This luxurious Finnish apartment, located by the bay, was imagined by the designers at DE&DE Studio. Rich wooden texture makes up much of the decor, with complex slatted wall installations and extruded pattern a recurring theme throughout. The wood panelling is not only decor but doubles up as an effective zoning technique. Open slats subtly separate different areas of use without fully blocking the line of sight through the layout. The effect achieves a free-flowing energy and a comfortable spacious feel. The hard linear look of the wall and ceiling designs are counteracted by large round light fittings and looped lamps. Indoor plant foliage further feathers the edges.
A home office area is sectioned off from the lounge by a partially dividing slatted wall. The open slats allows conversation to take place between areas if desired, but successfully obscures the work station from the relaxation spot.
The slatted wall also helps form a cosy corner in which to nestle the modern sofas. Modular seating sections can be moved around to suit. A contemporary fireplace warms the open plan living room with a line of open flame.
The tv wall decor carries on up and over the living room ceiling, to join with the slatted wall on the opposite side of the room. Track lighting is recessed into the ceiling slats to accentuate the design.
A grey swivel chair faces a wooden upstand behind the desk. Gold artwork creates a shimmer across the office wall.
