Choosing the right furniture for your home is an exhaustive decision. Entire Oprah shows are devoted to the type of furniture one should put in their homes. A cultural or gender-specific mood is immediately defined from one's choice in fabrics, as well as shape. The type of furniture and its symbolism defines just as much as what a room represents as who the person is who bought it.
From mini chandelier to bathroom vanity designer home television reminds us of how important some designers feel "the right" home furnishings are. A leopard skinned chaise lounge may conger up images of a Hollywood movie starlet and her long cigarette holder, or it may remind you of your aunt Beth and all of her eight cats. A leather chair may be just the thing to sophisticate your living room, but your new puppy may think it's a very large chew toy. Thinking about who is using the furniture is also equally important when choosing a new piece for your home.
My mother, who was searching for the perfect bathroom vanity wanted something unique. Instead of going to a local furniture store, she went antique shopping to find the right bathroom vanity. Everything she looked for was very old, unique for sure and very expensive. Being unique is one thing, but when a bathroom vanity is so old it's falling apart, is another. Instead of buying an expensive, broken bathroom vanity, she bought a gold, mini chandelier and a rare accent lamp.
