Fresh Ideas for Your Home

Adding a piano will create

harmony in your decor.

It's a beautiful statement that adds rhythm to a room.

A piano is the ultimate piece of furniture to “make” a room, even if no one in your household plays it! A piano adds elegance, class and sophistication to any setting and any décor, from traditional and elegant to contemporary and modern.


Pianos come in many shapes, sizes, colors and styles; from the largest grand pianos
to more petite baby grand and even smaller upright styles.


  • A black grand piano is classic; with white walls and flooring around it, it pumps up the drama.

  • A polished wood finished piano is perfect to complement your furniture and flooring and brown hues in your rugs, upholstery and draperies.

  • A white lacquer piano is also quite stunning.


Before you purchase a piano, think carefully about its size relative to the size of your room because a piano does take up a lot of space! Then think of the practical issue of lighting. It’s good to have a table lamp sitting on the piano or a floor lamp nearby to illuminate sheet music.


Then think about the wall art you’d like near your piano. Music-related art is always fun, such as framed concert posters, photographs of musical instruments, pen-and-ink drawings of composers or abstract art showing musical themes. Make sure artwork is hung at the right height above a grand piano so you can see it when the top is open or partially open.


Want a new bold and beautiful piece to set the tone in your living room? Just add a piano!
