Playful Spaces - Modern Interior Looks for Kids

Posted by Team GFURN on

Rooms with a modern vibe don’t just consist of living rooms, dining rooms, and master bedrooms, kids’ spaces can also be made more comfortable and beautiful with iconic modern style. Go for a retro look or start with a few modern pieces like a child-size mid century chair or table and chairs or bring in modern lighting (lamps and hanging lights) and soft furnishings. Poufs, bean bag chairs, cushions, and throws can add to a warm and inviting environment in which a child can thrive.

Entertainment for All - Media Cabinets for Your Modern Living Spaces

Posted by Team GFURN on

Robert & Michael's MidCentury Pad

Pinterest

Today, modern media cabinets, either original or reproduction, are used in all sorts of ways in our living spaces. As seen above in this retro space, a small widescreen television is set atop the cabinet with a bookshelf running above and a small desk beside it. But, as you’ll see below, these versatile Mid-Century cabinets can be configured in other ways.

55 Vintage Mid Century Living Room Decor Ideas

In this chic light-filled modern living space, a large flat-screen TV is mounted on the wall above a beautiful media, not on top of it. But the cabinet adds its touch of Mid-Century design.

We love the look of warm sunny modern style in the living room below. A large wide-screen television on a stand is situated atop a low white and natural wood media cabinet with open shelves in the center. It’s the perfect addition to this inviting space. Doesn’t it say “come on in and stay awhile” with its comfortable modern vibe?

Kavi Media TV Unit

No television needed atop the Kavi media cabinet; we think this brilliant design stands on its own. Artisan-made of metal, cowhide, and wood, this media cabinet will surely be the center of attention no matter where it finds a modern home. This piece is appealing in so many ways.

Arjun Media TV Unit

The handmade Arjun is all about the wood, specifically the grain. We’re so smitten by the design of this media cabinet. It shows off a most appealing persona. Awesome good looks!

Right now, folks don’t always use the media cabinet in the exact way its Mid-Century designs envisioned it, but these great little pieces still have a special place in today’s modern spaces. They’re just right for the foyer, the living room, the family room, the den and… okay, so let’s say modern media cabinets will look perfect in just about any room in the house. Some homes may require more than one! And why not? With so many different looks, who could decide on just two, much less one. But for sure, just exploring all the available options will be fun.

Awesome Underfoot - Rugs for Modern Interiors

Valery's Colorful Mix in a Brooklyn Brownstone

Large area rugs can transform modern rooms. Change an area rug and see instantaneous results--no waiting for contractors or workmen. Select that one irresistible color and pattern that calls your name, whether online or in a brick and mortar store. Bring it home yourself, or if you find it online, have it shipped directly to your front door. Then you do the hardest part, moving the furniture to make way for your new and exciting look.

We love how the pattern in the rug above plays so well with the oversized art in black and white and the deep red seats and backs on the woven chairs.

About area rugs in modern dining rooms

All sorts of dining rooms can benefit area rugs underneath the table and chairs. Under the table and chairs is the key to success with rug-placement in the dining. Be sure the size of the rug allows for plenty of room for dining chairs to be pulled out and still be resting on the rug. Also, rugs for the dining room should be chosen with care (the fiber from which a rug is made should allow for easy clean up) because accidental spills will happen.

From the gorgeous modern chandelier to the beautiful rug on the floor, this inviting dining room is a great example of how a retro space should look. And did we mention how awesome we think Tolix chairs are?

Live in an open loft?

Those who have the opportunity to live in the open space that is a modern loft have the perfect opportunity to use multiple area rugs to define the different “rooms” that are mostly undefined in a loft. Think living room, dining room, home office, bedroom, and even the kitchen. A rug can immediately define each area’s perimeter. 

The main thing to remember here is that in choosing the color and pattern of each rug, you should consider how each floor covering will fit into the overall look of the space. The goal should be to create a cohesive, complementary design aesthetic.

Cristallo Rug - Pink

Made of Bikaner wool, the Cristallo area rug in glorious shades of pink would be a welcome addition to the bedroom. It would be warm and cozy underfoot.


Galaxy Rug - Light Grey

Galaxy Rug - Light Grey

The Galaxy Rug is crafted from leather and offered in light gray with touches of darker tones. We think it’s time to learn more about stunning leather rugs.

There are so many amazing ways to use area rugs in modern spaces that we definitely revisit this topic again soon. Shop our rug collection on Gfurn to find that perfect rug you’ve been searching for.

Gfurn Reflections - Wall Mirrors to Enhance Your Foyer or Entry Hall

Posted by Team GFURN on

Call it an entryway, foyer, entry hall or something else, the space just inside the front door welcomes you and your family home and gives guests a glimpse of what they’ll see in the rest of your home. No matter the size, whether spacious or tiny, that space can be made stylish and inviting.

Consider adding a mirror or two as a way to add light and make your modern entry hall seem larger and more open. Placed over either a table or a bench, a mirror reflects light from lamps, a ceiling light or a chandelier, if you’re fortunate enough to have a foyer with a soaring ceiling. A large mirror also reflects the room in front of it and giving the illusion of more space.

The modern foyer in the image below is filled with natural light. The space is defined by the variation in flooring. The pale herringbone pattern contrasts beautifully with the dark wood of the surrounding area. A large round mirror is set high above the narrow console table.
