Sitting on your human’s lap, on a beautiful Ritchie Sofa and just enjoying being there…this is the life. This cute little Cockapoo may not excel at showing off emotions but deep down we just know she really loves those rainbow buttons. The piranha fish on the pillow…that’s a different story. You just know you’ve chosen the right armchair when you see your cat deep asleep and so comfortable and peaceful you couldn’t possibly disturb it. I guess you could sit on the floor for now. Who cares as long as your cat is happy on the new Ritchie Armchair with candy pink upholstery and rainbow buttons, right?
Fluid draping and the fine details of fabrics rendered in marble — these are the hallmarks of classic 16th and 17th century Italian sculptors like Bernini and Michelangelo. Fast forward to 2017 and California designer Sean Knibb is putting a modern spin on the same concept with his Casa Canova collection. Knibb, a well-known landscape designer who has also made his mark with interior designs that “elevate” everyday items, became taken with 18th century sculptor Antonio Canova. Canova was a master of neoclassicism and is often credited with reviving the art of sculpture, which had diminished over time. His dynamic treatment of fabrics and draping was stunning.
In case you have some extra wallpaper or if you simply like the look, an interesting idea is to cover the top of the coffee table with wallpaper and maybe even coordinate with your ceiling or accent wall. It’s a simple and inexpensive upgrade and a great way to rejuvenate an old table with water stains on it. But enough with the coffee tables. Let’s also take a look at some projects involving the Lack side table. A very interesting idea is to cover the top of the table with pennies. For the project you need wood moulding, black paint, a picture frame mount, reinforced glass and around 621 pennies. It’s not a fast project but if you have time and patience, go for it.
Ikea Lack coffee tables are extremely versatile and they can even change function if you desire such a project. For example, you can turn such a table into a comfortable tufted ottoman. You might have to cut the legs a bit to make them shorter. Then use foam and fabric to make the cozy seat cushion and attach it to the table. There’s more than one way to give this coffee table a new look. So how about adding some mid-century charm to the mix? For this project you only need to use the top of the Lack table. You also need to find some tapered legs to use with it. So basically install the legs and make sure they’re symmetrical and stable.
