Take a second to think of all the mirror images you've seen in interior design. More than likely. the images you're thinking of are stately living rooms that feature double couches or a long dining table with two rows of identical chairs. This rigid duplication of symmetrical design has a tendency to present as more formal and even a little stuffy.
It can be big or small: Asymmetry doesn't always have to make a huge statement. Sometimes even piv0ting a chair at an angle is enough.Use odd numbers: Arranging groupings in odd numbers is a great way to utilize asymmetrical design.Remember coordinating elements: When you're going asymmetrical. it's crucial to include a few common threads to help pull everything together.
There's actually a psychological basis for why this occurs. It has to do with the way our brains process information. They aim to pick up on as many patterns and repetitions as possible. so the mirroring effect of symmetrical design makes those rooms very easy to figure out. In asymmetrical spaces. the patterns are less immediately obvious. so it takes our brains a bit longer to process them and ultimately makes them more interesting.
It almost goes without saying that concrete and industrial design go hand in hand. You don't have to work hard to conjure images of former industrial warehouses turned sun-drenched lofts or reclaimed bits of machinery that have been transformed into chic accent pieces.If you're going to go this route. we suggest going big to really drive home your design inspiration.
