The Modena sofa and Bermuda footstool, styled by The Design Chaser.

This peaceful living space is an inspiring example of how to style elegant neutrals with plenty of interest

Founded in 1952, Danish design company BoConcept has been a leader in the realm of contemporary yet timeless, minimal yet customisable furniture for decades. Thanks to its core tenets of meticulous craftsmanship, utmost attention to detail and exceptional materials, the global furniture retailer has not only grown to hundreds of stores spanning six continents, but has done so without compromising its reputation for excellence and design with integrity.

That the company’s designs are able to be personalised is also central to its offering, with around 80-to-90 percent of its furniture able to be adapted for size, colour, components or material. Individuality joins functionality to create long-beloved pieces, integrating within (and enhancing) a wide variety of lifestyles and aesthetics.

BoConcept recently tapped The Design Chaser’s Michelle Halford to style a few of its pieces in her incredibly chic living space, including the Modena sofa and the Bermuda footstool. Given her love of the Scandinavian aesthetic, the interior stylist, design consultant and influencer has long been a fan of the brand, and the aforementioned versatility also appealed greatly when it came to selecting a size of sofa and finish of fabrics.

With its organic yet refined silhouette and softly curved edges, the Modena sofa was designed by Morten Georgsen to bridge the gap between casual comfort and elevated elegance. Halford, who chose to upholster both the sofa and the Bermuda footstool in BoConcept’s Lazio fabric, loves that the sofa complements her existing Danish-designed pieces while refreshing the space.

A textural bouclé, Lazio is the perfect tactile finish for minimalist forms, delivering a hefty dose of dimension and softness. With the warm, white shade of the Modena sofa and grey-undertoned beige for the Bermuda footstool, the overall effect is peaceful, sophisticated and tonally cohesive, with plenty of interest from varying textures and shapes — perfectly in keeping with the aesthetic both BoConcept and Halford hold dear.
