The Wallace Leather Sofa

Chad is Schneiderman’s Retail Environment and Visual Display Manager. It’s a long name, I know, but he has a big job. He makes sure the atmosphere of each of our 5 stores is a beautiful and cohesive environment that highlights the newest trends and shows off the variety of furniture we carry to its best advantage for you. With his skill and eye, you can really see how our furniture will look in your home. Because of that, we decided to take advantage of his knowledge and create some videos for you to more easily see how you can incorporate furniture into your home.

In this first video, Chad starts with our Wallace Sofa, it is one of our more traditionally styled couches in a rich cigar brown leather with button tufted sides, curved arms, and nailhead trim. In this first video, Chad will show you how to highlight the traditional elements of the Wallace Leather sofa using coffee tables, lamps, wall hangings and rugs. In weeks to come you’ll see further transformations of this beautiful couch. We consider it an investment piece, something that you’ll love for years into the future and we want to show you how you can create different looks while still holding on to your cherished piece of furniture.

Convey it With Color – PURPLE!

The color purple combines the stimulation of red with the calm of blue. It can cause unrest or uneasiness but also represents bravery, royalty, and privilege. Deep or bright purples suggest riches while lighter purples are more romantic and delicate. Use redder purples for a warmer color scheme or the bluer purples to cool down. A deep eggplant purple with neutral tans or beige is an earthy, conservative color combination with a touch of the mystery that purple provides. Pink and purple has a very feminine appeal.

While purple is sophisticated and regal and romantic, it can also be playful and fun, as in the Artsy Craftsy  youth bedroom from Schneiderman’s Furniture below.

Purple can be fun!

Convey it With Color – BLUE!

Continuing our series on color from Schneiderman’s Display team, we discuss BLUE!

Blue is considered the number one favorite color. (Is it your favorite color?)

Blue is calming. A deep royal blue or azure conveys richness and perhaps even a touch of superiority. (True Blue, Blue Blooded, etc.) Navy blue is almost black and is a bit warmer than lighter blues. Combine a light and dark blue to convey trust and truthfulness. Although blue is a year-round color, pastel blues, especially along with pinks and pale yellows, suggest springtime while deep blue is a colder weather color.

Create a conservative but sophisticated look with subtle contrast by combining light and dark shades of blue. Mix the color of blue with green for a natural, watery palette. Add gray for understated elegance. (See our recent High Point Market post for thoughts on gray) Sky blue and robin’s egg blue, especially when combined iwth neutral light brown, tans, or beige are environmentally friendly color combinations. Throw in a dash of blue to cool down a hot red or orange scheme. Grab attention with the contrast of blue and yellow.

Because blue is everyone’s favorite color, there are really few limits when it comes to blue. The huge variety of shades of blue can blend well with a myriad of other colors. Most importantly for blue, HAVE FUN WITH IT!
