Cushion backed sofas are a big hit this season and, unsurprisingly, they feature heavily in the new designs for the L shaped sofa this season. These are great sofas for those who want to curl up in style.
Ever wondered why you tend to take a trip down memory lane when you would want to experience something sweet? Being modern might be in, but things that give you the ultimate happiness could always be the traditional ones. That’s also true in the case of your living rooms, too. Try bringing back the olden day magic to your living rooms and you would agree with what we say remember how Steve Jobs was famous for saying ‘What is the purpose of a sofa?
Whether you’re stumped by a living room layout problem or you’re looking for ways to change up your space, don’t forget the value of strategically placing your furniture. Not to mention, if you’re looking to buy a new piece or two, consider the needs of the room before making that purchase. A little forethought can go a long way in creating a living room that is both stylish and functional. Happy decorating!
Another helpful hint: use side tables as coffee tables. They can easily be moved to open up the space when it’s time to entertain.
Cleaning your home might be the most difficult task, especially when you have to put up with roommates and it only becomes harder if one of them is as lazy as some of us. But the hardest part of the cleaning process is to get started and get the ball rolling and while many of us are renowned for our lazy escapades and an ability to put of work endless, adapting the same attitude with cleaning your home means piles of dirt and loads of messiness which would eventually force your hand. A few simple and ‘easy to follow’ guidelines though can help you untangle the mess and should get you started on the way to cleanliness that is more or less close to godliness!
The first step that gets things moving along is designing a firm, fixed schedule for cleaning your home. It doesn’t matter whether you do it every day or once a week or even once a month; but having a well-defined schedule is crucial. It is one thing to have a schedule and a whole different proposition when it comes to following it strictly and without fail. Have the discipline to do so.
Kundalini Light Design are skilled in their bold use of round, organic geometry in their products. An art piece of Guglielmo Berchicci , the ETA Sat Lamp looks like a huge bulb, somehow tropical, and creates a jolly atmosphere. It is hand-made with ecological resin on a metallic structure with a polycarbonate reflector body. An instant eye-catcher in any style of living room , whether in white, red or discreet yellow.
Designed by Louise Campbell for lighting company Louis Poulsen, the Collage pendant lamp is feminine by definition. The light source itself is concealed and shines diffusely through 3 layers made from laser cut acrylic layers. The vine and strand shaped cutouts make up an elegant and highly decorative pattern and filter a diffuse glow through and also allow for indirect light on the ceiling. It is a beautiful and versatile lamp, whether pink and trendy in the hotlips version, funky in the juicy orange version, ethereal and minimal in snow white, fresh and vivid in lemon yellow or timelessly elegant in the smoke-tinted version.
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.
