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 design piece by Patricia Urquiola and Eliana Gerotto of the tradition-rich manufacturer Foscarini. For connoisseurs already a beloved modern classic, the Caboche pendant lamp needs a living room that is able to celebrate it. Glamorous and extravagant, it reminds of the glassblowing tradition of its home town Venice. Glamorous and extravagant, it comes in clear and gold colors and in pendant, floor and wall lamp versions.
Why not combine the modular coffee table idea with see-through style? Try grouping four clear side tables to create a large coffee table that can store a variety of items, as shown in the room below, designed by Estee Stanley. When company arrives, move the tables to the side if necessary.
This pendant lamp is bold, wild, temperamental and exciting. Lampshades with a clipped, scissored aspect have the advantage of filtering the light and creating a sweet shadowplay, in addition to favoring the distribution of some indirect light to the ceiling. Thus, the contrast between the lamp and the surface of the ceiling is diminished. Red and glossy, a funky pendant lamp such as Devil easily finds its place in a modern, retro or punk living room.
Looking for height as well as a clear separation of spaces? Go with a divider screen, such as a frosted Plexiglass selection that lets in the light while doing its job.
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.
