A simple combined living and dining area
A combined living and dining area are common throughout the world, but here’s one that takes a refreshingly different approach. The young family who live here have tailored this small space to their specific needs and interests – with a strong emphasis on simplicity, time-enduring design and natural materials.
Harmonious combination of objects and furniture
In a small room, every object needs to be useful – but what about beautiful too? This space shows what happens when the two come together: every piece of furniture serves at least one purpose, with timeless design that adds to the look of the room.
Living room without rules
Your home is your own personal space, so make it work for you and your life. This couple, for instance, don't own a TV (their laptop works just fine for them), which gave them more freedom when furnishing their living area. Rather than a traditional sofa, they instead opted for two side-by-side chaise longues to create a cosy space for relaxing. When friends come over, the nearby stools and easy chairs can quickly spring into action.
Flexible home storage and organization
This bamboo dining table is the scene of many cosy suppers and gatherings with loved ones. It’s also where deadlines get chased and creative juices flow. The secret to fitting so many functions into one small space comes down to the flexible storage nearby. Craft supplies go on the rails, tableware is taken care of by the double cabinets in solid pine, and the two drawer units tucked below pack away the paperwork.
Furniture made of natural/sustainable materials
Natural materials like bamboo and jute are the starting point of this home's warm and welcoming style, with black accessories and green accents added to the mix.
