Collection Basket inspired by design and elegance

Modelled on the extraordinary weaving of the Kalife collection, from which it takes its inspiration, the Basket collection, launched in 2018, exudes daring and sophistication. New in 2019: a méridienne (available in left and right versions), a chaise longue, and two end tables, one minimalist and svelte and the other a reflection of the spirit of the collection (weaving and a marble top) expand the Basket line, enhancing those lovely moments of relaxation in the sun.

Collection Kalife Sun and azure sky inspired

Whether one is lazing by the pool, reading a book in the shade of a pine tree, or admiring the view of the Mediterranean from the terrace, the Kalife collection is an ode to the Côte d’Azur art of living. Designed by Eric Carrère, it boldly sports an original and elegant weave in polyester, complemented by comfortable, cosy cushions in fresh, colorful fabrics.

In 2019, Sifas adds another equally imposing piece: a four-poster bed with an adjustable polyester canopy and drapes. Relax and lounge in true Southern fashion. Kalife also adds a new bench in aluminium and Synteak, the perfect complement to the collection’s four-poster bed and other pieces.

Collection Korol inspired by the 1950’s

Round, with subdued, elegant lines, the Korol table evokes the New Look launched by Christian Dior in the 1950s, particularly the Corolle dress. Original and elegant, the Korol table matches perfectly with all Sifas dining chairs (Basket, Oskar, Komfy) and easily imparts to our summer terraces an air both timeless and avant-garde. The round shape calls for conviviality and the joy of sharing a good meal among friends and family under the Mediterranean sunshine.

New in 2019: this season, the Korol collection incorporates a new oval table. The ample size fits 6 diners around the table for a delicious snack or a tasty Provençal meal. Just like the collection’s round tables, the oval Korol table features an impressive marble-look HPL tabletop

Patio design ideas

During summer we in general tend to invest more quality time outside with pleasant evenings in solace of our yards or overhangs, having loved ones over for grills and sunsets. As the weather gets warmer, now is the time to seriously start considering and focusing on updating your patio and balcony. At Spacio we have devised simple ideas that you can apply to transform any sized outdoor space into a stylish and relaxing area making it a peaceful oasis.

Choose a weather resistant material like this statement piece from Gardeco. You can easily get intimidated by this sophisticated piece which will stand out and amplify as your personal style.

Want to add a touch of fun to your outdoor space? Cue the colorful accents. A terrace gets a bold pick-me-up from cushions in vibrant colors like yellow and modern prints like ikat, stripes, and eye-popping florals which can be added. Plus, swapping out your pillows is the easy and cost-effective way to upgrade your patio each season.

This stylish patio blends in beautifully with the natural environment thanks to the color scheme and materials. To make an outdoor space feel as put together as living room, introduce a wicker sofa, freestanding umbrella, and fire pit.

A relaxed seating area with a fire bowl allows the family to linger outdoors on cool evenings. A little bit of luxury is an essential element to any outdoor space. The fireplace can be a great alternative for candles which provides the ultimate illumination with a sophisticated touch.

Your furniture for outdoors can make or break it since it is the centre of attraction for the space. While choosing the furniture it should fit your vision. Think about whether there’s a view worth facing. Lightweight sturdy furniture which has been tested against the outdoor elements should be your choice. To sum it up you can even create an ambience by including an accent chairs and sleek tables for a beautiful tete-a-tete in your patio.

The Creative Head of Spacio Mr. Navin Kanodia says “Outdoor spaces are as important as indoor spaces, with just the right direction you can create and focus on patio styling with the above simple guidelines and change the dynamics of your house in totality.”

Discover the Ins and Outs of Pocket Doors (sliding doors)

Pocket doors will infuse an average space with architectural charm and can be great space savers— but they have their downsides, too. Spacio Designers give you here some coverage of both sides to help you decide if pocket doors are right for your new house or remodel.

 contemporary-bathroom

Many people adore pocket doors. Whether traditional or modern, they are a sneaky detail to enjoy every day and show off on your home tour. Hardware accents and facade finishes can dress up a plain pocket door panel and help it mesh with any interior design.

 bath-traditional-bathroom

The pocket door is an ideal solution for a tight bathroom where the wall space simply isn’t there to accommodate a full swinging door.

 master-bathroom-traditional-bathroom

In addition to bathrooms, they’re good for closets or as connections between the two areas. Cladding the pocket door panel with a mirror for such applications further justifies the choice.

 traditional-kitchen

Pocket doors are good for giving a space physical privacy within a larger area, such as an office nook off the kitchen. The wood stain of this door is a nice contrast against all the white of the kitchen cabinets, and it marks the separation of spaces.

 contemporary-bathroom-new

Pocket doors are space savers in the bathroom, as already mentioned, but the way they sit on their tracks means they don’t seal as tightly as a conventional door.

 

They will not create acoustic privacy. As gorgeous as these modern extra-wide doors are, the sounds of children playing are sure to be heard in the adjacent spaces. That’s not so good if you’re working or sleeping, but it’s very good if you’re taking care of small children.

 childrens-room-mordern-kids

A partial-height pocket door offers an elegant solution for keeping dogs or kids safe in one space.

 open-kitchen-living-room

Pocket doors allow you to play with textures and new materials without making a big statement,as the doors will remain tucked away some of the time.

 bathroom

They also offer an opportunity to incorporate architectural salvage and period-specific details to a historic house. They’re heavy, so install them on sturdy hardware.

 home-tour-kitchen

Extra-tall doors look amazing, but they can be difficult to roll, hard to lock and challenging for smaller family members.

 modern-bathroom

Pocket doors can help to regulate access to the outdoors in a breathtaking manner. But having an intricate system of multiple sliding pocket doors means that the structural integrity of the wall can be reduced, because the door cavity sits where wall studs would be located. Be sure to discuss your vision with an architect or engineer.

 structural-engineering

If you have a say in the wall thickness, try to install your pocket doors in walls thicker than 4
inches. It will make for a sturdier wall and door system overall.

We hope that the above article would give you a fair idea on the ins and the outs of the Pocket
Doors!
