Having been born into a family of antique dealers, I’ve been surrounded by furniture all my life and have picked up a few tips here and there on choosing the perfect pieces for your home. Most of my childhood was spent scouring continental flea markets, dusty shops and old warehouses for the latest acquisitions. Here, I’ll show you some top tips for getting the best dining tables for your living or dining room.


Never be afraid to haggle

Don’t be scared to negotiate the price of a table you really want. The worst they can say is no. Smaller shops, or a sole trader, are more approachable to the practice than larger chains who might frown upon it. Talk to the manager or a senior member of a sales staff if you’re in a chain or department store and politely ask if they could take a few quid off. They may be able to do it at their discretion. You might be able to get a discount if you’re buying a dining table and set of chairs, too.

It’s always a little sad when your home has lost that ’new house’ feel! You still love it, but you don’t quite love it as much as you did at first. There may be some people who can afford to move house just to get that feeling back but that doesn’t apply to most of us and it’s an awful lot of hassle. These days, with a wide variety of home furniture available at a relatively low cost, it has never been easier to be your own interior designer; you can make your house look new again, with a few simple ideas.

Poke stool is the first furniture piece created by a typography designer, Kyuhyung Cho. The inspiration was to develop furniture for adults but keep a spirit of child like play in the form and function. The stool is simple, bold and playful.
The combination of four round legs and the eight holes in each seat create a stackable stool with a graphical approach. The stools poke one another to build up a stack, as the four legs pass through the holes of the other seat. The twist of each stool added creates a rhythm as the stack grows higher. The addition of the fourth stool establishes a new layer with a different tempo. The composition of different colours and variations to the rhythm lead us create our own structure, like a geometric sculpture.
The Poke is made in Finnish natural birch and oak. The stool is finished with a hard wearing lacquer to create a solid and smooth surface to make stacking and unstacking work effortlessly.















Design Studio IL HOON ROH will present the first module of the Ramus series M1 (“Ramus M1”) to the public for the first time at the Salone Satellite 2013. “Ramus”, which means “tree branch” in Latin, originated from an idea that was first introduced in D Light at the Salone Satellite in 2011.

Today when starting a business, the young entrepreneur faces the following trend: current estate market saturation, where the m² values costs unaffordable prices and finding a central location available is almost impossible. This, combined with the fact that at this early stage the cash flow for investment is small, ended up invalidating the beginning of many companies and makes a greater number of professionals to act as “freelancers”, working in improvised spaces and often not functional ones.

Daybeds are popular and always are in demand as they are functional furniture which can function both as a sofa as well as a bed. It has storage space underneath like a drawer or it can hold an extra bed as a trundle option which can be pulled out. Especially as kids’ room furniture, daybeds are ideal – used as sofas in daytime and as beds at night time.
Daybeds look exactly like sofas or chaise loungers but with additional features which can be optional. When the home is small sized and no extra room is available as guest room, daybeds can become the handiest option to accommodate an overnight guest right in the living room or sometimes in the child’s room.
Daybeds can be made of metal, wood or wicker. They can be a combination of wood and metal – with metal frame for supporting and wood base over which the upholstery is fixed. Cane, bamboo frames or metal frames with wicker weaving for sides and seats and filled with foam and upholstered over with choice fabrics are another option you can often find.
The traditional daybeds are mostly metal based. Metal daybeds resemble beds more and wooden daybeds look more like sofas and chaise lounges. The vast range of styles in which metal beds are available makes your choice easier to find something to go with your particular home style.
Minimalist, contemporary styles are also plenty available to go with small apartments. Sleigh style daybeds, Victorian and Mission style daybed are also other choices. Low hung daybeds almost always are with underneath storage – which can be a trundle bed with castors and which can be a separate bed by itself. Sometimes a pop-up trundle can make the day bed into a double bed that can accommodated two adults easily.
Here you can see some beautiful and functional daybeds in colorful upholstery from the renowned Italian manufacturers Twils. You can see wide daybeds that are single bed size with storage option under – to pull out a trundle or a futon bed. With single side arm support or with double side arm support, these are with comfortable and deep mattresses upholstered very elegantly.
Look how compactly the pull-out trundles look completely hidden under the daybed but with castor options to be pulled out when an extra bed is needed. The extremely lively looking colorful upholstery and cushions make the room look bright and very beautiful.
