We’ve seen our share of buffets and sideboards as well as sideboard cabinets and most of them are pretty mainstream with designs that serve the functions they’re meant to but other than that don’t exactly impress. Every once in a while, however, we come across something outstand, something exquisite like a sideboard that stands out thanks to its unusual shape or a cabinet that‘s eye-catching in a totally unexpected way.
When decorating a bachelor pad always pay attention to the colors and shapes that are included in the design. You can never go wrong with straight lines and simple forms but don‘t let these rule the decor. Play with contrasts and also add some curves and patterns to the space. Aim for a contemporary style that‘s semi-minimalist.
A space needs to include heavy and sturdy decor items if you want it to look masculine. Delicate forms, curves, sleek lines and lightweight furnishings are the opposite of that. Look for materials such as solid wood and metal and make sure at least some of your furniture pieces have a solid and strong impact on the overall decor and ambiance of the space. Obviously, don’t exaggerate and also remember to balance out that heaviness with some glass accents, cozy fabrics and light colors.
We‘re all familiar with rattan, although sometimes we think it‘s one and the same as wicker. But the material we now associate with cozy furniture is actually full of surprises. The term rattan, for instance, defines more than 600 species of climbing palms and a lot of them are in fact more similar to lianas than to actual wood. Rattan has slender stems and doesn‘t grow like a tree but more like a vine, also being a bit similar to bamboo from certain points of view.
