Must have home decor items for a BORN Woman

A strong woman never leaves home without determination, perseverance, passion, vision and ambition. A woman with all these empowering qualities should have a home that displays her character. 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.

Lady of the house

First and foremost, you are the lady of the house and having a statement piece that compliments your beauty, passion and elegant flair is essential. The Princess Diana Chesterfield Sofa illustrates all that you stand for and adds an elegant ambience to your home. 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.

 

Beauty Rest

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. 

Boss Lady Office

You work hard, put in all the extra effort and you most definitely do not back down from a challenge. You deserve to be in the power seat and be seen as a force to be reckoned with. 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!

We know balancing your personal and work life can sometimes be difficult even for a strong woman like yourself, so have a look at our Tips to balance your life.

Other must-haves

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. Furthermore, adding a few layers with scatter cushions will enhance your warming home. You can play around with textures, patterns and sizes to create an elegant home tailored to your style.

 

Now that you have our list of home decor items that will showcase the beautiful woman you are, have fun shopping and decorating! 

And remember, YOU ARE A STRONG BORN WOMAN!

Blessings,

BORN WINTER ESSENTIALS FOR YOUR HOME

BORN WINTER ESSENTIALS FOR YOUR HOME

When the mercury drops and the wind begins to whistle, leaving the comforts of your home is far from easy. So when you do, rest ashore that you have a plush, cosy space to which you can return, shutting out the cold behind you. Where to begin though when it comes to bracing your home for the winter chill? Our BORN winter style survival guide is filled with suggestions to bring into your interior, transforming it into the ultimate escape from the chilly outdoors.

FIND THAT COZY SEAT
There are plenty of winter decorating ideas to indulge in this season. Start off with finding the perfect seat to snuggle up. A plush Chesterfield sofa or Wingback Chair is sure to provide a cosy relaxing space and add a luxurious essence to your space.

AMP UP YOUR LIGHTING
Winter home decor can be as elaborate or as simple as you wish. If you’re looking for a less onerous idea, consider small touches like bringing in more lamps to your room. Even more appealing, are soft glows of warm colours. Enhance your home with coloured lights and create your own winter wonderland.

ADD LAYERS WITH SCATTERS
Using a few decorative items with winter-themed elements and colours is another subtle way to bring in the season. Scatter Cushions are an effortless way to bring in the winter decor into your home. Cushions will also help you to swiftly build comforting layers in your sitting room, snug and bedrooms. Mix and match different styles to create a plump, cosy display. Colours to use are shades with a warm base like creams, taupe and cable-knit weaves.

WARMING UP WITH BLANKET THROWS
Speaking of cushions, these plush accents are high on the list of winter home essentials. However, you can’t create this list without blankets and throws. Throws and blankets offer texture and much-appreciated additional warmth, especially opulent throws are vital for a winter-ready room. The versatile decor piece can be draped over a bed, seating arrangement or even over a dining chair, they add a layered look to your home interior which adds to the cosy element.

Now that you have our BORN Winter Essentials List you can snuggle up with a good book or film in the comfort of your winter-ready home. You can shop our winter essentials on our online shop and warm up your home.

Have fun decorating your home!

Born Furniture Signature Leather – Colours

Born Furniture Signature Leather Range of Colours

We are proud to announce our very own signature range of leathers. Still, 100% genuine leather skins, just tanned in a different way. The BORN leathers, is a special collection that we have designed with our trusted tannery Hannitan. We took inspiration from the England Chesterfield makers to design the leather to our liking and tailoring. Let’s explore the range:

Born Forest Green

Inspired by nature, particularly the lush green hues of the forest brings us our Born Signature Forest Green leather. This beautiful green leather is associated with balance, growth, vitality and wealth – all this that a genuine leather chesterfield resembles.

The colour Green, in general, is associated with health and growth, think about nature – you see green in all its glory expressing renewal and life. The colour evokes feelings of abundance and a plentiful environment while providing a restful and secure feeling.

You can upholster your furniture in the Forest Green leather to create a space for creativity, productivity and revitalization. Hence, green in your office is a wonderful idea.

Born Beautiful Red

Inspired by all things beautifully red, our Signature Born Beautiful Red. We decided to add red to the colour scheme as it is a colour that has a lot of impact and has a variety of meanings.

The colour red is associated with love, passion, desire, romance, joy, strength, leadership, power, action, vibrance and determination – just to name a few. Having something in your living space that embodies all these aspects will definitely have an impact on anyone in your space.

Red is the colour of passion and drama. It is an attention grabber and is associated with strong emotions such as love and anger. Red is the colour used universally to signify courage, strength and power. Red is stimulating, vibrant and exciting.

Born Oceano Blue

Our Ocean-inspired hue of blue is a delightful sight. The colour blue has a positive effect on the mind and body and when used in your living space it creates a sense of calmness.

Blue is associated with open spaces, freedom, imagination, inspiration and sensitivity. Furthermore, blue also represents depth, trust, loyalty, wisdom and intelligence. Blue, the shades of the sea and the sky, is thought to induce calm and convey serenity and peace.

A feeling of tranquillity is created when shades of blue are added to your living spaces. Therefore, our Signature Blue Leather will be wonderful to use in the bedroom or even the living room.

Born Sunset Brown

Inspired by the African Sunset is our Born Signature Sunset Brown Leather. The colour of the earth emanates a message of stability and foundation. This beautiful colour relates to things that are natural and simple. Brown is reliable and wholesome, it’s a colour of safety and confidence.

The sunset brown leather creates warmth in your living spaces, especially in the colder seasons. Cosiness, comfort and relaxation are also associated with brown. Brown is a stable and grounded colour that is believed to help create a feeling of fitting in and belonging.

A Sunset Brown Leather Chesterfield will warm up your living room and create a space where you can enjoy the heartfelt company of your friends and family.

Born Jet Black

Jet Black is a statement colour of boldness and formality. Black is associated with power, mystery, strength, authority and elegance. This prestigious colour is the embodiment of sophistication and luxury.

The colour black can help create an ambience that increases the sense of potential and possibility. Opulence is showcased through the colour black and is used in interior design to enhance the modernity of the space.

Colour surely has a lot of associations attached to it and when used the colour combinations can embody these various messages in your home.

Caring for your leather sofa

Caring for your leather

It is important to know that products made from natural leathers, like furniture, will age with time. Just like our own skin, it will need moisturising and caring for it to be kept in excellent condition. Due to the importance of taking care of your leather, we have put together these easy steps:

  • Skip the home potions: The first rule of cleaning leather is to avoid DIY remedies. Homemade solutions like using vinegar are best kept for salads, not leather cleaning. The best thing is to avoid applying anything that is not endorsed by the tanneries or your couch supplier.
  • Cleaning materials: Only use a soft microfiber cloth and a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment. Always use a neutral-pH nondetergent soap or a leather cleaner designed for furniture. Furthermore, leather cream/conditioner should also be applied once a month.
  • Cleaning Steps: Here are the steps for cleaning and caring for your leather. (Remember to always spot check first – apply to one area that can’t be seen and see how the leather reacts.)
      1. Start by vacuuming the sofa using the brush attachment.
      2. Add a few drops of the leather cleaner to distilled water to create a cleaning solution. Moisten a microfiber cloth with the solution. Note, make sure not to use a wet cloth but rather a damp cloth.
      3. Test the solution on an area to check for any discolouration from the cleaner.
      4. Wipe the sofa from top to bottom.
      5. Dampen another cloth with plain distilled water and wipe furniture again.
      6. Dry with a clean towel.
      7. Apply leather cream on the couch to ensure long-lasting care.
  • Spills, Spots and Stains: As leather is very sensitive to liquids, a spill should be absorbed and cleaned up as soon as possible to keep it from soaking in and harming the leather.
  • To condition or not? Want to keep your leather sofa soft and supple? After cleaning apply leather cream occasionally on your sofa. We recommend applying cream every 6 months to maintain the leathers natural oils to keep it soft for years.
  • Other Care Tips: Keep your leather furniture out of direct sunlight and heat sources. The heat can cause drying and cracking of the leather.
  • Leather Care Kit: We recommend using our Leather Guard Range. The set consists of Leather Cream, Leather Cleaner, Ink Killer, Microfibre and a Leather Care & Protection Plan Manual.

Why this Leather Care Kit?

  • It prevents future cracking & peeling
  • Protects against UV sun damage
  • Easily removes ink & stains
  • Retains the suppleness & lustre of the leather
  • Helps prevent colour fading
  • Keeps the leather newer for longer
  • It’s easy to use.

You can purchase the Leather Care Kit in-store or on our online shop. Take care of your leather sofa and it will last you a lifetime.

S is for Spring

S is for Spring

From leafy greens to emerald hues… green is the ultimate colour of harmony. We are so thrilled that the powerful green was part of the Pantone Trends list for Spring, with colours like Lime Punch, Sailor Blue and of course our favourite, Ultra Violet. If there is one colour to play with in all its possible shades, right through spring into summer, it would be green.

Allow us to introduce you to our Refreshing Spring Collection. Pedro Calderon de la Barca once said: “Green is the prime colour of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises”. We fully agree as green is truly a colour of calmness, relaxation and renewal. And what better time to renew your home than spring?

The best thing about using green in your spring home interior is that it looks good, is flattering and brings new life to your space. Darker hues paired with metallic accents adds the glossy and opulent finishes your room needs.

Although some of the pieces in our collection might seem unusual or new to you, we want to encourage you to try something new. A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there. The magic happens outside your comfort zone..

So without further adieu our Refreshing Spring Collection:

Zinio Contemporary Chair: Contemporary Chairs are an essential part of any home, and can transform your everyday space from classic to chic in a flash. This season we are spoiling you with our versatile Zinio Chair that can be used in any living space. Whether you are looking to refresh your work space, brighten your bedroom or add extra seating space in your lounge – the Zinio dressed in a spring inspired pattern will be the ultimate finishing touch.

 

Boston Classic Couch:  This Spring the Boston is certainly proving to be the seat of choice. This classic couch is a key piece if you want to play with layering and proportioning and looks great when paired with elegant and delightful scatters. The interesting design takes the piece up a notch and regardless of your space you can create an inviting ambience.

Sheko Rainbow Carpet: Texture is a big thing this season! Textiles take a playful role with lots of embellishments, raw edges and appliqué details – all irresistible to the touch. Therefore, the Sheko Rainbow Carpet with its texture detail and beautiful geometric pattern is undeniably a must have for your home decor this Spring.

Maximus Contemporary Chesterfield: Glam dark woods are on trend this Spring, and what better way to incorporate it in your home than with contemporary furniture. The Maximus Contemporary Chesterfield combines the traditional tufted chesterfield with an exposed wood back. This contemporary Chesterfield provides a new take on modern luxury and is a refreshing sight – perfect for the new season. And upholstered in our Signature Emerald Green Leather the Maximus will surely add to your delightful ambience!

Floral Art Work: As mother nature changes season, she puts the more subdued colours of winter behind her and turns to the bright colours of spring. A true delight from phenomenal artist Koos van der Lende is the beautiful portrait with a lavish red colour to bring the Spring Blossom into your home.

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.
