3 hot examples of red room decor

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

These hot red rooms are not the kind from “50 Shades of Grey” but rather are steamy illustrations of exceptional unification between the powerful and the subdued.  Red is an inspiring and highly influential color that sets the ambiance in any room around the house, evocative of passion, power, and elevated emotions.  In interior decor, red color is at its best when used subtly and conservatively with understated hints of warmth and exhilaration.  When introducing a new iteration of the Basket platform bed, the Basket Air version by Bonaldo was depicted in a subdued room with primarily grey color scheme and red accents in the form of the Icosi end table, select bedding elements and the frame of the Alfie accent chair.

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Pianca is one of Italy’s leading modern furniture manufacturers that specialize in sleek, minimalistic products designed for the living room, bedroom and dining room spaces.  And yet, with a little imagination and a big vision, we found a few of Pianca’s pieces realized in the modern bathroom space, interpreted in a way that exudes nothing but a sense of definitive fit, as if their roots are found in a niche modern bathroom manufacturer like Duravit, Boffi, or Lacava and ultimately proves that Pianca offers versatility in addition to the apparent function and design aspect of its vast product line.

A modern bedroom that showcases the Zero round bed by Presotto is one of the most dramatic and sensory environments where everything is black, including the bed’s upholstery, carpets and walls.  However, in this case, while everything is undeniably the same color, the extraordinary shape of the bed takes center stage and stands out the most.

Bone Chairs and Coal Tables: World’s 6 Creepiest Furniture Pieces

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Some furniture designers focus on timeless, classic pieces. Other designers focus on pieces that are interesting, artistic, and even creepy. Artwork does not have to hang on the walls or be tucked away in a corner where no one can touch it. It can be proudly displayed as a centerpiece, a functional piece of furniture, a conversation starter or simply that creepy piece of modern furniture that your friends can’t take their eyes off of.

Interior design is going green, and everything natural is hip and hot. Burned logs that are transformed into stools or end tables are unique, amazing, and just a little bit odd.

A wooden log is stripped of all bark and then sections are actually burnt out to create distinctive legs with a smoky finish. Every stool is unique as the work of fire is naturally unpredictable. They are available in lengths that are appropriate for creating end tables as well as stools. Read More
