Nothing Expresses Style More Than A Showpiece.
Our homes hold much more than things. They are a vehicle of self-expression. We all accept this as an indisputable fact.
Since each of us is unique, homes come in different shapes, sizes, and designs. We curate our homes in specific ways to create spaces that we would be comfortable in (and proud of), but we also desire to create spaces that we feel will draw attention and admiration from those that visit us.
At Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices EWM Realty, we are constantly showcasing homes across South Florida to potential buyers. Seeing so many diverse spaces allows us to discern what common threads are making their way into popular design. More recently, especially among high-end homes, homeowners are increasingly incorporating sculptural furniture into their interiors. What is sculptural furniture you might ask? They are generally custom furnishings that defy the accepted norms of how a certain piece of furniture should look without compromising its function. Perhaps the best example is a couch. We generally expect couches and sofas to follow a certain design in terms of their shape. This is where sculptural furniture thrives. Without changing the intended use of the piece, these unique home furnishings introduce a host of artistic elements that involve changes in shape, depth, and overall style.
Sculptural furniture often ends up being the showpiece within a space—the type of furnishing that will have your guests wondering where you obtained it. They are in essence, conversation starters by design. When people comment on anything in our home in a positive way, it has an uplifting effect on how we view our space and is, of course, an incredible confidence booster.
Most homeowners will gravitate to a certain design style, whether it be neo-modern, mid-century revival, traditional, coastal, glam, or others. However, each design style can be amplified by incorporating a piece of sculptural furniture or two. When you have potential buyers viewing your home, the perceived value of the home can go up if the home is thought to be unique and special. Creating the experience for them can help you get better results when offers start to come in.
