Now it’s time to sit back and look at some images of furniture, observe and use them for your design inspiration.

This furniture is very inviting and rich in color and it’s form has traditional heritage but the design is very causal and contemporary. It appears welcoming and encourages people to sit next to each other on it. I love the deep blue color as it makes a statement against the stained glass backdrop.

Simplicity – a functional chair, the Charles and Ray Eames DSW chair. Timeless design and seen used in many rooms as a side chair, dining chair, occasional chair. Unfortunately many of these are copies as the true originals have a quality price tag. I think we will continue to see this chair for generations to come as go design survives the test of time.

Not everyone’s cup of tea! But an interesting sofa.

I don’t know who designed this sofa, but I like it because I haven’t seen it before. Don’t you love originality, I do. The organic form of the sofa looks like it could sit out in the garden and be happy. I’d love to hear from you if you know who designed it.

Another timeless piece of design, revolutionary and ground breaking design. The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman. Made of molded plywood and leather, it was designed by Charles and Ray Eames for the Herman Miller furniture company. It was released in 1956, molding plywood was a ground breaking achievement after years of development by the designer couple. The concept of the chair was to create a well used warm and comfortable first baseman’s mitt.

Fiberglass chairs - a sculptural form
Fiberglass chairs – a sculptural form

This molded fiberglass chair was just too cool not to add to this selection. Once again I am unsure who designed it as I haven’t seen it before so I am happy for your feedback. I love the organic form, the fluid lines, and the use of color on the underside. A true sculptural piece of furniture.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at the traditional decorating photos to give you some design inspiration. More great photos, ideas and inspiration tomorrow. You can see Day One Lamps and Day Two Exterior Decorating.
