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.
And one of my all-time favorite shelf styling tricks is to display plants on the top layer of shelving, which will draw the eye upward, as well as create height and drama. Below we see shelf-top plants in a tour of my retro-modern home office. Last but not least, we shine the spotlight on the challenging task of styling kids’ room shelving, drawing inspiration from the product photography of The Land of Nod. The Zero Gravity Wall Shelf below illustrates a perfect balance of practicality and design flair, mixing carefully placed toys with books in eye-catching colors.
Let’s get started with some styling inspiration from Urban Outfitters, a brand that offers an interesting array of wall-mounted shelving options. Many of them celebrate the best of geo style. Below we see a trio of shelving solutions, including the Bryn Mountain Display Shelf, pictured at the top right of the photo. Note how each of these shelves holds “like items,“ such as rocks, jewelry and other natural wonders. The styling of this Geo Triangle Shelf proves there’s power in empty space. You may be tempted to fill every square inch of your decorative shelving, but remember that sometimes less is more.
