Kitchen Dining Combo

This space is a very interesting combination of minimalist modern, eclectic bohemian and colourful monotone!  A seemingly disparate selection is made to work quite effortlessly – but how?

·         Colour – the cabinets and floor are a very neutral tone which allows the colours in the room prominence.  Whilst striking, the colours are not strident and all share the same soft palette.  Finally, each block of colour in the room is echoed in the patterned floral of the sofa upholstery which brings the separate elements together.

·          Levels – there are four distinct levels visible in this room (benchtop, table, seating, sofa) which could look either clinical or messy, but here the addition of large, curved pendant lights, dining benches with coloured seat cushions and the very unusual couch arrangement makes for a cohesive whole which invites us in.

·         Texture – we have timber laminate, leather, 2-pac, corduroy, flowers, fruit and floral upholstery all of which add interest and contrast.  Imagine how dull this space would be if everything was in shades of brown and the sofa matched the bench cushions which matched the pendants?!  Boring... 

Texture, colour and variety bring warmth and interest to a space and make a home.  Eco Chic has some suggestions to get you started... Try our Atelier Bench or Loft Dining Bench for alternative kitchen / dining seating and we can make custom cushions for you.  Check out our Custom Pendants for a truly personal lighting interpretation.  If you’d like a very eclectic, personal sofa, we can upholster any of our sofas in your selection, just check out Custom Upholstery section.
