|Finish||Dark stained Oak|
This bookcase is a real statement piece for this room. However, it works well in a room like this because of the neutral paint choice and light-coloured sofas. They are not drawing attention away from such a beautiful item of furniture. Instead they provide a welcome contrast. Also being such a contemporary space, it means the room is still very inviting and not too dark and moody. Which is something that can happen if too much dark furniture is used without balancing them with lighter coloured furnishings.
The stained oak is a classic choice and perfectly incorporated into the room. It stops the room being too airy. It is also a very practical piece of furniture. The cupboards allow items to be stored out of sight, stopping the room looking cluttered. This bookcase lighting helps draw your attention to the items on display. It really helps showcase them and further personalise the room.
Even though there are different wood finishes in the room they seem to work cohesively. It is possible to mix up different tones successfully. The bookcase, side table, coffee table, flooring and chair all have different tones, but the bookcase remains the anchor. Then further harmony is achieved with the use of rugs. Not only do rugs help with the aesthetics of the room they absorb sound and add warmth and comfort. So, they are a great way to bring a room together.
