Contemporary dining chair by SohoConcept

Though chairs are not as essential as a bed or counter, they do play an extremely important role in the house. They provide any space with a sense of coziness, because they act as a welcoming tool, an invitation to make yourself comfortable in a home. Just try to imagine going to a friend’s home for dinner and finding the dining table without any chairs set about it. It would be difficult to feel welcomed into the home.

Despite chairs serving such a utilitarian function in the house, manufacturers create a broad lineup of styles. This is because chairs can, as they generally do, fit in a variety of settings. There are general styles that better conform to a dining set than they would to an office space. One can see that sohoConcept understands this by looking at the company’s wide range of dining chairs.

Founded in 2000, sohoConcept has become a renowned manufacturing company. Its focus is providing customers with clean-lined furniture made from the highest-quality materials, guaranteed to last a long time. This mission helps sohoConcept take on modern and contemporary styles. The straightforward designs allow the company to be bold with color patterns and create visually aggressive pieces of furniture.

Such design styles are on full display in sohoConcept’s lineup of modern dining chairs. The Prada Fully Upholstered Dining Chair features a curved back that contrasts heavily with its slim base, making it perfect for a modern setting. For a more contemporary space, the Polo Flat Dining Chair is perfect with its sleek frame and open body. Despite being able to make a statement with any of its products, sohoConcept can also provide more neutral pieces of furniture for a casual environment, such as the Polo Sled Dining Chair.

Livingroom Contemporary Sofas by SohoConcept BNT

Sofas capture the heart of the home. Even the most modern and trendy sofas inherently exude a sense of warmth. They are one of the primary pieces of furniture that help bring people together. Whether it is a couple trying to have an intimate moment or an entire gathering of friends, a sofa provides the space and comfort needed for these situations to go smoothly. Due to a sofa’s ability to handle so many different types of social situations, the style and size of your sofa can say a lot about you.

sohoConcept understands the different hints that a sofa can drop about its owner. A small two-seater sofa will suggest someone who is private and most likely does not have kids, while a sectional suggests someone who really enjoys being able to fully relax with friends or family.

In order to provide for the various tastes of its customer base, sohoConcept provides a diverse lineup of sofas. For a room that needs a touch of elegance, take a look at the Taxim Sectional Sofa with its buttoned seats and straight lines. The Laguna Sofa is the epitome of the contemporary age with its sleek body and slim legs. It proves the power of minimalist design. To add a special twist to your home, the curved body and unique contours of the Harmony Sofa will stand out in any space.

Guarantee you’re satisfied with a sofa from sohoConcept.

A Clean Home With Dirty Air?

Cleaning products are a big business: according to Statista, their sales account for $61 billion in the US alone. You only have to look down the cleaning aisle of any grocery store to see a wide range of cleaning supplies, for everything from window cleaning to mould removal. Have you ever considered though, that the cleaning products you are using may actually be making the air in your home dirtier? 

Breathe It In 

We often think of air pollution as a problem that affects the outside world, and something we can do little about individually – cars that other people drive, factories, forest fires – all are outside our control. Furthermore, part from picking where you live carefully, there’s not a whole lot you can do about it.  However, recent research suggests that indoor air pollution is a major problem, and that it may actually be the air inside our homes which is more harmful to us. 

An Inside Problem 

Every item we bring into our home that releases fumes can be particularly irritating to those who suffer from respiratory problems like asthma or skin sensitivities like eczema. We then often use cleaning products on them, which just compounds the problem and increases the levels of chemicals in our homes. 

A Natural Solution 

The easiest way to avoid indoor air pollution is to think carefully about what you bring into your home: whenever possible, buy items made from natural substances, which in general will off-gas much less than man-made chemicals. For example a leather chair will contain far fewer chemicals than one covered in an artificially manufactured acrylic fabric. When you do buy a new item of furniture try to air it outside for at least a few hours, or if you need to bring it straight inside then ensure the room is well-ventilated for a few days after purchase. 

Green Cleaning 

Choosing your cleaning supplies carefully can make a huge difference to the air quality in your home – there are ranges of natural and eco cleaners out there that are much better for both the environment and you.  However, make sure to read the labels carefully – the regulations around ‘natural’ labelling are quite lax, and products often contain synthetic chemicals. 

A better solution is to stick with nature’s cleaning supplies – hot soapy water and elbow grease are often the best cleaners around, and vinegar and baking soda will make most things gleam again, thanks to their natural cleansing properties. Additionally, air fresheners – contrary to their name – are actually a major indoor air polluter. A much better way to keep your home smelling fresh is to keep it well ventilated, or use an air purifier.  If you miss the ‘clean’ smell you used to get from your old air freshener, it may be worth trying an essential oil diffuser – they release a pleasant smell without all the harmful chemicals. 

There’s a limited list of things you can do to stop outside air pollution, but you can control what comes into your home. So, ensure your cleaning products are as natural as possible to keep the air in your home fresh and clean.

giuudita-54820-high-back-chair-by-w-schillig-newThough many people might initially overlook the importance of a chair, chairs do play a vital role in the home.
