Radiant Orchid – 2014 Color of the Year

The entire design world is buzzing with the recent announcement of Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid.  This fuschia shade is a follow-up to the buzz of pastels we saw at this year’s High Point Furniture Market but with some energy and optimism.

So far, most of the discussion has been around the color itself, but at Schneiderman’s, our focus is on how you can incorporate the latest and greatest trends into your home.  We think this is an excellent shade soften the industrial edges that are trending in furniture now. Here are some products, currently at our showrooms, that will bring some radiance to your space.

The Harlequin Magenta Rug will add 2014’s pop of color to your deep espresso or black leather sofa. Using a trending color, pattern or texture in an accessory will refresh and update your living room, great room, family room or even dining room space while still being an easy piece to change in the future.


This floral pillows combines a orchid-like pink with another of this year’s hottest trends – metallics.  Pair with your creamy linen upholstery group or toss onto the master bed to add just a touch of trend to your classic room design.



Radiant Orchid adds a touch of whimsy and romance to this traditional, neutral palette.

As with most trends, there are many ways to work Radiant Orchid into your space.  All the products here are available at Schneiderman’s Furniture in Minnesota (MN) with showrooms around the St. Paul and Minneapolis metro area and now selling at schneidermans.com.

NeoGeo at Home in Minnesota

At Schneiderman’s Furniture, we’re always excited by the latest trends in home design and this year’s furniture market in High Point did not disappoint.  Our buyer’s came back with tales of turquoise and tangerine–and a hot new trend called NeoGeo.

The wow factor of nature has inspired this contemporary trend with geological layering and mineral patterns showing up in home textiles and surfaces.  Stone patterns, wood textures, and wood grain patterns have been extrapolated and redesigned to add warmth to smooth and streamlined modern design.

We’ve already begun to incorporate this trend into our showrooms, with more coming very soon. The mineral gray, grain textured upholstery on this Solaris sofa from Flexsteel embodies this trend.Image


This wrapped canvas has a concentric design and color palette reminiscent of a wood grain or tortoise shell.  Very in keeping with the NeoGeo trend.



We saw even more new trends at High Point.  Stay Tuned!



Glam on a budget!

We all can have problems finishing our rooms. Usually because we blow the budget on the larger furniture pieces – the things that need to last and get the most wear and tear.  That is not necessarily a bad thing!  Sometimes ads give us unreasonable expectations about the value of a quality piece of furniture and we discover the piece we want is a little more than we bargained for.  In reality, sometimes the finishing touches either need some creative funding or need to wait.  But stopping at a new sofa or bed is not always going to give the satisfaction of a new room.  So what’s a girl to do?  Check out this video – great tips on bargain and remainder shopping to finish a space on budget!
