There is no way you can miss the Canape sofa by Lila Lang. One half is an old-fashioned, curvy style; the other half appears to be climbing the wall. You have to admit there is something whimsical about this design. On one hand, it fulfills a function (a place to sit); on the other hand, it’s a piece of art. If you tilt your head and view the wall as the floor, you will notice the piece is almost symmetrical so it can fit right or left corners. This design was featured in an exhibition (Parcours Saint Germaine) in Paris.

There are plenty of beige hues to play with, from soft cream to dark sand. You can easily layer them within one room and awaken the traditional ambiance. Use the brightest hues of beige to capitalize on the room’s incredible lightness, but balance the scale by framing some wall art in black frames.
