ith a large leather sofa, some souvenirs, a few framed black and white photos the living room becomes a place of memories, a refuge into yesteryear where one encounters a pleasant and reassuring familial atmosphere. The warm and earthy tones welcome one with open arms, while the pillows and carpet play with graphic patterns to give the space a more contemporary air. The coffee table and chair complete the scene: the former in a wooden sculptural version, the latter an unexpected modern totem. The mix and match style becomes an emblem of convivial elegance.

Style details

The leather sofa.

Wide, bold, with a broken-in look. The large-format classic leather sofa becomes the highlight even in a modern living room.

The floor lamp.

Black lampshade and stem, minimalist, but “soft”: here is the perfect lamp to light up the scene with discrete elegance.

The sculptural chair.

Slender, sinuous, it seems to dance on pointe. With its subtle grace it instantly attracts attention.
