It’s hard having friends over and not being able to have them sit at the table. That’s because you can’t afford a big table. But that can be solved, if you “relocate” your balcony and turn it into a dining area. Smart eh?
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.
Adding to them, rich hued and heavily embroidered drapes would usher in the traditional charm by all means. If you remember, we all used to and still do love our furniture and curtain clothes made out of velvet, silk or brocade. The enticing presence the traditional stuff brings into your living rooms is beyond compare.
When you have a room in your home that has many purposes, choosing décor can seem a complex task to tackle. If you’re in this situation, you will need to create a design that is as flexible and versatile as the room itself. For example, select furniture that doubles as storage and a media center that can easily be closed to hide bulky or unsightly electronics such as game consoles.
Next we see a New York City loft living room, which reminds us of how 3-sided seating can be perfect for large spaces. In other words, create a U-shape with your sofas and chairs, moving them away from the wall if necessary. Add a fun touch here and there, like the 1960s Pedro Friedeberg Hand chair and Alvar Alto lounge chairs shown below.
If you are living in a shared house with your friends, assign specific tasks to each member of the home as this helps in avoiding unwanted hassle and tussles during cleaning. Assign everyone a task that they are more or less comfortable with. You can switch chores with your friends once in a while, if you start feeling bored with your regular task.
This beautifully designed showroom caught my attention from the first photo a clean and sleek white background pierced by black hanging lamps and inspiring details. The Ferm Living Showroom in Copenhagen, Denmark is a promising space that encompasses the Danish company’s products in a well-lit space.
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.
