  • Colours To Inspire An Oriental Themed Living Space

    If you are looking to upgrade your living room in 2018, then an oriental design is definitely a theme you should consider. The rich colours used to create a far-eastern style can be a daunting break from a standard neutral backdrop, but the rewards are well worth it.

    Read on to discover some of the most popular colours used in an oriental living area, and the impact they can have on your home's appearance and your mood.

    Ocean Blue

    Ocean or sky blue is the colour of trust and honesty and helps to bring a sense of clarity to your life, so it is ideal for using in the rooms you spend the most time. Having one or two pieces of furniture in this colour will also help to introduce some peace and relaxation into the room environment.

    Because of its bright nature, you do not want to go overboard – instead, choose your products wisely – side tables or console units are a subtle way to display this colour.

    Rich Yellow

    Oriental design is famed for its use of floral patterns, and these often include a rich yellow or muted orange shade. Both are happy colours that are ideal to add to a retro or rustic-style home, and can help to create an authentic shabby-chic ambience. Again, like ocean blue, it is a colour that should be used sparingly.

    Aged sideboards or storage boxes look amazing with yellow floral art – just take a look at our limited edition hand-painted tukang sideboard! Another benefit of yellow is that it brings originality and positive energy into the living space.

    Deep Blue

    If ocean blue is a little too bright for your taste, then dark blue can be a good alternative. It still creates a cooling, tranquil atmosphere but is a little more subdued. Dark blue is also a more practical colour that is useful in areas where you work.

    If part of your living space has a home office, then choosing a dark blue desk could be a clever choice. Alternatively, a chest of drawers also looks impressive.

    Gold & Copper

    Perhaps one of the most famous elements of the oriental style is the use of gold or copper colours, especially for room accessories. Displaying lanterns, lamps, or mirrors with a gold design is sure to inspire a far-eastern ambience.

    Gold is associated with achievement and elegance, and adds a luxurious touch to otherwise bland backgrounds. Our Lara gold mirror in combination with the hammered table lamp will draw the eye to this wonderful colour.

  • Furniture That Feels Like The Forest

    When Jimmy Ioannou founded Puji in 2004, his journey in creating spectacular, eco-friendly
    furniture began. 13 years later, the company has grown into one of the UK's leading independent furniture retailers, yet the ethos and drive remains the same.

    Using reclaimed teak wood, the products are hand-crafted by local artisans in their Indonesian
    workshops, and the end result is bespoke, limited-edition designs that bring a natural ambience into the home environment.

    For each room of the house, there are beautiful items to be found, which are guaranteed to stand out from the crowd.

    Living Space

    The Belokan Rustic Coffee Table is a feature piece in the living room collection. Curvaceous,
    twisted and mysterious, it has been carved from teak root into a stunning product. A definite head-turner, and functional coffee table to host any family or friends who visit. The simple, yet elegant glass table top can be lifted off for easy cleaning.

    Dining Room

    To give the dining area a unique appearance, the Reclaimed Teak Hanging Wine Rack adds
    character and warmth to the room design. Aged reclaimed teak wood, combined with iron bottle fittings, provides a rustic accessory that can hold up to 8 bottles of wine at a time. As each item is individually hand-made, it can be guaranteed that every piece is unique.

    Office Furniture

    Natural, earthy products that bring the forest into the home, Decorative Teak Pots give extra storage options and can also be used to hold plants or dried grasses. To preserve the valuable teak plantations in Indonesia, reclaimed wood is again used to construct these items. You can almost feel the history in each piece of timber!

    Hallway Features

    An amazing table that could adorn a hallway or an office. The Maisarah Carved Teak Console is a truly inspiring and durable item that will last for many years to come.

The flat, varnished table top is ideal for displaying photos, ornaments, or even a subtle table lamp.

    Purchasing any of these items from Puji's furniture range is a guilt-free experience – recycling
    wood rather than chopping down trees helps preserve the environment. There is also a surprising health benefit, as science shows that natural scenes within the home help to reduce stress and boost positive thoughts.
