How to furnish the living room: my inspirational selection for Maison & Objet


How to create a perfect living room? Each of us has his own tastes and ideas on how to furnish the living, some aim at functionality and others care more about style. What matters is always knowing how to set the right atmosphere.

For Maison & Objet I selected some design products that I considered among the most interesting and inspirational (you can find the original article here).


I have chosen furniture from Italian and foreign companies that can compose a living area with a refined taste and a strong personality. I created an inspirational moodboard for you to show the concept I developed in a more immediate visual format.


As I often do for my projects, I started from a research about living, in a general sense. The living, like other rooms in the house, has undergone an evolution over the years. There has been a transformation of dimensions, style and even of the furniture. From the optical motifs of the 70s it has reached the bourgeois elegance of the 80s and 90s. The years of 2000 have focused everything on minimalism, from which we then moved away to get to the classic revisited in a modern key in these days.


Stylistic evolution aside, the living area has always been the main area of ​​the house. This is where most of the time is spent, it is where we live human relationships the most.
For the moodboard I imagined an environment with clear walls, populated by green, black and gold, chosen for the furniture. These main colors delicately fill the shell of the room, also lit by fuchsia touches. Everywhere a harmonious aesthetic balance prevails, with sparkling peaks of eccentricity. Thanks to these balances I create a living with a bold personality, characterized by an elegant and refined atmosphere.

Protagonists of my inspirational moodboard chosen for Maison & Objet are:
