Living Room Color Trends for Fall

fall color trends

Considering a decorating change as cooler weather comes our way? There are some interesting color ideas in the design world right now that are perfect for the living room — whether you want to go formal, contemporary or cozy. Consider some of these suggestions that combine a cheery spring/summer color with a rich autumnal shade to give you a look that will be perfect year round:

  • lettuce green, peach and burgundy
  • golden-yellow, bright blue and grey
  • orchid purple, golden-yellow with black and white
  • coral, burgundy and white, with metallic gold accents
  • lipstick red, light blue and cream, with brass accents
  • deep brown, bright orange and warm yellow

The various “colors of the year” selected by professional color experts are also great for inspiration. For example, Benjamin Moore have named “Guilford Green” it’s official color of 2015. As Benjamin Moore’s Creative Director describes it: “A neutral that’s natural. A silvery green that works with, well, everything. No worries. No second thoughts. Just a brush, dipped in a can, whooshed on a wall, and a whole lot of happily ever after.”

The Pantone Color Institute chose “Marsala” as it’s pick for the defining color of 2015. They describe it as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls.”

For more inspiration, take a look at the color and fabric trends from two of the fantastic upholstered furniture lines we are proud to offer at Rainbow Furniture:
Norwalk Furniture and Braxton Culler.

You can visit our showroom to see pieces from these two manufacturers’ lines as well as view their huge range of fabric samples. Our free design service can help you identify the perfect combinations to reflect your personality, highlight your favorite colors, and give you the look and style you hope to achieve. As your thoughts turn to bringing new energy and style to your home for the upcoming seasons, visit Rainbow Furniture for inspiration, fantastic service, and made in America quality.

Heirloom Furniture: Hand-Me-Downs Your Kids Actually Want

Heirloom Furniture: Beauty and Craftsmanship to Pass On to the Next Generation

Nobody likes a hand me down. Growing up with an older sibling means years of getting their worn clothes and toys. However, finely-crafted, heirloom-quality furniture brings generations together. Furniture of this quality stands up to the tests of time and spans the decades of a family’s shared memories and common experiences. A quality piece of furniture is one hand-me-down everyone begs for.

Here are some of the factors that separate the furniture that is “made for today” versus furniture made “for making memories”:

The Materials

Solid woods — often hardwoods like cherry, oak and walnut — are the material of choice for fine furniture. Rarely, if ever, are faux wood, laminates, plastic, or veneers used. It is not uncommon for the boards and planks to be hand-selected by the craftsmen and carefully kiln-dried or air-dried before being made into furniture.

The Construction

You can see the attention to detail given to the construction of heirloom-quality furniture. The crafting of furniture of this quality still relies on time-honored techniques such as dovetail joints, pegged mortises and tenons, and half-laps. As one craftsman described it: the goal it to “make a piece that will survive as long as it takes for another 100 year old tree to grow [like the one from which the piece was made]”.

Note how the wood planks and pieces are assembled — adjoining planks should have grains running in the opposite direction of each other; as well as the lack of marks from carving and routing. Metal fasteners, screw and glue may be used to join disparate parts, but will be hidden from obvious sight. Curved pieces (chair backs, sofa legs, etc.) should show no cracks or wrinkles.

The Finish

Every piece of heirloom quality furniture has received multiple sandings throughout the process of its construction. This will bring out the beauty of the natural grain and allow the stain to absorb evenly. Proper sanding techniques guarantee that the stain will sink deeply into the wood and retain its beauty for the next generation. High-quality protective surface finishes will be evenly and thoroughly applied to prevent water and other types of damage.

The Craftsmen

The craftspeople who create heirloom-quality furniture are at the heart of the process. Most high-end furniture manufacturers have a small, well-trained workforce dedicated to creating pieces to be enjoyed in other homes and by other families for years to come.

Heirloom Furniture in Fort Wayne

When considering furniture options, please allow our helpful staff at Rainbow Furniture to show you the beautiful, high-quality furniture lines we are so proud to carry in our Fort Wayne furniture showroom. Not only will you find a beautiful piece of furniture to enhance your home, but you will be giving the gift of family memories to the next generation and beyond.

Got Guests? Hidden Gems for Small Spaces

Sofa beds are the perfect solution for those of us who enjoy entertaining family and friends, but don’t have the space (or inclination) to devote an entire room of the house to the occasional hosting of an overnight guest. Sleeper sofas are also great for small spaces when you don’t have extra room for a bed. Sleeper sofas allow the room to be used for any other purpose you need — home office, library, TV viewing — and then quickly transformed into the perfect space for a guest. The construction, mattresses, and opening and closing mechanisms have advanced lightyears beyond the early days of the cumbersome and uncomfortable “hide-a-beds” that some of us may recall. You really can get a good night’s sleep — and own a stylish piece of furniture — on one of today’s quality-crafted sleeper sofas.

The professionals at the Rainbow Furniture Store in Fort Wayne can help you find and design the perfect sofa bed for your style and space. Most of the lines we carry offer customizable features along with choices from hundreds of fabric, leather and wood finish options. We proudly carry a number of fine upholstery lines from quality manufacturers such as:

  • Temple – renowned as one of the best made sofas in the world
  • Best Home Furnishings – an Indiana company specializing in recliners and sofas
  • Comfort Designs – recliners, glider rockers, sofas and in-home theater seats, all made in the USA
  • Norwalk – crafted in Ohio and delivered to your home in 30 days or less, customizable chairs, sectionals, loveseats and sofas

Norwalk has recently released the Monterey sleeper ottoman. The Norwalk sleeper ottoman is perfect for small spaces and can be customized to compliment your existing furniture – choose  your fabric, nail heads, and wood stain. The sleeper ottoman folds out into a comfortable gel-infused twin-size foam mattress! When closed, this fully upholstered ottoman with a striking nail head design is the perfect size to serve as a cocktail table or extra seating — adding style and utility to any room.

We know that our Rainbow Furniture customers want beautiful, well-crafted upholstered pieces that complement the style of their home. For those customers who also seek the added benefits of a sofa sleeper or sleeper ottoman, our showroom is the place to be. Visit today and allow us to assist you in finding stylish furnishings that meet all of your needs.

Get Your Sunroom Ready to Enjoy the Season

sunroom furniture fort wayne

Warmer Days Ahead! Is Your Sunroom Ready?

Whether you call it a “sunroom”, “sun parlor”, “sun porch” or “three-seasons room”, the warming temperatures and increasing hours of sunlight each day are turning our thoughts to these rooms. These transitional spaces provide such a great connection from the comfortable indoors of our homes to the natural outdoor beauty of our yards and gardens.

Because of the sunshine filling the room and the eye-pleasing scenes through the windows, a sunroom is inevitably an inviting and relaxing area of the home. It’s a special space that allows for enjoyment of the sights and sounds of nature without the inconveniences of wind, rain, bugs, or the other less savory elements of the great outdoors. But are you getting all you want from your sunroom? Are you proud to show it off to visitors? Is your family automatically drawn to the space? Do you have comfortable sunroom furniture available to relax in the space and enjoy the sunlight and the view? Does it complement the style of the rest of your home?

At Rainbow Furniture in Fort Wayne, we carry a wide range wicker, rattan, and casual furniture designed with this transitional space in mind. Our design professionals are skilled at identifying the furniture, fabrics, and accessories that will help the space reflect the aesthetics of the rest of your home. We can also help you re-imagine the layout of space for more efficient, comfortable use — or to envision ideas beyond it’s current uses. Some ideas to inspire:

  • a comfortable dining space for casual meals
  • an entertaining area between indoors and out: with serving space, bar-height table and chairs and furniture to house a sound system
  • furnishings to create the perfect space for evening movie time
  • an in-home office space that will let you enjoy the beauty of the outdoors as you work a natural-light-filled library perfect for reading

Don’t forget to add “visit Rainbow Furniture” to your Spring To-Do list. Our wide selection of beautiful, high-quality and customizable furniture including rattan sunroom furniture will meet your every need. And, our design professionals are excited to work with you to help transform the sunroom into everyone’s favorite room in your home.

Wicker & Rattan Furniture from Braxton Culler

sunroom furniture in fort wayne

At Rainbow Furniture we are proud to carry the Braxton Culler  line of wicker, rattan and other distinctive furniture pieces for your home. Need furniture for a lake home or sunroom? Braxton Culler manufacturers high quality, customizable casual furnishings for outdoor patios, sunrooms, living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms. These pieces — ranging from a variety of upholstered pieces including sofas and loveseats to tables, chairs, and accent pieces — are the perfect complement to a relaxed and casual lifestyle. Your home, sunroom, or lake home will become an even more beautiful reflection of your style with the addition of Braxton Culler furnishings.

All of Braxton Culler’s pieces are made in the United States, manufactured at their headquarters in High Point, North Caroline. For over 35 years the company has been renowned for their distinctive wicker and rattan furniture.

What is wicker?

Wicker refers to the process of weaving materials to make furniture (or other items such as baskets). A variety of materials can be used in the process, such as bamboo, reed, willow, and other natural elements like rattan.

What is rattan?

Rattan is a vine that grows in Asian tropical rain forests. Rattan vines can grow hundreds of feet long. It is an extremely strong, yet flexible material. Rattan is used extensively in furniture construction because it rarely breaks or splinters. Rattan is also strikingly attractive.

In addition, rattan is a 100% natural organic material. And a renewable resource — the vines are cut from the plant, but the roots remain so that new vines may grow and continue to be used in the making of fine furniture.

Braxton Culler Furniture in Fort Wayne

We chose to carry the Braxton Culler line because “made in America” is an important value to us at Rainbow Furniture. But, we also are pleased to offer it to our customers because of its high quality construction, beautiful furniture lines, and the wide variety of customizable options. With over 1000 fabric choices and 15 wood finishes, we know that our clients can find the perfect look to accent their home and lifestyle.
