Classic Elegance in Living Room
Classical architecture refers to a style of architecture originally developed by Romans and Greeks. This style became an inspiration for generations of architects that followed. Typically it features design elements like symmetry, proportion, rhythm, harmony and many others, usually set in a backdrop of marble. Classical home architecture & interior design are an interplay of elegant shapes, fluid lines, and refined textiles. To keep up with the current times, this style needs to be adapted ever so slightly. Design 21 are pioneers in such design styles that are awe-inspiring, fluid, and very much an amalgamation of classic and contemporary styles. Here are some classical living rooms designed by Design 21 that successfully blend traditional elements in a contemporary luxury design.
One of the enduring hallmarks of a classic living room is wall panelling. The above-shown living room is both contemporary and classical, with the marble-covered coffee table enhancing the black marble-clad walls. The asymmetrical coffee table provides an additional level of contrast to the room, making it feel modern. Black marble with white veining used on the walls provide a colour and texture contrast in an otherwise beige room. The furniture and other decorative items are carefully played with to create the perfect balance. The exquisite wallpapers, monochrome colours with a touch of natural wood surfaces complement each other effortlessly. The classical wall panelling, modern furniture and chandelier with classical details tie the space in a monochrome opulence.
The above-shown living room leans more towards another example of a modern take on classical style. The walls in this room are kept muted and the furniture brings out the essence of the room. The chesterfield patterned sofas are placed in a way that emphasizes the evident symmetry in the room. The classical vibe of this room is specially enhanced with the use of artefacts, furniture, and accessories. So, in that sense, the room has a very classic base. One of the most attention-grabbing feature in this room lies in its lighting - while it has accent lighting, it also has table lamps. All the above-mentioned elements combine to create a home that is both modern and classical in design style.
Another basic tenet of having a classic room is playing in the shades of yellow and green. While this living room does use a lot of neutrals, the green has been replaced by royal blue to make it more refined. The classical features in this interior space include elements like jaali used as an accent and even sofa patterns creating a feeling of symmetry in a contemporary living room. The large ceiling that is a modern take on glass icicles ties the two sides of the seating areas together. The traditional or classic architecture style can lend itself to elegance and sophistication seamlessly. Design 21 is pioneering in combining traditional design methods in a modern design style.
