International Museum Day and Art this May 18th

Have you ever been to a museum before and thought to yourself – there should be a day where we celebrate places like this! For those of you who do not know – there is!

(The World Museum Community) established International Museum Day in 1977 to encourage public awareness on the role of museums in the development of society, and ever since then the worldwide community of museums celebrates International Museum Day on May 18 every year.

Each year there is a theme, and this year the theme of the International Museum Day is Museums and Memory. Museums conserve memories and tell stories and they have, in their collections, several objects that are vital to the memory of the areas we live in. Many of them are delicate, some endangered, and they all need special care and protection. International Museum Day 2011 will be an opportunity to discover and re-discover your individual and collective memory.

The purpose, as a whole- of International Museum Day is to make communities around the world aware of their heritage and aware of where they came from as a people, and it is also to help share all that the museums have to offer. Museums, no matter which one you go to, all have the common purpose of sharing with the masses the different art and art styles that have come about in this huge world of ours.

What is the purpose of art though? The purpose of art is to communicate ideas and to create a sense of beauty in even the darkest of places. If you are looking to accomplish either one of these things, any type of art that speaks to who you are as a person would definitely help you do this.

At J. Douglas Design not only can we help you figure out how to incorporate this art into your home, but we also proudly feature and use the artwork of Phoenix Art Group in our designs. So not only can we give you the type of home furnishing and home accents needed to make your home truly yours, but we also have an insight into what kind of art can help you set yourself apart from the rest.

Taylor King Furniture - a perfect style for your home

Do you ever go into a furniture store looking for a specific “something” that you just cannot seem to find? Then, when you can’t find it, do you go home in frustration? Well, let Taylor King Furniture help you with our many own “do it yourself” styles in multiple different collections, where you get to design your own style and seating arrangements!

In the Taylor King Collection you can see that we have something called “Taylor Made,” which is our way of telling you that we have what you need to make the furniture that you want in only five steps. First you have to choose between “Standard” or “Continental” Depth. Then you choose which back you would like, and then follows the frame, then the arms. After all of that is done, you choose your base and you’re finished!

To get more specific, if you are looking at the King’s Road collection, you’ll see that we have something called “Cozy Creations” which helps you design any couch, chair, or loveseat into what you want in only four easy steps! First, you choose your back cushion, then pick the perfect seating arrangement from a single seat up to a full sectional. Then you get to choose the arm style, and lastly pick a base option. Depending on your taste, Cozy Creations can be designed for sophisticated elegance or everyday casual.

If you’re honestly tired of trying to look for something that can just not be found, make it yourself with Taylor King Furniture, which just so happens to be one of J. Douglas’s featured lines, which means you know that you’re getting the best quality of fine furniture around the Dallas area!
