In the Houston living room shown here, a pair of custom velvet sofas, an extra-large coffee table, floor-to-ceiling drapes and a sizable fiddle leaf fig plant help bring down the scale.
In the dining room of this Illinois home, Jennifer Kranitz of Chicago-based firm PROjECT used silk drapery as the backdrop to a pair of African portraits, allowing the subtle shimmer of the fabric to create a contrast with the chains used to hang the artwork and balance the drama of the Mongolian fur ladder back dining chairs and Oly bubble chandelier.
In this Toronto living room, a couple of elements are at play. A slim fireplace allows a large TV to sit above it without too much neck strain by viewers watching from the sofas or chairs. Also, a dark (possibly marble) surround keeps the TV from creating too much of a black-box effect in the space.
So, with the pads on the legs or on the bases of your furniture you can slide items much easier. You can also attach sliders on pieces of equipment like a fridge, a washing machine and others. Importantly, moving objects with sliders under them does not damage neither the objects nor the floor which often happens using other means to move larger pieces.
