Creating Home Hubs
Creating Home Hubs
Lots of new trends for home interiors were started when our lives were thrown into disarray by the pandemic—hubs may be the most useful. Home hubs are purposefully designed areas that offer the separation needed to focus on work or study, but which can also be used for relaxation.
What makes home hubs attractive is that they reclaim separate uses for the home and allow it to fulfil our changing needs. Hubs are best supported by flexible and multipurpose furnishings that can quickly pivot when the purpose of a room changes, and can support the normal open plan home once the crisis is over.
Whether your intent for a hub is play, study, relaxation, or work, a good availability of surfaces will really prove helpful, and a dash of style never hurts either!
The Amerigo Coffee Table is a wide, low table with solid metal construction. An attractive bronze finish and plenty of surface space make this an ideal table for relaxation or even play.
Versatility makes the Haven Small Office Desk a great option. With a dynamic form, spacious top, and small footprint, this desk can easily do double duty as a stylish console around the home when it’s not supporting work or study.
The Rollo End Table is a great choice for home hubs, as its wheeled design makes it easy to rearrange. A very nifty form and design make it useful for relaxing or working, and allow it to roll in close to where you are.
The Uno Ottoman is an interesting piece that combines mobility and convertibility—as footrest, seat, or small coffee table. Though it offers only a small surface compared to a desk or dedicated table, sometimes that’s all we need.
Good shelving storage is a useful component of creating hubs, as it screens off space, helping establish a sense of separation that’s key to hubs. Additional storage, and style, is also never a bad thing even once we won’t need hubs!
The all-glass construction of the Quiller Libreria creates a transparent barrier between areas, which can be filled in by books, boxes, plants and decor elements to create an effective screen.
Screening with openness is also easy with the Arches Shelving Unit. Floating shelves and metal elements create a gorgeous presence, and once filled in, they create a screen.
The Haven Bookshelf offers a little more solidity than the two options above, with a wooden back which truly creates a solidness paired with the openness of shelves which extend just beyond.
A Simple Recipe
The pieces above are a small sample of what can create hubs. Between flexible surfaces and sensible storage, it’s easy to build a screened-off and peaceful hub that supports your needs.
