Furniture Styles - A Middle Path

By: Sarika Kabra
It so happened one day that my spouse and I were taking? a trip to thefurniture store, disagreeing as usual about what kind of furniture toget and not coming to any solution. We have always had our littlestylistic disagreements in the past, and so when the time came topurchase new furniture, there was certain to be some more discussion. To explain things a bit, we have both had our different styles, for aslong as we’ve known each other. I have always been more interested inthings having a history behind them. Whether that relates to movies,food, travel, or simply to buying new furniture, I have always likedanything which brings the past into the present and gives things a feelof permanence.? On the other hand, my spouse has almost the complete opposite stylisticinclinations. The food must always be different and new, the places wego to the next hot spot and the movies alternative and very trendy. Thesame thing of course applied to furniture—so you can imagine how thingsstarted out.We were then arguing about what to buy for the bedroom.

My spouse ofcourse was more interested in getting something quite new, and pointedout in a magazine this contemporary platform bed, so low to the ground that you’d feel like you were sleeping on the floor.Instead, I turned the pages a bit to more traditional bedroom furniture,a bed that you could easily get on and get off without the necessity ofkneeling, and something that you could actually see the floor beneathit. The bed had some nice ornamentation on it, which made for a verybeautiful look, and by the way, a comfortable looking mattress.The end result was that we continued to argue all the way to thefurniture store and then started to look at everything from sectionalsofas, to kitchen sets, until we finally got to the bedroom section. Sohow do you think our day trip to the store ended?We actually wanted a bed and a nightstand, which did complicatematters, since we didn’t want two different styles in the same room,which would make for a very odd look. In the end, the decision that wedid come to, was to go with something in between, and hence we went fora more traditional but modern style for the bed and nightstand, andsince we had always wanted to get something else in the living room, wewent for a slightly more modern leather recliner. The result of our compromising was that the house now has a very interesting look.? The point of the story is that even in a situation where you have twopeople living in the same house with very different styles, you canstill come to a solution when it comes to furnishing things.? You justneed to learn how to compromise in the right way. What is reallyinteresting about this is that in the end you may just find that yourhouse looks much better than it normally would have with just a singlestyle. Because of our stylistic differencesFree Web Content, my spouse and I havedefinitely made for an interesting look.
