Interior Décor: Minimalism Vs Maximalism

In the same way that people are all unique, so too are our homes. While some like to decorate their interiors with luxurious fabrics, gilded accessories and dazzling centre pieces, others prefer a laid-back, neutral space that is tranquil and beautiful in equal measure. From glamorous and colourful pieces to toned down, earthy options, we’ve rounded up the best furnishings to suit both minimalists and maximalists.

Rugs

Minimalism: Palma Abstract Rug

Perfect for low-key living rooms, the Palma Abstract Rug highlights the beauty of ‘less is more’ design. Inspired by contemporary and vintage patterns, the rug’s stripped-back surface is pretty enough to make an impact, but delicate enough to blend right in. With a stylish lived-in finish, the minimalistic Palma offers subtle silvery tones across its abstract arrangement.

Maximalism: Qashqai Multi Medallion Rug

On the opposite side of the spectrum lies the Qashqai Multi Medallion Rug. Bright, bold and beautiful, this boho piece was inspired by traditional Persian motifs. Though contemporary in its finish, the Qashqai also mimics classical Middle Eastern fabrics, thanks to its complex transitional medallion print. Sure to make a statement no matter where you place it, the Qashqai comes in three bold shades: red, cream and blue.

Sofas

Minimalism: Mood Sofa

In 2021, linen, neutral shades and voluptuous silhouettes are set to be three of the biggest interior design trends – and the Mood Sofa has all three! The ultimate style statement, this minimalistic couch is also extremely eye-catching. Exemplifying understated mid-century style, it boasts a rotund tuxedo shape, chunky arms, slim beech wood legs and chic linen upholstery. Cool, curvaceous and contemporary, the mood is strikingly simple.

Maximalism: Nepal Sofa

If you prefer something a little more daring, then the Nepal Sofa is definitely for you. Glamorous and sumptuous, it offers elegant curves, luxurious upholstery and exquisite embellishments reminiscent of the Art Deco era. The sofa’s classic silhouette is draped in both velvet and nubuck leather, creating a tactile finish. Complemented by delicate metallic accents, ruched arms and slender metal legs, the Nepal is one for lovers of all-out luxury.

Tables

Minimalism: Prizma Dining Table

Beautiful and refined, the Prizma Dining Table is also wonderfully stripped-back. Boasting a simple mid-century silhouette, this contemporary Scandinavian piece is decorated with a walnut veneer top that celebrates the beauty of natural wood. With long, splayed legs and elegant recessed edges, this pared-back piece enjoys a minimalistic finish.

Maximalism: Zen Dining Table

Perhaps your dining room is in need of some drama? If so, then the Zen Dining Table might just be for you. Glamourous, luxurious and high-end, the Zen is defined by its imposing starburst top, formed from natural walnut in several spectacular shades. Mimicking the sun’s rays, the table’s intricate surface is complemented by a glistering sled base embellished with gilded metal fins. The Zen isn’t just a table; it’s a piece of art!

Armchairs

Minimalism: Lisbon Armchair

Proving that minimalistic furnishings need not be dull, the Lisbon Armchair is one of comfort and style. Blending mid-century and Scandinavian design elements, it offers an inviting wingback silhouette and chrome swivel legs. The chair’s chic curves are covered in velvet upholstery, decorated with a unique tight weave trellis pattern – simply stunning!

Maximalism: Cover Armchair

Perfect for those with bold ambition, the Cover Armchair is a statement waiting to be made. A contemporary take on a classic wingback, the Cover is defined by its stark lines, two-tone upholstery and Art Deco-inspired embellishments. Offered in two sumptuous shades of forest green and plum, the Cover blends matt nubuck with glossy ribbed leather panels, resulting in a wow-factor finish. Sitting on chic tapered legs capped with golden feet, this accent chair’s stunning details are impossible to resist.
