Of all the things I could write about this week, for some reason furniture is on my mind.

Fact: One of my favorite topics in the world is furniture.

Yes, you read that right. Furniture. Some people might think that is a bit boring but I’m thinking maybe they just haven’t been exposed to the truly fabulous and inspired pieces like the ones we carry at Design Connection, Inc.  One of the more surprising facts about custom furniture is that it is priced competitively with the items you see in the big chain stores.  Why settle for having the exact same furniture as everyone else when stunning furniture is not only affordable, it’s UNIQUE! Hopefully after reading this you will be just as excited as I am about furniture. Read on my friends, and enter the wonderful world of possibilities that await in the realm of custom, designer furniture!


I always look forward to the chairs from C.R. Laine. They have a way of creating divine shapes that are so beautiful and elegant that they can be upholstered in practically anything and always look stunning, like the Dautry chair. Sit in one of these and it’s pure bliss!

I love this updated take on the traditional sleigh bed. The elegant curved wood base provides a beautiful frame for your gorgeous bed linens and everything is nice and neat, clean and classic.

Drawers don’t have to be boring and furniture with drawers is perfect for keeping your space nice and tidy! Enter this to-die-for chest with it’s wonderfully contrasting matte black wood finish with faux shagreen drawer fronts. With the cool wood and leather-like texture of the faux shagreen this piece is simply divine.

Why settle for an ordinary glass table when you can have one with STYLE like this one. With bent glass, stainless steel and wood, the look is an original and is a practical and beautiful variation on the standard glass top dining table.

Of the many wonderful benefits of custom furniture is the ability you have to create something one-of-a-kind that is so unique you simply won’t find it anywhere else and certainly not in the mainstream department stores. A great example of this is this very cool chair from one of my favorites, C.R. Laine. Seeing this chair from the back is one thing, and seeing it from the front makes it a show stopper!
