There is a beauty to open plan living that no other floor plan can match. It provides the freedom to turn a space into whatever the heart’s desire. An entertainment area here? No, no! Rather a dining area because it’s nearer to the kitchen. Ag, let’s bend the rules! The Loft Living team knows exactly how you feel and have designed furniture that can conform to the requirements of your open plan space!
Create vignettes within the larger context of your open plan living space. That’s little stories or scenes, but in this context these scenes have a functional placement for living. For instance a great scene can be developed using Loft Living’s Studio Work Table and a series of pendant lights (let’s say, from Eurolux?) These together will demarcate the working space of your open plan space. Here, the lighting fixtures define the smaller space within the entire open plan space. The work table or even Loft Living’s Metal Frame Coffee Table can become subtle focal points.
Another way to set up a functional scene is to use rugs or wall colours. Loft Living has Assorted Sisal Rgs that might do the trick. Set apart the entertainment area from the dining are by hanging a rug as a physical partition. Paint the dining area cream and the work area mustard to define their spaces. Another great way to divide an open plan space is with a shelf, console or narrow bench, like Loft Living’s Rochester Console made from old elm and steel. Fill such a divider with plants to add colour and life.
