It's a great investment because leather actually gets better with age and will outlast most upholstered furniture. Buying leather furniture can be a big investment so it's best to think carefully about what type of furniture and leather will fit your tastes and lifestyle.<br/>When choosing leather, consider that it is a natural material and nature's signatures will be incorporated into it. These signatures may be in the form of healed scars, blemishes or other markings that should be considered natural beauty marks. Color variations also occur in aniline leathers........ <a href="http://home-design-network.ning.com/profiles/blogs/how-to-buy-leather-furniture" rel="nofollow">read more</a><br \><br \>1 reply Sat, 18 Jul 2009 04:05:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-to-buy-leather-furniture/257605/ 2009-07-18T04:05:00Z Hardwood characteristics http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Hardwood-characteristics/257604/ <br/>Which wood is best for furniture, mahogany, maple, beech, cherry, teak, pine or oak?<br/><br/>Available in a variety of colors, grains, and hardnesses, solid wood has always been a preferred material for fine furniture.

If you're looking to make a bold statement, take it a step further by adding a paint stripe to a hallway, office or bedroom. This is a way to create a sense of drama and really draws your eye around the room. Depending on the width and quantity of stripes you use, stripes can act as artwork on your walls, keeping the money in your pocket that you might otherwise have spent on art prints, frames and matting. The possibilities are endless when striping a wall so I have added a few photos as a source of inspiration for those of you wanting to have some fun with stripes!.......<a href="http://home-design-network.ning.com/profiles/blogs/painting-with-stripes" rel="nofollow">.read more</a><br/><br/><br \><br \>0 replies Sat, 18 Jul 2009 03:57:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Painting-with-Stripes-by-Stephenie-Avila-Home-Design-Network/257602/ 2009-07-18T03:57:00Z
