Living Room / June 15, 2018 / Francis Raoul.
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.
For many people, the comfort of a living room outranks the aesthetic value but you can combine the two effortlessly, by focusing on a cosy finish. If you're wondering which motifs will help to capture the right essence.
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.
