This is definitely our favorite way of putting the smart bookshelf to use, and it is undoubtedly the most popular choice among contemporary homeowners as well! A bookshelf in the open plan living area can delineate space, creating a distinct boundary between the living room and the dining area or kitchen without blocking light or visual connectivity. Apart from acting as a boundary, the shelf also adds to display and storage space and gives the living area a quick style upgrade. From those open, wiry bookshelves to the more sturdy ones in wood, you can pick a selection that best fits the style of your home and the overall ambiance.
They say that all trends tend to eventually fade away. But that is not always the truth, and in the case of decorating with bookshelves, you can rest assured that you are picking an option that is as timeless as it is trendy. It is easy to decorate with bookshelves, and they are much more than just aesthetic additions, as they also showcase your love for books, decorative art pieces and a whole lot more! Bookshelves need not always be filled with books. From stylish ceramics and fancy china in the dining room to indoor plants that create a wall of greenery, contemporary bookshelves can offer much more than just a space to stack your vast book collection.
While most people gladly embrace white while shaping the backdrop of the living room, kitchen, bedroom or dining space, white décor is an entirely different proposition. Speaking for a strictly practical perspective, they are pretty difficult to maintain over a period of time. In a living room that sees plenty of traffic along with kids and pets constantly moving around, the white sofa is definitely a poor choice. But for those who do not have to deal with endless rush and little ones jumping around on the couch, the white sofa can bring sophistication and elegance to the living room.
The designers at Shige Hasegawa Design in Tokyo have created this interesting, nature-inspired table and lamp set which is designed to focus in on a sense of tranquility and innovation through simplicity. ‘Hana’ means flower in Japanese, which is pretty clearly the innovation for these products: first, the Hana table, inspired by origami, is constructed from five flower pedal-shaped plywood legs which collectively hold up the glass table top without the use of additional screws or bolts.
