Elegant and swanky, leather furniture rules the roost. It can make your room look chic or rusty. Leather furniture has its own charm no matter how it is arranged. The lovely colors of leather furniture make it seem suave and soft, giving it an edge over the others. However, leather furniture care is often overlooked by us. Valuing the furniture just as much as you value it's looks, isn't a difficult task and can be accomplished through some basic precautionary measures.
In 1804, Napoleon Bonaparte had himself anointed and crowned Emperor of France. The furniture style known as Empire is a style of majestic grandeur that Napoleon felt fitting to honor his glory. He considered himself the greatest world ruler since Julius Caesar. The Empire style is the last of the great French styles that widely influenced furniture design throughout the world. During his rule, Napoleon conquered Italy and Egypt. He was overwhelmed by his conquest of these countries. He brought back to France archaeological wonders of Egypt, the long-forgotten ancient empire. He was proud of his conquest of Italy and Egypt and proudly considered himself as the first worthy successor to Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar. Furniture designed in this period was meant to imitate the designs of these great empires. Napoleon commissioned the greatest artist of Europe to create architecture and decoration that would equate the grandeur of Greece, the glory of Rome and the massiveness of Egypt.
You can even take inspiration from a ceiling lamp that can be made with an old wall fan. The fan blades are to be removed and replaced with a light bulb. You will need to get the bulb socket fixed accordingly, for the light to function properly. The entire fan can then be covered with a bright translucent fabric or sheet.
Grease Stains: Grease stains are formed due to spilling of oily food items or any substance containing oil. Blotting of the oil is the first thing you should do when your furniture is stained by grease. Then, simply put some talcum powder on the stained area to absorb the remaining oil, later wipe off the powder. Do not apply water or any other liquid when the furniture is stained with oil or any other greasy substance.
