5 Easy Tips For Decorating Your Designer Coffee Table

After choosing your living room furniture, how you accessorize the room becomes the next important step in completing your room design. With so many options for styling your coffee table, it is easy for you to end up with an unbalanced look. In many cases, a coffee table becomes the center of your living room. If you're not careful, it can become a landing zone for unwanted household items. However, if accessorized in a smart way, your coffee table can share your personal style and create a complete look for your space. There are many ways in which you could style your coffee table, and it can be overwhelming to choose. Our designers outline 5 easy ways to style your coffee table to ensure that you have the best living room design in the neighborhood. 1. Stack Your Books One of the easiest ways to style your coffee table is by stacking books. Simply stack your favorite books with the largest on the bottom and smallest on the top - lining up spines just like a librarian. On a large table, you can use these stacks to separate sizable accessories like vases or glass objects. Stacks of coffee table books can also be used as pedestals for other accessories such as designer boxes or bowls. Books can even be used to add a pop of color in muted rooms. It is hard to go wrong when styling your table with chic coffee table books!    2. Style With Designer Vases, Bottles, and Bowls Vases will give your coffee table a more dynamic look by adding levels to your decor. It will create heights where other accessories might create a flatter appearance. Designer vases can often have engaging stories such as the Italian-made KOSE collection, which is entirely manufactured by hand, according to ancient techniques.    3. Add Some Greenery Your coffee table can instantly be more inviting when you add any type of greenery or floral arrangements. Many interior designers use their stacked books as a pedestal for a small potted plant or vase of flowers. Research has shown that indoor plants improve concentration and productivity, reduce stress levels and offer other positive benefits - making this a great contender for your coffee table decor.   4. Add A Tray Trays come in a plethora of designs and can easily help make items work together on your coffee table. A tray can be the perfect combination of practical and beautiful. It can showcase many items on a table in one elegant way. Many trays are even useful for serving breakfast in bed, presenting cocktails on the patio, or just left alone with chic home accessories.   5. Showcase Unique Objects and Art The thing about adorning your coffee table is that it is completely up to you what you use. Coffee tables are typically in the center of living room seating, and therefore the more unique objects you display, the more interesting conversation you might ignite. If you keep items presented in a neat way, you are free to be creative.

13 Chic Luxury Area Rugs That Will Upgrade Any Space

Designing the perfect space means thinking about everything from the size of the furniture to color of your home accessories. One of the most important accessories that can truly make or break a space is an area rug. For some, rugs might serve as a means of protecting a hardwood floor cushioning a surface. For others, including interior designers, area rugs are a staple for almost any room and can be the glue that brings the whole look together. Some interior designers even argue that you should consider designing your room around a rug. Luxury area rugs can last lifetimes. In many cases, luxury handmade rugs have several elements that go into what makes them so special. Materials, size, production time, and other critical factors set quality rugs apart from inexpensive mass-produced options. For example, a hand-knotted 9'x12' rug is composed of up to 1.5 million individually hand-tied knots that takes crafters about 1500 hours to make from start to finish. Whether you are browsing for just the right rug to finish off a room's look or beginning a design project with a rug, here are 15 of our favorite luxury designer area rugs for any room.   1. Tres Vegetal Hand Loomed Rug by Nanimarquina This rug, designed by Elisa Padrón & Nani Marquina, is designed in a variety of colors and styles. It showcases a rustic style with the use of natural-looking hemp. Hand-spun fiber is biodegradable, lightweight, and resistant to wear and tear. This rug is a flat weave created in India that offers a uniqueness through the irregularities generated by the crossing of the fibers and their different thicknesses, but also in the shades of beige, ivory, or off-white fibers.   2. Persian Color Rug by Nanimarquina   This luxurious rug demonstrates the epitome of tradition and craftsmanship. It is flexible, soft, and bright that is simple and plain. The Persian Colors rugs are knitted with Persian knot and hand spun Afghan wool through a laborious manual process that enriches the fabric providing a texture of extreme softness. The collection is hand spun, giving irregular properties that showcase ancestral techniques.  3. Seta II Rug by GT Design The Seta II Rug shares a unique tactile and light experience. Created with silk yarn and pure wool, this hand-woven rug is designed in warm earth tones. This sophisticated design is perfect to bring together all the design elements of your room.   4. Textures Tweed Rug by GT Design This rug is part of a collection of rugs created with wool woven on a mechanical loom. The rugs are flexible and stain resistant. This design features broad striped woolen weaves, thanks to the addition of an interlaced yarn in silky polyester. The rug has wool and polyester yarns entwined softly to produce an elegant textured weave.    5. Shadows Rug by Golran This rug, designed by Isabella Sodi, is a beautiful medley of dark and light tones. The design is available in a variety of color options, including beige, black, brown, gold, white, sweet pink, and lapis.   6. In-Touch Rug by GT Design This rug is incredibly soft and produced in Tencel, which is one of the most eco-friendly fibers on the market. Versatile and chic, this rug is perfect for all types of contemporary styles.   7. Luna Rug by Nanimarquina Asking for the moon is no longer impossible. This dreamy rug is a re-edition of Oscar Tusquets’ La Luna rugs from the ’80s. This rug features warmer tones in brown and beige. The Luna rug is perfect for hallways or the foot of a bed.    8. Black on White Rug, Estambul by Nanimarquina This unique rug adds a type of artwork to the floor - drawing your eyes to it immediately. The original sketch for this rug was a watercolor painted by Mariscal in 1987. Using this concept as a starting point, the design is updated using unique patterns reminiscent of comics.   9. Blur Rug by Nanimarquina   This rug seems simple from afar, but up close it features shapes and textures that have a life of their own. This "blurred" effect that is seen from a distance is achieved by inverting the sense in which the kilims are traditionally woven - a laborious process. This change in weaving causes the lines to be blurred, mixing two colors unevenly, creating an aged rug, reminiscent of the past.   10. Coconutrug, Terra Fresca - Aria Aperta Rug by GT Design  This rug is created using top quality coconut fiber that is perfect to protect the floor, in areas subjected to heavy footfall, in homes with pets, holiday homes, at the seaside, or in the mountains. In Aria Aperta, the coconut fiber is embellished with a multicolored technical yarn, and in Terra Fresca by a luminous fiber in neutral hues.   11. Fluid Rug by GT Design This rug is very versatile and is suitable for many environments, including residential, commercial, and hospitality. The high-performance yarns are woven using a handmade technique that allows to customize the textures with inlay designs, and bouclé and cut pile finishes resulting in one-of-kind pieces. This collection was selected to be included in exclusive projects by top international architectural firms such as Zada Hadid and Gensler.    12. Hand Knotted, Cobble Rug by Gan Rugs This contemporary cobblestone-inspired rug combines grey and black in an interesting pattern. Designed with hand-knitted wool, it will not only add texture to your room, but provide a soft oasis for your feet.     13. Kama Ambient Rug by GT Design Designed by Deanna Comellini, this rug captures light and allows it to bounce and reflect through the weave. Soft to touch, visually exciting esthetics, the hand-spun fibers are luxurious and refined with a touch of bold.
Contemporary Hamptons Style Home

7 Ways to Create Hamptons Style in Your Home

The Hamptons are known for lavish summer lifestyles that include beautiful beaches, stunning homes, exclusive cocktail parties, and sleek style. It makes sense that people want to incorporate this feeling into their home design. Hamptons home style can be described as light, bright, airy, and sophisticated. Interior design in the Hamptons can often come with a sense of effortless calm. For a house to meet these criteria, you must keep in mind the proper color scheme, lighting, flooring, and furnishings. Below are 7 design elements that you can incorporate into your home to achieve beautiful Hamptons style.   1. Natural Textures and Linens in Whites and Neutral Tones Use natural materials for curtains, rugs, and textiles to warm up plain white walls. Don't be afraid to layer rugs and use materials like jute to bring natural textures to your home. Luxury throw blankets in whites or other light colored neutrals also easily help make your space feel more like home and give any piece of furniture that Hamptons style. 2. Oversized Furniture The Hamptons is all about entertaining, and what makes a gathering more enjoyable than comfortable oversized furniture. When shopping for furniture for your home, choose pieces that are not only impressive and large, but also that are comfortable and perfect for hosting guests. 3. Bright Accent Lighting Whether your home has an abundance of natural light or not, using bright and elegant accent lighting is a great way to achieve Hampton's style. Accent lighting can dress up a space and create the illusion of an abundance of light. Think table lamps, sconces, and more. For example, pendant lighting is a staple in many Hamptons style kitchens. 4. Large Windows At this point, it is very clear that the key to creating Hamptons style in your home is to keep rooms feeling bright and airy. It makes sense that a staple in many beautiful Hamptons home designs are large spanning windows. If you do use curtains, remember that natural materials and neutral solid colors are perfect for this look. 5. Marble Interior Accents This east coast style is not only understated, but it should be luxurious. From bathroom accessories to your dining room tabletop, light colored marble will give your space a crisp look. 6. An Elegant Exterior Your home's curb appeal should be equally as important as your interiors. Follow the neutral tones on the outside of your home and consider wood paneling for an authentic Hamptons style. 7. Chic Outdoor Furniture Create a seamless transition from the interior to the backyard with consistent color choices and chic outdoor furniture. Use outdoor tables, lounges, and accessories to create the same feeling outside.

A Message From Jan & George: Farewell To Twenty-Twenty

A Message From Jan & George: Farewell To Twenty-Twenty

As this year comes to an end, we like to take a few moments of your time. 2020 challenged us on many levels. We all faced concerns and uncertainties that to the day are a fact of our daily lives. We said goodbye to loved ones way too early and too many times.  But, like with all matters in life, there was balance. 2020 showed us to be grateful.  First, our team members, the people that work for us and with us, are outstanding. One of our staff members put it in perfect words, “we are here for each other, both in the office and outside the office.”  We always knew that and felt that, but 2020 made us realize this in a much deeper and profound way. We love our staff, admire them, we are in awe of their honesty and dedication, and the passion they have for what we do. Without their hard work, laughter, tears, and love, none of what we do at JANGEORGe would have been possible. Second, we feel blessed with the clients we work for, which of many, have turned into long-lasting friendships. The support we have felt from our loyal customers is just one of the best emotions to feel. It sparked creativity in a way that we have never seen before. Through our online platform, we got to connect with new clients worldwide, met with Interior Design enthusiasts from around the globe, and started new conversations that came from the heart.  There are no words or ways to express how blessed we feel. This last year has been magical. It has shown us what life means, what it means to listen to our instincts, to be there for each other, our teams, and our clients, to let the being be! We want to wish you a fantastic rest of your holiday season and a spectacular new year, and above all, happiness and health.  Jan and George Rutgers

Get to know Jan des Bouvire: The grandmaster of the White Interior (1942-2020)

"Grandmaster Of The White Interior." Dutch celebrity designer Jan des Bouvrie (78), known for creating the iconic Cube Sofa and introducing white minimalist interiors to the Netherlands, has passed away after a multi-year battle with prostate cancer. Mr. des Bouvrie's career spanned over 50 years, from the initial product designer to complete residential and commercial design projects. Jan des Bouvrie was born in the city of Naarden, just east of Amsterdam, in 1942. His family ran a furniture business, and he decided to attend the Gerrit Rietveld Academie for art and design in Amsterdam to follow in their footsteps. After a brief stint working for his parents' business, he ventured into designing furniture himself. He moved his design studio to his home town of Naarden in 1993, a fortified city famous for its unique layout resembling a giant snowflake. Together with his spouse and fellow Interior Designer Monique des Bouvrie, he set up Het Arsenaal, located in the center of The Netherlands, called Het Gooi. An early archetype of a studio, a restaurant, and a lifestyle showroom, all within a beautiful former 17th-century military building. With this by Jan and Monique created source for all the senses, they were true pioneering. It simply was never done or conceived before. Their design studio and showroom quickly became THE hotspot for design. "I Have Always Sought The Light." Before the arrival of Jan des Bouvrie in the Dutch Design scene, interiors were mostly dark and more on the moody side. His most well-known design, the Kubusbank or Cube Sofa, created for Gelderland in 1969, is still in production and present today. Jan's quest for light and lightness, whether that would be with the use of the color white in his product designs or the open, airy, and sparsely designed contemporary interiors, would away be the main focus of his design aesthetic. In 2009, Jan was named a Knight of the Order of the Netherlands Lion, the country's oldest and highest civilian order of chivalry. After his passing, many within the International Interior Design scene paid tribute to Jan des Bouvrie.  Fellow Dutch designer Piet Boon was spot on with his remark, "It is amazing to realize, that when the Dutch think of the color white, they think of Jan de Bouvrie." "Jan des Bouvrie, colorful as he was, made the world light and white," reads a statement from Studio Jan des Bouvrie.    Studio Jan des Bouvrie will continue to be operated by his wife, Monique.
