CategoriesHome DesignTagged , , , ,

Be it an all-time classic movie, a romantic comedy or the latest adaptation of Stephen King’s thrilling work, everyone loves flopping on the couch and enjoying a good movie. But while the storyline, actors and directors steal the limelight, the audience often forgets the subtle element that sets the mood for your favourite scenes and creates some of the most iconic movie moments: the furniture.

A homeowner tries to sketch his imaginary future in his house with all its décor and furniture. While you are at it, why not use that same imagination to create the look and sensation as produced in a film set?

The American science fiction and loosely based comedy film series were incredibly popular when it was released. However, it was not the goo, the great action scenes or Will Smith’s knockabout reactions alone that made the movie work; I’m sure you’ve noticed how the unique and exotic design elements were displayed throughout the franchise. And, the famous of all is the agents’ egg-shaped chairs. 

While you can’t have the same futuristic and attitude-filled chair, you can certainly buy the right-coloured egg chair to reflect the curvaceous vibrancy of the 60s in your home.

When it comes to Harry Potter, fans are so obsessed (count me with them) that even a few chairs are not left behind. 

A few years ago, the crowd went seriously wild when two vintage chairs were displayed at Etwall auction. But, that’s totally expected; after all, they were magical chairs. As one of the most filmed places, the Gryffindor’s common room was predominantly red with vintage and reddish-hued armchairs. 

From a potterhead’s perspective, old and worn-out doesn’t matter, as long as you have something that played a role in the movie.

I don’t know if it’s the gut-wrenching storyline, the “Jessica Jingle” that gets stuck in your head or the class rage that’s literally everywhere throughout the plot that has driven the movie to insanely huge popularity, but one thing is for sure: the house and the furniture deserves its share of glory. 

Everything in the Park House – from chairs to lamps – was custom-made by a South Korean carpenter named Bahk Jong Sun. The latter intentionally chose a combination of sleek and angular aesthetics with an inspiration from ancient Korean furniture to create an elaborate world designed only for the rich. 

If you’ve watched the movie, you must remember the first time when Mrs. Park met Kevin. Well, apparently that cherry wood dining table costs around 20 000 €. 

Hire some professional furniture designers like Woolstore Furniture in Australia and you’ll have the same dining table with its clean design of mid-century Scandinavian modernism.

Yeah baby….(if you’ve watched the movies, you got the reference, lol.)

Originally designed by the artist Salvador Dali, the Mae West’s inspired lip-shaped sofas gained significant popularity after its showcase in the American comedy film. 

Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more eye-catching – or should I say sensual – statement piece in my whole life.

I guess the orange sofa – the central prop of the sitcom- played an important role as much as the characters in creating the epic essence of the show. And, to say that fans would be thrilled to own this grade- A sofa that was the source of many memorable scenes in Friends history, would be an understatement.

The Capitol train on which Katniss and Peeta embarked was filled with semicircular blue swivel chairs – chairs trimmed in dark wood and costing around $ 400-600. 

How would you feel if you could relax in one of those chairs and read a nice book – the latest of Suzanne Collins maybe?
