When starting fresh with a room, it can be hard to know where to begin. This is where it can help to have an inspiration. Inspiration can spring from many different places- a specific color, a certain piece of furniture, or even just a vibe that you would like the room to convey (ie soothing for a bedroom, motivating for an office).
The Century House had the opportunity this weekend to create a space for the MMoCA Holiday Art Fair. For this event, we pulled our inspiration from an existing room. While the finished spaces look very different, the two core pieces in this design are the same. Choosing different colors, switching leather for fabric, or adding festive accessories can make a familiar room look unrecognizable.
Our inspiration room used the O.P. Mobler Noon Sofa and the Knoll Risom Lounge Chair to create a sophisticated, modern living room. Pops of color give this room an energy that’s great for entertaining.
Our inspired MMoCA space has been planned around the same two pieces of furniture. We chose warm, fall color s, added more wood, and used the same sofa in brown wool to create our Holiday Lounge. Add a bold Fatboy Beanbag, and you have created an inviting space with a more casual appearance.
Design is a process, triggered by imagination and inspiration. People often use the phrase, “this room just came together”. Just as often, what is missing from that sentence is the phrase “once we found…” Here the same two pieces of furniture have inspired two different but equally beautiful spaces. Finding your own inspiration can allow you to create your own unique and beautiful space.
