Take a breather in the “Comfort Zone” Inspirations 2017 Maison & Objet Paris

How would you create physical calm in your home?  So that when you stepped into your space regardless of its size and structure, the constant demands and uncertainty of the world were washed away.

This inspired “Comfort Zone” from Maison & Objet  recently.

They suggest curves instead of straight lines, chairs made with tactile fluffy toys and tranquil colours to ease tension.

The low energy light bulb serves two functions. It emits a warm ambient glow, and at the same time provides a downward spotlight. The warm soft glow compliments the space, and the LED’s ensure that tasks such as reading, or writing are sufficiently lit.
