Get the right size

The key to styling a chest of drawers like Contador, for example, is to create a balanced and effective layout that elevates the beauty and patina of the piece. You can incorporate accessories from various shapes, height and dimensions and choose items related to your personal style like an uncommon lamp, a sculpture, or ceramics.

Justify

Media units styling is often a balancing act that you can play around with over time. If you are using a Radio sideboard to support a television, you will need little more creativity to place your accessories. So justifying it to one side is a great way to balance out the other side and an easy rule to follow.

Colors and art

Colored rugs and paintings are the perfect complements to bring life to an oak sideboard like Scarpa. If it’s not possible to hang up a painting, you can simply lean it securely. This will add height and complete the overall look.

Geometry

A creative or design oak bookshelf like X2, for example, is the perfect piece to play with geometry in styling, particularly in a more traditional setting. To really make your bookshelf a statement piece, explore all the shapes and place heavy items at the bottom and small decoration elements, like a stylish candle, at the top to enhance the scale.

Simplicity

For a simple and sophisticated look, emphasize the warmth of the timber choosing a sideboard with a marble top or place a mirror with a frame made from the same wood above it.
