Please view the below techniques:
Traditional: Keeping in touch with the exterior architecture of the house, the client's sofas mixed with modern accent pieces compliment each other.
Contemporary: Always works and can never go wrong! Most people like this because model homes usually look like this.
Modern: This style usually depends on the architecture of the home, but clean lines and white tones are usually involved to make the space look bigger for a great selling point.

Onto Other News for This Summer's Forcast:
Flaster Concrete Wall & Floor Tiles
Designed by Andras Rudolf
Manufactured by Ivanka
The Budapest based company has a philosophy that focuses on the relationship between the materials used within architecture + design and their influence on each other. Ivanka products range from interiors to fashion, outdoor sculptures and now floor/ wall tiles.
Material: made of a high density fiber reinforced concrete, these medallions are reminiscent of traditional tiles from Morocco. Now as a modern product, these tiles create a high fashion, cozy feel for interiors and exteriors.
This just reminds me of a Luis Vuitton print for an A + D campaign ad. Fashion and interiors go hand in hand!
Available Sizes: 11.5" x 11.5" and 8.5 x 8.5". Install on an angle or across linear with spacers between each tile .

Presenting: Sayl by Herman Miller (manufacturer) & Yves Béhar (designer)
Design Feature: suspension bridge - frame less back, which encourages full range of movement
Inspiration: San Francisco's Golden Bridge (city where the designer is from)
SAYL has 93% recyclable & eco-dematerialized which means they reduced the amount of material needed.
= less cost and smaller carbon footprint
The material is "stretched from the Y-Tower at the back of the chair just as cables are stretched from the towers of a suspension bridge.” Tension is greater wherever bodies need more support: these areas of SAYL are known as “hinge points.”
Love it! New technology for the furniture design world. What will be next!?

10 year's later.....
Henrik Thor-Larsen's Ovalia Egg Chair was exhibited at Scandinavian furniture fair and contributed to retro design.
PRESENT - Now designers are taking a whole new approach with the same ideology for inspiration.
Emma Selzer has designed a wooded laminate workstation in the form of an egg. This pod like structure can be suspended and also swivel in a 360.
Philippe Starck has designed the "Play Collection" for Dedon, who are known for their outdoor furniture especially
in regards to their woven polypropylene.
Many styles of hanging lounger, floor lounger, and assembled on the platform where one could rest their drink beside them ;) I believe it's inspiration was a half pitted papaya.
