ANN/THE STAR – Whether you are looking for versatility or to create an interesting configuration, modular furniture has become a popular go-to for interior designers. Gone are the days of a one-size-fits-all approach.
Enter modular, in which a room can be framed or a seating arrangement created from sections as opposed to a single unit.
Modular configurations are especially popular in urban areas, where elevator sizes may prohibit some furniture options, but they are also gaining favour for those who simply desire a more customised seating approach.
Thinking of going modular?
Here are some top tips.
– Measure the space you are looking to design, taking into consideration pathways and room flow.
– Incorporate sections that are armless if possible, as this allows for the most amount of flexibility.
– Select modular pieces that have features such as reversible sections or removeable arms that allow for various configurations from the same modular section.
– Purchase modular furniture pieces in solid-coloured fabrics to avoid having to worry about matching a pattern or design.
– Avoid sections that have connectors. It is best to have sections that are fully upholstered on both sides to maximise flexibility.
