Much more than transitional spaces that lead to other rooms, hallways form an important part of our homes – and yet they’re easily overlooked in terms of design, often becoming little more than a functional corridor that no one really lingers in or remembers.
To inspire your creativity, we’ve designed a hallway that functions on multiple levels. Still a high-traffic area, the space has been divided into two distinct zones, making it a more dynamic area in which to spend time. The first is a seating area that’s composed of twin SAMARA armchairs, which use contrast piping to emphasise the design’s subtly scalloped silhouette, and a double-volume SEATTLE side table, which introduces an interesting materiality through its blend of glossy wood veneer, stone and brushed brass. Established window-side, this arrangement provides the perfect spot in which to relax, read or chat on the phone.
Opposite, a versatile organisational corner accessorises our alluring OKAYAMA console, which layers different shades of solid wood and veneer to define its silhouette, with a sculptural CORFU table lamp, circular DURBAN mirror and upholstered BURGOS stool, offering a place to focus on bills, homework, hobbies or remote working. Displayed amongst all of these functional furniture designs are artworks, books, ornaments and plants – an assortment of things that instantly make a space such as a hallway feel more homely.
Of course, in terms of décor, hallways also have to work perfectly with the rooms that lead off them, which is why we opted for timeless palette of organic, neutral hues, with low lights of rich, dark wood and highlights of glistening brushed brass. The result is a space that feels calm, collected and is a joy to spend time in.
