Five Things We Love at Modernbrands Cebu

From modular sofas to daybeds, below are the five pieces we love from Modernbrands Cebu’s collection from the Danish sofa bed specialist, Innovation Living.

There’s a new furniture company in Cebu! The Zee editorial team got to test out their offerings during an afternoon of oooh-inducing demonstrations and pleasant conversations.

From modular sofas to daybeds, below are the five pieces we love from Modernbrands Cebu’s collection from the Danish sofa bed specialist, Innovation Living. Try not to order them straight to your door.

 

Ghia Laser HH Legs

Ghia in 520 Mixed Dance Grey

It doesn’t hurt to expect unexpected sleepovers. With the Ghia daybed, you don’t have to look for an extra bed because it is the extra bed. It has a three-step elevation on each side that allows you to lounge (or fall asleep) in different angles.

 

Filuca

Filuca in 519 Elegance Petrol

 

Filuca will help you make the most of your square meters. This oval-shaped sofa bed transforms into a lounger, a double bed, or two single beds. And what’s more, two of its legs have wheels. Talk about ease and comfort!

 

LOB Sofa Bed

LOB Sofa Bed in 216 Flashtex Slight Grey

This simple yet stylish sofa bed turns into a double bed using a slide-and-flip mechanism. Its mattress is comfortable and supportive but not deep. It comes with a hidden storage for sheets and blankets, too.

 

Gyda Puff Foldable Bed Quilt

Gyda Puff in 541 Velvet Dark blue

This multipurpose ottoman is proof that appearances can be deceiving. Using a simple folding mechanism, the Gyda transforms into a bed. It has a memory foam mattress, which relieves pain and evenly supports each part of your body by contouring to your curves. A good night’s sleep (or an afternoon nap) is guaranteed.

 

Cubed 90

Cubed 90 in 528 Mixed Dance Blue

 

If you don’t feel like sharing your personal space (we all have those days), Cubed 90 is for you. When not used as a chair to relax on, it converts into a bed.

 

If you need more options for the perfect sofa bed to sprawl on for a Netflix marathon or a reading session, check out the Modernbrands Cebu showroom. They have what you’re looking for, and more!

Part 4:  Upgrade your Choices

A.  Create different moods with lighting. The use of warm colored indirect lighting such as lamps, colored LED back lights, or even string lights can create a cozy and relaxing vibe after a day’s work.

 

Beautiful lighting can transform a small modern apartment.

 

B.)  Convert to smart home systems. From door locks, CCTV cameras, you’ll also be able to control and turn on lights, appliances even if you’re away from home. All you need is a wifi connection and the applications on your mobile phone.

Smart phone apps can also control lights and home appliances.

C.) Hire a professional interior designer. We always get an impression that hiring a professional would be expensive, but they actually help you make the best choices and save you from making bad purchases.

Go over design options and your color palette with a professional interior designer to get better results and save more.

Trendy Home & Condo Renovation Tips. Part 3

Part 3: Maximize Impact of Small Spaces

A.)  Storage spaces. You can go with concealed storage systems such as built-in cabinets on walls, under the bed or seating. Keep the items that you use often more reachable than the occasional ones. Choose what works best for your space and for your convenience.

There are many affordable storage options to de-clutter your room.

B.)  Showcase your collection of interesting conversation pieces, like items you acquire from past travels, an artwork, an heirloom, coffee table books or a collector’s item. Make sure to save a special place for them in your home.

Your personal collections can be nice decorative pieces.

C.)  Move things around to attract renewed energy into your space. May it be moving a sofa to the adjacent wall, creating a dining nook near a window, shuffling your accessories on to a different shelf? Little efforts go a long way.

Update your living/family areas with bright color accents that complement the dining area.

Part 2:  Create Visual Interest

A.)  Update your space with a fresh coat of paint. Some would love the white / minimalist theme, but one must also not be afraid to make a bold statement and have an accent wall, or even a wall mural.

A new coat of paint can add that bold accent to your kitchen or room.

B.)  Mix materials and textures to create depth and contrast. Wallpaper is an amazing decorative material that you can use for an instant upgrade. Another inexpensive approach is to use patterns and texture on soft furnishings such as curtains, pillows and sheets.

A right mix of fabrics and textures gives an earthy color palette that sophisticated feel.

C.)  Setting up a coffee station, bar carts, vinyl corner, or workstation seems to be a trend to the young professionals nowadays.  Add functional pieces that serve as décor at the same time.

Your personal work space can show off your favorite items and will be your inspiration to be productive.
