This totally unique patio table by Extremis puts an innovative twist on tradition in interior design. The Hopper table by designer Dirk Wynants was inspired by farmers, hoppers, long days in the fields and the communal celebrations that followed the harvest, at long rows of tables much like this. This modern variation features an industrial galvanized or powder-coated steel frame and exposed bolts, with a natural Iroko wood tabletop and benches. And we appreciate the version with the backrest rail! Also available with an integrated sunshade, this table is a great choice in open patio spaces where shade is scarce.

Designers Mark Jehs and Jurgen Laub put their heads together and came up with this cool, smart sofa design – the Jalis soft sofas by COR. “Jalis,” taken from Arabic, translates to “relaxed communication,” and a more fitting name there could not be. These Oriental style sofas were made for any interior and any situation, from casual lounging to formal entertaining. Designed to encourage social interaction, this soft sofa can be combined for a variety of layouts suited to any-sized space. The fine fabric provides support and style, and when the light hits it in a certain way you’ll appreciate a pattern of three-dimensional fine embroidery. The deep seats, cushy backrests and copious cushions deliver comfort and a contemporary signature interior style that transforms any room into a social hotspot.

Depending on what mood you want to achieve, select one of the floral arrangements:
Inspiration and motivation – Combine flowers of red, orange and fuchsia color. Red flower, which should dominate the arrangements, to motivate, give courage and strength. Orange and fuchsia boost enthusiasm. It is best to put a bouquet in a silver metal vase and place it in the mirror because the mirror reinforces the positive energy of flowers. Bouquet hold in the study.

When it comes to interior accessories, animal print designs sit equally well in country homes and modern flats.
