Living Room / December 29, 2017 / Gaetane Noemi.
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.
An asymmetrical scheme avoids such exacting repetition, and relies on balancing the look with items of a similar size or visual weight, texture and colour. It’s less obvious – and more casual – than a formal scheme, but still feels well thought through.
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.
With such a large window here, the living room itself almost plays second fiddle to the view, which works terrifically well. Understated colours and minimal furniture is elegantly lit by the natural light that pours in and helps to create a space that is really inspired by the natural world outside.
