Grey Furniture – 2019’s hottest trend

It’s official, grey is the new beige!

But is this just another passing trend or is it here to stay?

We can’t really know for sure, but what we do know is that grey furniture is as beautiful as any other interior design trend that has come about in recent years.

And for that reason, we’re going to pin this one as a trend you’re going to want to get in on, joining the rest of the experts and professionals in the industry.

This is more apparent if you love cool and calm colours in your home that allow you to create a relaxing atmosphere whilst not sacrificing much in the way of practical design or style.

Grey bedroom ideas

We’ll start in the most thought of place room in any home; the bedroom!

Grey bedroom furniture can come in all shapes and sizes, typically items like grey oak furniture usually do the best when it comes to styling and adding practicalness to your home. Grey bedrooms also include grey bedding to allow the colouring of the room to stay consistent, even with the focal point piece - which is no surprise, your bed.

Grey rooms don’t only have to feature grey colours, that would be absolutely ludicrous since no rooms look good with just one colour being featured - it is important to feature other accent colours like yellow, reds or even blues to help make it easier on the eyes and not to overuse the colour...let's talk more about this.

Not just grey

It is important to understand that you can match in with other colours, perhaps having a grey and rose gold bedroom to show your more light and relaxed feel intertwined with a more bolder and eye-catching look; which can be great if you’re looking to add grey bedroom furniture sets with rose gold accent pieces.

Alternatively, you could feature a light grey bedroom furniture or even a dark grey bedroom furniture in your personal haven; perhaps mixing in the styles of grey together alongside something like white to get a grey white bedroom that constantly features a calm and welcoming atmosphere at no cost of being overwhelming.

Other great matching colours can be things like;

  • Purples
  • Reds
  • Silvers 
  • Navy blues
  • Yellows

The list just goes on, grey has almost become the new white or black; in the sense that you can match it with almost anything.

More than one style

Grey oak bedroom furniture usually gets pinned with the whole modern style and we’re unsure why this is. Perhaps it's something to do with today's market or just the stereotype around colours like grey and white;

Regardless, we are here to tell you that grey works with almost any style of furniture

Whether you’re looking to add modern grey bedroom furniture in the style of grey oak bedroom furniture which can replace your current decor or if you’re looking to add grey shabby chic furniture such as a grey shabby chic mirror - you can be reassured this grey coloured trend will tick all the boxes for your interior design.

On top of that, you can even look to add french grey furniture to your light grey room which will give you an expensive, elegant, yet calm feel to your interior.

Be sure to add accent colours

One of the most popular styles of grey bedroom furniture sets are ones that feature an accent colour like yellow.

The reason that grey and yellow bedrooms are so popular is that each colour features such opposite characteristics that they end up working so well together. Does that mean yellow decor is back in?

Absolutely not.

But does it mean it can work with this new great interior design trend?

Most certainly.

You could even do things like adding grey bedroom walls to a grey and red bedroom, this way you can simply add accent colours to get your desired look.

A pink grey bedroom is also up there with some of the odder but eye-catching looks you can pull off with grey furniture.

Grey and yellow bedroom accent

Finally, a cost-efficient decor trend

Keeping up with design trends can be annoying, for both you and your wallet.

Thankfully, with the grey wood bedroom furniture, you could most probably be able to get away with turning your current oak furniture into grey painted oak furniture.

Although this is not ideal since you may not do a very good job and you would make a mess of your intended grey bedroom designs and ruin already perfectly good furniture.

Grey painted bedroom furniture can be a tricky one to pull off, so you should probably leave furniture designs like that one up us, the expert; HomesDirect365.

The way you would go about this is by adding grey wood bedroom furniture to a primarily grey themed bedroom and then you would add grey pink bedroom decor in the style of accent pieces like photo frames and wall mirrors to help achieve the desired look.

Grey bedroom inspiration - some of our favourite pieces

Hopefully, by now, we’ve got you thinking about what sort of bedroom design you’re going to want to end up with. Whether you’re going with one of our suggested modern grey bedroom ideas like rose gold and grey bedroom or a grey and yellow room, you’re going to want to add pieces that can give you this desired look.

This is where we can help…

The following are some of our favourite grey bedroom set pieces that can give you your desired look.

Grey Bedroom Wardrobes

Alongside a modern grey bed, grey bedroom wardrobes are also a focal point piece if you choose the right one.

Some wardrobes can look overwhelming in a small grey bedroom, so we’d recommend opting for a single one if that is the case.

Other than that, you can’t go wrong with adding a large wardrobe to your grey and wood bedroom if you seek to get the grey interior trend everyone can’t seem to stop talking about.

Grey chest of drawers

For storage and for looks, adding a shabby chic grey chest of drawers to your bedroom is another great way of completing the look you desire. 

And because of the adding tabletop space, you can also use it as a place to add your accent colours like the yellows, whites and even blues, which we discussed a little earlier.

Here are some of our favourite chests that we think will get you the look you need:

And lastly, adding one of our oak grey beds to your home will give you a focal point piece that is going to be able to further accentuate the grey colours and any other accent colours you may already feature.

There are quite a few choices you could go with, depending on the style of your bedroom and the rest of the home;

Whichever grey painted bed you choose, it will more than certainly give you the look you have been seeking; consequently, it is probably the most important piece in your room if you’re wanting to pull off this look.

Grey living room ideas

Continuing on from the bedroom we have arguably the second most important room in the home; the living room.

This is another great place for you to express your grey living room ideas throughout. Since they're plenty of colours that go with grey, there will be no shortage of ideas in terms of both the grey decor and grey furniture which you can feature.

Just like a bedroom; not just grey

Just like we discussed in the bedroom, it is important to know that you don’t just have to feature greys of all shades to achieve the hottest design trend of 2019; you are able to also feature accent colours like reds and blue to get the desired look whilst still having a space that is calming and relaxing.

There are plenty of modern colours schemes for living room, some of these colours schemes for living rooms consist of;

  • A grey and brown living room
  • Blue and Grey living room
  • And even a grey and cream living room

These are amongst the ‘tame’ range, you could go for pinks and purples if you’re wanting more of a bold look.

Helping to add to the grey style, you can also add accent pieces like grey wall art to be placed on grey walls to help accentuate this particular look.

Alternatively, if you don't want to convert your living room colours to only featuring grey and another accent colour, having something like a grey feature wall will allow you to set a focal point in your room - this is beneficial if you want to complement some grey furniture you have picked up from HomesDirect365.

Don’t forget about the dining room

Moving on from grey living rooms, one of the areas of the home we’d finally like to mention is the dining room. A place where we can spend a lot of our time with friends and family but one we necessarily don’t think of decorating immediately; lounge and bedrooms usually come before this.

The dining/kitchen area can feature many different colours, this is down to the drawers and worktops which may already be in place as well as the electronic applications that you have previously added.

Because of this, mainly due to the preinstalled drawers - it can be hard to get the complete grey look you seek.

So in this case, we’d recommend doing one of the things we’ve mentioned previously and that is to blend the grey in with another colour such as white to make up a white and grey dining set for instance.

Alternatively, you could feature a white table and grey chairs so that you can add more focused look to this room, ideally you’re wanting to match the whites with other whites in the room, say the walls or ornaments.

Grey dining room inspiration

Just like we’ve done with the previous rooms, we’d like to point out our favourite grey furniture and decor pieces so that you can get that grey look you have always wanted.

Grey dining room table

Adding a modern grey dining room table to your dining area can be a great way of adding a focal point piece to the interior. To further work on this you could make up a grey dining table set when combining grey table and chairs.

Grey dining chairs

To put with your grey dining room chair, grey dining room chairs can help to further emphasise the feel you’re going for. However they are not necessary to complete the grey look; if you’ve already got a grey dining table in place, they can make for a great addition nonetheless.

Whether it's in the limelight for long or its just a passing trend, there is no denying that furniture featuring beautiful greys and other accent colours are a game-changer when it comes to redesigns and rethinking how your home should look, from personal haven to the communal area that is your lounge or dining room.

Cowhide Furniture – Have You Got It In Your Home Yet?

Redecorating a dwelling can be a highly enjoyable activity for virtually anyone, especially if you’re looking to get a new look with something like cowhide leather furniture. 

However, it is often a daunting task to think of unique ways to add a new touch to your outdated decor without having to completely redecorate each room and every room. 

If you are searching for something genuinely unusual, but do not want to entirely redesign your rooms or complete major renovations, cowhide leather decor in the style of cowhide furniture is something you should definitely consider.

Furniture of this kind, such as leather cowhide rugs and leather and cowhide chairs provide the perfect avenue through which to infuse your home with a remarkable flair that your friends and family will lack in their home. This is because the novel designs and patterns of such pieces quickly breathe new life into your home for a cost-effective price. 

Durable, practical and beautiful, thick cowhide leather can easily transform the interior of your home into a fashionable haven, making you the envy of all your friends, family and neighbours.

 

Cowhide Armchair

HomesDirect365's Cowhide Armchairs

 

Choose From Many Impressive Decorating Options

Each piece of furniture which uses cowhide leather material is typically unique in its own way. This is what gives you the option of placing such items in as many areas of your dwelling as you desire without the patterns and themes ever becoming repetitious. 

For instance, you can opt for a leather cowhide rug in brown and white shades and patterns in one room, and then use a set of cowhide leather chairs which feature a completely different colour in another room.

Complementing that with a cowhide leather rug, you can start to see just how durable this unique furniture is.

Cowhide is also a leading choice for those in search of mesmerizing accent pieces which uses soft cowhide leather and napa cowhide leather to achieve this.

For example, a bold patterned cowhide leather fabric accessory can be used to create a striking contrast with other colours or patterns, like goatskin leather (we’ll get more into this later) in a specific area of your dwelling.

Even the addition of just one cowhide upholstery leather piece or accent item can immediately breathe new life into an otherwise drab room in your home. 

Essentially all cowhide items, like a leather and cowhide sofa, make a terrific conversation piece as well, especially as no two items are completely alike - even more if its made from naked leather, which is cowhide taken from the animal and used as is in the creation of the furniture animal.

 

Superior Texture

A favourite feature among consumers worldwide regarding cowhide is its soft and sumptuous texture. The lush surface of cowhide is something with which synthetic fabrics simply cannot compete. This is because such materials are man made, as opposed to cowhide itself, which is of course natural. 

Whether you’re investing in a set of patchwork cowhide leather rugs for your bedroom, a cowhide storage box for your living room, or a new cowhide ottoman, luxury is more than certainly at your fingertips when you opt for cowhide furnishings. 

A marvelous way to surround yourself with elegance, semi-aniline cowhide leather offers serious competition to other furniture on today’s market.

Blends Well With Any Interior Design

In addition, whether your home’s interior design is rustic, traditional, modern or contemporary, aniline cowhide leather blends flawlessly with virtually any decor.

This is because such furniture is technically in a class by itself, and therefore is not distinctly linked to any particular interior design, even if you're creating a french themed home. 

For this reason, unlike other options, cowhide patterns can be added to any room, whether you plan to change the entire theme of the area or simply add a few striking pieces. 

Thus, regardless of how you choose to decorate or how often you change the overall interior design of a room, furniture pieces made with cowhide, like leather cowhide sofa are always appropriate.

Cowhide Also Has Practical features

It is easy to see that cowhide furniture is a lovely and timeless option for almost any home. 

However, authentic cowhide also offers practical qualities as well, which is a fact that many consumers are pleasantly surprised to discover. These qualities include cowhide's outstanding durability. 

This is why, in addition to its appealing look, furniture made from cowhide such as a cowhide bench or cowhide storage bench can be the perfect storage solution for your home. This is due, in part, to the fact that such furnishings do not have to be replaced as often as pieces made from synthetic materials and fabrics. 

Rather, they retain their attractive appearance even when used on a continuous basis. This means you are guaranteed years of enjoyment from all your semi aniline cowhide leather furniture.

Additionally, furniture of this kind is not difficult to clean and care for, as it is far more stain-resistant than furnishings manufactured from synthetic materials. 

You can efficiently remove stains and spills from the hearty hair-on-hide-surface of cowhide, which ensures that all your new furniture pieces will maintain a beautiful appearance for many years to come.

Goatskin - A Cowhide Alternative

I’ll admit, cowhide isn't for everyone. Sometimes having such a fabulous material in your home can overwhelm the rest of your furniture, which for many interior styles can be a big nono.

However, there is another material that can be used as an alternative to cowhide, it comes with its own benefits too; elegantly made for any decorative home, something like a goatskin rug can add the style you have always been missing.

Goatskin leather features a lighter look than its cowhide counterpart, which can be useful if you feature lighter shades in the home.

Leather suppliers find that animal rug like goat leather are amongst their most popular pieces since typically the goat fur is a lot smaller than cows; for obvious reasons - allowing them to work beautifully as a smaller addition to the home like accent pieces rather than focal point additions.

If you’re now unsure of what it is you should be adding to your home, goatskin or cowhide; then keep on reading - I’m going to compare the two just for you.

Goatskin Leather vs Cowhide

It all comes down to what you’re using the leather for; but for this comparison, we’ll talk about furniture since it would be unfair to compare them on things we really don’t care about.

Goat skin is just as strong as cowhide, making either choice for a goatskin rug or a cow rug hard to choose from; since there are no advantages - you’ll be more than happy to know the only choice you have to make is based on the way it looks rather than how its going to hold up.

Although, you'll find that comparing something like a cow skin rug and a goat skin rugs together that there is only one real difference; goatskin rugs tend to be lighter and cheaper.

This difference is more noticeable when we start to talk about other furniture pieces such as goatskin stools and goatskin benches - as this is where the weight will matter if you’re wanting to move the stool around the home for various events.

On top of this, goat skin is also smoother - depending on the tanning process but typically this would be true.

Okay, let’s summarize here;

  • Goat hide is cheaper than cowhide
  • Goat leather is lighter than cowhide
  • Goat leather is also smoother (depending on the tanning process)

So, it seems like you should go with a goatskin themed furniture rather than cowhide, right?

Well, it can look like that from this comparison however the thing with leathers is that you’re looking for the right look with the right pattern and sometimes a darker, larger more prominent pattern may be better for your home; cowhide would be a no brainer in this situation.

 

Goatskin Bench

Summary

Ultimately, regardless of your individual taste and budget, the perfect cowhide furniture pieces can be found to suit your preferences and if you’re looking for a cheaper and softer alternative that features more light colours; goatskin will be right up your street.

Interest Free Credit / Finance for Luxury Furniture

With Interest Free Credit You Can Own the Luxury Furniture You Dreamed of Today!

 

Buying furniture is an exciting time; you have a new home and you want to put your own signature on it. Choosing the right furniture is a huge part of this, as it will set the tone and character of your house for years to come. Furniture can be a big investment, especially if you want to add some luxury furniture pieces to your rooms. Investing in good quality furniture is a sensible step as it can last for twenty years or more, and still look brand new.

However, it can be expensive, especially if it is well crafted bespoke or exclusive furniture. Not many people can afford to buy a luxurious antique French bedroom set with cash, but don’t worry, there are so many finance options available today and there is one to suit you.

Many banks, stores and online shops offer interest free credit for purchases over a certain amount. If you can get an interest free loan that’s the best way to go as you will not be forking out hefty interest charges.

Interest free credit is available in different forms, it’s important to understand the differences and find the right type for you.

Interest free credit cards

Many banks offer an interest free credit card for a fixed period, the idea is to tempt you into signing up with that particular lender and staying with them once the interest free period is over. After this period an interest fee will be charged on any unpaid credit. However, this type of card helps you finance luxury furniture over a number of months or even years.

Balance Transfers

Many lenders will offer you an interest free period on a new credit card if you transfer an old debit balance over to them, but once again if you have an outstanding balance when the interest free period is over you will be charged interest.

 

Bank loan

It’s worth checking in with your bank to see if they will give you a loan. It’s unlikely to be zero % interest but it may be much lower than a credit card or other finance type. It may be difficult to finance furniture on a bank loan, unless you are buying quite a large amount for home improvement.

Layaway

This is an excellent type of zero % finance, however as furniture is a large item most stores will not be able to hold it for you until you have paid for it. You may also have to pay a deposit and if you decide not to purchase there may be cancellation fees.

 

In Store Credit

There are more and more retailers offering zero percent purchase plans today, especially luxury furniture stores. This is a type of interest free credit over a set period, usually around three to four years. This type of credit offers the customer a fixed number of payments, after which the balance will have been paid in full. There is no danger of still owing a large balance when the term is up, as you cannot add more ‘spending’ to this type of plan.

This is definitely a good option if you just want to borrow money to finance the purchase of an elegant bed set or bespoke sofa. There will be a contract to fill in and sign, and you must make sure you read this and understand it. By taking out finance you are borrowing money that you promise to pay back. If you miss a payment there may be penalties.

Many online retailers have very handy little finance calculators so you can work out how much you’ll pay monthly.

How does it work?

If you decide to finance new furniture you will have to apply for the interest free credit in store, online or on the phone. The application for payment plans are usually very straightforward, but will require some details such as your name, address and employment. Some retailers require more information than others. These details are then sent to the credit partner who will decide whether to issue the finance or not.

There are a few retailers who are happy to give you the finance with no credit check; you would need to ask individual stores about this option. Online stores have easy finance application forms with e-signatures so you do not have to travel anywhere. Many stores offer this as low cost way to finance furniture with zero deposit from the customer.

Signing up for interest free credit to buy that wonderful furniture may be a great way to afford something special for your home, but make sure you read all the information and be sure you can afford to pay back the loan each month.

Once you are sure the payment plan is right for you, go out and chose the amazing furniture you deserve and enjoy it to the full.
