7 Useful Ideas for Acrylic Ghost Chairs

Ghost chairs are made injecting polycarbonate into a mold. The incredible design has no junctions or seams; just a continuous shape.

The style is easily recognizable thanks to their oval back and straight seat and legs. The ghost chair composition makes them extra durable and scratch resistant. These wonderful items can add a modern touch everywhere. To prove my point let’s take a look at some different settings for the ghost chairs.

Let’s start with the most common place for a chair; the living room. As we can see in this picture the  living room  is rather traditional with traditional elements.

The black and white magic design

The world is leaded by some essential principles. One of them, and probably the most known and loved one, is what Latins called ‘coincidentia oppositorum’, or, in English, the attraction of the opposites principle. This is also the fund of Asian philosophy concept Yin and Yang. Visual, this attraction between day and night, light and darkness, good and bad, Sun and Moon was expressed by the juxtaposition of two simple colors: white and black. Since Ancient times this combination was a very loved one, not only for the contrastive chromatic effect, but also for its meaning. You will be amazed if you’ll take your time and analyze the simple objects around you. You’ll see that many things around you are black and white. A good example is the chessboard.

Besides its deep meaning, this combination is one of a very good and fine taste. Almost all visual arts play with this meaningful combination. Interior design is one of them. Designers use these colors together to create some refined spaces. If the pure color is too strong for you, you can choose different shades of white and black, every variant offering a new effect. Any space of your house can be painted in black and white and the effect will always be amazing, without fearing a failure. There’ no way you’ll make a mistake with white and black!

Inspiring game rooms decorating ideas

Not everyone has a game room, but I am sure everyone wants one. I know I do. A game room’s design is very important because you must feel really good in it. After all, it is conceived for your own fun and relaxation. More than this, a game room is a socializing room. You will not be the only one to enter it and most of the time, familiar or more official persons will pass by.

The design of a pool room depends not only on your tastes and on your entire home design, but also on what type of game you choose to reserve it for. Most often we see game rooms destined for billiard, but if you have enough space you can have your own bowling alley, your ping pong room, your home golf, home theatre, poker, table soccer room, pinball or any other game passing through your mind.

21 Dining room design ideas for your home

A formal dining room is a room that only the luxurious houses have. As its naming says, this room is not made for daily or colloquial use, but for special, official events. Still being a dining room, it is necessarily furnished with a long dining table and the afferent seats. In here you can have an official business meeting or a very important familial one, you can receive guests or you can celebrate at special events and holydays.

There are plenty designs for a formal dining room, depending on the owner’s taste and style. However there are some constants that must be present in any dining room. For starters, the table should usually gather six chairs, more or less, depending on the space. However, the room reserved for this purpose should be able to offer enough space because no one wants to eat in a cloister space. All the furniture from the formal dining room should be high quality and even luxurious. Most often the furniture is made from different types of high quality wood. There are some modern formal dining rooms, but most of them are more classical, closer to an official style.
