7 Benefits of a Majilis Style Lounge

August 21, 2017 The Amateurs Digest 0

A Majilis style lounge is a design that springs from Arabian culture and can be seen in the superyacht White Rabbit, designed by Sam Sorgiovanni, as well as in some of the many other yachts he has designed. It basically caters to the Arabian way of relaxation, which is to recline rather than sit.

The lounges have no legs but sit directly on the floor and are placed around three sides of the room, leaving the middle clear so people can communicate easily. However, very low tables may be included for those who find them necessary.

The Majilis style lounge is made from foam and includes comfortable cushions and dividers. The materials covering the foam are usually crafted in the kind of beautiful, rich colours that are often seen in such setting.

August 24, 2016 The Amateurs Digest 0

Older people would remember that some years ago the latest trend was to bring the outside in with the use of floor to ceiling windows and some landscape design elements repeated inside. Nowadays one of the latest trends is to take the inside out. According to villa experts Easy Villas this is done by creating comfortable outdoor spaces that mimic the inside or creating an oasis to give you the feeling that you are on holidays in a nice villa. There are outdoor kitchens, comfortable seating, fire pits  or a chiminea to create warmth and solid pavement of some kind underfoot so we don’t get muddy feet should it rain.

In fact, there is often a roof over the space in order to shelter us from a sudden shower, or shade of some kind – perhaps from a sail – and don’t forget the windbreak. This can be a stone wall, or a lattice with vines growing over it, a clear plastic ‘wall’ or almost anything else that will create a little bit of shelter from the prevailing breeze.

But it is important that everything is done properly. In fact, when you install a pool, that’s not the only thing that needs to be done. You need proper landscaping and a automatic kreepy krauly as well as a safety fence, so choose pool builders that do it all, for the least amount of stress.

If you choose a company that just does the pool and nothing else, there will be a lot of hassle and stress as you try to get someone in to install the safety fence and then another company to attend to the landscaping so your pool doesn’t look like it’s sitting on an alien planet with heaps of soil or rock spread over what was once your lawn.
