Museum halls with a seating area, which can be seen but not touched, are a thing of the past. Now, they are much more vivid and welcoming. Without sacrificing style, these are environments where functionality is a sine quan non condition. To succeed in its decoration and distribution, you always have to think about what activities will be carried out in it: watch television, enjoy social gatherings and lively talks, have dinner sitting on the sofa, take a nap… and answer all these questions: do you need a reading or sewing corner? one of work or study? A play area for children?
