longated backrests, cocoon-like armchairs and low lighting: the living room steps outsides yet it preserves the same homely intimacy that makes us feel protected and looked after. Inspired by nature, the sculptural wicker seating with extra-soft seats is complemented by living room-style furniture such as a carpet, an ottoman that doubles as a coffee table, adding a sophisticated, modern touch to the conversation area. Beside the sofa, a spherical light completes the living room theme with magical reflections that bring to mind the moon. The overall mood is instantly more elegant and familiar as well as romantic and carefree.

Style details

The ottoman/ coffee table.

Instead of a standard coffee table, go for an ottoman with a central shelf: an occasional seat when need be.

The elongated backrest.

Part throne and part nest, this armchair with its ergonomic backrest take centre stage: to indulge in intimate and private idleness.

The spherical lamp.

Inspired by living room furniture, perfect for the outdoors too as it adds a refined, dramatic touch.
