Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

Sindey collection by Bizzotto Italia epitomizes the true essence of juxtaposed styles. Modernity and elegance, function and beauty, sophistication and simplicity are designed to coexist in a harmonious and highly impactful composition. Combining spontaneous character of natural burl and the deliberate panache of baroque details that are innate to gilded age royals, Sidney collection is ambitious and one that is destined to dominate the interior limelight with an impressive play of opposites that’s highlighted by superior quality and diverse tactile appeal.

On Cyber Monday we are left to ponder about the influence of Cyber Age on Interior Design

Monday, November 27th, 2017

Ever since it was coined in 2005, the term Cyber Monday revolutionized the way we shop for the holidays, and opened the door to other Cyberized activities like exercising, studying, and working in the cyber-age.  From gotomeeting.com that enables telecommuting, to online universities like Capella and a Peloton cycling experience with streaming live classes, cyber space continues to enrich our routines, offering endless conveniences and time-saving solutions that help make the most of our daily life.  This is an exciting reality that renders itself to a deeper cybernetic exploration and how it plays out in other aspects of our everyday lives.  Drawing on the importance of connectivity, interior design becomes incredibly crucial along with its elements that need to be reevaluated in order to accommodate dependability on technology and cyber space access.  There to meet these inevitable advancements, are innovative manufacturers like Presotto Italia that integrate cordless dockstations into living room and bedroom compositions, providing ports for connections with any smartphone or Nicoline Italia that created a special tech version of their Shelley sofa just to be able to offer its customers cyber access without ever leaving the couch.  And these are just examples that represent the tip of the iceberg as to the true influence of ever-melting cyber boundaries on where we live and how we decorate our homes.
