Feeling Cornered…?

This is a great house.  Mid-century modern.  Open plan.  The entry, dining room and living room share the same space.  The “before” picture is what you see standing in the entry.  The sofas face the corner as if looking at something greater than guests at the front door.  Almost makes one feel excluded and unimportant.  Simply reversing the sofa configuration and redirecting the focus changes the entire attitude of the room.  The sofas greet you as you enter the home.  The club no longer feels exclusive but rather open to all who enter.  The feeling is happy, inviting and comfortable.  Nothing new was purchased for this 2 hour transformation.  Everything came from the same room – just reappropriated.  Feeling cornered…?  Let us help you re-see your space.

To Angle or Not To Angle

Angling furniture can be severe and unapproachable – often times turning away from the built environment.  The following “before” and “after” images illustrate why not to angle furniture.  The “before” image depicts furniture in a very rigid formation.  Tense.  Nervous. Uptight. The “after” image is relaxed and inviting.  The furnishings seems to be in perfect conversation with each other.  Comfortable.  Welcoming.  Engaging.
