Designed by Phillipe Starck, the minimalistic Sir Gio Dining Table is both versatile and functional. The table’s specially moulded base base is available in two finishes (transparent and smoked glass),
To create pleasing visual tension, paint walls, trim and wooden furniture in a variety of whites. Using all warm whites will keep the room from looking cold and sterile; don’t use all cool whites. You can also use a variety of textures, including ultra–pale colors, which can be considered part of the white family. To complete the room, finish the floor in a glossy white paint. To complete the look, accent with a mirror, pictures in silver frames, or a ceramic or glass–based lamp with a pleated shade.
White with color and pattern
Adding touches of cobalt blue to an all–white room gives it a fresh, Scandinavian look; just remember that using more than a few accents can turn a “white” room into a “blue and white room”, a different style altogether. We also like cool colors, like aqua blue and grass green, to keep the white looking fresh. Paint walls a pure white and introduce warmth with white accessories and a pale, natural wood floor.
White with naturals
Pair whites with warm natural materials, like wood and raffia; to create a clean–lined, modern aesthetic, texture is the key to the look.
Walls can be painted either a pure white or a warm white that’s not too creamy and finish the floors in a sophisticated dark stain to ground the space. Introduce wood pieces with chocolate–brown or dark walnut stains. Finish the look with contemporary pieces: a dark–wood lamp with a natural linen lampshade; a sleek wooden vase filled with interesting branches of an all–white bouquet or a modern bowl.
