The Art of Functional Styling with Clocks.

If you have been wondering what your walls or shelves are missing, it could be just the right time to invest in a clock!

Combining function with aesthetics, the clock is one of the most useful yet most underrated accent piece for the home.

Seen as an every-day object but often taken for granted, the ye ol’ faithful clock is one accessory a home just can’t live without! Time is precious so making the most of it essential! A clock can help us to keep perfect time while making a striking statement piece for any room.

Keeping good time isn’t the only reason why a clock is so important for a home setting. Despite its functionality, a beautiful clock can create just the right amount of visual interest without being too overpowering. A clock works well as an alternative to an artwork as it offers dimension, plus its round shape helps to bring visual balance to a space.

Adding a contrasting round shape helps to soften a space and allows the eye to rest. A circle creates a sense of balance and harmony against the angular / lineal geometry of an interior. A round object will also provide relief against the harshness of too many straight lines such as rectangular or square objects within a room, for example; tables, cabinetry, televisions etc.

Best on Trend Clocks

A wall clock looks great in any room of the house but is especially ideal for entry’s and hallway’s to create a lovely focal point that allows you to check the time as you come and go. A wall clock is also light weight, making it simple to affix to the wall via an appropriate hook or hanging system.

Alternatively a free-standing clock is the perfect accessory for styling a bed side table, office desk, book case, shelf or mantel piece. Dotting a few strategically placed clocks around the house will ensure you are never late again!

Wall clocks and free-standing clocks are fast becoming the ultimate accessory and the passing of time has never looked so elegant. An object that was once as considered a utility has now evolved to take on a more design orientated, decorative appearance. The humble clock can now be considered an alternative to wall décor and used to create a striking art piece.
