Celebrating our Born Heritage with our “Local-is-Lekker” Collection

Celebrating our Born Heritage this Heritage Month

Heritage Day provides us not only with an opportunity to celebrate our diversity of beliefs and traditions, but to enjoy one of our favourite national pastimes. So, make your way to Born Furniture to find yourself the perfect home furniture to make your braai day even more special!

Defining our respective cultures and heritages in South Africa is at times challenging but often exciting. The humble braai has since become the de facto means for celebrating Heritage Day, and we have everything you need to get you grilling in style. 

Any good braai, however, is not without a lekker seat. Lucky for you, Born Furniture not only has a selection of comfy chesterfields, but spectacular wingbacks to match. Switch up your usual braai dining area with contemporary dining chairs or a modern take on seating space.

Let’s dive into our Heritage selection:

A CHESTERFIELD FOR ANY OCCASION
Nothing brings the country together like watching the Springboks around a Saturday afternoon braai, especially during this year’s world cup. Whether you stay in Ladysmith or the Lowveld, rallying behind the national rugby team has become a pastime for many of us. Back our Boys and show your true support with a chesterfield sofa dressed in our signature emerald green leather.

EXTRA SEATING SPACE FOR THE TEAM

Having the entire support team at your home watching the game? Have an extra seat available by adding a wingback or tub chair to your home furnishing. An ottoman is also a wonderful addition as it can double as both seating and a footrest.

RAINBOW NATION

We have such a colourful heritage, after all, we’re not referred to as the rainbow nation for no reason. Bring our rich and colourful heritage into your home with our vast range of different colour leathers to upholster your furniture. From hues of blue to green, yellow to orange and even purple, we are guaranteed to have the colour you require.

CULTURAL DINING

Heritage Day is all about exploring where we come from and food is a major part of our roots. Whether it’s a braai, bredie, umngqusho or bobotie, feasting on some traditional South African dishes is another great way to celebrate your Heritage Day. Create a dining area that embodies your South African values by adding dining chairs from our Born Dining Collection.

As a last thought, use this time to not only celebrate how far we’ve come as a nation, but also to acknowledge how far we still have to go.

Rejoice in what makes us, us!

Happy Heritage Month!

How to clean your FibreGuard Fabric

Cleaning FibreGuard

FibreGuard Stain Resistant Fabric philosophy 

They’re here to make your life as easy as possible, to limit your daily interactions with cleaning products as much as they can. From ketchup and red wine to coffee and ink, FibreGuard fabrics are simply easy to clean.

How to clean FibreGuard Fabrics?

Mostly with water – some stubborn stains will need a bit of household soap. This goes for oil-based stains, like mayonnaise, for example. Read below the step by step guide to clean FibreGuard fabrics.

 

  1. DON’T PANIC

For chunky stains like mud, ketchup, lipstick or silly putty, you’ll need to get a teaspoon. Remove any stain residue with the edge of the teaspoon. Deep breaths. For other stains like pen or coffee, you won’t need to do this. FibreGuard created a series of videos to show you how to remove any kind of stain on our easy-clean fabrics, see below for some videos. 

 

  1. WATER & BLOT

Blot up the stain with water and a paper towel. Do not do the circular motion rub trick because it’ll just rip your paper towel & drive the fibres from it into your fabric. Yuck. Rinse and repeat until you can’t see the stain on the paper towel anymore.

 

  1. WATER & CIRCLES

Apply more water and gently rub with a microfibre cloth. Use soap if necessary. Any soap will do, whatever you have in the house. Now you can do the circular motion rub trick. It’s OK.

 

  1. AIR DRY

This is really important. Don’t use a hairdryer or apply heat to the stain in any way. Just air dry. It’s fine.

Here are some examples of cleaning FibreGuard Fabrics:

Dressing a Chesterfield in collaboration with Home Fabrics

Born Furniture had the amazing experience and honour to collaborate with Home Fabrics SA on a discussion regarding how to dress a chesterfield sofa. Home Fabrics SA is a top design house in South Africa and the main distributor of FibreGuard Fabric. In their latest Home Fabrics Trends Vlog, we discussed the array of options available to you from Home Fabrics and Born Furniture when experimenting with texture, colour and popular trends.

Watch the full Home Fabric Trends Episode here.

Recreate the look by using these beautiful fabrics from Home Fabrics

TOUCHSTONE From FibreGuard

Drawing inspiration from a paired down, classical colour palette that works perfectly with that authentic, raw chesterfield shape, the following collections would work perfectly:

VELVETS

In velvet, Moulin Rouge has two phenomenal designs for this type of application. Deluxe and Lesch, the deep, saturated colours have that timeless appeal, ideal for a Chesterfield sofa.

MIMIC SKINS

An alternative to leather would be Touchstone and there are two designs, in particular, that stand out: Triton and Rex. They are so close to real skin but come with the added benefits of FibreGuard specifications which sets this collection apart.

Twice is a mock suede collection from HF Basics. Coming in 40 000 Martindale rubs with a selection of traditional colours, this it is also completely reversible – offering two colour-ways from one piece of material.

PATTERNS

John Derian’s Picture Book II for Designers Guild would be the inspiration for this feature because, as an artist, he puts together the most beautiful illustrative pictures based predominantly on natural history.

2019 Spring Home Decor Trends

2019 Spring Home Decor Trends 

We’re so excited for this year’s Spring Home Decor Trends! It’s time to get your home ready for the new season, therefore we have put together a list of tried and tested spring home updates. From the expected colours and florals to fresh textiles to fresh coats of paint, here’s everything you should consider as you look to make your home feel anew this season.

 

Bright and Bold

Now is the time to put away all the dark wintery colours. Spring is all about sunny, vibrant colours to reflect new life and freshness. Keep your spring home decor colour palette light and airy with the additions of pale and vibrant hues of blue, green, yellow, orange and pink. Use colourful items to create a hive of happy explosive colour. If you don’t want to go all out you can still use bold colour accessories to brighten your space.

Lighter Textures

Heading into the warmer season there is no need for heavy woollen throws and scatter cushions. Replace your winter furnishings with beautiful patterns and pastels that brings the essence of spring into your home. 

Fresh Flowers

The season for new blossoms is here and no home is complete without fresh-cut flowers. Fill a vase full of energizing spring flowers from daffodils to tulips or even orchids. Not only will it bring the spring feeling into your home, but it will also leave your home smelling beautifully fresh.

Natural Materials

The nature around us is slowly starting to grow and come back to life, embrace this by using natural materials and textures in your home. Use woods, rattan, wicker and other organic materials in your home. Even by using light woody tones in your home will be pleasing to the eye. 

Wanderlust Patterns

Ethnic and tribal-inspired patterns are one of the biggest design trends for 2019. Theses patterns evoke a sense of upbeat, new, cool and wanderlust vibes. From small, symmetrical ethnic prints, to big, bold, impactful patterns, you can choose light, colours or even darker colours if all the brightness of spring home decor trends is getting a bit much for you.

Plant Life

Plants are the epitome of spring – they bring a room to life in a way that other decorative accessories and home furnishings just can’t. Choose plants with light green and yellow foliage to add to the light and lively feel you are trying to achieve with these spring home decor trends 2019. You will see your home will begin to feel like a springtime haven in no time.

Botanical Prints

If the hassle of real-life plants is daunting to you, then botanical prints will be a wonderful solution for you. Botanical prints will add a vibrancy to any room of the house. You can place it as an artwork on your wall or have a scatter cushion with botanical printed fabric.

Reference: Designers Guild

 

Spring is most certainly in the air and you can bring the new season into your home with our Refreshing Spring Collection. This spring we dare you to try something new. Be brave. Be bold. And don’t forget to share your Spring creations with us.

In honour of Women’s Month we have put together a list of home decor must-haves that speaks the language of an empowering woman.

Another sophisticated lady is the Lady Catherine Chesterfield Sofa, dressed in soft white fabric she is sure to make any visitors heart skip a beat.

Every woman knows that a good nights rest is essential to power through your day. Creating a bedroom sanctuary where you can relax is a must! Unwind with a tufted headboard that is upholstered in that plush colour that just gets you in a happy mood. Or lift your feet up with a beautiful ottoman that doubles as a storage unit.

Make your powerful voice heard with an executive leather office chair. The Latvia Office Chair showcases strength, perseverance and passion, not even talking about the Dominica Office Chair’s ambition, determination and vision. Enquire about your power seat today!

Audrey Hepburn once said “elegance is the only beauty that never fades”, in the spirit of these word we have to add these home decor items to add to your homes elegant ambience.

A lovely warming throw to keep you cozy on those chilly nights, especially during the winter season. Casually hang it over a chair or place it in a basket next to the fireplace, and it will make a warming statement.
