The birth of the Ethnic Asian style was during the reign of the Han dynasty. Artisans of that era were known for building stools, the legs of which were designed via an aesthetic guided by the minimalist principle, and by the concept of simple joinery. As people and their needs evolved, so did the design of their everyday furniture: the same stool became the foundation from which a table was created, and then a chair, with a backrest. Red as a color is synonymous with the Asian style of design.Craftsmen from Asia are also known to have widely used both red wood and rose wood because of their easy availability - one reason why we find furniture designed in this style to have a red-tinged finish. In more recent times, craftsmen are known to have used red polish as an imitation for redwood.
In this Ethnic Asian Living Room set in a high-rise apartment, our designers visualized a space dominated by clean lines and sleek furniture, with lively touches brought in via the chosen accessories. The three-seater sofa in ivory and the armchairs we chose for the seating area do not occupy much space, and are very comfortable. We positioned them against a vividly monochromatic wallpaper, that speaks volumes about Asian style through its pattern. The three mirrors on the wallpaper provide a sense of spatial balance, as well as add a touch of glamour to this space.
The vibrant red rug introduces color and warmth to the space, and ensure that the 'Asian' look is well-represented in this living room. The cushions chosen for the sofa add a pop of color to the neutral fabric and also complement the other dashes of brightness in the room. Our choice of colors contributes to the balance intended for this space. A set of planters placed on either side of the sofa set are meant to bring in a feeling of nature, an important characteristic of Asian decor.
The Sydney three-seater sofa, combined with a pair of armchairs, is a perfect choice to create a lounge-like atmosphere.
