The Denmark-based lifestyle brand BoConcept, founded in 1952 by Jens Ærthøj and Tage Mølholm, continues to revolutionize the design world thanks to its wide range of Scandinavian furniture, showcasing the latest in Nordic style and design. Co-Owners Stephane and Stephanie Duval chose the extraordinary brand because of its continued goal of creating furniture that exhibited “simplicity, craftsmanship, elegant functionality and quality materials.” The Duvals currently own two stunning showrooms in both Los Angeles and Orange County, allowing you to work with an expert design consultant familiar with the endless customization possibilities that BoConcept is known for providing. Check out these five savvy design tips that Stephanie has formulated to guide you when incorporating modern design in your home!
1 | Get Familiar With the World Around You Interior Design Tips
“First of all, we need to understand how you live. There are many elements that will help a design consultant show you the right products; pets, kids or if you often have plenty of guests are all things that should be taken into consideration.”
Native Knowledge: Social media influencers, interior design-focused magazines and, of course, the gorgeous LA and OC BoConcept showrooms are excellent places for you to derive inspiration when designing a space. From choosing colors to a full home makeover, BoConcept’s exceptional design consultants will make sure your design dreams become a reality.
“Today, functionality and customization are key. When looking at a space, communication between a design consultant and customer is very important when trying to understand what you really like. Don’t buy something that you are not 100 percent convinced about.”
3 | Be the Host With the Most Interior Design Tips
“BoConcept’s versatile furniture designs, such as the extendable tables, are possible products to consider if you are alone during the week. But on the weekends, [when] you host friends and family, you want to be able to, within a few seconds, open up your table and have plenty of extra space to entertain.”
Native Knowledge: The customization options of every BoConcept product, down to the handle on a single drawer, is endless! Stephanie mentions that “customization and functionality” are two key components she, as well as other skilled BoConcept design consultants, take into consideration when working with a client. “I am never going to sell the same exact piece of furniture twice,” she says.
“Take into consideration the dimensions of your space and a design consultant can help you come up with the best solution for your living, even in smaller spaces often found in Southern California. Think about storage and how you can optimize a product to make the best use of a small space.”
5 | Less Is More
“What we as design consultants are continuing to notice is that people are embracing the philosophy of ‘less is more.’ They want to hide anything they can to make their space look clean, cool and relaxing.”
Native Knowledge: Aside from the worthwhile services available at every BoConcept location, the Duvals are utilizing their showrooms to help educate and spark change within their own community. BoConcept hosts a variety of events within their showroom, including top architect and design speakers, doctors that focus on meditation and wellbeing, and local realtors.
