A move towards using materials that bring natural warmth and freshness into urban interiors is undoubtedly on the up. That is set to continue in 2017 with homeowners opting to give their home‚s a gorgeous, green upgrade. Adding indoor plants to the living room, bedroom, kitchen or even hallway is an inexpensive and easy makeover idea that is also currently ‚cool‚. Of course, finding inventive new ways to display this green tinge elevates the charm of this eco-friendly addition further. Be it sparkling metallic pots, a living wall or even a wall of green that acts as a room divider; green is surely in once again!
And our top pick in this category for early 2017 is undoubtedly the Dante Come as You Are Bar Cart designed by Christophe de la Fontaine. This sleek, striking and seemingly sculptural bar cart is both sophisticated and playful in its design.

Available in black, white gold and champagne red, this is a bar cart built to steal the spotlight.
The bedroom workspace is even more useful in the tween and teen bedrooms where the study zone and future workspace can come together effortlessly. Allowing the kids‚ room to transition into the teen room a smart workstation can make a big difference to the overall ambiance. Add a few smart cabinets and a couple of floating shelves and the previously dull corner now becomes a center of activity. Most modern work desks are heavily influenced by the simplicity and innate frugality of Scandinavian design. Nordic influences play a major role in shaping some of the best home office desks of 2017 and that include stunning delights from La Forma, ARTISAN and Coreone that you see below. Each of these desks has a subtle style of its own even while blending modernity with Scandinavian panache.
Minute details make a big difference to the larger picture and it is ultimately the smaller design and decorating choices that define the style of your home. It is the couch, coffee table and the TV unit that might largely set the mood in your living room, but you still need a cool end table or side table to truly complete the setting. Despite their seemingly modest presence, end tables make your life a whole lot easier even while adding another unique dimension to the living space. Often overlooked, these versatile additions also find a place beyond just the corner next to the couch! A smart side table or end table is a space-savvy choice that is as much about aesthetics as it is about practicality. While there are endless choices around, we have today the 20 best and latest side and end tables out there that pack a big punch despite their small size.
Modular shelves can offer a whole lot more than just storage and display space. They provide the perfect medium for those looking to add color and contrast to an interior without disturbing the existing style, decorative plan or even color scheme. Floating shelves in dark hues that complement the existing accent color in the room make a bold visual impact. Others can bring unique materials to contemporary spaces like steel, wood, copper or glass. Then there are geo shelves that instantly stand out in a world filled with rectangles and squares. Be it a shelf shaped like a triangle or one that is much more multifaceted like the hexagon, these adaptable shelves are always fun to work with!
Norwegian designer Falke Svatun—a ‚graduate‚ of Norm Architects and Søren Rose Studio—designed the modern Synnes dining chair for Danish brand Menu. Svatun‚s chair is a wholly modern take on the classic Scandinavian dining chair, and references both spindle-back and laminate shell chairs. In Synnes, the thin curved wood backrest is inserted into the seat, providing comfort, stability and a most pleasing aesthetic.
