Take a Seat: The Top 5 Chairs to Revive Your Space this Summer


Summer is here, and adding a unique, new piece to your home, office or client’s business is just what is needed to add life and beauty to your space. 


Chairs are versatile. They can be a decorative piece to add style to a space, or a functional piece for your client’s establishment. A chair can be simply stated and serene or bold and energizing. They can flow with the ambiance of the room or act as a focal point, inspiring new conversations. A single chair can change the entire energy of a space.


At Personal Space, we carefully curate each chair made by our award-winning design partners. Check out the list of our favorite chairs to bring that extra inspiration to your space this summer.

Nature is Calling: Bringing the Outdoors, In

Nature is Calling: Bringing the Outdoors, In


Being outdoors and connecting with nature is a magical, intangible experience no matter where you are. Whether it’s in your own backyard or in the jungles of the Amazon, you’re bound to feel more alive when you’re in the great outdoors


It’s almost impossible to be outdoors at all times (if you’ve figured out how to, let us know!). From work and meetings to dining and even just sleeping, we spend a great deal of time indoors. However, with the right furniture and decor, you can fill your home, office or client project with natural elements, capturing the essence of the outdoors in every interior space. By incorporating more of the natural world in these spaces, you’re likely to experience an improved sense of wellbeing, productivity and overall happiness.


To bring the outdoors, in, look for pieces made from the following natural materials:


Wood or teak: From its earthy color to its natural scent, wood is a common and simple—yet enchanting—way to include the outdoors in your everyday decor. From bedside tables to functional yet stylish seating, modern wood furniture is a classic way to incorporate nature into your space. 


Bamboo: Bamboo is considered one of the fastest growing plants on earth and is one of the best renewable resources on the planet. Not to mention, its physical appearance can make it feel like you’re existing in the middle of a jungle. Check out our bamboo wall art to take your room to the next level, like the Curved Bamboo Wall Feature, Bamboo Roll Wall Feature, Bamboo Poll Wall Feature and more! We also carry several bamboo living and dining pieces.


Rattan: Like bamboo, rattan furniture and accessories give indoor spaces the perfect outdoor vibe that allows individuals to feel connected to nature. With its long, sturdy vines, rattan not only is a logical choice for building furniture, it’s also a trendy one. Feel one with nature as you sleep with this Rattan Bedhead, get comfortable in the Khalan Rattan Chair (as we like to call it, the jungle chair) or mix and mingle with this Rattan Mingle Bench


When designing an indoor space, there are several ways to bring nature indoors and use  interior design to help improve wellbeing. Not to mention, it’s the sustainable choice! Learn more about how Personal Space uses natural materials to help our clients create their dream space.
