Copenhagen Imports is a big part of the contemporary San Antonio furniture trend

We have all become familiar with our homes over the past 18 months, so much so that many of us have decided that now is the time to transform our living environments. Furniture makers feel the same, according to Graciela Soto, a Copenhagen Imports business associate with 20 years of experience. Soto says new lines like Ego Italiano represent the crisp, contemporary designs that thrill clients new and old when they start furnishing their homes. Makeover fever is in the air, she says, as many people who visit Copenhagen Imports with the intention of selecting one or two items decide to reinvent their entire home.

“People have found themselves more at home, so they want to have a more inviting and peaceful space to meet family,” says Soto, who is known for bonding closely with customers in showrooms. “We also have a lot of clients who work and study from home. Now is the perfect time to make some big changes, add accents, change the rooms, really redo everything. People are really focused on their homes, often selling and buying them to make universal changes. It is a very exciting time to work at Copenhagen Imports and help so many people manifest the setting of their dreams.

Soto advises all its clients to respect their budget, selecting one room at a time if it is more comfortable, to create a complementary environment. She highly recommends meeting with the experienced designers at Copenhagen Imports to make sure the colors and furniture will work together for many years to come.

“You want to make sure everything is going to work out no matter how often you update your space,” she says. “You never want to just throw pieces together. I have clients who like to turn things around every three years, but we should always view creating space as a long-term investment, not just a momentary, impulse decision.

Whether they choose a recliner or, as a recent customer, a 13-by-13-foot sectional, the first decision most customers make is to choose a leather or fabric upholstery. Soto says Copenhagen Imports sells more leather sofas because these modern pieces not only add sophistication and elegance, but the new materials are easy to clean without worrying about stains or other damage. Completing a sofa or sectional with a fabric-covered chair provides a great opportunity to create complementary living space.

Whatever style you prefer, Soto encourages all potential buyers to visit the Copenhagen Imports showroom before purchasing any piece of furniture. It’s not just mattresses that have a hard, soft firmness, she says; the seats also have a different firmness. When you step in to sit on a sofa or chair, you know you will be comfortable once you receive your delivery. Recliners also vary in width, an important personalized choice as to where an owner will spend thousands of hours over the life of the furniture.

“It’s like finding a jacket or a dress for a special occasion,” says Soto, “You want to make sure it fits you well. Most often, once they see and sit in a piece of furniture, they fall in love with the look and the quality. Younger people tend to fall for style, while older customers are more concerned with the comfort of a piece of furniture. It’s actually the same with dining chairs that older couples spend more time dining and having coffee, so they want a very comfortable room. I never want someone to buy something they’re not happy with after they bring it home; my priority is that my customers are satisfied in the long term.

The Margaret Power Lift recliner is a perfect example of an item that combines an elegant look with incredible comfort. Available in leather or fabric, the Margaret is available in a range of colors and patterns, the perfect accent for a new living room, den or office. The Selfy Large Wedge Table or Selfy Sliding Table, both in granite, add a solid contemporary look alongside the recliner.


Soto says the Italian-made Incanto Italia line of furniture also comes in an impressive number of styles, from triple recliners to sofa beds and recliner-chair combinations. These sleek designs are customizable with leather and fabric styles, wood and steel legs, and several other accents. You can also take this sleek look in exciting directions by adding an assortment of armchairs, including a slingback leather and wood design and deep and oval leather pieces. By adding the famous Ego Italiano line to Incanto and its other Italian brands, Copenhagen Imports has created even more diversity in its Italian-made furniture. This exciting new line includes sofas with flared armrests for added comfort and class, as well as exceptional leatherette options.

“It took a while for San Antonio to find contemporary furniture, but I certainly see more desire now for modern living arrangements with clean, fresh designs,” says Soto. “Every day we attract new customers who just say ‘Wow!’ I had a young couple come in, and they were so in love with the style they wanted to change everything. It’s like walking into a candy store, they are so impressed with the styles and designs. I am so proud and happy when they fall in love with what they see.

And it’s not just young first-time buyers of new furniture who are won over by Copenhagen Imports’ European designs. Soto also cites the downsizing of empty nests that are fueling the contemporary furniture trend – customers who are thrilled to leave their huge family homes and bulky furniture for clean lines that seem to magically light up a messy life. These couples always love to be entertained, creating a space with a sofa or sectional, an armchair and an elegant dining set, complemented by the fine art of the showroom.

Soto believes that the importance of living space to modern families will hold his position for years to come. To that end, she is thrilled to see every new piece that arrives in Copenhagen Imports’ expanding showroom. She and her colleagues invite everyone to visit Copenhagen Imports first and see the potential of contemporary European furnishings for the big house in San Antonio.
