The elegance of the round table: here are the reasons why you should choose a round table for your dining room or kitchen.

miniforms acco table

The round table is a classic! Almost a must have in the kitchen and a very elegant decorative element when placed in a dining room. The round table goes well with everything, it has no edges and therefore the capacity is larger.

Thanks to the absence of edges in the central area there is more space for storing food and dishes. The round table is ideal for large families, for those who often invite guests home or for those who like to live in a very chic but not too sophisticated environment.

If you opt for a round table for 6 people we recommend to choose the size with a diameter of 120 cm so that each guest or family member will have enough space to enjoy the meal.

Since every diner will have the same exact space at their disposal, they will feel more comfortable without the embarrassment of deciding who should sit at the head of the table, as happens with rectangular tables but also with oval-shaped ones.

In addition, the round tables supported by a single central base make the chairs arrangement much more comfortable and there is undoubtedly much more space for diner’s legs.

Round tables have a smaller encumbrance than rectangular, square or oval tables and are perfect for small rooms, or for situations where you need to make the best use of the available space without losing seats (as in restaurants or bars).

Walk-in Closet and Separating Elements

rimadesio collection 1

Walk-in closet and separating elements: the ideal solutions for a functional and stylish home.

rimadesio collection 0

The new challenge in the design of homes and in the world of interior design is the versatility and multi-functionality of environments and therefore also of furniture. Smart homes, interior spaces that must adapt to the multiple needs of people: work, physical activity, relaxation and aesthetic requirements.

rimadesio collection 1

The world of furniture, therefore, must offer concrete answers to a growing desire for quality, efficiency and aesthetics. This has led to the creation of collections (for example, proposed by the Italian company Rimadesio) composed of sliding panels, doors, partitions, flanked by proposals dedicated to storage such as walk-in closets, bookcases, equipped boiserie. These types of products are quite new in the furniture sector and are all characterized by a high degree of technical innovation and performance.

Walk-in closets

These multi-functional elements make it possible to divide rooms with extreme elegance and without compromising visual impact. Some types of walk-in closets, for example, allow you to cut out small spaces in the bedroom for various purposes: to create reading corners, to practice yoga, to arrange clothes more easily or to divide two different rooms.

Partition systems and sliding doors

The dividing systems, instead, can be inserted in any other space in the house, in the kitchen, in the dining room, in the living room. Ideal for open-space and to create an office without compromising the aesthetic harmony of the home. The design will therefore be very simple, linear, modern, very precise and accurate in every detail. These features will make these elements adaptable to any furniture and style.

Bookshelves as room dividers

For easy, smart and not definitive solutions you can choose to divide a room through the use of a bookcase. Bookcases with a minimalist and non-invasive design that allow you to create two different rooms without the use of a door or sliding doors that would involve a higher cost.

The Public Spaces of the Future

The public spaces of the future: the evolution of meeting places in the post Covid era.

Social distancing will be the new normality (at least temporarily), and therefore our society will have to adapt to the new circumstances that COVID-19 has brought in the daily life of each of us. Public spaces will have to be reorganized in order to accommodate a large number of people in total safety. Hotels, restaurants, bars, theatres, cinemas, schools and universities will be the first to have to adapt to this epochal change and find the best solution to ensure both separation and conviviality.

Innovation will not automatically mean cold and aseptic environments. The public spaces of the future will be as warm and welcoming as our home, thanks to the use of versatile and above all smart furniture, made with materials that can be easily washed without losing beauty and elegance.

The idea that, for the moment, is taking hold among the best designers is to create small private “rooms” in which small groups of people can gather. This idea can be applied to almost all public spaces, from restaurants to hotels, from university study rooms to offices.

The Natural Style at Home

The natural style at home: a conscious and eco-sustainable choice but also an opportunity to create relaxing environments.

The natural style is characterized by combinations of sober/neutral materials/colors, inspired by the Scandinavian style. It is not necessary to overturn the house to create the natural style, just choose wisely furniture, accessories and coverings that will make the space more welcoming and intimate.

The natural style enhances the light thanks to specific materials such as wood and rough stone. This encounter between natural light and these organic and naturally imperfect materials gives the environment delicacy and personality.

Decorate the Garden with Style

Decorate the garden with style. The garden, an outdoor room that deserves the same attention as the indoors.

saba outdoor furniture

The garden should be considered on a par with all the other rooms. And like all the rooms in the house it needs care and attention if you want a garden full of style and personality.

saba outdoor furniture img 1

To decorate the garden with style you need to focus not only on the care of plants, flowers and grass but also on the choice of practical, functional, comfortable and designer outdoor furniture. Just a few pieces are enough but of quality.

Those who, like us, love design tend to include one or more furnishing or purely decorative elements in their outdoor space, whether it is a large garden or a small outdoor area, in order to create a stylistic continuum with the home.

If you are lucky enough to have a swimming pool you will be very interested in the combination of plants, water and furniture. It is advisable to decorate the pool top with large pots of plants in order to create shade and contrast the flooring which is often concrete. Also, to create a contrast of styles, it is advisable to have small minimalist and modern tables on which to place some drinks or magazines.

If you want to focus exclusively on comfort in an informal but stylish way it is better to opt for the lines of poufs and large pillows that serve as floating mattresses, small sofas and chaise longue.

Smart Working at Home

Smart working at home: how to furnish the office space at home.

molteni home office collection

Due also to the health emergency from corona virus the concept of office work has completely changed. The work of the new millennium is smart and mainly “from home”. The advantage is time management: in order to achieve the required goals or deadlines we can modulate it independently, the risk is that we never disconnect.

smart working

Create a cozy environment.

In this new context, the boundaries between work and private life seem increasingly blurred and balancing needs is not always easy. It is advisable to create a small working corner all for us, even if you live in a small apartment, where you can arrange your working day in a harmonious way.

In today’s modern homes, an environment specifically dedicated to smart working, like a real studio, is a bit obsolete. Hence the need to set up a space inside the living room or even in a bedroom, with versatile and very elegant solutions. Let’s see some examples.

Avoid office furniture.

One very important thing: no desks and office chairs or cold materials, which remind us of the rigidity and formality of the workplace. The smart working  corner should be pleasant, welcoming and reflect our personality and tastes. So even a simple footstool could be used as a chair…

poliform concorde desk

A very important element is the lighting.

If your office corner is illuminated by natural light, this is sure to be a great luxury. Sunlight makes everything more relaxing not only for the spirit, but also for the view.

poliform home office collection

But in the evening or on dark days it is important to have a good source of artificial light at your disposal; for this you will need to choose the most suitable desk lamp.

poliform concorde desk 1

Finally, don’t forget the comfort!

If, as in this period, you are forced to work from home for many hours, choose ergonomic, enveloping armchairs, perhaps even with a high backrest that allows the spine to remain straight.

The Potential of the Square Table

desalto element table

The potential of the square table: square tables are less common than other shapes but they’re actually more versatile.

desalto fan table

The square table is less common in our houses than the rectangular or round one. This is because in order to perform at its best (and not remember the small bar tables) it must have the side of a certain width (at least 90 cm).

Why you should choose a square table.

If the shape of the room is square instead of rectangular, the square table proves to be an appropriate and also original choice. Moreover, it is the shape that best suits interiors that wink to the East, with minimalist and very trendy furnishings. The square table fills the room with extreme elegance without being too invasive, which is why many young couples opt for this solution.

f you are more than four people in the family or if you often invite friends home, opt for a square extendable table; when everyone has left it can be closed without the slightest effort.

How to place a square table.

The same positioning guidelines apply to square tables as to round tables: they fit well in unstretched spaces. Scenographic and impact, if large they require a suitable area.

Get the look: Skorpio table Cattelan Italia

Positioned at 45° to the walls, instead of parallel, the square tables make the chairs more comfortable. Since the four sides are equal, calculate that the minimum space per diner is 70 cm (the proximity to the corners would cause annoying overlaps). To put 8 people at the table, you need tops over 140 cm on each side.

cattelan italia skorpio table 1

The ideal location of the dining area is next to a window, to enjoy maximum natural light. A light source should then be provided in the centre, with a single chandelier or several suspensions however grouped, depending on the size of the top.
