What to Look for in Egyptian Furniture

If you are looking for a way to bring Egypt into your home, you may be wondering where to start.  The key to accomplishing a good Egyptian home decor theme is to focus on key pieces, rather than redoing an entire room Pharaoh style.  Here we talk about how to keep the Egyptian theme simple and stay on budget with Egyptian furniture that will incorporate all of the elements you need for a truly royal touch.

Palace of Ramses Egyptian Occasional TableEgyptian art is one way to use an Egyptian theme without going overboard.  All you need to do is add a wall sculpture here or there and you set the tone in any room.  Egyptian tables accomplish the same goal, and work as focal points in a room to add an instant Egyptian theme.  When you are looking for Egyptian tables, you want the look of authenticity, without the budget.

Gold is a key marker of the Egyptian era, so this is something you definitely want to look for when choosing Egyptian furniture.  You can however find pieces that have gold accents, or faux gold finish to accomplish the same regal effect, without the same regal budget.  As well, you don’t want to have more than one gold piece in a room, otherwise the theme will embody the Buckingham Palace which in itself screams overboard, unless of course, that is your actual home address.

An Egyptian theme is easy to create with one or two accent pieces.  You can supplement these with smaller items that complement each other.  It is easy to go overboard, so resist the urge and decorate room by room until you have the effect you are looking for.
