Traditional Bedroom Furniture Traditional bedroom furniture is elegant & timeless.

Less grand and a bit more casual, these bedroom furniture pieces have fewer fussy details. Edges are smooth and soft, contributing to a homey, welcoming feel.

Contemporary/Modern Bedroom Furniture Contemporary bedroom furniture features simplicity & clean lines.
Clean lines, neutral elements and bold color characterize contemporary/modern bedroom furnishings. This bedroom furniture style is known for its underlying simplicity of line, shape, form, and attention to practical functions as compared to the dramatic and lavish appearances of traditional bedroom furniture styles. Modern bedroom furniture often incorporates classic and traditional features in subtle, understated ways. Our popular platform beds are characteristic of this bedroom furniture style, offering uncomplicated bed elevation and a simple, unpretentious aesthetic.
Transitional Bedroom Furniture Transitional furniture is versatile, blending seamlessly into almost any setting.
Transitional style is easy to approach for the do-it-yourself designer. Transitional bedroom furniture combines both contemporary and traditional furniture styles.

Country Bedroom Furniture Country-style bedroom furniture is both casual & unpretentious.
Country style has been reinvented. Previously recognized as being archaic and almost campy, 'country style' lost a bit of its appeal in the context of the popular contemporary and modern styles. However, as country-style bedroom furniture is both casual and unpretentious, its traditional charm has prevailed, making it again one of the most popular furniture styles on the market.

Mission/Shaker Bedroom Furniture Mission bedrooms are simple, elegant and uniquely American.
Mission bedroom furniture can be identified by its clean straight lines, evoking the same organic beauty as Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural designs. Its style is simple, utilitarian and uniquely American. Mission style furniture is the distinctive product of the simple woodworking and exposed joinery used by Spanish missionaries in Southwestern North America. Fumed oak is the material most characteristic of this style, and accents of warm colored fabrics and leathers complete the look.

Leather bedroom furniture is a new trend, born from the union of contemporary, European and mission styles. Leather bedroom furniture offers a luxurious and dramatic look in any bedroom. Warm chocolates and sumptuous midnight blacks are the ideal colors for these impressively upholstered beds. Leather panel beds may be either completely or partially upholstered with sensual leather. Look for creamy linens with colorful accents to make a leather bed even more welcoming.
Wicker Bedroom Furniture Wicker bedroom furniture can be enchanting and exotic.
Wicker has found its way from the patio to the bedroom. Beautifully interlaced canes and reeds of wicker and rattan furniture evoke the intoxicating tropical look of the islands of the South Pacific or the wistful ease of a rose-encircled garden cottage. The two most popular styles of wicker bedroom furniture are the darker, natural finished tropical rattans and the bright white loom weaves of cottage-style wicker. Either way, wicker beds offer faraway enchantment to city or suburban homes.

No matter how careful we are, what could have been avoided sometimes just happens. We get food spilled on our clothes while cooking or eating, our men soak their shirts with sweat when they go to the gym, our kids get too rowdy and play in the dirt even if they are told to stay clean, and guests can leave marks on the pristine upholstery of the living room furniture. Yes, stains happen even when we least expect it.
Taking stains out of clothes and household fabrics can be tricky and time-consuming, not to mention test our patience. But nonetheless, there are ways of doing it effectively, without damaging our fabrics. Here are ways how:
1. Remove stains while they are still fresh. It becomes tougher to clean stains when they have already dried or set into the fabric. Wash them immediately, and if the clothes require dry cleaning, take them to the cleaners as soon as possible.
2. There are clothes and fabrics that come with special instructions as to how they are to be washed and how the stains should be removed from them. If your stained clothes have special instructions like these, it would be best to follow these instructions to the letter.
3. Before applying your stain remover to the stain itself, test how it works in an inner seam or on a part of your garment that is not easily visible. In this way, you would be able to see how your clothes would react to the chemicals of the stain remover, whether or not it would change the color of the fabric.
4. Treat the stain from the back of the cloth. If it is treated from the outer side, where the stain actually is, rather than from the inner side, the stain might pass through the other side of the garment.
5. If you are using dry-cleaning solvents on your fabric, take care to rinse the solvents off completely before throwing the fabric into the washing machine. Or better yet, wash that fabric manually and air-dry it. Dry-cleaning solvents contain chemicals that may prove to be fire hazards when put in a washing machine.
6. Be careful in using bleach. Using bleach on just the stained spot may result in an uneven appearance in the color of the stained garment.
7. Different stain removal products have different components in them. So, just stick to one product in cleaning the stains off a particular garment, or else it will only end up ruining the fabric. And whatever product you have used, remember to wash it off thoroughly, so the product's residue will not be a stain itself.
The most important thing to remember in cleaning out stains is that you should be patient when doing it. It can get frustrating, especially if the stain is too hard to take off, but that is just that. Sometimes, a stain can only be removed after repeating the process several times. There will also be a time when a stain will not come off no matter how hard you try. In that case, just accept the fact that your favorite dress or shirt is now ruined. Worry not; at least you tried.
