through February 28th – with so many good reasons to choose Hillsdale, now is the perfect time to purchase new pieces for your home.

Las Vegas Winter Market 2013 Trends

Last week, some of the Home Gallery Stores team had the privilege of attending the Las Vegas Winter 2013 Market to see the new collections from our brands and check out a few new ones. Las Vegas Market is an international furnishings showcase that combines style, inspiration and functionality and features a comprehensive array of new product from thousands of leading manufacturers and lines in furniture, mattress, lighting, decorative accessories, floor coverings, home textiles and more. We wanted to break down some of the trends that we noticed, so you can get a head start on planning your home décor for the spring.

Midcentury Revival: Midcentury Modern is an architectural, graphic, and interior design that marks the early 30’s through early 60’s – think Frank Lloyd Wright and Mad Men. The marks of midcentury design are clean, simple lines and a “less is more” style.  The standout furnishings of the look are wood (typically teak) pieces that let the natural beauty of the wood show through. This is not an overly ornate style; it is about investing in quality furnishings that allow the quality craftsmanship be the focal point. For upholstery and accessories, colors to look for are Mustard, Avocado and Tangerine and don’t be afraid of mixing in graphic retro patterns.

How to Get the Look:

  • Keep the walls white – It’s good to keep a neutral palette to let the quality of each piece shine through and balance out the richness of such bold colors.
  • Add a few accent pieces – Since Midcentury design is about keeping things simple, many of the wood pieces will effortlessly blend in with your current décor. Or add an accent chair in a bold color to give an otherwise neutral room new life.
  • Mix textures – If your home has a more industrial look, Midcentury Modern is the perfect juxtaposition. The clean, simples lines will be a great contrast to the harsher, rough look that is the trademark of an industrial look.

Some new collections we saw this trend in were Somerton’s “Soho” and Broyhill’s “Mardella”, which was inspired by the 1960’s “Brasilia” collection.

While these collections will not be available until Spring2013, here are a few pieces you can get now to get a head start on the trend:

Glamour and Romance: Another trend that was seen in many of the showrooms had furnishings that were luxe and feminine but not overtly girly. Pieces that fit in this category featured soft, curvy lines, luxurious fabrics, and tufted details. One of Pantone’s trending color palettes’ for 2013 was “Connoisseur”, which was characterized by cool neutrals like alyssum white and beechnut green, contrasted with warmer tones of violets and orchids, liquid pink, and deep mahogany, all set against accents of champagne beige and silver.

How to Get the Look:

  • Look for little details – A few subtly placed crystals or beautifully carved edges will help make a bold statement and achieve this look without it overwhelming your current décor.
  • Choose classic silhouettes in a key fabric such as velvet or beautiful color, like violet. This way the piece will can be used for many years to come – even after you are ready to try a new look.

“Classics” by A.R.T. and “Arrondissement” by Stanley were two new collections we saw that were great examples of this look.

Art Deco: Popular in the 1920’s and 1930’s, Art Deco is characterized by bold geometric patterns, luxurious finishes and materials. Sharp color contrasts like beige and black lacquer with bold reds, blues, yellows, greens were used. Chrome was very popular during this time, so you will see this used frequently for accents and lighting. Pantone’s 2013“Glamour” palette is inspired by Art Deco design and features Rio Red, Monaco Blue, Tap Shoe Black, Chinchilla, Ethereal Gray, Moonmist, and Jasper Teal.

How to get the look:

  • Texture and Materials – One of the main ingredients for this style is the look and feel of your pieces. Heavy lacquer, marble, mirrored finishes, and glass were all popular materials during this time and trademarks of this design.
  • Go Bold – Art Deco design is not about holding back or going simple. Mix it in your current décor by investing in one great accent piece, like a marble top server with chrome details. Or get a few great accessories, like an oversize, geometric mirror or gold and black pillows to add some interest to a room.

Lexington’s “Aquarius” collection and Star International “Void Dining Table – Krystal Collection” paired with “Forma Red Dining Chair – Regis Collection” are new for 2013 and are reminiscent of Art Deco design.
