To work with an awkward column, the designers of this interior built a planter with a bench that incorporates the column, and draws the eye to the lighting and plants, helping the column to 'disappear' and blend into its surroundings. #Column #InteriorDesign #Planter #BuiltInPlanter

 

Columns in an awkward place can be frustrating to deal with, they can create odd spaces that are often unsuitable to do anything with, however designer Lemmo Francesca came up with a solution that made use of an otherwise useless space. His solution was to create a built-in planter with bench seating, that incorporates the column and adds greenery to the interior.

By painting the walls and ceiling white, using white gravel, the white painted column almost blends into the background. The designer worked with lighting technician Roberto Paraciani, to install lighting on the wall and in the planter, to draw your eye away from the column and to highlight the bright green plants.
