Fundamental Furniture: The Allure of Minimalism
If you’re looking at basic functional furniture for your domicile, a good place to start is with minimalistic pieces. The timeless yet elegant designs add a utopian feel to any space, transcending interior styles to easily match with modern or even certain classic decors like the iconic Eames Lounge Chair. So for fans of simplicity who want something cool that doesn’t involve the usual Egg Chair and such, here are 5 furnishings to add to your collection.
Umbra Magino Stool
Sculpted from a single piece of acrylic, Umbra’s Clear Magino stool is the epitome of fluid minimalism. Designer Karim Rashid’s curvaceous masterpiece also doubles up as a stylish side table and features an integrated magazine rack in both legs for all your leisurely perusing. Ideal for small spaces and portable for convenience too.
Morgan Minimalist Queen Bedframe
Morgan’s queen-sized bedframe is a pure aesthetic beauty. Resting on brushed metal legs and finished in low gloss matte white, this visually elemental furniture is also crafted with round edges and compartmental headboard shelves, instantly giving any bedroom a space-age vibe. Simplicity has never looked so appealing.
Houzz Sector Nightstand
Featuring a metal and wood contrast, Houzz’s Sector Nightstand not only sits handsomely by your bedside but is also expansive. Maximising storage in its minimalistic design is made possible with a full drawer extension which slides smoothly out of its metal glides. Also available in a high gloss white veneer finish which would go perfectly with Morgan’s classic bed frame.
Amy Somerville Raconteur Sofa
Befitting of its name, the Raconteur Sofa is double sided, allowing you to have relaxed late night conversations over a nice tipple. This simple piece exudes class and adheres to all the high-quality finishes and detailing that define the brand. The lush “Camel” Mohair upholstery (shown above) featuring polished brass metal banding is also customisable with a selection of Amy Somerville’s finest materials.
Safavieh Ayla Coffee Table
Safavieh pays homage to form and function with its Ayla coffee table. Carved from ‘Antique Copper’ coloured iron, its unique rounded triangular surface sits on just three thin but sturdy legs, giving it a timeless appeal versatile enough to complement contemporary as well as neo-classical interiors.
