The Linear Look


I came across this photo of fashion designer Monique Lhuillier’s dining room. When entering the room, you’ll see a confident, contemporary look with an emphasis on smooth linear lines. There are several different heights of objects, one thing leading to another- from side chairs to the dining table, then to console table and art, and lastly the moulding. All contribute to a continuous flow of the eye.

Some of the hallmarks of classic contemporary design are shown through the incorporation of geometric shapes, mirrors, Lucite (see the dining table’s legs), recessed lighting, and an overall emphasis on one color in different shades and textures.
Here are some more photos of her peaceful house. Enjoy!
