home: trend [ open furniture ]

Having everything on display isn’t everyone’s idea of ease and open furniture certainly makes you busy with tidying but it’s also a great way to keep on top on buying excess clothing or homeware, to make you more organised and aware of what you own but also can allow you to use your everyday possessions as part of your display.

Colour blend your clothing, arrange books by colour or ensure all your nicknacks are similar style and trend to create a feature using your open furniture – either shelving, cabinet or wardrobe.

Glass doors can be a handy compromise to get the look and feel of open furniture but ensure things are kept clean and dust free!

Work with colour on the wall behind your storage. Dark tones together are particularly effective to create a slick interior design look but bright contrasting tones can really make what’s on the shelving stand out.

They say;

Sometimes, you don’t want to hide everything away out of sight. Less a sideboard and more a display cabinet, this fine piece of furniture is glazed on three sides so it’s ideal for showing off and protecting your precious collectables. Crafted from solid oak and high quality oak veneers, and finished with a durable clear lacquer to keep it looking its rustic best, it has a double cupboard and a single cupboard – each with a single shelf – to help you organise things neatly.
