The Elements of Color, Shape, and Texture

The choices made when choosing color, shape, and texture of material tell us about the room, the owner, and their artistic vision. Colors have deep, subconscious effects on us and the choice of one color over another can have significant impact on the individual piece as well as the overall design statement of the room and home.

Shape is the outline of a piece, and whether it is for example, organic or geometric tells about how it should be interactive with. The texture of an object choices for interior design communicates several things. The object is to have direct contact with the body texture can be either inciting or have the opposite effect,leaving you less then pleased. When the object is to be merely seen, texture can add dimension to the room, or invite contact and interaction.

All three of these elements are well represented in the Montreal Sectional sofa. The shape of this gorgeous sofa combines modern elements in that it has a frame made of straight lines which speak of minimalism. The color is a warm cream that is at once comforting and symbolizes purity and fresh beginnings. The texture of this piece is smooth, supple full grain leather that invites you to touch it and get comfortable on it. The tufted seat cushions and the wooden legs of this piece work together to complement the tufted cushions in creating a piece that is at once minimalist and is open to being mixed with various elements to create the foundation of a transitional design shema.
