Set along a wall in a modern home, these designer storage objects by Alf De Fre begin to blur the boundaries between architecture, interior and furniture design. Spatially, they seem as much like extensions of the surrounding walls or art placed against them as they do places to put things. They are more than just bookcases or shelving units.
From a green wallpaper design built of actual moss to a delicate-looking moss-made room divider, there is an apparent two-dimensional organizational aesthetic at work but, at the same time, there is an organic randomness as well as a tangible texture and depth across each surface – all part of an intentional interplay between nature and human design orchestrated by Japanese designers at Nendo.
In a large living room, you can make a certain area stand out by using color. The seating area, for example, can feature a combination of turquoise armchairs, matching accent pillows and an area rug also incorporating the same color.
Besides the circular living room and the rectangular formal dining room – also open to the outdoors when its large glass doors are open – the first floor is one big, wide-open space. Shades of white are used extensively to let natural light bounce off of all of the surfaces and further add visual space to the home.
As the current dictates, a modern living room is characterized by simplicity and minimalism. The furniture has clean lines and there are no unnecessary details or decorations. The accent falls on practicality, functionality and the ability to save space and create an airy and spacious decor. Of course, they can also feature accent elements that are characteristic to other styles. In this case they are used as focal point and they don’t define the living room as a whole.
