Loft style chairs
In the last century, a rather interesting and creative “loft” interior style was born. Then and now he is the choice of creative and extraordinary personalities. Originality of the direction is manifested in everything: furniture, wall and floor covering, accessories.
To create a unique space, corresponding to the modern trends of this style, you need to choose the right furniture. The chairs, made with taste and in accordance with all the rules, will bring special notes into the interior, add originality.
The main idea of the loft style is the combination of various design solutions. For example, the harmonious combination of elements of the old: unlined walls of brick, wooden floor, stairs, bare pipes, floors, and modern: equipment, metal and mirrors, in a single interior.
Loft - a word of foreign origin, the literal translation of which - "attic", “The room is upstairs,” the idea of creating such a style is of American origin. The basis of this direction includes such details as the maximum simplicity and functionality of furniture, the advantage of cold colors in the color palette, the presence of large windows, the absolute absence of decorative elements.
Loft-style furniture is currently valued highly enough; in this design decision, in addition to its functional role, it performs an important additional task, zoned room.
Furniture items can be diverse, but combinations of modern elements with antiques look more impressive.
In the manufacture of chairs in the loft style, different raw materials are used, both of natural origin and of artificial:
- solid wood or chipboard;
- plastic - polycarbonate or acryl, is now quite a popular material, characterized by high strength, low weight, having a rich color palette, transparency;
- a rock;
- various alloys of metals;
- natural or artificial leather, upholstery fabric.
These materials are perfectly combined with each other, harmoniously complement everything around, are used as a frame or decoration of chairs.
Loft-style chairs combine different scales of colors depending on the color palette of the room. For the interior in low-key colors, it is preferable to choose the color of the chairs, which will not highlight them against the general background of other pieces of furniture.
If there is a desire to bring in memorable accents, then the expressive bright colors of chairs or stools will help to play a leading role in furnishing the room and refresh its design.
For classic chairs, made "antique", preferably using shades white, gray, brown, cream color. When decorating walls with white brickwork, white wood chairs will help to complement the overall design of the room. Plastic chairs of various colors will become an original solution for a loft room setting, this accent will add attractiveness, brightness and originality.
A modern loft-style interior sometimes requires the presence of bright furnishings for both residential and non-residential premises. Orange, pink, bright green chairs perfectly diversify the appearance of the room, the main thing is to harmoniously combine with the color of the walls. A contrast of gray textured surfaces with leather chairs of bright colors (electric or purple) will look quite stylish.
Use in the interior
The main difference in the arrangement of furniture in this style is a small number of objects that are free standing in the room, preferably not facing the walls. The most relevant such accommodation will look in studio apartments, because with the help of furniture, and in this case, chairs, it will be possible to zone large spaces advantageously. For example, chairs, standing around the table in the middle of the room, will help separate the dining room from the kitchen.
Furniture in the style of loft, created by yourself, will help bring a variety to everyday life. This design direction has no boring everyday objects, and chairs in this style is no exception.
This is an example of challenging masculinity, combined with elegance and functionality, while they are distinguished by simple designs, give a wonderful mood in a cozy atmosphere of life.
A distinctive feature of the interior in the loft style is the original combination of old pieces of furniture made of metal or wood, successfully stylized to fit the plants or factories, with elements of modern finishes or interior components.
