Keeping designs simple to maintain a sophisticated look in your room has always been a necessity. However, for those who are looking to break the mold, incorporating small, quirky ways to add personality to clean looks has always been a must.
Luckily, for all the rule breakers, trim is making a comeback!
A small furniture piece can have the loudest impact in the room, if its accent details are properly placed. Incorporating a basic piece of furniture, like a
cabinet or chair with designs that bring texture in a visual pleasing manner create an element of vibrancy and excitement.
For example, many people have a three-drawer cabinet in their room. But do any of them speak as loud as the Tommy Bahama Kingstown Tortola Chest with
Bellman Handles? Few cabinets have such character and stylish accents as the decorative nail head trim provides. This cabinet doesn’t beckon attention because it is simply a drawer, it demands it with its design.
Trim can come in all shapes and sizes. If you’re looking for a more subtle look, try finding intricate trim designs incorporated in dark woods. The
Casa Vita Russo End Table is a great example, adding the traditional and timeless look of wood furniture with a gold finish trim to highlight the grain of the wood. Its trim adds an attention that is rarely found these days
and one that resembles an 18th and 19th century Italian design. Simple, sophisticated, and eye-catching.
Upholstered headboards are all the rage this summer. Adding the
Monterey Sands Pacific Grove Bed to your room highlights the mixture of classic wood with woven rattan upholstery brought together
with a beautifully intricate nail head trim. It’s a simple piece that adds a different and exciting appeal to an otherwise traditional style.
Trims don’t say much yet do a lot. It just takes one design on one color to add vibrancy to any room.
The Lexington Personal Design Series Customizable Norwood Upholstered Sofa is a perfect example of that. In essence,
it is a single-toned colored sofa. However, the dark trim that is found on the end of the sofa cushions adds a poised touch of elegance into the design.
The sofa perfectly exemplifies why trim, whether small or extremely detailed, is making a comeback. In the simplest of ways, it can make an accent piece, set of couches, or any other furniture stand out. Not to mention when trim is used in
the right manner it can turn a simple cushion or piece of furniture into something more unique and memorable.
So if you want to color outside the lines when it comes to furniture style, then trim is the right way to go. Trim is a clever means to add accented style and personality to one-colored furniture without leaving the realm of sophistication
and class. If you want some assistance figuring out the best kind of trim furniture for your spaces, visit baers.com or any of our local Baer’s
