Last year, a National Association of Homebuilders
report projected that by 2015, living rooms may be extinct.
It got me thinking about the history
of this room…you know the whole
evolution since the 1920’s of ‘death room’
and ‘parlor’ to the modern living room.
It is a tad nutty that we continue to
refer to the most formal (in many cases)
space in the house as the room in which we live.
Semantics aside, no matter what the fate of this space,
I think we can agree the lovely ones here
are all breathing life.
The space above and those below
were designed by brilliant architects
and designers in Belgium featured in
The 100 Best Living Rooms (100 Best (Beta Plus))
from the Beta-Plus series.
Sanctuary comes to mind more than
‘living room’ in these examples, if you ask me.
Would love to drone on philosophizing
about such matters, but I need more time with
the glorious pages of
The 100 Best Living Rooms (100 Best (Beta Plus)).
And do you suppose formal dining rooms
may be extinct before long as well?
Peace to you right where you are.
