In the last blog we talked about one of the best minimalist sofa options; the Mario Bellini sofa and why this is a good candidate. In case you don’t like very eccentric pieces with rounded edges, you could also opt for a more classic and simple leather sofa with straight edges. The sofa we are talking about is the LC3 sofa. An aniline leather sofa that is filled with dense foam, which not only makes it optimal but is also quite comfortable.
Now, since the suggestion related to the furniture pieces is completed, it is time to talk about the considerations that you should take when decorating. Let’s continue!
You must keep the spaces wide and clean
By this we mean that you should avoid at all costs stacking and accumulating unnecessary objects. Instead,try to give away or sell -in case you are remodeling- objects that you think do not have any function in your house. Remember that minimalism is about as simple and necessary as possible.
Choose neutral or monotonous color palette
These options are best suited for minimalist styles due to the simple, clean look it creates. Opt for colors like white, beige and contrast them with their opposite color.
Note: The opposite color can only be displayed in accessories, never put a color like black on the walls, this will only make your space look small and dark.
Minimalism is the movement that has caused a stir since its inception. This movement is the one that is based on the famous phrase: less is more. In which you must have the minimum necessary to have an optimal and appropriate space for the activities that you are going to carry out in it. If you are interested in the minimalist movement and you are decorating or remodeling your home, this blog is for you! Here we will teach you a couple of basic considerations and furniture examples that will help you quickly achieve the main minimalist objectives. Let us begin!
Choose functional and simple furniture
The furniture that best adapts to minimalist concepts is the one that optimally offers the function of each piece, which means, with only the necessary materials and dimensions. An example of this is the Mario Bellini sofa. This is a quite functional sofa since it offers a modular feature, therefore you can distribute it at your convenience. You could even just place this furniture and it will not be necessary for accent chairs, since its pieces offer optimal seating and space for any type of family.
If you don’t know what a bean bag looks like, just watch any 90’s teen movie where the girl or boy sits talking on the phone with their friends lying down in the most comfortable way. Now, if you already know which furniture piece I’m talking about and it gives you a bit of nostalgia perhaps you now want to somehow include them in your living room without stopping the design from being sophisticated, today we bring you a list of sofas that look like giant puffs but retain a modern style and functional structure.
We will start the list with no more and no less than the Togo sofa. This sofa is a piece made by the icon of furniture design: Michael Ducaroy. This design has been in the market for more than forty years and without a doubt it continues to be a desired piece for retro, modern and functional styles. This sofa is upholstered in a very resistant and durable leather called aniline leather. But! It not only comes in this presentation, you can also find it upholstered in fabric.
In the previous blog, we mentioned one of the best sofa options that look like bean bags. We also explain why the Togo sofa is one of the most elegant and comfortable models on the market. Now is the time to show you a couple more sofas that will make your living room a pleasant place for all your guests!
The Mario Bellini sofa is another on the list of sofa options similar to puffs. This sofa also appears to be sitting directly on the ground as it has no visible legs or support. But, everything is an illusion! Since it has legs made of wood and covered by a special chemical which makes it resistant to humidity. The other materials used in the design of this great sofa are also a very good quality! Including the aniline leather upholstery -just like the one from the Togo sofa-, which makes the sofa have flashes of natural shine and natural stains from the original leather.
The Rowan modular customizable sectional by RH Teen is the last of our list. As you can see it has a very sophisticated structure and very large size. If you have a large family, this might be the option for you!
Looking for the perfect sofa? Finding the sofa that suits your needs can be a bit of a traumatic process. Choosing the purchase method to choose the color and style is something that at some point can frustrate us. A sofa is the centerpiece of all living rooms, it is what gives meaning to the room and even makes it possible for the person to differentiate a living room from the rest of the rooms. That is why this choice is one of the most important. But don’t worry! Today we bring you the Le Corbusier sofa. One of the most functional and classic options in case you are dealing with frustration related to the choice of your sofa.
The sofa we are talking about is nothing more and nothing less than the sofa LC3 Le Corbusier. A piece lined with aniline leather that reflects a natural shine due to the high quality and little process that this type of leather goes through. This sofa is not only a striking and elegant piece, but it also offers one of the thickest cushions in the furniture world.

Add an eye-catching mirror
Mirrors are a great way to create a focal point within the rooms. They come in a variety of styles, sizes and colors. So whether you have implemented a modern, mid-century or industrial style… They will be a mirror for you.
In the example you can see a Mario Bellini sofa with a large mirror behind it. If you pay attention, the frame of the mirror is contrasting perfectly with the color of the Camaleonda sofa.

Adding a console table will give you some benefits. Not only will it function as a distraction from awkward space, but it will also offer you additional space and storage. Perfect solution for those who face confined spaces and need to make the most of them.
Have you ever noticed the awkward space behind your modern sofa? It can be quite annoying if you are handling your own interior decoration, but it is actually easy to remove or refill.

This is a very modern and creative way to fill an unsightly space like the one behind your sofa.

Analyze the location
How much do you spend on public transportation or gasoline? Yes, more than a few dollars. Selecting a central area surrounded by schools, shops, hairdressers, etc. You won’t have to spend too much of your salary on the move.
Choose minimalist or mid-century modern
Choose one of these styles as they are simple and aesthetic. The structure of both styles is usually very attractive since they use multifunctional furniture and open spaces. Spaces do not usually have many home accents but tend to have the essentials arranged in an elegant way. Organic lines, timeless pieces, metal, and glass … are just some of the characteristics that these designs offer.
