Sideboard furniture decoration with artistic composition

Neither meals nor decor would be the same without the sideboard . This inheritance from the end of the 18th century, which helps to enrich the interiors, is a solid basis for the composition of more stylized environments, both as a table and simple structure and as a buffet with internal space for storage. The narrow and elongated surface of this piece of furniture , normally placed on a wall or behind the sofa, is an area that encourages you to be creative and authorial to make it even more inviting and with a visual impact.

This functional space takes on a decorative character when filled with artistic compositions, whether in its own structure or on the wall it accommodates. The choice of elements is facilitated by resorting to scenographic techniques that support the principles of interior design , helping to enhance the decoration with mastery. Unity , emphasis , harmony and rhythm were some of the concepts we chose to guide you to decorate your sideboard with balance and personal style.

Unit: furniture and art in synergy with the raw material

The wood of the African masks and the sideboard balance the space, giving continuity.

The unity can be felt from the perception that everything flows naturally in the decorative arrangement. This occurs because there is a link between the elements that promotes the idea of ​​continuity, whether through colors, shapes, textures or as presented here based on the material. The common language shared by the carved wood and the natural color chart of the raw material of the African masks and the rustic sideboard are integrated in a unified and pleasant way in this composition.

The texture of natural wood is the link between decorative objects and promotes unity in interiors.

The different shades of natural wood and their respective curved lines create textures that establish a connection between the ethnic sculptures and the sideboard. The warm essence of the pieces also comes together with the vibrant colors of the Indian lamp , which causes a break in the natural pattern reinforced by the potted plant with natural fiber. This small visual break gives more "interest" to the set, without losing its unified and unique character.

Emphasis: Explore vertical spaces with wall arts

Wall decor under the sideboard creates a center of visual interest.

In the absence of a focal point in the architecture of the environment, the decorative object assumes its essence to emphasize a specific space. As the support of the wall in the sideboard's composition is recurrent, it becomes a perfect blank frame to highlight canvases , panels , mandalas or mirrors and create a center of interest. It doesn't have to be grand in size and take up the entire length of the furniture, as just a differentiated detail such as the geometric shape is enough to play the role of protagonist.

The frame is highlighted by the lampshade's diffuse lighting emphasizing the sideboard wall.

Emphasis is used to expand the perception of the surroundings and it is what we are drawn to when we enter an interior. It is this quick identification that we feel with the rustic frame of this round mirror illuminated by the warm diffused light of the Balinese table lamp . It serves as an anchor for the other decorative elements, which do not compete with each other, and enhances the utilitarian character of the decorative mirror with a beautiful and meaningful air of a work of art. And indeed, it is one!

Harmony: artistic combination according to lighting

The smoothness of the organic shapes and lighting visually harmonizes the sideboard.

Harmony links the entire interior design and brings the feeling that everything fits together visually. The artistic combination that manages to deliver the same essence in color palette, theme, aesthetic or lighting design is likely to appear more delicate and inviting. As well as the organic shapes of the floral lamp and the softness in the marble art that establish the same visual language, creating a harmonious and clean sideboard decoration as the Zen structure.

The extension of glazed colors and textures from lighting to decorative art provides harmony.

When all the arts are related, they convey the feeling that the space is integrated. This is also the case with the color selection of the decorative composition. The colorful lighting with vitrified textures of the glass , beads and mother-of-pearl that make up the Turkish mosaic lamps and the lotus flower candle holder is the guide of this decoration. The organic shapes of the flowers that design the domes and the support structure for the candle come into synergy with the curved lines of the mirror , the abstract sculpture and the Buddha , making this space of contemplation leave you truly at ease - exactly what is expected of a harmonious interior.

Rhythm: use repetition in interior design

The repetition of shapes makes the perception of space more pleasant.

It is impossible not to think of music when this principle comes into play. Visually, it has a similar concept of unifying the entire environment using the recurrence of elements as repetition , progression , transition and contrast (through shape, color, size, texture, etc.) to convey the sensation of movement and create a consistent and beautiful visual experience. If, on the one hand, the repetition of candle holders with the same round shape brings an intentionally balanced narrative to the whole, on the other hand, the progression of the floral mandala , with the gradation of the dimension starting from the center of the circle, takes the concept of continuity from rhythm to decoration.

The rhythm promoted by two identical elements shows the power of intentional narratives.

When one element naturally flows into the other, the rhythm is maintained based on the concept of transition . Both in this wooden mandala and in the candle holder and lantern, a curved shape flows into another, adding the visual unity of the furniture's decoration to the functionality of the pieces. The repetition of identicalmonginhos sculptures also contributes to the idea of ​​movement, in addition to the white marble structure creating contrast by maintaining opposition with the dark wood of the carved mandala .

The decoration of the sideboard takes on a new meaning when it incorporates decorative objects that encourage perception and invite us to take a closer look at all the details that compose it.
