Material and Texture. Texture plays an integral part in Asian style furniture. Surfaces can be smooth and shiny, because wood is either polished to perfection, painted, or lacquered. Surface interest is also created by using materials such as bamboo, paper, silver or gold leaf. Upholstery and rugs run the gamut from silk to jute and straw. This round cocktail table is from Hammary, and it combines some very interesting materials and textures that you find in Asian furniture. The deep dish top has a glass inset highlighted by a field of silver leaf. This is a take on an ancient art technique in which the underside of the glass is painted with an intricate pattern. The faux bamboo base has a soft black finish with a subtle red rub through.
Never overlook sticking with “evergreen” furniture either. While it is nice to stay on top of trends, trends have a tendency to run out or steam (and style) eventually. This could leave you without outdated furniture that may need to be replaced. Instead, it would be a little more prudent to stick with furniture that avoids a radical departure from common styles. Select furniture that coincides with the traffic in your home. In other words, you do not want to select furniture that is over sized for your residence or makes moving around the house difficult. Remember, it is not enough to purchase furniture. You have to do it smartly as well. When you follow this maxim, you will discover your furniture acquisition experiences more rewarding than you ever thought possible.
