Hannah 6 Seater Corner Sofa
Equal parts stylish and comfortable, the soft, curvy lines of this sofa will make any design more dynamic and inviting.
This is a particularly great statement piece from @47_kvadrat because it makes a strong impression at the same time that it invites anyone to take a load off and decompress from the day. Additionally, the colours it features are nearly endless, so you can punch-up your design as much or as little as you’d like.
The only thing more fun than the ultra unique shape of this playful pouf is the variety of hues it comes in.
From sunshine yellow to pale peach to rich lavender, this piece is a killer way to add more colourful life to your design. And it also comes in two different sizes, so it’ll complement your look no matter the square footage you’re working with.
Save Media Rack
Media consoles aren’t exactly known for their high-style appearance, which is just one of the reasons you should incorporate this uniquely stylish piece into your space like this example from Lene Orvik.
The console’s mid-century design is equally timeless and minimal, so it’ll stow away unsightly cords and electronics while looking incredibly chic doing it.
Oliver Drinks Cabinet
For all of the relief they bring at the end of a long day, our cocktail ingredients should get the proper presentation they deserve.
What’s particularly cool about this piece is that you can display it in multiple ways. If you’re a staunch minimalist, then you can keep it closed and contained, and if you’re looking for a bit more visual intrigue, you can display it as a wide-open piece that’ll send an open cocktail invitation to anyone who sees it.
Essay Dining Table
A piece needn’t feature an abundance of textures, shapes, and hues to make an impact; sometimes a pared-back design makes the biggest statement of all.
This stunning dining table will easily set the tone for a minimal, exhale-inducing aesthetic while paving the way for any of your other favorite design elements to shine brightly.
