Several of us here own a flat or a house and are looking for things to fill it with.
This is the thread to ask for people's good ideas on furnitures and decorative things. If you have an old furniture you want to replace or lack, and need some idea, post it here and see what members suggest :).

I will make a try.
I would like to ask for good ideas on furnitures and decorative things :)
This is the studio of the 2 bedrooms apartment. (the bedrooms are not shown, they are on the right hand side)
One dimension is shown, so other dimensions can be calculated easily.
The place for the kitchen is determined.
This is a place where many young people could spend time.

First I would like to determine different zones. The TV zone will probably be to the right hand side. But I don't know how to organize the whole place.

Alright, so what's the floor like? Are the walls and ceilling painted? What colour? Do you plan to make it a home cinema? What's your styles? Modern? Industrial? How high is the ceilling?
I'd like to have some information on the flat.
Considering the geometry of the main room, you won't be able to have a really good sound, you need a rectangle shaped room for a good sound.

- last floor
- 2.7m height ceilings.
- about 100 sq.m.
- floor, ceiling, walls - all are concrete now
- a home cinema is a good idea.
- I would like to have several different areas.
- the style should NOT be classical - possible a club looking style with interesting features.
- NOT boring, could be even somehow shocking for an apartment.
- something that a designer wants to create but is not allowed to make by conservative customers :)

Seems the only place where you can put a TV is the "4 metres wall".
You could consider the TV stand.
It's up to you if a 52' TV might be too small for you or not. It would take half the lenght of the wall so you'd have 1m each side to put loudspeakers, more furnitures or whatever.
However because the rack is in a single color (excepted for some version like the silver one) I'd put some contrast with the wall behind. Like a painted large square in a color that contrasts with the rack but does not fit the entire wall. Be warned too you'll have a window on your back though and you might want to add extra light near the TV if you close the windows when watching movies. I'd put something like this stuck to the ceiling
It would add enough light without invading space. People would however tend to look at the ceiling, since tall though you may get a sensation of increased height. Up to your choice.
There is another variant which is larger and offers less space for putting DVDs and others but you can add some really strong hifi elements. I wouldn't advice it though since it's 243cm large you'd have only 75cm left each side, unless you really want some badass home cinema it's unlikely you'll need that much space for elements in the rack.
In the bigger, more open, area I suppose you could put a table. It's really down to the style you want. If you receive lots of young people you might want to avoid those who a marble or glass plate. Unless you really don't care about your money. Maybe something in aluminium or steel, it's more resistant although you'll still get scratches.
A glass table though would look great with the windows just behind, especially if the sun rises or sets in a proper angle.
In the kitchen I'd put a bar, like you have in some sushi bar, with maybe some Charles Ghost (http://www.madeindesign.com/prod-Charles-Ghost-Haut-H-75-cm-Kartell-ref4899-e3.html)

So large windows but it's not as bright and clear as you'd think it would. You want to avoid putting too much black in it or it'll made it really dark and will overwhelm the feeling. Coloured lights may also be a bad idea.
