Metropolis is a minimalist collection of bathroom furniture produced by Italian bathroom furniture manufacturer Lasa Idea. Founded in the 1970’s Lasa Idea originally specialised in the creation of mirrors and wooden bathroom accessories, however the company later expanded its offering by branching into the creation of bathroom furniture.
The modular Metroplis collection features a variety units, which are available in 40 standard matt or gloss lacquered colours as well as all the RAL lacquer shades. There is also a choice of 20 different wood finishes.
The range features a number of container elements including deep drawers and baskets, which help to optimize and organize the storage space.
The range itself is inspired by modern architecture and urban landscapes. The minimalist, monochromatic bathroom is comprised of hard lines and sharp angles which are then softened by the ergonomic lines of the sanitaryware.
What do you think? Is this a heavenly combination of minimalism and monochromatic delight? Or do you think it is too cold and clinical? We’d love your feedback so let us know.
We now turn to top design bloggers such as Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth, who has decorated her kitchen shelving with an array of pastel dishware. Don’t be afraid to mix function and style when it comes to your decorative shelves. Put useful items on display, but arrange them artfully. If the shelving is purely decorative, choose pieces carefully. Be selective, as this gives your shelves a curated, artful look, as shown by this DIY hoop shelf from A Beautiful Mess.
Speaking of “less is more” design, if your shelf offers little display space, consider opting for one or two standout items to showcase rather than a slew of small finds. In the next image, we see the Magical Thinking Peaks Shelf, crafted from glass and aluminum. Then again, there’s something charming about a curiously cluttered look, especially if items are thoughtfully curated. The Magical Thinking Pyramid Shelf below holds treasures and curiosities. When your shelves make a sculptural statement, don’t overwhelm and block them with clutter. After all, when the design is as fabulous as the Bamboo Step Wall Shelf in the next featured image, you certainly don’t want to cover up the bold form of your shelving.
