Black and White Décor Style Trends For 2015

Posted on

The elegant simplicity of black and white décor has been a mainstay since the dawn of modern society. Though its popularity fluctuates annually, it’s a colour scheme you can always count on to be ‘in season.’ 2015 is no different. Without further ado, here are some of the most popular black and white décor style trends to watch for in 2015.

Black and White Graphic Patterns

Graphic patterns are popular in 2015 (as evident by the recent popularity of wallpaper), and the most popular colour scheme of these patterns? You guessed it: black and white. We’ve all seen large black and white prints when browsing our favorite furniture stores, and these prints are thankfully still in style. If you want to add a few graphics to your home, consider hanging large black and white photos from a bygone era. If you want to a more abstract look, consider hanging blurred black and white images. For an extra shot of creativity, consider getting these images printed on fabric!

Also consider purchasing black and white floor covers (but we’re getting ahead of ourselves – more on that in a moment).

Black and White in the Bedroom

If you want to incorporate a black and white style into the bedroom, consider purchasing a black, elegant comforter to drape atop new, white sheets. For an extra layer of black and white, consider purchase gray pillowcases. If you typically fold your comforter and flat sheet to the middle of your bed every morning, you should also consider purchasing black pillowcases, to create a ‘black-to-white-to-black’ appearance. Simple yet sophisticated, it’s a timeless look you won’t grow tired of anytime soon.

Black and White Living Room Set

The same principle can be applied to the living room as well. Especially if it is time to purchase a new coffee table, now is the time to incorporate this timeless look into your living room and/or family room. The easiest way to achieve this look is to purchase a black coffee table and rug (or a gray rug if you want an extra layer) combined with the white upholstery of your furniture  – or vice-versa! 

Therein lies the evidence as to why the black-and-white colour scheme is so popular: regardless of how you decide to mix-and-match, the look is going to be elegant and classy every single time. If you want to decorate even further, consider draping your flooring with a black and/or white floor cover in various areas of your spaces.

Black and White Furnishings with Sharp Edges

Finally, if you want to decorate your home with black and white furnishings – lamps, end tables, etc. – know that black and white furniture with sharp shapes are definitely in-style. Furnishings that seem to twist, curve, sink in, and expand out are all fair game; like everything else black and white in this list, it’s sure to add a level of sophistication that will bring out the best in your spaces.

However you decide to decorate with black and white décor, be sure to get creative with it. You cannot go wrong with decorating with black and white anything (after all, that’s one of this colour scheme’s biggest positives), so mix-and-match to your heart’s content. After it’s all said and done, you’re bound to be proud of what your new, stylish décor!

Colour Trends For 2015

Gold is Back


If there is one thing that we can say about the furniture colour trends of 2015, it is this: if it was once old, it is new again. Moreover, if the colour seems stripped from nature, it is in season once more. 2015 is going to be a year of decorating change. It’s time to rethink colour and transition into the latter part of the ‘10s with these hot, new furniture colours.

Gold is in

As a whole, the look of the Renaissance is in style. Both bold and soft gold colours are one of the coolest new looks for 2015. From strong, gold trimming around the upholstery of a family chair to soft shades of gold accenting the armrests of a sofa, that classical look of elegance and sophistication is one of the signature looks of the year.


Accent Chairs

Bold Navy

Blue accents 

Blue is most certainly the new black of 2015. Greek blue, sour green with blue, glossy blue – it’s all fair game! If you want to give your furniture a beautiful dash of blue, consider placing any type of furniture throw with a blue accent atop the furniture. Feel free to use this tip every year as well, as it is a cheap and easy way to update your furniture with the year’s trendiest colour.



Olive Green Pillows Add Some Punch To Any Sofa

As we mentioned a moment ago, colours that feel as if they belong in nature is one of the most in style trends of the year – and olive green is at the top. If you are tired of dark, bold furniture and you want to brighten up your room, you should seriously consider all of green; and who knows? The next time you fall asleep on your olive green sofa, you may literally feel as if you are falling asleep in a relaxing, calm forest.

Retro 60’s Furniture and Accents are hot this season

A look of the ‘60s

Thanks to hit television shows such as Mad Men, the look of the ‘60s is new again. Because colours of the 1960s used colours borrow from nature, this is one of the reasons why olive green is in such high demand. Other colours such as yellow, antique red, Tiger Lily, and so on are all stylish once more. If you want furniture that is as much of a throwback as it is a fashion statement, 60s-esque furniture is worthy of consideration.

Gray Is the New Neutral

Neutral gray

2015 is not just about bright, shiny colours; neutral gray is also a hot commodity. If you want furniture that blends in with anything but you are not keen on blue, the perfect substitute is neutral gray. Arguably, this could also be considered the ‘new black’ of 2015; it really depends on whom you ask. A surefire tone that is certain to blend in with the rest of your furniture, neutral gray is sophisticated while still subtle: the best of both worlds!

These Furniture Pieces Are Always A Hit At Our Bridal Parties!

Posted on


Here at Guaranteed A Fine Furniture, we regularly have bridal parties for soon-to-be brides. Couples simply register at our store, and from there family and friends pool their money together and purchase furniture pieces for the couple’s room. In many cases, attendees actually pool enough money together to finish an entire room! It’s one of the many things that makes our furniture store unique – and we want to share with you a few of the more popular furniture pieces. If you and your partner are thinking about getting married (or you know of a couple that is about to get married) and a bridal party is just around the corner, consider the following items below.

End Table

End Tables give character to any room.


End table

An end table is a great way to bring a room together. Often, couples are usually gifted a bunch of knickknacks for their first home that they would normally not have enough room for. Candy dishes, candleholders, etc. are the types of items that are perfect for an end table. Plus, end tables truly do bring a sense of beauty to a room!



A floor lamp is a great way to add lighting to any room.


Speaking of end tables, we left off possibly the most popular item for end tables: lamps! In fact, all types of lighting items are incredibly popular at our bridal parties. Not only can extra lighting give a couple’s first home that warm and cozy feeling that makes home feel like home, but it can also make a small space look much larger. Whether you cannot think of another item to add to your wedding registry or you are having difficulties thinking of that perfect gift for your favourite couple, lamps and other type of lighting items are always appreciated!


Dinettes are a lovely wedding gift.

Dinette set

It is said that one can never have too many dishes – and this is certainly true for newlyweds. As a couple makes the transition from living a bachelor/bachelorette lifestyle to living as a married couple, it can be easy for them to forget that they probably do not have enough dishes between the two of them. Even then, the dishes they own are probably already worse for wear.

Thus, a dinette set is always welcomed. There is nothing better for a married couple than being gifted fine silverware, plates, glasses, coffee cups, and more. Besides, the couple is probably going to want to show off their first home anyway – so what better way to celebrate than with a new dinette set?

Coffee table

We carry both traditional and modern coffee tables.

If you want to purchase a big-ticket item for your favourite newlyweds, consider purchasing a coffee table. While the couple may already own a coffee table apiece, it may not be in the best shape. We have an assortment of beautiful coffee tables just begging to live in a happy couple’s home – so give us a visit and see what we have to offer!



From pillows to duvets, bedding is a great a gift.

Anything bedding-related

If you want to blow the socks off of the soon to be bride, one of the best ways to do this is to purchase bedding essentials. New pillowcases, comforters, sheets, etc. are all great choices. If you really want to make her day (before the big day)? Make sure the material is silk!

Have a great day,
