Modern Designer’s Lounge Chairs in Boston

sd153-sculpted-leather-brown-lounge-chair-3Lounge chairs are pieces of furniture that capture an essence of luxury and comfort in any home. They are the type of chair that immediately calls a person toward it. Their thick cushions, rounded arms and high backs promise immense comfort and support. On sight, a leather lounge chair can easily make one think of settling down to read a book, taking a little nap, watching a little television, enjoying a drink or a number of other leisurely activities.

Outside of being embodiments of comfort, lounge chairs can help enhance or mellow out a certain atmosphere. A fabric lounge chair with a wide and round body can easily take the edge off of a modern room and create a slightly cozier vibe. At the same time, a sleek leather lounge chair can further push a modern setting, especially if you have a set that goes along with an in-house bar. Either way, the addition of a lounge chair allows any type of room to become a place of relaxation.

Admittedly, the one aspect that most lounge chairs will impart into a room is a vintage quality. Even some of the most modern lounge chairs have a certain retro flair to them. This is in part because of the way that lounge chairs have been depicted in movies and television throughout the years. It is true that this presence on the screen has created a certain timelessness to lounge chairs, and yet they also provoke a feeling of times past.

Nonetheless, manufacturers do create a large selection of these comfortable, luxurious chairs, and a buyer can easily find a lounge chair that defies this vintage quality. Between the range of styles and the consistent promise of comfort, one cannot go wrong when buying a lounge chair. It will be the perfect spot in your home to unwind after a long day.

Modern office desk…get the good one.

sequel-desk-by-bdi-city-schemesOffices are places that we have separated from the rest of the house as a means to create an environment of productivity. Such spaces have a unique identity and layout in order to set up such a divide between its inner space and the rest of the house. Though mainly used for work or production reasons, such spaces can also be used as small sanctuaries as they do separate us from the normal house or family duties that we must tackle on a daily basis.

The main feature that defines this space is the office desk. The office desk, in fact, is capable of creating the essence of an office space even when you do not have the ability to dedicate an entire room to such a project. This is because the office table acts as the headquarters for any space that is dedicated to working. The available space on a table lets you effectively organize your work in a way that allows for quick access to different materials. You can spread out several papers and map out which assignments should be done first.

By itself, the space that an office desk provides is quite handy. However, the effectiveness of an office table grows tremendously with the addition of other tools. To accessorize a table with a personal computer and shelves gives you a space to fully immerse yourself into your work. You can file away old work, while keeping it nearby and can use the computer for research purposes as well as correspondence with clients or coworkers.

For any professional, freelancer or not, having a space within the home to get work done can be crucial to ensuring peace of mind. Knowing that you do not need to run to the office over the weekend, because you have a file for your work at home is priceless.

City Schemes offers variety of modern office furniture, including modern office adjustable height desk.

Number One Father’s Day gift is… a reclining chair

fathers day recliner boston 1Recliner chairs blend the comfort of a couch with the mobility and versatility of a chair. With such a design focus, it is safe to say that recliners are the most comfortable type of chair a person can have in their home. Designers focus on creating this perfect balance of comfort and utility, because recliner chairs have a certain traditional placement inside a home. When one thinks of a recliner, one probably thinks of visits to a grandparent’s house where they would sit on the lap of their grandfather or grandmother as they told stories from the comfort of a recliner. The association of recliners with an older generation is understandable. These abodes of comfort were after all built specifically to ease joint pain and other such ailments that besiege the elderly.

Today, recliners still hold onto that legacy of being the most comfortable chair in a home. However, to assume that such chairs remain only tied to an older generation would be an injustice. Manufacturers are consistently refashioning recliners in order to capture younger and more modern sensibilities, without sacrificing the therapeutic comfort that they are known for. As such, you will see more with slimmer lines that will take up less space, and yet they will still provide a seat of pure relaxation to nestle into with a book. This level of comfort is also why many use such chairs in their personal home theaters to create the ultimate viewing experience.

To ensure comfort and ease of use, companies spend a lot of money researching and developing technology that allows the chair to adjust perfectly to your body. Not only to adjust to your body, but to react to it. These types of chairs are built with the means to assist people when getting up and more. As the perfect combination of comfort and technology, you cannot go wrong in buying a recliner for your home.

Buying a leather sofa…

b858-vincenzo-top-grain-leather-sofa-quick-ship-6Sofas make a statement. They hold their ground in the center of a room, demanding attention from anyone who enters the space. Such power is due to the many needs that a sofa meets for the home, both aesthetically and functionally. Due to their positioning, a sofa’s shape and color play one of the largest roles in defining the overall style and tone of a room. As a place for an entire family or group of friends to relax, a sofa must be comfortable and allow for ease of communication. This is why choosing a sofa that not only fits your needs but your preferences is paramount to creating a comfortable abode.

Leather sofas are the best ways to make a statement and create a truly comfortable area in the home. They demonstrate a desire for elegance while still blending into a variety of environments. They can find placement in traditional, stately, modern, contemporary and even vintage settings. This versatility is accompanied by the knowledge that a leather sofa is one of the most durable, comfortable and luxurious pieces of furniture.

When buying a leather sofa, you are guaranteed a piece of furniture that will last and form to your body. The supple nature of leather grants everyone a high level of comfort. It bends and forms to the body, and yet consistently stays firm and supportive. It is the perfect piece of furniture for just about any type of activity. Whether you wish to simply watch TV with the family, entertain a gathering of friends or read a book, a leather sofa will provide the right atmosphere. The final benefit of a leather sofa is that it is a piece of luxury furniture that will last for years to come, constantly providing you comfort and style on a daily basis.

Contemporary Furniture by Tema Home at City Schemes in Greater Boston

sally-oak-dining-chair-tema-homeWe are proud to present to our local Boston contemporary customers a new line from Portugal – Tema Home. With over 30 years of experience in the manufacturing of furniture, TemaHome is one of the most internationally renowned companies in the furniture and lifestyle industry. It first started off as Norema Portuguesa, the name given to the merger between the Norwegian Norema SA and the Portuguese Mendes Godinho SA. It gained fame and recognition around the world with the manufacturing of modular furniture. Their early product lines came about due to the blending of Norway’s technology and Portugal’s efficient methods.


In 1995, the Norwegian partners took complete ownership of the company and focused on the production of furniture and accessories for kitchens, living spaces and bathrooms. During this period, the company focused on its sales in Norway. By 2000, the British 3i group PLC took over a majority of the shares and changed the name to Tema. With one more change of leadership and another name change (this time to TemaHome), the company refocused on the international market.

This new focus on the worldwide market led to the employment of 135 professionals who work in a 17,000-square-meter production plant in Tomar. It also led to collaborative projects with award-winning designs of famous Portuguese designers, such as Fernando Brízio and Filipe Alarcão. With such visionaries behind the company, TemaHome produces a collection of contemporary furniture and stylish accessories that are available in over 30 different countries around the world.


From TemaHome’s desks to their beds, you can expect excellent detail, innovative design and versatility.
