The fabrics were hung by the chimney with care in hopes that the perfect choice soon would be clear!
Word continues to travel that if you buy new pieces for your home from Charlton Furniture, you probably won’t need to replace them for many years, if not decades to come. Our furniture is engineered and built for endurance and sustained good looks. Thinking your investment through and feeling confident that the colors and the styles will remain interesting to you for the long haul is all part of the furniture buying process, but it can be challenging. We never want our customers to feel silly for taking the time needed to make the choices that are best for them. It is rare for someone to come in and make up their mind about a custom sofa on their very first visit. One of the best ways to choose your favorite is to take some fabrics home with you for a couple of days to see what they look like in your personal environment. Watch how the shades of the fabric may slightly change from morning to night, from natural light to lamp light. Pay attention to the other finishes that are already in the room so that you may create harmony between your new and existing furniture. This is also a good way to get the rest of the family involved in the decision.
This topic was inspired by my own Mother who is trying to buy a swivel chair for her living room. She has literally taken out about forty-five fabrics and has changed her mind at least seven times because she wants to make certain that she is making the right choice (Love you Mom). The thing to remember about decorating is that there may be several options that work nicely. It’s easy to weed out the ones that don’t make sense but narrowing down to the winner and actually pulling the trigger is the goal.
The staff at Charlton Furniture excels at guiding people to the finish line. We offer several levels of design service from simply steering you in the right direction in the showroom to house call appointments with fully executed floorplans accompanied by suggestions for frames, fabrics, rugs, art and accessories. We will give as little or as much input as you desire. The best rooms come together when there is a happy collaboration!
