From the hallway to the bedroom, each room of our home speaks volumes about us, makes our tastes visible and conveys our style through the choices we make with regards to furnishing. Archiproducts’ “Furniture” section offers a wide selection of furniture for the living area, sofas and armchairs for the relax area as well as tables and chairs for the dining area, next to bookshelves and cabin units and a rich section for the sleeping area that includes the kids bedrooms.
Choosing the furniture: between aesthetics and functionality
Choosing the house furniture is from many perspectives a very delicate phase. The furniture indeed helps us customize a space, wash it with our personal style and even transform it radically over time. But it’s not just that. Next to aesthetics, the furniture needs to be chosen based on functionality, adapting all elements to the space size, because a good project of interior design can improve our daily life. Either we have a multi-floor villa, a loft, a tiny apartment or an attic, any house can be stunning and functional if it is furnished appropriately. A large house will need furniture that can enhance the spacious spaces, while a small house will have to be equipped with functional and made-to-measure elements. The choice of finishes and materials matters too. The right furniture can improve to the lighting of a poorly lit room, add to the character and style of a service room, or to the functionality of a transit space. It happens at times that we are not one hundred percent sure on how we want a room to be equipped or a space to be furnished and we are afraid of making choices we could regret. In such cases it is better to ask for the help of a professional who will be able to interpret our needs and reconcile style and functionality.
Design furniture: from the living to the sleeping area
A full project of interior design encompasses a multitude of products, objects and models of the most diverse shapes and materials. From iconic classic-inspired pieces to more modular contemporary solutions, the furnishing composition can make use of elements with common or contrasting characteristics, for a striking mix&match effect. In tinier apartments, the living area is often the only open space that includes an area for relaxation, the dining area and an open kitchen. Also in larger apartments, open space can be an aesthetic choice to make the spaces and their functions look more homogeneous and fluid. However, when renovating a historical building is often impossible to obtain a large common area, and therefore the functions remain separated each one in its dedicated space. Depending on the available space, the relax area is to be furnished with modular sofas and, where possible, also with a corner sofa or armchairs and footstools. The relax area is also the space where to watch the TV, normally furnished with a storage wall or a refined cupboard where the TV is positioned. Those who love reading will not deny themselves a bookshelf or a system of shelves and wall cabinets. For the dining area the choice is extremely wide and includes round or rectangular tables, extending or not, and elegant chairs coming in different materials and colors. With the smart working increasingly becoming an alternative working modality or one that is complementary to office work, we have found out the relevance of equipping an area of the house as a home office. A desk, a chair that is as much ergonomic as possible for a correct posture, a drawer unit or a bookshelf. The rich offer for the sleeping area includes single and double beds, among which there are also storage beds, very useful to store linens or for the seasonal wardrobe change. The furniture of the sleeping area will be completed by a wardrobe or a walk-in closet if there is plenty of space available, a chest of drawers and possibly bedside tables. Archiproducts has also a dedicated section for kids furniture with solutions that have been specifically thought to furnish kids and youth’s bedrooms.
The value of a quality piece of furniture
Once in a lifetime (and even more) we might need to move out and want some pieces of furniture to come along, for their intrinsic emotional value that goes well beyond their strict economic one. This is why it is better to opt for furnishing elements that last through time, designed and manufactured by designers and firms that care for the quality and use of the raw materials. Some pieces of furniture have entered the history of design and are at current exhibited by the most prestigious museums in the world; on the contrary our home furnishing needs to be used on a daily basis and in order to stand the test of time they have to be made with an aim to endure. Choosing a design piece of furniture means making a long-term choice, that we won’t have to repeat in a short time.
