Eye Catching Statement Pieces - A Guest Post



Thanks Mari for hanging out with us today!


Hi, it's Mari, a writer from Arcadian Lighting, a site that specializes in really quality lighting and offers lots of home d├ęcor ideas. I'm excited to be visiting as a guest blogger here at Studio Surface today. The topic at hand for this post is eye-catching pieces that can be used to make a style statement from the front door to the kitchen island. Statement pieces include furniture of course, but they can also be lighting fixtures, rugs and even fresh flowers. Here are eight rooms with statement pieces we love—some traditional choices and a few unexpected ideas to consider. Please enjoy!
This stately space is filled with pieces that could on their own make a design statement, but the standout piece here is the massive Foucault's Orb Crystal Chandelier from Restoration Hardware.
Wide stripes in chocolate and cream turn sleek banquette seating into a truly eye-catching statement piece. I love this beautiful color combination.
Flanked by coppery pendant lights, this stylish bed makes a design statement in a contemporary space. I love the organic flowing curve of wood in the platform of the bed.
The lovely movement of color creates a work of art on this bathroom wall—an organic statement piece in natural stone.
La Cornue range as statement piece might be unexpected but make a design statement it does. The metals from which this stove is crafted will only be enhanced with use and age.
Velvet sofas often become statement pieces in rooms they occupy. This deeply tufted charcoal gray sofa is at once glamorous, sumptuous and inviting.
The lovely Swirl by Paul Smith illustrates how a contemporary area rug can instantly become a statement piece. It's simple and easy—choose the rug, get it home (that may be the hardest part) and roll it out—immediate design gratification. I love the creative hanging light fixture.
Need a temporary eye-catching statement piece to welcome guests in the foyer? Consider a massive display of fresh flowers. This informal arrangement has a charming organic feel. Wouldn't it also make a wonderful statement on the work island in a large kitchen? Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 Did you enjoy our post?
