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.born furniture zinio chair

 

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.

Therefore, the Sheko Rainbow Carpet with its texture detail and beautiful geometric pattern is undeniably a must have for your home decor this Spring.

And upholstered in our Signature Emerald Green Leather the Maximus will surely add to your delightful ambience!

Born Furniture Texture

Make an impact with textures

Textures can influence the ambience of your space

What makes a room beautiful? Surely, our thoughts are the colours, furniture and accessories in a space that is perfectly balanced. However, there is a secret that all good designers know that can really take a space to the next level. This is an element without no room is complete, this of course is texture.

 

Texture is all about the look and feel of a surface, this can the feeling of your scatter cushions, throws, rugs, furniture, accessories and even your walls. All the elements in your space has a texture, and this texture influence the ambience of your space. Just think about it when you walk into a room that has a fluffy throw the ambience is immediately cosy or a room with a wooden bench as seating will have an ambience of simplicity and have a rustic feel.

 

Notably, we have some ideas to incorporate different textures in your space. Firstly, create inviting interiors with layered rugs, chenille, ticking fabrics, weathered woods, and dimensional artwork. This will create a comfortable ambience to your space. Or be bold and make an impact with shag rugs, smooth leather, sparse fabrics, light woods, glossy surfaces and shiny metals. In contrast you can go for a more romantic style with hand-hooked rugs, embroidered fabrics, vintage lace, and polished wood surfaces.

 

Similarly, you can use soft fine fabrics and embellished furniture for a feminine ambience. To create a more masculine feel add rustic metals and rich woods to your space. In addition, textures can influence the ambience of the space with regards to how formal or informal it is. Velvet headboards and silky pillows and slipcovers make a space more formal while cotton or denim materials add an everyday comfy ambience. Significantly, texture can encourage mingling. Combining a mix of textures in a concentrated area like in a dining room with different fabric trims of the dining chairs or a blend of glass, ceramic and linen on the table will invite people to come closer, touch and feel the various texture and instantly gather everything together.

 

Naturally, as with anything else when it comes to interior design, they key is to create a balance. Notably, without textured elements a space can feel cold and sterile and with too much textured elements a space can seem overcrowded and to busy. Furthermore, it is really up to you what you want to do with your textured elements. Do what you like as it is the space where you get to be creative. However, if you don’t know where to start have a look at some of our inspirations to use textures in and around your home.

Office Feng Shui by Born Furniture

Office Feng Shui by Born Furniture

Office Feng Shui

Born Furniture introducing Feng Shui as a tool for ideal flow in your office.

Life has sure changed since the early century where taking work home was not heard of. Nor was working until 10pm at the office part of a normal weekday. During the past few decades, technology, cultural sensitivity and a whole host of legalities have transformed the workplace. Beginning with the women’s movement in the 1970s, the workplace has shifted from one dominated by older white males to a more multicultural community. Notably, women, minorities, the handicapped and younger workers now share the workplace at all levels. This has most definitely exposed our ambitions but it has not made it easier. We are juggling many balls and wearing many different masks at home and at the office.

Feng shui for our office is as important as the feng shui for our bedroom. As a matter of fact our office is our second home. In addition we should spend time equipping our offices better by creating a calming and protective atmosphere. You can do so by arranging your personal office or cubicle according to the tenets of Feng Shui to get the most possible work done with the least amount of stress and frustration.

The ideal office is a room of your own with a regular shape preferably a square or rectangle. Furthermore, natural lighting (at least one window), a solid door you can close, and a good position for your desk is also ideal. One of the great advantages of having your own office is that you can usually perform more decorative Feng Shui adjustments than if you work in a cubicle. Of course, not every company can afford, or desires, to put every employee in his or her own individual space. Here are some tips to clear your office space:

Clear Clutter & Organize: One of the most fundamental steps in creating a feng shui office is to get rid of clutter. Clutter has a profound impact on your emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.

Ensure your desk is in the right position: In a feng shui office you want to make sure that you are sitting in the power position. Meaning that you can see the door when seated at your desk. Ideally, you should be able to see as much of the room as possible.

Use appropriate artwork and imagery: When you surround yourself with images and objects that you love and that inspire you, you create a living affirmation for your goals.

In a feng shui office you want to surround yourself with images and objects that keep you inspired, creative and productive. Add flowers, art and beautiful window treatments. Hang pictures, mottos and images that symbolize what you want to accomplish. Furthermore, choose furniture and accessories that speak to you of prosperity, abundance and success.

Incorporate stress relievers: Keep stress and irritability to a minimum by choosing furniture with rounded corners or positioning sharp corners out of traffic flow. Avoid harsh lighting or lots of glare since it can cause irritability and fatigue. Additionally, you can add music, running water or mist with essential oils to keep stress levels to a minimum.

However, these are only guidelines but will be a good start to a better and more creative working space. Please take into consideration that you will need to protect yourself from bad energies around the office too. One of the best ways to protect yourself from negative energy is to make sure you are filled with good energy. Make sure you don’t take on negative energy yourself. We look forward to hearing your comments after you have tried our tips on Office feng Shui.

Born Furniture De Lende

Born Chesterfield paired with a De Lende

Improving your space with a Born Chesterfield and De Lende

Furniture in the right colours and textures are always great to improve your space. However, finding a way to bring the room together can be a time consuming and not always a successful venture. Luckily, we are always on the lookout for something different to ensure opulence in your space. We at Born Furniture suggests a De Lende paired with your Chesterfield. One of De Lende’s fine-art photographs can take your room to the next level.

Born Furniture is proud to announce that we are collaborating with photographer Koos van der Lende to help you uplift your living space into something unusual. De Lende is a leading South African landscape fine art photographer. After completing his studies at the School of Photography in The Hague, Netherlands, he returned to Southern Africa where his passion for photography was born. Having spent the last 29 years devoted to his vision, he has now completely abandoned the studio for the outdoors where he spends most of his year photographing series of limited edition Fine Art Pieces also featured in sought after magazines. De Lende often gets commissioned by the South-African Post Office for their limited edition stamps.

Working from Pretoria, South Africa, he mostly shoots in panoramic format using the film and darkroom processing techniques. Typically, De Lende’s pictures blend natural and artificial lighting sources, with minimal intervention afterwards. The De Lende prints meet international art standards. Furthermore, these artworks are Giclée prints on fine-art paper to achieve superior archival quality.

By pairing a genuine Born furniture chesterfield sofa with a De Lende photograph you create an opulent visual experience in your space. After choosing your Chesterfield sofa, it is time to hand-pick your leather. We suggest a Timberland Rosewood skin or a full grain Whiskey Pull-up leather to compliment the hues in the art piece. If you feel a little more adventurous you can always go for a Midnight Ocean, Self healing Ruby Red or even a Born Forrest Green.

Another extraordinary piece to have in your midst, is De Lende’s coffee table book “Moments of Grace”. Moments of Grace is a majestic collection of De Lende’s photographs, documenting a decade of intimate work to unveil the secret landscapes of Africa. A perfect conversation starter amongst friends that also enjoy the finer things in life.

We have the “Mozambique, Niassa, Aloe, Mawii” De Lende photograph on display in our showroom. For viewing this fine art masterpiece, or if you’d like to talk to us about pairing it with one of our Chesterfield sofa’s. please feel free to contact us for an appointment.

Born Furniture specializes in 100% Genuine leather chesterfield sofas. We have the largest range of Chesterfield sofas in Africa. Our Chesterfield range is manufactured in 100% genuine leather. Alternatively, our range is also available in the finest fabrics. Our frames carry a lifetime guarantee and our signature foam a five-year warranty.  

Born Furniture is excited to announce that we don’t only manufacture luxury furniture but have added interior design to our line of expertise. Our furniture is made to perfection and needs to be displayed in an opulent space. The correct interior design can enhance the mood in your living room. It also compliments your home’s unique personality by bringing out certain characteristics. Interior design plays a key role in the functionality of your building. It is the process of shaping the experience of interior space. When doing interior design, it is necessary to think of the house or business space as a totality. One needs to keep design elements in mind and ensure that these elements complement one another. Let me mention the different elements with a short description.

The different design elements that you have to keep in mind is; balance, rhythm, details and an ascendant focal point in your space. Balance is important for the equal distribution of visual weight in a room. A focal point must be dominant to draw attention. It must also be interesting enough to encourage the viewer to look further. Rhythm is defined as continuity, recurrence or organized movement. Lastly, everything is in the details from the trimming on the lampshade to choosing the correct lighting.

In my opinion, when it comes to design, colour is more important than any other element.  Taking a look at interior design trends, the colour trends at the moment are warm hues of pastel pinks paired with rose gold. A Barlow Chesterfield, master crafted in ballerina pink leather works really well. By adding a rose quartz or two, it can be a good addition to the texture and soulful energy in the room.

Seeing that Serenity blue is the pantone of the year we suggest a sand and blue color combination. Another combination you can try is the Strauss Chesterfield  in Gazelle Taupe Leather against a Royal Blue accent wall. Create an upbeat rhythm with some blue and grey scatter cushions with a voluptuous throw for the cold winter nights.

Born Furniture’s Chesterfield sofa collection are for the individuals with great taste. With so many different colours and types of leathers to choose from, the colour combinations for your space are endless.
