If the glass slipper fits!
I am sure that most of us have encountered a ‘One Size Fits All’ nightmare when shopping for clothes. The perfect piece that fits all shapes and hugs all curves does not seem to exist.
While fashion is a far cry away from any such findings, home décor might have found such solutions. There are some pieces of furniture that wear the glass slipper better than Cinderella does, and here’s how to identify furniture suitable for all interiors!
First, let us familiarize ourselves with some popular interior design styles:
Scandinavian style: Uses bright, lighter colours with woody textures and natural finishing.
Modern Minimalism: Combination of versatile materials like wood, metal and glass. Neutral colour palettes accentuated by sleek, clean silhouettes.
Traditional: Dark tones embellished with ornamental furnishings and decorative elements.
Mid-century: Inspired by popular artists like Eames, mid-century design has an minimalistic vintage look. Features leather upholstery and bold tones.
Bohemian style: Complex and ambiguously fluid. Layers of colours, designs and patterns adorn soft structures.
Versatile furniture is a fusion of these popular stylings:
- Features bright and neutral colours.
- Inspired from mid-century designs, upgraded for the modern era: minimalism meets industrial vintage.
- · Sleek straight silhouettes: clean lines, streamlined shapes and soft edges.
- Dark tones with lighter, neutral colour accents.
- Solid wood furnishings.
Neutral tones and minimalist modern styles are inclined to suit most homes and flatter almost any space. Hopefully this guide on how to identify furniture suitable for all interiors helped you. All the best in your search for that versatile gem!
