Intriguing Objet D’Art: Design pieces for apartment living
The latest collection by leading Australian furniture and design brand Coco Republic strikes the perfect balance between classic and progressive design—providing the ideal inspiration for purchasers of our new Skyhome Series to bring their dream home to life.
The exclusive penthouses and premium apartments within our award-winning Melbourne Square precinct each come with a generous Skyhome Series + Coco Republic package, which includes bespoke interior design services and furnishings from the Coco Republic Intriguing Objet d'Art collection.
Coco Republic Commercial Manager and interior designer, Stephanie Sanders, says the new collection focuses on key interior design themes.
“We believe that great interior design is defined by elements and principles that are subtle, yet powerful when used together. Colour and texture define a home’s impact and feeling, while light and space are explored within the new ambient lighting in this collection,” says Stephanie.
Stephanie says design for apartment living needs to consider both room flow and where to display key pieces.
“Occasional chairs and side tables are these types of pieces, which can be incorporated into your space to make a positive visual impact,” she says.
“The Soho Side Table is a unique and progressive piece, with intersecting volumes of marble and burnished brass top. It is ideal as an accent, side table, or as a sculptural decorative piece.
“With a unique curvaceous form, the Zurich Occasional Chair blurs the line between art and furniture and features fully-customised upholstery of luxe fabrics to suit varied interior schemes.”
Lighting is a key consideration for apartment living, and Stephanie says the right ambient lighting has the power to change the mood, atmosphere, and perception of space.
“Lighting can be considered a form of art in its own way when used to evoke visual impact or effect. From pendants to floor lamps, table lamps, and wall sconces, the Intriguing Objet d'Art collection features lights designed for each room and occasion—enabling you to create your desired mood,” says Stephanie.
“One of our favourites from the new collection is the Element Alabaster Floor Lamp. Its refined and restrained style works beautifully in many applications while also being a practical addition.”
