Living Room / June 15, 2018 / Francis Raoul.
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.
Show off your key focal point by framing it appropriately painting a wall a strong colour is the perfect backdrop for, say, striking artwork, a dramatic mirror, or display. Consider lighting, too this should be arranged to show off your chosen focal point to best advantage so that it doesn’t get ‘lost’ once night falls… and of course, there’s no reason why a fabulous light fixture, such as a sparkling chandelier or dramatic pendant, shouldn’t be the star, too.
When a sectional sofa is your primary seating, you might be tempted to push it into the corner of the room and call it a day. But this can feel claustrophobic, especially to those people seated on the deepest cushions. Pull it away from the wall to let light and air flow around it. Place a brightening lamp or slender console table at the back, and put any other seating in position to see people seated at both ends of the L. When used in a narrow living room layout, it can be an easy barrier to add a section function to the space: a toy room, a craft table, or a pool table.
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.
