FURNITURE BUYERS GUIDE: Accent Chairs

Vienna Accent Chair
  An accent chair is a simple and fun way to add character to your space or liven up an empty corner in your home. 
    If you are shopping for an accent chair, here are some things to consider:

Measurement & Size
    Not all chairs are created equal, make sure to measure your space to ensure that your chair fits well into the area with enough room around it to be functional. Consider placing your chair on an angle from the wall to make your layout more interesting. However, remember that this will take up more space. Creating an outline on the floor using masking tape or cardboard can be a great way to visualize your intended furniture piece.  

Material

Accent chairs come in a multitude of materials from leather and fabric to plastic and natural fibers. Remember, an accent chair does not always have to match the rest of your sofas or living room pieces exactly – it’s meant to stand out as an accent piece! However, keeping one element the same, like the leg material between sofa and accent chair will maintain a cohesive looking space.   

Design & Functionality 
    A great looking accent chair becomes even greater when it’s a functional piece in your home. When choosing the right one for you, also consider what it will be used for. A chair for a reading nook should ideally be deep enough that you can casually cozy up for hours while a chair for a formal sitting area should be more structured so it is easy to get in and out from.         Whatever your style or purpose, BLIMS Fine Furniture offers a wide selection of  stylish accent chairs perfect for every home.

5 Reasons Why You Should Invest in Leather Sofas

What is a living room without a good sofa? It is a big investment considering we’ll spend most of our family bondings here. And because it’s not something inexpensive, we want to make sure you get your money’s worth and that is one good reason why you should go for a leather sofa. 

BLIMS Fine Furniture offers a wide range of styles of leather sofas from contemporary, industrial to modern designs. Visit any of our 18 showrooms in Metro Manila, Cavite, Laguna & Davao, Philippines to find the perfect sofa piece for you.

Here are other reasons why leather sofas are a great investment:

  1. Leather sofas are hypoallergenic

Leather couches don’t collect dust mites, pet dander, and other allergens. This is perfect if you have pets or children at home.

  1. Leather sofas are durable

Leather is 4 times more durable than fabric sofas. It is for this reason that a lifespan of 1 leather sofa is equal to the lifespan of 3 fabric sofas. You don’t have to worry about replacing your sofa until the next decade or more.

  1. Leather sofas are actually cost-effective

While fabric sofas are lower priced compared to leather sofas, the lifespan of a leather couch is much longer than a fabric sofa and so you will surely get your money’s worth.

  1. Leather sofas are classics.

There are a certain elegance and attraction this type of sofa exudes. A suggestion is to get Leather sofas that are mostly sold in neutral & natural colors which matches almost any room. If you have decided to change your interior, you can update your look with some new accessories but your sofa can still be the perfect centerpiece of the living room.

Look at these modern & sophisticated leather sofas from BLIMS:

Lorenzo Sectional Sofa
Stockholm 3-Seater Sofa
Tomo 3-Seater Sofa
Giorgio 3-Seater Sofa

 

  1. Leather sofas are Easy to Clean

Leather sofas don’t require frequent visits to a cleaner but mostly light dusting vacuuming and wiping down with a damp cloth. To maintain the beauty of the sofa, periodic moisturizing is also suggested.
