5 Modern Furniture Examples in High Gloss Lacquered Finish

Friday, February 24th, 2012

Transcending time and style, high gloss lacquer finish has been reincarnated in many forms and even more functions.  Originally from the Far East where resin tinted with charcoal or cinnabar adorned artisan objects, lacquer has played a vital role in contemporary furniture making, revolutionizing modern design and inspiring the likes of Eileen Gray and Eero Saarinen. Today, lacquer is as popular and widely used as ever, offering a refined eloquence with depth and textural variance that collectively and effectively contribute to its sleek and sought after appeal.

Platform beds with storage are a great way to declutter.  Storage can be in the form of an under-the-bed hydraulic lift mechanism as seen with the Selex Rex platform bed by Milmueble or as part of the headboard’s design as seen with Luxor 903 platform bed by Milmueble.

2012 PANTONE Color of the Year is 17-1463 Tangerine Tango

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

A vibrant color choice for the year that is predicted to bring economic upturn and global recovery, Tangerine Tango is a reddish orange that is destined to uplift spirits and re-energize its surroundings.  Pantone’s executive director Leatrice Eiseman has summarized the true essence of this color by describing it as “sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it, reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”
