Uniquely Designed Work Sofa Makes Office Space More Congenial

Many a time, especially if you are doing creative kind of work, you work better in casual atmosphere. A rigid office like atmosphere with desk and chair does not put wings to our imagination or creativity. New ideas pour in when you feel more relaxed, lounging in leisure looking at nothing particular – just day dreaming. Many times when you get ideas, you need to put them down in black and white at once to make them happen. Work sofas are conducive to this. Work sofas are something of a mix between a sofa and a working chair taking the concept a little further so that you have a place where you can keep a writing pad and scribble or where you can keep your laptops, palms and i Pads to bring shape to what ideas float in your head. It can be chair, it can be a sofa, it can be a desk – all depends on your imagination and arrangement skills

Imagine the freedom this sofa gives you to get away from your table or desk! You are not in the self-same spot day in and day out looking at the same scenarios. These are modular sofas, not too heavy – that can be arranged where you need it when you need it. Put it in the patio, in the terrace, in the study room or in an alcove – where you want it and you can get down to work undisturbed. Actually work-sofas are a blessing in the office scenario as well as home office. Suppose you are having a conference or a workshop, having huge tables and chairs all round make it look so forbiddingly formal and stiff that many a time things do not work out smoothly. But these work-sofas when arranged together make such a cosy feeling of easy casual chic people love it.

There are some work- sofas which look a combo of sectional, ottoman, sofa, side table, computer desk and daybed as well with plenty of storage options built in arms, underneath and at the back. Especially in small size flats like studio apartments, this kind of modular and all-in-one contraption can be a boon, saving precious space otherwise eaten by each of the furniture separately.
Here are some images of the work sofas from Studio Makkink & Bey. Conceived, designed and built by Rianne Makkink and Jurgen Bey, this work sofa is modular in style and has been touted as the best thing happened in office furniture. The unique design and comfort factor makes it great.

I am sure you may like one for yourself if you happen to have a home office, don’t you?

Simple Elegance for Living Room Ideas

Too many sofas, chairs, coffee tables and knick-knacks can make your living room cluttered and crowded. When you are in a studio apartment or a small one bedroom-kitchen-living room apartment, you need to furnish your living room in a minimalistic style to make the most of the available space. Just plan well and take your time to select each piece of the furniture.

You do not have to buy full furniture sets – like six-piece sofa set or seven-piece sofa set – for your small -size living room. You will have no place to accommodate all of them with no elbow room to move about even for half of the furniture sets in your living room. Go for a beautiful and choice three-seat sofa. That alone should be sufficient as the focus of your living room.

You can add a pair of accent chairs in a mix-and-match way. That way you can bring a touch of color to your room. Too much matching upholstery gives sameness and makes the palette boring and ordinary. If your three seater is a beige colored, you can choose the accent chairs in maroon, burgundy red or sunset orange – so it blends well with the beige sofa.

Now that you have got two pieces of sofa and chairs, you can think of going for a beautiful coffee table and another small bistro table, end table, or sofa table as accessories. See to that coffee table is conveniently located with enough moving room around it and within easy reach of the sofa and chairs so you can reach to keep a coffee cup etc.

Get a beautiful area rung or a small-size carpet in a color matching to the sofa – after all that is where the area rug will look best. Also check out for beautiful cushions that will look well on the sofas. Have you checked what kind of window curtains you will have in the room? Select a pretty looking sideboard or cabinet with drawers etc to display your curios.

Now you need a couple of art pieces to add to the beauty of the room. Select two wall hangings that will add to the beauty of your room and add a bowl of fresh flowers on the sofa table. Now you have perfectly furnished the room without cluttering it. You can see a beautifully done living room from Basset Furniture.
