I grew up in the 80s, but one of my first introductions to interior design was through the 60s and 70s-era design books my mom would collect at garage sales. With their outlandish modern furniture, strange shapes, and unusual materials, these spaces were not quite like anything I had ever seen, and I was fascinated by the differentness of it all. I was reminded, a little, of those books by this concrete house that I stumbled across on World of Bea. It's full of modern design pieces that are both beautiful and unusual, but has a lightness to it that feels very now.
The house, designed by Belgian architect Marc Corbiau, is filled with furniture that might make you do a double take, like the table-sized wire basket used as a catch-all for magazines, and the chair/lounge combo perched next to it. Large, low coffee tables are a good fit for the openness of the space, while piles of sheepskin rugs and gauzy drapes help to warm up all that concrete.
What do you think? Is this space a little too modern? Or just right?
