La-Z-Boy offers tips to integrate trends from High Point Market into the home

HIGH POINT, N.C., (April 20, 2013) – Design trends can be seen every April at High Point Market, but they can often pose challenges for consumers to integrate them into their home. La-Z-Boy’s design experts are here to offer tips that can easily and affordably transform any room from basic to beautiful.

Emerald City: As 2012’s Pantone Color of the Year, Emerald Green is the perfect color to incorporate into a room with accent pieces such as a beautiful chair, ottoman, pillows, throws, lamp, accessories and more. For a more dramatic feel, consider using the color within a centerpiece such as a sofa. La-Z-Boy’s product line is fully-customizable, so you can find a way to incorporate this bold color at a comfort level that’s right for you.

Mix and Match Textures / Fabrics: This can easily be done by utilizing a variety of fabrics on pivotal furniture and home accessories within any room. Integrate this trend into a living space by choosing one main pattern that can act as the common ground and incorporate solid colored fabrics with texture to add a layered feel to the space. A key component is varying the style and scale to make sure the room does not feel overwhelming.

Wall Décor / Art Grouping: A bare wall is a blank canvas; group together an odd number of wall décor, mirrors, square picture frames and decorative plates for vividly eye-pleasing results that will create an illusion of depth to any room in the house. La-Z-Boy offers a full-line of accessories to help complete this look.

Pairing Antique and Modern Furniture: Simple ways to incorporate this trend include pairing a modern accent pillow with a vintage chair, upholstering a vintage piece of furniture with a contemporary fabric or pairing a vintage table with modern chairs covered in bold fabrics. Bringing the above techniques into a living space will help showcase the independent beauty of each piece.

Embellished Walls: Flat surfaces are not always visually appealing, so look for ways to add dimension. Consider paneling walls with roofing shingles or adding fabric wallpaper. These examples of custom wall coverings will add dramatic character to a dull space.

All of the latest La-Z-Boy furniture will be on display April 20 through April 25 at the La-Z-Boy showroom located in Space 103 of the Furniture Plaza Building in High Point, N.C. The furniture will be available soon at La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries®, La-Z-Boy Comfort Studios® and anywhere genuine La-Z-Boy furniture is sold. More information is available at la-z-boy.com.
