The Arco Lamp: The Center Of Your Decluttered Room

Although in principle it may not seem so, the decorating style and space’s organization are two things that influence each other directly, almost proportionally. No matter how careful the aesthetic aspect of a place is, the functionality can never be in a category too far apart; otherwise, it won’t be really useful to people. Imagine, for example, having a living room decorated in a clearly Mid-Century Modern style and having in it some iconic pieces such as the Eames Lounge Chair, the Arco lamp, a Noguchi table, a Barcelona sofa, and other amazing designs, and not being able to use it freely and fully enjoy its advantages because the furniture is always full of dirty clothes, toys, tools, books, the lamp is always occupied in other areas or disconnected, and the free space is very scarce due to the invasion of the disaster. As you can see, design and function cannot be separated from beauty and vice-versa.

To make your task easier, do this checklist of pending things before making any drastic changes:

  • Organize the objects by categories and assign them a specific spot within the place. Make sure your Arco lamp replica is in a favorable place for you to use it.
  • Make sure there’s not an excess of elements present in each area. If you don’t see where to put so many gadgets, it may be time to give some things away and get rid of others.
  • Take note of any item you need to facilitate the task of maintaining order, be it a dresser, a trunk, or another type of furniture piece.
  • Spend a whole day doing this task and do it focusing on establishing an order that remains from that moment. Make order your permanent lifestyle and try to make it also that of your family.
