Multi-Use Furniture

The way we live today is more complex than even 10 years ago.  Multi-use furniture is getting more innovative than ever in 2009.

Check out Ty Pennington’s collection at Howard Miller launched at High Point market.  The line has some great features:  storing drawers in upholstered beds, dog leashes in cabinetry, hidden desks as part of a chest, the list goes on an on.

Also, a great color tip from Ty.  “Color is like a volume knob.  You don’t always want your music to be on 11.  Sometimes you want to tone it down…”  Balance with neutrals, and use pops of color for personality.  Don’t turn up the volume so much or you will grow tired of it quickly.
