According to Color Psychology, green is the color of balance and harmony. It is also the color of growth, hope, spring, of renewal and rebirth. It is the sanctuary away from the stresses of modern living, restoring us back to a sense of well being. It is an emotionally positive color, giving us the ability to love and nurture ourselves and others unconditionally.
Here are some ways to add Emerald to any room. If your room is mostly neutrals you can add these gorgeous tables by Century as a focal point to the room. Another easy way to add emerald would be to order new pillows. Since Emerald is one of the predominate colors in nature, Emerald is everywhere in landscape art.
Emerald will pop against beiges, browns, grays and other neutrals. Emerald is also a great accent to blues and many pastels. In color theory Emerald’s complementary color is red. Used in small doses this works well. Be careful not to overdo it though or your friends may think you decorated your house for Christmas all year long. A good example to show how they can work together is shown in this chair by Wesley Hall.

That’s why our St. Louis furniture store offers furniture in three categories – good, better and best. Continue reading
“Once upon a time,” leather furniture was only available to an elite few. Not that my family was of the elite few, but I do recall my grandfather’s forest green English lounge chair. It was 1959, the leather was slick, cold, and – if I remember correctly – the chair was beginning to show its age, kind of like the old guy himself. But, man-oh-man, did that chair sit great! The chair was a wonderful item in his home, the fragrance of leather was unmistakable, and it left me with a lasting impression as to what luxury was. Continue reading
When you first set out on your own and bought furniture for yourself, you probably went for the basics: bedroom set, sofa, coffee table. At the time, you might not have even had a designated dining room area. But now that you’re more established with your own home and even an excuse or two to entertain, it’s time to consider your dining room. Over the years, your living room and bedroom have probably had a face-lift or two but can you say the same for the dining room? To help bring this room together, our St. Louis furniture store would like to offer some guidance. Continue reading
Once upon a time, a sofa or chair had a fairly maintenance free seat and back cushion in it. You sat in it, laid on it, got up and didn’t think much more about it. As I said, that was “once upon a time.” Today, the single most common complaint I hear from consumers is about the condition and appearance of the seat and back cushion in their sofa or chair.

For first time furniture buyers, knowing how to tell quality furniture from that which is simply attractive can be difficult. Often times, people buy new furniture based on how it looks, not considering its quality. But think about this: would you like your next sofa or table to be a place your family can gather for the next decade? Or do you plan on changing styles and looks every other year? Continue reading
As a family owned St. Louis furniture store, Dau Home Furnishings knows just what “family owned” means: quality, attention to detail and responsibility. That’s why we also carry furniture brands that are family-owned, like C.R. Laine. Not all families or homes are the same, and their furniture shouldn’t have to be either. Continue reading
After buying your first house, decorating it to reflect you and your family’s style might be high on the priority ‘to do’ list. While you may know some things you like, figuring out how to really express your style can create some questions. Do all my wood tones need to match? What about these drapes? How big should the dining room area rug be? Continue reading
