We always talk of the living room as a monolithic unit. Every little detail in the room is like a small piece of the larger jigsaw. Disturb one and you might have to end up creating an entirely new picture! The fabulous and comfy couch is definitely at the center of this delightful setting and is inarguably the most important piece of décor in any living space. A couch can define the style of your living room and as an extension that of your kitchen and dining space as well. It pretty much lays down the marker for everything else and is the one large addition that can transform the living room ambiance.
You can have a lot of variety within a neutral living room. Choose your furniture pieces in a way that makes each of them a little different, be it by color shade or design! The sofa, armchair and ottoman are all a different hue of beige, making the room beautifully diverse. For a more intricate atmosphere, pick a tone at the darker end of the beige spectrum, almost so similar to light brown that you can add some actual brown pieces to the mix and create a very soft, prestigious interior. Wooden elements are the greatest choice for a beige living room! They bring something delicate and dark to a luscious living space! A harmonious style of light and dark neutral shades instantly creates a lavish living room that has a big factor of comfort and an even bigger factor of luxury.
We always advice our readers to think beyond the confines of the square footage of their home and to harness all that additional space which those walls have to offer. Wall-mounted décor not only frees up precious foot space, but these cool floating cabinets, shelves and modular units also give the living room a more cheerful, breezy ambiance. They undoubtedly cut back on visual clutter and you can even use them to introduce new patterns, textures and sculptural features. Just remember though that you might not want to go berserk with wall-mounted modular units in smaller living rooms as they can easily seem overbearing when done wrong.
The designers at Shige Hasegawa Design in Tokyo have created this interesting, nature-inspired table and lamp set which is designed to focus in on a sense of tranquility and innovation through simplicity. ‘Hana’ means flower in Japanese, which is pretty clearly the innovation for these products: first, the Hana table, inspired by origami, is constructed from five flower pedal-shaped plywood legs which collectively hold up the glass table top without the use of additional screws or bolts.
