The divider doesn’t even have to be a sofa! A pair of chairs gets the job done, as shown by the gray and black chairs that separate living room and dining room below.
A small living room can be expanded by taking one of the walls down. Get rid of the wall separating your living room and the kitchen, or your living room and the hall way. But remember, safety comes first. You can always resort to losing a wall to maximise your living space, as long as it won’t harm the structural resistance of the building.
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.
Without being heartwrenchingly expensive, this original designer lamp can add a touch of modernism and glamor to your living room. Simple and geometric, it impresses through texture and light effect. The light source is enveloped by shades covered with actual 24 karat gold leaves. A bit of optical physics has gone into this design, in addition to the glam. The gold is hand-finished to be so thin as to permit the short-wave blue light to pervade through it, while the warm light components are reflected on the inner side of the lamp shades. That is why the light source appears a gentle blue through the shades, while the inside of the shades is covered in a deep golden shine.
Designed by Poul Henningsen and first created 40 years ago, The PH Artichoke is one of the masterpieces of the house Louis Poulsen. Manufactured in a limited edition of 50, this exquisite pendant lamp is the final and perfected product in a series of variations. If you follow the PH series, you notice that each lamp seems to be a blooming and unfolding sequence, from the smallest lamp variant up to the refined artichoke. It is made from 72 leaves which cover the light source in such manner that one only perceives the reflected light. This gorgeous, golf leaf plated artichoke, with an 840 mm diameter, is an anniversary version that celebrates fine taste, exquisite design and not least, stuffed pockets.
Choose elements that are neither harsh nor extreme. If this is going to be the primary space for guests, avoid colors that are too severe or gender specific as these could alienate some of your guests. Primary colors and neutrals are always a safe bet. Lighter, brighter colors work best in when used sparingly.
