Anything that injects the elusive old age charm to your living room is bound to make you love it. If you do have the habit of storing those sepia tinted photographs of your ancestral home, it would be easier to understand what it means to live around those charming old furniture designs and drapes.
Everyone wishes to display inspired, decorative and welcoming objects in their carefully planned living room. In our modern age, lamps have overcome their purely practical and technical purpose and can help us achieve just this. They are visually and effectively a significant part of our everyday life and the design of our home.
Oh, the joys of seating strategy! If your living room is spatially challenged in any way, shape or form, you know how difficult it can be to find a seating arrangement that is both comfy and accommodating. If you have plenty of space, a roomy couch is a great place to start. The living room below features a modular sofa from Usona:
A few rugs in different patterns and shades can really do the trick. In addition, they serve as chic space dividers. This is a great example of creativity, a blend of formal and casual items would do the purpose fairly well; get jumbo sized decorative articles, big flower vases, sculptures or even large lampshades if you want to make a style statement.
Both the sofa and the trunk look cool and fun, adding a tinge of color to any home decor. But the question is, are you going to be just as excited when the Olympics games are over? While it sounds neat to get your friends over and enjoy the games with a pint in your hand, paying £2399 and £629, respectively, is not exactly something that I’d call affordable.
If your seating faces the TV set, try placing it to the left or right of the room’s focal point. A chair can always be swiveled to better align with the television when it’s time to watch your favorite show.
Who says your coffee table can’t double as seating while you host a gathering? Below we see a tufted coffee table/bench that can easily be moved to accommodate a group.
One of my personal favorites, the pendant lamp Dandelion was designed by Richard Hutten, in 2004. Its technical details read as intricate design of laser-cut steel with white powder coat finish, but the result is endless, ethereal and feminine poetry. As weightless as the flower it received its name from, Dandelion pendant lamp filters the light through the pure and geometric ‘petal’ elements and provides direct and ambient illumination for a optimal effect. At first sight, it may be somewhat pretentious, but it can work wonders in the right color scheme. What its designers say about this lamp: “True to its name, Dandelion was initially inspired by the plant the creates the famous and poetic ‘dandelion snow’ of fuzzy, cotton-like seeds when a gush of wind blows on it.
Designers are also having a bit of fun with the L shaped sofa with some new innovations coming through. One particularly innovative design is shaped a bit like a ‘flump’ marshmallow and is made using a hard foam used for the seat and soft foam for the back. This design not only looks great and is super comfy, it also adds a lift to any living room, bringing a contemporary feel to the room. So, next time you are looking for a new sofa for your home, why not take a look at the many L shaped sofa designs out there and add that little extra something to your living room.
The diffuse light is partly filtered through the epoxy lacquered metal frame whose shape reminds of stars. This decorative frame, in spite of being made of metal, seems delicate, airy and origami-like. It is available in glossy black, white, red or chartreuse green. This lamp is suitable to be hung as a cluster, at varying heights, in one larger and one smaller version in the same color or 2 different colors according to your design scheme, and makes a lovely and original impression.
