Enjoy the pics and post

A Mixed Modern Space

Last week we talked about mixing modern, and this beautiful space does just that. The exposed wood ceiling and the unique wall designs create the perfect canvas for an influx of modern furniture.
The modern living room has a bright white tufted sofa that is paired with a tulip side table and white lounge chair and it leads to a modern dining table surrounded by modern classic chairs. The kitchen has the same bones that are accentuated by modern cabinets, appliances and furniture.
What do you think of this modern space? Is this a place you can see yourself living in?

The Wave Chair In Action

Sometimes when you see an item in a different setting than on a website, you see the true beauty of the product. This is exemplified with the Wave Chair, and is especially helpful for those that may be skeptical about acrylic furniture. Because seeing the Wave Chair in this setting helps you envision how gorgeous it will look in your modern home!
Made of high-quality acrylic, the Wave Chair is a modern lounge chair that adds high style and drama to a modern living room. Use the chair as an accent piece to a contemporary sofa and coffee table and the Wave Chair will undoubtedly be the star of the show. Plus, the materials of the Wave Chair are completely recyclable and environmentally conscious!
What do you think of the Wave Chair?

See It In Action: The Soho Stool

On Monday, we blogged about mixing modern with other styles, such as traditional and rustic, and there were some modern classic stools that were used as an example. To wrap the week up over here at the Inmod blog, we’ve got those chairs in stool form – and we’ve got them in action in a stylish modern-transitional kitchen.
The modern stool is the Soho Stool, which is a highly accurate reproduction of the Navy Emeco Stool. Made of aluminum with a brushed finish, these modern classic stools are stylish and timeless. They work well in any modern setting, including this kitchen above.
What do you think of these stools?

Xert Yourself

You won’t overexert yourself by creating the perfect modern dining room with the Xert Buffet Console and the Xert Narrow Shelf.
These sleek storage pieces have durable stainless steel frames, available in the finish of your choice. The shelves are made of frosted glass for a chic, dramatic look. What’s great about the Xert Series is that they add optimum style while providing storage and display options.
In addition to the two items shown here, there are so many other items in the Xert Series, made by Zuo. There is a bart cart, a chair, an entertainment center – so many pieces that you could essentially Xert your whole house out, if you love the styles that much!!
Which Xert piece is your favorite?

Modern spaces and some modern pieces,
