4. Use curvilinear furniture pieces Eliminate angular furniture with long, straight lines that accentuate the length of a room. Instead, go with furniture that has soft, rounded edges. Oval and circular shapes counteract straight lines – think round coffee tables, side tables, ottomans. The linear elements in this room, as evinced by the large artwork and the beading on the ceiling, are offset by the rounded edges of the plush sofas and the armchair. Even the gently curving light fixture at the far end serves to break up the abundance of straight lines.Tip: Round mirrors and artwork on the walls work equally well in drawing the eye away from straight lines.
1. Diamond tuftingThis is one of the oldest and most popular types of tufting techniques used in sofas, chaises, and similar pieces of furniture. Indicative of the name, the fabric is pulled and secured in a way to create diamond patterns. The technique features extra cushioning in each tuft, resulting in a cosier and more comfortable seating experience. Sofa Guide: 9 Timeless Sofa Styles
5. Purple, white and brownDid you know that purple (well, okay, ultra violet, to be precise – but you get our drift) is the Pantone Colour of the Year 2018 ? This hue takes over the living room through the extra-long sofas tufted in purple fabric, contrasting beautifully with the bleached curtains, walls and ceiling, and the brown flooring.
Straight ahead from the entrance foyer is the living room, where columns in the centre of the walls allow for unhindered column-free corner views towards the lawn on either side. “Essentially a glass box sitting in the middle of the lawn, the living room, with its green views, is a favourite with our clients and us,” Bansal says. The focal point of the room are the two plum-coloured tufted Chesterfield sofas placed facing each other. These expansive seats accompany centre tables of statuario marble and stainless steel, a burnished brass central chandelier, a corner arc lamp and a grey leather armchair.
