Animal Prints Meet Modern Interiors

Posted by Team GFURN on

Tiger Year, Favorable Home Decor Ideas, Food and Clothing with Black Stripes

Who doesn’t love animal prints of all sorts? Leopard spots, tiger stripes, zebra in black and white and on and on. They’re everywhere. But, as part of modern decor? Let’s see about that. If you’re looking for over-the-top, see a recent post we called “Stunning Rooms: Unexpected Touches.” Today we’re talking chic, stylish, restrained use of animal prints. However, some may dispute whether leopard spot wallpaper is restrained, and we accept that as a valid point of view. But overall, we’ve tried to bring you modern good looks with a touch of animal.

At the beginning of this post, you see zebra meets modern meets awesome. A massive mirror reflects it all--a sleek white console table, modern tabletop accessories with a beautiful upholstered bench--totally modern and gorgeous.

Below, an appealing mix of animal print fabrics cover a pair of comfortable lounge chairs and throw pillows on the sofa include animal prints and wide stripes. It’s a lovely light-filled space.

And here’s that modern leopard spot wallpaper. It looks like it belongs in this space with a Mid-Century Eiffel Chair and contemporary white desk. Kudos for a great pairing of wallpaper and furniture!

The solid acacia wood Torrell Bench would look awesome with animal print cushions. The finish is called Woodline mocha.

The Fidel Console Table could elevate a modern foyer and could reach new stylish heights with the addition of a bench upholstered in a charming zebra print. We love that idea.

Which of the three rooms above is your favorite? We hope we’ve inspired you to give animal print a try in your modern home. Easy does it, just a touch and you’ll know if you love zebra, leopard, or tiger with modern style. If animal prints suit your design aesthetic, then you can use it to personalize your modern interior spaces, to set them apart from others. Let us know how you add distinctive touches to your modern home. We would love to hear from you. Share photos with us on our Instagram if you wish.

There’s something so appealing about vintage modern bathroom designs--a little bit retro and oh so Mid-Century. Charming and stylish, these bathrooms catch our attention at every turn. The master bath shown above is a great example, Here, the word of the day is tile. Ceramic tiles in different tones of blue cover the floor and walls giving the room a cool watery look.

Create a Modern Foyer to Welcome Everyone

Posted by Team GFURN on

Now, many of us are not opening our homes to lots of visitors and limiting the size of our gatherings, but we can still plan. From a grand entry hall to a diminutive apartment foyer, modern style has your back. Whether you are furnishing a super contemporary space or a room with traditional architectural elements, modern furnishings will fit right in beautifully as you’ll see in the entry shown below.

Foyer | Front Door | Welcome Home | Interiors

Metal and glass create a sleek modern console table set in front of a massive framed wall mirror--a perfect merging of modern and traditional. Exposed wood and duct work on the ceiling add to the contemporary feel of the dining room beyond.

If you have room, a small foyer is always a great place for a modern leather bench or daybed. We approve of that beautiful color palette and the awesome wallpaper choice.

In the entryway above, modern meets traditional in a fabulous collaboration. And an appealing bonus in the photographic artwork. Who can resist such a happy pup? The watery blue background in the photo adds a pop of color to the space.

This reproduction Bertoia Bench will add a touch of modern to any size foyer. Wood and metal never looked so good. We love this bench.

The Driftwood console table with hairpin legs is just waiting to find a place of honor in your modern foyer. It’s handcrafted of solid acacia wood for a one of a kind looks.

So, you see, no matter the size of your entryway, it can be made better with the addition of a few pieces that exemplify modern style. A bench, a console table, perhaps a chair and some colorful wall art, all would make your foyer more stylish and more welcoming for everyone, friends, and family alike. One day soon, we’ll be able to throw the front door open and again say hello to the good company of those we’ve missed so dearly during this time of self-isolation and keeping others safe and healthy. If we, at Gfurn, can help get your foyer ready to receive those special guests, we’re ready to assist you.

The Many Faces of Boho II

Posted by Team GFURN on

Modern Bohemian interiors can benefit from many of the cues seen in traditional Boho style. Even a cursory survey of the appealing elements of what we consider conventional Boho interiors shows us some exceptional takeaways that can easily be transferred to modern Bohemian spaces. Today, let’s explore some of those elements:

Vibrant pattern and color are two of the hallmarks of traditional Boho style. The living room below shows off colorful patterns set against a white backdrop. Flowers and plants are often seen in Bohemian rooms. Here, rather than greenery, tiny bouquets and tall branches are perfect additions.

While bright color is more expected, some traditional Bohemian interiors are built upon muted desert tones as seen in this pleasant living room. The stylized cactus is a charming whimsical touch on the wall.

This eye-catching Boho living space is filled with green plants and a large pop of botanical art. Modern furniture seems quite at home in this setting. The gorgeous colors in the tribal rug anchor the room beautifully.

The Werner Circle Chair is the perfect modern chair for inclusion in any Boho space. The awesome woven frame is stained in a choice of Ash, Walnut-stained ash, or American walnut, while the back and seat cushions are available in nine different fabric and color combinations from white leather to black wool or leather. We are captivated by the design detail of this Boho chair.

The Many Faces of Boho Style I

Posted by Team GFURN on

Today’s modern Bohemian style is notable for its diverse color palettes. Some beautiful Boho spaces are light-filled and showcase light tones, even white accented with pastel hues. Other Bohemian rooms are dark and moody, while still others are an appealing combination of the two. Let’s look at those three faces of Boho style:

The living room shown below uses light and dark elements to great advantage. White walls and ceiling, sheer curtains as well as a sleek white modern sofa are stunning anchored by a multi-hued rug in deep tones. Isn’t it an awesome Boho look.
