I would like to review a post by Freshome, you can see it here.
Begin to get bored with ‘usual’ sofa no matter how comfortable and expensive it is? Bringing the motto of “cushions side by side, stories one after another”, Jehs-Laub proposes a brand new innovative product named Jalis, meaning ‘hospitality and relaxed communication’. Unlike sofas in general which stand on floor or carpet, this downy sofa—along with its fluffy giant pillows and some cushions put on it—lies upon pedestals. The design of Jalis seems to be referring to the interior design of Japanese traditional house in which people rarely have sofa and sit on the cushions instead. This tradition might have made Japanese well-known for their hospitality. Sitting together and talk to each other in such a relaxing way will potentially make a better communication, for the position is more relaxed and able to bridge the gap, too.
Jails could be a fine preference of furniture that can be placed on living room, family room, private library, even inside the bedroom. Just pick one color that we like the most, or any colors that can go along with other furniture which have been previously exist. Nevertheless, I personally think that the table should not have to be that short. If we ever seen table which the Japanese usually use, it shapes like a ‘normal’ table but much shorter legs. The presence of these legs will create a space between the floor and the table surface; a space in which we are able to relax our feet while sitting on the fluffy sofa.
Fitting a furry carpet under the table like what is represented by the first picture could be the best option for those living in a cool, humid area. The presence of furry carpet will bring a sense of warmth and comfort. Putting more cushions is also an excellent idea, for the sofa will be more comfortable if there are some additional cushions added. However, cushions having same color with the sofa somehow appear monotonous. The cushion will look more adorable and eye-catching if its pillowcase’s color is brighter than the sofa’s. For instance, if the sofa is red, the cushions could be given pink as their colors. Different treatment come to black or white sofa whose cushions is better given a contrasting color.
