Following up from my previous post about the interior inspiration we’re now starting to narrow down to a few favourites for our lounge. We’ve decided on keeping the white sofa for now, and perhaps swap it for a darker shade if the third family member decides to “enhance” it in any way…
For the table we’ve narrowed down to two favourites. The striking remake of one of the most significative pieces of the 80s, the classic Alanda by Paolo Piva has been on my wishlist for some time. I love the geometrical shapes of the upturned pyramids which changes from whichever angle you’re resting your eyes on it. The square model with the dark smoked glass is my favourite. Perfection! Such a great canvas for coffee table books, flowers and little ornaments.
…but there is another table that has my heart beating a little faster too. It’s a stunning block of delicious black marble which would bring a modern touch to the original wooden herringbone floors in this old 20s house.
I’m massively influenced by Lena Terlutter’s lounge on this one! I really like her style and the relaxed feel of her lounge. Definitely copying the idea of two large standing photographies behind the sofa as well. Actually, I like everything in her lounge!
Which brings us to the carpet. I adore the fluffiness, but the practical little voice inside my head is whispering warnings about how annoying it must be to vacuum clean the fluff. Or, even worse, for sticky little baby fingers to hide sticky little fruit bits in it. I have doggies and I know what nastiness those cute little faces are able to pull off, and I’ve heard the stories about the tricks of the innocent looking baby faces. But then again, surely OUR baby will be different and I will be able to teach him/her from an early age how to behave (LOL). The alternative to a fluffy carpet would be bamboo silk which is also nice of course. Decisions, decisions..
At least we’ve managed to decide on one thing, lounge chairs! I’ve already ordered this amazing chair which was an absolute bargain at only 230 eur! (affiliate link)
Which table is your favourite? x
