Living Room / May 24, 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.
In terms of living room ideas, UK homes often seek to use traditional design motifs, particularly in period homes that wouldn't look quite right with anything else. There's a real time and a place for classic and sophisticated recognisable tropes of interior design and older homes with a little history are most definitely the right location.
This arrangement from Andrew Martin, featuring the Cadogan sofa, is simple, uncluttered and arresting, not only because of its symmetry, but because of the different textures that are brought into play.
If you want a living room with a difference, it definitely can't hurt to embrace a striking piece of wall art as your main focal point. Here, thanks to an understated sofa and neutral colour scheme, all eyes are firmly on the art and that in itself alludes to a real gallery feel.
