When it comes to decorating your home, there is no excuse for settling for second best. Our home must not only be a comfortable space that allows us to work, play, lounge, and rest, but must allow us to welcome guests in a way that inspires both respect and admiration. Our homes must be expertly crafted pieces of art, from color schemes that seem to have floated right off of an artist’s easel, to furniture pieces that portray eloquence and class.
With all of this in mind, it’s critical that you select furniture pieces that will clearly portray the image of wealth, prestige, and power that you have worked so hard to achieve for yourself. Simple folding tables from Ikea, and chairs from some backwoods shop in the rust belt of Ohio will never do.
Interior design is an art, and it takes a subtle change to make a big difference in the look and feel of a room. To give your sanctum the feeling of luxury and extravagance that you desire, the following three pieces are a must.
A Crystal Chandelier
Nothing communicates power and prestige like the timeless look of a crystal chandelier. From TV and movies, the crystal chandelier has long been regarded as an automatic indicator of wealth and luxury, and commands respect whenever it appears.
You should seek to display your chandelier as prominently in your home as possible, and position it so that it is one of the first things your guests see. By making it the sole source of light in that room, you also ensure that it dominates all other aspects of the space, and leaves your guests with no choice but to take notice.
The sparkle and glitz of these timeless pieces says volumes about the power you yield, and will ensure that your guests admire the space you have created.
A High Quality Area Rug
Nothing can communicate power and influence like the exotic. With an area rug of the highest quality, visitors to your home will appreciate you taste in the finest accoutrements of luxury home design.
When you select your rug, you must ensure that it is made with only the highest standards of quality in mind, and that the colors and patterns seem to burst forth off the fabric, reflecting the same level of reverence that you command. Choose patterns based in the middle eastern or oriental traditions, giving your rug the impression of a piece handcrafted in a foreign land, to demonstrate that no distance is too great to keep you from what you want.
A Handmade, Oak Dining Table
There is something about the texture and look of oak that expresses a firmness and steadfastness, and you can channel this same impression to heighten the respect that your visitors and guests will extend to you with an oak table that was built completely by hand.
Of all the rooms in your home your guests will pay attention to, in forming their own impression and evaluation of you, there are none more important than your dining room. The space you establish to eat and talk needs to create only the highest impression of expertise and luxury, and an oak table is the first step in establishing that impression.
When it comes to sending a clear message about your resolution to possessing only the finest, few things you can buy will communicate your intentions as pristinely as an oak dining table, handmade by the finest experts and artisans, and at prices that very few can afford.
