The dark and muted theme introduced above is the perfect stage to showcase the handsome craftsmanship of the Nelson Bench. Made with ebonized wood legs and available in three lengths, alongside your own selection of finish, this multifunctional table is an asset worth investing in. Any living room should be functional whilst still exuding comfort, and this room design fits the bill perfectly. Seeped in deep hues, but also well balanced with splashes of life from the tall gleaming lamp, cushy, fur rug, broad structure of the bench and sprightly cushions, the sheer drama is forged. The table serves as a handy place to keep magazines, laptops, etc. within easy reach.

2 – Neutral accents paired with a contemporary vibe

The conceptual idea behind this layout features the Nelson Bench as a statement piece that ties the entire room together. You will notice how this space utilizes the method of incorporating the bare minimum to deliver the greatest impact. Pairing up the solid wood slate with a supplementary lounging chair, muted carpeting, free-form glass table, and a simple fruit bowl establishes a one-dimensional setting. Placing it inverse to a wide window allows for a natural glow to light up the entire room.

3A cozy and welcoming living room

Pictured above you can see how easy it is to construct a quaint and inviting living room without overcrowding it. Here it serves as a space-saving platform as it occupies minimal space owing to its efficient and compact dimensions, whilst still standing as a podium for placing miscellaneous objects. The entire area is well defined and beckons you to sit down and relax

4Create a captivatingly bright lounge

Here we can see the perfect marriage between contemporary design elements and traces of eclectic vibes. Following the theory that the best spaces combine different looks to create a style that’s all it’s own, the Nelson Bench balances clean, nude-colored furniture and walls with vibrant pops of color. The juxtaposition of the counter with bright, colorful elements like enchanting sunflowers, a rainbow of cushions and flamboyant art pieces scattered around the bench, gives the space personality and style. The warm copper and ebony tones, mixed with the burnt oranges and teal curtains are very on-trend year-round and they inject a feeling of warmth into the room.

5 – A functional corner

You can use the Nelson Bench to inject some personal elements into your indoor space by layering it with plenty of books, curiosities from your travels, tasteful ornaments, large statement art pieces mounted atop it and things that just make you happy making it the perfect decorative counter. The careful space planning together with the smart combination of different textures and materials is what makes the design so easy to execute and successfully achieves your utilitarian goals.
