Dovetail Furniture: Why We Love It

For example, the Dovetail Francis arm chair shows just why Dovetail Furniture is so appreciated. This piece combines hand-craftsmanship, great design, and beautiful natural materials. Note how the woodworking complements the upholstery, with shades that are understated but beautiful. This gives a certain versatility, as this chair’s product design allows it to fit in either a living room or dining room. Combining textiles with quality wood can be a tall order for many designers, but not for Dovetail Furniture.

This piece features a hand-carved wood frame and hand-woven rattan. The seat is upholstered in goat hide to add extra texture to your interior design scheme, as well as plenty of comfort! The striped linen pillow is also included, as the perfect finishing touch. Chairs like this one are the pinnacle of handmade furniture, and that’s why furniture retailers like us love it. 

They also offer bar furniture, including bar stools an bar carts. If accent furniture is your taste, they offer accent tables and accent chairs as well! These can be perfect as casual dining sets or as outdoor furniture. 

Here’s another example, with the charming new blue Dovetail Madrill side table. This wonderfully versatile piece features an unusual design adorned with carved appliques.

Madrill Side Table

The side table or small chest is crafted in reclaimed old pine wood with a charming distressed blue finish, as well as lovely brass hardware on the two drawers. Not only is it an eye-catching piece, but it also features a drawer for extra storage space.

Country Farmhouse and other styles

It’s adorable from top to toe! So is this newly crafted Dovetail Furniture Percy bench. If you enjoy French Country Farmhouse style or French Provincial style, this bench might be what you need. Notice its pretty oak wood frame and comfy linen upholstery. This traditional beauty gives a delightfully welcoming look to a living room or foyer. It’s also lovely as a bed bench in your bedroom.Your home office could benefit from their selection of console tables, table lamps, sideboards, and more. A bookcase could be the perfect piece for any reader, or maybe a coffee table or end table is the home furnishing you need. The point is, Dovetail’s selection of home decor is immense.

Dovetail Furniture also makes lighting and home accessories such as mirrors. We love this Dovetail Sia Chandelier because it is full of exotic appeal. If you want a fresh take on a glamorous chandelier, this sumptuous beauty has your name on it. Crafted in polished nickel metal and glass, the Sia chandelier has a seductive double teardrop shape that looks as if it could have come out of a fairytale. Imagine how seductive the Sia chandelier or pendant light will look as it glows over your dining table or in your bedroom at night!

Cyan Design and Scarborough House

Scarborough House Demilune table

We are thrilled to be starting the new year with two new furniture collections in our furniture and home accents online store. Cyan Design and Scarborough House are excellent fits in any home. Each collection is stunning in its own way. The first furniture maker is Scarborough House which creates beautiful antique-inspired furniture. The high-quality pieces are hand-crafted using using age-old techniques.

Scarborough House Demilune tableScarborough House Furniture

This Scarborough House demilune table is a fine example.  Scarborough House is acclaimed for its veneers using the finest crotch mahogany and burls that remain beautiful for years to come. They also make their own brass hardware to create a perfect match for the piece. Combined with their rich finishes on the wood, this attention to detail and great craftsmanship all adds up to heirloom quality furniture.

Scarborough House Rosewood Card TableThis charming rosewood and crotch mahogany flip-top card table looks like it should be in a Jane Austen novel with its decorative brass accents! The satinwood chest of drawers below is another impressive example of Scarborough House style. For more on Scarborough House, we wrote a blog post about some of their best work!

Satinwood Chest of DrawersAs you might guess by the company’s name, it was founded by an Englishman who was a fine furniture designer and maker. You probably remember the song: “Are you going to Scarborough Fair? Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.” The old English ballad refers to a gathering held in the coastal town of Scarborough in the north of England. It was a popular attraction in Medieval times when it took place for more than a month each summer.

Cyan Design Accents

We also started stocking a large collection of lighting and home accents by Cyan Design. They approached us to look at their collection. How could we resist when they create such spectacular pieces, like these amazing Murano style purple Bella Vetro glass chandeliers featured in Elle Decor magazine?

Cyan Designs Bella Vetro ChandelierCyan Design has a very unusual style that (as you can see) is different to Scarborough House but equally stunning. Their pieces are also great value, with surprisingly low price points for their small sculptures, candlesticks and art glass pieces.

Cyan Design Skyros Pendant Chandelier Gold Leaf

Quality Cyan Design Lighting

This is another glamorous light fixture. The gold leaf Skyros chandelier pendant manages to be both classic and contemporary at once, with a traditional chandelier inside a chic globe made of a meshed quatrefoil design.

Cyan Design Ribbon Console Table2Although this Cyan Design ribbon console table looks streamlined and edgy in one way, I can totally see in a French Rococo living room, hallway or bedroom beside your antique French furniture! The black granite top and gold legs give it a classic note and the swirly lines are very ooh-la-la!

I could browse Cyan Design furniture and home accents all day. I hope you enjoy exploring these exceptional pieces too!

Lighting Tips for Your Home

Lighting can have a bigger impact on a room’s mood than even color or furniture. Those latter two attributes may give you a quick impression of a room’s decor — Victorian, mid-century modern, shabby cottage — but lighting can transform any design scheme from cool to warm literally with the flick of a switch. Whether you’re looking to enhance your dining room, living room or other places, it is important for interior designers to have a plan when it comes to lighting. Fortunately, we’ve got some lighting tips.

Here are some lighting tips for creating mood with your home lighting.

Lighting tip #1: Match your lighting styles

When you choose a light fixture for your home, think not only about where you plan to locate it or the style of your decor. Also think about how the fixture will affect the way the light is displayed within the setting. For example, a large crystal chandelier makes a certain statement in its opulence. But it also tends to scatter bright light, which results in dazzling patterns dancing on the ceiling and walls. You can control the level of this effect by hooking your antique or vintage crystal chandelier up to a dimmer switch. These pieces of overhead lighting are a great way to add ambience to a space, with pendant lights that become the focal point of a room.

Stained glass wall sconces can create extraordinarily warm accent lighting. The results depend on the color of the glass. Enclosed sconces that mount flush against the wall tend to push light back against the wall, allowing only a small amount through the glass. This creates a cozy glow and sense of intimacy. Glitzy reproduction candle sconces, on the other hand, can cast a lot of light into a small area. These fixtures can help brighten large spaces. Quality wall lighting, especially blended with a floor lamp or task lighting, is a must. These lighting options add ambient light to your interior design. As long as your ambient lighting matches your other lighting sources, you’ve got the right setup. Other ways to combine your lighting design with your furniture include cabinet lighting or kitchen island lighting.

Use your furniture to enhance your lighting!

Next lighting tip: make good use of your furniture when creating your lighting plan! Quality light on your bedside table or dining table can create an ambiance over meals. Using your furniture to create quality bedroom lighting and bathroom lighting will take your space to the next level.

Pendant fixtures come in an array of styles. Some of them act like sconces in that they push light toward the ceiling. Some direct light downward through the glass shade. These lights make great fixtures for entryways because they provide enough light to illuminate the darkness but also cast warm shadows onto the ceiling for a welcoming touch.

Our next lighting tip is that you always want to include a variety of light sources within your design scheme. These include up lights that cast light up from the floor, floor and table lamps that illuminate their immediate surroundings, and chandeliers or flush-mount ceiling fixtures that cast light downward. By integrating each type of lighting into your design, you’ll be able to set any mood you desire.

Whether you’re looking for accent lights, ceiling lights, pieces that use incandescent light bulbs and much more, is dedicated to helping you find the right lighting. We can help you match your overhead light with natural light, task lights with track lighting. Let us enhance your dining, bed, and living room lighting!
