What is organic modern?

What is organic modern?

Organic Natural Design

So, organic modern. The term isn’t totally new, but it’s been cropping up with increasing frequency in the interior design blogosphere, and that’s a trend we expect to continue and pick up for some time to come. The rise of organic modernism is another form of push back against homogenization and consumer culture. The aesthetic eschews synthetic materials and colors. Natural materials and shades of neutral rule the day.

How to stay opulent with less square footage

Bigger is better is an aging maxim. As authenticity, craftsmanship and a sense of community and connectivity become increasingly important to many of us, people are turning to small living not just for economic reasons (though to be sure, that’s part of it) but to facilitate an intentional lifestyle. A couple months ago The New York Times had an article on extreme small living. However, you don’t have to build a mini house to apply the principles of small living. They’re extremely handy for we apartments dwellers too.

“Made in China,” yet elegant and stylish…

Chinoiserie

I’ve recently become fascinated by fanciful Chinese imagery increasingly used by decorators to add charm and exotic flair to Western homes. The style is popularly known as chinoiserie and dates back to an eastward expansion of trade and tourism and overall attraction to Asian things that swept Europeans four centuries ago. Today the exotic Chinese patterns are used to introduce sophistication and mystery to our spaces. Designers often layer their interiors with chinoiserie wallpaper and fabrics to spark them with Oriental romanticism and a touch of exotic style.

Living with Antique and Vintage Rugs

By Nader Bolour

As the DLB Journey continues and the world of interior design evolves, what stays constant is the timeless beauty of old rugs. Throughout the years my vision has changed to a new appreciation of different antique rugs.  My emphasis has always been in the classical and more expensive. Today I am more attracted to color, boldness of design and rugs that would add an extra layer to modern interiors.

It’s incredible how a carpet can enhance a room. Whether you are looking for the elegant decoration of a classic Persian rug or the unique flair that comes from a more European styled rug, it’s important to realize how the things you put on your floor affect your room just as much as the things you put in the room itself.

In a certain regard, each rug is a piece of art as much as it is a way to decorate your rooms. The history and culture behind each rug is apparent as soon as you walk into the room it resides in, and we encourage you to peruse our collection of antique rugs to find the rug that really speaks to you—the rug that will work for your home.

There is a certain beauty that can only really come into a room through the addition of an antique rug. The passion and care of each rug’s weaver is apparent, and no two designs are precisely identical.
