Living Room / June 9, 2018 / Francis Raoul.
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.
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.
The room set above – featuring stylish pieces from Interiors – is a great example of asymmetric symmetry with furniture arranged to balance rather than mirror. The two club chairs are placed precisely across from the modular sofa, as are the two padded stools, so the overall look is neat and contained.
Practicalities must be considered, of course, and furnishings chosen to suit our lifestyle, but there’s more to it than that: as any interior designer will tell you, a great scheme depends on principles that might not be immediately obvious, but which, when successfully employed, make a world of difference not only to the look of a room, but to the way it makes you feel in it.
