Creative Ways to Incorporate Luxury Furniture Into Your Space

From classic upholstered couches to modern statement pieces, there are many creative ways to incorporate luxury furniture into your home. Whether you’re looking for a statement piece or just want to add some subtle luxury touches, there are plenty of options available that will make your space look more inviting and stylish. Here are some creative ways to incorporate luxury furniture into your home.

1.   Add a statement piece to the front door

This can be a comfort-focused sofa, an elegant chaise lounge or a modern cocktail table. Keep it slightly smaller than your doorway to add depth and interest while keeping it in scale with the rest of the home.

2.   Mix up your main colors

Blend the primary colors in your living room by including two luxe pieces – one that is light and airy and another that is dark and luxurious on the walls and floors respectively. This helps create visual interest while giving you plenty of options for styling with other accessories like pillows, throws, art or mirrors throughout the space.

3.   Use a neutral color palette to create visual interest in your living room

A white, gray, or taupe background helps balance the space and gives you plenty of options for accessorizing with accent colors throughout the room.

Have you ever wanted to start fresh and create a new space for yourself? With the New Room, New You concept, you can do just that. This concept involves creating a new room in your home that reflects your personality and goals. It’s a great way to make your home more inviting and inspiring.

The Psychology of High Class Design & How It Affects Your Mood & Productivity

Interior design is an art form that requires an understanding of the psychology behind it. It helps us create a room that evokes positive emotions, boosts motivation, and encourages people to take action. By understanding how colors, shapes, fonts, images, and other elements affect us psychologically, we can create designs that are both aesthetically pleasing and emotionally engaging.

If you’ve ever been to a spa, you know that the right lighting, scent, and temperature can often have a profound effect on how you feel. This is because these factors influence your state of mind. For example, an environment with bright overhead lights and clean white paint will make a person feel alert and focused while an environment with dim lighting and dark colors will make them feel calm and relaxed.

Similarly, inhaling aromatherapy oils or saunas can help to switch up our mood depending on what we are trying to accomplish. In fact, psychologists have found that it is possible to change our mood by incorporating the right lighting, scent, and temperature into our environment. But what does furniture have anything to do with this?

Changing the furniture in your home can help create a more positive atmosphere and make you feel more relaxed and comfortable. It can also improve the overall aesthetic of your home and make it look more inviting. By rearranging or replacing furniture, you can give yourself an instant boost of energy or even reduce stress levels.

Modifying your furniture can also change how you interact with others in your home because different pieces of furniture can foster multiple social environments. Furthermore, it is important to consider how the size and shape of the furniture impact how much space you have available in each room, as this will determine how much freedom you have to move around and interact with other people.

With the festive season around the corner, it is time to decorate your home for Christmas!

Christmas is a time for family and friends to get together and celebrate. It is also a time for giving gifts to one another. If you are looking for luxury high-end interior design ideas, we have curated some of the best Christmas decorations that will add warmth and cheer to your home.

There are many ways in which you can decorate your home for Christmas, especially if you’re hosting. Keep reading to see some of our favorite decorations that will help you achieve a luxurious and festive look.

How to Make Your Christmas Celebration Truly Luxurious

While it may seem like a lot of work to organize a Christmas dinner party for your closest friends and family on top of all the other celebrations, we have all the best advice you need to ensure that your spectacular party will be a smashing success and remembered for years to come.

⦁ Think ahead
When it comes to organizing your Christmas dinner party, it’s never too early. The more you accomplish before the party begins, the less stress you’ll experience that day as well. Planning the event weeks beforehand will allow you plenty of time to organize everything, including the menu, beverages, invitations, decorations, theme, and attire. Additionally, it will increase the enjoyment of the whole process.

Everything should ideally be prepared the night before the party so that you have more time the next morning to get ready and take care of any last-minute details.

⦁ Send out invites
Without attendees, a party isn’t a party at all! Sending out your invitations two to three weeks beforehand will give guests enough time to make travel arrangements and select the ideal dinner party outfit. Even while it’s simple to send an email invitation or post an invitation on social media, going above and beyond to plan beautiful, handmade paper invites that match your party’s theme will seem much more unique.

To ensure you have enough food for everyone, ask attendees to RSVP the week before your party. However, make sure you also buy enough food for a few extra guests in case any unforeseen guests show up.

⦁ Decide on the Christmas menu
Make sure you’ve asked your guests about any dietary restrictions before deciding on the food for the Christmas dinner party so you can accommodate everyone. Thanksgiving and stuffing, potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, fruitcake, and gingerbread are the main crowd-pleasers during Christmas, which is a blessing.

We advise against experimenting while preparing for a large crowd and instead advise adhering to the tried and true methods. The last thing you want is to try a new recipe and become stressed out if it doesn’t turn out as you expected. Simple dishes that you have previously prepared won’t require as much time and effort, allowing you to spend more time with your visitors.

⦁ Create a festive tablescape
Your dining table should be exquisitely arranged to wow your guests. Your guests will feel more festive right away if you set the table with elegant Christmas dinnerware, such as dinner sets, cutlery, table runners, and serving dishes. Using seasonal flowers in the color scheme of your theme will also harmonize the table’s appearance. Additionally, don’t forget the crackers for some holiday entertainment in between courses!

Dining Table

Calypso Cocktail Table

Understanding good table setting techniques will improve the evening for you and your guests. Our best advice is to evaluate the height of your centerpieces and other decorations while seated in various positions to make sure that it doesn’t seem or feel crowded and that you can see the food platters and other seats well.

Remember that when it comes to interior design, seeing is believing. That is why a trip to the showroom floor at Mercato Interiors is a must for any holiday season preparations. There you can speak one-on-one with one of our skilled design consultants and see how pieces like these can help elevate your home’s next holiday celebration.

The holidays are just around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about how you will decorate your home for the festive season.

While there are many way to decorate your home for the holidays you just cant beat the look and feel of a style that is truly unique to you.

If you don’t know where to begin or are at a loss for what to do, don’t worry. This short guide will give you ideas and tips on how to choose the best holiday accessories for your home!

How to Find the Perfect Holiday Decor for Your Home

If you find that initial inspiration hard to come by, try to start with what you like. What colors do you gravitate towards? Are there certain things that remind you of your childhood? What do you like to do most in your space?

The next step is determining what type of holiday decorating style you prefer in your home. There are several to choose from:

Traditional: A traditional Christmas tree with stockings hanging from the mantle and a Christmas wreath on the door
Contemporary: A modern Christmas tree with lights and ornaments
Eclectic: Mixing contemporary with traditional elements 
Rustic: Decorations made from natural materials like wood and clay

Once you know what kind of decoration style speaks to you, it’s time to start shopping! Here are some tips on how to find the perfect holiday decor for your home:

Start with one room 

Every year, people get overwhelmed by how much work needs to be done before they can enjoy their holiday festivities. If you’re starting from scratch, this can seem extremely dauting, so start small.
Decorate one room or even just one corner of your home with decorations that represent your favorite holiday tradition or memories from the past.

Think about scale 

Your decorations may not be up year-round, but that’s no excuse why they can’t complement the rest of your home with a similar color, theme or size.

Think about the size of each piece too; if you’re going for a minimalist look, don’t buy anything bigger than what you already own. If you’re going for something more elaborate and colorful, make sure that the pieces are proportionate to each other.

Our Recommendations: The 5 Best Holiday Decorations to Spice Up Your Home

⦁ Tabletop Tree

The tabletop tree is a great way to bring some life into your living room without taking up too much space. It can be used as a centerpiece or on top of the cocktail table for added ambiance. You can also use this idea in your bedroom if you don’t have enough room for a real tree.

  1. Holiday Lights
    Holiday lights are perfect for adding some color and festivity to any room in your home. They can be strung around windows, over doors, or on ceilings for added ambiance as well as decoration purposes. You can also place them by the fireplace to make the living room extra cozy. Don’t forget to consider the tone of lighting in your living space or the chandelier in your dining room when searching for lights to pair.
  1. Glassware
    Glassware is a great way to bring some shine and cheer to your holiday decor. Mercato Interiors has a wide selection of glass sculptures in all shapes, sizes and colors. These can be used as decorative pieces on mantles or tables or used in window displays for an added splash of color.

  1. Wreath With Lights
    A wreath with lights can be hung on your front door during the holidays to welcome anyone who comes around, while also adding some color and life to your house. 

The terms ‘stunningly beautiful’ and ‘lavishly comfortable’ usually act like two poles of a magnet when it comes designing furniture.   Until now! 

Natuzzi Italia’s renowned furniture architects Manzoni and Tapinassi have seemingly defied the furniture laws of physics with the Fidelio Reclining Sofa where extreme comfort comes together with striking beauty to form what could be considered the perfect sofa.


Boasting a rock-solid firm structure and optional high-tech power relax systems, the Fidelio feature armrests that are embellished by a handstitched ”pinched” piping and rests on a metal frame which defines the modern outline of the sofa.

A full power version is available where each seat is equipped with an exclusive Soft Touch relaxation mechanism that operates separately from the other seating positions and allows you to simply slide your finger on the armrest to change the seat and backrest position for optimum comfort.


The Fidelio also includes Natuzzi’s recliner mechanism which features a “zero wall” system that allows the seats and backrest to move and incline forward as the sofa opens so there’s no need to keep it away from the wall. 

The Fidelio is available in a wide range of fabric and fine thickened Natuzzi leather upholstery options.

All too often the answer is “not very”.  It usually takes a pillow stuffed here or there, combined with having to twist or turn your body to that find that sweet spot, which inevitably doesn’t last too long anyway.  When you think about, you are actually conforming to your chair instead of the other way around.    There is a better solution.

American Leather created the Comfort Air that was designed to move and conform with your body to find YOUR most comfortable position, not the chair’s.  It uses a patented mechanism that cradles you to the perfect lounging position for optimal comfort.  It will glide, swivel, and rock with you.


 Knowing that people come in all sizes, American Leather gives you three sizes to choose from, from standard to oversized, all of which can be customized to fit your comfort needs with a huge assortment of fabrics, leathers, footrests, and finishes.

There are six styles of Comfort Air Chairs and the solution to finding the right one for you is to visit our showroom and take a few for a ‘test-drive’.  

It has been said that “art must be an expression of love or it is nothing.”  As humans we express ourselves in many ways, from the clothes we wear, to the way we speak and the objects we surround ourselves with.  Our home and how we furnish it is the ultimate in expression.  It clearly and instantly states who we are and where our unique style and tastes lie.

This can also be said for those who design and manufacture the furniture we select for our home.  An excellent example of this expression is the Cuff Bed designed and handcrafted by the artisans at Bonaldo Italia. 

Cuff singolo (1)_HR (1).jpg

The Cuff Bed was designed to express a strong personality through the use of bold tailoring details such as the unique ‘frog fastenings’ that adorn the two flaps that cover the luxuriously padded headboard as well as the pleating that marks the vertical pattern of the back panel cover.  These details are intended to dramatically stand out by demanding the viewer s attention.

Bonaldo expresses their love in the art of furniture sculpting by the use plush upholstery for the headboard which they make available in either fine leathers, eco-leather, or rich traditional fabrics.  These materials can be carried over to the bed surround as well.  In another expression of the beds strong personality are the bold metal feet, that are available in different colors allows yet another opportunity to express one’s self in functional art.

Designed for a modern world, the Cuff is available in a storage version with a double-movement mechanism that provides an excellent place for pillows, extra bedding and even clothes and personal belongings. 

We invite you visit Mercato Interiors and see the Cuff Bed displayed in an exquisitely detail room vignette that promises to delight the senses and inspire your imagination. 

One of the first questions new clients ask when they visit Mercato Interiors is what is the difference between the various styles and which style suits me best?  At Mercato Interiors we carry the two most popular styles in the industry today, which is transitional and contemporary-modern.   Big, bulky, dark traditional furniture was once super-popular  during the ‘Tuscany Craze’ but has since been replaced with lighter, more minimalistic modern designs. 

In general, modern-contemporary pieces tend to be minimalist, with sleek, simple lines. When some people hear the term “modern furniture” they imagine artistic pieces not suited for everyday use.  But in truth they are!  At Mercato Interiors, we specialize in high-end, well-made, comfortable furniture to suit any taste.

Modern-contemporary furniture refers to furniture styles that came about after the 19th century. These pieces tend to utilize lighter wood tones, brighter fabrics, and newer materials, like metal and clear acrylics. Contemporary furniture embraces the use of free, open space as part of the focal point of the home and is popular as it helps to enhance these spaces by being less visually heavy. Although contemporary furniture tends to be lighter and less ornate, you want to ovoid cramming multiple pieces into a single area. The overall appeal of the modern look is that it doesn’t take up too much space, and it provides functional multitasking, such as additional storage.

This style of furniture is in essence a bit of contemporary and traditional combined.  When defining your design style, if you find contemporary too sleek and edgy, than your borderline style may be “transitional.”

Transitional style is a marriage of traditional and contemporary furniture, finishes, materials and fabrics. The result is an elegant, enduring design that is both comfortable and classic. At Mercato Interiors we carry a great many pieces that fit into this style, including living rooms, bedrooms and dining rooms.

 When choosing which style for your home, the secret is to choose what appeals to you the most and how they blend with the spaces you intend to fill.   At Mercato Interiors we’ll work with you every step of the way to find what suits your tastes and needs.

If you’re like me, I can walk into a room, look around and instantly know that something is missing. All the components of design are there such as color, furniture, and accessory items, but the entire room just feels a little flat. What’s missing? Texture!  

For what ever reason, texture seems to sometimes be an afterthought when it comes to interiors and yet its the thing that makes a room pop. It’s what brings a perfectly fine design up to enviable levels. Here are my thoughts and ideas on texture. 


It is often defined as, “the sensations caused by the external surface of objects received through the sense of touch”, which translates into how things feel. Think about texture as running your hand along a rough wooden tabletop, soft carpet between your toes, or sinking down into a leather couch.

 But as an interior designer, I can tell you that you don’t need to have physical contact with a room to feel the power of texture. Although it may only play a supporting role to the function of the space, it is no less vital to a design’s success. 


If you have visited Mercato Interiors or have read design magazines, you’ve heard the term “Visual Weight” mentioned often. What that means is that an object or space has the ability to draw attention to itself. 

We use warm or cool colors to effect how a space feels. Texture works in a similar way. Rough textures are more likely to make a space feel intimate and grounded while smooth textures bring a sleeker more aloof tone to the room. Where these textures are placed in the room is an important to what textures are selected. Putting a smooth texture directly next to a rough one while make the rough object stand out more and seem weightier than if you space them apart.



I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, contrast is essential when it comes to design because it keeps things balanced and provides visual interest. For example, if everything is too similar, our eyes have trouble focusing and tend to glaze over. The use texture makes sure your most important elements pop. 

The secret to getting right is ‘restraint’! Don’t go crazy, just try and stick to two or three distinct textures in any single space. Choose three when you want people to take in the space as a whole and stick to two when you want to emphasize a prominent focal point.


Texture is particularly important if you’re working within a particular color palette where the shades are very similar. If using a monochromatic or analogous color scheme, make sure you choose items that heavily contrast with one another. When they come together, they will bring a sense of harmony to the space. 


The use of texture is well and good, but it only goes so far if you don’t know how to effectively bring it into your home. Here are the rules I use when adding texture to a room: 

Architectural Elements: If you have crown molding, chair rails, or tray ceilings in your home, make them a focal point. 

Furniture: Wooden benches, satin reading chairs, and marble tabletops all bring a distinct feel to the space. 

Decor Items: I often use shadow boxes, accessories, table lamps, knick-knacks and even flowers at time.

 Floor and Wall Coverings: A carefully placed throw rug or even some patterned wall design will bring tons of depth to the room.

 Textiles: Use cloths like slip covers, throw pillows, and even blankets to make the room pop.


Something to remember is you are using when choosing Texture vs. Pattern. These two things are usually talked about together, but they are two distinct and necessary components of design. Pattern refers to a visual print while texture is about how something feels. Make sure you incorporate both into your interiors instead of choosing one over the other.

 Whether it be a throw rug to warm up your bedroom room or a wooden coffee table to bring life to your living space, the importance of texture is clear. Texture is the component that helps elevate your interiors to the next level and makes it feel fit for a magazine.
