“Making Home and Family Number One” with the Florence Collection by Donny Osmond

Donny and Debbie Osmond are the classic “family-values” example to follow. Being the celebrity from the very childhood, Donny is closer to the masses all the time since he became a teen idol. However, the family and home are always playing the major part in the life of the couple. The milestone of the values comes usually from the family you grow in, and this is about Donny – he’s the one of the big family of nine children. Together with Debbie, they have already brought up five kids and several grandchildren!

Life-loving Donny has time for everything, and the vigor brought him to collaboration with the Coaster Furniture to create the furniture collections inspired by the key value – family.

We, the Furniture Pick team, would like to take you on the trip to Florence this Saturday, while introducing similarly-named collection by Donny Osmond Home.

Inspired by Vintage British classical design with grand scale and beautiful architectural columns and matching details, the bedroom set makes your major bedroom a cozy divine place to relax. You are welcome to complete it with the few furniture pieces to make it a complete style: nightstands, vanity desk with the chair, dresser or chest.  Florence Upholstered Panel Bedroom Set by Donny Osmond by Coaster Furniture.jpg

Fully loaded and designed to create a professional atmosphere for your work space. Its vintage rustic finish and architectural design details bring elegance and warmth to your home.

While creating the collections, Osmond family tries to find the style that appeals to everyone, no matter whether it is the city or country home. Debbie always searches for the modern trends before getting inspiration, keeps finger on the pulse. Donny says that he knows that everybody’s tastes are different, so they try to keep the style simple and neutral in colors as possible, for it to fit in many different places and give many options to make accents with decoration. Still, the high quality matches the affordability, which is of great importance.

What You Really Need To Know About Queens.. and Their Beds!

Let us start today with going back in history. Once upon a time… Well.., not that long, we will cut it short! Have you ever thought of the names for the bed sizes? We bet that if someone is asked to give ideas on the etymology of the names for King and Queen beds they will likely say that bigger beds were for the Kings and smaller for the Queens to sleep in. Not that easy! So, few lines from history for you.

The first bed, familiar to the one we sleep in, appeared during the times of Roman Empire. Before those times, beds were constructed of straw, leaves or animal skins spread on the ground. Further beds were becoming bigger and more decorated during the times of Renaissance and Louis XIV. But Kings & Queens used to sleep in smaller beds than we do now, because the smaller the bed – the easier it is to preserve body heat. Don’t forget, they used to have the fireplace only to keep them warm. Even in 1940s Americans used to sleep on twin or double beds, just before the mattress industry introduced the names for the bigger mattresses bringing more comfort to sleeping experience – and here it comes with the names for the beds accordingly!

Speaking of queen-size beds, we have to confess that size is not the only one thing you have to know about this type of bed. And we are here to give you a short guidance on the subject:

  1. Dimension: Standard Queen beds are 80 inches long by 60 inches wide. Which is exactly the size of the beds introduced by Simmons Company in 1958, calling it in press a bed that “fits for queens”.

  2. Other sizes of Queen beds: Yes, they do come in few more sizes!

  • California Queen or often called the Queen XL or extra long – comes with 4 inches extra to the length instead of the standard 80 inches.
  • Olympic Queen, also known as expanded queen, is 6 inches wider, with the final dimensions of 66×80.
  • Split Queen has the same dimensions as the standard one, but the mattress is split into two separate ones, each 30×80. Also named super queen.

  1. Mattresses depth varies from 9 to 16+ inches, so you have to keep it in mind when choosing the right bed and the good mattress to fit. Sometimes manufacturers offer pockets that are 22 inches deep, making it easy to keep sheets in place.

  2. By the way, speaking of the sheets! Most queen sheet sets come for the standard queen-size beds, and no more than 15 inches deep, you may face difficulties when finding the right size bed sheets for Olympic and California Queens. But, no worries, if you are looking for it, you will definitely find the correct size, as there are even some companies that manufacture queen-sheets with deep pockets for the mattresses up to 22 inches.

Go Glam: Mirrored & Metallic Decor

All that glitters comes first to mind when thinking of glamour and chic. This week Furniture Pick gives ideas on the glam home décor.

Today we will find a clue for the top questions which may occur when “going glam”:
Give general ‘rules and regulations’ on the trend
How to make it in style and with taste, but not to go too far and overwhelm it
Spotlight few impressive furniture pieces that might fall into your ‘glamorous’ eye

Rules and Regulations

What color is typically glam? Typical glamorous tones are white, black, gray, jewel, cream, silver/gold tones, brushed platinum and all that matches the frames

What kind of accents can be used to complete the style? We recommend to use the light-catching materials like mirrors, metallic, crystals and lacquer to add shimmer to your glam. Do not forget about the chandeliers, scones and signature table lamps in style as accents.

What furniture and shapes belong to the glam design? Upholstery, metal, sculptural lines, old Hollywood era and Art Deco style, with special attention to details and iconic elements; elegance, mirrored and metallic décor, geometric shapes and patterns are in trend nowadays for glam.

Glam Shine

Mirrors are the heart of the glam! Don’t be afraid to pick them in the furniture design, but yet be careful not to overwhelm, because too many in one spot can make the whole look inelegant. Use metallic as much as you can though! With more metallic you can’t spoil a good glam! Place mirrored and metallic elements in a spot where the lights are reflected to give the place its brilliant glory.

Iconic Samples

Bring out dimension with silver toned color and subtle glazing effects. Graceful curves and mirrored framing elements will play their signature role in luxe glam home décor by Ashley Furniture.
