Hallway is the first thing visitors see when they enter a home and the last when they exit. Yet, in terms of design, it is often neglected, and even forgotten part of a house. Yes, its main purpose is storing shoes, coats and other accessories (such as umbrellas, rain coats, etc.) but even storing can be stylish and fun. A cabinet with hangers or a storage ottoman (which you can also use as a chair), are just some hallway furniture pieces that perfectly combine functionality and fashion.
They say the fondest memories are made when gathered around the dining table. All the family small talks, wine sipping, mouth watering food tasting, sharing how your day went, laughing and simply enjoying each other’s company, is a bliss on its own. Ah, the simple delights of the comfort zone. And since most housewives care much about what they choose to cook for dinner, how everything is served, the kind of dining plates they serve the food in, the comfort of the chairs and of course, the look of the dining room table, it is more than important to set the right ambiance for the ultimate enjoyment. After all, it is the little things in life that make it meaningful. And since creating a dining room where you’ll love to wine and dine starts with choosing the perfect dining room table, let’s help you figure out which style is best for your kind of personality.
If you want your home to be a reflection of your personality, get the things you love. Though it sounds that simple, often times people forget to actually consider this but rather buy whatever is declared as the current style instead. This is the recipe for getting something you don’t enjoy, as much as you would when you pick clothes that don’t exactly fit in with the rest of your wardrobe. In this regard, picking the right furniture is similar to picking the right clothing. Every piece of furniture is telling its own story and the way you combine all pieces is like matching different stories, seeing whether they complete each other or not to create a bigger outcome. The ending result is what matters, that’s what makes the decorating experience rewarding because you get to live in the surroundings you organise.
I could never understand why some people never choose to spoil themselves every now and then, even when there is nothing standing in their way. I mean really, why wouldn’t we want to enjoy life’s simplest and sweetest offerings? Why wouldn’t we feel the need to reward ourselves for constantly trying and pushing forward? It is perfectly normal to wish for a carefree day, a day filled with nothing but comfort, relaxation, and small earthly pleasures in the form of delicious food. I don’t know about you, but such days are my own personal life-savers, for they keep me sane.
Maybe you’re not sitting in your desk the entire time while at work, or maybe you do. Whichever it is, you’ll agree with me that sitting for long hours is simply not good from all kinds of aspects. It’s boring, it’s hard and numbing and it’s bad for your health in terms of stiffed legs, cellulite formation, muscle deterioration and other similar negativities. That being said, is your job really that worth it to put your health at risk? Yup, I don’t think so either. However, modern technology and some really smart and inventive people have found a way for people to avoid compromising on their health: a height adjustable desk.
As mentioned, there are health problems that could arise from sitting in one position for long hours. It’s been scientifically proven that sitting all day, even in ergonomic chairs, can make overall health to decline. The risk of heart disease for people who sit the entire day is three times higher than for those who sit a lot less. Also, there’s a lot more pressure on the intervertebral discs of the lower back when we sit than when we stand. And finally, alternating between standing and sitting while being able to do your job, allows for frequent and regular moving, which reduces the occurrence of the possible risk factors.
A height adjusting desk is the type of desk that allows for easy height management. There’s a mechanism that allows all kind of people to be able to perform computer and paper work as they find it most convenient – alternating between sitting and standing. A desk that offers a height adjustment feature is very appropriate for use for a variety of people – older, disabled, obese and others. Besides heigh adjustment, the most important and most lucrative feature of this desk, allows the body to use its most “neutral posture”, which is the position when the body is at its strongest state and is most efficient.
Alternating between sitting and standing is not just recommended, it’s relaxing and offers long-term benefits from more than one aspect. People who practice this type of sitting at work generally feel more energized, don’t get tired so easily and have lower chances for risk of injuries. That being said, there will be less fatigued people absent from work which means you won’t have to suffer work force loses. Consequently, the productivity of your workers will be a lot higher, as they won’t feel like they’re chained to the chair constantly thinking how will they move their legs back home afterwards.
And finally, getting a height adjusting desk is kind of being a good and reasonable boss; you want to get the best from your workers, and in order to have it, you should give them the best possible working conditions they can ask for. Therefore, no excuses are acceptable.
It’s amazing how far has technology brought us: from a pile of straws covered with animal skin to a NASA-designed foam mattress made to meet the comfort needs of astronauts in space. That’s paradise for the pampered, modern, anxious characters we are today and imagining life without this luxury can easily be compared to a disaster of cosmic proportions.
What’s even more, we’re not ready to settle with just about anything; for some of us, a king bed simply isn’t enough, and for others, the offered level of mattress firmness is just cruel. A situation of this kind poses as a problem, but since we’re a generation of solutions, inventions and creativity, today there’s the option for custom sized mattresses. Yes, we actually can have the royal treatment: dimensions, material and firmness have just became a variable susceptible to our desires and needs. Read More →

“Summer – hair gets lighter, skin gets darker, water gets warmer, drinks get colder, music gets louder, nights get longer, life gets better”.
Is there anyone who does not love summer? Curling up on comfortable piece of furniture under the open sky has never felt better; an ice-cold drink in your hands, the warm summer breeze in your hair, and you and your besties comfortably laying in that outdoor daybed you were so much craving for and finally got; life couldn’t be better!
If you have done quite a lot of decorating or are thinking of doing so, you know it can be a complex process, more so because of the confusion where to begin with. You do not have to do a great deal of change actually, to bring some freshness to your home and it is easier than you might think. The secret often lies in simplicity: add a certain piece of furniture and you are sure to spark up your interior. For instance, when placed strategically, an accent chair aside from providing additional seating can take any room décor to a next level. While often used in living spaces as seat for extra guests, they can also be placed in bedrooms – place them in a corner with a lamp and small side table and voilà, you get an outstanding reading area.
