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.
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.
Designed by Ross Lovegrove, it is similar to a mobile crafted from sleek and shiny metal pieces. The lamps are encased in the sleek aluminum rock-shaped elements that are stylized dew drops suspended in mid-air under an upside down pond lily leaf. The shape of this unique lighting artwork can be interpreted in many ways. It is mostly decorative, since its light emission is not direct, but purely ambiental, reflected on the large aluminum disk.
Or double the fun with a pair of matching sofas! Below we see a living room from the Brown Residence, designed by The Construction Zone. Two lean sofas add symmetry while creating the ideal face-to-face seating arrangement.
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.
When you think of L shaped sofas you tend to think of straight lines but this season there is an emergence of the curved L shape. This is a great sofa if you want to make it the centre piece of a room or don’t want to draw attention to your less than straight walls!
The light is filtered through a precious shade of reflecting and refracting mouth-blown glass and polymethylmethacrylate beads to create subtle and intricate models on the walls.
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:
Even if you adore classic of massive wood furniture, it’s going to be hard to fit them in a small living room. And you know it. Therefore, it would be a much better idea to go for minimalist furniture (custom made would be ideal).
Or just hide the television in the cabinets across from the couch, as shown in the space below. Do you see the TV? That’s the point!
