In an Entry
Displaying artwork that comes in pairs can bring double the impact as well as a uniform look to your foyer. Be they geometric paintings, vintage-style prints, or a colorful photograph in diptych form, two pieces of art lined up above a console cabinet is an eye-catching alternative to a large mirror or one oversize artwork.
In a Living Room
Open up a seating area by placing a pair of end tables in the center. When pushed together, the pieces resemble one large coffee table; when separated, they’re movable stands that can hold books and drinks beside a sofa. For extra flourish, you can top the sofa with paired pillows.
In a Bedroom
Two matching chairs at the end of a bed can be just as stylish and functional as a long bench. They make pretty perches for books and clothing, like robes and pj’s, and of course they’re perfect reading chairs that you can easily pull up next to a window.
In Any Space
X-base stools are an excellent choice for extra seating; they’re not only elegant but also easy to move around. And they’re just as gorgeous stowed away underneath a console. But also consider using them as seats for the console itself, which can double as a desk or an impromptu bar/cocktail area for two.
