Speaking of arranging furniture, in addition to helping define function, these groupings also dictate how your friends and family will move through the space. Anyone who has tried to shimmy their way out of a too-tight seating area can tell you the importance of leaving the proper amount of – physical and visual – breathing room.
It feels like you’re on the Titanic and one side is sinking, right? Visual weight is all about helping balance a room. If you’re dealing with multiple, big, heavy components make sure to stagger them throughout the space so that one side does not feel more weighted down than another. Do your best to group larger items together with smaller ones to help vary your points of visual interest.
Play off the colors of the outdoors: When choosing and positioning furniture, play off of the colors outside, inside. A room that overlooks gorgeous blue water should use complimentary blues, greens, and sand colors inside their space. Positioning your furniture with similar colored pieces will give the illusion of being one with the outdoors. A designer’s trick is to mimic the colors of the views with your interiors, and your room will instantly feel larger, and more appealing.
Seating Units and Side Table. Did you ever look around your home and imagine a cupboard or a table break down into functional pieces? The idea for the project entitled “Within- Seating Units and Side Table ” comes from Mattias Stenberg of Stockholm-based Studio Vision, who describes the limited edition piece as follows: “I have strove to create a very “engineered” or constructed look of the ash structure by using few straight lines and arranging the grain direction of the wood to increase the perception of depth.” Elegant and versatile, the pieces do more than just adorn a room- they add personality.
