Last week I gave you a look into OZ Design’s new furniture range, which is split into four glorious collections; Arthouse, Coast, Abode and Global. This week, we’re going to delve further into the Arthouse collection (my favourite of the four), plus I’ll show you how you can work the pieces into your own home with ease!
This is a TLC Solution for OZ Design
Above and below are pictures from OZ Design’s Arthouse collection that perfectly demonstrate how to balance a room using colour. Above, the brand-spankin’ new Betty sofa, in a zesty orange hue, is paired with blue and green accessories to create both visual contrast and a sense of interest in the space.
I highly recommend using blue and orange together in a living room – especially in spring and summer – if you want to create a space that feels happy and vibrant.
The button detailing and low back on Betty makes it a modular with a definite difference; it feels modern and comfortable while giving a generous nod to a retro aesthetic.
Below, this setting featuring the divine Wallis armchair is a completely cohesive look; notice the circular pattern in the chair, ottoman and vessels? This repetition creates a scene that feels calm – even with such bright colours at play. Consider using repetition like this in a nook or reading zone, so you can sink into it with your fave book (or homewares mag!) minus the visual disruption.
Above and below it’s all about creating a living space that works, ensuring layout and proportion are carefully considered. Above, the Carson coffee table is one of the star pieces, with horizontal lines that evoke a sense of movement. The warm hues in this piece are perfectly balanced by the cool blue tones in the Tatler sofa.
Notice the tapered legs on the tables? This is the Danish design aesthetic executed perfectly – and it really gives these pieces a distinct point of difference. Side note: the cushions on that couch are at just the right number for a two-seater sofa. Any more than that and it would feel over-crowded!
Below the tones are super-cool and ideal for an Aussie summer. The complimentary piping on the divine Jazz sofa makes it feel rather bespoke, while the Vamp coffee table is at just the right height (it’s always best to ensure your coffee table is lower than the seats on your sofa).
The entire ethos of the Arthouse collection is to blend eclectic styles to create a room that feels uniquely yours. The setting below does this with flying colours – with that hypnotic Sienna armchair acting as the star of the show.
Creating a space that feels laid-back is all about choosing lines that aren’t too straight. The fluid lines in the Penny armchair above are such a good example of the sorts of shapes you should be looking for when you’re on the hunt for casual furniture. It’s fresh, fun and ultimately feels like a chair you can kick back in. Side note: words can barely describe how smitten I am with the Sari bookcase. The colour alone is giving me heart palpitations!
A hallway or entrance can be a tough space to deck out successfully. But a simple yet striking side board or hall table – paired with art – is an ideal way to complete this area of your home. The Vamp console is a great idea here because it’s streamline yet interesting. There’s a sense of simplistic here, and you need not overdo the accessories with a piece like this. Simply pull the colours from the drawer and mirror them in surrounding vases or prints and you’ve created a very welcoming scene!
