2.light fixtures.

"Light fixtures that command attention, not only to brighten up the room. Shown here we used three for that added impact paired with unique shaped mirrors. Your eyes has to fight where to go first."

We agree! Even if you have huge windows, you can bring some extra light into your home with more lamps and lighting. Find light fixtures that command attention and double as beautiful statement pieces. They can be round, triangular or linear, the main takeaway here is that they should be an instant eye catcher.

The Ikram Gold Chandelier and the Noir Cylindrical Black Metal Chandelier are both starling in size and breath taking. If you are looking for a more simple upgrade you can find bold floor or table lamps, or hang some beautiful sconces for some gentle, flattering light.

3.color.

"Color is an integral part of the avant-garde style. Colors are solid and bold as this unexpected bold pink horse head shown here."

The right colors can make all the difference in space. This style is bold and demands bold colors to successfully achieve the look. Solid colors are seen throughout the space and often are used in different design elements.

Avant-garde interiors do not demand a lot of decorative objects, but a good piece of art or sculpture can accent a room wonderfully. Consider color filled sculptures or wall art such as the Global View Gem Metallic Set as a way to incorporate pops of color into your home.

4.Non CONVENTIONAL SHAPES.

"Furniture pieces are like the characters in your room story; like this sofa that has unexpected curves and irregular lines paired with an end table with faces and half moon coffee table/ottoman duo shown here."

What really pulls this style together is the furniture, pull inspiration from geometric shapes, such as circles, triangles and rectangles when picking key furniture pieces. Pick pieces that inspire you mixing different genres and creating one beautiful coherent look is what avant-garde is all about.

Slight formality is seen in this space but is not over done. Think of the Interlude Dana Left Chaise and Noir multi-face stool, traditionally they belong together but visually they are out of the ordinary but stunning.

5. disrespect the rules.

"We used a super shiny gold tile to make this tiny bathroom pop to perfection! We like to refer this project as our golden shower."

Avant-garde style is known for pushing the envelope when it comes to rules. This style is daring and bold and is constantly evolving. Living spaces that are true to the avant-garde style have bold finishes, you will also find unique and sometimes oversized silhouette inspired by geometric shapes.

Include design elements that are dramatic and eye catching. Check out the Noir Cubist Dark Walnut Bookcase, this is the perfect example of not choosing the norm. Geometric shapes inspired the design of this bookcase and the result? A distinctive and astounding piece of furniture that will not go unnoticed.
