The ethnic chic style: when modern and exotic meet creating a unique style.
Away from the explosions of colour and the abundance of boho chic style ornaments, the ethnic chic style is perfectly suited to the contemporary taste for minimalist furniture, without renouncing the exotic influences of countries such as Africa, Latin America or the East.
The ethnic chic style is based on functional and quality furniture and ethnic objects typical of different cultures that mixed together create an unique, welcoming domestic environment, with sober and natural lines.
Before starting to buy furniture and objects of all kinds and mix them together at random you should first decide on the main style of reference and then add a few complements or accessories from other cultures without compromising the harmony of the environment.
In the choice of accessories for ethnic chic furniture the watchword is suggestion; the objects that will decorate the house can therefore be original memories taken from your travels, such as vases, jewels, tapestries, fabrics, lanterns, gnarled branches, candles and bowls …
A fundamental characteristic of the ethnic chic style is the attention to the contrast between colours, dimensions and materials of the furniture. It is therefore advisable to focus on the chiaroscuro effect between furniture and walls, the colour balance and the matching of materials.
An elegant and curious style, yes ethnic, but with a strong tendency towards sober colours, clean lines and a refined character, in which the colours are inspired by the warm tones of the earth and the decorations by travel souvenirs.
