The Luxury of Quality Pieces

We are a little over one week away from our ASID Showrise project opening night and we are getting all the details finalized to install on Monday.  I’ve mentioned one of our sponsors, Laura Rathe Fine Art in The Luxury of Urban Living last week.  Today, I want to highlight another sponsor, Bo Concept Houston at 4302 Westheimer Road, 77027 (713-877-1900).

Quality of line, texture and form defines good contemporary design; much more so than traditional design.  Contemporary design, since it is not a widely popular as traditional design (in Houston at least), is also not as widely available either.  It’s not like you can pop into a Hobby Lobby store and pick up great contemporary accessories.  You really have to set out to find those pieces.  Bo Concept Houston is one of those retailers who showcases luxurious contemporary furnishings at an outstanding value.

This is one of the pieces we have selected for the Showrise.  This room divider in a chocolate-brown is truly a versatile piece.  I love the asymmetry here and that we can style it to look stunning from any view in the room.  Often times, we need pieces of furniture like this to help divide a large space into two different areas, like a living room & dining room.

Another group of furniture that Bo Concepts is great for is wall systems.  Sometimes, hi-rise homes  and condos come with their unique set of challenges, soaring ceilings, but no storage.  It is up to me to find ways to accent the positive in a way that adds usefulness.  This line, Volani, is one of several styles Bo Concepts has.  I love that the pieces are modular and that you can use the pop of color to have a great impact on the space.

I’d be doing you an injustice if I didn’t mention the lighting that they have to offer.  Since our unit and the show is temporary, we needed to improve the lighting, but were not able to make any permanent changes.  What a better way to add style and lighting than with this fixture?  This image doesn’t show the true size of this floor lamp, the fixture is 73″ H with a 24″ diameter shade.  What you also can’t see is the quality of  the shade.  There is a warm golden glow that comes through with this black shade. This is one of those things you just need to see for your self to truly appreciate.

We’d love to see you at the show! Our unit at The Commerce Towers (914 Main – downtown) is “Modern Sophistication”, and the show is open 11am to 5pm – Feb. 13-14 & Feb. 20-21.

Luxury For The Home believes that true luxury is not about ostentation or expense.  It is about simplicity. Sanctuary. Comfort.  It’s the beauty that happens when everything, including you, has its own ideal space.
