Refresh your living room: five design solutions
With the changing seasons, we often want to give a new look to our homes. We are inspired to add a splash of colour, create a new mood, swap furniture around and discover new solutions. Let’s start with the living room, one of the areas where we spend the most time at home. These five design ideas from Santalucia Mobili will give a new look to your space without changing everything, simply by adding a new item of furniture.
#1 Sideboards are chic
A traditional piece of furniture that marries perfectly with contemporary spaces, the sideboard is ideal to enhance a corner or wall area, creating more storage or surface space in your living room. The Dandy range of sideboards from Ikona are available in many different shapes, colours and finishes and fit perfectly in living rooms with a modern style. A few tips: choose a coloured sideboard if the rest of your furnishings are white or a neutral tone if you have a more colourful living room. A wood/colour mix is always effective, too.
#2 Tables and side tables offer that finishing touch
Adding or changing the table in your living room can completely refresh the look. But how do you choose one? The Santalucia Mobili guide to the perfect table will certainly contain your ideal solution. Rectangular or round, large or small, fixed or extendable, there are many models and dimensions, whatever you need.
A side table is also perfect for a living space. It can be placed in front of the sofa to rest things on or elsewhere in the room as a decorative element. Ikona side tables are gorgeous individually but also as a pair, one lower and one higher.
#3 Writing tables and console tables with style
Writing and console tables are right on trend and are perfect for any living space. They perform a decorative role with their varied shapes and colours but are also functional, creating practical home-office areas in the living room.
#4 Chairs and petite armchairs
Other chairs can be used in a living room in addition to those around the dining table. The Sperelli chair, for example, with its embracing form and armrests, can create a little reading corner or is ideal for a writing-table.
#5 Form and function in a coat stand
If there is no more room for furniture in your living room, look out for an accessory such as the Ikona coat stand. This metallic titanium piece is 171.8 cm high, almost becoming a sculpture, and will catch everyone’s eye.
