Technology. Cars. Technology in cars. Bluetooth controlled appliances. Smartphone controlled automated home programming. Remote control curtains. Weather controlled sun-shades. Interactive thermostats….Everything in design is getting so complicated these days. Jean pockets adorned with gems, jewels, beads and embroidery. LED’s embedded into nearly anything with electricity and some things that never needed it. Over-design is rampant—even when it comes to home décor. Ironically, while its easy to say things like “less is more,” or “Simplicity is the ultimate Sophistication,” da Vinci never raised a kid in the post-Cosby-Show day and age of the digital revolution….he never even saw it coming.
As it turns out, it takes far more discipline, effort, and design acumen to execute something that is both simple and extremely well done; both sophisticated and fun.
Each season the Lovesac design team aim to introduce a new look—a carefully designed and curated selection of colors, fabrics, Sac and Sactionals covers paired with tasteful home accessories to complete a cohesive look. For Spring 2014 we introduce: the COLOR collection.
In reaction to the over-design, over-programming, and over-embellishment so pervasive today, the COLOR collection explores 2 design aesthetics and applies them over Sacs, Sactionals, throw pillows and blankets. One: primary and complimentary colors. Two: basic geometric shapes such as rectangles, squares, circles, triangles, and Spheres.
Looking at some of these behind-the-scenes images from our Spring 2014 Lovesac COLOR line photoshoot in Connecticut—do you have a room in your home that could get back to the basics?
