The Arco Lamp: a Symbol Of Greatness

It can’t be denied that the Arco lamp is iconic for several reasons, but one of the most important is the impressive piece of solid marble that makes up its base. This so recognized and popular design of the Castiglioni brothers weighs in its entirety around 65 kilograms, and around 80% of that weight is all concentrated in the base.

This base is not like the base of an average floor lamp in its category, and this is obvious. Broadly speaking, it’s a parallelepiped made entirely of a solid piece of white Carrara marble. Some very selected replicas also use black marble.

The Arco Lamp

The reasons why this type of marble was chosen precisely for the base of this artifact are several, all very important and considerable: firstly, a sufficiently heavy material was needed to provide stability to the design, since having that characteristic curved shape, it needed a counterweight that would allow it to maintain its balance.

The concrete was a too rustic and unsightly material. Then, Carrara marble was soon chosen, not only because each piece of marble is a specimen extracted directly from nature but because it’s unmatched and irreplaceable, giving it amazing added value.

As if that were not enough, this type of marble is the same that was used in many architectural works from ancient Greece and the Roman Empire and in many works by the sculptor Michelangelo, including David. Having an Arco lamp replica like the one by Barcelona Designs in your living room is a symbol of greatness, status, and good taste.

Arco Floor Lamp

In addition to all of the above, it’s also an element that can be key to reinforcing your lighting design; mostly task-based lighting, which is essential for certain activities like reading or working in some areas. As you can see, there are many reasons that can make this piece the stellar design of your layout.

The Bellini Sofa: Reaching The Next Level of Sophistication

Much has been said that modern furniture is made to promote innovation in interior design and decor, especially sofas. This innovation has been entrenched since the heyday of Mid-Century Modern. However, in that regard, probably no other type of sofa has taken as many steps forward as modular sofas. Within this category, there are models such as the Bellini sofa, a design that rethought the way of manufacturing this type of piece and took its structure and technical functionality to the next level of sophistication and flexibility.

To have a Mario Bellini Camaleonda sofa is to have several models of sofas simultaneously, and that’s something the famous Italian creator knew when he conceived the system of hooks and cables that make up the anatomy of this piece.

It’s common for people in modern environments to seek dynamism. MCM has much more to offer than minimalist, appealing, and fresh settings made for efficient living. Style has many ways of manifesting itself, and a modular sofa is a reliable example of this.

Never forget that, both aesthetically and functionally, there are remarkable differences between a sectional, a linear sofa, a corner sofa, and a sofa with an ottoman. All are convenient in their way, in their environment, and according to how each user can take advantage of it.

Those who have chosen this model as the focal point of their living rooms can offer a faithful testimony of this, both in its leather version and in its other presentations.

Many times, the magic is in the details, but when we feel that something is missing, we can think of accessories that represent a great functional and aesthetic contribution. The Bellini ottoman, for example, is one of those accessories that can make your main sofa an amazing resting place.

The Bellini Ottoman

The Bellini sofa is obviously the perfect piece to use for this particular ottoman model because it was simply designed for just that purpose. It’s a product in which the details were as well taken care of as in the sofa with which it matches: frame made from naturally rot-resistant Merbau wood, no chemical treatment, constructed of shaped polyurethane foam with 3 distinct dense layers, solid wood legs with black stain fabric, and aniline/vintage leather upholstery. Simply something that looks and feels amazing.

Many people use the ottoman as a coffee table, but its main use is intended as an annex to the sofa to rest your legs or even lie down. The Bellini ottoman is no exception, although it wouldn’t look bad if you decide to make it a place to have your drinks and snacks during a Netflix session, just as if it were a small table; just be sure to protect it from stains from food, drinks, or very hot temperatures.

Why An LC3 Sofa & Mirrored Walls Are The Perfect Duo For Small Living Rooms (II/II)

In the previous blog, we explained some tricks to choose the appropriate furniture for small living rooms. In addition, we mention as an example the LC3 sofa as an optimal and adaptable piece to spaces with small dimensions.

Now is the time to show you how through glass walls, it is possible to amplify the perception we have of a place. For this, let’s check this example where the designer has implemented a whole glass wall just behind a gorgeous Womb chair. As you can see, he created a simple but yet elegant reading corner.

Our eye is very easy to fool, and this is the goal of this design, to make you believe that there is a completely different room.

Thanks to the reflection that the mirror gives behind the Womb chair, the perception of the size of that living room changes. 

You can easily recreate this same trick at home. It is recommended that the mirrors that you are going to implement be placed behind the furniture such as the sofa or a lounge chair, so that they reflect the back of the furniture pieces and thus collaborate with the illusion that we want to create.
