Our favorite living room accessory brings our favorite wintertime luxury detail into play: fur. Much like a fur coat, a good chair is timeless. It brings both comfort and style to a room and will be anchor of relaxation while offering an edgy, classic, sense of style and luxury. The suede brown material exudes a Southwestern feel that will likely fit in with your other pieces, and the fur detailing provides a touch of unique elegance. Our suggestion to style this piece would be to try to use bold, eclectic accessories and warm colors that will compliment the tone and texture of this exquisite armchair and turn your living room into a subtly sophisticated sanctuary.
Our second favorite piece is sure to house your favorite holiday pastimes; a gorgeous armoire perfect for storing and displaying vintage wines and spirits. This neutral toned armoire is constructed of both Koa and Primavera woods and inlaid bone with hand scrimshawed detailed pattern. A beautiful bar cabinet sure to fit all your functional entertaining needs with its versatility but impress all your family and friends at your holiday gatherings. Because of its individuality and custom detailing, place this piece somewhere it’ll stand out. (Functionality tip: it’ll make your favorite wine more accessible that way too.)

You’ll want to show off a little personality for the time of the year your family is most likely to get together. We go big at La Maison for the holidays so be sure to stop by our showroom for these two featured pieces and for many other pieces as well. Bring home something magical.
Interior design can speak volumes about your personality when given the chance, and one of the biggest purchases you’ll make for your home is the sofa. Like many things in this era of endless choices, there seems to be an infinite amount of options when it comes to finding the perfect sofa that is not only functional but beautiful. Since this is one of the biggest purchases you’ll make for your home we want you to consider how to best utilize your space.
Generally when designing a living space, you’ll start by taking into consideration the sizing of your living room and the function you want the sofa to primarily serve. If your living room has limited space, consider a charming two seater that won’t overpower your space. The two seater not only maximizes your living area but also can fulfill even the most luxurious of styles. If you have a little more room to spare, an L shaped sofa is a good option for filling a lot of space with one piece. This shaped sofa is also ideal for dividing a more open room into concrete areas of entertainment. This sofa we have featured in our showroom is not only gorgeous but functional in keeping the main area of your living space in focus.
With every great center piece comes great audience pieces. Adding another smaller sofa to a large space or incorporating colorful ottomans or a chic coffee table can take your sofa style to the next level of personal design. Aesthetic is important when bringing together your living room but be sure not to skimp on functionality when it comes to deciding on what pieces to bring home. Our pieces offer the best of both worlds so be sure to stop by our showroom for the next piece that’ll bring more of ‘you’ into your living room.
Looking to add a little edginess to your new space? Tired of prim and posh? With the right touch, there are so many luxurious ways to create a ‘heavy metal’ look. Forget nay sayers that say you shouldn’t mix your metals,that’s the way of the past. Here at La Maison we have everything you need to mix your metals in marriage bliss. Gold, brass, silver and copper – with the right touch they can add edginess to any style.
Lovers of interior design know that metallics aren’t just for the bold of heart. Metals can be mixed into the styles of those who love traditional, rustic or even the shabby-chic of us out there. They can also add intrigue and gorgeous texture throughout your home and the more contemporary designers love a good metallic edge these days.
Contemporary styling doesn’t have to necessarily be cold and bleak. Those looking to add just a light touch can decorate using brass or gold light fixtures or nickel or chrome. Adding accessories with warm metal tones such as plated picture frames, a stunning plated mirror, or even something as simple as gold accented pillows can take the chill off of your space and radiate warmth. You’ll get a huge impact if you marry cool metals like silver with a warmer ones such as copper or brass. An oak colored coffee table is complimented with La Maison’s cooper* plated sculptures. Embellish your grey accent wall with colors that compliment the muted tones.
La Maison Interiors showcases so many vibrant colors, but we also have pieces intended to accent dark and understated tones. Chrome and silver pair beautifully with greys and whites, but brass accent tones will warm up these cool hues and add a unique ‘pop’ to your space.
Metal accessorizing is huge for the winter season. Warm gold copper accents, cool and sophisticated silver and stainless steel looks; you have countless options. So if you’re ready to integrate this ‘hot’ trend into your home, then come see our master showroom. We hope to inspire you with gorgeous ideas and give you luxurious furniture to complete any look.
Designers often see homeowners make the same mistakes with home decor purchases, and it always ends up the same. Impulse buys turn into returns as the newfound treasure simply does not fit the style aesthetic of the home. So what went wrong? Interior design takes a keen eye and an insight to style. Elements such as lighting, placement, scale and size effect the look and feel of your space immensely. The most common mistakes made when designing a living room can make a break your space. Feeling comfortable while also achieving a luxury look and feel is why La Maison is here to help. From floor to ceiling we can help you create the perfect space you’ve always dreamed of for your luxury Scottsdale home.
Design with your personal style at the forefront. Taking a page from your favorite interior design magazine or a showroom setup can be misleading. We’re getting back to the basics of design to give you a foundation to create a space that fits your needs to get you closer to that dream home design. When you’re overwhelmed by color palettes, light fixtures, fabrics and luxury furniture it can be difficult to pick and choose what you really love and what you really hate. How is the large modern floral print pattern working with the gold accents of your sofa? Ask yourself questions you might not want to ask and don’t be afraid to scrap an idea if it just isn’t working. Instead of replicating a room’s look and feel draw inspiration from the items that grab your attention the most. Interior design mistakes happen, but with our savvy advice, we hope yours become far and few between!
Once you have chosen the wall color, decided on a design style and are happy with the direction start shopping for accent pieces. We love adding mirrors to a small space, or brightening up a room with little to no natural light with bright primary colors and bold patterns. Do not over do it on the accent pieces; be choosy and choose wisely. Avoid clutter in your space at all costs. If you like two pieces, use them interchangeably for added visual interest throughout the year. Layer accent pieces to create some depth. If you love to mix and match patterns and prints do so with your design smarts in mind. Luxury furniture is so much fun to shop for, especially at La Maison! We suggest sticking with a similar shape or silhouette to keep the look and feel cohesive to showcase a good flow throughout the space. An oversized leather sofa does not coincide well with a tailored and dainty arm chair peppered with embellishments. If you have a large space, arrange the furniture accordingly, and the same goes for a small space. Purchase luxury furniture that infuses your personal style too! If you absolutely love the way relaxed furniture looks choose fabric prints or patterns with the same look and feel.
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes either! If you like two fabrics that contrast try to identify why you like them both. There are always opportunities to evolve your personal interior design style. Experiment with various styles, colors and decor to get a feel for what you love most. Keep comfort and easy luxury in mind when choosing all the gorgeous pieces to fill your home with and of course our team of talented interior designers are here to guide you when you’re not sure where to go next. Interior design mistakes happen, but with our savvy advice, we hope yours become far and few between. La Maison has a multitude of furniture and accessories for your home, and we look forward to helping you design the home of your dreams.
A little bit of relief from the steamy summer months is on its way! Take a cue from the weather and cool off with style ideas we know you are going to love. La Maison designers are especially excited about this month’s new arrivals! Why? We’re obsessed with all that is luxurious, and we promise to keep comfort and versatility at the forefront of our style ideas.This month we’re bringing you timeless pieces to inspire a brand new look in your home.
Chairs are the basis of a room, the anchor to comfort if you will. We’re psyched about two sets of armchairs this month. Tailored for a luxurious look, the subtle detail in the design work shows off, while also exuding an effortless look and feel. Often associated with the classic choice for a gentlemen’s club, enhanced with velvet covered throw pillows, leather armchairs have become a common stylish option with clean lines that fit perfectly in any luxury home. What’s our suggestion? Try neutral colors to compliment a myriad of bold colors for a modern and masculine mood. The simplicity of these brown leather chairs add depth and sophistication with a touch of charm.
Regardless of the season, florals soften every space. Just a pinch of floral has the ability to transform a simple monochromatic look into a stylish pad that’s both elegant and contemporary. Floral stands out on its own, which means you don’t have to overdo it. We love these velvet lounge chairs! Both versatile and in a refined style, these chairs are modern and chic; similar to the leather chairs above, the neutral color base complements most color palettes. The right armchair has a specific shape and style. It exudes a mood or feeling and offers just the right amount of elegance to the living room or even in your bedroom. Consider how you can incorporate them with the rest of your interior, and of course, take time to sit in it because comfort is really number one here.
Coffee tables, wine tables, center tables.. we love tables! If it’s one item that can’t be overused because of its versatility. La Maison luxury furniture showroom has all the best items to kick of September the right way. Come in and see a gorgeous chrome colored coffee table; perfect for a romantic crisp aesthetic. Change up your home with a pop of color, and achieve a balance between beauty and function. Add just the right amount of dimension to your space with a centerpiece decoration for a strong focal point in your space.
We’re always excited to talk about new pieces in our showroom that really emit the luxurious style that La Maison represents. Our showroom has a ton of beautiful items that fit any style. We always love seeing you, so stop by for more buzz about these and other arrivals this month. Happy styling!
Seasons change and therefore, so should our styles right? Just as we change out our wardrobes to match seasonal changes, we should do the same for our homes. As we transition from summer, fall design trends adapt to holiday festivities and aesthetics of the season. Rich jewel tones, warm accents and lush fabrics are always found in La Maison’s showroom, but as the fall season comes closer, transitioning those styles throughout your home will create a luxurious fall atmosphere. The change needn’t be complicated or dramatic; the smallest changes can make all the difference.
When decorating for the summer months, you want cool and refreshing tones in your home. Of course you always want to have a refreshing and comfortable feel in your home, but as we transition into fall, we see a lot more warm wood pieces, modern metallic pieces for texture and layering happening. Autumnal colors present your home in a cozier way during the cooler days of fall. A popular style trend for fall is versatility and layering, and you don’t have to completely renovate your home to succeed in this look! For layering and texturing, think lush blankets with throw pillows for gorgeous color combinations. Beds are perhaps the easiest thing in the home to change for the seasons- blankets and faux fur throw to really welcome the season. Mixing up metallic and warm wood pieces in your space adds visual interest and a hint of luxury. Don’t shy away from mixing materials together in fear you will have a room of random pieces that blend different styles. Combinations of metals, wood, and fabrics that don’t overpower one another keep a consistent sophisticated and luxurious design element. A romantic component to the fall season that is different than summer is the shortness in daylight; the sun sets earlier and so the use of candles becomes more amorous. Lighting is essential in creating a lush and luxurious atmosphere: candles are the perfect accessory for any home aesthetic. Aside from candles throughout your home, changing up your lighting features is an easy way to curate a soft and relaxed ambiance. One rule of thumb we want to note is measuring your space for the right size fixture. A chandelier is a timeless piece, and a beautiful focal point for your dining room. Speaking of dining rooms, there is no better space to represent the seasonal changes; holiday parties anyone?! Bringing natural elements into your home is a beautiful and easy way to incorporate fall decor. La Maison has luxurious tabletop accessories that will continue the trend of layering and texturing throughout your home. Warm colors are key. Think burnt orange, golden yellow, jewel toned blues and greens, and maroons for luxury. These present a lovely holiday palette as well as everyday comfort colors to feel cozy all the time.
No matter your favorite style trend, whether it matches the fall or summer season, adding a few touches of the luxurious fall season decor in your home will make the season all the more exciting. La Maison loves to incorporate trends from various sessions and design aesthetics, so we are always excited to help your home become luxurious. Visit our designers this week to find more inspiration for this fall season and do some interior shopping!
When decorating for your master bedroom, it’s easy to find yourself having a case of the bedroom blahs. The bedroom is one of the rooms you can have the most fun decorating. It’s the room where you spend a lot of your time, so it should have a lot of time put into making it luxurious and comfortable . A favorite bedroom piece of ours is the headboard. A headboard not only ties the aesthetic together, but it creates visual interest in the room. The purpose of this blog is to ignite some inspiration for you, so that you may take your bedroom to the highest level of luxury.
A headboard takes a chic and stylish bedroom and makes it sophisticated no matter the style you aim to present. Like any piece of furniture, your headboard can be done in many ways. Rather than using a traditional headboard, consider options to make your bedroom really pop with a creative and chic headboard. Unique statement headboards are fantastic because they draw the eye to an exciting focal point in the room. As always, artwork is a ‘yes’ for any room in a home. It ups the luxurious aesthetic and is a beautiful way to express your personal style. Hanging a large piece of art above a bed isn’t a headboard, but it is a stylish option. To cover more surface area, gather your favorite works of art and assemble them in a collage to create the look of a headboard. The headboards that we offer in our showroom fulfill creative styles; mirrored headboards, organic wood and gorgeous upholstered ones. Mirrors make a room appear larger and create more dimension. A mirrored headboard contrasted with warm, romantic colored pillows is unique as well as luxurious.
If you aim for a natural and simple style in your bedroom, but also aim to have luxury and modish ambiance, we recommend organic wood features. It has the potential to give your bedroom a unique look that is also chic and brings a new element of luxury into your home. A headboard also doesn’t have to be one you buy or create. Windows as functional backdrops can be a gorgeous area to place your bed. If presented with the opportunity to utilize a window in your bedroom, flank the window with curtains, place matching table lamps with similar color scheme and you have a stylish alternative to a headboard.
Regardless of appearance or material your headboard should accentuate your style to further highlight the concept of the room. Headboards are known to be an omnipresent feature in a bedroom, and a certain one theme can be overdone and boring. An unexpected headboard could be what your bedroom needs. At La Maison, we not only focus on having luxurious furniture for you to showcase in your home but also provide ideas and ignite inspiration for your home to become something of daydreams.
The color blue is having a big moment in the world of interior design. From deep shades of indigo to pale icy blues, this is a color for the summer season! Being a color of such versatile shades and effects, blue is the perfect color to exude any feel in your home, whether you’re looking for calm and cozy or romantic and luxurious. We’re here to tell you how easy it is to incorporate any shade of this season’s favored color into any space. Like a glass of fine wine, blue can be full bodied and it works for masculine as well as feminine aesthetics to create luxurious designs in your home.
Calming as well electric, but always stylish, shades of blue mix well together and as a statement color in a room; it blends splendidly. Using blue as your base wall color, there are definitely things you should know to achieve your perfect look. The beauty of using this color is that it can create different effects in rooms depending both on the hue and the complimenting pieces. It works well with other warm and cool colors; burgundies, browns, warm yellows or cool greens. Darker hues of blue such as indigo and midnight blues come toward you, so they help make the room feel cozier and perhaps much more luxurious.Use warmer colors in a dining room or master bedroom; midnight blue reflects and absorbs light very well. To exude a truly luxurious and seductive experience, bathe your master bedroom, dining room or living room with candlelight. Cooler tones of blue are commonly seen in bathrooms or offices. Turquoise, cobalt and ice blue exude calmness as well, but in a different way that presents a focused feel, which is why it is so commonly used in offices. These hues have yellow tones in them so they back away making a space appear bigger. For a bathroom, where a crisp clean aesthetic is often desired and so these shades of blue are perfect to work with.
Wall paint isn’t the only way to bring color into your room, as you may already have guessed being a design lover. Using blue accent pieces are just as effective in creating a luxurious aesthetic for your home. Blue works of art, blue painted desks or end tables, pale blue curtains and loads of blue hydrangeas are a few gorgeous ideas that we love. Art is always a wonderful way to incorporate a theme into your home. Using abstract blue works of art above a television or as a headboard is a funky yet sophisticated way to use this color and artwork. Using ranges of blue in the same room with your furniture and walls should not be shied away from! Using the same color is not overwhelming unless you let it be. By adding hints of green to break up the shades of blue, you can add a warm note to your palette of restful blues.
La Maison is a lover of all colors, but we were especially excited to talk about this beloved color this month because it is so fun to use! We have a range of warm and cool colors including blue that will help you create your dream home and transform any room from drab to fab. Come by our showroom to see more luxury designs as well as ideas on how to utilize this gorgeous color.
Defining an interior design style that fits your personality, love of design and for your home is a gradual process. It might be difficult at first if it’s your first home decoration or you seem to love a myriad of styles. A good rule of thumb is to think about style as an umbrella term. Your interior design style should encompass many things in your lifestyle; what music do you listen to? What are your favorite places to travel to? What books inspire you?
However you choose to design your home, we suggest looking to the style that fits your personality. Go beyond the limitations of your lifestyle to infuse a fresh creativity into your space. We know what you’re thinking: there are so many ways to define your style, how is it possible to choose one way to express it? Consider some words that describe your style as a whole. Why choose a few words? This makes it easier to incorporate a variety of creative outlets; fresh, current, hip, modern, shabby chic, rustic country. At La Maison, our style is anchored by luxury and glamour, however we have collection that will really catch your eye. Combining two design styles together, for example, you have a gorgeous vintage chandelier and a few art displays and photographs. Instead of using a high-end dining set and glamorous chairs, go for a worn rustic wood table and modern chairs that could be easily reupholstered to change up the look when you want.
Go through what you have- what is your favorite piece of furniture? What is the best color theme of your area rugs? What is the missing piece to your style puzzle? The best advice we could possibly give to these question is to not just throw anything and everything together. Designing your style shouldn’t be overthought, but it also shouldn’t be a game of tetris- go with what works for you and your space! La Maison has many gorgeous styles of luxury furniture from modern to transitional to contemporary to old world vintage. Let us help you finish your interior design style puzzle and stop at our showroom this weekend.
