When you invite someone into your home, you want them to feel comfortable. Not “take up residence on the sofa and stay a few weeks” comfortable, more like “take off your shoes and enjoy an aperitif” comfortable. There’s a lot to be said for how interior design can make guests feel welcome. These apartments from the designers at Workshop Art all utilize modern design elements in warm and inviting tones. The resulting spaces are exactly the kind of place you would want to bring a friend or two. Have a look.

Lucite dining chairs are designed to disappear into the design and indeed they do. Just make sure every guest has an actual chair underneath them before they go crashing to the ground.
