Design The Essentials:

The BASICS: Every Piece Your Living Room Needs

Words by Sacha Strebe.

If there’s one style mantra we have on repeat at EyeSwoon HQ it’s “elevate the everyday.” Because really, why not? From the laundry room to your kitchen shelves, and even the tiny parlor bathroom, every single surface, object, and wall of your home should feel special. Of course, it does take a little reimagining but where there’s a will there’s a way—and in our minds, even the most functional items should be worthy of display. From vintage ceramic vessels that double as utensil holders in the kitchen to marble toilet brush holders that put the pretty in practical, we’re on a mission to make the mundane meaningful with our series, The BASICS.  Beauty with utility? Yes, please!

If the kitchen is the heart of the home, then the living room is the soul. This is where we come to feel at ease at the end of a long day or converse with friends late into the night with candles flickering. It’s the coziest space outside of your bedroom so every piece needs to be thoughtfully considered, tapping into curation and collectability through the lens of comfort. As we curated living room essentials for this edition of our series, The BASICS, we chose pieces that tied into this style meets service philosophy to create a space that is functional with meaning in equal parts.
