Living Room / April 27, 2018 / Francis Raoul.
Look in any design magazine and you'll find a slew of utterly incredible modern living rooms that exude a clean and unfussy aesthetic that helps to maximise every inch of space and nuance of natural light.
At first glance, this elegant setting showcasing the Caracole collection from Bloomingdale’s Home Dubai, appears purely symmetrical, thanks to the curved seating, wall panelling and windows, but look closely, and there are elements that make it far more asymmetrical: the coffee table duo is off centre, while a throw on one chair is balanced by the plant on the cabinet.
How to arrange living room furniture in a rectangular room depends on the natural focal point of the space. In some rooms, this is architectural, such as a fireplace or a set of windows. In other living rooms, the focal point is a television. Once you determine this feature, orient the seating toward it. This feature now has the attracting qualities the wall is used to—let the furniture gravitate there. For a large living room layout, find ways to create zones in the space.
Real wood flooring, exposed bricks, interior wood wall cladding and a real fire or stove will make for a gorgeous room that is undeniably connected to nature and the outside world, which is what rustic aesthetics are all about. You could definitely look to include some wools, felt and leather too.
