Back to Vintage Style

Back to Vintage. The style that is coming back in fashion to save the environment, the wallet and regain the quality of the past.

knoll wassily chair

 

Vintage style has never really gone out of fashion. Many have been and still are  the lovers of this lifestyle, which in this period, more than ever, seems to have become a necessity. There are many reasons: economic crisis, environmental crisis, nostalgia for the quality with which objects were built in the past … The vintage mania has spread to all fields: clothing, home furnishings, travel, publishing, art and music…

But how is this full of charm style affecting interior design?

Decorating a house in a vintage style means surrounding yourself with personality, character, imperfections and charm. It is not necessary to randomly fill the house with lots of vintage objects or furniture, instead it is enough to choose carefully some pieces to be able to completely transform an environment creating an impressive visual impact.

It is advisable to start with small objects or a single piece of iconic design furniture that expresses all that there is to express. Don’t be afraid, in any case, to mix styles or colours (this is the beauty of interior design)… But without exaggerating!

Another secret to giving a touch of vintage style to an environment is to mix objects or/and furniture with neutral colors. Neutral colors have the ability to highlight the “imperfections” and the “lived-in” aspect of vintage.

The Minimalist Style

wogg roya armchair

The minimalist style. That’s how your home has to look to be truly minimalist.

wogg roya armchair

Minimalism is considered the purest expression of modern aesthetics; it entered our homes at the end of the last century as a manifesto of intentions, making the cleanliness and simplicity of its forms the rejection of a lifestyle dominated by the values of consumerism and emptiness appear. However, once the image of bare austerity that had characterized it in the nineties has been overcome, Minimalism changes, becomes softer and warmer, generating welcoming environments made of light and harmony.

wogg alfredo table

 

When the Minimalist style was born:

The expression “minimalism” spread in artistic contexts during the sixties, but its roots lie in the European cultural climate of the early twenties. Immediately after the First World War, indeed, in a climate of change and desire to overcome past experiences, Minimalism sees the light as an ideological movement even before as an aesthetic expression. Its origin is closely linked to the birth of the Modern Movement and Functionalism which, starting in 1919, were developed in the Bauhaus, a school founded in Germany by W. Gropius and which has become the most important forge of thought and experimentation in the fields of art, design and architecture. Minimalism contrasts with the historicism that had already emerged in art and architecture at the end of the 18th century. Through the elimination of ornamentation, considered useless and the legacy of an outdated culture, we want to enhance the beauty of what surrounds us. By eliminating what is superfluous, materials and forms are enhanced, there is no longer room for individualistic artifices and an essential, simple, universal design that is comprehensible to all is achieved. Its peculiarity is an aesthetic made of clean lines, flat surfaces, pure geometries and natural materials.

Why the Minimalist style is so popular:

Minimalism continues to be successful thanks to the universality of its principles. In an age marked by excesses, frenetic rhythms, artificial images overloaded with colours and details, the minimalist house marks the space of order, balance and serenity. The use of natural materials, first and foremost wood and stone, the use of a few colours – with a preference for white to maximise the diffusion of light – the simple geometries of the square and rectangle and, finally, the renunciation of objects that are not considered essential to everyday life, make up relaxed, intimate environments, where one can find oneself and take refuge from external chaos.

Let’s discover now how to give life to the house of our dreams:

The Living Room

Minimalist style doesn’t mean monastic life. Renouncing the superfluous in order to enhance the function of everything must, however, give rise to comfortable and welcoming environments, which invite you to rest and release well-being. The space in the photo conveys all this: a rigorous environment with clean, clean lines, no frills, yet warm and inviting thanks to the generously cushioned sofas.

The Dining Room

Here are other excellent examples of how minimalism and the home intimacy can coexist in perfect symbiosis. The dining area of these houses has been stripped of all frills: nothing disturbs the eye, nothing distracts from the function. And yet, if you look closely, there is nothing missing that could limit its use, nothing that would affect its practicality.
At the same time, the feeling we have is of an intimate and welcoming environment, far from the cold image that often accompanies the idea of minimalism.

The Studio

The studio is the home space where calm and order cannot be lacking, regardless of a life inspired by the principles of Minimalism. The need for balance, the need to withdraw into an introspective and reflective dimension impose the choice of a few, highly studied elements: a table, a chair and a lamp. Here, more than elsewhere, the lines become clean, the materials authentic, the basic colours suggest concentration.

The Bedroom

The bedroom is the real test  for those who want to try their hand at a minimalist lifestyle. In this environment, indeed, it is easy to lose sight of the rigor that leads to peace and balance. The minimalist bedroom is therefore sober, with sheets that are strictly white or, at most, grey. And the same can be said of the walls. The only colors allowed to interrupt the whiteness of the linen are those of wood or concrete, strictly natural.

Decorating a Small Living Room with Style

sancal talo

Decorating a small living room with style. Our best tips for a small and cozy living room.

sancal talo

Houses and apartments are getting smaller and smaller. In large cities, square metres are being drastically reduced and, as a result, the number of rooms available is also being reduced. In this context, the living room is often sacrificed and combined with the kitchen at the risk of losing welcome and even style. Let’s see then some tips for decorating a small living room with style!

sancal club

Multipurpose decoration

It’s the must for every season, indeed furniture and decorative objects have different functions. This not only saves space, but you can also change the decoration every time you get tired without your pocket suffering. For example poufs which can be turned into little benches or low stools which can be turned into coffee tables.

Another possibility is to buy a TV cabinet that incorporates drawers or shelves, so you can use it as a space saver. As for accessories, there are glass glasses that serve as vases, candle holders or ice buckets. If you have a wicker basket, you can use it to store blankets, pillows, magazines or anything else that comes to mind.

Choose small but comfortable sofas

The huge sofas with multiple seats occupy an entire corner of the room, if not more. Even an L-shaped sofa is a nuisance for small spaces: it recharges the room too much and leaves no room for other things. One or even two small coloured sofas will be a winning choice!

A great way to use the space is to combine the sofa with one or more poufs so that it acts as an extra place that you can move from one room to another in case of need.

Light, neutral and pastel colours

Light colours,  in pastel and neutral tones give a sense of spaciousness and luminosity. They represent a safe bet for a small living room. If you want to give a touch of more vivid color, take advantage of fabrics and accessories such as cushions, lampshades, blankets or carpets and place them in strategic points of the room. This way, you won’t overload the space and break with the monotony.

Playing with lighting

In a small living room, lighting is your best ally. If your room is provided with windows, take advantage of the natural light that comes in and do not use shutters or dark curtains. Also, do not put large furniture in front of the windows.

For what concerns the artificial light, it’s always better to avoid putting extravagant ceiling lamps that make your living room smaller. Use table lamps or floor lamps at strategic points, such as next to the sofa or on a coffee table, so that everything is in harmony and space remains free in the center of the room.

Coffee tables and side tables are of great help in the case of small living rooms: they can serve as a small central table or be placed on the sides of the sofa to rest things.

Bookcases to exploit the heights

For a small living room, order and cleanliness are essential. Also verticality. The more shelves or vertical furniture you use, the more space you have. As small as a living room, playing with heights is very useful to get the most out of the floor space, especially in long rooms where there is more chance that any furniture, floor plan or accessory will stay in the middle of the room.

How to furnish a house in the 70’s style. Lots of tips to furnish your home with the design inspired by the fashion of the 70’s.

 

copla armchair sancal

 

The style of the 70’s is returning to fashion and not only in cinema, clothing or music but also in interior design. The atmosphere of the past, the revolutionary feeling and the bright colors are slowly returning to the houses and upsetting the too sober and modern style that until now has been the master.

nosso armchair sancal

In the 70’s the hippie folk style invaded the living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens and bedrooms, transforming them from bon ton and representative environments to kaleidoscopic and colourful universes. This is how the open spaces rich in wooden furniture, natural fabrics and objects with abstract shapes were created.

sofa obi sancal

But now let’s get on with the advice to create an environment inspired by the 70’s.

Colourful Living room:

To create a 70s style in your living room, the key word is “mix colors”! Play, fill and exaggerate with colour and especially with warm colours; create strong contrasts between the sofa, the armchairs, the curtains and the cushions without being afraid of making a mistake. The important thing is to avoid monotony and banality!

Wooden Furniture:

In the typical 70’s house, one of the mainstays was represented by wood: a material that emits warmness and adapts to any environment and furniture. It can be used on tables, coffee tables, chairs, walls and floors, in short, almost anywhere, but be very careful not to turn the house into a mountain hut!

A bit of Hippie Style:

Adding a bit of hippie style is always a winning move to create a typical 70’s style environment giving rise, therefore, to an easy and comfy aesthetic directly linked to Indian and psychedelic culture. Totems, fringes, dazzling images and blinding colours…

The White Colour:

Despite the wide use of bright colors, in the 70s white was widely used. White, in fact, at that time became very fashionable because it represented the future; this fashion was born after the American landing on the Moon in 1969 and became the backdrop for many scenes of successful films: the first episode of Star Wars in 1977, the Milky Bar in Mechanical Orange in 1971, the Los Angeles interiors isolated in Zabriskie Point by Michelangelo Antonioni in 1970.

Psychedelic Wallpapers:

If you want to create a 70’s decoration you can’t avoid to insert the wallpaper! Crazy and bright colours, psychedelic and redundant designs and pure energy. You don’t need to cover all the walls you have available, just choose one to give a touch of pure color to the environment!

The Jungle Style

Sancal Collection Jungle img1

The Jungle style. Exotic influence turns your home into a Caribbean oasis.

 

the jungle style 1

 

Floral decorations and prints with large green leaves are the protagonists in environments that recall the atmosphere of distant countries.
The style of a house reflects who lives in it: the choice of a piece of furniture or the colour of the walls reflects the personality of those who love to make domestic spaces a place where they feel good, spending relaxing moments. This is also the case with the furnishings of the living room, par excellence the room to be dedicated to aperitifs with friends or to Sunday naps in the middle of the afternoon. Jungle style becomes fashionable, with its bright and bright colors that give life to a warm and welcoming environment. Used mainly for living room furniture, the Jungle style can also be very satisfying in the decoration of dining rooms, bathrooms and even bedrooms. Nature, impossible shapes, shadows, lights, bright colors, relaxation; all this defines this simple but well-kept style.

The Jungle style in the living room.

To make this place truly enjoyable, however, the attention to the selection of furniture that bring together design and functionality is not enough. What we need, in fact, is an eye for trends. In this regard, the styles that most intrigue designers and home decor enthusiasts are the tropical and jungle styles, both born as a declination of the style of exotic influences. Prints, complements and accessories that, for their colours and shapes, evoke journeys to distant lands and the atmospheres of tropical countries: these are the distinctive features that unite the two styles but there are also differences.

The Jungle style in the dining room.

Choosing the Jungle style for the dining room means giving life to an original space and making the home environment cheerful and witty. The predominant colour here is green, in all its shades, from the darkest and most intense to lime green. The purchases to be made immediately are a spotted wallpaper or with huge green leaves or vases with more particular shapes with large plants. The tropical style, on the other hand, evokes Caribbean atmospheres and finds its dominant feature in the accessories in the shape of pink flamingos. Another must-have that characterizes the tropical style is the pineapple, which is found in many pieces of furniture.

The Jungle style in the bedroom.

Raw wood, abundant plants, colourful sheets with large leaves and large carpets that create an almost magical atmosphere. The bedroom, furnished in the Jungle style, must be “magical”. We suggest choosing oversized carpets that cover almost the entire room, so you can walk barefoot, like in the jungle, without feeling the cold.

Timeless design pieces of furniture

vitra chaise longue

Timeless design pieces of furniture. The furniture that will stay with you when all the other furniture goes into the attic.

 

Do you know the saying “a diamond is forever”? In your opinion, is it possible, imagining our homes, to say the same thing, that is to say that “furnishing is forever”? The question arises spontaneously when you are about to furnish your home and you are attracted by furniture inspired by the latest design trends: the fear, however, is that, in a few years, they appear outdated and unpleasant. In reality, there are timeless pieces, true classics of furniture, that escape the whirlwind of fashion and preserve their beauty over time. They are often “smart” pieces which, due to their function or small size, can, over time, be moved from one room to another or even be reinvented, but which we will never tire of.

The Console

The console is one of the eternal furnishings, present regardless of fashions and styles within each home. It is a container and, for this reason, useful and appreciated and has the ability to furnish different environments. Especially when small, we can find it at the entrance or in the corridor, in the bathroom, kitchen and, of course, in the living room. Like all classics, the console is a wild card that finds space in environments furnished with furniture of every style, which can be placed side by side with continuity or, alternatively, in contrast if you want to create a design accent.

The Bar Cabinet

Among the small pieces of furniture, the bar cabinet deserves a special mention. It is one of those objects that stands there in a corner, a little ‘forgotten, and yet has never lost its value and appeal. Proof of this is that there is no designer who does not boast a shout in his production. Whether it is modern and minimal or precious and hyper-decorated, the bar cabinet easily finds space between the sofas or next to the window, often adding a flirtatious twist to the furnishings of the entire room.

An Icon of Design

In the last twenty years we have witnessed the so-called democratization of design, which has brought objects of great design even inside the most common homes. Buying an icon of modern or contemporary design means adding quality and distinctiveness to the furniture and it is now customary to pass it from mother to child like the old window or the table of grandparents. A sixties lamp, eighties chairs or a coffee table from the year 2000 will find their place among the other furniture, perhaps beautiful, but certainly more anonymous, without ever getting tired of being admired.

The Light-Coloured Sofa

The light-coloured sofa is equivalent in its furnishings to what the black sheath dress represents for a woman’s wardrobe: a fundamental item. Whether in leather or fabric, the clarity of a white or light sofa gives warmth and spontaneous elegance to the environment and, of course, can approach different atmospheres. Excellent in both classic and contemporary environments, it loves both warm and cold colours and can be personalised and always updated in a thousand ways, playing with cushions and plaids.

The Round Table

Another piece of furniture that we can buy without worrying that in a few years we might get tired is the round table. Here, too, it doesn’t matter whether in glass or marble and with a contemporary line or in the warm dark tones of wood and with sinuous classic lines. The round table has the advantage of being comfortable where space is lacking and we can accompany it to light and informal seats as well as structured and welcoming armchairs. It is often enhanced by creating a pleasant contrast with the rest of the furniture, choosing a solid material model on a modern furniture or vice versa if you have opted for furniture in style.

Floor Lamps

For the floor lamps, the same is valid as for the bar furniture: they have always been in our homes, sometimes they seem to hide in the corners and then come back again as protagonists. Their characteristic is to be “totemic”, to have a strong sculptural presence and therefore to act as furniture. There are different types and very different shapes. And then they light up, coming in handy next to an armchair for reading, combined with a wall for those who love soft indirect light or, near the dining table or the sofa area, to replace the most common chandelier.

The Mirror

There are objects that are handed down from generation to generation to which one recognizes the ability to preserve and transmit family affections. Among these there are the furniture and among the furniture the mirror wins. Perhaps because in past centuries the mirror was a rare and expensive object, it confirms its importance even in today’s homes, often acting as a focal point. An antique or modernist mirror can easily fit into the most varied contexts, succeeding in embellishing a corner or an entire room.

The Wooden Bed

Unlike other furnishings, the purchase of the bed undermines our certainties, because you rarely buy it thinking of replacing it over time. Fear is, therefore, that soon we will tire or that it appears dated. In fact, there are many types of bed that we find on the market, regardless of the alternation of fashions. Among these we recognize to the wooden bed just for the simplicity of the lines that characterize it, the ability to coexist with any type of furniture, affirming a timeless personality. In fact, even in the case of a possible change of house, or complete renovation, the old wooden bed will still find its place as a protagonist.

The Bergère Armchair

For everyone it is the grandmother’s armchair, but it continues to be the noblest of the seats and also the coolest. It was born in the eighteenth century and, it will be for the comfort of its soft padding, has never left our homes. Perfect for reading corners is often the ideal complement to the sofa area, succeeding with its many variations to deal with every style. From the most classic version, with its high back and wide armrests, to the models designed by the most fashionable designers, the bergère never loses its fundamental features, which are the comfort of the seat and the possibility of being inserted in every room of the house.

The Guide for a Perfect Living Room. How to choose the right furniture and how to arrange them to better furnish the space.

 

living room decor ideas

 

The living room represents the heart of the house, indeed, it is the image. It is the environment in which we spend the most time, in which we meet with friends and relatives, where we sit down for moments of relaxation in front of the TV or with a good book. Yet, even if we take it for granted that there are furnishings to be included, it is not at all easy to create the room we have in mind. In our living room there will be sofas and armchairs, cupboards, shelves, tables and paintings, but how do we advance in the choice of furniture and how do we distribute them in the environment to get a good result? What follows is a small, well thought-out guide for a perfect living room.

 

The Sofa:

 

living room sofa ideas

The sofa is the essential element of any living room. Normally it is the first thing you buy and it is the key element for the choice of the rest of the furniture. However, before you can even buy your beloved model, you need to talk about measures here. Let’s start by saying that usually a single sofa is enough and that it will have to fit into a room along with other furniture. The sofa must be in proportion to the size of the room and oversized models must be avoided even when space is at a premium. In these cases it is preferable to opt for two smaller sofas, with two or two and a half seats: they will better define the relaxation area and will be more practical and functional.

living room armchairs ideas

Choosing a comfortable but not bulky sofa allows you to complete the conversation area and TV with other chairs, such as armchairs or chairs, that furnish and come in handy when you receive guests. If the space is not sufficient to accommodate one or two armchairs of the same model as the sofa, you can opt for armchairs or chairs recovered from family furniture that will give the environment warmth and personality.

Another essential element of the living room is the coffee table. This useful table becomes an opportunity to characterize the space and give strength and originality to the room: just observe a few rules. Choose an original model, which is in agreement with the rest of the furniture or that breaks with it; always opt for a low model: it will not “fall out” with the sofa and will be more practical to rest on books, vases and anything else. Or, when you have enough space, we can replace the classic front table with a comfortable pouf.

The Rug:

 

living room rugs ideas

It may sound strange, but furnishing your living room starting from the carpet can help us to get on the right track right away. The carpet, in fact, delimits the space within and around which the seats and accessory furnishings will be placed, creating a mesh within which it will be easier to organize all the elements. In addition, the carpets can act as a focal point when in counterpoint to the style of other furnishings. Avoid carpets that are small in relation to the proportions of the relaxation area; a carpet that is large enough will give importance to the entire living room.
