In a continuously switched-on world, creating a quiet corner at home where you can retreat and switch off is becoming increasingly important. Best of all all, you don’t need to allocate an entire room to this endeavour –¬ simply pick a relaxing spot away from the hustle and bustle of the house. You don’t need much kit either, just a few carefully selected furniture pieces and accessories, as a space that’s minimal and clutter-free will help calm the mind.
Let’s take a look at this contemplative corner for inspiration. The first thing you should factor in is comfortable seating that’s also aesthetically pleasing – a task fulfilled in this instance by a pair of our brand-new GSTAAD armchairs.
A sophisticated blend of plain and subtly patterned upholstery, the design’s distinctive silhouette is gracefully outlined with contrast piping. Accompanying this is another design from our 2021 collection: the HAMPTONS side table. A functional double-volume pedestal, its mirrored surfaces playfully reflect the light while providing space for books, drinks or other accessories.
Last but not least, it pays to think about the view from your quiet corner. If it’s an option, choose a spot with abundant natural light that looks onto nature – both so important for our mental and physical wellbeing. You can also, like this space, continue (or replicate) the mood-boosting nature theme with the addition of leafy green plants and botanical artworks. All that’s left to do is enjoy some quality time away from the stresses of daily life.
