A Season for Sophistication

You know that the Christmas season is in the air when September comes and the stores start decorating and the malls churn out Christmas carols left and right. At OUR HOME, Christmas is right on time as September ushers in a sophisticated and stylish season. This month, as the yuletide ushers in, OUR HOME lends a sophisticated touch to Christmas as it goes gold and black. The sophistication of black and the elegance of gold mix and marry to evoke a yuletide mood that elicits drama, style and a certain refinement.


The style and drama can be seen throughout the store as stark black Christmas trees are donned and decked with gold ornaments. Balls, trinkets, garlands and wreaths in different shades of gold as well as lights that flicker adorn the Christmas trees and provide an exciting contrast that can be compared to twinkling starts against a dark night. The trees then set the stage and prep the mood for what’s to follow – settings and vignettes that epitomize the regalia of the season amidst an air of class and refinement.


The entrance focal welcomes guests and immediately elicits the spirit of Christmas as black trees with gold trimmings flank a living room setting that spells elegance yet maintains a sense of yuletide frivolity. A two-seater /three-seater combination of sofas set the stage for the entrance teaser. Donned in black velvet upholstery with tufting, these pieces provide an elegant feel to the yuletide mood as gold throw pillows serve as accents reinforcing the festive ambiance. Replicas of a pair of Le Corbusier’s Siege Grand Comfort loungers act as accent in black leather while center, side and console tables in mirror finish cap off the look. Gold and brass accessories punctuate the tabletops while a pair of lamps in black shades with champagne colored glass bases illuminate. A shag rug in gold and brown tints and shades anchor the setting while a gold-framed mirror adds shine and shimmer.


To the left, a leather sofa combination dominates the vignette. Black leather seats and back lend a modern and contemporary feel while gold and brass colored pillows act as a foil and provide the tinsel and the glitter to compliment the black Christmas trees, this time with gold hollies and berries. Black curtains in heavy drapes provide an additional luxe factor while gold sheer curtains add to the elegance. Behind, a chest of shelves is littered with a combination of gold and glass Christmas and contemporary ornaments and accessories. A glass topped table with stainless steel legs reinforces the modern appeal while a gray area rug adds a soft touch.


The main window display echoes the same elegance, style and sophistication of the Christmas season of gold and black. The focal point is a dining table for four that mirrors the festive atmosphere of the holidays. A unique all-glass table for four becomes the centerpiece of the whole ensemble. But instead of typical dining chairs, a black velvet loveseat and two high back wing chairs also in black velvet complement the setting. On top, the table is adorned with white flowers accentuated with gold Christmas trimmings. Flanking the table on both sides are the dramatic Christmas trees with gold flowers and trinkets.


Radiating from the dining vignette on both sides, the living room settings echo the same class and refined look but this time, sofas in crème and beige predominate. The opposite is applied as black and gold pillows act as accents and give off a stark contrast to the soft beiges of the sitting pieces. Center tables and consoles are in glass mirroring the glitz and the glitter of the season as they become the stage were gold and crystal Christmas decors and ornaments are displayed to reinforce the feel of the season.


Beds with black leather tufted headboards on both ends serve as anchors in the main windows. Bed linens and sheets in deep gold and bright mustard evoke a stark contrast that spells luxury and comfort. Night tables are replete with black and gold lamps and again black Christmas trees with jewels and tinsel in gold frame the focals on both sides. Curtains are in gold fabrics that evoke formality and opulence with black sheers for a touch of unique style. Art works are chosen to fit well with the black and gold theme and provide a creative backdrop against the solid panels.


Christmas comes early to OUR HOME and it is felt in the air as the whole store celebrates the “ber” months with glamor, class, style and elegance. This yuletide season, have a feel of the season but do it differently with a touch of sophistication. Go black and gold and splurge with accessories and furniture that are a delight to have not just in the Christmas season but all year round.
