ELVIN: Furniture Room Scheme Living Area

On a visit to us here at Pure Design our client decided on a range of handless cabinet furniture with clean lines and minimal look.

Taking advantage of our Interior design service here at Pure Design, Howard our Furniture Manager & Head Designer visited our client’s home and took their brief. A slightly dated gas fire and mantle dominated the living room which was also cramped with many pieces of more traditional Oak furniture. The brief was to achieve a modern, minimal, yet comfortable interior.

An opening separated the living and dining rooms so it made perfect sense to run with the same finishes to both rooms making the space seem much larger. A choice of high gloss Taupe lacquer contrasting with Dark Brown Oak was used to give a warm contemporary feel. The reflective quality of gloss lacquer brought more light and reflection to the dining area adding to the illusion of more space.

Our clients did not want to accommodate a large TV that would be the main focal point in the room. A small drop lid cabinet provides a base for the TV to sit on whilst hiding the DVD player and set top box. It was decided that there was no need for a fireplace so Howard suggested that the slim chimney breast wall could be built out to accommodate a recess within it into which back lit floating wall shelves could be fitted creating a niche that would become the main focal point.

Dark wood wall panelling was installed to both sides of the chimney breast further enhancing the feature wall whilst giving a richness and depth to the room. Dark Brown Oak floating wall shelves in the dining room on the same line as the shelves within the niche gave continuity to the two areas. So as not to appear too regimented the shelves were staggered and of different lengths giving the appearance of more height. Wall mounted drop lid cabinets provide useful sideboard storage whist the floating look maximises floor area, again adding to the illusion of more space.

A Tranoi dining table was chosen in Dark Brown Oak to tie in with the wall panels and shelves. A hidden leaf allows the table to be extended and when placed it has the same detail as table top disguising the extension. Dining chairs with a frame in the same finish were chosen with a contrasting white upholstered seat and back.
With the clients’ choice of black leather sofas, glass coffee table, stunning curtain fabrics and a feature glass suspension lamp over the dining table, they now have a luxurious, minimal area in which to relax and entertain.
