On September 9, 2013, Furniture Brands International filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The company planned to sell all businesses other than Lane Furniture to a group managed by Oaktree Capital Management LP. On October 2, a judge approved a $280 million stalking horse offer by KPS Capital Partners. On November 4, Samson Holding Ltd. , the largest stockholder, announced its intention to bid but that bid never took place, and on November 22, a judge approved the KPS bid. KPS announced the name Heritage Home Group LLC for the new owner of “substantially all of the assets” of Furniture Brands on November 25. Also announced at that time was the resignation of Furniture Brands chairman and CEO Ralph Scozzafava. Ira Glazer became Heritage president and CEO.
FREEDOM OF THE CENTRAL PART OF THE TABLE. Huge bouquets standing in the central part of the table most often look disharmonious, and also make communication between people who eat food difficult. A massive vase with large flowers is best replaced with a wicker basket or a decorative pot with several flowering plants. . ORDER MANDATORY FOR A COLLECTOR. The best advice for collectors of medium-sized things, whether cat figurines or pebbles of an unusual shape, is to keep them grouped in one place, and not randomly placed around the room. Chaos from little things can spoil even a very decent interior. WANT TO CHOOSE A STYLE FOR A DECOR - TAKE A LOOK AT THE CLOTHES OF THE HOUSING HOUSES. One of the ways that professionals use to choose the style and concept of decoration is to pay attention to the casual clothes of the owners of the house. This will tell a lot about their personal preferences and help decorate the space so that customers like it.
"CORRECT" CURTAINS - WITH WEIGHTLIGHTS AND TEN. In order for the curtains to form beautiful folds, braid should be sewn in their upper part, and weighting agents should be located in the lower part. The lining for curtains will not be superfluous: it provides excellent sound insulation and prevents them from fading under sunlight. CORRIDOR OR ENTRANCE HALL AS A BUSINESS HOUSE CARD. Corridor, hall or hallway - the space that we see first at the entrance to the dwelling, as well as the last at the exit from it. Therefore, these rooms, which are unfairly forgotten to decorate, are the hallmarks of the house. Choose a functional and compact decor, because the hall or corridor most often has a small area. UNIVERSAL BUT SUCH DIFFERENT PILLOWS. Pillows are suitable for decorating any interior, the main thing is to decide on a suitable color and size. But it is equally important to choose a place and a way of their placement. Large pillows, randomly scattered on the floor, will create a bohemian and democratic atmosphere, and square pillows lying in a row on the couch will be orderly and neat. THE COMBINATION OF BLACK AND WHITE WHICH SHOULD BE TAKEN CARE. White is considered one of the most versatile in the interior color palette. In many ways, this opinion also exists due to the wide range of its compatibility with other colors. But professional decorators are wary of black and white color duets. This maximum contrast combination looks too sharp for living space. An exception are paintings in a black frame on a white wall, which unobtrusively add graphic art to the interior.
OBJECTS ON THE WALL - A WELCOME ALTERNATIVE TO A HABITY WALL DECOR. Volumetric objects on the wall, whether it is a collection of plates brought from travel, or animal figures, will be a great alternative to paintings or posters. This decor, decorated in panels, looks more than original. NEUTRAL DARK TONES - "CHAMELEONS". At first glance, neutral saturated tones, for example, dark gray, look boring. But in fact, with different lighting, they change color. So, dark gray in the morning will appear bluish, and at sunset it will have a purple hue. A TREE OF DIFFERENT SHADES IN ONE ROOM IS THE MOST FAST EXPERIMENT OF AN EXPERIMENT. If the room contains a tree of different colors, for example, dark and light, then the interior will not look like a single whole. Therefore, an experiment with a combination of shades of wood is better left unrealized. Indeed, the common color unites interior objects, for example, furniture that differs in form, into a harmonious rhythmic composition. NEW LIFE OF OLD THINGS. The abundance of old things in the house is a characteristic that speaks of the interior from a negative side. But you should not completely abandon them. Connect your imagination, and among the things that seem to have served their purpose long ago, there will certainly be something interesting. Some can be used in the interior in its original form, while others will have to be painted, upholstered or decorated with decoupage. The main thing is to strive to see hidden opportunities in old things.
