Black Friday And Cyber Monday Deals On Must-Have Furniture And Decor


The season of spending is officially upon us. According to a report from Mastercard SpendingPulse, retail sales are predicted to hit their highest rate and that E-commerce sales will be up 104%, compared to five years ago. Part of the reason for this increase is that it’s one of the best times of the year to save on those expensive items for the home like large appliances, mattresses, furniture, and décor. So if you’re still debating one of these purchases—don’t. Former Saks Fifth Avenue CEO and Mastercard senior advisor Steve Sadove explained to me why it’s time to take out the credit cards. “It’s the day that gets shoppers in the emotional frame of mind to search for deals and make purchases, and that continues through December. In fact, Mastercard SpendingPulse anticipates that 4 out of the 10 biggest shopping days will be in December. Black Friday weekend is an important weekend for furniture with some of the best deals of the year. I would say the same for mattresses as well.”

Here are some of the most stylish home goods on sale to kick off holidays.


This festive season, spruce up your home with right decor

 Spruce up your home with right decor

Diwali preparations have kick-started in full swing. This is the time when we pay our most of the attention to the house decor. Most importantly, if you are planning to play host to Diwali parties this year, then add glamour and festive vibes to your little cosy abode with these tips.

* A splash of colour: While loud colours make a traditional impact, pastel shades or ice-cream colours as they are also known, are trending festive tones this year. Choose your preferred palate in advance so that you can choose the right accessories to match. Break the pastels shades with strong hues like navy, olive, fuchsia, saffron or crimson to bring your space to life.

* The Diwali supper: Table setting is a must if you’re looking to make a lasting impression on your guests. Add a simple floral arrangement on the centre of your dining table and take a few moments to set the right cutlery. Floating candles into glass bowls filled with water make for a unique table centrepiece.

* Statement furniture: Get your living room into the right mood for endless hours of conversation and fun happy moments shared between your loved ones. Rearrange a few furniture pieces, add a few poufs, a coffee table and playful rug to add a little festive delight. Knitted throw pillows add a fun texturized element to your couches while aroma diffusers with a scent of sandalwood can add an aura of vibrant calm.

If you are investing in a new sofa set, go in for something that is multi-functional giving you the freedom of living, dynamic and can be easily placed in a variety of formats bringing a cosy touch to your living room ecosystem.

* Debonair decor: This festive season reminisce the golden era with vintage themed décor that will leave your guests enthralled. Start off by opting for carefully crafted antique gramophones and oversized model telephones influenced by ethnic art. Uplift this look further with Rajasthani Jharokas as well as silken upholstery woven together in fine threads of gold and voila.

* Spiffy luminance: Lights are a festive essential that enrich the fervour further. For a modish theme in the living room, pendant lighting is an ideal fitment whereas in the bedroom, one can add vibrant table lamps in perky hues to give the space a tinge of chic. Illuminate the nooks and corners of your home with floral scented candles and add intricately carved metallic diyas.

By Online Desk

On Thursday it was revealed that IPL defending champs Chennai Super Kings (CSK) has retained star cricketer Harbhajan Singh.

The veteran Indian cricketer took to Twitter and shared his excitement on being retained by one of the most successful teams in IPL history.

Samsung Submits Patent for Infinity-O Style Displays, Galaxy S10 Might Sport Punch Style Hole Cut-out

Samsung’s next flagship offering, the Samsung Galaxy S10 which will likely release sometime in the first quarter of next year is going to be a big step up from the previous phone. While the Samsung Galaxy S9 was a progressive update from a device earlier, many are expecting a breakthrough in terms of design when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S10. We have already seen a lot of renders, rumours, leaks and speculations about the Galaxy S10 and the stream doesn’t seem to be stopping. At the recently held Developers Conference, Samsung showed off its different notch implementations which are the Infinity-U, Infinity-V and Infinity-O displays, with the cut-outs being of the same shape as the respective letters. Also, a patent application image of a new Infinity-O display has surfaced which points towards the possible design of the Samsung Galaxy S10.


Samsung Galaxy S10 Likely to Come with Infinity-O Display

These new patent images have been spotted courtesy of the Dutch site LetsGoDigital, which gives us a full-fledged illustration of how the Infinity-O display might look like. The Infinity-O display, as demonstrated by the new pictures will feature punch-hole style cut-out for the front-facing camera. Now we already know that Samsung is one of the rare manufacturers in the market, which has strictly decided not to implement the notch in its phone and is relying on its Infinity displays to achieve more permanent, bezel-less and edge-to-edge solution for its screens. These new patents seem to be a step ahead in this regard.

The submission comes with a lot of similar illustrations which are experimental cutouts for the Samsung Galaxy S10 hinting towards how the phone might look like. However, it’s clear that Samsung is putting a lot of emphasis on the Infinity-O display rather than anything else. The Infinity-O display which has been depicted in the pictures comes with a punch-style hole cut-out on the upper left-hand side of the device. Further, there are two designs implemented for the form factor, one with more rounded edges and the other one with slightly rounded corners. Additionally, there are also different layouts submitted with curved, square and flat displays.

Samsung to Possibly Set New Benchmark for Design

As per the report from the Dutch page, these patent applications were made to the Hague International Design System (specialising in industrial design patents), managed by the World International Property Organisation (WIPO). The images have also been uploaded to Hague’s bulletin page.

With that being said, we are now sure of one thing, although Samsung might have brought little progressive updates on to its Samsung Galaxy S9, the next flagship phone by Samsung is probably going to be a big step up concerning design and display. Also, it’s entirely possible that with such a new display design and finally a replacement for the notoriously popular notch, Samsung might kick-start a new trend for smartphone designs.

Fashion Friday: Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma and other divas are making boyfriend trend their go-to style

We love raiding our boyfriend’s closets and how. Those comfy tee-shirts, baggy denim and cosy sweaters are the one thing girls can spend their lives in. While earlier, wearing boyfriend’s clothes was something only a brave-hearted woman would do, today the trend has caught an eye of Bollywood divas and they are rocking it the way we like. Making comfort the new trend, these A-listers have time and again given some major boyfriend trend goals by their style and panache.

The oversized fashion trend has gained a lot of momentum and not just the Bollywood stars but even the designers on the international ramps are following the style rigorously and we don’t blame them, after all, it has got the best of both worlds- comfort and style.

The trend is vast and covers baggy outfits apart from boyfriend’s jeans, like oversized sweaters, blazers, shirts and a lot more. Stars like Sonam Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Anushka Sharma are sporting the look like a diva they are and are proudly owning to it. Take a look at the style files of these stars and take some major cues from their look.

Alia’s super comfy tee is a steal, while Deepika Padukone is totally stealing a pair or two from her husband Ranveer Singh’s wardrobe. Priyanka Chopra too decided to step-up her fashion game by opting for a comfortable outfit.
