Guidelines for Bauhaus furniture

     Today we will speak about some ideas what furniture to add in our room if it is expected to be decorated and furnished in Bauhaus style. The design of the furniture following the lines of the Bauhaus have the following characteristics:

  •  The used materials must be organic and natural (such as wood, leather, glass and metal)
  •  The main color but not absolutely necessary is the Black color.
  •  They have smooth shapes, consistent with the anatomical features of the human body.
  •  Many of them are with oval and rounded shapes.

     Take for example this glass and wood coffee table typical representative of Bauhaus style. The table is created form only three main parts, the glass top which is rounded in its three corners and the base which is consisted from two solid hardwood legs. The table is based on the designs of Noguchi made in 1940's. As we can see here we have clean and simple forms from natural materials as the base of the table is colored in black. 

      Another representative of this style is this sofa. This is reproduction of Hoffmann’s designs. The sofa keeps to traditional forms and is shaped like square. The sofa is designed with hardwood base with added on top black leather. Here we have another point of the Bauhaus style the classic box stitched squares that are turned into classic and are used in many furniture designs and not only the one made in Bauhaus style.

There are many more examples of furniture that will fit the room you prepared to make in Bauhaus style, but these main guidelines will help you choose the right ones for your home.
