St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) June 30, 2006 -–
Not everyone is blessed with a roomy suburban home. In fact, many Americans reside in apartment buildings, urban condos or historic row houses, where space is limited. Smaller spaces can hinder creative home décor. Shopping wisely for multi-purpose furnishings can remedy this dilemma. The new Home Decorators Collection® Autumn 2006 catalog, and the decorating ideas found at HomeDecorators.com, present several clever furniture designs that maximize minimal space.
The Craftsman Three-Piece Cocktail Table Set includes one table with two stools. Similar to nesting tables, the stools tuck underneath the tabletop for convenient out-of-the-way storage. When guests arrive, simply pull out the stools for additional seating. Designed with the clean lines of the Arts and Crafts movement, this set is beautifully handcrafted in durable, warm oak veneer and available in a choice of finish. The base of the coffee table has a handy compartment to store magazines, remote controls or games. At $299 per set with ivory fabric seats (brown leather is available for $30 more), it’s perfect for those on a budget who still desire quality furnishings.
Not your average upholstered storage ottoman, new designs with a reversible tray offer versatility like no other. Just flip the lid to reveal a wood tray that's perfect for snacks or beverages. Lift off the top for extra storage inside. This storage ottoman is a seat, footrest, side table or trunk – the ultimate home accessory. With generous padding and velvety microfiber upholstery in several rich colors, the Soho Storage Ottoman with Reversible Tray offers cushiony support that's soft to the touch. Hidden casters add convenient mobility. The Leather Ottoman with Reversible Tray, in a choice of three deep shades and three shapes, boasts sleek and smooth genuine leather upholstery. Both Soho and Leather models are crafted with durable solid wood frames, so they’re built to last. At prices much less than consumers would expect to pay, it’s a smart idea to purchase several to have around when guests come to call.
The ingenious Mission-Style Secretary Desk looks like a lovely console table when not in use. A great piece of functional furniture, this home office desk has a hinged top that lifts up and a faux-drawer panel that flips down to reveal valuable work space for a laptop computer, bill paying, and other tasks. And it occupies a much smaller area than a regular computer desk, which is most important when space is at a premium. It is beautifully crafted of solid hardwood for years of durable performance. Hand sanding and hand finishing ensure a smooth and satiny surface.
Although not new to Home Decorators Collection, the Stainless Steel Pub Table has its place in a small space. The top tilts up for easy storage, and it's surprisingly lightweight and easy to move. For those homes without a traditional dining area, this pub table can be used in the living room, and then pushed to the wall, or hidden behind a chair or curtain after mealtime. With an appealing brushed aluminum finish, which complements many home decors, and a sturdy construction designed to withstand everyday use, this pub table strikes a functional, attractive note in just about any setting. It’s available in round or square shapes, and in chair, counter or bar heights.
