Getting the lighting right in your home or apartment can make all the difference. In addition to adding an element of style to your home décor, table lamps, floor lamps, and chandeliers can supplement traditional overhead lighting and the natural light of the room to create the perfect ambiance.

Whether you’re looking for table lamps for reading, writing, or to simply brighten up a room, Star Furniture has plenty of lamps and shades to choose from. Match your home décor with our wide selection of furniture styles, including traditional, transitional, modern-contemporary, and casual. We even have an array of light fixture materials, which means you can find a match for any living room, bedroom, dining room, or home office.

Floor Lamps

When you choose the right floor lamp, you can add height, style, complexity, and light to your room. Because they tend to be lightweight and easy to move, you’ll also have more control over the lighting in your room. Plus, floor lamps and table lamps tend to have a softer and warmer light, so you can use them in tandem to create your desired ambiance. Choose from our array of floor lamp and shade styles, including multiple lamp heads, modern-contemporary spotlights, and more traditional lamp shades.

Ceiling Fixtures

Chandeliers and Pendant Lighting

Whether you choose to utilize pendant lighting or chandeliers, ceiling fixtures can add light to your room without taking up floor or table space. With ceiling fixtures, you can choose the hanging height you need, which offers additional flexibility and control to your home décor. Chandeliers also draw the eye upward and create a unique opportunity to add a flourish of style to your space.

If you’re looking to upgrade the lighting in your home or apartment, be sure to stop by one of our 11 Star Furniture stores in Houston, Austin, San Antonio, or Bryan, Texas. Our in-store interior designers can even help you find the perfect match for your current space.

Small Kitchen Ideas

Whether you’re living in a house or apartment, small kitchens can pose a lot of problems, especially when it comes to functionality and storage opportunities. These small kitchen ideas from the interior design experts at Star Furniture will help you make the most of your space.

Choose the Right Kitchen Furniture

Even if your kitchen feels cramped, there are furniture decisions you can implement to help make your space more functional. In fact, the right furniture can even create the illusion of space so your room will feel larger.

Kitchen Islands & Buffets

Creating additional space for food prep and storage is easy with the right kitchen island or buffet table. If you’re looking for extra seating and storage space, the Trisha Yearwood Coming Home 3-Piece Kitchen Island & Counter Stools might be the right choice. Not only does it come with counter seating, but the island itself has multiple drawers, two additional shelves, and a hanging rod for kitchen towels.

Dining Room Tables

While adding additional furniture to an already small kitchen might seem counterintuitive, dining room tables can actually help you better utilize the space. Counter-height tables can be especially useful for taking advantage of small spaces, as they can provide extra counter space. Plus, the height of the table can make the room appear larger.

Keep Things Organized

Keeping things organized in an intuitive way can help you make the most of your small kitchen. Consider using organization tools like hanging pot and pan holders, wall-mounted storage, and bins to help maximize your space. While things you use regularly should be easily accessible, other kitchen accessories can be stored wherever they might fit.

Plan the Perfect Furniture Arrangement

It can be tricky to find the perfect furniture arrangement to make the best of small kitchen space, but with our free Room Planner Designer Tool, you can customize the dimensions of your kitchen and try out different furniture placement without having to do any of the heavy lifting. Our team of interior designers can also help you optimize space and create the kitchen of your dreams.

If you’re looking to furnish or decorate your kitchen, visit one of our nine furniture stores throughout Houston, San Antonio, Bryan, and Austin, Texas. You can also follow our interior design blog for even more home design tips. Check us out today!

After a busy day at work, nothing beats lounging around on the couch with the people you love. It’s no surprise then that people are combining classic reclining with more modern furniture so they can enjoy reclining sectionals, sofas, loveseats, and chairs. Here are a few of our favorite reclining furniture pieces.

Reclining Sectionals

Whether you’re looking to fill a spacious living area or provide seating for a large family, reclining sectionals offer the flexibility you need to keep everyone comfortable. Choose a reclining seat when you want to spread out without taking up precious seating space on the couch. With fabric and learther options, as well as perks like power headrests, cupholders, and storage consoles, you’ll have no trouble finding the reclining sectional that’s right for you.

Reclining Sofas

Even if you don’t have the space for a sectional, reclining sofas can still help maximize your living room seating. Rather than stretching out across the couch, you can use the reclining function to lay back and relax without preventing anyone else from sitting. Choose from manual and power recliners, fabric, leather, or other materials, and an array of colors and styles.

Reclining Loveseats

Choosing the right couch for your space involves a lot of variables. Traditionally, loveseats put you in close proximity to whomever you’re sitting with at the time, and because of their size, they fit in tighter spaces. Choose from a selection of reclining loveseats, many of which have a cup holder and arm rest options for extra comfort and convenience.

Reclining Chairs

While you might think recliners belong in another era, reclining chairs have once again become trendy in interior design circles. Choosing a stylish recliner is easy, whether you’re looking for a traditional look or something hip and trendy.


Visit a Star Furniture store in Houston, San Antonio, Austin, or Bryan, Texas to find the perfect couch to take your living space to the next level. In fact, we offer complimentary in-store interior design services to help you cultivate your unique style. Visit today!
